I've always had water dreams. I'm part fish.
Recently I had a dream that I had fallen off the edge of a waterfall
into a gigantic football field sized pool lengthwise, and as tall as it was wide.
I shot into the water and the force of it kept me under and shot me to the back of the pool.
I was under water for a long time, relaxed, and went with it.
Suddenly I began jumping very weightlessly from the bottom up nearly to the surface and back down; over and over. I didn't need air, but maybe wasn't in water anymore and it was just weightlessness, like floating in the middle of a pool (one of my favorite sensations).
To see water in your dream, symbolizes your unconscious and your emotional state of mind. Water is the living essence of the psyche and the flow of life energy. It is also symbolic of spirituality, knowledge, healing and refreshment. To see calm, clear water in your dream, means that you are in tune with your spirituality. It denotes serenity, peace of mind, and rejuvenation.
To see a waterfall in your dream, is symbolic of letting go. You are releasing all those pent up emotions and negative feelings. Alternatively, the dream represents your goals and desires. In particular, if the waterfall is clear, then it represents revitalization, regeneration and renewal.
To dream that you are at the bottom of the waterfall, suggests that you are feeling emotionally overwhelmed.
To dream that you are jumping, indicates that you need to take a risk and go for it. You will overcome your obstacles and find progress toward your goals. Consider the metaphors "jumping for joy" to mean thrill and excitement or "jumping the gun" to mean impatience or impulsiveness. The way you feel in the dream will provide additional significance and meaning to your dream.
So there you have it... seems like a peaceful dream (though the waterfall might
be saying a little something about my overwhelmed feelings with my nursing program
and the general wife/momming duties that I carry). All said and done, I wish
I were floating weightlessly in the middle of a deep pool right now!!!
Instead, I shall study.
Sweet dreams tonight- and happy Wednesday
