    I had a dream that there was this girl name Jessica and she wanted to kill me and then all of sudden she pushed me off a high diving Board and into the water while she did that I got scared and I came above water but then died???? I did not wake up at all until my aunt woke me up . When my aunt woke me up my friends were just sad and going to my funeral and they hated Jessica for what she did.

    Sometimes dream of swimming length of an Olympic sized pool, mostly indoors, but when I swim it it starts as zero entry, then a couple feet, then a meter, then 2 meters, then 3, then it’s 6 meters, next thing I know I’m in 100 ft of water and can’t see the bottom. No I’m not in Belgiums Nemo33. It’s not a scuba place, the floor of the pool though drops a little at a time, then doubling in depth every few yards or so of distance, one end to the other….so surreal. Anyone else see this kinda thing? I’ve been scanning so many YouTube videos and can’t for the life of me find anything CLOSE to what my mind has concocted in this recurring, haunting dream.

    Had a dream my old friend Sam and his brother picked me up in a van. We were driving parallel to a bay and Sam took a corner way too fast and we ended up driving over a cliff. “Sam was driving.”

    Sam somehow jumps out before we go over the cliff but his brother and I are still in the vehicle soaring over this bay and then come crashing into the water. I manage to make it out and notice that Sam’s brother Caleb is not in sight. I dive down a few feet and pull Caleb out of the water as Sam watches on. I get Caleb breathing again and pat him on the back and tell him, “Everything is alright, I got you”.

    The weird part about interpreting this dream as I haven’t seen these friends in over 7 years…and I was Sam’s friend not as much Caleb’s. Any thoughts?

    I dreamed I was sitting in an old fashioned boat, like the ones on the Nile river, where there is a boatman who is poling the boat.
    all of a sudden the boat starts to sink and I’m in the water, a crocodile is waiting for me and starts to eat me from the feet up, leaving my head, surrounded by red bubbles, and I’m screaming for help.

    I keep dreaming that I’m being saved by the same person. Twice I’ve dreamed that I was drowning and I was saved, and once I dreamed that I nearly got hit by a train and that same person keeps appearing in my dream to save me. What does this mean?

    I dreamt that my husband had drowned. Then once I can see his face above the water level. Later, I see that he is wearing green t-shirt & walking up the steps. His back is towards, me but he turns & gives me a smile and then continues walking up the steps.

    Ok so this is weird,
    In my dream my house is completely submerged inside but it’s sunny and fine outside. I start swimming to the door to let the water out when I see this random girl I’ve never seen before, and as I get to the door and open it, she hits the floor and I wake up… I’m so confused.

    I had a dream just yesterday night and in the dream all I remember the most vividly is me standing outside in the front of I guess what was my house and looking up to see a huge tidal wave coming and i rAn into the house and the wave crashed it and I wAs swept away and was being strangled by what looked like a blanket and was drowning. After that I’m not sure what happened that’s just about all I remember of the dream. What could this mean?

    I had this one dream that I’ll always remember, I was walking in town with a friend of mine (female) and my ex-fiancee, We came to a flooded part of town and i fell into the water and started drowning, my ex pulled me out but set me close to the water and I started drowning again, again he pulled me out, i was drowning again, FINALLY after that he picked me up and set me on a hill away from the water. He saved me 3 times in this dream and I have no idea what it means!
