Swimming to the shore and feeling uneasy

Reoccurring. At beach. The sea is so bad and choppy, dark sky. People are unaware of the danger. The water is tall and sharks are all in the water. I have to swim to shore from the ocean and have to stay close to the surface. I am afraid, but I have to go. I see the beach from the water. The people on a slight hill are on blankets watching the water. They are not leaving this danger. The water is almost to the buildings. I am on the beach too and can see the tall water with sharks all in.

This vision is highly ominous and should be considered a warning about getting involved in things outside of your concern. To be more specific, the stormy ocean which rises high above you and the others represents a scandalous, outrageous situation which may hurt your social interactions and, in turn, your career opportunities in the community at large. Additionally, the sharks in the water suggest that your involvement in this situation is an accident caused by your obliviousness to the facts of the matter. Getting to the beach at the end also points toward feelings of deep regret and remorse, possibly because you cannot undo what has already happened. If none of this has happened yet, it may be wise to keep your head low to avoid making any huge mistakes you cannot fix later.

Swimming under moonlight

Being on a beach at night, whether you are swimming underwater or skinny-dipping, can signify that you are lost in your thoughts in the actual world.

The bright, reflected image of yourself on the water mirrors your awareness that things are not going your way, yet you struggle to fix them. However, this agony will see its end as long as you acknowledge that you need other people's help.

Swimming in an outdoor pool of a building

The same dream I have every few years... I see a white oblong building which is a leisure center, containing an indoor and outdoor pool. When inside the building, I see that the indoor pool is busy, so I go to the outdoor pool (this turns to 3rd person viewing), and see myself floating about on a Lilo. Nothing else happens, but last night there was a man in the pool (a current work colleague of mine) who I was floating away from.

Dreaming of a large building that you recognize as a leisure center suggests you are confident in who you are as a person and understand both your strengths and weaknesses well. This may be the result of years of self-reflection or of a few pivotal events which have shaped you, making you the person you are today. Swimming in an outdoor pool indicates, however, that you do not feel challenged in your current environment. In fact, the lack of difficulty is not only cumbersome, it makes you question your position in life. If you feel this is related to your work situation, you may want to seek more responsibilities. If not, it may be high time to take up a new hobby and push yourself to the limit in something new and exciting.

A woman swimming with snakes

My dream was about seeing a woman swimming with snakes.

Seeing a woman swimming with snakes in a dream represents the possibility of a woman finding out personal information about you. You may know this person, she may even be one of your close acquaintances. The information she may have discovered would be sensitive, the kind you would rather not have been spread around to others.

Swimming with black snakes

My friend and I were swimming with a lot of large black snakes and we had our own pet snakes as well. Nothing bad was happening until the snakes started constricting around my friend and his snake. My friend passed out and I quickly dragged them out first killing the snakes around my friend and pulling them off, then doing the same with his snake. His snake was dead, but I I did not know if my friend was.

Swimming with snakes should be considered a serious warning that someone is plotting against you and your friend. Watching your friend being attacked by snakes later, then, is an obvious sign that he is in danger. Pulling the snakes off and killing them symbolically represents your attempts to save your friend and yourself. It could be very difficult, almost impossible even, to avoid the attacks of those who seek to harm you. However, that does not mean you should not try to persist. Any effort you can exert to protect yourself would be worth your time and energy in the long run.
