I had a dream me and a bunch of women and children were on a Call ofDuty Modern Warfare 3 map “Dome” and we entered the room by the bomb in S&D or on the top of the mini map and it started to flood. A door opened and everybody evacuated but I stayed behind INCASE any other kids were left behind who can’t swim. What I see are 3 kids floating face down in the water but since I was afraid to get them, I left them until someone else found them. Then I felt a heavy amount of guilt on my chest. Once I see they are dead I see them in a stretcher and the kids faces are the faces they made like they couldn’t breath. It was terrifying. The I woke up but it’s been on my mind all day. I swear this is 100% true and no troll. I need a reply because I have a huge amount of guilt on my chest but I’m not sure why because this never happened.

  20. I never dream, I’m a heavy sleeper and once in a blue moon I dream but is rare if I remember the dream. Today I dream about being in this mobile home kitchen (which I seen it before in my dreams) with my husband, mother in law and autistic 7 year old son. We were getting ready packing stuff for something when suddenly a flood came and the mobile home started flooding, I turn my head calling my mother in law name as she walks away to the door and my son follows her without me noticing. I felt abandoned by her at that moment. As me and husband argue the situation we noticed my son is not with us and we see him drawing outside we immediately swim outside trying to get him without success as we see him drawing at that point I panic not being able to get him I started screaming my lungs off statically like never before trying to reach my son. That’s when I hear him behind me running on soil next to me I hug him tight crying and he started crying because he saw me crying…
    I woke up scared and worried about my son.

    About this dream I felt abandoned by my mother in law the only person I only trust with my son also she’s the only one I rely on and only ask for favors when I really really need it and have no choice about it. She’s the only person I have deposit all my trust personally and financially. Since I’m a really independent woman work as a nurse who doesn’t ask for nothing in hard situations.
    I started trusting her a year ago when I saw how much my son loves her and trust leaving with her.
    I wonder what this drawning dream means

  21. I am 36 weeks pregnant. My dream last night was very vivid. I dreamed that I was on a ship that starts to sink and turned to ice on the inside in a room. I made it out of the ship only to return?

  22. Dreamt that I was drowning my older brother,pushing him down in the water with a white cloth around him. And also my late grandfather,also the same I’m drowning them with them having white over them.really bothers me

  23. I had a dream i was sat on a bridge with someone that i aint been in contact with for years, the bridge was really high and there was flowing fast water below, my dog fell off and i watched him falling until he hit the water, he was floating there on his back dead, i was about to jump off even though i cannot swim then i woke up in fear calling his name . what does this mean ?

  24. I had this dream twice and I was trapped in a dome like thing covered in ice. The water started to rise eventually trapping me under the water. I held my breath for what felt like 10 minutes and then it all went black. I woke up from the blackness (still in the dream.) and I was trapped and there was a hatch but it was locked. I finally got out and was greeted my my best friend who has stage 3 out of 4 ovarian cancer at the age 11. I know she is dead and realize I am too. I know she dead because she has gained weight and has long hair and is healthy. Other people are there , I know them but they are fuzzy. The only people that are clear are me and my friend Jordan (the one that is dying) and then I woke up crying and thinking about Jordan. It’s weird because Jordan is still alive.

  25. Plese help me interpret this dream. I am desperate to understand, as I have never had a dream like this.
    It was a very ‘CSI’ kinna scene & crowd, I was one of them. Pulled from the bottom of a well was an old, obese man’s corpse, water-logged and decaying, in Shakespearean clothing, water spouting from holes in his body. As he was pulled up there were sounds of disgust, but then once exposed how strange it was for him to be in this clothing yet only as dead as he was, everyone was silent in shock. I felt extremely dark & shaken. That’s all I remember.
    I am an avg young adult female btw.
    What can this imagery possibly mean? Please help me understand why I dreamt this.

  36. Hi I have been excited about taking a cruse on Carnival and had the following dream.

    I was traveling on the road driving to the boat and once one the boat the following scene played more than three times.

    The I felt myself standing on the deck and saw everyone enjoying themself and laughing. All of a sudden the ship turned over front first. As the ship went down I felt calm and did not get excited the water slowly went in my mouth. Then the same scen played again, this time more water went into my mouth. This scene played out at least three times and then I saw another scene, I was in a house I did not recognize and there were people walking around in black and white. I don’t think I recognized anyone.

    All of a sudden I saw a bright light and woke up.

    I am praying for understanding but apprehensive about taking my birthday cruise this October.

  37. So, it’s kind of an odd dream; I was a twelve or thirteen year old boy, (I am a female) and I had a twin sister, (I have no twin) and also my grandpa. It was a sunny day, and we were riding on a small boat; big enough to probably fit about six or seven people. (Some of this will be quite odd and surreal, and at times choppy; it’s starting to fade away from memory) We were going quite fast, and my sister and I started… Jumping… Off the boat? It was a dream, so it was “Normal” and “Safe”. After a couple of times of going back and fourth, (The boat was still… “Driving”) I jumped in again, and started to sink. But it was unsettling, because I could see the light fading away, and… Agh, so creepy. So, I hit the very bottom, (And in dreams, I can lightly breath, and somehow I’m still unaware that I’m dreaming.) And I felt physically unable to swim up. So I was thrashing around, trying to get one inch off the ocean floor, but then my “twin sister” came to save me. When we got up, I said how I was surprised and very, very embarrassed that I couldn’t swim. My “grandpa” asked why, and I said something along the lines of, “I’ve never sank to the bottom like that. I always float to the top.” (I know it’s stupid, but it’s a dream.) And then my grandpa said, “Well maybe you shouldn’t do that.”
    And that was all I remembered, aside from having a shipwreck during the nighttime, and being saved, but all of that is very blurry to me.

  38. Hi, I dreamed that I was in one of the underwater science facility that was slowly filling up with water. A lot of people were around and we were just sitting there waiting to be drowned. The water level was going to overtake me and suddenly I realized it was a dream and I made myself wake up. The thought came to my mind where I was thinking if I would physically die if I drowned in my dream. It wasn’t really those scary type of dream, more like waiting for it to happen.
    Could anyone help with a bit of explanation? =(

  39. I had a dream that my oldest dog very calmly got in our pool, swam to the floor of the pool and just lied there. In the dream, I screamed, my mom jumped in grabbed her and pulled her to the surface and she was still breathing was ok. two days later I had a dream that my 2nd oldest dog was lying on the floor of our pool the exact same way my first dog was. Except I could see air bubbles coming from her mouth and her lungs inflating and deflating so I knew she was breathing and not drowning.

  51. I had a dream , my four year old daughter was missing . I couldn’t find her , we were in a strange house that was not our home . I had a feeling to check the basement and when I got down there , different parts of the basement was submerged in water . There was so much clutter the water, it was foggy. What felt like hours later , my sister found her but my daughter was completely pale with blue lips she got frightened and dropped her back in the water , she didn’t tell me . Once I checked that area I seen her little hand sticking out of the water I grabbed her , picked her up and carried her out of the basement. I sat somewhere with her and magically after crying with her in my arms , cradling her in my arms . She woke up , stated to breathe, she started looking around , I can’t explain it , she came back to life . Her face started to slowly become rosy again. The blue lips where beginning to go back to the normal shade of tannish pink . She looked at me with her big brown eyes . She laid her head on my chest and rested in my arms . I never heard her speak , but that alone seeing her breathing and alive was the best part of that dream . but what felt like hours of her being missing and intentionally drowned by a person I don’t know , or never seen in the dream . I don’t know who did it . Alls I know is little parts of the conversation I had with my sister when we were looking for my baby . I woke up once I seen her alive . I’m not sure what this means , but she is starting preschool this coming Monday. We met with her teachers yesterday . Would this have anything to do with that ?
