The canals are man-made rivers, and therefore represent the intervention of man in nature. Canals also give structure and layout to large cities, so they represent structure and balance in your own life.
Channels can represent a sense of balance in our families and in relationships with others. This is especially evident if there was another person present in your dream of the canals. Are you paying enough attention to the people you love? Do you put one person ahead of others, even though that person may not always be that to you? Remember that family, or the people you think of as family, will always be in your life. Don’t put all your effort into a new relationship with someone if you don’t get the same attention in return. You must be able to maintain a good sense of balance between family and relationships.

The detailed interpretation of dreams
Dreams about canals can show something about balance in our lives. In the waking world, canals are a man-made structure placed alongside nature. The concrete channel is supposed to control the flow of water, something that is normally controlled naturally. The channel helps to find that perfect balance between nature and fabrication that is strange and alien to nature itself. Therefore dreams about canals are often about balance.
Balance is critical in channel dreams, especially if you yourself are struggling for balance or trying to avoid falling into the water. If this happens, or even if it doesn’t, your dream is trying to warn you of disharmony in your life. Look at all the areas of your life where you feel you could improve or where you feel you are not able to put enough effort into your projects.
Channels can also represent work and school. If there isn’t a good sense of balance between your personal life and your job or education, you’ll start to have a negative image of your successes. You may be dreaming of a channel to try to find this balance in your life, so try to think about what things are most important to you and how you could spend more time on them. Sometimes you need to be honest with your friends and family and remind them to focus on school. Find a healthy balance between work, school, sleep, and your other responsibilities.
Channels can also have to do with your own personal balance. You may feel that you have not been able to focus on yourself and your own powers of expression and creativity. Try taking some time off, going on vacation, or going somewhere quiet away from your hectic home life for a short time. This will bring balance back to your busy life and allow you to have emotional structure.
If, in your dream, you are floating in a canal on your back or in a boat, then it is a positive sign. You have found that perfect sense of balance between the important areas of your life and you are still able to focus on staying afloat and being you.
This dream is associated with the following scenarios in your life
- Work and school.
- Home and family life.
