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!

Dreaming of a Beautiful Bridge and a Drowning Son

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 dream I was standing on a bridge arch shaped, in a country side  – with some people, talking, looking down in to the river water, leaning close to the dark green wooden railings. Bridge was beautiful – like in 19th century British countryside ones. Immediately, I saw my son in the river, drowning. How he fell in to it I have no clue. He was not on the bridge. I wanted to save him – threw my hands out -saying that is my son, but water just covered him and the dream ended. I could not save him. River water was crystal clear. It was countryside with trees on the bank. The people with me – I can not identify anyone, but I knew them. It was not a nightmare. The feeling I had was surprise – like how come my son is in the water and drowning?
 
Same night I again dreamt of him drowning but not clear. Then I dreamt I was drowning and I was seeing it. I did not feel suffocation or water or anything, because I was looking at my drowning. Last 2 dreams were not clear as the first one.
All these were not nightmares; I was not upset or crying or scared – but surprised.
 
I have a son who is 21 years old.
