Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

The dream meaning of a child drowning is connected to your own inner child and I am sorry you had such a terrifying dream.

In some cases, people can see their own children drowning, such as your son or daughter. Alternatively, it is an unfamiliar child. There is much emotion around this dream and, in essence, it indicates our own fear and anxieties about caring for either someone close to us, our children or our "inner" child. Such a dream can often leave us feeling quite disturbed upon waking. I kept dreaming that my child was drowning in a swimming pool and I could not find her under the water. Water illustrates emotions and the act of drowning indicates you are feeling as if you are losing something. In such a dream, the details need to be considered and also, of course, the body of water that was featured in your dream. If your child was drowning in a river it can signify that you are looking for help from others, to dream that your son or daughter is drowning in the ocean can imply that your emotions are out of control.

Let us take a moment to review the statistics for rescuing drowning in order to get some clarity. For example, in Australia, there are around 9000 rescues each year without any loss of life. Compare this to Turkey where there were around 1500 rescues. Interestingly, in 2009 out of all these rescues, 90% of people survived in Australia, compared to only 23% in Turkey. This is probably due to the fact the equipment in Australia is much more available. If you are living in a country that has beaches and is water friendly then it is not uncommon to dream your child drowns. Especially if you have your own swimming pool. If you find yourself drowning yourself when you are trying to save your child then this can be an equally disturbing dream. It could indicate that you feel that you need to rescue the situation in life.

What is quite interesting in dreams where a child is drowning in an artificial body of water, such as the swimming pool can indicate that certain subconscious forces which are driving you at the moment. Often, I see these types of dreams after a difficult or emotional period in someone's life. As I have already mentioned water is a symbolism in our dreams for own expressions and emotions. If it is our own child is featured in the dream it can be quite a shock, especially in the morning. If you could see your child slipping beneath the surface of water unnoticed or submerged it can often represent the feeling that you are drowning in either work or difficult emotions. To see any type of rescue equipment, such as a float or alternatively a life jacket then this can indicate that you have sufficient resources in order to overcome your battles and bring yourself out of this emotional turmoil. I mention emotional turmoil because of the nature of the dream. To dream of a throw line with its flotation can indicate that somebody is going to rescue you from a difficult situation. Here I have broken down this dream into question and answer format.
