The Ship


The powerful ship moved purposefully through the water.  The ship travelled through a sort of canal with buildings on each side, crashing and breaking the boarders of the land, tall houses falling in its wake.  It reached the sea and rose high before it charged towards the waves as if in battle.  We were as much victims of the ship as the seas in which it sailed, caught in its depths and awaiting our fate.  The ship crashed to the left and its passengers fell and crashed with it.  I grabbed my yellow sailing jacket, I knew we were in for a rocky ride, I wanted to be prepared.  The last thing I remember before I woke was that I could not tie my shoe laces in preparation for the journey ahead.

I sat up in bed and looked around, heart beating and catching my breath.  I wrote it down, I wanted to remember for the morning for when I woke.

This morning I reached up to the shelf for my dream book before preparing coffee.  I hadn’t needed to see my scribbled reminder, it was still very clear.  Without looking I knew that rough seas couldn’t be good, that in my dream I was prepared or trying to prepare myself was something, but I felt it might indicate a long ride ahead.  That the ship was big and strong gave me hope, because although it was throwing me all over the place it gave some protection.

The dream dictionary told me ships are an augury of profitable ventures, however a shipwreck portends to a situation where you will have to defend yourself.  The dream book directed me to look up ocean, it said that in any dream the condition of the water and weather must be taken into account. The water and weather had been horrendous in my dream.  Rough or stormy water is a warning that real courage will be needed to overcome your obstacles, just what I need at the present time!

I have one hope though as the book suggested an ocean voyage predicts a lucky escape from an irritating problem.  I guess I must have got on the ship in the first place to have hung my yellow sailing jacket.

Any other interpretations out there much appreciated 😉

  1. Hi Liza. I am a believer of listening to our subconscious (or unconscious) through our dreams and this is really helpful. I use an app called Dream Moods. However, as with any dream book, you have to look at the meanings of each aspect put together to make sense of the message. Then, looking at your waking life, you start to clearly see the message. Water in general denotes emotions or subconscious. It also symbolizes spirituality and knowledge. Thus, the ocean or sea has the same meaning. Sailing signifies new found freedom, the app says. A rough ocean means you have some emotional turmoil but you are doing your best to handle life’s ups and downs. Ship also refers to emotions and subconscious so this whole dream is totally about something related to your emotions that could have been repressed maybe thus, subconscious, too. The state of the ship is indicative of your emotional state. But, the good thing is that it says if you’re sailing the high seas, it means that you are still standing tall despite the emotional turmoil in your life. Crashing or sinking means feelings are out of control so taking that to future tense but with you preparing, I think it’s not a bad omen. It’s uncertainty. It’s a fear that you might lose something important to you. I hope this makes sense. My husband always dreams of really strange dreams, strange at face value, but yesterday, he looked one up and putting things together, I observed that the dream makes sense in the context of reality. 🙂 Looks like you have some spiritual guidance so what ever it is, you have nothing to worry about. 🙂

    1. Anne, that is so helpful and does really make sense. I thought it was probably important, it was meant to be thought about and I’ve though about it a lot today. It’s amazing what our unconscious minds can tell us. Thanks again for taking the time to give your interpretation which is very relevant 🙂

      1. Ah, that’s great. I’m glad. Now, you’re fully prepared. 😊 I find the whole subconscious very interesting, as much as Metaphysics and Quantum Physics. Our mind is simply amazing, right?

      2. So true. The thoughts of the unknown can be quite scary but in the bigger scheme of things, I think what’s out there is exciting (evil excluded). Would make for thought-provoking writing. 🙂
