What do dreams about waves mean? Water in dreams is always your emotions. The state of the water in question is an excellent gauge to the inland ocean of your psyche. Turbulent water is troubled feelings. A placid rockpool lit by the sunset suggests a calmer temperament. When your dreams are giant waves sweeping in, your subconscious is signaling that beneath your business-as-usual demeanor or stoic insistence on everything being okay, you do have strong emotions. And without expression, they could become overwhelming.
I dreamt of tsunamis nearly every night in December 2004. I was dutifully recording the dreams in my diary, trying to understand what feelings could be so overwhelming. In the final one, on Christmas Eve, I was standing in a hotel room, freaking out at a hotel bill, saying to someone, “I actually cannot pay this.” But it was not me. In the dream, I was looking over the woman’s shoulder. She said to the man outside on the balcony; “are you listening?” She looks up irritably and sees him agape at a giant wave on the horizon. They look at one another aghast.
Dreams About Waves Reveal The State Of Your Psyche
I woke up wondering what the hell that was about and then a few days later there was the infamous Boxing Day tsunami. But dreams about waves are very rarely prophetic in that way. A wave is an energetic surge of Water element. So think about what prompts the wave, who is with you and where you are. Notice how also in the dream, the water comes and washes over you, but you’re fine. It’s like when you have strong emotions that you’d rather not be feeling, but once they come, you’re not wrecked by them. You can swim, or you’re grounded.
