The symbolism of a flood in a nightmare is similar to other cataclysms, meaning a destructive, unstoppable force against which the dreamer is helpless. According to some dream books, water is linked to feelings; therefore the flood illustrates the excess of emotions that have filled your life recently. It may also be a hint that you have engaged too much in a relationship or feeling and lost control over it.
Flood is a universal symbol of world destruction. Therefore, this dream often means the end of some period of life and the beginning of a new one.
- Flood may symbolize the release of content that has been pushed over the years into subconsciousness, such as unfulfilled desires and impulses.
- If flood water in your dream gets into your home, you should pay attention to its look. If it is clean it heralds a visit. The murky, dirty water promises trouble.
- Seeing people dying and drowning in the waves proclaims mourning.
- If in a dream you lost your entire life possessions, then it is a warning signal that you attach too much attention to material goods instead of enjoying life.
- The upcoming flood is a warning. You will experience hard times.
