Sea Dream Meaning: From 29 Different Sources


Sea

(1) The sea may represent the unconscious. Putting out to sea may, therefore, symbolize an exploring of the unconscious. Drowning may represent (the fear of) having vour conscious mind swamped by unconscious contents - repressed emotions and the like. It may also mean that your conscious ego needs to submit to your unconscious for a while, for the further enrichment and development of your personality. See also Baptism.

(2) The sea may be a mother symbol.

If so, it may represent either your own mother or Mother Nature. Drowning or fear of drowning would then symbolize (a fear of) being suffocated by a dominating mother or mother-attachment; or an unconscious death-wish. See also Dead / Death, section (4).

(3) Sea may symbolize the feminine, or any aspect of it (e.g. intuition, receptiveness). For a male dreamer, therefore, going to sea may symbolize getting acquainted with the feminine in himself - the anima (See Brother / Sister, sections (4)-(6))

(4) Sea may symbolize creative potential. In mythology, water existed prior to creation, and the creator-god wresded with the sea-goddess and either made the world from her dismembered body or else impregnated her so that she gave birth to the world. Psychologically, therefore, the sea may symbolize the existence, within your psyche, of potential - the latent raw materials - for the creation of your true and total self.

(5) In mystic-meditative traditions there is the belief that the multiplicity of natural phenomena are merely different forms of one ultimately real thing (God, Brahman, Ultimate Reality, the One); and the One is commonly symbolized by the ocean, and the individual person or thing by a drop of water which eventually rejoins the sea from which it originally came. Freudians, like Moussaieff Masson, in his book. The Oceanic Feeling, may say that, if this piece of imagery appears in your dream, it signifies a death-wish, as in (2) above. Jungians would say it is a message from your unconscious concerning the disillusionment that awaits you if you continue to build your life round the ego, instead of acknowledging the One (life-force, God, or whatever you care to call it). Whether the Freudian or the Jungian interpretation fits you better should be easy to decide. See also Introduction, pages 8-10.

A Dictionary of Dream Symbols | Eric Ackroyd

SEA

Most activities which underlie our physical and mental life are beyond our awareness. Occasionally something—an ache in the chest, a strange emotion which unsettles us—may emerge into consciousness, then disappear.

The sea, with its surface and hidden depths, lends itself to depicting this hu­man experience of known and unknown regarding self.

The enormity of the sea is also a visible image of the enormity of our own inner world, most of it unknown, and also the rela­tionship we have with the universe, which we exist in yet know so little about.

The sea holds vast treasures, curiosities, and our history—not simply because life emerged from the sea. or our blood is as salt as the ancient sea, but because so many ships and shorelines are now beneath the waves. Some­times these can be recovered, and this depicts our remember­ing or making conscious.

Example: ‘My husband and I were standing looking at the sea’s surface. It was just falling night. I saw a mass of dark shapes, thought it would be a school of fish. Then we were looking at water birds, maybe ducks, again dark shapes as the light had almost gone. Then there was a hole in the sea, like a belly button, I was wondering what it was, how was it being made, was there something under the water? Something very big was coming up to the surface very close to me. It shot me to wake (Ginny Q). Ginny and her husband had been explor­ing the content of their dreams.

The image of the sea shows Ginny sensing there are enormous depths to her own being, and something big—a previously unconscious complex of in­sights and feelings—is becoming conscious.

So, generally the sea represents the boundary between un­conscious and conscious; our processes of life and the ongins of our life; the wisdom, still unverbalised because locked in process rather than insight, of our existence; source of the huge life drives, such as that which urges us towards indepen­dence, mating and parenthood, a symbol of infinite energy or consciousness, in which human existence is only a tiny pan. Example: A small speed boat was at sea. But the sea dis­solved anybody who fell in. One man fell in but held himself together as a blob of water and jumped back to the speedboat. I remember the words “The sea is a great solvent” (Tim P). Tim is aware of his unconscious sense of being a pan of the huge sea of life or energy. In it one might lose one’s sense of identity. In the end, identity is ‘held together’ by one’s own belief in oneself.

Going under the sea: bringing internal contents to con­sciousness; remembering the womb expenence; letting our ego surrender a little, looking at death.

If there is a sense of hugeness, depth: going beyond the boundaries of experience usually set up by our conscious self or ego. Waves: impulses, feelings and emotions, such as sexuality, anxiety, anger. Tide: rising and falling of feelings such as love, pleasure or sexual­ity; may refer to aging when going out; tide in our affairs. Example: *l am either standing at the edge of the sea or near, when suddenly enormous tidal waves appear in the distance and are coming closer. I know they will engulf me, I turn and run away. Sometimes they do overtake me, other times I wake up’ (Mrs AV). We can run from pleasure and wider insight, just as much as from pain or fear. Idioms: all at sea, plenty more fish in the sea, lost at sea. See beach; fish, sea crea­tures.

Sea

Vision: If the sea is calm and the sky is clear: peaceful days are ahead.

If the seas are stormy and the waves high: you feel threatened and are afraid of “stormy” times. You are swim- ming: friendly, if invisible, energies are carrying you right now. Falling into the water: a tragic event. Drowning: a harmful situation has been avoided, because you are discovering the substance of your being. Emerging from the sea: a new beginning, one that is in harmony with your very essence.

A man dreaming of standing on a beach means he wants to be free and independent.

Depth Psychology: The sea is a symbol of the collective unconscious; you can trust it to carry you. It may also be a symbol of your feminine, motherly side—all life originated in the sea. Unconscious thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and hopes are at home here and are now beginning to surface and become conscious. This is the sea on which the boat of your life is sailing.

Sea

To dream of hearing the lonely sighing of the sea, foretells that you will be fated to spend a weary and unfruitful life devoid of love and comradeship. Dreams of the sea, prognosticate unfulfilled anticipations, while pleasures of a material form are enjoyed, there is an inward craving for pleasure that flesh cannot requite.

For a young woman to dream that she glides swiftly over the sea with her lover, there will come to her sweet fruition of maidenly hopes, and joy will stand guard at the door of the consummation of changeless vows. See Ocean.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

Sea

The sea and oceans are considered the source of life and the end of it. “To go back to the sea” is like “to return to the mother”: to die. The sea is one of the basic archetypes, as it also represents the collective unconscious and universal love. This dream, therefore, is related to your interior and the interpretation can be almost literal. Thus, a calm sea indicates tranquility; if agitated, it predicts difficulties; if you fall into it, illness or problems caused by unbridled passions; if you let yourself sink, it reflects a pessimistic outlook on life; if you struggle to reach the surface, it indicates that you are fighting with all your strength. The sea also represents the original chaos, the beginning and end of everything. Its fluidity is like the unconscious that can never be fully plumbed, grasped, nor understood.

It is the boundless freedom and yet comforting sweetness of the mother’s womb. (See WATER, DROWNING, BLUE, BOAT, LAKE, MOTHER, and MOON)

In primitive myths, the sea existed before the world. It was uterus of other living beings. The sea is a symbol of raw materials and is associated with the creative potential of our being. From a spiritual perspective, it can represent the whole. We are each the drops that form part of it. According to some superstitions, falling into the sea ensures good health; and dive into it and emerge just before waking ensures that current difficulties will be overcome.

Our deepest fears are represented by the sea.

The state of the sea you dream of is significant.

A stormy sea can suggest passionate, fiery emotions that threaten to take control.

The threat of being swept out to sea suggests fear of emotional overwhelm.

• Looming danger is represented by huge waves, rough seas and the incoming tide. What’s approaching in your life that threatens to engulf you? • Sometimes dreams of this nature occur when you’re worried about finances and feel like you’re drowning in unpaid bills.

• Or this dream can signify fear itself - all those worries and anxieties that occur during the daily ebb and flow of life.

The sea also relates to our origins, it is a source of creativity, of fertility and birth.

Accident At Sea

To dream of an accident at sea suggests potential problems with those who are close to you, or some kind of disappointment in love.

If water overwhelms you, you are likely to feel overwhelmed by emotions.

If this is the case, you need to assess how best to manage your feelings and put them into context.

If you are trying to save other people in a shipwreck, you need to think about what these people represent to you. For instance, if you are trying to save a baby, perhaps that represents an element in your waking life, such as unconditional love, or wonder and excitement, that you need to develop in your waking life to help you cope with your emotional response.... accident at sea dream meaning

The Element Encyclopedia

Air-sea Rescue

(see also Sea) (1) The sea may represent your mother.

If you need to assert your independence from your mother, therefore, the dream may mean that rescue is at hand - rescue from the possessive psychological grip of your mother. See also Mother.

(2) The sea may represent the feminine in genera]. In this case your dream may be drawing your attention to (the need for) some remedy for an imbalance in your psyche caused, for example, by insufficient assertiveness. See also Woman; and see pages 46-49 on anima / animus.

(3) The sea may be a symbol of the unconscious. In this case, the aircraft in the dream may symbolize reason rescuing you from a hitherto uncontrolled sea of emotions - uncontrolled because unrecognized and repressed.

NB To be ‘rescued from the unconscious’ means only to put an end to a situation in which vour life is being determined and shaped by forces outside vour control (a situation symbolized bv drowning). It does not mean that the unconscious is itself a negative, harmful thing. On the contrary, it is vour unconscious that is telling vou - in the dream - that something has gone wrong in your life and what you must do to put vour house in order.

(4) For Jung the first stage of the individuation process is the establishing of the person’s individual ego-identity, and this involves a struggle of consciousness to lift itself out of the all-encompassing darkness of unconscious existence. See also Drowning.... air-sea rescue dream meaning

Back Seat

The back seat of a vehicle (or a seat that’s not near the driver) can represent: Being or feeling away from the main action or events.

Being an observer in a group process rather than a full participant or decision maker.

Following others or “just along for the ride.” Secondary or inferior, or feeling that way.

Consider the context and the intention of the person in the back seat.

If they’re trying to direct the driver, they could represent a desire for more control in a particular situation.

If happily riding, they could represent someone who was present but not a primary player in the real-life events represented in the dream.

Islamic Dream Interpretation

Fish, Sea Creatures

When we will to speak or move, uncon­scious physical and psychological impulses and processes oc­cur to produce the response. These deeply unconscious pro­cesses are often depicted by fish. Also the attitudes and urges we have in common with humanity—the collective uncon­scious, and the impulses or insights arising therefrom—can therefore represent the Self or Christ; sexual drive in connec­tion with reproduction, the many little fishes being sperm. In this sense we are the fish which swam the incredible journey and grew into a human, but is still on the odyssey of life and death.

The fish may be the wisdom we have not yet brought to consciousness, regarding our personal journey in time and eternity. Fishing: creating a receptive state of consciousness which allows the deep insights or processes to become known; trying to find spintual nourishment. Eating fish: inte­grating our inner realisations; partaking of Christ. Eaten by fish: feeling threatened by the unconscious; threat of losing conscious or rational direction of life. Dead fish: non-expres­sion of basic urges. ... fish, sea creatures dream meaning

Nature And The Seasons

Dreams that feature images of natural settings relate to those parts of your being that are natural or not molded by conscious ambitions and desires.

In the earliest religions, nature was thought to be alive with a multitude of spirits. The nature spirits were worshipped in order to maintain a harmony with them. Civilization and the advance of technology have inhibited our contact with those elemental energies and spirits. Your dreaming mind may, however, take you on a journey to the realm of nature spirits where you can explore or confront various elements of your unconscious. To go into nature in your dreams is therefore to go into the wilderness of your unconscious where you will encounter primordial instincts. For Freudians, these basic instincts would be sexual, whilst Jung would see natural settings as symbolic of the nurturing but sometimes harsh mother archetype.

Dreams of nature may also reflect your sense of being grounded or connected to Mother Earth. The dream environment may represent your core essence, unaffected by personality traits, your bare nature or something that comes naturally to you and is second nature. Finally, the great outdoors is usually seen as a surrounding that is supposed to bring relaxation and have a calming, nurturing effect on people; your dream may therefore be prompting you to take some time out from your busy routine. See also ELEMENTS; FLOWERS; PLACES; TREES; WEATHER.

Ocean Or Sea

Mystic Dream Book

Ocean / Sea

Dream oceans and seas represent the unconscious emotions, instincts or urges that are influencing your attitude, approach and reactions in waking life. Perhaps their most symbolic associations are with the unconscious mind, and with the ebb and flow of feelings that can sometimes build up into a tidal wave of emotion. The state of the sea in your dream is highly significant: a shallow sea suggests lack of emotion, a stormy sea suggests passion and a calm sea suggests peace.

The ocean and the sea are also a symbol of the feminine principle, so a dream of being overwhelmed by a wave may suggest that you are being smothered or dominated by a woman in your life, whilst calmly floating in the sea or surfing the waves suggests a good relationship with yourself, and perhaps with a woman.

If you are struggling against the tide, this is a sign that you are not making the progress you had anticipated, but that you are nonetheless gaining strength and wisdom from the struggle.

If a sea monster emerges from the depths, could this symbolize unconscious fear or even an aspect of yourself that is being repressed in waking life?... ocean / sea dream meaning

The Element Encyclopedia

Pilgrimage Season

(Mecca; Pilgrimage) Performing a pilgrimage during its season in a dream means dispelling one’s worries, distress, apprehensions or trouble. Praying or delivering a sermon at the valley of Mina during the pilgrimage season in a dream, and if neither the person seeing the dream or anyone in his family or clan qualify for that, it means that someone with the same name among his acquaintances will do so.

If this is not feasible, it means that he may face adversities, though become known for his good nature and deeds.

If a learned person sees himself delivering a sermon at Mina, and if the people listen to him attentively in the dream, it means that he will rise in station and lead his people, or he could be appointed as a project manager or become an administrator.

If one does not complete his sermon or prayers in the dream, it means that he will attain such a position, though he will be quickly removed from it.

Sea Voyage

According to Jung, a voyage at sea suggests an exploration of the unconscious. Freudians might see the sea as a symbol of the mother or the womb and therefore might regard a sea voyage as an incest wish. Freudians would certainly regard a ship as a phallic symbol, with a ship being tossed about in turbulent seas representing passionate love-making, and a sinking ship suggesting doomed love.

If you do dream of traveling in a boat, pay close attention to the conditions of travel as they will reveal much about your waking situation. Are the waters calm or is a storm building?

If the boat is drifting aimlessly on the water, you may feel that you are lacking direction, whilst if the boat capsizes, this suggests imminent danger or obstacles ahead.

If you are enjoying a tranquil boat ride that is slowly but surely heading in the right direction, this could imply a sense of anticipated success with a particular project in real life. A ferry is an archetypal vessel associated with transition from one stage of consciousness to another, and the ferryman is the archetypal wise old man.
