  5. I have a recurring dream that I am drowning. Often it is from a flood or tsunami and I am scared or I am in blue water breathing in the water but knowing I’m going to die. I also dream of a hand holding my head down under murky water but I am not fighting back. I often awake with a start when dreaming I’m inhaling the water. Why is this a common theme in my dreams?

  6. I saw a dream in which I was on a boat and I had a fish (shark) enclosed in a cover. The fish tried to escape and during this it threw me out. I was thrown in ocean but I reached a wall and I hold it. I was very frightened and called for help. One of my brother who can’t swim jumped in water to save me. When I saw him I was worried that he can’t swim. On the other side of wall 2 uncles of one of my close friend were standing. One of them came to help me and hold my hand. During this time my brother managed to reach me and when my brother reached it was not my younger brother it was my elder brother who can swim and he was happy to see me safe and turned back.

  7. I had a dream a few nights ago where I committed suicide by putting a backpack filled with weights and jumping off some kind of structure into the water. I remember being embarrassed because I left some personal items lying around. I experienced the whole thing, fighting to stop breathing in the water, then finally letting go and breathing in the water slowly. I know that I died, but that is when I woke up.

  8. What I read helped a little but I want to know if the dream I had about drowining, I let myself drown not wanting help or getting help

  9. My dream last night had me in water with my friend, she was able to easily get out of the water but I was dragged under by a strong and quick current. I struggled to find my way out and swim to the shallower area where I was previously in next thing I know I was under the water, it was dark and murky I couldn’t see anything I constantly tried to find the surface of the water but no matter where I looked I couldn’t find the surface then I ran out of breath and basically gave up on my life being to tired from struggling I just gave up on everything. I breathed in the water as if to just kill myself but instead of dying I woke up into another dream sweating and out of breath….I couldn’t tell if I died or if I survived…I just know I was terrified.
