Introduction of dream about water dream

Dream about water is connecting a man’s soul to the uttermost part of the earth. While drinking water from a running tap in your dream indicates calmness and peace. The spiritual meaning of ocean, river, lake can represent good or bad meanings. However, the biblical meaning portend a number of good symbols to Christian believers.

In fact, in my recent studies about the mystery of water, I came with the understand  that fetching water in the dream symbolizes hopes, revival and  healing. To corroborate my personal research, look at what the Bible says, Proverbs 5:15, Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.

The dream symbolism of water can include joy, protection, satisfaction and righteousness. For example, the flowing of living water is the existence of the Holy Spirit. When analyzing dreams about water, take into consideration the type of water formation you are surrounded by (river, ocean, lake, swimming pool etc), and each forms signifies different meanings.

This dream about water can have both negative and positive meanings. In some cases, the ocean dream may represent the glory of God. Alternatively, the appearance of ocean in your dream can also indicates marine powers.

Maybe your involvement in swimming in the ocean, river is frequent. Then such a dream is demonic. If you find yourself steering at the ocean in the spirit world, then it symbolizes your soul has been sold out to the water demons. To bath in the oceans in the spirit realm can indicates troubles and bondage.

There is a popular song in pidgin by Fela Anikulapo (late afrobeat singer in Nigeria). He says: ”Water e no get enemy.” That’s true. Water is life. Water doesn’t have enemy. The existence of man solely depends on water. All plants and animals lives on water to survive. If there was no water there would be no life on earth. Jesus said in Genesis 1, And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. When it comes to dream about water, it can mean a number of things.


In Biblical picture, water represent the symbol of the Holy Spirit. It can also represent the glory or power of God. Water heals, cleanses, energizes and purifies the souls. A person can live without eating food but a person cannot live without water. Please try it and give me the result. If your finding is true then that makes water very important to man. Dream about water is the most common and powerful dream symbols.

The nature of water is a big source of blessing to man. Water quenches our thirst for water. The sources of the water are given in Genesis 7:11 as “the fountains of the great deep” and the “windows of heaven.” Water is also symbolic of God’s blessing and spiritual refreshment and is used many times in the Bible (Ezekiel 47:1-12).

When there is rainfall, heaven releases its glory upon man and the earth.  If you read your bible very carefully, you will discover how water is important to our healing and restoration. Also in the Bible, God has also use water (flood) as a form of destruction during the era of Noah.

Calm water signifies rest. If you dream about clear and calm water, then consider that a good sign. This is because this kind of dream signifies happiness and inner peace. It’s also possible that you may be going through some challenges/battles in your life. But this dream is telling you that you’ll be able to solve these issues in your life so there’s really nothing to worry about.

Dream about yourself underwater, 

This means that your situation is tough and it shows the arrest of your destiny. Being underwater, it indicates a dedication of your soul/possession to the water spirit. A dream involve you walking underwater, is a warning sign that a sacrifice of your destiny. This type of dream can make things so difficult for you. When a child of God finds himself walking, swimming under river in the spirit world, it is an indication of the person prone to marital delay and poverty/suffering.

Water is derived from various sources. Rivers, lakes, seas, oceans and rain are known to be some of the main sources of water. Water is a colourless, odourless substance which is needed for domestic, agricultural as well as industrial use.

Every part of a man’s body contains water. The brain, eyes, kidney, liver, reproductive organs etc needs enough of water to function effectively. In the report of a doctor, he says, a continued lack of water in the body gives way for chronic illness.

One of the oldest nature on earth is water. This is evident in the book of Genesis 1:6, ”And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters”. The dream about water has a number of spiritual meanings.

The symbol of water is fully  extended to rainfall, rivers, oceans, lakes,. And the Bible makes us to understand that river has hidden power. In some communities, you will see so many people visiting the river to fetch water.

This is because the river is known to heal and cleanses all manners of sickness in the body (2 Kings 5:14). The Bible often uses water as symbolizing of faith, salvation, and provision. Water is essential to our physical living just as Jesus is essential to our spiritual living!

The dream about bathing with water can also be bad especially when a person is bathing.

Or maybe you found yourself bathing in the ocean, river. If this case falls within your dream category then it indicate a sign of spiritual imprisonment and demonic covenant. Think about the person bathing you. As long as a person is bathing you spiritually, it therefore means satanic exchange of virtue.

If you are a woman, this type of dream means an marine attack against your marriage. Perhaps you are a man, but believing God for financial breakthrough, if in your dream you are bathing in the ocean, then kindly run for deliverance. Because it means serious attack on your finances and career. This may place you in a state of stagnancy for long until you sort yourself out.

It is not unusual to dream about dirty water, especially when your ways are not pure before God. It could also indicates a symbol of pollution and disconnection from the presence of God. God is holy. The Bible says, without holiness, no man shall see the Lord.

The reason for seeing dirty water might be something is not right with you. Or your sin is the reason why your prayer go unanswered. Kindly check that sin that is giving you a serious concern. If you find yourself drinking water, it means sickness. This dream can also serve as a reminder that it’s about time that you eat healthy and keep your surrounding clean.

Recurring dream about seeing dirty house, dirty cloth, dirty shoes, dirty surrounding, it is a warning symbol that your destiny is being captured for evil. The moment you begin to see dirty materials, this can seriously affect the scope of your marriage, ministry, business and relationship with people. This dream also connotes troubles and it is a sign that the enemy is trying to attack you.

To see dirty things in your dream, can be the symbol of various complicated issues, risky situations and diseases. There could be breakthrough on the way, but the outcome of this dream will stop the blessing from reaching out to you. This is a sign of the enemy at work in your life. It is important to know if you are a dirty person in your waking life. Sometimes dirtiness can be resist God’s visitation and intervention. Think very well the areas you are not clean.

During the night, someone can easily fall into water, and a driver can mistakenly driver into a muddy area. Whatever might be your case, please know that falling into water in the dream can represent a number of negative meaning. Falling dream is a symbol of fear, loss of control, threat. Sometimes, the reason for falling into water can be as a result of spiritual blindness.

Your dream about falling into water may happen or not necessarily happen in real life, however it is still better to pray for the Holy Spirit to taking you out from any complicated situation.

You may dream where someone push you into a flowing river. Then it indicates a sign that a person is about to kill you or  bring you down. This type of dream is also telling you to resit or avoid bad advises or bad friends that may put your life at risk.  It is possible you may know this type of person in your waking life.

You need to ask God to empower you to deal with the enemy of your success. Alternatively, your dream about falling into water may just be telling you that you are not spiritual mature, firm in the word of God and which has made you to fall away from the grace of God.

If you see yourself falling into river frequently then it indicates your deep regret feelings about your problems. The regret can affect your peace in life, marriage and health in general. Additionally, it also symbolizes that you are operating on a curse that does not allow you to moving forward speedily.

Dream about deep water

Proverbs 18:4 
The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

To dream about deep water reveals the awesomeness of the glory of God. If in your dream you saw many fishes moving in the deep water, it symbolizes happiness and prosperity. Certain circumstances could force you to set your eyes on the deep water. This is not just ordinary. Your reason could be that you were trying to find out something.

Perhaps the Holy Spirit is using this dream to build your focus spirit and determination to succeed.  This dream can also portend liberation from worry, and or, help from outside source. The meaning extends to spiritual causes, such as, spiritual gift, divine revelation from above.

However, one of the spiritual meaning behind these dreams is about the capability of fulfilling your obligations and divine promises. The dream also reminds you of your responsibilities and eagerness to act on your decision. The deepness of the river water is distance covering many miles, so looking at the water indicates your journey in life is far but if you keep on serving God, the journey could be shorten and become achievable. It also shows that deep secret that bring success shall son unfold.

In water dream, there are more negative interpretations than good symbols. In some cases, if you woke up unhappy with your state of emotion, dreaming about looking at water can indicates troubles. If you are through with some problems, this dream tells you that there is going to more suffering and losses. Things may take a turn for the worse and would be beyond your control to fix.

Your situation is still the same and it seems everything is bad as the more you pray the more the attack. Because sometimes, dream about seeing water to some people, this can reveals a warning that their spirit has been deposited in the body of the water. While in the process of seeing the river, all of a sudden you are hearing from voices in the water, then it is a bad omen.

To swim in the deep water indicates a sign that you belong to the candidate of marine. This is one of the signs that you are possessing mermaid spirit. It also indicates  all kinds of terrible spirits are now gaining access into your life and destiny. Maybe your reason for swimming is for fun. No matter the circumstances behind it, it is still a bad omen for children of God.

If the water is dirty or murky, it can symbolize difficulties and spiritual dryness. If after you dive into the water, but unable to come out then it indicates impossibilities and near success syndrome on your part. It means you will make a mistake that you will deeply regret.

If you are in a relationship or marriage, but you keep seeing yourself in deep water, it means such affair influenced by marine demons. No doubt, it will surely scatter your reputation, marriage and long term plans.

Dream about holy water – spiritual meaning

Numbers 5:17-18 
And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water: And the priest shall set the woman before the Lord, and uncover the woman’s head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:

There is a spiritual meaning of holy water. Holy water is a sacred water sanctified by priests for the purpose of protection, deliverance, healing, breakthrough etc. It’s a spiritual water that cleanses sickness in the body based on faith. There is nothing bad if you dream about holding holy water. Because it represents power and virtue. When such dream appears in the midst of attacks, then it stands as a form of defense mechanism.

When you dream where you apply holy water on your head, hands, legs, then it indicates your desire to place a wall of protections around you. It is possible that the point of seeing holy water in your dream may be due to the fact that some demonic arrow is about to be fired at you. The causes could just be something bad is about to occur. Kindly your emotion behind this dream prayerfully, then after such discovery, it will guide you how to pray.

In the wake of this dream, you could meet a priest who could want to bless you. In many cases, the dream about sprinkle water on your body, it could indicates self-deliverance. Such dream can also reveals or tells you to start using any sanctified to pray.

If you follow the direction of this type of dream, it can lead to your breakthrough and testimony. If in your dream you see a person sprinkling holy water on you in the dream, that’s a bad omen. It portends danger coming. The person is a stranger and can the devil can use anybody face to perpetrate wickedness upon you.

Some dreams about holy waters can negatively opens more attacks into your life. First, you don’t know the source of the power behind it. Second, you don’t know the source of the water. Third, you don’t know the person spraying anointed water on you. In dreams like this, the devil can use it as an opportunity to steals and exchange one’s virtues.

Holy water is used for solving spiritual issues, but if you see a fake man of God trying to give you anointed water, if you take it then it means a strong tie between you and the occult powers behind the water. In the long run, it is likely to compound your problems, making your dream so difficult to fulfill.

Through this, you will be so submissive to all of his commands and advises. But if you reject the water, then it means that your spirit does like to accept any contaminated demonic materials. A real prophet of God will administer holy water on you in the waking, but when you dream you will see the confirmation of the water doing wonders in your life. It is also important not to go to a church for deliverance where pastors often touches one’s head. Not saying they are evils. Just to be on the safer side. God bless you.

Dream about drowning in water

Micah 7:8
Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.

Dreaming about drowning in water  actually  means falling from grace. It’s impossible to live a Christian life without trials and temptation. This dream indicates that your situation is suppressing your life. Being drawn in water can just be a reflection of your worries and pains of life.

You are always  afraid of being sick or fall into wrong people. This can also refer to having shifting away from the presence of God due to the long answer of your prayer requests. It represents that you must avoid going to a place where God didn’t assign you to go.

Some people finished dream about being drown in river, but after sometimes, such person may see him almost drawn into the water in his waking life. This type of dream is sending a signal not to stay close or swim in the river. Alternatively, this dream is telling not to allow the troubles of life to cause you to do evil.

The interpretation of this dream also depends on the details and circumstances involved. Drowning in clean or dirty water bring fear because the outlook indicates setbacks, failure, loss of status. To dream of drowning in river, muddy water, virtually affects every aspect of life. You may be faced with some hardships and the best way you can solve them would be to first overcome fear.

Jesus said, ‘If you knew the gift of God, and who is asking you for a drink, you would have asked of him, and he would have given you living water… Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life’ (John 4:7-14).

God is always working in the lives of Christians everyday. His agenda is to see mankind fruitful. On no account, does He wants us to remain in our dire situation. Unfortunately, It saddens the mind of the Holy Spirit to see His children fallen. The good news is that He is a kind God, once He sees us down, He will pick us up and dust them off.

But the truth is that, He will never forsake His faithful ones and with His mighty right hand He will hold you. He knows what you need, He knows what you’re going through, and He knows your pain. Commit to Him, continue to live by His Word, hold on to God’s promises in your heart and know that in all situations He will help you and with Him you will overcome.

Now you have been drawn in the water, but finding it hard to rescue yourself then it is a sign of disappointment or shows that you are being cursed not to receive help. If a woman dreams she is in the water, it indicates the she will quickly possess mermaid spirit which may come as a form of spirit husband to molest her in the dream. The number of women that dreamed about being drown in water is high, and always come across sexual dreams.

Your dream of being drown in a dirty water may be telling you that you have lost your power. Your dream could also be a warning sign, indicating that you have a chance of falling a victim to others’ betrayal, deception to win your heart. You must not easily trust people.

Dream about fish in the water (river) – Biblical spiritual meaning

Fish in the bible represent good symbols. First, it indicates faith, second, it symbolizes evangelism, third, it portends success in your endeavour. Fish dream is connected to possibilities of your goals.  It is one of the common dream symbol, despite all that, there are some bad dreams about fish.

I want to quickly look at the spiritual meaning of seeing live fish in the river. For example, you see fish moving in the water, it represent the number of souls you need to impact. This could be evangelism, your types of career involving impactation and teaching service.

Fishes are very nutritious animals to man. The Bible recorded the activities of fishermen during the time of Simon Peter (Luke 5). On the arrival of Jesus, the fishermen were able to catch so many fishes in the river. We didn’t forget the story of Jonah in the Bible. It was told that this man knew he has offended God, so for this purpose the men in the boat threw him into the water where big fish swallowed him for 3 days and 3 nights.

The symbol of fish is a symbol of Go YE into the world and preach the Gospel. If you are a man where you dream of seeing fish in the water, it means you are a great man. This type of dream should encourage you that you have a big dream that could translate riches to you. It indicates this is a good season of starting a career and investing in it.

Good news to the women folks! If you are a woman whether married or unmarried, but the gospel truth is that if you are seeing fish in the river (but not dead), it indicates fruitfulness and favour in your marriage.

Such a dream shows that you are going to constitute a source of blessing to your man. Of a truth, there are ”some” women that are bad luck to men (sorry for this please). They easily affects, bring down the glory of men. I pray, may that not be your portion, in the name of Jesus.

Having talked about live fishes. But if you also discover the fishes are dead, it is a bad omen. It represent failure and unprofitable works in the future. It indicates your efforts are not rewarding. Maybe you are in an organization for years where there is hardly ways for promotion.

A dead fishes in the dream signifies miscarriage, hopelessness and lack of impact. You are a public speaker, but you discover clients are running way from you. This means your power is gradually fading away. You need to pray and fast for the Holy Spirit redirect your steps.

If you dream where you catch no fishes foretells stress, struggle, disappointment, and hard times ahead. You should be concerned about putting God first over your career. Perhaps the job that you are doing right now is not assign by God. The type of person you married has shattered your dream plans to pieces. You suddenly become a person of no direction.

If you eat dead fish in your dream, it symbolizes dead plans. It signifies that you may not have the ability to finish your project or seeing your situation turning to blessings. If you found out other animals are eating up the fishes in the river, it represents loss of investment, loss of joy.

If you dive into the river to catch the fish, this indicates your passion for success, but the reason for your setback is because of some enemies behind your destiny. However, if you see fish in the river, or you see a mermaid spirit, then it is a signal that the marine powers are after you. It is your responsibility to break any evil attachment between you and the marine witchcraft Please pray well.


DREAM ABOUT FLYING OVER WATER – Biblical dream meaning

Flying in the dream is bad, but flying over water is highly demonic. Being around water makes you a friend of the water. For example, when a bird (hawk) flying over water, it is possible that such bird is hungry and its looking for a fish to hawk. You can’t be flying over water and escape the attack from the water spirit.

Whether you are a man or woman who keep flying across water, indicates that your quick action for deliverance. To fly across water shows that your marriage will suffer peace, joy and happiness. To singles, it shows your impossibility to get married. However, when you eventually married, these demons will make sure you ended up with the wrong person.

Until you deal with dream about flying through deliverance, some of your present problems will never go. This generation of Christian believes flying over water is good. They are actually deceiving themselves and devil has really subscribed to their ignorance. There are so many reasons why these types of dreams are occurring depending on your foundation.

Also in the spiritual world, this can bring about disgrace, rejection, humiliation and difficulties. A situation where person has overwork himself or herself in the spirit realm. So when such person woke up, he might have lost his virtues and other important things such as marriage, finance, visa, concentration etc.

No human being is ever thinking of taking flying as a means of transportation in the waking life. No matter how your belief may view it to be good, this is spiritually bad. Failure to swallow the truth, the near attack may start as a form of lust, anger and unforgiveness. If you are a woman dreaming about flying with a stranger, it suggests you may leave your husband and marry another richer man.

Dreaming about flying over the muddy water alerts you that you should handle your private affairs carefully because your opponent is paying close attention to you and waiting to see your tears. If you are ready to take an examination, ready to marry, or ready to go for any interview, dreaming about flying over water but falling down indicates the spirit of thou shall not excel.

This is a perfect example that the bad spirit of failure at the edge of breakthrough in your root is at work in you. Please, it is now time to rebuke the curse and withdraw your virtues from the water.

How do you feel when you are having dream about flying over river. The dream, showing this incident may instantly instigate fear in your mind. The fear may interpret sorrow and insecurity. However, most people that experienced this types of dream always having issues in getting what they wanted. When the dream is frequent, it can also indicate near death and severe illness.

If you dream that you and a person are flying abroad but passed many deep sea, it clearly embargo on your dreams. If truly you have a desire to travel abroad, it shows the spirit of water are aware of it and which make it impossible for you to step ahead. It could also refer to something that you have been waiting for for a very long time to happen but withhold by marine wickedness.

If your flying over ocean, river, lakes etc is as a result of your recent visit to beach. Then this still portend bad omen. Water is a strong spirit. In that case, you may having early symptoms such as promise and fail, miserable life, homeless, difficulty to get married.

In your waking life you are doing great things, and for that purpose you feels this article is rubbish. You may even be the same person that will come to this site looking for interpretation that will suit your expectation. Today’s Christians are just too comfortable with the state of their ignorance. That’s why the enemy is killing so many people’s hopes and dreams . May God help us, in Jesus name.

Dream about drinking water – Biblical meaning

I will not stop taking calls about dreams, but the most frequent dream that flooded my phone on a particular day was dreams involving drinking water. I can now see the children of God actually wants to know the true interpretation of drinking water as a born again Christian.

Some dreams about drinking water can be good, while the larger part is bad. Let me quickly Bible passage from the book of John 4:14 , But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. Here the bible gives us an understanding of a person who is thirsty of water but later found water to drink is a true reflection of good dream symbol.

One of the purposes of drinking water is to quench thirst. I remember a friend of mine who says a person thirsty of water doesn’t care if the water is clean or not clean, but as long as the water is safe for drinking, then consider him drinking it.

Drinking clean water is a symbol of happiness. It can also indicates satisfaction and peace of mind. To drink water in spirit can also connote freedom from hunger. This can translates to favour and healing. In this case, if your dream involves drinking water from a running tap, it is considered a beautiful dream. This brings calmness and peace.

The dream came as a result of troubles, restlessness experienced in your waking life. Please note that not all dreams about water is bad. Maybe it is time for you to get baptize by water immersion. In a situation where you see your pastor immersed you in water, then it indicates a new birth. During the process of water baptism(John 3:5), you may have water running through your mouth.

Perhaps sickness is troubling your health in your waking life, so dreaming about drinking clean can represent your desire for quick healing and sound mind. Clean water is connected to a symbol of righteousness, repentance, revival, rebirth.

If you go to a running tap and drink water then it shows healing of virtues and power of God is possessing your spirit. Maybe you just need a person that will draw your love back to Christ fully without any form of backslidden. Once the water is clean be rest assured is good. Please note. The moment you woke from this dream happy then it indicates to be a good symbol.

Drinking water from a tap, drinking clean water from the river, drinking rain water is an indication of connecting your faith to the socket of the power of God. If you are currently working on your projects, this dream may be adding to your wisdom and knowledge to achieve the assignment. Generally, drinking a clean water is good, but the interpretation also depends on the details of it.

However, there are certain spirit that change the interpretation to a completely opposite meaning. Therefore, we must try to remember all the details that are seen during the dream. Moreover, you should pay attention to the feelings generated after your personal encounter of drinking water in the dream.  On the contrary, if you feel bad after it, then it indicates poisons. Its true that the majority of people are being affected by the negative side of the dream.

For a woman, the dream about drinking water means that she will start to experience moving sensation in the body. This feeling will make her not to be comfortable with any man, and she will not have the chance to enjoy the good side of her relationship/marriage. It may happen that she will be connected with this man not only by love, but also by financial motives.

For people who are married, drinking water can affects your marriage big time. This sense is that, it will create an atmosphere for sickness and fruitlessness and that can  halter both feelings. To dream about drinking water can be used by enemies to capture your spirit being. As a minister, if you see yourself drinking water is an indication of a person trying to quench your power.

You may be wondering why you have lost the power, the grace to bind and cast etc. This alone can cause serious division, rebel and low turn out of members. In some cases, the attack may be coming from among the ministers who are trying to overthrow your position as the head. Be vigilant please.

If you see yourself in a state of depression in your waking life, then your dream about drinking dirty water as a priest may be telling you of the escape of your anointing. This may be happening to you because of power tussle. The dream could happen due to wrong location of the church.

Also, pay more attention to the condition of your mind, is it telling you that your ministers are actually influencing this types of dreams or the devil himself. Usually the dreams, in which you see drank a full cup of water, portend illness, unexpected news and witchcraft initiation If in a dream someone gave you water to drink, it can be a tactic of your enemy to harm you.

As a Christian, you dream of drinking salt water, this usually chronic affliction in the highest order. It can also portend danger and disaffection. To drink salt water disorganizes your emotion. It could also refer to a past mistake which could have some serious consequences to your present life situation. In other words, such a dream represents slow memory progressing to forgetfulness of some important things.



Jesus walking on water is one of the miracles of Jesus Christ. In the book of Matthew 14:22-31, Peter walked on the water towards Jesus, but he became afraid and began to sink, so Jesus rescued him. In last verse, the Holy Spirit said, And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

It takes powerful faith ever in this world for a person to wake up from sleep and beat up his chest that he wants to walk through water and stand upon it. Well, I have never seen a person walking on water in my present world. Although Jesus Christ said greater works are you going to perform.

That’s the biblical stand upon the introduction about a person walking on water in the dream. Let’s start when you see a person walking in the river, it shows that you should have strong faithful in taking some risky decisions. In Hebrews 11:6, the Bible says it’s impossible to please God without faith. By seeing yourself or a person walking or standing on water shows the reason to activate or appropriate the blessings and provisions of Christ made available to you in the Gospel.

In most times, you just have to try to take a step in life before you find something that makes you happy. Do you have a beautiful talents, and such talents has never worked on? Are you a fan of  a person who is prone of procrastination and doubts?

The dream about a person walking on water can symbolizes you stand firm in your goals and let me know you through it. If you have encountered any threat or fear of you walking on water, this is an indication of terrible forces of witchcraft trying to close the doors of your favour.

For example, the Bible has demonstrated that before a person can come out from the shell of stagnancy, the findings showed that someone must put faith and believe in action. To walk on water is good, if after the dream you are not fearful, terrified. But if you are sensing danger , then walking on water in the dream can signifies the point of the enemy trying to swallow your virtues.

When a person stands or walks on water, if care is not taking, the person will sink. The same happens to an inexperienced person who doesn’t know how to swim. Once you walk on water then it portends the spiritual bondage and imprisonment. It may not allow you to be noticed again. Whenever you walk on water in the dream, please study your feelings towards the theme.

If you find yourself floating on water in your dream then this might indicates death, or a possible terrible tragedy. On the other hand, if a person is trying to rescue you, then it may portend great recovery, and stability of your blessings.

However, there are those who remember about  walking on water and associate it with temptation and loss of properties , and others believe that dreaming about standing or sitting on water is a sign of full relaxation from the trouble of life. If you dream of waves, restless water, it portends disturbance and trouble. It is a warning sign of demonic attack.

Dream about washing clothes with water

A person who loves washing cloth is a clean person. Washing clothes symbolizes purification. Cloth is associated with the body. As you are washing your clothes, at the same time, you are trying to eliminate some bad characters. While in the areas of clothes, it indicates  trying to wash out all the evil attacks, evil works that have been done on your garment. The reason you found yourself washing your clothes in the dream, might just because of a situation where someone wore your cloth without your knowledge.

It could be sending you a signal that you stop spreading your clothe outside especially at night. To find yourself washing your clothes with water and soap, since cloth is a symbol of glory (identity), this could be a change of friends, a change of relationship. Alternatively, it could also means you are about to walking more close to God due to your past life. To wash clothes more frequently in your dream could indicates the presence of new beginning, new hope, new ideas.

If you are a man, and you dream of washing clothes such as jeans, polo, etc, this indicates your preparedness to attend an event. If you are happy while washing, this can indicates breakthrough and sense of social connection with an opposite sex.

If you are a married woman, this indicates your ability to impress your husband with your beauty. If you are single woman, this type of dream might be telling you of new opportunity that may bring joy to you is on its way.

For many people, washing their clothes might be one of their daily habit. While some takes it as a big stress as they look for dry cleaner to take over the whole responsibility of washing. If you have wore some clothes which have piled up in your wardrobe, this dream tells you to start washing them one after the other. If you find out as a woman you don’t like washing clothes let alone your husband, the dream, however, tells you to start inculcating the habit of cleanliness.

You may find some people are beautiful on their clothes, but inwardly, their character needs spiritual cleansing. Washing clothes only with water will not remove the dirt thoroughly, but if you apply the use of soap, every dirty associated or glued on that cloth will disappear. The same things applies to some people’s nasty attitude, deceptive spirit. Until they wash their character, this type of dream will keep resurfacing, perhaps their case requires the helps of a man of God for deliverance.

Maybe in your waking life, people are complaining that you stinks or smell every time they move close to you. Perhaps there is bad odour oozing from your body, armpit etc. Then having recurring dream about washing your clothes with water means you needs to do thorough examination of yourself – your relationship with people, the ways you eat, and other funny things.

To dream of washing your husband’s cloth indicates love. There is no big deal or insult when you find yourself washing your hubby’s clothes. In fact, it is part of your responsibility to do that. The appearance of such dream influences you to wash his clothes. Honestly, I have seen some women who often wash their husband’s clothes and receives rewarding result through sex!

If, as a man, you dream of washing your wife’s underwear, indicates your wife needs your sexual attention. Kindly respond to her and atleast, be more romantic so as to spice up your marriage for good. The fact that you are washing her clothes does not make you her slave neither will it reduce your value before her. It’s just a simple way to make her happy.

Despite the washing of your clothes with water in dream , you still find out its not clean, it means that there is a stubborn spirit which has refuse to go. When such dream happens, it indicates that you need to examine what’s that spirit in you that is hindering your beauty or blessing. You can’t be taking your time and be washing clothes and yet is not clean. In this case, Be mindful of the kind of people you keep or disclose your success they might want to tarnish your reputation.



If you are scared of water, then it indicates you have phobia for water. And when a person is scared or afraid of looking at river flowing, it appears as if the river will drown him into the water. But generally, dream of being water means river is your enemy, finding yourself in any sweeping pool might just put your life in death. While others loves to catch adventure, you are afraid of it then this portend a serious spiritual problems.

To make it clean, it means you belongs to the marine spirit. In this case, if after you dream of water, and you follow a friend to beach then as you wanted to play around with the wave of an ocean, it hurriedly magnets you where your head is only seen floating on top of the water, then it indicates your act of disobedience to the voice of God.

To be afraid of water introduces you to hardship and difficulty in getting emotion stability. If you are thinking of going to the river, please, this is not the right time. Maybe some other times. You may know if the water demons are actually looking for a soul to use as a form of sacrifice. There are many souls that have been wasted as a result of this dream attack.

A lot of virtues are in the water. When your spiritual eyes are opened, you will understand the spirit behind this article. When you receive meaning to your dreams, it is now left for you to decide the next coarse of action. Stop imagining the body of water or the wave splitting out water. Be careful and be prayerful.

Dream about carrying water – Biblical meaning

If after fetching your water from a running tap, you saw yourself carrying a bucket of water whether on your head, or in your hands, then it symbolizes good sign. You have actually fetched your blessings from the tap or well of prosperity and you are taking it home. It represent happiness in the long run. To carry your water in the dream means the reward of your labour.

What’s inside the bucket may not necessarily be water ordinary, but a water of healing, a water of sanctification etc. Then it becomes a big problem when after fetching the water, someone is trying to help you carry the water, this is not help, it means the attack of devourer.

Someone is trying to steal from your sweat. If you are pregnant woman, it means the loss of your baby in the womb. And if you are a single woman, please be very careful as this dream indicates your girlfriend is using your star to shine. May God help us in the days of adversity.

If you see yourself carrying water and someone intercepted you on the way, then this represent strongman of delay. Perhaps someone is sick. If such dream is true, this kind of dream means the plans of the enemy to deprive of the person of his healing.

If the strange person takes the water on your head, this can indicate that a loss of blessing. If you discover the person is known, then there is a 80% chances that such person may want to destroy you. Always pray for God to open your eyes.

In conclusion, dreams about water has a direct impact to the situation you are facing in your life.  It is very important to take all the biblical and spiritual meaning of water dream. If you follow what the spirit of the Lord is speaking to you through this article, you will never be ignorant of any circumstances. Many people have had dream of experiences involving water, ocean, river, etc, unfortunately, their late discovery of such a timing revelation has kicked them to the wrong side of life. All I am saying is that, you should study your dreams about water through your emotion as they portend bad or good symbols. If you want to write me, send it to my YouTube.

  1. I had an very interesting dream about an big eagle poring big drops of water over me..
    Not sure what the meaning is..

  2. I had a dream I was working, then suddenly it was like I was being a part of an active tsunami with many other people and we were holding on to this bridge. I could breathe in the water fine, I was calm, there was no struggle or panic and I was there holding onto this bridge calmly waiting for the water to die down.And then the wave did. What does this mean?
