In a dream, water is supposed to represent your state of mind, so the meaning of your dream depends on what the water was doing.

Dreams About Clean And/Or Flowing Water These dreams are generally thought to be signs of a clear conscience and a peaceful state of mind, so relax - there's nothing to worry about!
Dreams About Dirty Water A dream about muddy or dirty water could mean that your thoughts are clouded and muddled. Another interpretation is that you're feeling sorry for yourself or dwelling on negative thoughts and feelings.

Dreams About Waves And Tsunamis The water in your dream is supposed to represent your state of mind, so depending on the severity of the waves, this dream could mean you're feeling slightly unsettled or completely out of control.

It's also worth thinking about how the water made you feel. Did it worry or frighten you? If it did, don't fret - it just means that you might need to address a few problems in your life. Alternatively, your dream could just be a sign that you drank too much water before going to bed!

Dreams often give us an insight into our state of mind.

If you dream about flowing water it may be that you are searching for peace or a sense of connection with nature.

However, a better indication is how the dream made you feel. If it disturbed you, could be there is something on your mind and you feel things are unsettled (e.g. Fluid) in your life. If it gave you a peaceful feeling, then maybe my first explanation is more probable.

I have had similar dreams. I have found out that it usually means you are either feeling overwhelmed by all the things going on in your life, like you are going to drown, OR it simply means you drank too many fluids before bed, and you better get up and go to the bathroom before you pee in your PJ's. Not trying to be funny, just true.

This dream could mean different things to different individuals.
  • Are you a spiritual person? In the Bible, water represents the Holy Spirit.
  • What does water represent to you? It's sort of like the color yellow. Some people might think of sunflowers, a school bus or a taxi.
I believe dreams are best interpreted by the dreamer because that same dream could mean something different to each of us.

What my Aunt tells me is that someone in your family or someone close to you is hurting or ill.

This is usually call a wet dream or a water dream (according to my aunt, she studies dreams and their meanings).

When I dream about a tsunami or a big wave at a beach that is going to wipe out the whole town or village and I am with my family or looking for my family, that means that someone in my family is either sick or hurt, or that they need me just to talk to them or just to let them know that I am there for them.

If the water isn't clean and is dirty maybe it means bad luck. If the water is clean and has a lot of lively things in it, it might mean good luck.

  • If you dream you are standing on shore and watching the waves foam up as they break over the beach, this foretells that you will have some narrow escape from an accident or an injury.
  • If you are far out on the ocean and hear the waves as they lap against the hull of the ship, you will have setbacks in your business.
  • To sail on a calm sea is always a good omen for all concerned.
  • To see yourself working on a beach shore shows that you will soon be involved with a job, or project, that will be demanding of you in both time and effort.
  • If you are just relaxing on the sand this shows that you value the calm feelings that family get-togethers lend to you
  • If you see yourself sitting on a beach and letting the sand run through your fingers that shows that you are running out of time on something important.
