The sink captures the idea of how feelings are retained, and turned on and off, since water generally symbolizes emotions. The sink itself, is usually where we wash or remove unnecessary residue as a symbol of washing away difficulty or outworn ideas. If it is a kitchen sink, the dream can be exploring fulfillment and how holding onto feelings is affecting your sense of happiness and fulfillment in the present. Often the kitchen ties dream imagery to what is adopted from family dynamics. If it is a bathroom sink, the idea is more personal in your desire to be more intimate or revealing of yourself. Turbid water in a sink symbolizes painful feelings that need to be released. See also Faucet.
