Dream symbol Walk over water


Jesus, trust, miracle, lightness, transcendence, belief in the impossible

The element water is loaded with one of the most meaningful symbolism in dream interpretation.

Gliding over the water in a boat is no problem and swimming we can easily cover greater distances in the water. Only physically, our body does not seem to have the gift of walking on water.

As we know, Jesus walked lightly on the water as if he were walking on the earth, according to the most famous book in the world, the Bible. His closest disciple, Peter, wanted to do the same, but after a few steps sank in the water, because the doubts were greater than his faith in the Great One who transcends everything and makes everything possible.

Otherwise only in legends and myths the laws of nature are broken by extraordinary beings, likewise in the dream world this can be possible, since in dreams neither space nor time exist. What could this dream want to convey to us now?

General dream interpretation

If someone wants to walk on the water, he must first overcome the natural laws of nature. Where at each step one foot after another would usually sink, one moves on with ease, which is usually reserved for water walkers. Everything can come true in a dream.

This dream symbol is interpreted holistically as a symbol of happiness. On the professional level, this dream clearly promises balance and success.

If someone walks on the water in a dream, he/she is also in for a good time in terms of partnership. To move vertically on the water without further aids probably borders on a miracle for a normal mortal and most likely prophesies that such will happen.

Everything unexpected seemingly impossible now becomes possible.

Especially for politically engaged persons this dream symbolizes success, the element water in this context represents the national population. Walking on water illustrates that the dreamer has the gift of leading the people and guiding them on right paths.

Psychological dream interpretation

Water is a life-giving elixir and also dangerous. Yet the symbol of walking conveys that you have already risen above danger, have overcome all obstacles and can devote yourself to joy and happiness in life. Possibly the dreamer feels able to undertake what the prospect was unthinkable or impossible in the past.

No obstruction or blockage, such as worries or fears, which could block the way or stop the dreamer, are in the immediate vicinity. In dream interpretation, water is always closely linked to the emotional world and the life of the soul.

If the dreamer sees himself walking on water, but after a few steps he sinks in it, this serves as an expression that doubts are plaguing the dreamer, causing him to sink. He does not trust his own abilities enough.

Spiritual dream interpretation

For spiritual dream interpretation, this dream of walking on water signals that one should always be open to miracles or let go of all constricting concepts that something is impossible. The dreamer is asked to trust his own feelings and not to be confused by the opinions of the masses.
