Water

Water in dreams is a universal symbol for emotions. How water behaves in a dream always is significant. Rising water indicates rising emotions. Turbulent, choppy waters, in which a dreamer fears being swamped or drowning, symbolizes being overwhelmed emotionally. Tidal waves may symbolize specific threats that "loom in the distance." Being caught in a swift moving current (such as in a river) suggests being "swept up" in one's emotions. Cloudy water suggests lack of emotional clarity, and fears of emotional contamination, whereas clear water suggests the opposite. Swimming or bathing peacefully in water symbolizes a comfortable immersion in one's emotions. The ability to breathe underwater indicates accessibility to unconscious feelings and awarenesses.
