I had a really weird dream about surfing.
I was at a beach near my old home in Brighton. I was there to surf some big waves that had been reported to be breaking on the beach soon.
I got out on my surfboard and started to drift out to sea no matter how hard I tried to get back to shore, I just kept drifting back out to sea.
Eventually these big waves came along, the ones that were due to break, I decided that this was my only chance to get back to shore safely under my own force.
The first couple of waves got me somewhere back nearer to where I wanted to be the third wave however was much stronger than the first two and started to drag me under. I struggled and tried to resurface in the end though I lost and could feel myself starting to drown.
I then woke up and it was a few seconds before I realised I was actually able to breath and not be inhaling sea water.
I did have a cold at the time; that explains the not being able to breath properly – I’m finding it hard to decipher the meaning of the sea and the land.
I’m guessing the shore is something that I was trying to achieve, somewhere in my life I wanted to get to? Maybe the dream was meant as a message of “You’re trying too hard” to achieve whatever the shore represented.
Maybe the waves drowning me was a way of saying “you don’t actually want / need to get to get to the shore” or the likely hood of obtaining the shore is very small so don’t even try just relax and go with it!
