Our deepest fears are represented by the sea. The state of the sea you dream of is significant. A stormy sea can suggest passionate, fiery emotions that threaten to take control. The threat of being swept out to sea suggests fear of emotional overwhelm. • Looming danger is represented by huge waves, rough seas and the incoming tide. What’s approaching in your life that threatens to engulf you? • Sometimes dreams of this nature occur when you’re worried about finances and feel like you’re drowning in unpaid bills. • Or this dream can signify fear itself – all those worries and anxieties that occur during the daily ebb and flow of life. The sea also relates to our origins, it is a source of creativity, of fertility and birth.
