Dream symbol Ebb tide


low water level, retreating, seashore, lull, rhythm of life

Low tide is a term used to describe the receding water of the sea caused by the sinking of the sea level. The ebb tide behaves in the opposite direction to the flood tide, the rising water.

The river bottom is clearly revealed at low tide on the seashore or near the coast. In the North Sea, in the Wadden Sea, so-called "mudflat walks" are possible during low tide. Regionally, low tide differs not least due to the influence of the moon, the sun and the earth.

General dream interpretation

The low tide often appears as a dream image, when in the near future the dreamer will see again a familiar area, which he loves very much, will travel there.

If you are a spectator standing by the sea at the time of low tide, then this may symbolize an inheritance or represent some other kind of gain. Sometimes it is also a symbol of changing fortunes.

If the person is swimming or sailing on the sea in his sleep and sees the low tide from the boat, this sign indicates a stagnant life situation and nothing new can develop from this circumstance. Confidence is at the moment for the dreamer that the wind in the sails is blowing in the right direction.

Alternating ebb and flow in the sleeper's dream indicates a rather moody changeable luck.

Psychological dream interpretation

The psychoanalytical dream interpretation attaches to the low tide the symbol of TRANSITIVITY, according to the psychological dream interpretation the transitoriness and the eternal cycle of life, in coming and going are symbolized. According to the current circumstances of the person, the low tide can also stand for dissatisfaction as well as boredom. The dream reveals to the dreamer that there are more possibilities to be exploited in life and more action potential is available and concrete actions are required.

In the context of low tide and misfortune, the temporally recurring high tide can be held before the eyes of the affected person and give comfort, because it symbolizes the upward swing to the positive. In the state of happiness, however, this dream image occurs as a WARNING against apparent security, overconfidence or arrogance.

Sometimes the low tide can simply stand as an image of relaxation for the soul, a rest or breather in life.

In financial matters, the connection to the dream image low tide can also announce a lull . The emptiness in the dreamer's purse is symbolically interpreted as low tide. But after every down follows an up, so the financial situation will soon improve again and turn for the better.

Spiritual dream interpretation

Spiritually interpreted, the tides ebb and flow stand for the rhythm of life. The course of all things, the up and down is symbolized by it, as well as birth and death.
