In recent years and through the power of the media, public awareness of tidal waves and tsunami’s is growing, along with knowledge of the devastating consequences these events can bring about.
But can this have an impact upon the meaning of them in your dream?
Waves have traditionally symbolised emotions so when we talk about them washing over us in a dream, this can represent powerful feelings which have arrived unexpectedly.
It may be that at the time you have a ‘waves’ dream, you have been going through a difficult time. Perhaps you were expected to carry on, burying your feelings so they may be dealt with at a later date. This dream can acknowledge that it’s time to stop supressing those feelings and acknowledge the powerful impact of events which have taken their toll. The severity of the waves (especially in the case of a tsunami) will often suggest the need for these feelings to be laid out in the open, maybe with the help of a friend or a qualified professional, before they get the better of you – in other words, before you may have an outburst, which you would much rather have controlled. This is particularly relevant if you describe the tide as a tsunami – you may consider that the onset of recent events (or your actionsas a result) have been catastrophic in some way.
If you describe the sea as stormy, this may possibly relate to a relationship which has been unpredictable of late. If the tide is washing something or someone away, this can represent a fear of losing those things which are important to you. (This doesn’t mean it will happen).
With continued awareness of environmental impact, it’s fair to say that you may have a tsunami dream if you are consciously active in terms of our responsibilities to the planet and see this as a sign to take an active interest in a ‘greener’ lifestyle and promote this in a positive way.
Gentle waves is often a good sign in dreams that all is, or will be well. The calmness, serenity and stillness of the sea can reflect that life has been or will be about to calm down and become more comfortable. Water in general can also mean time for cleansing and purification.
