Dreams about the ocean : As places of limitlessness oceans represent the unconscious, unfathomable emotional depth, and intuition so strong it overpowers all rational thought. That ocean tides are controlled by the moon, another powerful symbol of the unconscious, only deepens the connection between the sea and what lies beneath the conscious mind. The ocean side is the place where the infinite touches the finite. It is a meeting place where the rolling waves deliver the sea’s gifts to the sand. As such it symbolizes a melding of the unconscious and conscious – a time of spiritual growth when the psyche integrates its dual nature thereby leading to consciousness expansion and self-actualization. The state of the seas is also important to interpreting the sea as a dream symbol. Turbulence indicates emotional upset or a disquieting surge in the unconscious. Quiet rhythmically, moving seas symbolize harmony between the intellect and the intuition, a comfort with the self and the emotions, and feelings of being perfectly tuned to the beat of the universe. Since water is one of the most powerful forces on earth, careful attention should be paid to dreams about water .Sources: Sacred Water: The Spiritual Source of Life by Nathaniel AltmaGod’s; Answer by Bishop Dan Edwards; Portable Jung by C.

Water is also the proof of the spiritual mood. It’s your subconscious I – the water of life, the source of vitality.
Dreaming of Lily pads: Since lily pads float on the surface of the pond, they may show you that you desire an emotional break. Lilies are often associated with mourning. Water lilies may indicate feelings of sorrow and grief.
Dreaming about ponds: Ponds are often associated with tranquility, quiet time for yourself, the need to sit quietly with oneself and reflect and being emotionally calm in general.
Although pools can relate to containing emotion since there is no outlet, they are natural bodies of water and often represent the quiet tucked away emotions and unconscious self that has been present all along but not yet fully explored.
Ponds typically contain a lot of life. It may be beneficial to explore what is contained in the pond. Are these plants or animals natural to the pond? Are these plants or animals thriving or dying? The qualities of the life surrounding the pond may give you further insight into your current emotional state.
A tap: often represents the dreamer’s ability to control the expression of his/her feelings. If you dreamed of a faucet- do you find you are able to switch on and off your emotions easily? Dreaming of a faucet you cannot control could mean you are attempting to over-control your emotions, which just is not natural, and are feeling overwhelmed. Your feelings cannot be completely contained and will gush through whatever barriers you have put up.
A leaky faucet: could relate to an indicator that something within you needs some maintenance or attention. It could mean your regulation of your emotions is not in is best shape and you need to review where you are putting your energy.

Dreaming of watching rain hit a window: Can indicate that spiritual ideas or insights are entering your consciousness.
Rain dreams: Rain can be negative as well as positive. Although it can be a symbol of depression, sadness, and shedding tears; it can also relate to grace from God (or a higher power) and forgiveness. If the dreamer gets wet, it could be a symbol of cleansing and becoming more in touch with a greater purpose and emotions/spiritual thoughts that were always there waiting to be discovered or rediscovered.
Lakes are similar to ponds in that they are natural: (usually) can be a place of peace of mind but can also tell the dreamer they do not have an outlet to their emotions. Lakes are larger than ponds and tend not to carry a meaning of solitude the way a pond does.
A bridge over a stream: May mean you are making an emotional transition. Are you attempting to avoid your feelings or are you overcoming an emotional issue?
Streams in dreams: Can represent the flow of emotions for many dreamers. Streams can also represent new and inspiring thoughts or ideas. The nature of streams may indicate to a dreamer that thoughts are spontaneous, free flowing, and not over-thought. Since streams are smaller than most bodies of water, they give a gentle, slow feel to the dream. In most dreams, the stream ends up relating to a little hint or a spark of something significant that can grow and develop over time for the dreamer.Pin It
Floods in dreams: can be damaging and devastating. In dreams, they tend to relate to emotional pain, devastation and feelings of overwhelm. Floods can have many different characteristics within a dream. It is important to explore if this was a biblical-type flood (destroying your world and starting over) or a slow flood or a threat to a flood. Threats to devastation that do not actually materialize in the dream relate to excess worry, fears and negative thinking. This aspect of a dream may be most helpful to the dreamer because what needs to be addressed (negative thinking patterns) is in the dreamer’s control. This inner dynamic and struggle between over controlling and being controlled by the emotions is not a healthy one. Emotional well-being is achieved when we find an emotional balance in which we regulate emotions steadily instead of blocking them or being overtaken by them. Floods tend to tell us we lack harmony between our mind, emotions, body, and spirit.
Sewage in dream: This often represented in the dreamer’s opinion the lowest of the low emotions. Sewage can relate to the emotions that have been discarded and disowned because the dreamer perceived them as vile and shameful. Sewage can also relate to the dreamer having low self-esteem and not valuing their life, their emotions and/or their spirit.
Sewage can show the dreamer that unattended and unexpressed emotions are “eating” away at them and becoming toxic.
Dreaming of a wave threatening a city: May relate to something that is threatening your own world.
Waves and Tsunamis: As with most symbols, waves can have both negative and positive meanings.
Riding a wave is a positive symbol of effectively managing emotions and difficult challenges in life. This often represents the dreamer’s ability to go with the flow at times and act decisively and deliberately to work with circumstances at hand. This type of flexibility allows the dreamer to surpass obstacles and achieve goals.
Creating a wave demonstrates the dreamer’s ability to control emotions, thoughts, and behavior and use creativity and their own personal power/choices to shape the circumstances around them.
Tidal waves and tsunamis tend to relate to emotions that are sweeping away and threatening the dreamer. These emotions may relate to a real situation that is troubling and threatening the individual (financial troubles for example) or the dreamer’s perception of their place in life and negative anticipation of future events. When emotions and past issues are repressed and avoided, they push back until they are acknowledged by the dreamer. Problems often grow and become overwhelming when ignored for too long. Emotions represented within floods and waves are often layered. The wave may have begun with negative and dark emotions that were compounded with the dreamer’s feelings about their feelings and the expression of these feelings. These type of dreams may indicate to the dreamer a need to address the anxiety and fears associated with addressing the deeper emotions that have been avoided over time.
Aquifers in dreams: Since aquifers are an underground layer of water, they often relate to the unconscious and unconscious emotions. Although not visible, these unconscious aspects of self are present and may influence the emotional terrain of the dreamer. Dreaming of aquifers can be a very positive symbol. Since they are often the source of water levels within other bodies of water, the dreamer may be exploring the core issue or underlying cause of emotional distress.
Dams in dreams: Dams are a rather direct symbol indicating the dreamer is repressing emotions that need to be expressed. This is not natural and cannot be sustained. If this continues over time, the dam eventually will become a bursting dam in which the repression, avoidance, and compartmentalizing of emotions is not an effective way to manage emotions. This method of emotional regulation often backfires for the dreamer.
Hose or sprinkler: Hoses and sprinklers can relate to how the dreamer is directing emotion. It is appropriate or displaced? Both tend to relate to healing and achieving enlightenment through the shedding of emotions and past pain.
Tears in dreams: Tears in general relate to positive and healthy expression of emotion that has allowed the dreamer to grow from a psychological and spiritual standpoint. Depending upon the context, tears can also indicate pain, compassion and healing.The symbol of a teardrop may relate to the wisdom the dreamer has gained through a tough and emotionally-challenging experience.
Sweat in dreams: Sweat can relate to the need for hard work in order to achieve one’s goals. It can also indicate to the dreamer the need to cool down. Sweat may relate to specific emotions such as anxiety, nervousness, and frantic worry.
WATER AND RELIGION
Water is significant to many religions. The dreamer’s beliefs and exposures to different religious practices may impact the dreamer’s unique personal symbolism of water. Water is often used for cleansing and purification- both physically and spiritually. Water washes away impurities and can make something look brand new. Water is a primary building block of life. Without water, there is no life. Its significance to humans and the earth is often found in religious text. Water has the power to destroy. Many cultures share flood stories and lessons. Water is a force that is respected for both its power to destroy and create.
