Interpretation of dream: Drowning

Drowning symbolizes an immersion in the Sea of Life, and therefore a loss of ego. We seem to have nothing to support our efforts. When we are drowning in a dream this usually indicates we are in danger of being overwhelmed by emotions we cannot handle. We are fearful of allowing our emotions free expression. Drowning may also indicate a perceived inability to handle a stressful situation around us at the time of the dream. We have been put in a situation over which we have no control. We may be 'floundering around' with no way of being able to escape from the difficulty. Also consult the entries for Swimming and Water.
