Flowing River Dream Meaning – What Does a Calm River Mean?

Flowing river dream meaning- what does it mean if you dream about a calm river? In dreams, rivers symbolize the flow of life – your life. The type of water in the river determines the quality of your life at the time you have the dream. That’s because water in dreams symbolizes emotion. Watch the video below to learn more about the meaning of rivers in dreams:

For example, if you dreamt about this river, it would mean that at this time, your life feels calm and peaceful, with little everyday issues to deal with to keep life interesting (the surface ripples). A river of this type in your dreams would also likely point to feelings of prosperity and even fertility, since rivers teem with life – fish, seaweed, and nutrients. Rivers can also denote a feeling of contentment with being part of a community, since people live on rivers and towns sprout up along rivers.
