Dream interpretation Tidal Wave, Tsunami

If you have ever been surfing, chances you will always feel awed by the walls of water that surround you as you head for the beach. While videos of tsunamis and their damage may also evoke some fear, there is no question that they also remind you of the awesome power of nature. Therefore, when you dream of tsunamis, you may not want to focus just on the “overwhelming” nature of whatever may be going on in your life. Rather, you may want to stop and think about the power that you are giving the situation, as well as how to overcome it.

General Dream Meaning: Tidal Wave, Tsunami

Overall, dreams of a tsunami or tidal wave indicate that you feel overwhelmed in some area of your life. Since water can be used to symbolize both romantic and monetary affairs, you can look to either area for the underlying cause of this dream. You can use the size of the waves as an indicator of the level of distress you are feeling, as well as the effects a crisis may have on your life. In addition, you may also want to consider how you or others managed to deal with the waves. Even if you dream of being killed in a tsunami, it may indicate relief from your problems, as well as the opportunity for a new beginning.

How Dream Symbol Tidal Wave, Tsunami may Fit in your Life

No matter how out of control various aspects of your life may be, there will always be opportunities to change that. Unfortunately, sometimes those mechanisms of change can be destructive. That said, if the situation is bad enough, the relief that you feel afterward may just be worth it. When you dream of a tidal wave, you can prepare yourself as best as you can for whatever is coming, and then look forward to new days and new beginnings ahead.

A Sample Dream, Tidal Wave, Tsunami Dream Interpretation

Consider a dream in which it is a beautiful sunny day. You are walking along the beach, and notice the tide coming in. For some strange reason, you decide to seek higher ground. As you climb up an embankment, you turn around to look at the water. You notice a huge wall of water headed directly for the shore. Desperately, you begin to climb as fast as you can. As the wall of water approaches, you trip over a surf board. Suddenly, you are no longer afraid, and stand on the board. When the wave finally comes in, you maneuver into it and ride it out. While this proves to be difficult, eventually you reach safety. Looking around, you notice that your co-workers are having a picnic, and have no clue that a tsunami just landed on the beach. When you wake up, you realize that the people you thought were co-workers are actually strangers.

Even though there are no clear indicators at the beginning of the dream, encountering co-workers at the end of the dream indicates you are feeling overwhelmed at work. Since they are all enjoying a picnic, you can also conclude that you may feel like you are doing all of the work, or shouldering burdens that should not be yours. Your initial fear, and then finding the resources to survive the tidal wave indicate that you will successfully navigate out of your problems. This is further indicated when you awaken and realize that you were actually talking to strangers in the dream. You can interpret this to mean that you are not connected with your co-workers, and efforts to regain alignment will bear positive results. Alternatively, you can view this dream as somewhat precognitive in the sense that you will go through a crisis at work, and then meet new people at a different job. Being past the tidal wave itself and joining the picnic indicates that you may wind up being much happier in the new job environment.

I find it amusing that so many people can have the same kind of dreams...
It was sunny, I was with two of my friends on the beach, and suddenly the waves started getting bigger and bigger, and we managed to get far away from it, the waves continued getting bigger and flooding everywhere, we were near a building, I suggested we go as far up as we can, I carried on, they didn't listen but as I turned to look a them they weren't my friends, they were strangers, and as I arrived at the top where a cafe was with strangers some interacting with each other, and not knowing what was going on out there, I just got closer to the balcony and watched the waves flood down the ground level.
And remember thinking "this is a dream! this is a dream! why won't I wake up? this is not a dream!"

I wake up finally.

I had a dream last night, and at first i was on a beach and id seen a rock or something in the sand, so as i went closer and reached out for the rock, the sea came in so fast but it diddnt reach me at this point, but then as i kept going back to get the rock the sea came in closer and closer till the point there was big powerful waves smashing into me then causing some sort of tsunami (the waves wasnt that big) and the whole beach was covered and the streets were flooded. The sea was so powerful it was pulling me back into the sea but i was strong enough to keep swimming to prevent being sucked under and killed. Eventually i managed to swim out of the water and save myself but before this id found a little boy also in the sea next to me being sucked back and under the water, i managed to grab the boy and rescue him aswel.

I have an idea of what it all means but struggle to think of what the boy could mean. Id also like some thoughts from other people to try figure out the meaning of all this.

Thankyou  :) x

I have always had very vivid dreams and sometimes very strange dreams. I can always tell when a dream is "different" and I had never ever dreamed of a Tsunami before until last night. After reading this though it makes a lot more sense.

The dream begins with me at work, which for some reason is in a different field and a bit more futuristic for some reason, but is still the same work I work at when I'm awake. (Maybe that's just my brain adding flavor text ?) Anyways, in this future work there is a reward system in which if three of your coworkers recognize you for amazingly outstanding performace, a light will activate on the boss's panel along with the referal name. I went into the boss's office one day and saw this panel where I had apparently had three lights for a while. Yet I received no raise, promotion, recognition, or anything you were supposed to get.

As everyone is leaving work for the day I notice something HUGE and blue on the horizon. Somehow I instantly know what it is. There are children playing on the street, and people going about their business. They seem oblivious as do my coworkers. I yell at them to get to high ground and even escort a few children to safety myself. The wave puts everything under. The place of safety is the top of a hill with wheat and wild tall grass that is golden with vegetation growing over top as well and a cleared area in the middle to create a small little haven you could go in. Everything was gone, and the survivors know they have to start over... but there is sort of an adventurous pioneer feeling to it.

Real life situation: I am in a workplace where I love my coworkers and my job, but my two bosses can be quite terrible. I know I do excellent work, but never get thanks or rewards and neither do my coworkers. We are frequently yelled at for things that are out of our control.

I am currently putting together a Resume/CV to move to the UK to be with my love! All in all the dream description above seems to be an accurate one, though some of the finer details still have me curious.

Just thought I'd share.  :)

last night i had a dream that shook me up a little. In the dream i felt the earthquake. i was somewhere near the ocean and i knew we were going to have a tsunami. At that point i was talking and walking with someone along the beach shore. then i saw the water going back...and i decided to swim to the mountain (dont know why) after a little bit i noticed i was swimming with my brother and told him we may have better chances if we run to it instead of swimming. We ran along a mountain edge...it was a narrow little path with precipices on each side. We finally got to the top and i climbed a tree. at this point i lost my brother the water was coming. Then somehow i was inside a cabin up high and i closed the windows. I saw the water coming but i was high up. The water didnt enter the room but i saw the waves hitting the wall. What was strangest of all, what that a i was waiting for the water to hit, i held on to y ex-husband. I recently started dating after the divorce and im not sure how to take this. maybe i am not ready to date yet..or maybe this is a sign that my life can be better...shed some light anyone....please!

TsunamiDreamer 2013-07-22 15:42:01
I have dreamt of tsunami's for Aprox.15 years. In my dreams they are always massive with huge walls of crashing water destroying everything I can see. Unfortunately I am always trying to save a relative. Although all the imagery is different, the theme is always the same...save people and don't die. Also the dreams always end in the middle of my struggles....not with me safe or dead. They are long drawn out struggle dreams with no conclusion. I suffer from anxiety so my guess is that these dreams do in fact represent me being overwhelmed....what I don't understand is why there no conclusion for me or the person/persons I'm saving. These dreams are extraordinarily terrifying....and long, I wish they came with an ending one way or another.

last night i dreamt of tsunami..
me and my brother were walking in the streets.
i dont know why im aware that a tsunami will come.. so i asked my brother to run and seek shelter.

we have reach our old house(where i grew up) waiting for the impending disaster.
i saw 2 of my co-worker outside of our house engaging in a fistfight. but i have some hesitation to help them out since im aware that a tsunami will soon come. maybe they are not aware of the incoming tsunami.

i shut the door, and i went to the stairs.
i choose the stair because at that time for me stairs is the most logical place to be safe.
i climbed halfway being adjacent to the flooring of the 2nd floor, and grabbed hold the handrail for tsunami was started to come.

the whole house and the handrails that im grabbed on to almost carried away by the tsunami but before it was carried away the tsunami also started to fade.

and then i woke up.

I've been having several dreams of tsunami's since I was about nine or ten. They range from trying to escape the water on the shore by climbing, trying to get back to shore when I'm in the wave, saving my brother from being smashed by a wave, etc. the worst two only happened a few months ago but it was pretty bad.
The first one was where I was at my house but it was five stories high and all of my close relatives were living in it. They were all having a good time upstairs while I was out on the balcony (I'll mention the house is literally on the beach and its night) and I saw the sea and it was all mutated and there were no waves, it was just calm and the sea level had risen so high that I couldn't see the moon. I ran downstairs to get my little brother and told my family. The tsunami hit the house but we didn't die because the water slowly came in and we later drowned.
The second was when my family and I were sitting on the balcony relaxing when there's and enormous earthquake and all these people are running and screaming from below. We still stay on the balcony but my father tries huddling us all together but we somehow seem to float away. And Then this huge tsunami wave just glides towards us and the last thing I grab is my little brother and then we're crashing through the houss, which breaks, and then I let go of my brother necause im not strong enouGh and then I see my mum and she's trying to get me but then she disappears when a bus flies past in the water (you know what I mean). I die because I'm hit by a building.
I never fail to miss the dying part I guess.

Dream 2013-05-17 18:47:15
I'm sleeping and I get awoken from an earthquake. I lie down next to my bed to protect myself if anything were to fall on me. Then I get and am looking out the balcony doors of my bedroom, and there was a vast, blue ocean, which isn't the norm - despite that I live in a Marina. I see two of my neighbors floating in the water, safe as far as a Tsunami is concerned since they'll feel the swell go by but it's only us on shore that gets hit. These two neighbors live together and are in a relationship, yesterday I was in awe over how they maintain it because literally the night before this dream I broke up with my girlfriend of 2 years and a half years. The swell is coming in fast but I'm a little perplexed by it, since it's only a faint swell and I don't know if it's what I hope it isn't. I instinctively back away from the window, and before I know it the apartment gets ravaged and water flies through the window and I wake up.

Soon Mother to Be Again 2013-04-28 15:19:11
I am currently 7 months pregnant and last night I had a terrifying dream. I had my 10 year old son and my newborn with my mother at an oceanside amusement park. We were riding a trolley type ride that circled the park and gave great views of the beach and boulevard. We have to be strapped in because the ride moves fast. On the first trip around the amusement park I am watching the ocean, and very large waves start coming in. If I would have to guess maybe 50-75 feet, and I mention to other passengers of the ride, that I believe we are going to have a tsunami any minute. Other people start yelling running around and generally freaking out. I stay seated with my children and mother, because I think we will be safer if we are buckled in instead of trying to outrun this large wave. On the second trip around the park I notice this wave has covered the entire sky and I watch as a bright sunny day disappears slowly as the wave covers everything down to the last ray of light. I hold my children close preparing for impact. I remember feeling tremendous fear for my children, not really concerned for myself.Then I suddenly woke up before the water reached us. That is all, but it was very lifelike and this place is real because I have visited there several times before during family vacations. What could this be interpreted as in my current condition?

I also had this dream 20w pregnant. My husband and 10yo step son were in the water and I had my 5yo daughter with me when I saw the wave coming. I watched my husband and step son get swept up while still sitting on a bench not worried that it would reach us. When I realised it was going to hit us I turned on the bench but did not run. I braced for impact and held onto my daughter as tight as I could. We had wave after wave come crash onto us with no pain but I remember having fear for my daughter. I woke up before knowing the ending.

Mommy of two:) 2013-07-09 17:21:34
I had a very similar dream. In my dream I was in a car with my husband, friends and two sons. We were all in a two door honda, somehow... anyways, my new born was in his carseat up front with my husband and I. My five yr old in his seat in the back. I looked to my left and see the tsunami coming right towards us. It was terrifying! I was confused on what to do and screamed to unbuckle my son in the back and give him to me. Then took my newborn out and held them both close to me. I looked at my husband and told him I loved him. As dramatic as all this sounds, and it was... right before the giant wave hit us, my alrm went off. I think my dream came from fears of being responsable for two kids and keeping them safe. Im also concerned all the time with making sure my Five yr old feels loved and not number two to our new baby. Also, my husband and I are getting over a rough patch. This dream really made me realize how much I love my husband and kids. I dont want to take one day for granted!!

I have been having this same dream for around 3 years, I'm getting frustrated!My kids and I are in a block of flats beside where we live, this place is real the beach is real, so my dreams are freaking me out. All the water gets sucked out for miles then comes back in floods the place then gets sucked back out, my kids and I go down to check the car which is wet but working, then as we stand there the water comes back, but stops at our feet, we go back in the flat which is a high block, we watch as the water gets sucked out and comes back, in every dream the water gets closer and reaches the window , but we never get wet,the water has never done any damage or left any. Why do I keep dreaming the exact same dream? It's always me and my kids, and we never get hurt it just goes back to normal,the wave is higher every time and sometimes I'm very calm in these dreams and other times I'm not. I have looked everywhere for info because it's me my kids and car,someone try and enlighten me please, thankyou
