Beginning, life & energy.
Shows relation with mother The sea (water – also the ocean) is a common symbol for the mother. If in a dream wave breaks over you or you are moving into the depth, this dream denotes that you are maybe restrained by your mother. But if you are riding on the waves quietly or swimming in the warm sea, this means a perfect relationship with mother.
Water is initial and primary element on earth and together with wind, which stand for energy, they refer to beginning of human being. So this combination refers to our parents and likely more to mother then to father.
