Don’t go chasing waterfalls…
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to…
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all…
But I think you’re moving too fast…
That’s the famous song Waterfalls by TLC, a 90’s classic!
The lyrics in this song might mean a bit more to you if you’ve recently been having dreams about waterfalls lately.
While you may have just thought that you had a pleasant dream last night, this dream could be holding much deeper meanings, just like the lyrics in this R&B hit.
In fact, the boundaries of your conscious mind fall when you finally rest, giving your subconscious mind a moment to reveal to you what’s happening within on an emotional, spiritual level.
So, when you see waterfalls in your dream, there could be many significant signs that you should pay attention to.
In this post, we will be covering the deeper meaning behind dreams with waterfalls and what they may mean for you.
The Deeper Meaning of Dreams That Involve Waterfalls
It’s helpful to understand a bit more about waterfalls, not just admire their beauty when diving into dream interpretation.
Waterfalls are a point in a river or stream where water flows over a vertical drop or a series of steep drops.
They are almost magical to witness, but they’re not just majestic.
In fact, overtime they erode the hard rock surfaces around them. But that’s not all…
Waterfalls do much more for the environment around them than break away harder rocks around them.
The water sprayed from the water tumbling down hits a particular area around the drop of the waterfall and then creates a large pool of water at the bottom.
This pool is home to all kinds of wildlife, creating it’s own little ecosystem below.
Not to mention, the mist from the falling water helps minerals travel from the natural water source to the surrounding life around it.
This natural action helps plant life grow all around the waterfall.
This is why the rocks around waterfalls are usually covered in moss, surrounded by flourishing trees, and flowers.
If you can’t tell, there may be very many positive meanings to having a dream about waterfalls just by studying what waterfalls do for the environment naturally.
The Water Drop Ripple Effect
Have you ever seen a single drop of water hit a still surface of water?
You will notice as it connects with the other body of water, there is a ripple effect that happens around the site of the drop itself.
This is a physical representation of something seemingly so small happening that effects the environment around them.
If you have a dream about a waterfall, you may need to pay attention to the many drops of water that actually make up the waterfall.
Maybe in this type of dream interpretation, you shouldn’t pay so much attention to the big picture, but rather the details.
If you’ve recently been thinking of making small changes in your life, this could have a “ripple effect” on the rest of your life.
The decisions that you’re making or changes you’re about to make could also have an effect on those people all around you.
Your dream could be either encouraging you to make those small changes in order to continue making progress in your life.
Alternatively, your dream could be warning you or reminding you that every decision you make does in fact have an effect on everything else in your life.
Renewal or Rebirth
If you’ve recently had a dream of standing beneath a waterfall in the pool of water below, this could be a sign that you’re being energetically cleansed in the astral realm.
If in your physical reality you’ve been considering any energetic cleansing, this could be a sign that you’re on the right track.
Or, if you’ve been avoiding taking time to cleanse and regroup your energy, your dreams could be nudging you to do so.
You may be on the precipice of a rebirth.
Realigning your energy could be a very big step that could help you sync with the manifestations or bright future that you’re trying to create.
Losing Connection With Someone
If you’ve recently had a dream that you witnessed someone fall over the edge of a waterfall, this could be a significant dream confirming that this connection is over for now.
In this type of dream, it’s important to pay attention to the details.
Who was in your dream?
What were you doing in the dream?
Did you feel anything when you saw the other person drifting closer and closer to the edge of the waterfall?
Did you feel any urge to help or save them from falling over?
All of these questions can help you discover what your dream was trying to tell you.
If you have a hard time remembering the details of your dream, try to jot them down when you first wake up.
This could jog your memory of important details that can reveal hidden messages.
Put Yourself First
If your dream about a waterfall was more active, like you were trying to save someone from falling over the edge, this could mean that you’re focused too much on others.
While in your dream you may be trying to do something inherently good, you’re ultimately risking your own well being and safety to do so.
The details of this dream are also important.
If you had the ability to save someone from being tossed over the edge of a waterfall safely, this could mean that you have the chance to do a good deed for someone.
However, if you find that you had to struggle to help that person or almost fall over the waterfall yourself, it may be time to reevaluate who you’re helping in your waking life and why.
What Are Your Dream Experiences With Waterfalls?
Most dreams about waterfalls bring about positive omens.
Usually, being around water in the physical world (or being shown water in your dream) is a sign that there is healing, cleansing energy surrounding you.
Of course, the water can be a force to be reckoned with as well, so do pay attention to how waterfalls show up in the context of your dreams.
If the water is shown in a more violent or uncontrollable manner, this could be a sign from the dream realm that your emotional world is also feeling imbalanced.
