What Does It Mean When You Dream about Jumping into Water

What does it mean when you dream about jumping into water? A jumping into water dream can be one of three types. Therefore, you may want to know about: 1. Jumping into Pool Dream Meaning, 2. Jumping into Deep Water Dream, or 3. Jumping into Water from Great Heights Dream.

How to Find the MEANING OF your JUMPING into WATER DREAM that Applies to Your Specific Life

It helps to know how to interpret your own dreams. That’s because dream meanings cannot reveal the exact meaning of your specific dream, since your dream is specifically about you and your life. Dream dictionaries can only give you a general dream symbol meaning. Therefore, I invite you to download my free 3-Step Creative Dream Interpretation Checklist.

Hi Carol. I had 2 water dreams last night. The first was of me diving into a swimming pool and swimming all the way to the other end without using my hands. One of the people in the pool also congratulated me on a nice dive and swim. I also stayed under the water the whole time holding my breath as I swam across to the other side of the pool.

The second water dream was of me standing at a high cliff which looked more like a waterfall to me in the dream. I was high high up. I remember 2 people jumped before me, then it was my turn. I felt hesitation but I decided to jump anyway. I enjoyed it. I remember when i was about to hit the water there were rocks near me but I managed to splash safely in between the rocks. The water was not very deep but the height I jumped was very high. I would never do that in real life. Why did I jump?

I dreamt in a plane so it was about to crush so we were advised to take a parachute to jump into the sea . So by the time I jumped my parachute almost went to the seashore but the sea seemed to get big so I ended up in the sea then I swim to the seashore . Can u explain my dream please

    Carol Chapman - February 7, 2022

    To begin, often the sea represents emotional depths in a dream. If this were my dream, I would wonder if I, during my waking life before having the dream, I had been too much “in my head” (the sky often symbolizes thoughts) and the need to address emotions (water) and deeper issues (the sea is so deep). The shore symbolizes practical matter, being “down to earth.” Therefore, if it were my dream, I’d thing that I would benefit from being more practical and from honoring what is important to me in my depths.

I dream jumping in lake deep water then i alrdy go down deep water suddey i open my eyes then i look into up there i try to swimming go up .then i saw one person whitr people help me to danger so i can climb up to top.he help me to get up .then i survive .

    Carol Chapman - February 7, 2022

    Lovely. Since dreams often make comments about our waking life, did you take on a deep emotional risk (jumping into the deep water)? If it was my dream, I’ve feel encouraged that I could undertake this risk. Often things seem so scary ahead of time. Then, you find out you can do it, that you have inner resources (the dream person who helped up get up).

I recently had a dream. Its a bit hazy but the parts and the way I felt I remember are still somewhat clear. I was at the top edge of this like semi-high damp type of wall that you would normally see if you were passing a big long lake while driving In the highway. It felt like I was in backyard though, like some type of creek type of setting and I was there with my sister and i felt like she was telling me she was gonna try and jump or thinking about it etc and i could feel like i didnt want her to do it and all of a sudden she just jumps and I jumped right after her and I start yelling at her like “what are you doing!”while trying to swim after her.I couldn’t see my sisters face but it felt like it was her, I think the river was moving kinda fast because I was trying to move fast and grab my sister before the water pulled us farther away from the wall, so I grabbed her with me and tried to pull us back up to the top of the wall by grabbing the little crack opening lines that were already on the wall and I was telling/yelling at her to not do it again and I think I ended up balling both of us up to the top of the wall. I think I woke up for a minute and went back to the dream but it was still faint and I think she jumped again but after that I woke up. Any insight?

Hi! Great video explaining water dreams. I had a dream – it was so clear, but no dream interpretation quite hits on what happened in my dream. For me, I was with people I don’t know, but feel that we were all on a mission trip or something together. We are on the side of a cliff climbing down the edge. There’s water below, it’s still. There are large boulders in the waters edge. We get to where there is a hole and rocks all around it. Some people I’m with start jumping into the hole. They jump and disappear- I feel like they made it. We are still pretty high up the edge. Everyone jumps but me. I hang on and slowly climb down – jump onto a rock and then into the water and swim to find the others and explore caves. Then I wake up. I’m curious what it means that I didn’t jump and I was scared to jump.

    Carol Chapman - May 5, 2021

    Hi Juli, This is what it would mean if it was my dream. Since jumping off a cliff into water usually means taking an emotional risk, it would mean to me that something had happened in my waking life that required my taking a risk. Since rocks usually symbolize difficulties, it would mean to me that I’d be afraid to take a risk because of fearing the difficulties involved. Since your dream also involves exploring caves, it could be that the fear has to do with exploring your “deeper self.” Does that fit with what’s going on in your waking life? Are you feeling cautious about taking on something that could involve facing some inner truths? If it’s responsive to you, please get back to me. Thanks.

Hi Carol: Thank you so very much…There are no coincidences we were meant to connect. I must say, your dream interpretation does resonate with me. Interesting, that I am usually able to understand my dreams, but this time I did not. There you were shining bright in my emails this morning. Smiles!
Yes I have been working on a major creative project, and yes there is -practical considerations of my “daily bread that I have been trying to work around. The “Risk factor” is ” an negative emotional drain coming from entity tied to the work-income daily bread routine. and the solution is??? C’est la vie!

    Carol Chapman - October 5, 2020

    Hi again Joanna, thanks for the feedback. Yes, very interesting. Wishing you well with your creative project!

joanna - October 5, 2020

hi Carol
I received your email today Oct 5th ordinarily I would not comment however I had a dream last night on this very topic
I dove into the ocean to save a young child a boy from drowning then when I had a hold of the child and we were swimming back to shore I thought I barely know how to swim I hope it works when I realized I could put my feet firmly on the bottom which surprised me because I know it was really deeper then that
but calmly we went to the shore

    Carol Chapman - October 5, 2020

    Hi joanna, What an amazing coincidence! Lovely dream. Do you know what a young child usually represents in a dream? Or anyway, if it was my dream, it would mean a creative endeavor – a child of your inner self. Have you been contemplating doing something creatively exciting, but have been “drowning” in emotion instead of getting on with it. If you’ve been concerned it may be too risky, your dream seems to be saying that in spite of your fears, you will be surprised to be able to put your “feet firmly on the bottom.” Shore often represents practical concerns, as in, “down-to-earth.” I know you didn’t ask for an interpretation, but I’m curious if any of this resonates with you.

      joanna - October 5, 2020

      Hello Carol: I sent a response to your dream interpretation – however, I am not sure it went through please let me know if I need to write another response? Warm wishes,
