Boat / Ship | Dream Meanings


Often when we are ready for a new relationship, or have begun a new relationship we dream about our exes. This causes many people distress as, even though it is only a dream, you can feel guilty and almost disloyal to your new partner. • However, dreams deal with emotions and memories and any new relationship exposes you to emotional vulnerability. This will trigger your dreaming mind to conjure up examples of when you felt similarly vulnerable which will tend to involve your exes. Explore issues of insecurity.

As mentioned in all relevant dream symbols, bodies of water represent your unconscious, your emotions and your accumulated soul experiences. Depending on the content of the dream, several different interpretations could be made.

The boat in your dream could represent you and the manner you navigate through your emotions. It could symbolize the voyage of your life, an adventure and exploration of your unconscious, or a connection to the people in your dream by pointing out something that all of you have in common (“in the same boat”). When interpreting this dream, consider the kind of voyage and the type of boat. Superstition-based dream interpretation books say that if the voyage is calm, you should go forward with your plans. However, if it is a very stormy voyage, get ready for an emotional upset (or challenge). “...But O the ship, the immortal ship! O ship aboard the ship!

Depth Psychology: Seeing a boat in a dream is a sign that your life is about to change. Since a boat usually is in the water, the dream mean that you feel you’re on “shaky ground.” A boat, like the Auto, Train, or Airplane might be a symbol of your life’s journey.

Our journey through the seas of life and how we meet the rough and smooth experiences, as with following example.

The dream occurred a few weeks before a break­down centering on the dreamer’s wife leaving him. ‘I am in a large glass boat with my wife.

The sea is very rough and I am afraid the boat will sink’ (Ron D).

Many boat/ship dreams depict something else: a situation we are involved in with other people which is difficult to get out of, such as marriage, business partnership, armed forces. Keel: basic personal strengths. Bows: one’s strength to meet life’s changes. Rudder: sureness about direction in life.

The ship sinking : fear of relationship ending—could be children leaving mother, so the collective ‘boat journey’ has finished; illness; death. Leaving boat but leaving bag on it: lack of identity, alone—perhaps when children have gone or job ended. Lots of small boats: other people’s relationships. Small boat with one other person: one’s relationship with that per­son. Going on a cruise: desiring relationship with others, or to be a pan of other people’s lives. Boat journey by night: classic archetype of searching for one’s roots in life; the journey into the unconscious. Anchored boat: security; stable relationship; opposite of drifting. Motorboat: similar to car, but more sense of isolation or aloneness. Ferryboat: if across a river, death, end of a relationship; transition from one phase of life to another. Disembarking: leaving a phase of life, such as moth­erhood or marriage. Embarking alone: independence or lone­liness. Idioms: burn one’s boats; in the same boat; miss the boat; rock the boat; ships that pass in the night; ship comes in; a tight ship. See submarine.

Dreamers Dictionary by
Boats in our dreams ride on the waves and the surface of the subconscious, so they are connected to the emotional and creative currents of life.

An ocean liner, carrying a large cargo of people and often goods, may or may not make it to port in our dreams.

If it does, it would suggest that you will reap the riches you deserve.


Ariadne's Book of Dream by
It will depend on what kind of boat is in the dream as to its interpretation.

A ferry or piloted boat holds all the symbolism of the journey across the river styx after death. Today it signifies the giving up of selfish desires. Having been able to do this, we may be ‘reborn’ into a better life, or way of living.

A small rowing boat would suggest an expedition of emotional discovery but one often undertaken alone.

A yacht might suggest a similar journey done with style, whereas a large ship would suggest creating new horizons but in the company of others. Early seafarers referred to their ships as ‘she’ largely, it is thought, because of the close dependence they had on them for life and because they were difficult to manage. Today ships have lost that personal association. What a boat does in the dream will have relevance as a reflection of our waking life, e.G. Running aground, pulling into harbour etc.

To dream of disembarking indicates the end of a project, successful or otherwise.

If we dream of missing a boat it shows we have not paid enough attention to detail to a project in our waking lives. Also consult the individual entry for boat / ship.

1- Dreaming of being in a situation where we arc worshipping something such as an idea, a person, a concept or an object is to be opening ourselves up to its influence.

If we are not particularly religious but find ourselves in the middle of an act of worship we mav need to look at how we deal with a common belief svstem or set of principles.

2- Sometimes, as we move towards a greater sense of Self, dream images materialise which indicate that we arc in a position to be worshipped. This may mean we need to take a careful look at whether we are developing an inflated idea of our own importance, or whether we are actually learning to accept that part of ourselves which is of value to other people.

To be worshipping an object which is not a religious image may suggest that we are paying too much attention to whatever that object represents.

For instance, we may be too materialistic, be paying too much attention to sex and so on.
