Water dreams are very common because water represents your emotions, and how you feel about the changes that you face, as you move through life. To dream of turbulent water suggests a sense of emotional crisis associated with moving forward. Water flooding the feet can be symbolic of changes to the path that incorporate feelings and sensitivity. Water flooding into a house can represent integrating feelings with thoughts and ideas. Water flooding over ground can symbolize changes to your foundation that need to give way to feelings. Flooding can be a positive dream about being on the threshold of emotional growth and the release of feelings. In all of our ancient stories, water is the mysterious reservoir where the hero is to retrieve a treasure. Similarly, raging water often initiates you into a process of self-discovery. Floods can undermine the foundation of your beliefs until you are forced to let go. What you thought was solid and what you thought you needed, is washed away in the pursuit of basic survival or real fulfillment. Water can also represent health and wellness since it is a symbol of the elixir of life. See Dam and Natural Disasters under Landscape and Scenery.
