Detailed dream interpretation

Dreaming of a lake is associated with holding back emotions and feelings. The question you should ask yourself is what feelings you should preserve more. Spiritually speaking, a lake symbolizes the collective unconscious with strong references to the personal unconscious. Dreaming of a calm lake portends quite times ahead.

A big lake with pure color waters is the sign of a good future and happy acquaintances, as well as some peace and quiet ahead. If the water is agitated, this portends disturbances ahead. Dreaming of yourself fishing in a lake it means you do not take advantage of opportunities, but also that you might fall in love. Swimming in a lake suggests that someone is observing you, and that you might make new friends. Seeing yourself on the shore of a lake it means you are content and happy.

A lake is an important dream to interpret because this relates to emotional stability. The dream is often associated with other factors that need to be interpreted separately. The lake generally implies there is a possibility that you have emotions you wish to discover. A lake can also be associated with a variety of different circumstances and images within your dream, so it is important to interpret this separately.

This dream could also mean you are likely to be aware of problems in the future, it highlights that it is important to subconsciously push things into various positive directions. If the water in the lake is agitated, it means life is moving too quickly for you. If you can see the lake is huge, this symbolizes that great changes are on the horizon. If the lake is deep in nature, it means that you have a fear of deep emotional situations. Lakes in dreams generally signify an emotion and energy in which you have taken to yourself. A small lake represents how you live your life. This dream will be dependent upon your attitude to whether see life as a large lake.
