Ever dream of rising flood waters? That’s actually a fairly common dream, especially for women. It’s especially common for women because water in dreams tends to be connected to our emotions and we of the fairer sex tend to be pretty emotional creatures! Below is a perfect example of how rising water in a dream is not only showing us our current emotional state but how it can also be a very serious warning we need to pay attention to.
Last night I dreamed I was standing in flood water. It was rising and rising and it was really cold. I was trying to move through it and realized I was naked! What does this mean? – Lisa, Milwaukee, WI
Lauri: Is someone around you giving you the cold shoulder or just plain emotionally cold? Or are you the one that has grown cold towards someone else? Sounds like you are in a pretty icy situation in waking life! The flood waters suggest you feel this situation is getting worse. You are trying to move through the water because you must be trying to just get through this
situation already and the nakedness may mean you aren’t sure how to protect yourself emotionally from this. Or perhaps you are feeling a bit exposed or vulnerable. Your dream is giving you an honest portrayal of your current circumstances so you can better know how to handle them.
Lisa replies: My mother in law has been with us for two weeks and is driving me insane. She just left this morning but she comes for weeks at a time and it’s too much. It wears on me and makes me feel like I can’t be myself at home or do my “usual” things like watch TV and chill. Her longest stay was a month last year. It’s making me nuts. nuts. nuts. I now know I need to get the balls to tell my husband that this isn’t working for me anymore and she can’t come for that long! Thank you!
Like Lisa’s dream, your dreams are trying to help you improve your current circumstances as well. When faced with a problem you don’t know how to handle, just look to your dreams because they truly do hold all the answers. After all, your dreams are coming from you – the deepest, wisest part of you – so they naturally know what is best for you! When you can understand your dreams you can make huge, positive and lasting changes in your life, in your relationships, in your behavior and in your personal world. My latest book Dream on It will help you easily understand the messages your dreams are giving you so you can get an edge in life.
“Your book has been so helpful. I’m seeing my dreams in a much different light. I can’t believe how simple the symbology is once you get the hang of it. “ – Patricia, Chico, CA
