Dream symbol Waterfall


natural spectacle, emotions, expression, femininity, spill over

A waterfall somewhere hidden in the jungle offers a spectacular sight and is a remarkable natural spectacle. It belongs to the part of a river where the water at one point jumps down from an impressive height into a free fall. This vast amount of water, flowing down with a loud thunder, gives a seemingly insignificant position to the small human being. A force of nature that can be admired with vivid humility.

Supposedly, the highest waterfalls occur in Venezuela and in South Africa, with a height of around 980 meters. Famous waterfalls such as Niagara Falls are small in comparison, with a drop of 58 meters, and even in Zimbabwe the famous Victoria Falls have a height of only 120 meters.

This immense power and dynamics of the water element is more than impressive. Even if behind this enormous amount of water there is a strong movement and energy in connection, this rushing sound seems to bring about calmness and silence in us, to trigger something soothing in us.

General dream interpretation

The general dream interpretation sees the "waterfall" as a symbol for the expression of feelings and in dream interpretation it is a symbol for surges of emotions. These can feel liberating or threatening to the dreamer, which depends on how strong the control over one's own emotional world is and how consciously the person deals with them. A dreamed waterfall could also reflect that one wants to express one's emotions more or let them flow freely without holding anything back. But how easy or difficult this endeavor is depends on the individual personality.

Generally speaking, on the dream level, the waterfall can also be a symbol of an orgasm that the sleeping person wants to indulge in.

The waterfall as a dream symbol also serves to indicate that good career opportunities will open up in the future through an influential person, or that financial gain is in the offing. In addition, a waterfall illustrates that a special wish will come true. On the other hand, this dream image also refers to the warning of becoming the subject of gossip at an event where he is invited.

Another point of view of the general dream interpretation proves with the waterfall an imminent love disappointment . Possibly the dreamer waited too long with a decision and beautiful speeches alone were not enough for the partner. People who "talk like a waterfall" is a well-known popular expression, which seems to apply to the dreamer herewith. But everything in life is for learning and nothing is lost or wasted. Be ready to bear the consequences for your actions.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychological dream analysis, the waterfall symbolizes the overflowing emotions of the dreamer, who may have accumulated a considerable abundance of emotions that soon threaten to come out like a waterfall. It may refer to a repressed feeling that has reached a tremendous extent and thunders to the surface of consciousness with enormous force.

This dream image of the waterfall reminds the person in question, before a violent emotional chaos occurs, to take the time and rest to find out the origin of this intensity. What is overwhelming the person in question at the moment?

Spiritual dream interpretation

The dreamed waterfall stands for the force of nature and its immense power and, according to the spiritual view, reflects the symbol of the spiritual power under whose protection the dreamer seems to be.
