Eyes of The Earth – Lakes: Dream Meaning and Interpretation

While walking through the woods of a beautiful mountain, you finally break out into the open. Right in front of your very eyes, you see a mesmerizing, crystal clear lake, shimmering in the spring sun. You descend toward it to see it better and to take a swim if possible. As you are coming closer and closer to it, the inexplicable beauty and perfection of Mother Nature overwhelm you. Just as you bend down to touch the lake’s surface, you wake up. Seeing a lake in your dream symbolizes life, because of its steady flow and calmness which represent our future.

As well as when every other body of water appears in a dream, the lake also symbolizes our emotional world and our subconscious self. The lake, like our unconscious mind, has an immense depth which makes it unable to be explored, and it is always hidden from the view of others, which enables its perfect preservation. Anything that happens in or around the lake in your dream, is connected to various aspects of your personality and it is revealing the nature of your emotional worries and problems. Also consider the size of the lake that you see and the amount of movement that happens within it, for clues as to what sort of suppressed emotions are coming to your awareness.

If you see a clear lake, it means that you will experience much happiness and joy, as well as an abundance of health and wealth. If the lake is muddy, it suggests serious health issues and much turbulence and dissatisfaction with life.

Either way, dreams of the lake represent your connection to the feminine and intuitive aspect of yourself – your innermost feelings, thoughts, fantasies, and desires. Scroll below to find the dream interpretation that best describes the dream that you had. Hopefully, you will find the answers that you’ve been searching for.

Dreaming about the clear/muddy lake

If you dreamed about a muddy lake, it means that emotional turbulences are on the horizon. Relationship with your significant other might be facing difficulties because there is a huge chance that unpredicted changes appeared in your partner’s behavior to the point of not recognizing them. In some moments you feel like you’re talking to a stranger instead of the person with whom you’ve shared a huge amount of time. For some time, you will try to ignore the signals that something’s wrong and you will do your best to fix every issue that comes up. Face these difficulties and openly talk to them to find the core reason for their strange behavior. If their presence in your life doesn’t make you happy, feel free to let go. You will be better off alone, than in a one-way relationship.

Whatever happens, won’t be anything that you won’t be able to overcome. Take all the courage you have to try. It is better to try and fail than never attempting to reach out for your dreams.

You will lend your hand to them because it is very important to you to find closure with people you care about or used to care about.

If you dreamed about fishing in the lake, it implies various disappointments that wait for you in the near future. Someone or something failed your expectations or even betrayed you, on the extreme end. You’ve probably invested so much time and energy into them, that you feel a huge void in your heart. Look at this situation as a valuable life lesson and remember that no one is worthy of your complete sacrifice. We are all human and mistakes are in our nature. Don’t take this personally, because you’ve done nothing wrong.

Dreaming about drowning in a lake

If you dreamed about drowning in a lake, it symbolizes illness, loss, and deep sadness. In some way, you will experience these feelings unexpectedly, but you should know that it doesn’t have to come from some extreme situation like death or the loss of your loved ones. It could be a trivial situation that will trigger an outburst of these dark and intense emotions. The purpose of this in your life is the evolvement and development of your soul. Through these emotions, you will be able to transmute negative energy into powerful fuel for your future. Be careful not to fall into the trap of despair and helplessness, because this experience has an extremely important role in the complete transformation of your personality. Everything will be okay, just make sure not to avoid their uncomfortable feelings. Sit with them and allow them to leave your body for good.

If you dreamed about someone else drowning in a lake, it means that someone will ask you for help in the near future. It will be someone who severely hurt you in the past, possibly someone you’ve erased from your life for good. Despite these negative associations, don’t refuse to help. This is an opportunity, perfectly disguised as a challenge, that has a sole purpose – to transform the anger and disgust you still hold toward them. All this happens because the time has come for you to release accumulated negative energy over a significant amount of time, in order to free yourself from the burdens of guilt, shame, and unforgiveness. Let them go for good from your memory and taste the lightness of love and forgiveness.
