To see and dream about a Tidal Wave or Tsunami is a powerful symbol. Remember to take note of the size of the tidal wave, the location of the tsunami, the people that you are with, as well as the aftermath if possible. They can all give clues and contexts as to why you are dreaming about the Tsunami tidal wave.
In general, a rising tsunami or a tidal wave within a dream represents repressed feelings and emotions. Seeing or observing a tidal wave without being in the situation means that you are experiencing unhappiness and emotional instability in a waking life.
Dreaming about an sudden incoming or rising tidal waves means that some significant events have caused the tidal wave, it was an event not expected before like an earthquake. The earthquake event may not directly impact you, but the underlying emotions has affected you dearly. It could be that in waking life, you may have a death among the friends that you know which does not impact you directly. However the incident still makes you feel and reflect strong emotions about your own life.
Consider the buildings that tsunami land on and flood in the dream, it will reflect an eventual overpowering and changing of attitudes towards the buildings. For example, banks might relate to your emotions over money, and church relates to your faith and spirituality.
Dream About Running From a Tidal Wave
Running from a tidal wave in your dream represents that you are trying to get away from your strong overwhelming emotions. The repressed emotions may have been bottled or put away for too long, and you can no longer control or hide from it.
If within the dream you are totally submerged inside the water after the tsunami and suffocating, it may mean that you need to learn how to deal with your emotions instead of running from it.
Animals that are trying to run away from the Tsunami can also offer good clues. Consider whom the animals might represent in waking life, they could relate to people who are trying to hide from your dangerous and overpowering emotional reactions. For example, dog, cat, horse, and cows might all symbolize different individuals in waking life.
