To better understand the messages your dreams about water are trying to send, learn about the spiritual and sacred meanings for The Element of Water.
Dreams about water are incredibly meaningful and potentially very powerful psychic dreams. Dreaming about water can be contain the following symbolic meanings:
Changing tides: Among the Teutonic people, each tide carried different meanings that may apply to your dream. The tide occurring just before sunup is one of introspection, while the one at dawn bears fertile waves. Noon tides speak of tenacity, dusk tides bring transformation, the night tide edifies, and the one occurring at midnight heals.
An ocean: The earth’s womb and beginnings of all humankind. Also representative of the vast subconscious, superconscious, or Jungian Collective Unconscious (see Abyss).
Among Native Americans, water appearing in dreams indicates your spiritual state. For example, if the water is flowing smoothly, your spirit is calm and moving in a natural direction.
Moving water dreams: The seen and unseen ebb and flow of all energies.
Baptism dreams: New life, forgiveness toward yourself, and renewed purity of thought and actions (see Baby).
Bathing: Getting rid of your figurative “dirt,” like old habits, guilt, anger, and even sexual repression (e.g., feeling “dirty”).
Hot water dreams: Trouble’s afoot, so look for the wellhead (see Temperature).
Drowning in water dreams: Overwhelming circumstances, problems, or emotions that threaten to defeat your efforts or sense of individuality. Esoterically, this may also reflect a memory from a past life experience (see Choking, Suffocation).
Floating upon water dreams: Dependence on your feminine nature or a mother figure. Alternatively, skimming the surface of spiritual potentialities without ever really diving in and experiencing that aspect of self.
Stagnant water dreams: Something, often a situation, that is unhealthy for you to the point where it causes a standstill in personal growth and in your quest for wholeness.
Shallow water represents a similarly frivolous personality that avoids delving into any aspect of life too deeply. Alternatively, this can represent a fear of confronting the depths of your own subconscious.
Tidal waves dreams: Powerful emotions or instincts that you have let build up to a critical mass. This dream reveals the need to express those things before they come crashing over the floodgates.
Surfing on water dreams: Taking control of, and accepting the power in, the feminine aspects of self and the Universe. Also maintaining a rather haphazard balance between the intuitive nature (the water) and the conscious self (the surfer).
A geyser: A sudden, unanticipated outpouring of creativity, goodness, inspiration, spiritual gifts, or whatever.
Wearing a life preserver in the water represents getting a second chance at something. Grab it before it gets away!
Ripples appearing on the water’s surface indicate the waves of energy we send out without even knowing it, similar to a web. This will eventually touch everything and everyone because you are part of the network of life.
Lakes dreams: As the abode of several magical creatures, including the Lady of the Lake and water nymphs, dream lakes reflect the search for the wonders that lie just beyond the surface of reality. What does the surface of the lake cover? Are you fishing here, thereby trying to catch a little magic?
(see Ammunition, Armor, Axe, Knife, Fighting, Sword, Whip)
Taking up a weapon reveals hostility or fear that you may be repressing during waking hours. Turn to look upon the object of your actions. Sometimes just facing your true feeling is enough to begin the healing process.
Guns are violent, but impersonal. These reveal a source of anger or anxiety that you would prefer to keep at arm’s length. How healthy this distance is for you, however, is questionable, or your dreams would not reveal it.
A catapult indicates the ability to circumnavigate an obstacle by ingenious thought and assertive action.
Cannons can fire over a large distance, meaning the perceived threat is not nearby. Additionally, they may symbolize things that you value very little (e.g., something best used as “cannon fodder”). As an omen, cannons portend a struggle that engages powerful forces.
Maces represent blunt realities that are so cold and firm as to nearly knock you off your feet with their realization.
Nuclear devices represent tremendous buildup of frustration to the point that it leaks into your life as a futile attitude that poisons everything.
(see Knots, Rope, Spider, Spinning)
In the immortal words of Shakespeare, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave.” This dream may represent the web of deception or some other trap of which you need to be aware.
The web of life that interconnects all things, from the smallest grain of sand to the stars. In this case, your subconscious is trying to remind you of your importance in this scheme, and how your life touches everything directly or indirectly.
Attachments and associations. Nets participated in ancient Russian wedding ceremonies to indicate the unity of the couple and ensure fertility (“a teeming catch”).
Being caught in a net can be an alternative type of cage dream, with slightly looser constraints indicated (rope is easier to get out of than steel).

Marrying yourself figuratively to an ideal, situation, or group. The caution here is to remember that such commitments, if healthy, do not require the loss of individuality.

Trying looking at your current circumstances differently for a moment, and see if you can’t make the most of them.
Situational: Have you been focused on your own weight loss or gain lately?
Burdens that you are carrying.
Anything you perceive as hindering your movement or growth. What exactly is weighing you down?
