Dream interpretation Drowning

When you see images of some being drowning, or feel the water closing in on you, it can certainly feel very upsetting. Before you decide this is a dream based on emotions or some other non-tangible factor, you might want to make sure the dream is not rooted in physical reality. Among other things, being hungry, or something as simple as a blanket or sheet slipping over your face and nose can induce this type of dream. Once you are certain that the dream does not have a physical basis, you can look to other modes of interpretation.

General Dream Meaning: Drowning

Drowning can easily symbolize drowning in debt, social obligation, or other areas in which you are "over your head". In particular, if you dream of someone else drowning, the odds increase that the dream represents a situation beyond your control. If the drowning is preceded by sinking, then you can consider this a magnification of the theme "overwhelmed".

While many feel this dream tends to be related to emotional issues, it can also represent issues or thoughts from your past that you have been trying to suppress. Oddly enough, if you dream of dying in a dream, it may mean that you are about to experience a rebirth or regeneration. Fortunately, if you survive the drowning event, it may indicate new beginnings, but you will have to overcome a difficult situation.

How Dream Symbol Drowning May Fit in Your Life

Even though a dream of drowning may leave you feeling overwhelmed and shaken, you can still use it to your advantage. At the very least, if you have been trying to suppress your insecurities, this dream will give you an opportunity to confront all of the problems that have been building up in your life. You may even be surprised to find that these dreams will serve as an indicator that a once impossible path may now be open to you. No matter whether you are unable to cope with stress at work or at home, this dream can give you the necessary space to explore your feelings, and perhaps find a way out.

A Sample Dream, Drowning Dream Interpretation

Consider a dream where you were swimming in a beautiful lake. Suddenly, you develop a cramp and begin sinking into the water. Your friends are sitting on the bank of the lake, chatting and enjoying the weather. Frantically, you try to wave your hands and alert them that you need help. As your arms become tired, you slowly feel water creeping up to your chin, and finally over your head. Within a few seconds, you see a beautiful blue light and awaken in a field of beautiful flowers. One of your co-workers, dressed in silky garments offers you some food and wine. While you are eating the meal, you find yourself wondering why you were ever afraid of drowning to begin with.

In this dream, you should start off by understanding that you most likely feel overwhelmed by some type of relationship. Even though you call out and ask your friends to help you, their lack of response indicates that people around you are not aware of your feelings. The drowning event itself can be seen as the point at which you succumb to all of the stress and finally let go of it. Since you awaken in a beautiful place, you can conclude that your life will be better once you confront the situation. Awakening to helpful co-worker may indicate that you will find new levels of happiness in your career once you are no longer torn between it and other aspects of your life.

I had a dream before that my mom was trapped in a basement full of water and then she shouted the name of my sister then the second time I dreamt about some one else's was drowning this time it was my sister, I remember it very clearly that we were walking and there is a heavy down pour when she accidentally fell into a man hole and when I was trying to save her she was flushed by a rushed of water. I woke up that time Screaming. Same thing when it was my mom. I had palpitation and I felt that something bad is going to happen. Do you think that dreams can be premonition that something bad is going to happen? Please help me

I had a dream that I drove into a giant deep puddle and my sister was in the car with me which sank and then she was sinking/drowning and I went under water to save her and grabbed her arm and pulled her to the surface. Once out of the water, I could see other cars going around the puddle because the puddle was so obvious.

I had a dream that I was sleeping in a glass box and I could watch myself sleeping. Then water started to fill the medium sized box that I was in. Franticly I ran up to the box while myself still calmly sleeping inside, then started screaming for myself to wake up and banging on the box. The box reached full and I was still asleep after 20 seconds of flashing images of my childhood my eyes of the me in the box opened. Looking panicked the boxed in me stood up swam to the outside me and then placed her hands on mine and pulled me in through the glass box at that mid transfer moment I awoken drench in water. WTF?

I had a dream a friend was drowning and I tried to save them but it was too late. They were fishing and slipped on a rock and fell into the water. I can't swim but tied a rope around my waist and my kayak and jumped into the water to get her. I draped her over my kayak but was unable to properly rescitate her and by the time I got her to shore it was too late. What does this mean?

I have had two dreams of me drowning while someone else drove the car into a lake or pond. 1st time was my husband driving and he intentionally drove through a fence into a lake. 2nd time was a high school acquaintance who I have not seen or spoken to in 20+ years. She was trying to drive to higher ground during a flood but ended up driving into the water instead.

I keep having a reoccurring dream about my four year old son drowning and I can't seem to save him. I would see him going near a lake and I would scream and tell him Kaiden come back here . He then will turn, look at me and smile , then jump in the lake with alligators knowing he can't swim. Every time it's always a lake with Alligators, and I can never save him. I have a phobia of water so that really don't help. This is stressing me out.

I have never dreamed of drowning before. Instead, I often dream of being quite near to the sea. Sometimes I am at the seashore (on a safe distance ), other times I am watching the sea from a window of a tall building that is quite near the sea. I once dreamt that the sea came to the garden of my house (it was a sea tide, I knew that, cause my house was not that close to the sea).
Sometimes the sea is blue and clear, other times is stormy (either way, it gives me the shivers, it's never something pleasant). The tide element is always present, because the sea is always 'trying to get me'. And I always stand somewhere safe and unreachable, aware that most probably I will be ok but always fearing the otherwise. There are dreams where I try to save other people from being engulfed by the sea, because they are not as lucky as I am. In the end I always end up OK, the sea never gets to me. But the feeling it awakens into me is dreadful.

May I just add that even though I love swimming, I have always related the sea with the city I spent most of my life in. I really hate this city, the life I had there, it's people and what it represents.

The only time I dreamt of almost drowning, I felt relief. I entered in my old house. Everything (furniture, people etc) was gone and the house was burned to the ashes (idk why). The ceiling was gone (actually one of the rooms was never finished so it never had the ceiling, so it's not like I made it up in my dream). As I was walking, I felt devastated, as if I had returned from a journey to find everything I loved gone. In the corner of the room there were these three concrete open boxes and inside two of them were two bodies. The woman was wearing blue jeans and a red blouse, the man was wearing blue jeans and blue shirt. Actually, they were literally Tony Almeida and Michelle Dessler from 24 - season 5. With the same outfit and same look. But to me they meant something dear. Their bodies were floating side to side in the concrete boxes. It had started to rain (it was a soft rain that was washing the ashes away and dirtying everything around with the mud - like mixture that was created). I lied in the box in between and I was weeping slowly. As the rain filled the box, I would just look at their faces and let the water cover my body little by little. The sense of despair and of being lost from moments ago was being washed away as I felt I was drifting myself.
PS: I have been having dreams related to water (mainly sea) for more than 5 years now. I never get scared or have nightmares. I can mock a whole bunch of hideous monsters in my dreams and bare any pain or misfortune. But these dreams I have leave me with a horrifying taste, as if I am lost, hopeless, so small and defenseless, my soul being suffocated. As if in every inch of approaching water, something suppresses me.

I had a dream that there was an ingured woman on a plane In a quarantine room. The plane started to shake and then fell apart. She was strapped to a bed and the bed was falling out of the sky and into the sea. I watched the bed sink and she was screaming really loudly and lashing out in the bed. It really frightened me!
