Crossing the water (emotion) in a vessel (desire to move forward) that relies on the wind can portray moving with events to harness difficulty where you can transform it. If the water is calm, you may have moved out of a difficult period and are feeling more in control of your emotions. If the water is choppy or frightening, it can portray your current sense of fear that you are not feeling self directed. The message of this type of dream can be about trusting that the path is leading you where you need to be, where the wind can symbolize fate. It can also be coaching you to let go and allow events to lead you forward. "If you cannot change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails and let it guide you."
