A flood signifies the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Old grievances and emotional difficulties are washed away, leaving a clear head and a clear way forward. If we are not good at expressing ourselves verbally, dreaming of a flood may allow us to come to terms with our anxieties and worries in an appropriate way. An overflow of repressed or unconscious feelings needs to be got out of the way before progress can be made. Flood dreams are fascinating, because while frightening, they often indicate a release of positive energy. To be in the middle of a flood indicates we may feel we are being overwhelmed by feelings or circumstances, while watching a flood suggests we are simply watching ourselves. Sometimes a flood dream can indicate depression. You might also like to consult the entry for Water.
