Dream oceans and seas represent the unconscious emotions, instincts or urges that are influencing your attitude, approach and reactions in waking life. Perhaps their most symbolic associations are with the unconscious mind, and with the ebb and flow of feelings that can sometimes build up into a tidal wave of emotion. The state of the sea in your dream is highly significant: a shallow sea suggests lack of emotion, a stormy sea suggests passion and a calm sea suggests peace.
The ocean and the sea are also a symbol of the feminine principle, so a dream of being overwhelmed by a wave may suggest that you are being smothered or dominated by a woman in your life, whilst calmly floating in the sea or surfing the waves suggests a good relationship with yourself, and perhaps with a woman.
If you are struggling against the tide, this is a sign that you are not making the progress you had anticipated, but that you are nonetheless gaining strength and wisdom from the struggle.
If a sea monster emerges from the depths, could this symbolize unconscious fear or even an aspect of yourself that is being repressed in waking life?... ocean / sea dream meaning
Food comes in all shapes and forms, and just as you can eat almost anything in life, the same goes for time spent in dreamland. Here are some common food symbols and a summary of their meanings.... types of food dream meaning
In dreams, a dish usually represents food that needs to be eaten now, and thus represents ideas or projects that should be tackled immediately. Jungians often see a drinking glass or wineglass as a symbol of the mythical Holy Grail, offering the dreamer spiritual sustenance. For Freudians, to dream of drinking from a glass expresses sexual desire, as like other receptacles, the glass symbolizes the female genitals. A broken drinking glass can represent loss of virginity. Food and drink are everyday items that regularly feature in dreams. In general, they are regarded as positive signs, but there are so many possible interpretations when food or drink—or eating and drinking—feature in a dream that a whole chapter has been devoted to the subject later on.
See FOOD AND DRINK.... dish / drink / food / glass dream meaning
As food and drink are important and familiar to us, it is no surprise that eating or drinking often features in our dreams.
In some cases, dreams that focus on food and drink may arise out of nocturnal hunger or thirst but, more often than not, such dreams provide symbols that refer to other appetites; these could be, for example, our desire for spiritual, emotional and intellectual nourishment, or for sensory or sexual gratification. For Freud, food represented sexuality because he considered the mouth to be the primary erogenous zone. Most dream analysts, however, follow Jung’s lead and suggest that dream food represents the qualities you are taking in, or need to take in, to yourself for personal, emotional and spiritual development. In other words, the dream is trying to compensate for your feeling of being malnourished in some aspect of your waking life and it could be pointing to a physical, intellectual, spiritual or emotional source for this hunger.
Dreams of being thirsty, drinking or drunk, cooking, comfort eating or dining out, fasting or gorging can send you powerful messages about your current state of psychological well-being.
If a specific food was highlighted in your dream, this might also be significant; different types of food can mean different things. As always when interpreting dream images, it is important to examine what your personal associations with that food are first.... food and drink dream meaning
The following foods have specific symbolic meanings but remember that whatever you eat in a dream is likely to correspond with your food preferences in waking life first and foremost; so, for example, if you hate mustard but find that it tastes good in a dream, this may refer to a difficult experience that is good for you. The interpretation would differ if you loved mustard perhaps suggesting a period of overindulgence.

According to Jung, a voyage at sea suggests an exploration of the unconscious. Freudians might see the sea as a symbol of the mother or the womb and therefore might regard a sea voyage as an incest wish. Freudians would certainly regard a ship as a phallic symbol, with a ship being tossed about in turbulent seas representing passionate love-making, and a sinking ship suggesting doomed love.
If you do dream of traveling in a boat, pay close attention to the conditions of travel as they will reveal much about your waking situation. Are the waters calm or is a storm building?
If the boat is drifting aimlessly on the water, you may feel that you are lacking direction, whilst if the boat capsizes, this suggests imminent danger or obstacles ahead.
If you are enjoying a tranquil boat ride that is slowly but surely heading in the right direction, this could imply a sense of anticipated success with a particular project in real life. A ferry is an archetypal vessel associated with transition from one stage of consciousness to another, and the ferryman is the archetypal wise old man.
If you dream of docks, this is a symbol of the safe ground you leave behind as you begin your voyage of discovery.... sea voyage dream meaning
