I’ve started having a recurring dream with a common theme of tsunami or flood. My first one was at least a month ago and I didn’t think much of it until I had the next one last week.
I was near the coast on holiday I think and a tsunami hit. I clung onto a verandah post with a guy with a beard and while the water was raging all around us we clung onto each other and looked deeply and meaningfully into each others eyes.
The tsunami or flood stopped and because of sharing that moment with each other we had a special bond but after a short while of hanging around together he started avoiding me and the special bond was gone.
A familiar theme here. I can’t remember the number of guys that have shown an interest in me to begin with and then have just as quickly lost interest without telling me this.
Last night I had another tsunami or flood dream. This time I was in a hotel up on a higher floor and when the tsunami hit it wiped out all the floors underneath me but carried our floor away intact and floating. Like a boat we went with the flow of the water. I say we but I don’t know who I was with. There was a guy that I talked to for a while but there wasn’t the special bond that I shared with the guy in the last dream. We could walk around sometimes but when there was another surge we sat down and held on to whatever we could. I remember looking out the window at some stage and we were in a really wavy, murky sea like the one in the Perfect Storm movie. I vaguely remember seeing other stuff floating around in the water but don’t remember what it was.
Eventually the water abated and we washed up on shore but we were in a bus now, not on the hotel floor. I got out the bus took stock of my surroundings and JJ walked up to me. He hadn’t featured in this dream or my last dream at all until now. It was a special moment and I was really glad to see him then I woke up.
I’ve looked on the internet to find out what this symbol of water/flood/tsunami means and have found these references.
Flood – ‘A variation of the obstacle dream, and for an accurate interpretation all its details should be correlated, but as a general guide: If the flood was gentle and the water clear, your troubles will be short-lived. If the water was muddy and/or the flood a raging destructive force, you can expect to have to hoe a long hard row. If you were swept away in the flood, it is a warning that someone of the opposite sex whom you trust is actually trying to use you. If you escaped from the flood, you will be helped to overcome your obstacles.’
Another interpretation – ‘…currently experiencing powerful emotions that may be overwhelming. … Depending on the content of the dream and your emotional experience in it, the flood could also represent sexuality and be a sexual dream symbol.’
So am I to take from these two meanings that I’m being overwhelmed by some strong emotions, or is it a sexual dream symbol. Definitely the first dream where I was clinging to someone looking into their eyes could be a sexual dream. Overwhelmed by emotions – I call that bringing up a nearly four year old child on my own. I’m awash with emotions and sometimes it is too much.
I welcome feedback on my dreams and will update if I have any further flood type dreams.
