Dreaming of a Teenage Daughter Drowned

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: 

I had a very disturbing dream last night…my usual dreams are of everyday things and them causing me stress, like problems at work or with my car etc…just stressful everyday things, and I wake up exhausted because I was dealing with problems all night; however last night was over the top. I do not remember the beginning of the dream but it starts in my memory about someone in my office having money and going to perhaps pay off my coworkers student loan, and then also mine (which I don’t have) although I have other debt, a student loan is not one…but in this dream I guess I had one, I went in to my kids bathroom and pulled out a ledger type book with loose papers sticking out, it was in the cabinet under the sink, it was dim as the light was not on, I could see because over the tub is a frosted window that lets light in, although it was twilight…I walked over to the tub to fix the shower curtain because it was all bunched together in the center of the tub and I was going to pull it across the rod, when I get to the tub I look down and I see my 14 yo daughter laying face up, fully clothed in water over her face, clearly drowned, I was so startled by this image I immediately woke up. I was disturbed and angry that my mind would allow this image and also for it to be so unsuspecting and finite in nature. I can not imagine what I might be thinking that would manifest this dream…help

Dream Decoder *-* Symbols *-* Child Drowning

By far, seeing a child drown in a dream has been the most commonly asked about dream symbol. So, I thought it might be wise to take a moment to dig into this symbol on its own and with some detail. Of course, these are only my ideas on the subject, so use your powers of discernment and follow those things that ring true to you.

Panic, fear and worry surround this particular symbol, don’t they? To me, the very thought of watching my child or any child drown is disturbing and generates immediate concern. So, when one sees this in a dream, they might look for a situation involving the child and the perception that a child is struggling or is not able to overcome life’s obstacles; an inability to cope.  The idea of being swept away, overwhelmed and sinking also come to mind.

If the dreamer is childless or the child is not their own, then a child might be used to represent a young, creative or emotionally invested responsibility. This can be a job or a project, anything where the relationship dynamic is one of parent/child. So, to see a child drowning from that perspective, the responsibility may be in trouble and you are a witness to it. Consider that there is an abundance of energy with no direction, no place to go.

As I see it, water represents the emotions. The flowing outward of source energy; flow of life; the momentum at which things in life are moving. Still waters may represent a dormant state of this flow; a pool of life-force energy that is still. Deep water can equal emotional depth. In the case of still waters then, consider the need for an outlet of this energy. A place for the excess emotion to go.

The body of water offers clues to both the environmental state and the breadth of the flow or backup of emotional energy.  An ocean, for example, might suggest world-wide prevalence or a powerful abundance of energy while a bathtub would point to something a more intimate or private and only concerning a select few. Take the idea of a child drowning in a frozen lake, this might symbolize a medium sized school where the kids are being very cruel or cold to one another. It could represent immobility or a solidified state. While a waterfall, may indicate a clear delineation of levels in life or a defined precipice from which things are falling; a swift lowering of elevation, coming down from a higher state, etc… But we always seem to be talking about the same thing, the flow or current state of our life.

When we see this symbol we might want to ask ourselves if there is an  overabundance of emotion that needs to be flowing or would benefit from a some direction or an outlet thereby removing the threat of drowning.

Hope this helps!
