What does it mean to dream of swimming

Last Updated on 4 months by Alina Dreamer

As we have explained on some occasions, dreaming about an element can have a meaning or be a simple copy of the reality that our subconscious shows us. If, for example, you dream that you are swimming when it is a hobby that you love, or you have just swum, you have seen a movie about swimmers or anything around you is related to swimming, it is one of those dreams in which the meaning has little to do with the element.

If you haven’t had anything to do with swimming and you have dreamt about it, then you can read carefully the points in which we explain the different dreams and their meanings. This is important to clarify because many people label dream interpretations as false, when, in fact, they are a mistake in understanding or analysis. Not all dreams are endowed with significant meanings nor can we know them all, so you will have to do a memory exercise to remember all the possible details and find the context more similar to your dream in the following paragraphs.

Meanings of dreaming about swimming

Dreaming of swimming in calm sea

When you swim in calm seawater in your dreams, it’s because you’re going to be very successful in the professional world. This will allow you to improve your income and therefore, your quality of life. You will have to use this money with the head because it is true that we all like to give us whims, but it would also be convenient to save or invest this money so that in the long term we will be profitable. You do not have big worries, and as long as you follow our advice, you will be much happier both now and in the future.

Dreaming of swimming in fresh water

If what stands out about the water in which you swim is that it is bright and fresh, it means that all those problems that for months and even years have been tormenting you are going to disappear little by little. It doesn’t have to be anything serious, but it is something that you find uncomfortable and that you are willing to leave behind. All you have to do is keep acting according to logic, and you’ll see that the storm will start to clear up in a matter of days.

Dreaming of swimming in agitated sea

Dreaming that the force of the sea prevents you from swimming to the shore is because you will get into serious trouble from which it won’t be easy to get out. A third party probably causes some of these problems, although you will pay the consequences as the most. Please don’t get carried away by most of them, and when you don’t want to do something, don’t do it. It is effortless to give in to social pressure and find yourself in trouble that is not at all fair. If you want to reduce these situations, you know what you have to do, take out your personality and decide for yourself.

Dreaming of swimming in the middle of a sea

If you have dreamed that you were swimming in the middle of the sea with a big swell and without a lifeguard, you are going to suffer a lot in the next months. You will have quite negative news, and significant disorientation usually accompanies it. You will not know what to do, and you will be overwhelmed by events. If you are not strong enough, you will need a lot of support, because you will sink little by little and you may suffer from depression. The best thing you can do is to value yourself more and recognize all your effort, regardless of the outcome. Although many times we fight for something and don’t succeed, we will never know if the next time will be different. This is precisely why you should never lose hope and keep fighting.

Dreaming of swimming in shallow water

Swimming in shallow water symbolizes sadness and lack of motivation. It would be best if you had some stimulus or strength to make you move and get to the depths, where there are more opportunities. You are a person who tends to fear change, and this means staying where you are. This way of being does not allow you to move forward and makes you feel bad. You’re going to have an awful time if you don’t start changing your attitude right away.

Dreaming of not being able to swim

If in your dream you couldn’t swim no matter how hard you tried and you finally drowned, someone around you will suffer a misfortune that will affect you too. It can be an accident that severely damages your health, although it doesn’t have to be related to this issue because it can also be a sentimental failure or a project with bad results. Either way, this issue will spill over to you. Don’t let yourself be dragged into it and help that person as much as possible because if you also lose hope, you will both suffer more than you should.

Dreaming of drowning while swimming

When your dream focuses on drowning, it is because luck will not be on your side for the next few days or weeks. Avoid risking your money on gambling because you will lose everything you invest and don’t put your economy on the line. If you were thinking of applying for a raise or promotion, you’d better wait a little longer and do something that proves your worth, this way you’ll save yourself a refusal, and it will be your superiors who offer you the opportunities.

Dreaming of swimming and saving someone’s life

Saving someone’s life in your dreams because they were drowning means just the opposite of the previous case, you will have a period of luck that will even surprise you. Happiness will flood your life in all aspects, and you will have again that illusion to live and that smile that was so hidden. Now is your time, enjoy and do not stop smiling.

Dreaming of learning to swim

Learning to swim is interpreted in dreams as a significant step by the dreamer towards independence and maturity. If this is your case, you will experience a progressive change that will make you value reality differently and allow you to grow as a person. Sometimes it isn’t easy to realize what we have. Still, if we stop to think about it and analyze the situation of many other people, it will improve our empathy and generosity, which will also make you a new person. Best of all, we are talking about a natural change that you have decided to immerse yourself in.

Dreaming of swimming in clean water

If you are a lucky person and dream of swimming in clean water, you will soon be lucky enough to formalize your relationship a little more from a move to a marriage proposal or the news of a baby. Your relationship is undoubtedly the envy (healthy) of all your friends, because you are sincere and respectful, which makes you unique.

Dreaming of a swimming competition

Finally, if you were dreaming of participating in a swimming competition, it is because all that effort and dedication that seemed to be in vain will soon bear fruit. You will be rewarded by achieving the goals you had set from the beginning, and you will feel very proud of yourself, something that from time to time never comes wrong. Enjoy your well-deserved medals in life and don’t stop fighting for your dreams.

Conclusion of dreaming about swimming

As with the other dream elements, their meaning varies depending on the feelings, the time of life in which they appear, or even according to what you have done recently. All these variables are impossible to calculate, although in most cases our interpretations work correctly, so we encourage you to discover the meaning of your dreams and prepare for what is coming.
