Flood / Drought / Famine / Tsunami

Flood dreams are frightening, but they also suggest a release of energy or pent- up frustration that needs to be set free before progress can be made. To be in the middle of a flood indicates that you are being overwhelmed by these feelings, whilst watching a flood suggests you are watching yourself.

If you are not good at expressing yourself verbally, dreaming of a flood may help you come to terms with your anxieties and insecurities.

If you dream of being drowned, it suggests you are in danger of being overwhelmed by emotions you cannot handle or that you are fearful of allowing your emotions free expression. Drowning may also indicate an inability to handle stress and a feeling that you have no control. The natural disasters of flooding, tsunami and drought indicate great hardship for the dreamer, but they also offer hope. For example, if you dream that you are immersed in rising water or that your house is flooded, this indicates the emergence of a personal crisis. However, if adequate precautions are put in place, or you heed warning signs of impending disaster, it is possible to avert or overcome the disaster. Similarly, a dream in which you endure a drought portends misfortune, and scant reward for your effort, but the dreamer can take comfort that this difficult time will pass, leaving you wiser and better prepared for any future crises with which life may surprise you.

Tidal waves or tsunamis often represent a cascade of emotion or impending change in your life. It is not unusual for someone struggling with a tough situation, such as the loss of a job, illness in the family and so on, to dream of being threatened by a tidal wave. A tidal wave in this instance depicts the emotional devastation that occurs when situations change in unexpected, or unwanted, ways. Whether the wave represents emotion, change, or something or someone else, to you the implication is that you are in the thick of it now and you have little to gain by running away or denying it. Your best approach is to ride the wave, accept that you feel overwhelmed for a while, but know that this isn’t permanent as the storm will run its course and you’ll emerge wiser and stronger.

Famine and drought dreams can also indicate that you are emotionally drained in waking life.

If you are hungry in your dream, your needs or demands, physically, emotionally and mentally are not being met.Starvation dreams also indicate that something within yourself is not being given due attention; aspects of yourself are being impoverished and ignored. Perhaps your partner is draining you and you are feeling exhausted.

If scenes of poverty feature in your dream, this often indicates feelings of being inadequate, or negative emotions depriving you of your well-being. On the other hand, dreams about starvation and poverty may be hinting at your humanitarian qualities, and could be suggesting that you could do more for charity.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you dream of waves, you are becoming aware and perhaps in acceptance of the ups and downs, highs and lows, ebbs and flows of the life/death/life cycle of life.

If you are riding and/or surfing the waves competently, with your head above water, you have a level of mastery with the emotions and cycles of life.

When dreaming of waves, notice the type of wave. Calm, clear waves indicate inner peace of mind. You are in touch with your emotions and are stable. Calm waves may also foreshadow upcoming decisions in your waking life. Crashing waves, especially when heard, indicates your sexual nature and your need to be loving and tender with your significant other. Violent, unclear waves imply you have made a poor choice regarding an important matter. Finally, if you are caught in an undertow or tidal wave, you have been holding yourself back.

Waves

Waves represents the threatening and sometimes stormy activity of the conscious, but also symbolizes a transcendent, open, and expressive emotion. To notice that you are being carried away by the waves indicates a passive attitude toward the circumstances, as minutiae easily distract you from your goals. By contrast, choppy waves announce a possible emotional conflict. Everything indicates that will jealousy and envy arise, and that aggressive outburst could occur at any time. However, this situation will be temporary. On the other hand, to dream that you walk over the waves predicts you will overcome the obstacles that separate you from your goal. (See WATER, LAKE, and SEA)

Dreams of waves denote, according to some superstitions, a need for inner cleansing.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Waves

Energy moves in waves, and any dream that features this motion is connected to the fundamental structure behind all movement. Waves in water are about emotional fluctuations. Waves that are more related to the physical laws of the universe are similar, but are more about thoughts and shifts of intellect. When waves are easy to navigate, all is well, as you can easily allow yourself to move with them. However, they can suddenly become overwhelming in the dream world, and if this occurs, you are examining your relationship to things beyond your ability to control.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
