What is the meaning of a tsunami dream? To dream of a tsunami is to give you information about your spiritual and emotional states, often the message being that you are feeling insecure, overwhelmed, or not acting the way you should.
Depending on other elements, context, emotions and people that appear in your dreams, your tsunami dream could have a different meaning. Here are all the meanings of this type of dreams.
Dreaming about tsunami with your family
Family in dreams represents feelings of security and grounding, and the love that comes with strong relationships in your life. But family also comes with shared ideologies, social restrictions, dependent limitations, and the requirement to be acceptable in order to fit in.
If you dream of a tsunami and you are with your family, it represents a deep sense of insecurity that prevents you from taking positive action in your life. Family is a symbol of outer security, as your family represents the group of people who can never leave you no matter what you decide.
It can mean a lack of confidence to take action on your own. You may be too dependent on the people and things around you to feel secure, instead of finding that stability within yourself.
The message this dream sends is that you don't need anyone's affirmation or permission to live the life you were called to live.
Overcoming disapproval from family or your community is a common life lesson that many of us have to go through at some point in our lives. However, there are always positive results – you begin to see that breaking away from other people's approval gives you immense freedom to live the life of your dreams.
Dream about escaping a tsunami
Another common tsunami dream is that you are trying to escape this huge wave, and the dream is about running away and trying to survive.
What does it mean to dream of escaping a tsunami? Dreams of escaping a tsunami are often dreamed by people who are very sensitive to the energies around them, such as empaths or highly sensitive people.
If you identify with being energy sensitive, escaping a tsunami in your dream represents the spiritual gifts you have in this lifetime; Yet you feel like they make life overwhelming.
For example, empaths typically feel very tired, depressed, emotionally overwhelmed, socially isolated, and have many physical health issues. This is because they sense the emotions of others around them and try to process them as if they were their own.
Fleeing a tsunami in many cases represents the feeling of energetic overflow that is happening around you.
If that feels like you, the best thing you can do is learn to manage your empathy and take control of your incredible spiritual gifts. You are sensitive to these energies for a reason and can help many people once you learn to manage them and use them to your advantage.
Dream about surviving a tsunami
If you dream that you have survived a tsunami, it is a positive sign, because it means that you are starting to trust the flow of the universe.
You may have tried to escape the tsunami first, only to be swept away by the wave, tossed around and landed on your feet. It represents a part of you that knows your strength will prevail through this confidence.
In your waking life you may be facing challenges in the days, weeks, or months ahead. This will all have to do with challenging your confidence, trusting your intuition and following your heart. You will probably have to leave relationships with partners or friends, quit a job and take risks to start a new adventure.
These challenges may be something you choose to accept because you want to make changes in order to live a happier life. Or, these changes may be forced into your life and you will have to adapt.
As difficult as these challenges may seem, you should always refer to this dream as an affirmation that you are on the right path: you will survive no matter how big the wave comes to knock you down.
Dream about drowning in a tsunami
To dream of being swept away by a tsunami and drowning or dying suggests that something is missing on a spiritual or emotional level that makes you literally feel like you are drowning in your waking life.
You begin to surrender to the calls of the universe; however, you don't know how to make the necessary changes to get you on the right track. It can be a season where you feel isolated, helpless, out of control and can't see the end of the unhappiness you feel. You know you need a change, but you don't know the next steps.
To make matters worse, others may not understand why you feel so unhappy. You can have everything other people want: a great job, a house, a partner, etc. However, deep down, even though you cannot explain it to others, you know that you are not on your highest path.
The great wave is meant to sweep through your entire life and destroy everything, even the identity you have built over your lifetime so that you can be born again and start a new one. It's time to start living in a higher reality, but for you to get there, your current reality must be swept away.
Success is different for everyone, and despite everything you own or have, if you don't feel happy or satisfied, success for you can feel very different from the life you are currently living.
After dreaming about drowning in a tsunami, it can be helpful to write down your innermost fears and doubts. You may ask yourself:
What brings me joy and fulfillment on a deeper level?
If I could manifest anything today, what would I choose to manifest to feel more fulfilled?
If I could walk away from anything, what would I leave behind that causes me stress and anxiety?
These are just a few questions to get you started, and the more you keep pushing towards a life of happiness, the closer you'll be to starting to see positive changes taking shape.
Dream about seeing a tsunami from above
Dream about seeing a tsunami from above often represents something happening outside of your own individual realitye, and something you perceive from the collective energies around you. This is especially true if you look at it from high up in the sky, in the clouds, in an airplane or while flying over the ocean.
This dream may appear to you because of an emotionally tumultuous collective situation that will occur on a large scale, such as a natural disaster, political unrest, war, pandemic or financial crisis.
If you see the tsunami from above, you are connected to higher powers that can help those in need during difficult times. It is a call for you to reach out to those who are struggling during a difficult emotional time.
You may be called upon to be someone who heals or helps others, such as an intuitive healer, nurse, therapist, counselor, coach, or simply volunteering to help those in need.
It is a sign that you have a lot of compassion to give to others. So even sending your compassion to those who are hurting can do a lot to help them energetically.
What does a recurring tsunami dream mean?
If you are someone who has a recurring dream of a tsunami, this represents a recurring theme that you struggle with in this lifetime. Because this dream has to do with the element of water and the ocean, the theme you are struggling with most likely relates to emotions and spirituality.
It is a sign that you are strongly connected to the spiritual realm and that your emotions and behaviors are influenced by the energies you are picking up from the supernatural. This naturally means that you are probably very intuitive and a very sensitive person (HSP).
A theme in your life might be that you find it difficult to live in a materialistic reality when so much of your energy is influenced by the spiritual world. It could also be a theme of struggling to manage your empathic abilities.
Learning the art of energy management and psychic development can help you manage your gifts and should therefore ease your recurring tsunami dreams.
