Crossing dream meaning

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

In the waking world, you cross over to get to somewhere you need to be.

In the spiritual world, it works similarly—you cross over to get to the afterlife or to receive a better understanding of this life. A dream of crossing an object, whether it is a road, a bridge, or a river, can show the kinds of things you wish to cross over to in the waking world. If you dream of crossing something, you will have to look at the kind of thing you crossed, what happened on the way, and what may have been waiting on the other side. Crossing a road is considerably more risky than crossing, say, a bridge over a river, so this kind of dream shows the dangers of your ambitions. Whether you made it across or not is a determining factor, and whether the view on the other side was worth it or not.

Detailed dream interpretation:

If you dreamed about crossing a road, your dream is showing you something about your ambitions or your goals for the far-off future. Crossing a road in the real world can be difficult and dangerous, as can crossing a road in your dream. This shows that the goals you have set for yourself require a lot of work and effort. If you dreamed about crossing a river, it was likely more spiritual than crossing a road. These dreams may have to do with your feelings about the afterlife, or you may have simply been thinking about death lately. A dream about crossing a river also symbolizes emotional goals, like where you want to be in your relationship in the near future. If you did not complete the journey across something in your dream, it shows that you are extremely fearful of the path that lies ahead of you in the waking world. You are not sure whether or not you will ever achieve your goals in the real world, but you must learn to trust yourself. You will never know if you do not try.

If you crossed with someone you love, or if you crossed to meet someone you love on the other side in your dream, it shows that you envision a future with this person always there. If this dream involved a river, you are planning to love this person until the day you die. It is also important to look at what was waiting on the other side. If you crossed into a bright, sunny, beautiful day it is a positive sign. If you crossed into something dark and ominous, or if something you feared was waiting on the other side, it is a negative sign of the impossibility of the goals you have set for yourself. If you crossed using a vehicle or something automatic rather than by walking, it may show that you are not being completely thorough in your goals and ambitions. Success requires small steps first in order to achieve your final goals. You cannot skip any steps in accomplishing something big.

What does it mean to cross water in a dream?

If you crossed water in your dream state, it foreshadows a fundamental change in your attitude. It also means you’re letting go your fears, sorrow, and regrets. If the water you crossed was muddy or blurry, it means you will succeed to overcome a bad period of life and enter a better phrase. If the water was clear and shiny, it means you’re walking the right path in life.

Meet new friends and feel free to trust people again. Not everyone’s here to betray you. If someone fails your trust, you don’t lose anything, except the wrong person. To cross water in a dream also reveals a future transformation. It’s possible you experience a spiritual moment and connect with your inner self. You will finally find your inner peace because most of the time we are searching and for something that we can never find, but without setting goals you will never know what to find.

In your dream, you may have:

Successfully crossed a river, bridge, or road. Turned back before crossing something, or stopped completely before finishing your journey. Crossed over into something beautiful or purposeful. Crossed over into something dark or scary. Crossed by walking. Crossed by artificial means other than by walking (such as a boat, car, or moving platform). Crossed over with someone else. Crossed on a bridge that was old and rickety. Crossed something other than a road or a body of water. Crossed either slowly or quickly.

Positive changes are afoot if:

  • You completed the crossing.

  • There was something beautiful on the other side or something relevant to your own interests.
