Detailed dream interpretation...
In a nutshell, any dream that signifies water is an ancient and universal symbol of your spiritual connection, and a signal of what is likely to come in the future. The action of swimming in a dream shows that you are trying to overcome problems in an effective way. Additionally, this dream signifies the potential of a successful life. If you are on the top of the water just drifting and not fighting or swimming against the current, then it shows that you need to be in a fluid situation.
If the water supported you in any way, for example, if you were paddling rather than swimming, then things will begin to improve over the next few months. If you experienced a negative event, such as if you were swimming against the current, then you may be feeling worried about the future, and this dream is a symbol of a cleansing period that is required in your life in order to weave out any unsatisfactory problems.
If you see yourself swimming in the sea that is murky, it means you need to take care of yourself to prevent a minor illness.
To dream of swimming in the sea that is peaceful means that things are going to be calm in the future. If the swimming pool was not clean, then things are going to be slightly taxing in the future. If in your dream you see yourself swimming strokes (breaststroke, front crawl, etc.), this represents very positive times ahead.
If the swimming pool has any problems, such as contamination or bad conditions, then this dream refers to a difficult problem in the near future. To dream of swimming among rubbish or strange objects suggests that you are feeling annoyed about a friend, and it is time for you to get yourself back on track and take into account your possessions.
To swim with animals, such as dolphins or whales, means that times are changing. To find yourself swimming against the tide means that people are going to come to you looking for advice.
