What does Pool Game mean in dream?

Pool (the Game) | Dream Meanings


Symbol for letting go, as in Water, Brook / Stream. Playing ball represents self-expression. However, a ball, as in football and handball, also expresses aggressive penetration, forging ahead.

Here, the reference is to the masculine side of pleasure in man as well as in woman. Often an expression of the pleasure men and women derive from submission. In rare cases, this symbolizes fear of aggression.

According to analytical psychology, it is a symbol of wholeness, of concentrated psychic energy. In depth psychology it is connected to experiences with one’s own sexuality.

If you yourself are the ball (in the game), it refers to a lack of willpower, steadfastness, and purpose.

Christian Dream Symbols by
People dream about all different types of games. Some are simple and borrowed from daily life, like basketball or Monopoly. Other games in dreams are bizarre, incredible, totally unrealistic, and some are even sadistic.

To interpret the dream you must consider its greater context and your emotional reactions in it. Some games are simply a form of entertainment from your unconscious. You may be having fun in your dream. This is not all that common, but it does happen from time to time. Other “game” dreams may represent the challenges in your life, your competitive nature, or your childishness. They may point out goals to be achieved or are a simple way to let out steam.

The game in your dream could also represent “the game of life.” This is not an original thought on my part, but it deserves attention and consideration.

If you are playing a strange game with people from your daily life, consider your interactions with them and the role that each individual plays.

The Complete Dream Book by
Spiritually, games are a form of ritualized conflict between two opposing forces. Wars and tribal localized fights were used previously by elders and priests to channel aggression. In the same way, because they are mock fights, games in dreams can be used as expressions of aggression against other people.

Psychological / emotional perspective: Specific games such as football, baseball, rugby and cricket (which are team games) represent for many the strong ability to identify with a ‘tribe’ or a group of people. They indicate the way in which we gain identity and how we connect with people.

A referee in such a game signifies the monitoring of our behaviour. In dreams, games that require the power of thought and strategy – such as chess or draughts – often give some idea of how we should be taking a situation forward. Decisions may need to be made where we have to gauge the result of our action and take into account our opponent’s reaction.

Our inner world of thoughts, fantasies and feelings, sometimes a sense of union with living beings—collective consciousness.

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences by
also see Water

Dreaming of a pool deals with our need for the understanding of our own emotions and inner feelings.

A pool in a wood, for instance, would suggest the ability to understand our own need for peace and tranquillity.

An urban swimming pool might signify our need for structure in our relationships with other people, whereas a pool in the road would suggest an emotional problem to be got through before carrying out our plans.

In order to understand ourselves we may need to explore the pool by totally immersing ourselves in it, that is, to become involved in our own emotions. How we deal with what arises (in more senses than one) will teach us a lot about ourselves.

The pool may suggest a form of cleansing, particularly of old traumas and emotions or of past misdeeds.

The most potent image of that is baptism by immersion.

3- There is a meditation or guided imagery technique which can enhance one’s ability to dream. First, you picture yourselves walking in a field. Feel the grass beneath your feet and the wind on your face. Walk towards a slight dip in the ground which is to your left. At the bottom of this dip there is a pool which is surrounded by trees. Sit quietly by the pool, simply thinking about your life. When you are ready, stand up and walk into the pool very slowly. Feci the water rising slowly up your body until you are immersed completely. At that point let go of all the tensions of the everyday world and concentrate on the peace which is within. Then slowly emerge from the pool, and again sit quietly beside it. When you arc ready, walk back to the point in the field where you started, and let the image fade. By practising this, gradually it will be found that the dream images take on a deeper meaning.
