Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.

DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of ponds and pools in dreams?

Ponds seem to be related to the feelings in our life. Water is of course symbolic of our unconscious as it moves and flows in the same way our emotions change. But here the land is most important as it symbolises the facts and reality of our life. So we are judging the emotions linked to our general lives.

Often ponds show that we are stuck in our own emotions. E.g.

"I have been thinking about myself. Am I happy or am I just fooling myself"[Dream symbol - pond dream][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"A couple of days ago I was full of the joys of the world yet now I feel DEPRESSED"[Dream Dictionary - dead goldfish pond]

"I am not sure of this extra work I take on. Its only voluntary and it leaves me EMOTIONALLY tired. "[Dream Dictionary - Pond]

"I was pressured into taking one career option but I really hate it. I think I have an unconscious urge to head off in my own direction"[Dream symbol - pool of water underground]

"I have just started a new job and feel overstretched. I feel as if I am out of my depth"[Dream Dictionary - pond]

"I have thinking a lot about my depression and what I can do about them"[Dream symbol - three ponds]

"My son has moved back in and I am making him stick by my rules. I am used to my own space"[Dream Dictionary - pond]
------------------------------
DREAM TIP : Dreams about ponds are quite easy to understand. Ponds tend to link to moments when we look inside our own emotions. Simply then look back to the previous day and see in what ways you have been stuck in your own emotions. Also look for ways in which other people have been looking inside their own emotions and examining their feelings. Once you can spot some strong connection then you will know what is the general topic of the dream. Then look for other clues in other symbols.

SAMPLE DREAM
----------------------------
THE DREAM I have had two dreams with frogs in them. In the first one, I was in a huge university setting, with lots of rooms and staircases, and you needed to take specific staircases to get to certain floors, but then I found myself outside in an enclosed fenced in area with a pond. In this pond was a frog (single frog) sitting on a Lilly pad in the middle. In the second dream, there was a frog trapped in a window well, and I looked at him and he smiled at me and I told him I would get him out of there.

THE REALITY The dreamer had been going through a lot of transitions lately, and have been focusing a lot on trying to improve herself. She was wondering what to do with her life and wondered if she was truly happy or just fooling herself.

DREAM ANALYSIS Ponds are symbols of your own personal emotions and this dreamer was indeed thinking about herself and her own emotions. They show you are thinking a lot about yourself.

But this dream matches reality in other ways very strongly too. Universities are symbols of moments when we are thinking very seriously and making considered judgements on our life in some way.

The staircase is connected to judgement. It symbolises how we are trying to make up our minds or coming to some new conclusions. In this case it links to her examining her own conclusions.

Frogs are classic symbols of transformation. They link to the dreamers own need to change to her new life circumstances. She had had to give up work due to ill health and this was affecting the dreamer as her work was very important to her.

Symbolic Meanings
FROG : "a symbol of transformation"
POND : "The dreamers own personal emotions and thoughts about herself"
STAIRS : "Examining your own conclusions "
UNIVERSITY : "considered and careful thinking about issues in your life"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have been thinking about my own situation recently and have come to some conclusions. I am in a stage of transformation. I think things are clearer in my mind now".
