Dreaming of Drowning Children

Dreams Decoded here. Post your dream and I will do my best to help you understand what your subconscious is trying to tell you. Go ahead and post your dream, I dare you..

Dream from the mailbag: 

My friend/sister in law called me crying telling me she had a dream that we were some where with a pool and she asked where D (her son & my nephew) was and then she heard a woman screaming and at the bottom of the pool was my 3 year old daughter and her 4 year old son. She said they tried to do CPR on the kids but that it was too late they couldn’t bring them back. What does this mean? I’m freaking out cause my daughter is my life. And I love my nephew too and would never want anything to happen to either one of them. Please help.

Dream Decoded:

Let me set your mind at ease that it is highly unlikely that your sister-in-law’s dream was predicting actual events. It is more likely that it is reflecting inner fears.

…we were some where with a pool and she asked where D (her son & my nephew) was and then she heard a woman screaming and at the bottom of the pool was my 3 year old daughter and her 4 year old son.

Drowning dreams are quite common but that doesn’t seem to quell the upset they seem to cause. Let’s take the first symbol you mention, a pool, and dive a little deeper. I tend to look at water as a symbol for life force energy, the flow of life, sometimes sexuality. A pool is a large, still, body of water. This may relate to the idea that your children are in a somewhat confined environment but are “in over their head”, are ill prepared for current circumstances of their lives or are in danger of being overwhelmed it. Perhaps your sister-in law is fearing that both of your children are developmentally behind in someway or are not prepared in to handle things without constant supervision. These sorts of dreams can be triggered by conscious or unconscious fears or sometimes thoughts and feelings of the day before the dream. Ask your sister-in-law to consider whether her dream might have been triggered by a conversation or activity where she had fears about the progress  your young children are making… think of a situation where they are in the same boat, metaphorically speaking.  Because she heard a woman screaming, attention on this situation or the initial concerns may have been triggered by someone other than either of you.

She said they tried to do CPR on the kids but that it was too late they couldn’t bring them back.

CPR is a logical response to a drowning situation and may represent the desire to respond to whatever circumstances are causing the fear by taking logical or appropriate measures. One idea as to why the rescue was unsuccessful could mean that whatever actions are being considered will be ineffective or will not change the outcome of the situation. This doesn’t mean that your children can’t be saved, but it may mean that your sister-in-law fears that whatever steps are taken won’t work. Death is nothing more than a transition between two states of being. Perhaps the death being described in the dream is not a literal physical death but the transition from infant to childhood.

All in all, it is my opinion that your children are not in any physical danger but maybe there is a present fear they are growing up too fast which can cause parent to worry that they are loosing their little babies. Truth is, our babies do grow up and although we want more than anything to ensure that they do so successfully, without injury and we want to help them to survive, there will come a time in every child’s life where they are tasked to swim through life on their own. Your children are young, but they are not immune to the flow of life and hopefully mom’s fears will be replaced by faith in their inherent abilities and the natural human tendency to survive and thrive.

Hope this helps!
