  1. I started dreaming about water when i went back to school, so instead of emotions i always associated it with knowledge. I had a great dream last night that I fell off my board but was still carried by the wave in the tube part and it never came crashing in on me. I was concerned that I would crash into the rocks at the bottom but it never happened. This was after a particularly challenging but fascinating class.

  2. I have recurring dreams about ocean waves and other bodies of water. In the past, I would be on shore where tidal waves would come and sweep over me. I would hold onto a structure like a fence and hold my breath until the wave would pass. I always interepretted this as feeling overwhelmed by my emotions. Last night I had a dream that I was actually out in the ocean trying to catch the waves with a boogie board but I kept missing the waves. It was a similiar feeling I get when I’m trying to surf and I’m not catching the wave because I haven’t figured out how to paddle hard enough or don’t pop up at the wright time. The other difference with this dream was that the waves didn’t feel like a threat to me. It also was dark outside, most likely due to it being a cloudy day like it was going to storm. I’m thinking that missing the waves may mean that I have a desire to get in touch with my emotions but I’m having trouble doing it.
