dream swimAssociation: – Admiration by feelings through, – often from a successful feeling accompanied, – emotions as a sphere. Question: – Which emotional state gives me deep satisfaction? For which emotional support do I look?

In general:

One feels carried from a wave of the life and in the harmony with himself and other. Swimming in the dream stands in narrow connection with disappearing. If the dreaming swims upstream, this is a sign for the fact that he acts against his nature. Swimming fish symbolise seed and, hence, the wish for his pregnancy. If the dreaming is in clear water, he goes through a cleansing process. If he swims, however, in dark water, this one depression could symbolise. Swimming (swimmer) can refer to unaware instincts, desires and feelings with which one either lives in harmony or stands in contradiction. According to the other accompanying circumstances the above all following special meanings arise:

  • swimming in the clear water stands in general for success and luck.
  • swimming in murky or stormy water announces problems and failures.
  • with others swim points out to the fact that one needs advice and help in a matter.
  • the non-swimmer who sets in the water can point to a danger by contents of the unconscious if these break through in the consciousness.


It depends with the interpretation on whether one swims in the dream in clear or murky water. Clear water means success on the life by initiative or the swimming in the luck, murky the aimlessness with which one goes through the life. The swimming which walks along with the fear of the setting circumscribes the fear that one could get in the awake life at the work ‘in the swimming’. Water and swimming always deals something with the feelings of the dreaming. If he ‘swims’ by the air, this stands in connection with intellectual abilities. If he is in the dream a good swimmer, this his talent points to use an emotionally charged situation certainly. If the dreaming is a bad swimmer, this could refer to the fact that he must learn to handle more positively with his feelings. The dreams in which the swimming is felt as pleasant are valid as a token for the balance and relaxation of the dreaming as well as for his good self-esteem. If he feels especially happy because he is in the water, this picture admits an erotic interpretation in the farthest sense. If the dreaming is afraid, however, of the water or swimming, this is a symbol for his insecurity, his tensions and problems. With the dream interpretation must be also considered which kind of waters it concerns. Also colour and state of the water give explanation.


At the spiritual level swimming symbolises in the dream rising, maybe even a drowning in feelings. However, feelings are in the human existence only one aspect beside many other and may be neither undervalued nor be overrated.
