I Can Breathe Underwater! (Breathe Underwater Dream)
I have a recurring dream a lot. It isn't ALWAYS exactly the same, but often in my dreams I can breathe for hours underwater. It's like I've found some revolutionary way for humans to breathe under water. Sometimes it's a lake, sometimes a pool. But everytime I have this dream, It's like I discover my "talent" for the first time.

Any thoughts?

I have had breath underwater dreams, too. I think it is a form of lucid dreaming. Water usually represents the unconscious. To be able to hang out underwater for a long period and look around, be curious, without having to surface for air, is to be able to be submerged in unconscious experience that we usually take "flight" from. The fact that you have had these dream repeatedly, and that you feel like you have discovered a new talent, suggests an ability and orientation. I would guess that you are better at hanging out in the unconscious, and having a look around, than most others.

Water is about cleansing, but it's also about emotions. I have the sense that the water you are breathing under is always clear. Your dream tells me that you are very grounded person, that even while you may go through some deep emotional experience in life, you always remember to breathe, which keeps you focused.

The first thing that comes to mind is that when you are under pressure (under water) you can breathe. This means you can handle being under pressure for a while. The pressured situation in life isn’t going to kill you. It’s not impossible for you to handle emotional situations. Would that describe your behavior in real life? At the time you had the dream were you going through an emotional time? If so the dream is just showing you, you’re going to be just fine. I hope this helps!

Frogs are born as tadpoles, and live the beginning of their life in the water. When they are mature enough they emerge out of the water to find for the first time that they can breathe a different way. With that comes a whole new set of circumstances, adventures, and challenges. I think this dream is telling you that there is something more you have yet to discover about your life, but you will find that it is also seems somewhat natural to you. That is awesome to know, because I believe that having this dream means that you can find this new thing!
