    I had a dream I was going into the Ocean to meet Jesus. Either I am leading a man into the Ocean with me or I am the man I’m not sure. I tell him or I am told to leave my coat and shoes on the shore. It was night time and the Ocean floor felt very gritty on the bottoms of my feet. I went way out until I was neck deep. I couldn’t see in the water, but I wasn’t scared. At first it was calm but then my Husband says “Watch out behind you” I look behind me and there is a huge swell. I swim towards it and go up with it so it doesn’t crash down on me. I am then very cautious after that not to let one of these waves crash on top of me. Jesus never speaks he’s just there with us. I then decide to go back to the shore so I ride the waves back. I remember thinking ahead and saying to myself it might be rough before I get to the shore because the waves are crashing hard, but it never did get rough.

    I had a dream where we were at the beach. My family was there, and as it got later, the waves started to rise. At first we all left it and then it got really bad. Each time I saw the waves I got scared. I went into the small house only to find that the current that was pulling back was seriously strong. My sister, her bf, aunt and a man that I don’t know were all there. I held onto the door pane , and reached out for my sister’s hand as she was screaming and asking me to help them. I got a hold of her hand and started to pull them out. I had this strength that I could not explain, but somehow I kept thinking to myself that I can not let them die right in front of me. I got them out, but the waves only got bigger and bigger. Please anyone, help me define this dream!

    I my dream I am in a room with people and outside is the ocean, a very calm ocean yet I was afraid. I even told one of the people in the dream to move away from the water for fear that something might draw him into the deep, calm water. I also saw, farther away, a clean welcoming beach and I intended to go towards that area. Then I woke up. Thanks for the interpretation/analysis.

    I had a dream where I was standing in an empty room with sand on the floor looking into a rough ocean with HUGE waves I don’t get in but the water splashes me and scares me. The top part of the side walls are containing the water and cutting through it looks like a glass is containing the ocean. The weird thing is I have been to this same “beach” twice already. One about one month ago and the other one yesterday

    I dreamed I was on top of a mountain, and it started moving and took me to the ocean and back to land. I called on Jesus’ name and he sent Peter Pan and Tinkerbell to take me off the mountain.

    I had a dream that I was on a boat. I stepped out & was walking on the sea. It was calm.. the water was blue.. at that moment I thought to my self that it was impossible for me to walk on the sea, because I know only Jesus can walk on the sea. And I didn’t feel any fear when I was walking. Then suddenly I woke up.

    in my dream, my mom had an apartment on a cliff by a private cove beach that only she had access to and anyone who lived with her, visited. The apartment was a white cements look. kind of like the Greek homes you sometimes see on the side of an island on calendars. it was a sunny day, warm, and my mom and i had been in an argument over my boyfriend coming over (which in actuality is not an issue). my moms room in the apt. had a window that you can climb out of onto an intentionally built ledge to overlook the sea. my boyfriend and i went and sat on the ledge after the fight and smoked cigarettes. it was calm in that moment. and my mom was the tension. but eventually, my mom found us, and everything was still tense but not heated as far as the fight goes. My bf spoke up for himself respectfully and that calmed down the fight.

    I dreampt I was with a dear love who passed (6 years ago). It started in the snow and i was waiting for him, along with his brother to go home. I waited for him to get things done yet never saw him. He finally appeard and was late. He didn’t really want to leave with me when I told him it was time to leave. At this point, we were near the ocean. It was a most calming and beautiful scenery. In my dream, he was not dead. I was somewhat hurt by his actions/or lack of because he said he could not leave with me when I was ready to go. He was serious and firm. I was very disappointed and hurt that he did not (or could not) leave with me right away since his prior actions (during life) were always jumping at the first chance and opportunity we could be together. I woke up missing him.

    I dream of Huge gigantic waves crashing towards our house. I am inside and all I see from my windows is like a 50ft wave. Its so scary… happens quite often. I heard dreams like this can also mean sex deprived?

  • Peggy // Sep 19, 2009 at 8:36 am

    I dream very often about being near the ocean, but not being able to get to it. I want to have fun in it, but there is always something or someone preventing me from going. I wait for others to come with me, but we never get there.
