Detailed dream interpretation

Sinking in a dream is associated with the world of your unconscious, and it can refer to the loss of your confidence and assurance. Seeing another person sinking in your dream means that you know at this point that you are having a problem, but also that you need help from the outside world in order to deal with it. You might have lost your ground in regard to this problem.

Dreaming of yourself sinking in water is a sign that some of your feelings are eating you alive. Sinking in sand or in mud portends not only some fear in regard to your feelings, but also some imbalances in your moral stability, something that is bad for you not only spiritually and morally, but also physically.

Seeing yourself sinking could mean that you have lost your courage in the waking life. It could mean you have lost control, and hence, you cannot move forward at the moment. If you dream of objects sinking, this means you could lose an object or even a person very dear to you. Spiritually speaking, sinking portends a situation in which you cannot find the right approach.

Sinking could indicate misery and unsatisfied needs. Sinking really deep refers to your inner instability. If you dream of a sinking boat, this means a hidden danger is possible, but also a separation. Sinking in water suggests money loss, while sinking in mud means useless expenses.
