For the last few months, I have this returning dream about flooding. The circumstances I am finding myself are different in every dream, but what is common is these masses of grey water coming at me like a flood. The water may come in form of a tsunami, or an ocean water level rising and flooding the house I am in, or find myself floating on the piece of wood on a big sea of grey water, nothing ever happens to me. This has happened twice a month over the last 7 months. Any suggestions welcome. Thank you.

Dear Lucy, Thank you for your request for suggestions from us at Ananda Sangha Worldwide. If you can, please obtain my book The Meaning of Dreaming (by Savitri Simpson), in which I explain in detail about how to understand your dreams. It’s available at www.amazon.com or at www.crystalclarity.com. Recurring dreams mean that something or someone is trying to get your attention, to give you a message of some sort—I’m sure you have figured that is what is happening for you now.
Water can have many different meanings in our dreams. In any case, it is always better to seek analysis of your dreams from within yourself, rather than asking for someone else to do for you. After all, these are YOUR dreams and no one else’s!
Meditation is the best way to find answers to your questions about the important symbols in your dreams. Here’s what you can do (briefly outlined—again, much more about this technique this in my book):
At the beginning of your silent, sitting time of meditation, pray for the meanings of the major symbols in your dreams to be revealed to you. Then sit quietly and do your meditative breathing or other techniques. If you don’t have a daily meditation practice, then be sure to let us help you learn the best ways to do that.
At the close of your meditation time (having tried NOT to think of your dreams during that time, but rather just being at peace with yourself with a quiet mind), then re-ask the question: “What does this symbol in my dream mean? What part of me or my life does it represent?”
I think you’ll find that answers do come from God and your Higher Self. They may not come immediately. You may have to try this technique for several days. But they will come to you at just the right time, and you’ll KNOW they are true. Blessings and joy to you!
