what does a dream mean that has a recurring theme of water and boats?
meaning of dream
As mentioned in all relevant dream symbols, bodies of water represent your unconscious, your emotions and your accumulated soul experiences. Depending on the content of the dream, several different interpretations could be made. The boat in your dream could represent you and the manner you navigate through your emotions. It could symbolize the voyage of your life, an adventure and exploration of your unconscious, or a connection to the people in your dream by pointing out something that all of you have in common ("in the same boat"). When interpreting this dream, consider the kind of voyage and the type of boat. Superstition-based dream interpretation books say that if the voyage is calm, you should go forward with your plans. However, if it is a very stormy voyage, get ready for an emotional upset (or challenge).
".But O the ship, the immortal ship! O ship aboard the ship! Ship of the body, ship of the soul, voyaging, voyaging, voyaging. " -- Walt Whitman"
Dreams are really personal experiences that are preserved in the mind of a person. Basically in the unconscious part of the mind. Some main events are easily noticeable and clear while there may be other important small things that play a role in a dream such as the environment, expression of others, and feelings after the dream. Which can create the true meaning of a dream. The reason for why certain dreams come up, I really don't know.
I really think only the dreamer can fully understand it or perhaps just partially. With a deep understanding of one's self, the meaning of a dream becomes much more clear.
My suggestion is to type or write your thoughts on the computer/journal with out second thoughts(free writing) and eventually try to analyze it.
Ask yourself questions such as: How was I feeling with that person during the dream?
How did I feel in the situation? Secure, puzzled, intimidated, a little frightened?
Am I trying to avoid something in the dream?
Was this an emotional dream?
Was this a physical dream?
What were my thoughts of the boat during the dream?(or water)
Add emotional detail to your interpretation. What ever it it that you have in mind just write it down. Eventually you will become rather well in understanding why you have certain dreams.
Example: Happy water dreams meaning?
it was a happy dream. In the first section, although i was partly aware of acting in a film, I was playing a mermaid (i had a tail) which i could really swim with, I felt comfortable and confident in the water and my role was to get the attention of a rich sailor who then took me to shore. On the shore there were many other mermaids (my friends in real life) and we were laughing an joking.
In the next section relating to water I was coaching a young actress how to swim in a pool with 2 other experienced coaches. There was a sense we'd been trying for a long time and when she finally achieved it we all rejoiced and i burst into celebratory tears, then a man i am in love with in reality came and commended our efforts.
The last part involving water, my family and I were sitting at a poolside table with many other families at respective tables, at what felt like a presentation or award ceremony. It was a beautiful sunny day and it hadn't begun, I was watching said man I love look at a display of pictures of marilyn monroe and there was conversation to the effect she 'wasn't naturally pretty'. My grandad said I should get his attention so he and my mum lifted my legs up into a handstand, but my skirt was falling down and i kept tugging it back up. I was laughing, this was all fun not stressful...and I almost fell head over heels into the pool but I recovered.

I have dreams that are very detailed - the entire dream fits together as if an author had been planning it for years.. but many times my dreams have water in them. Whether the water is calm, clear, rough, dirty - if it's an ocean, a lake, or a bathtub, it doesn't matter.. but the weird thing is that whenever I go under any kind of water, I can still breathe. I'm breathing slowly and shallow so it isn't comfortable and I still need to get to the surface to get enough air, but I can still run out of breath under the water and take in enough oxygen to be okay. My dreams are never about the fact that I can breathe underwater.. it's just a little something that happens but I notice it a lot. What could that mean?

I am going to share a dream I had the other night. It all started when I was walking past this house. I heard a cat meow and I decided to go see that cat. I got to the porch which had a board covering up the bottom of stairs(it like had a hole in it or something) when I got closer I can see the cats heard stuck inside the porch where it was boarded up. So I knew for a fact that it was animal abuse. So I start to freak out. I called 911 and the animal control unit. This whole time the poor cat was crying in pain. The animal control came and rounded up saving the cat. But the cat wanted nothing to do with anyone. I tried to go pet it but it was hissing and getting its claws out. So I was heated up with rage that I grabbed a cops gun and was trying to find a way In the cat abusers house everyone was trying to calm me down and saying I know ur po but it's not worth hurting the man or possibly killing him. I was like I DONT CARE HE WANTS TO ABUSE THIS CAT. I WILL DO MORE THAN ABUSE HIM. I woke up with tears coming down my eyes:( horrible dream. why did i have this dream :(
Example: What does this dream mean?
I dreamed I was in Chicago and flying a helicopter across lake Michigan to the other side in my army uniform. The lake was calm and along the way it seemed like the helicopter would go down but I took control of it and kept flying. When I reached the other side I noticed the land was dry not completely but bare for the most part like Afghanistan. I decided to leave as I lifted off I saw tornadoes in the distance quickly approaching. I maneuvered the helicopter and avoided them. I crossed the lake again, which was still calm. I flew next to a bridge and passed it and landed back in Chicago. By this time it was dark in the city.
Just some background I am originally from Chicago. My bf is also in the military and deployed not long ago. I have been missing him terribly and have been working on taking care of his affairs as well as mine. I am also currently in school and have been working hard in class as well. The dream just seemed somewhat disturbing.
