Why am I dreaming that my daughter falls into water?

I had a dream last night that I was talking to my mom near a pond. A minute later, I realized that my 2 year old daughter wasn’t around. I started screaming for her, but she wouldn’t answer. I jumped into the pond and saw her floating near the bottom looking at me. I grabbed her and brought her to the top. I laid her in the grass and started pushing on her belly to get the water out of her lungs. She was completely fine after that.

This is the second time I’ve dreamed of saving my daughter from drowning. Why do I keep dreaming about this? It’s horrifying!

  • Talking to your Mom near a pond indicates a general peaceful nature and your Mom would indicate wisdom. Your daughter indicates immaturity allowing itself to be overwhelmed or drowning in emotion. Diving into the water and pulling your daughter out indicates that by taking charge and being more in control of yourself and your immaturity you can breathe new life into different situations. Purging yourself of bad and/or immature emotions will breathe new life into your existence and allow you to save it, whatever "it" is…

    The dream is telling you to control over-emotionalism and immaturity.

  • Falling Into Water Dream

  • To see someone drowning in your dream, suggests that you are becoming too deeply involved in something that is beyond your control. Alternatively, it represents a sense of loss in your own identity. You are unable to differentiate who you are anymore.

    To dream that you rescue someone from drowning, indicates that you have successfully acknowledged certain emotions and characteristics that is symbolized by the drowning victim.

    Hope this helped – does sound horrifying!

  • Perhaps you have a decision to make and you feel like it is a bit risky or there is much unknown. Water is the symbol of emotions; jumping off a cliff would be taking a risk and going into the unknown. Flying could indicate a substantial amount of success can be gained by taking the risk.

  • Dreaming of someone draining could symbolize some helplessness in you. You may be feeling that there is a need to give full attention to your daughter. Somehow, in your subconscious mind, you don’t feel what you have done is enough.

    Projecting saving her afterwards suggests that you subconsciously feel guilty about things you have done, but you wanted to make it up somehow.

    Since this is recurring dream, it may reflect some insecurity around you. Examine your life lately whether it is financial situation or any stressful situation, they may trigger the dream.

  • Water in dreams signifys emotions, the fact that you keep rescuing your daughter suggests you are worried about your daughter and fear for her. It is a common theme with parents. lol

    It also suggests that you have to let go, to not be so controlling and to allow your child to fall now and then. As parents we can be far too protective and not allow our children to grow and learn on their own.

    The fact you have had this dream before confirms this.

  • my mum had the same dream about her grand daughter. she dreamt a couple of months ago that she was drowning in a canal. but there was no canal near where my sister lived. but now my sister has just moved into a new area, which has a canal round the corner from her. and now my mum is really worried.

    she also dreamt a few years ago that our old next door neighbour was being carried out of his house and he was not alive. and a week later he really did die of a heart attack. coincidence?

  • sounds like dreams as wish fulfillment
