I find myself driving down an ocean front highway. The ocean to my left with a very wide beach.
It always took us about 5-10 minutes to walk from the road to the waterline.
Today though, the shoreline seems further out. The sky is gray and the wind is unusually blowing to the east. Almost as if the air and water are being sucked out to the ocean.
I continue driving for a while, when the direction of the air shifts and seems to be coming from the east again – but much stronger. I park the car and get out to check things out.
Way out there is a haze. It’s like a cloud hovering over the waves, so low that I cannot see the horizon. That’s when I realize that it is not a cloud! I could not see it for what it was because it is truly unbelievable. The haze is actually the crest of the wave, but more then 80′-100′ high!!
I jump back into the car and drive off. I drive south looking for the next turn off. I fly thru that turn and finally am heading away from the wave. Driving as fast as I can, the wave continues gaining on me. I’m doing 100mph and that wave is catching up as if I was standing still.
The wave is on my tail & I can no longer see the top of the wave on my rearview mirrors. Water splashing around me and that wave is now right behind me.
I know! The dreams always end this way with the wave gaining on me but never encompassing me. Now to try and understand the dream.
According to the dream ‘dictionaries’ Tidal Waves have to do with emotions. With my ability OR inability to deal with them. It symbolizes emotions not expressed or “bottled up” but also the tidal wave symbolizes the “clearing away of old beliefs.” To dream of being caught up in a tidal wave, signifies “the strength of your emotions.”
The dream is of several types. It is a Recurring Dream and a Nightmare Type and is an expression of “Your perception of the world, health, natural disasters, criticism about politics, finances, crime in the streets and your inability to control such events may sometimes lead to nightmares.”
Yes, I do have worries, preoccupations with the state of our economy and the concern of where our world is going to be in the next few years.
I also can’t help but to think that the dream is also a Prophetic Type of dream.
