Detailed dream meaning

When you dream about a rowboat the message is that you need to allow your strength and determination to guide you at this time. Using a rowboat sounds like fun to some people but then they get the paddles out and try to make the boat go and are surprised at how tiring rowing is and how much skill that it can take to get the boat to go anywhere. Rowboats are signs of learning, being patient, and sometimes a symbol to let things be and to take their own course.

When you are paddling a rowboat to cross a water body, consider how difficult it is for you and your attitude about the job at hand. Are you motivated or are you lazy? Do you know what you are doing? Do you feel balanced on the water or are you barely making it by? All of these things will come into play about what the dream truly means for you.

Being saved or escaping by rowboat or having to paddle is a sign of digging yourself out of trouble. A rowboat may be sturdy but it is not the ideal vehicle for salvation. This is a sign that the trouble you have gotten yourself into or that is coming your way is going to take time to get out of. Don’t try to go for quick fixes right now because they are going to cause problems. Think about standing up suddenly or jumping around on a rowboat – you would tip into the water. In your waking life now is the time to have patience and to allow whatever is happening to take its course. There is little that you can do other than maintain your own dignity and focus on your own security. Do not give into drama, risk, or rumors at this time. You are going to make it out alright if you do not overreact.

Rowing together or with a group of people is a sign of a team effort and depending on who is with you in the dream indicates comradeship or working together.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Socializing or working together.
  • Being a part of a team.
  • Needing to take things slow and steady.
  • Not over reacting.
