Example: What is the meaning of my dream?
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.
Hi all! I need help with what I dreamed of two nights ago and last night.
Two nights ago, I dreamed I was surrounded by many green snakes, some white, and one or two red snakes. They weren't trying to hurt me but the one I focused on most was the red one. I didn't feel scared either. Like they were just there.
The last night. I dreamed that this guy I talk to cut up a fish in and gave me one or two slices. The we ended up in boat, him and I, and I think I might have been the one driving. Anyway, we were in the ocean/big lake, the water was a little bit rocky but not too bad. It wasn't clear, but it wasn't dirty, like ocean water. He wanted to go to the seafood restaurant that was on the water, but I looked at the building, and for some reason, I didn't want to go there. Then he jumped out of the boat and I kept going but I didn't know where I was going.
Weird. Thank you guys!
I just had a dream I was in my art classroom at school (I think i am doing reasonably well in it at the moment?). Why did I dream the whole classroom was tilting down at one end and high at the other, vice versa? There was one moment it tipped so fast I stumbled. Can anybody dare to translate? lol.
Im thinkn maybe it means something bad is goin to happen to me but i will get thru it...but i cud b completely wrong..anyone out there know anything about dreams and meanings?
Hi, im 15 years old and i have a boyfriend that im deeply in love with. We've been together for 5 months but have been talking to him for longer than that. I dream in sections and scenes. So my dreams are never one fluid story. Anyways, my dream...This dream felt SO real. So in my dream we were in a parking lot. We just came back from the beach and my dad drove us there. But he was no where to be found so decided to drive the car ourselves. My bf didn't know how to do stick shift, so when the car started, it went in reverse somehow and we started driving backwards really fast. We didn't know how to control it. All of a sudden the car crashed into something and we started to fall. Then the car suddenly became a small little boat. And we landed in water. In the open sea. My bf was unconcious and i remember feeling so scared. The feelings and emtions felt so real. In my dream, i put him on top of the boat while i hung on to it with one arm and used my legs and free arm to swim. I didn't know where i was going... We were alone, but soon enough i saw something weird in the distance. As i came closer it was just stacks and stacks of seaweed floating on top of the water like little trails or something. You were able to walk on it. And there was a bunch of people there too. But in my dream i knew they couldn't help me. I had to help myself and do this my way. There was a seaweed train that floated on top of the water and was going somewhere. I wanted to get on that train. (I don't know why everything was made of seaweed). So with my bf in one arm, i grabbed on to something on the train, and it flung me forward because it was moving so fast. Then i ended up on some huge island that was made of rocks. On this island, there was a lot of women working. They completely ignored me and was rather harsh. The only to civilization is if u stacked enough seaweed to reach the top of the mountain. So when i tried to stack one it just all fell apart. Then i wanted clean clothes so i asked if i can borrow something, they said yea pick something. I went in the little closet thing and there was just a whole bunch of clothes on hangers. The last part of my dream was looking through all the designs of the clothes. But i also remember a scene in my dream. I dont remember where it was supposed to be. But i remember hugging my bf and telling him i saved your life, and stroking his hair. So yea, i just woke up from my dream now. i have NO idea what this means...
i had a dream that i dived into this giant black lake from on top of this canyon like 300 feet down and then i landed in the water and my head hurt and i was like getting all delusional and dizzy and i was like going unconscious or something and then i saw some guy like a mile away that looked like a lifeguard and yelled at me to get in the boat, and there was a paddle boat thing in the water, like one of those little boats that are for recreation and have pedals and two seats and you kind of make it move by pushing the pedals like a bike. anyways then i climbed on it and i dont remember what else, oh ye and there was also a giant diving board in the lake that iw as planning on climbing up and divingdown again but i didnt cause i was hurt so i dont know what this dream means
Example: Titanic dream meaning?
Well, i was on the Titanic with my cousin when all of a sudden, the boat starts to sink. i start to get really scared. and for some reason, i have a life boat kinda thing in my hand made out of newspaper. i blow it up and i look to my right and there is concrete. we all want to get to the land, but we can't for some reason. it ended with us waiting to get saved. i have a feeling that it had to do with my parents fighting that night. my mom was crying and my dad was being stubborn. i went to bed crying. do you think that might be it? anyone know what the titanic sinking symbolizes? thanks! :D
Recently i had a dream that i was sailing a boat. Someone i liked was behind me, helping me with the ores. He moved them one way then i got other ores and moved them in the other direction. Becaust of this the boas started going left to sink. When i was in the water the boy was holding me around my waist. Then i kissed his cheek to say thanks.
If this helps you work anything out, this is about me: i am 16, th last year of secondary school. A am goin to move to a collage far awa from home. The boy has recently gone out with another girl, it made me upset, now she dumped him.
