    I dreamt I was standing on a bridge looking down onto a ship that ran parallel to the bridge. The ship was just a little bit below the clear and still water, and it was in perfect condition. I didn’t feel like the ship was sinking, but only slightly submerged under the water. Can anyone tell me what they think this means. I have a couple dreams that stand out that I feel would help me to have them interpreted, all to do with water. (3) thank you 🙂

    I dreamed that I was in a ship, I got off the ship to walk around and when I came back, the ship had sunk. I panicked because I had left all my belongings inside the ship and they had sunk with the ship. I went to the harbor and told a guy who was selling seafood in a shop that I would give him thirty dollars if he retrieved my belongings from the ocean.

    I had a dream recently that i was on a ship. On this ship I am meet a beautiful rich girl who I talk to. We talk about business ventures and all the fruits of life she enjoys with her wealth, the conversation is free flowing and I enjoy talking to her. I then get distracted by my mother giving out to me for talking to this woman and then I notice my girlfriend sitting next to me shaking her head. The next part I remember is walking through the ship with my younger brother and I’m defending my position of having an innocent chat with this woman, then my girlfriend tells me she was in the room below and could hear everything I was saying. I walk off at this point and go up two levels of stairs by myself, I am walking to the smoking area of the ship and I pass by a few tables of my old friends, mostly from school when I was younger, they just say hello but I dont stop for a chat, I feel dissapointed that we dont talk and I move on. When I get outside to the open deck of the ship we are arriving in the port which suprises me as I thought the journey was alot longer. Then all of a sudden I notice a ship falling down from up above us on the dock. It lands in front of our ship, straight away I think to run in and save my brother and girlfriend, but its too late, i’m up to my neck in water. There is a big panic and screaming, but I then have a feeling of relief come over me because we’re in the docks and rescue teams will be able to save them. Then I woke up! Can anyone explain this?
