Dreaming about water represents your sense of inner peace and how the energy is flowing through your soul. Water is an essential element for us all to live and this could be a sign that something fundamental in your life is missing. If you are floating in a pool of water this suggests that you are at peace and are content with the world.
It suggests that you are calm and open, you know who you are and are comfortable with that person. If you dream that water is boiling this suggests you are in turmoil and trying to come to terms with a difficult situation. Feelings that you have repressed may be bubbling up from your subconscious and need to be addressed.
If someone throws water at you or water is dropped on you from above this can be a sign that you need to express your emotions more openly as people around you are frustrated that you are so disconnected from everything. Alternatively if the water feels shockingly cold, it can represent your need to release some steam and cool down.
To dream about water rising above your head suggests that you are becoming overwhelmed by your emotions and are struggling to keep a clear head. To dream about being surrounded by muddy water suggests that you are not sure what direction to take and you need to reflect and clear the water from around you to be able to see which course is the right one.
If you dream about running water this shows that you are trying to understand your own emotions and discover more about yourself through reflection and meditation.
If you dream about walking on water this shows that you are very much in control of your emotional state and can sometimes appear closed off to others who are unable to follow in your footsteps.
Similarly dreaming about a wall of water, or walking behind a waterfall can show that you are closed off emotionally and others find it difficult to relate to you.
