What does it mean to dream of the ocean?
When one dreams of the mighty ocean, it is full of emotions that are deep and strong like the tides.
Dreaming of water, but more particularly the ocean, is one of the most common symbols that humans have more often. This is because we are mainly made of water and the strongest containment of this element is the Ocean. There is nothing more beautiful and intense, as well as potentially terrifying, than this gigantic body of water.
In this dream you may have…
- …fallen from a boat into the ocean with the feeling of drowning symbolizing a metaphorical drowning in all the emotions of your life.

The detailed meaning of the dream…
For Men: Men are typically challenged when it comes to feeling or being comfortable with expressing emotions. Therefore, they are most likely to have to push through these types of dreams, simply because they have no other way out. When this happens, the man must become one with the problem at hand so that he can stop drowning in the Ocean of inverted emotions. Expression, of any kind, is going to help…preferably productive expression.
For women: Women are, in general, intuitive creatures and although it is not so difficult for them to express their emotions, they get just as caught up in them when things go wrong. Usually this is the result of doing too much and therefore they need to be careful to manage their emotions in a constructive way that makes their needs vocalized and not internalized.
For everyone: Dreaming of being at sea or stranded in an ocean indicates that you feel lost with your emotions or that you are not on land. This may indicate that you need to have a more solid foundation in your life. When you have this kind of dreams it can also indicate that your wishes are out of reality in waking life.
