Water can play a significant role in our dreams and overall, I believe that water is positive if the water is sparkling, clear and still. The dream is however somewhat negative if the water is murky or choppy. I have covered all the meanings of water in dreams below.

The dream about water can symbolize our own internal feelings and how we emotionally respond to life.

There is much material about water online and written in ancient books and it is impossible to take on board everything that you encounter in a dream. Many of us gravitate to believing that the water is connected to our emotions, which I concur. But, the details and the type of water featured in the dream is equally important.

Is seeing water in a dream is good or bad?

Water in dreams can have both positive and negative interpretation depending on the details of the dream. As one of the four elements of life, water is an important symbol in dreams and just like any other symbol can denote good and bad situations, feelings, issues, and situations. As I have mentioned in the opening paragraph it is of my opinion the water if clear represents peace and contentment. If murky then difficulties are likely to happen. I am sure you know that our bodies are mostly made up with water, and therefore this wonderful element gives us life. There are five Greek elements in the spiritual realm which are: fire, air, water and finally earth. The element of water is connected to peace, happiness, healing and clearing our own thoughts. This is further associated with the western occult and water holds the meaning of purity, fertility and also the circulation of life. If we turn to many traditions and the symbolism of water it can indicate the flow of life. It’s been reported that water is an extremely common symbolism which is normally connected to our emotions.

What does it mean to dream about water?

Water can appear in many different ways in our dream. For example, the ocean, a freshwater lake, the tap, rain or even a storm. Water challenges us in regard to the dream interpretation. What I will say is it is connected to our own emotions. Heavy rain falling down on you in a dream can indicate that you are feeling a sense of being calm. Water can display itself as being a beautiful element, powerful, calm and still. If the water was however uncontrollable then this denotes (in ancient dream dictionaries) a sign of difficulties, especially in controlling emotions. If you see white water rafting, long deep rivers, choppy sea water, raging waterfalls that are uncontrollable in this type of water invokes a sense of danger in regard to your emotions. To dream about water represents our deepest emotions, denotes our emotional state and reflects how we are feeling at the very moment. The dream interpretation depends on the details you notice in your dream. The water dream might warn you of turbulent times ahead. If you notice a river valley tumbling its way down to the sea then this can indicate a possible feeling of being out of control of your emotions. If the skyline indicates a forthcoming shower of rain then this implies that something is coming emotionally into your life shortly. To walk along a path which follows the river indicates your psyche is connected to mother nature. A rainy day in a dream can indicate you may come into contact with an aspect of someone’s characters which may result in many moods. A river where the water manifests as clear and pure is a reflection of the joys of life. If murky, then the river in this instance indicates that someone is going to turn to you for advice. The sea carries a whole new meaning as we also have the power of the waves created by the moon. The moon represents dishonesty spiritually. Generally, waves in dreams are powerful indications that emotions are out of control. You may find a vast amount of changes when you dream about large waves.

What does it signify to dream about dirty water?

To see dirty water in your dream signifies negative emotions you need to release. There will be a focus to set yourself free from negative energy. Many people have contacted me about this dream and it is important to keep your distance from people who cause nothing but negativity in waking life. Water is historically connected to healing and protection and the awareness of our spiritual responsibilities often arise after having this dream. To see murky seawater in a dream reflects your hidden feelings about your life.

If you are annoyed with your friends, family or lover then the “dirty water” dream often rears its head.

In regard to dream lore, to dream about deep water implies you need to pay extra attention to what you say and do in the future.

Being lost in deep water in a dream can indicate your emotions at the moment.

If the water was clear then it can indicate people around you will be transparent and easy to read. This dream also reflects the loneliness and personal growth. It can signify that you will find solitude amusing because when you’re alone – you have time to analyze yourself, your words, thoughts, actions, past actions, and future plans. I like to think that this dream is much like the hermit in the tarot deck. It is associated with focusing more on yourself and finding the light.

Try not to let your emotions control your mind. Thinking about how you react to words and actions over the coming months will be important.

And remember – you can never stop the waves, but you can always learn how to surf.

What does it symbolize to dream about a waterfall?

The waterfall could be tumbling in a dream and this leads to the question of if a waterfall is a good or bad omen. There is no real answer here. The roar of waterfalls in a dream indicates emotions will run high, especially if the terrain was increasingly uneven. In some cases, users have had this dream when they are about to encounter a new relationship that may end up being good or bad. Clambering over large rocky boulders next to the waterfall in dream can imply serious emotions of others. The waterfall in a dream is a symbol of business success, possible profits but also stressful periods in life. There is no dispute that you need to work hard to get what you want out of life, but it will all pay off in the end.

Can the symbols in the day affect my dream of water?

The answer is yes. It can also indicate a situation that you have encountered during the day. A traditional example is that you’re in the grocery store and you see a mother yelling at her three-year-old child and the child is crying. Your heart just goes out to the little girl and maybe also to mother - the whole sadness of the situation enters your mind and you feel completely helpless because you don’t see that there is anything you can do. This is emotional connections that you have in daily life that you might have closed your heart to. Our hearts usually shut down in this situation as we are helpless, but in your “subconscious” mind you noticed this situation and the scene in your mind replace emotions as dirty water in your dream.

As I have closed on the above paragraph, it is important that the understanding of universal suffering may play on your dreams and be seen as “water” and interestingly there is a need to be aware of our own thoughts and what we are exposed to in daily life.
