-1.            November 1, 2006 at 6:00 am e I always have tsunami dreams, about one a week, sometimes it is very terrifying and other times its very interesting but I just dont have a clue what they mean. When my mom was little she had the same thing tsunami dreams all the time. I used to live in Hawaii and my dreams would keep me from going to the beach, even here in california I dotn wanna go to the beach, its werid

-1.            April 3, 2007 at 5:16 pm e I have recently had a tsunami dream. The odd part is I’m not going through any spiritual strife and I had not even though of a tsunami until the dream. When I awoke this morning, I had to ask my husband several times if we were okay and make sure my son was safe. It was later in the morning that I found out a tsunami had struck the Solomon Islands. Do you think this is just a coincidence? I kinda feel creepy about the whole thing because I’ve never had a tsunami dream before. Very bizarre.

-1.            April 4, 2007 at 12:15 am e Like Danielle, I seem to have a Tsunami dream about once a week. They cover a broad spectrum from being intensely vivid and terrifying to being downright surreal. I didn’t have them before the tragedy in South Asia, and yet that event does not enter my thoughts on a daily basis. Rather than a feeling of internal cleansing, all my tsunami dreams seem to be underscored by a feeling of needing to maintain control and a desperate attempt to rescue often quite specific people I know. As fascinating as I find them, they cause me a great feeling of ease – sometimes feeling quite washed out, so to speak – in my waking life. I may start writing them down with more regularity as a means of trying to understand them better.

-1.            April 24, 2007 at 8:28 am e I have had two tsunami dreams in the past year and have been quite vivid. From the sucking back of the ocean to the massive breaking wave. I have been going through an extremely emotional time with a possible marriage breakdown. I guess I decifer this dream to mean it is a flooding of emotions. I decifer the sucking back of water to mean that my life will be lesser. In the dream I feel quite helpless.

-1.            April 25, 2007 at 12:00 pm e I have been having these Tsunami or very high tidal wave dreams about the height of what the twin towers used to be. These dreams have been happening since I can remember.I always seem to live through it in my dreams, then I wake up.I am also around a lot of people. Each place is a different area. Very strange.

-1.            May 14, 2007 at 10:30 am e i often dream a tsunami, since about one year.in the dream i’m somewhere (not always on a beach) and i see a very high wave coming, it is so huge..i never feel that i’m going to die, i know that i have just to hold to something very strong and then the wave goes down..and up again.water overwhelms me but i resist.after two or more times it stops but i still fear it will come again.so i run to inland and sometimes i can see it coming when i’m far away.i’m more worried for others than for me.i feel like i just have to hold on and a also a bit excited.

Like Georgia, in my dreams I’m always more worried for others than for me. I’d lake to make contact with people with this sort of dream, see if we can find a meaning for it. this is my email: jsabir23@hotmail.com

-1.            June 10, 2007 at 9:57 pm e I have had at least 3 Tsunami dreams, the first I had after moving to Brighton, in this dream I was transported back to my home town, where at home I found 2 cartoonesque cats, 1 badly injured, both super cute! that wanted me to look after them.
In a dream I had last nite a Tsunami ripped through my home town centre, I had to escape and found myself in a hotel looking out to the sea where the Tsunmami forced me and 2 close friends to climb to the roof where we found ourselves in a ‘fun-house/fairground’ which was quickly being overtaken by water.
The power of these dreams is incredible, im very intetrigued!

-1.            July 22, 2007 at 2:01 pm e I keep having tsunami dreams all are different stories but all of them end up with me running or driving to get away from the water before it hits and then watching in the distance on a cliff or a higher roads sometimes taller structures as the water rises and then I am able to watch in the distance as the water hits homes and slams into roads along cliffs…I have had so many of these kinds of dreams over the last 2 years and last night another. I am always scared but yet excited and intrigued with watching to see what will happen and it feels is so real to me that when I wake it takes me some time to get adjusted to reality. It sounds like I am not alone after reading this blog. I just really wish I knew why I was always having the same scenerio.

-1.            August 3, 2007 at 11:00 am e There are many ways to look at tsunami dreams. To understand your dreams you really have to see them in the context of your life. Dreams are an endless and interesting study, and anything any one says is open to conjecture and even ridicule. But dreams occupy quite a significant portion of our lives and they are as real as our conscious world but I think that they come to our somatic intellect via a sacred portal that connects the somatic intellect and the ponderings of the individual’s spirit or 5th dimension to our lives.
In the context of our lives these images that reoccur have specific significance. I would say that for many the image of the tsunami is a visual portrayal of the great tide of life. It is natural, it is all powerful, it contains within the great slow but powerful wall of water the image of our life and with it the constant reminder of our death. The approaching and somewhat threatening, tide of our human biology perhaps. 
The reason that the dream reoccurs is most likely due to the fact that we are unable to digest the idea, the message that our spirit is sending to our intelligence center in the brain. Once we do manage to understand what ever it is that our spirit is trying so hard to tell us, the dream will go away. Will we consciously know when we have managed to understand the image of the tsunami? No, I doubt it because the understanding will take place on a very primitive and basic level of the intellect – deep in the subconscious world of our existence. It will more than likely be understood on the level of the primitive reptilian brain buried deep below the cerebral cortex.
Tides and the female reproductive system are both synchronized by the moon! The spirit is far more intelligent than the intellect of the human brain!

-1.            August 15, 2007 at 4:18 am e i keep having the tsunami drems as well. i dont know what they mean or why i have them. but like one comment i read here was about having a dream the day the tsunami happened. the same thing kind of happened to me, only before the MAJOR tsunami in india. i never have the same dream, but i do dream A LOT about tsunamis. they dont scare me from the ocean or water in any way, i just think it may be a way for me to know that MAYBE something bad could happen. and theres nothing i would be able to do about it, it just IS a little creepy knowing something happens before it really does. IF thats even my case. i could be TOTALLY wrong, or then again i couldn’t. but either way, every time i have one of these dreams, SOMETHING, bit or little, just HAPPENS to HAPPEN …

-1.            August 29, 2007 at 10:41 am e Wow, I am so, so glad I found this site; I thought it was just me. 
I have been plagued by tsunami dreams for years. I also have dreams of other disasters, but over the past few years the tsunamis have become the star attraction. 
Like others here have said, some of mine are just weird or fascinating; occasionaly, though, they are downright terrifying. The worst one I ever had was about two weeks ago, my BF and dogs and I were at the coast and trying to get away from the waves; we kept going into taller and taller buildings but then we’d see that the water was going to get too high and we’d have to go to yet another building. I was having a horrible time keeping the dogs with me and there was just no end to the water coming and coming and coming. 
To top it off this latest one has seemed to give me some sort of hangover. The dream started out at an actual hotel on the Oregon coast that we’ve stayed at many times. The other day I caught myself thinking that “oh, I should go to that hotel’s website and look at the photos of the tsunami damage.” It was like I forgot for a moment that the whole thing had been a dream. And images from the dream keep intruding every time I look at a picture of the ocean now.

-1.            September 4, 2007 at 5:45 am e I also have this dream on occasion. Last night I had it again. It was not as terrifying as the first one. That was the worst and I woke up rather panicked.
I find this totally incredible that people from all over the world can have such a similar dream. My logic tells me that there is so much more to this. I just hope it is not a bad omen.

-1.    September 21, 2007 at 5:31 am e I was born in CA and moved to Hawaii. I’ve had tsunami dreams for as long as I can remember. I didn’t know how to put a name to it until one day when I was well into my twenties someone mentioned that they had a similar dream. They come in so many forms and different types of waves and scenarios. I had my worst one ever last night, just monstrous waves and crashing and getting all beaten up, I am so sickened by it. I have no clue why I have them. I dream about water a lot though, sometimes rivers, or the ocean.

Thanks so much for your comments about tsunami dreams. I wrote this post more than a year ago and I still get comments on it. I think that shows it’s a subject we need to hear more about. I will look up more info!

-1.            September 25, 2007 at 6:29 pm e I have just read through all the posts left about tsunami dreams and it’s really interesting. I wish now I’d kept more of a record of my experience; I kept going back to this blog in the hope of more updates but when I didn’t see any for a few weeks I decided it was time to just try and force the tsunami dreams out of my head rather than search for a venting station on the internet.
I have not had any dreams of this sort for some months now, although during that time tsunamis have entered my head in interesting ways. Firstly, I have them a great deal more when I am in bed with my beloved. He stated the obvious which is that he lives by the sea so that may be the answer, but I had two answers for him: firstly, it happened when he came to stay with me in Manchester (no sea) and secondly, I have since moved to Japan and have an apartment overlooking the sea and guess what? No tsunami dreams. 
So maybe the emotional bit holds some truth. Sad that I should have dreams pertaining to a loss of control or being overwhelmed by my emotions when he is present, but they did tend to increase in intensity and vividness up until my departure for Japan. Obviously this was a very stressful time for us both; while my move here has also been emotional, I have moved to a society where people are not so overt with their emotions. While this is for the most part for appearances only in Japanese culture (yes they do have feelings too), I have taken some of this manner on board and feel like I have a slightly tighter control on my emotions here; it’s as though the need to maintain composure on the outside has worked its way inside, although that’s not to say I don’t have days where I freak out completely  . 
The south asian tsunami struck more grief into me than I would have expected. Everyone remembers where they were when they heard about the twin towers or Diana, and I’m sure many remember where they were when they found out about that tragic loss of life. It is probably worth me mentioning that I have tried, in the main, to be a woman of faith. I have agnostic moments but generally hold that there exists a supreme force for good which manifests itself in our daily lives. The south asian tsunami produced an interesting reaction in me, as rather than swing me towards the agnostic(as many events have done for the past 8 years or so) it rather made this supreme force very concrete in my mind and made me very very angry at it. This was a unique experience for me, paradoxically reaffirming my faith in a unitary force (by unitary I mean spritually singular rather than physically) and yet having doubts about that force’s benevolence, and so maybe through my tsunami dreams I have been revisiting that experience as I struggle with a faith that is ever waxing and waining, and with a brain that is always trying to reconfigure the good and explain away the bad things that human beings endure. Like someone else said on your blog, the prevailing feeling is one of a need to maintain control of the situation and take care of others, and while it is very scary it never ends as tragically as it could; more people have always surivived than I expect to. 
I will take more time to check out the links you left soon and to read up more in detail – I have limited access to the internet at the moment but would like to join you on your quest to find out more! I am VERY sceptical of a great deal of theorising on dreams as a vast proportion of it just doesn’t seem to sit with the insanity that goes on in my head of a night’s sleep, but it’s always good to hear others’ opinions – as Tero says, anything anyone says is open to conjecture and even ridicule, but as long we maintain that so much is context bound then I think a fruitful discussion can be had.

-1.            September 27, 2007 at 9:16 am e YES it is exactly how you wrote it! See when I lived in Hawaii I told used to live with these hippies from Alaska, and I told then about my dreams they told me this story about this whole town having Tsunami dreams and later that year there was a huge earthquake, see everyone is connected and obviously something has triggered something in all our minds and there is an emotional connection I feel to everyone in this world. There are so many problems in this world that need to be dealt with but the wrong type of people is “fixing” (nothing) the problems. Thank you so much for getting back to me this is something that is always on my mind! As well I I read somewhere that a tsunami is a mother figure in your dream, while I was living in Hawaii is when I always these dreams then I found out my mom was diagnosed with cancer! So maybe a tsunami is a major life changing effect in our dreams who really knows no one. But again thank you for contacting me!!!

-1.            October 26, 2007 at 7:18 pm e I just up and quit my job 4 days ago. For the past three nights I have had nightmares and been unable to sleep. I was afraid I reacted on emotion and made a mistake, although I have wanted to quit for awhile. Last night I had an incredible dream of a tsumani that I was running from. During the aftermath, I was reunited with all of my family and felt very comforted that we were all ok. I feel even more comforted knowing that the tsunami represents a spiritual awakening. I DID make the right decision to leave that job. Now I can sleep well and dream peacefully. Thank you.

-1.            October 27, 2007 at 8:24 pm e HI everyone, i guess i need to comment, i have had these dreams for as long as i can remember berfore indonesia before twin towers. I am deeply concerned about these dreams, and its meaning, I wish Joseph from the bible was here to tell me what it means.
I can remember almost all the dreams ive had about this violent ocean,I have great respect and fear of the ocean, lately when i have been at the beach, i am too afraid to turn my back to the ocean, when i stay at a hotel, on the beach. i cant sleep at night because when i go out on the balcony at night all u see is black and you here the roar of the ocean, sometimes i would listen to the waves and whenever i hear a pause in the constant waves, i get scared all i can think of is that, the next thing im gonna see is a shiny glimmer of silver which means im looking at the crest of a tsunami thats speeding towards me. 
My latest dream has me up at 3:15am:
No Doubt this has been the worst one to date,
Im going to a meeting at the normal hotel on the beach, (I’ve had these dreams so much that automatically my subconscious draws me to the window over looking the ocean, everything looks normal this is always how this dream starts with me everything starts out normal, even before i went to the hotel in the dream, the dream i was having before i got there to the hotel was totally unrelated, i would have never thought it would have turned into the tsunami dream, but that’s how it starts this dream totally pops up out of nowhere and catches me off guard.
Anyway back to the dream:
I walked towards the window in the hotel and looked out to the ocean, it was a clear sunny day, and then it started, I always know when im having this dream, you know how, you know what tips me off and lets me know that ok this is the dream be on guard, well this is how i know the first wave is small and harmless, its just like any wave washing up on the sand, then the second one washes in but this time it washes all the way up to the grass of the hotel, and im thinking ok something isnt right here why did that happen, then i look out at the ocean and in and instant it turns ferociously violent, the waves start to get bigger and bigger.
OK as im looking at this through the hotel lobby window my heart drops as it always does when i see this, i am always with one person sometimes a loved one sometimes a complete stranger or someone who was linked to a previous dream i was having earlier the same night, anyway when i first had these dreams i was like a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming car, i was frozen i couldnt move when i saw the wave from afar off, i just stood there in awe and fear, but as i kept on having these dreams i was able to break out of the fear and start using my head and making snap decisions.
It got to the point that at the mere sight of the rough ocean or dark clouds over the ocean, i would tell anyone who was with me to get to high grounds NOW!! a TSUNAMI is imminent!! of course people were like its just rough waters, the person who was always by my side would always follow me and take heed to my warning as if they saw the same thing that i did and they also knew what was going to happen.
Who knows maybe the stranger was one of you that posted on here, in the midst of your own tsunami dream that was going on at the moment. ANyway to make long story short, when i was in the lobby and saw that second wave wash up close to the hotel it was like second nature i auotmatically new what i had to do, I thought peice of cake higher ground, but while i was moving i caught another glimpse of the ocean and it was terrifying i dont know what was scarier the site of the wave or the site of the violent ocean and people, it was angry more violent then i have ever seen in past dreams, it was like looking out at at a sea of boiling water just poping with bubbles and waves.( i never saw the ocean that way before)
And then i did something i have never done before instead of running up the stairs to the fifteenth floor (that’s how many floors there were at the hotel) I took the elevator ! dont ask me why i just did so i rush in the elevator and started frantically hitting the 15th floor button so the door would hurry up and close, Man i tell you i could hear the waves coming in it was insane, so the doors finnally closed and me and this stranger i was with who chose to follow me in the elevator for whatever reason) we started to move i looked up at the numbers of the floors we were passing and when we got to the third floor BAM! i heard water rushing in at the bottom of the elevator shaft, and the water did not come inside the elevator where we were it was like you knew the elevator shaft was filling up,cause when it reached the bottom of the elevator, the power to the elevator stopped and we felt like we were on a buoy bobbing back and forth in rough waters, i was like @*#%! i knew this was gonna happen and then we heard water starting to flow down the top of the elevator shaft heading down towards the top of the elevator, i thought i was going to die in a 10×10 elevator box but i looked around inside the elevator and did not see any water trickling in through any cracks inside the elevator i was puzzled as to why the water didnt just start pouring inside this elevator. And then BAM! I woke up scard out of my mind. Take Note i have never ever even as much as felt a drop of water in all these tsunami dreams i’ve had for years, and i never have been hurt in these dreams, nor has anyone else in the dream i was with at that time. DOes this dream sound familliar to anyone, please contact me priderock1@HOTMAIL.COM I have something else to tell everybody here but i will say it in another post later it may be whats causing all of this in my opinion this is only my opinion.

-1.            November 2, 2007 at 1:05 am e Quincy,
I cannot tell you how much my heart goes out to you. I thought mine were full-on but I can’t believe you’d had them for so long – I think it throws alot in the face of those who claim dreams largely relate to sensory data. I wish we could know more. No doubt there are those with theories aplenty about it but there’s something about these dreams that make me think they stretch beyond anything that science or ‘conventional’ psychology can explain.
I had my first tsunami dream in a long time last night. Normally I am launched straight into the panic, but last night I was quietly sitting on a bench on top of a hill, looking at a sea I knew wasn’t the most beautiful in the world (the weather was a little grey), but I was alone and at peace and knew that I could be there as long as I wanted, whenever I wanted. There was a small hut behind me with wooden benches inside in case the weather got really bad, and I knew that people who wanted a break to enjoy life as simply as possible would make their way there for a day or two and then leave. But that spot, in essence, was mine.
I was just making my way to meet a teacher for a meeting (I am an assistant language teacher in Japan), when it started to creep. My waking life, at this point, started to interact with my dream life as I knew exactly what was happening. I was filled with a feeling of ‘not this again’, followed by ‘but what if I don’t get out of this one?’ I did, needless to say, but Quincy I share with you a deep fear of the sea, and particularly at night.
You know the really stupid thing? When I showed up to meet my teacher soaking wet, I couldn’t find the language to tell him I’d fought with and survived a tsunami – a Japanese word!!!

-1.            November 6, 2007 at 2:23 pm e Tsunami dreams 
I had another one of these last night. It seems to me that it is the third one or so I’ve had in the past two years…
The first one was that I was driving in a car with a passenger when all of a sudden, the sea rose high up on the horizon, like miles into the sky, blocking out the sun…and of course the sea formed into an ugly curling wave coming down, right before me. In the first dream I and my aquantance survived the wave, being tossed around just a bit…but we spent days roaming what seemed to be a desolate wasteland before finally coming upon a kind of Red cross center for survivors, where they gave us coffee and they had a dozen or so computers set up so that we could email our relatives.
My second dreams was actually a series of horrifying dreams one after another in which the sea repetedly rose up into a giant wave and crashed down on me, killing me each time…and then I would be another person, somewhere else along that same shore…yikes, the dream went on and on.
So last night I had a bunch of really weird dreams…they went on and on…and then, the last one, a hugh wave curled up…and again I was in a car, but this time with a bunch of egotistical arrogant bastards…I hated them all, the Goddam fuckheads! Anyway, the guy to my right said, “don’t worry, the wave will not reach us…” And then the Goddam thing curled itself up all the way to the sky, and I said, “How about now, will that part reach us” He was silent as we all braced for our immenent doom, but I for my own part had the small satisfaction of at least knowing that all those arrogant bastards would soon be drowning with the rest of us…

-1.            November 18, 2007 at 5:47 am e So far i have had 2 dreams about tsunami’s. The first one i had i thought was just because i recently took a trip to the beach. The sea was particularly rough the week me and my friends were there, and i got washed up by a wave a few times. Sometimes during high tide, the water rose up the beach and soaked our towels and we had to run our cell phones and bags inland to prevent damage. 
In my first dream i was in a swimming pool at a hotel. You could see the beach from the shore, and while we were sitting on the edge of the pool, i saw a giant wave coming inland. My friends and I (the same girls who were at the beach) ran inside the glass lobby, hoping to escape the tsunami, but the windows were crashed by the waves and I woke up, not knowing what happened. 
The second dream i was at the beach by the boardwalk. I don’t really remember who i was with, besides that i was with friends. Again, i saw the tsunami coming and started to run to our car in the parking lot. It must not have been too bad because the water didn’t reach our car and we were all safe. The weird thing was… in this dream i was wondering if it had any connection to my previous tsunami dream. Finally, before waking up, i concluded the dream i had about a tsunami in the swimming pool was a premonition of this one. I woke up feeling strange and terrified. I looked here to get some questions answered about why i have been having these dreams, but its weird. None of these “spiritual awakenings” or “emotional turmoils” seem to apply to my current situation. Next time though, maybe i’ll try to face the wave.

-1.            December 1, 2007 at 11:27 pm e my son and I have been having tsunami visions during the day. He only told me of his a few weeks ago. He’s concerned and keeps asking to leave the area we are in (coast). We are actually moving in early 2008, up north, away from the coast. Last night, I had a dream instead of a daytime vision. Not sure why this is happening, wondering if it’s instinct letting us all know that something is about to happen to upper east coast usa/canada? Comet Holmes has been interesting. If something hit it, is it headed this way? An asteroid field? Very vivid… but I have had tsunami dreams since I was perhaps 5 or 6 years old, before I could even know about the water receding from the shoreline first, which happened in even the younger aged dreams. Back then, I was older in my dreams, with a child with me when the tsunami hit, but I have 3 children, not just the one in the dream. But… in my younger-age dreams, I am not ‘me’ in the dreams, and I think the area was New Jersey, based on pictures that look like the area in the younger dreams. In tonight’s dream, it was me, at the age I am now, in Massachusetts. I’m glad we’re moving. I can’t shake this feeling that something is going to happen to the east coast of the USA/Canada. Could just be the emotion/dream aspect, too, but my mind keeps telling me it’s gut instinct – and to move away from the coast. We aren’t moving just because of the tsunami dreams, there’s other reasons and we’re just happy to be moving to the area of the USA we’re going to. Don’t want to cause panic here – just logical action, keep an eye on your waking world and perhaps trust your dreams to be your best guide. Maybe sometimes the dreams aren’t just the mind’s way of sorting out the emotional turmoil of life, maybe sometimes dreams are instinct at work? Who knows. My dreams aren’t always ‘right’, or accurate predictions, but on the tsunami ones, I get the distinct mental and physical feeling that this is more than just a ‘dream.’ Especially with the eerie confessions of my son about his own visions, which really freaked me out, because he didn’t know of my own daytime visions. Something is different this time – and I think everyone who ended up here on this blog understands. Thanks for the initial posts on it.

-1.            December 2, 2007 at 3:13 pm e Last night I had my first dream of a tsunami, and it was just as you described at the top of this page. I was standing on the veranda of a hotel or resort waiting for a tsunami. I never actually saw it, even though I did not turn away, but I somehow knew that it was coming. Before this dream, I had three dreams in the last week all about flooding. I guess we will see what happens.

-1.            December 4, 2007 at 7:33 am e I just had two tsunami dreams last night. I don’t feel like i’m in any great emotional turning point in my life. The first one, i was on the beach with my best friend, and we heard there was a tsinami warning, so for some reason we wanted to go to the beach and play. We tried to jump over the waves, but then they got so big we had to run away to the car and try to outrun it.
The next was with my future family. We had two little girls and a house on the beach. We heard about the tsunami warning, but we had a friend over, and i took her home. When i got back, i could see the waves coming closer and closer, so i made everyone climb to the attic. Once it was over, the window was open and i could see that it was lukewarm, bubbley water, not freezing cold, and that it was cerulean blue. I wanted to go swimming in it. It was weird.

-1.            December 7, 2007 at 5:56 am e I live in India and I saw the Dec 2004 tsunami from the balcony of our sea facing house. I didnt see the first set of waves (the most destructive) but saw the second. My mom woke me up because there were lagoons on the beach (that werent normally there) and the next thing you know the water just started coming in all the way to the road. I remember seein a fairly large wave coming and breaking very close to the shore. I had no idea that it would come all the way to the road. 
anyway
in the last two weeks alone, i have had two tsunami dreams. they were very different from one another and nothing like my memory of the actual tsunami. The only commonality between the two was the the vantage point (my balcony). my first dream was fairly short. I stand on my balcony staring out at the sea as i usually do and suddenly see a slightly larger than normal wave move closer and break at the point where the water meets the sand. the tide then comes surging in across the road and into my garden and ground floor. In the second dream I go out on the the balcony and I notice that there are people standing on the water, then I see that the tide has receded till the horizon (leaving large shallow lagoons behind) and then comes surging back in the form of a large wave.
these dreams dont scare me or make me less comfortable about living next to the sea. they fascinate me because of how real it looks.
The pacific tsunami warning center website is one i check everyday…. its very accurate and usually gives you specific warnings for your region, when an earthquake occurs it tells you whether a tsunami might have been generated, if one had been generated and approximately what time it will hit your region. its good to keep your mind at peace http://www.prh.noaa.gov/ptwc/

-1.            December 7, 2007 at 3:48 pm e I had three tsunami dreams last night, one after the other. I was at a mountain cabin that looked down the mountain at the ocean, there was no beach, just mountains dropping into the ocean. I looked out the cabin window and saw the water receeding. In the first dream I went down to the beach created by the receeding water, touched the sand, then panicked because I realized the water was receeding because it was a tsunami. In the second dream I was on the porch of the cabin and saw the water receeding really fast and I ran inside before the water came flooding back. In the third dream I was in the house watching the water from the window. In all three dreams the water flooded back toward the cabin and I always made it inside. The third dream I was holding my daughter and we watched sea turtles swim past the window. 
After I woke this morning I’ve been in the greatest mood, and have had lots of energy.
Very trippy. I hope I have the same dream tonight.

-1.            December 15, 2007 at 7:08 am e I had a dream last night about a tsunami – I was standing on cliffs with my partner enjoying the view – it was our home. We went high into the mountains and the water never reached us. At the top we shared our safety with others.
My partner of four years is leaving me to go travel for a year, and I believe this dream is related. I also think that a spiritual awakening is occuring – as is true at every new phase of life.
To all of you who dream: pay close attention as your dreams are a transparent window to the Self. They mean exactly what you think they mean – so please choose wisely.
Thank you for this site – I found great comfort from it today!

-1.            December 16, 2007 at 8:45 am e i had one of at least three tsunami dreams this morning. i was at some type of park or resort. for some reason i was able to move where the tsunami wasn’t. i woke up feeling very mentally and emotionally drained. my interpretation is that of some type of mental or spiritual surge, however, my ever skeptical husband was demonstrating dismay over the possibility of the dream being prophetic. i on the other hand wandered if it could have been from a past life.i feel an eerieness surrounding the dream. its too real.

-1.            December 17, 2007 at 8:51 am e I am so happy I found this site ! I thought I was the only one. Is it not strange though that so many people world wide dream the same thing ? I started having tsunami dreams about 15 years ago and have about 5 a year depending on how busy I am. I usually find I have them more often in times of stress. Generally I am inside a house or flat and see the water coming to the window. Sometmes I am outside in a city running between the buildings while the water is just behind me. I used to love the sea and swimming but lately I sense a feeling of extreme panic when I am near the sea and see high waves. I still make myself go into the sea and swim as i do not want to give in to this unrational fear however last time I did I felt almost sick with fear.

-1.            January 5, 2008 at 12:36 am e I’ve had tsunami dreams twice in the last three nights. I’m with some friends in town (and I live miles from the sea) and we see a tsunami coming. So I get everyone to tie themselves to a tree. The wave crashes over us and then I cut the rope and we swim up and find ourselves on top of the wave riding it. It’s an intense feeling.

-1.            January 9, 2008 at 4:50 am e five years I have been having this dream it varies and goes away for a couple of months. The first dream ever I still remember clearly I dreamed god actually spoke to me in a stick figure shape yes I know sounds pretty crazy. I just rememeber it so vividly because I remember crying to him the thing is I’m not what you would call an avid church-goer!!! Now I’m cautious to even get in a pool. I’m so sure that is the way I’m going to die one day and to make things worse everything placed I have moved to in the past year is on the waterfront that has tsunami warning signs everywhere!!! So,I’m very happy I found this website I’m not the only weirdo out there.

-1. January 12, 2008 at 1:33 pm e I always have tsunami dreams. I see them coming and we all grab onto things like trees or roofs and hold on as it hits. it washes over us and wipes out huge areas but I survive. Its so scary though as every time we only just survive. I have this dream at least once a week.

-1. January 23, 2008 at 7:30 am e I have been dreaming of 350-400 foot tsunamis for about 6 months now. It has always been really scary, but I always wake up just before the waves break right above me. Last night was different though…for the first time, I didn’t wake up. The wave broke and sucked me into it. My first thought was that I was going to die, and I excepted that, so I just let it take me. I didn’t struggle, I just tumbled over and over in the water. I felt completly calm, like I had let something go. Next thing I know I’m lying on the ground surrounded by all the other people that had survived. I had made it…for the first time in 6 months. I went on to dream about more tsunamis for the rest of the night, but they we’re more exciting than terrifying. I hope this means I have broken through some unknown barrier in my life, and it’s nice to know I’m not the only one out there that dreams of these!!

-1. January 29, 2008 at 10:28 pm e I had one. I was on vacation, looking at all the people on the beach, via my sliding glass door.
I noticed the waves were picking up, slow at first and then violent… the tide went way way way in and then, it formed. The giant wall of water. It was so massive there was no escape. I stood and watched in amazment, and total calmness (no fear). Then I woke up… I’m in-between getting over a previous/serious relationship and trying to start a new one with a “better” person… I think the “tsunami dream” is my brain telling me “I’m finally free”…

-1. February 20, 2008 at 12:29 am e I had a tsunami dream last night. It does not have something to do with emotions, since I am not going through anything right now. In the dream, I was trying to have a meal with my cousin and mother, when I noticed that a strong wave was coming. My cousin and I climbed onto a tree, but she fell when the wave came. Luckily, I managed to hold on to her skirt such that she did not fall heavily, and I “magically” slid down with her. The water level was not so high. We then went to the other side of the resort and climbed another tree there. The situation came back to normal. People were trying to get their meal again, but we stayed on the tree wondering all the while where my mother was, since we lost her in the tumult. I woke up then.

So tired of it.. I am now scare of ocean,it’s affecting my life, I remember the images through out the day.. and I wonder if is a past life memory or a premonition?
A spiritual awakening for over 20 years.. I am not sure about it..It could be…

now the waives I getting bigger and bigger now the size is massive, they are taking over the city, some how I aways know before anyone else, I tried to get away, run or go somewhere high. aways with my dogs and family… some times I just watch from far…
And I wonder, what the big massive rock wall has to do with it..

I’m 5 months pregnant with my first child (a boy!) so I’m sure there’s alot of emotion, conscious and subconscious going on there.

-1. Lissa Says:

-1. March 17, 2008 at 1:02 pm e Last night was the first time I have ever had a tsunami dream, but it was one of the most horrificly realistic and terrifying dreams I have ever had. It followed a bad night I had with the guy I am dating, so I am naturally inclined to blame him for it.
In my dream I was surfing with my 3 best girlfriends (and we don’t surf in real life- we live in Texas, but we do snowboard every Christmas). And we were getting really great waves, and it was a beautiful day and we were having a great time. Then gradually, the waves started getting bigger and bigger, and the next thing I knew we were staring up at this massive, sun-blocking wave that must have shot up hundreds and hundreds of yards. 
My 3 friends were all excited about riding it, and I was the only one who seemed to realize that there was no way we could survive. The fear I felt in the realization that death was moments away was unlike any kind of fear I have ever had- in real life or in a dream. It was the most overwhelmingly intense feeling I have ever had in a dream- so much that I had to look up online what others had to say. I don’t believe there is any kind of spiritual awakening about to happen because I woke up in a cold sweat and in a panic. I hope never to experience anything that intense ever again while trying to sleep =(

-1. March 22, 2008 at 1:29 am e I just had this dream last night; the description is below. Please forgive the brokenness of it; I copied the IM to my partner to post.
I had a really deep dream last night a beautiful dream I was up on a hilltop a beautiful sunset far from the ocean – although close enough that if the distant mountains weren’t there I’d barely be able to see it I kept seeing massive waves, way off in the distance, poking up behind the mountains beautiful pink, purple and slate blue sky, like sunset the waves were hypnotizingly beautiful deep, rich grey blue I kept trying to point them out to people no one paid attention they looked right where I pointed but couldn’t see them I said, right there, under the big purple cloud and the three smaller darker purple clouds. I told you, and you couldn’t see them but you believed me
we stayed up on the mountain then you wanted to go into town I told you not to, but you said that the waves have been there for a while and nothings happened you went then I saw the beautiful massive waves come up over the mountains they washed over everything in slow motion it was terrible but mostly beautiful at the same time but I was terrified for you I tried to call you on the cell phone but all I could hear in it was water you made it to safety but just barely and although before I woke up I didn’t see you again in my dream, I knew you were ok; we talked with our hearts everyone was freaking out acting like it was such a surprise
but I knew it was coming! I tried to tell people I wasn’t freaking out; I was just watching the colors and in awe of the power and beauty of the water I started walking down the mountain and the ocean had come all the way to it; it was like where there used to be a town was now a beautiful lake, reflecting pinks and purples it was still and fresh and beautiful that’s why I feel so good today, that dream
all the people who were selfish and busy and not paying attention, all the dirt of the town, all the stress and worry and money and illness and fear just got washed up by this beautiful amazing wave it wasn’t destruction, there were some people left. it was cleansing even when the wave came, it didn’t destroy things… it just washed over it, gently and massively.
I’ve felt so calm and peaceful all morning, and I have been very stressed out and tired up until last night.

March 22, 2008 at 2:55 pm e I had a tsunami dream last night and i could see the monsterous body of water peaking hundreds of feet infront of me and i was in a house just looking at this thing, i diddnt try to run, i was fascinated by it, i felt a very nervous feeling of death but i was not afraid, as the water broke over the house and the windows crashed in and i was invincible, standing there. it was very cool. and a few months ago i had a tsunami dream where i was just on a beach watching the monsterous wave peak, and as it crashed down i automatically jumped to a different dreaming scenario

-1. March 22, 2008 at 4:04 pm e I had a dream last night about a tsunami (my first one. I was walking down the street somewhere, talking on my cell phone with my ex boyfriend. Suddenly, I saw hoards of people running, saying a tsunami was coming. I started running too. I was running fast and was confident I would beat it. To my ex, I was saying “Look, there is a tsunami approaching, I am running from it, and this might be the last you hear from me.” Then, suddenly, a huge, huge wave towered over me. It was inevitable I was about to die. I didn’t experience death in the dream… things just froze. But there was no way out. Scary!

-1. Cristina Says:

-1. April 2, 2008 at 2:51 am e Oh my. I had a dream about a tsunami just like yours…sort of. I was in an apartment in the beach…i was looking out the balcony when all of the sudden i see this huge wave coming at me ( like the one you see in the movie “Poseidon”) and i was just staring at it and then me and all my family just started to run to the highest floor in the building. Luckily, we made it safely.
I have no idea what it means….but reading your blog…i guess it could mean that new things will “wash away” the old things in my life.
If that is the case…I hope it does.
I’ve had dreams of big waves before…but none this close to it…or terrifying.
Wow…i feel like Eli Stone.

-1. April 3, 2008 at 12:40 pm e This early morning I had a dream of Tsunami striking shore 3 times in a row. Each time the intensity increases. I was there at the shore shaking up people along the shore of the approaching Tsunami and many realise at the neck of the moment. Fortunatly the beach has large sand and we stand far distance and first one strikes us. We then start to rush further far and then i see a road side flower shopkeeper with lot of color full flowers getting sweeped with the wave. but by then I was long far from (2km) the natural shore. Yet the third tsunami wave was powerfull to come all the till there. nothing happened to me after the wave.

-1. Mich Says:

-1. April 8, 2008 at 7:15 am e I have had the Tsunami dream a dozen times. Last night (its very piecey) There was a tsunami coming and me and a group of strangers (I think) one woman had a baby, we are standing on the top of a cliff. I’m insisting that the wave is going to reach us and they stand there thinking its not going to rise up high enough. Some they realize it will hit us and we take off in cars to higher ground. The wave comes often, but I always just get away. The group and I are in a tall, narrow tower and the wave rises up and hits the tower, causing it to sway back and forth but not fall. The water is an eerie dark blue with green, more like a blob. I never actually get hit, I always just get away from it. 
THe woman with the baby is interesting to me, I don’t know who this woman is. She keeps her baby under her jacket. She has just given birth. Its strange because I interchange with her character, feeling the pain of just giving birth, and then seeing her as a seperate character.

-1. April 9, 2008 at 1:34 am e I seem to be having these tsunami dreams on the regular now. The same dream that you had about being in the hotel room and seeing the tsunami unfold before you is what I saw as well. Lastnight I had a dream that I was in a someones condo and the tsunami was coming for me and everyone else that was with me. This time it actually went went over us sucked us in and we still survived. I saw two tsunami’s back to back. It was scary as hell and fasinating at the same time. Strangely enough the tsunami’s are always really black almost tar like and it’s always night time in the dream. The only spirtual change I would say about myself now is that I’m reading up on different religions. I don’t really see the connection though. I do however feel strongly about someone I just met and I don’t think they feel the same way about me anymore because I screwed up. I feel horrible about this so I guess maybe the tsunami represents all the feeling I have bottled up maybe?

-1. April 9, 2008 at 11:02 am e I had a tsunami dream last night and it was one of the most vivid dreams I have ever had – and frightening too.
I was on holiday with my family and watched as wave that seemed a mile high came from all directions. I lost my wife and one of my children while the youngest child and I tried to escape to safety.
There was no getting away though as we were trapped by waves on all sides. I awoke just as the biggest wave enveloped us.
I know instinctively that the world is going through great changes. I am afraid in case this is a literal dream.
Something big will come over the next few years anyhow. That is for sure.

-1. April 12, 2008 at 6:25 am e I coincidently dreamt with a Tsunami tonight ( a very vivid dream – which is rare to me) and as I found this page today I thought of making a record of it: I was playing with 4-5 elephants in the sea. After what seemed to be a very long (and fun)time, they all left to the open sea. After they left, 4-5 waves, which kept getting bigger and bigger, came to me. The last wave was a Tsunami, but I felt incredbly calm and happily dived into it… No interpretations yet – but will let you know if this proved to be a “vision”

-1. Tide Says:

-1. April 16, 2008 at 12:03 am e I have been Tsunami dreams for the past 2 years.
The last one was this morning and I was in a house, near the ocean and could see the tsunami approaching while I was walking outside at the garden.
At that moment I went inside but I could see the wave from the window of my living room… Different from other dreams, this time the arrival of the gigantic tidal wave made me scared. At the moment it broke the window I tried to wake up for fear of drowning.
I am not sure but every time I dream about tsunamis I end up having to endure changes in my life that require a lot of mental and spiritual energy.

-1. sasha Says:

-1. April 26, 2008 at 7:50 am e The scenarios in my tsunami dreams are always changing. At times I am at the beach, out in the middle of the city, or in a room with no way out. Only one thing never changes, the size of the waves. I usually see them coming from far away. They are mountains of angry water barreling toward me from the dark sea. The height of the initial wave is similar to the one in the movie deep impact. I usually manage to get away from the first wave, but I don’t think I have ever run that far or driven to get away from it. I simply find a strategic place to hide, hold on to something, or climb somewhere high. Every time I see the wave, the feeling of inevitable death comes over me and I am prompted to save my mom first and foremost. The waves keep on coming one after the other, only giving me enough time to realize my fears even more. I have these dreams every single night. Currently I live in the bay area, and with the predicted big earthquake, my tsunami fears are becoming an actual real life threat. I have had dreams where I am unable to get away from the water and I am engulfed by it. I actually die slowly underwater, no pain, just a though: “its all over, there I go, its filling my lungs now”. In a way it is peaceful. However, when such dreams do occur, I usually wakeup very disturbed, upset, and have a deep internal heaviness inside my chest. I have had that exact thought before in real life when I was three years old. My father had taken me out for a dip in the sea, and had somehow managed to loose me in the water. I of course, could not swim at the time. All I can remember is hurdling underwater thinking the very same thoughts and being at peace with it.
They say these dreams are prompted by your conscious, a problem or change that you must face and admit to yourself and others. For me personally, I do have one secret that is corroding my life, and by not voicing it, I consciously know that I am taking my life in an unwanted direction. I know that I am not ready to face this cognitive dissonance in real life just yet. However, if I can regain control in my dreams, I will try to face the waves and perhaps embrace them.
To all of you who experience similar dreams, I would first suggest changing your sleeping place. Make sure you are not sleeping by a stream or any type of water source. Also, I am about to attempt hypnosis therapy for these dreams. Perhaps I will be able to express myself more in an unconscious state of mind.

I don’t think I’ve ever dreamt of a tsunami before… I was in a empty white room, with huge windows, and that’s where I saw the hige wave from, very dark blue water… I never thought of getting swept away, I only thought of how I would try to get air once the room was full of water…
It was so weird.

-1. May 5, 2008 at 11:55 pm e I keep having these tsunami dreams. I think I have had about 10 maybe..at first I didn’t think much of it..but now I think its kinda creepy that I have so many. I’m never really all that scared in the dreams..but I allways try to runn away from it. the thing is..its always many tsunamis. we run up..then after i while we go down again..and then we see a new one coming..and we run for it again. sometimes they come even when we allredy are up and safe..and we watch them..they are really big too. usually there is a lot of other wierd stuff going on, like we are at a hotel or a camping. often there is a lot of people I dont know, and some of my family. they never get hurt though.
So you think I should just npt think more about it? I dont mind them, really. but since I have them so often I was wondering if they ment something.

-1. May 8, 2008 at 4:46 pm e I had 4 tsunami dreams last year in sequence, probably over the space of a month. I knew they were big important dreams when I woke up because they were so clear and vivid. 
Three were similar, the last one different. I was standing on some dunes near the sea and i saw the crest of a huge blue wave over the top of the dune – the crest kept getting taller and I realize that a huge wave is bearing down upon me and would go completely over the dune and wash me away. I start to run. I outrun the wave or escape in each of the three dreams.
In my waking life at the time I wondered what the dreams meant. I had not found this blog. I combed dream dictionaries, asked people, did internet searches. What everything seemed to say at the time was that water represented emotions, and that I was running from feeling my emotions. I was in a new relationship with a girl whom I was deeply in love with, but felt something holding me back from being fully open and letting go with her on a very deep level: fear, anxiety, uncertainty. Part of me thought that the relationship wouldn’t last because we had significant differences – age, background, upbringing. But part of me knew the power of love, and I was in love with the girl and really wanted the relationship to last.
I decided that if I had another big wave dream I wouldn’t run from the wave but stand and face it to see what would happen.
The final wave dream started as the previous 3 had, with me standing on a dune, however this time i was with my girlfriend’s sister. (This is strange because i waking life I have very little interaction with her sister at all.)I see the wave and we begin running away from it, but I stop and decide to face it. I see my girlfriend’s sister keep running until she vanishes from sight. I turn around and face the huge wave, a little scared, but putting myself at the wave’s mercy. I am blank as to what happens next. I know I get hit with the wave, but I have no feeling or memory of what happens next.
Strangely, those dreams seemed to indicate a big emotional cleansing or change to come in my life. Just over six months after that last dream, I broke up with the girl I still love. I began to see the relationship with new clear eyes and knew that it wasn’t right and had no future. It was such a hard decision to make and a very painful decision to give her up, to stand and face the reality without running away or hiding. I think facing the wave in my dream helped me face the reality in my realtionship.
Immediately after making that decision and breaking up with the girl, however, I began to have second thoughts. I attempted to reconcile with her and she agreed, however her sister (the one who I had little contact with – the one in the dream) convinced her not to reconcile with me.
So I guess even the dream sister had something to tell me too – if she hadn’t run away so fast!
And now with the pain of the breakup, and the recovery from it I am still experiencing, i feel cleansed in a way. But sore. Kind of like I was knocked about and tumbled by a big wave inside.

Somehow i can relate to other people here but mine is a little bit different..
As far as i can remembered, i have this tsunami dreams 3-4 times and it started last month, 3-4 times same settings (community) but different people.its just that with different sequel (lol) thrice,it shows that im the saviour of helpless people that find it hard to escape the ranging water from afar and onetime in my tsunami dream while the tsunami is forming and ravaging far cities, wild creatures appears at the sametime while we try to eliminate this creatures coz they eat people alive. 
maybe it triggers to what happened to my fiancee a month ago- she had miscarriage and upto this time we were not yet adjusted and everytime we saw someone with a child or a baby and stared us, a tear coming from our eyes quickly falls and it wont stop.
thats it..
maybe it could help…

My turn…
I just woke up after a tsunami dream, the second time I’ve had one. The last time was a couple of years ago I guess.
First I got caught in a tsunami with my friends, we were hanging around in a boat, suddnely this wave came. The pressure of the water and the impact was unbearable painful and it knocked me out. I woke up in a hospital,seemed like I was suffering some major injuries compared to my friends. Seems like they survived, but I didn’t really see them. Another Tsunami hit the hospital during my stay.
Next I was walking around, it was winter and water everywhere. I met a strange girl who wanted to be my friend, she said she had seen me around and gave me something so I could return it to her the next time we met. Thinking she as being weird, I said “you’ll never come back” several times to her, but she kept on insisting and left me with that thing. She didn’t look familiar at all.
I was visiting my a friend at a tall appartment, suddenly these tida waves was striking the town. For some reason I was alone that time. The last wave was huge beyond reason. It was crushing the buildning and I heard people outside saying goodbye to eachother. This time I was sure I was going to die and the crushing feeling of the water was terrifying.
The small room was crumbling, suddenly some people were after me. Somehow I felt it was a bad person, then another one rushed along, dragged me away into safety somehow. The next thing I know is that the town is covered in mud, I see this poor man covered in mud gasping for air.
Thus I woke up!
I feel very weird right now. In both dreams the tsunamis were quite non-stop and I’m in a tall buildning just looking at the waves getting higher and higher. This dream I really got caught by the wave.
One reason I think I’m having this dream is because of the recent earthquake in China. One of my classmates lost two of his bestfriends. And I had some problems with family last year and some very personal family matters early March.
What’s up wth these never ending waves?

-1.    May 26, 2008 at 9:58 pm e Really interesting- a lot of these dreams seem to be about people running away from emotions. I had my second tsunami dream last night, this one was almost in slow motion – happened in a big city and I can remember seeing the wave as tall as 3 skyscrapers. I was less scared in this dream compared to the first time – just seemed inevitable that I would be swept away although I did start to run away to pick my brother up. Strange! It is interesting what Jung says about Tsunami dreams being one of the collective-consciousness dreams. We know about tsunamis all over the world now but I wonder if people had dreams like this before they were widely known about?

-1.    June 9, 2008 at 1:27 pm e I have been having these dreams for awhile now, It always scares me in the begining, because I see everyone around me panicing. I see the ocean get sucked back and the wave become incredibly high; although, when it crashes down I always seem to be right in front of it like it is pushing me along. I never get sucked in. The wave has even passed over me and pulled back. This happens at least three times in each dream. I really don’t know what to make of it.

-1.    June 16, 2008 at 11:33 am e Well this seems to be a Tsunami Dream forum! Thanks for keeping the link active, it makes it a great way to connect ones own experience with so many others.
I had what i can recall as my first Tsunami dream 2 mornings ago, at around 7am after sleeping in(i usually get up at 5-6am) it was preceded by a dream of me on a country road: i felt i was in a somewhat dishevelled state and remember looking aross the road from one side and seeing a shoe that i wanted to retrieve. All of a sudden the wind started to pick up and very quickly a tornando sprung up in the short distance to my left and i didnt feel scared but i wanted to get away from the tornado and remember wondering what my chances were for surviving it. I awoke from that dream and went to the toilet then came back to bed and dozed off, then i was in a unit or hotel and was looking out the balcony vista from the lounge room like i was walking to another room and glanced out the balcony doors at the sky. Except it was a tsunami that i saw coming toward the building there was no sky, i remember not feeling any fear and was prepared to accept the situation as it was. I did wonder though if i was going to be alright after it because i was inside and thought of all the people outside and felt i was in some way lucky. After reading Jung’s analysis im inclined to accept this as a reasonable interpretation. This morning i noticed a definite change in my internal dialogue and motivation. I have started to change my internal mode of identification to that of something that was already there but now i reflect on it it had become covered, overshadowed by other more materialistic identifications. I feel more relaxed and confident that my new more focused concept of myself is all i need to be happy and successful and that i had created my previous anxiety and bottling up through a calculated misconception of my self based on the fear of and lack of faith in this new/old me. I hope that i can maintain this new perspective, otherwise ill have to wait for the next Tsunami! But in all seriousness my experience in these subtle matters we gain glimpses of what we need/want to be and then the ‘real’ work to attain it begins.

-1.    June 24, 2008 at 7:06 pm e i get many tsunami dreams like once a month it does happen and mostly after waking up i just patiently try to remember the whole dream again.
I do not see my self drown in each dream. But im in hotel/house/palace/podium in every dream. I see people being swept by water except me watching them.
I have tried to understand what do these dreams mean is it a message or is it in my sub-consious mind something to do with past lives histroy..
cause each time i wake up from these dreams i just wonder. It is amazing to get these dreams but i need to know their meaning.Just yesterday again i had a dream that im standing in a verandah situated near the sea and there is a Tsunami
Last month i dreamt im in a house and the tsunami is reaching us to hit the window and im bolting all the doors and windows and the wave passes the house without harming me in it.
I wish someone could explain me.

-1.    July 8, 2008 at 10:26 am e I recently had a dream:
In the dream I was back home (I’m in college right now) in my house at the back door and a few people who I no longer remember came to the back door which was locked and I was standing inside. I knew that there was a bad spirit in them and I refused to open the door I began to pray and could not remember the hail mary which I’ve always known (I went to a Catholic school) then behind me my great grandma appeared and all of a sudden I remembered the prayer. The people left and then my great grandma was gone. As soon as that happened a rising phoenix appeared outside the house rising from flames and ashes into the sky and diving back down and then a huge tsunami wave came crashing toward the door I stood my ground and continued my prayer and felt a huge mental surge as if it protected my home and the crashing wave did no damage, and after that I woke up. So I’ve been trying to understand all of this. I had a huge turnaround in life a few days later (today and yesterday).

-1.            July 14, 2008 at 1:30 pm e I had a dream a few days ago. Some people in front of my house asked if they could launch their boat in the lake accross the street. There is a pond across from my house. I told them that of course, everyone boats there. Soon afterward I saw a wave of mountainess proportion coming toward me from the vicinity of the pond. I wasn’t afraid. I immediately new that this was it for me as I was engourged. I didn’t feel I was drowning but my thinking was that the emense pressure of the water instantly caused my death. Ok so now I’m dead yet I seem to be fine and doing some kind of busy work. I have never had this type of dream and I am 54. My instincts tell that is not an archetypical symbolism but perhaps a trailer for 2012. Dreams don’t always need interpretation

-1.            July 14, 2008 at 8:15 pm e I’ve had several tsunami dreams before and I already forgot them–except the one that I had early this morning. It showed me having a light talk with our neighbors outside our house (in my hometown) because our street suddenly had to had some excavation done for irrigation purposes (another change that happened in the dream!). While standing right before it with some other onlookers out of curiosity, I shifted my glance to another direction.
Alas! In what used to be a ricefield before appeared a gleaning, active sea!!!
I could see the waves strongly hit the rocky beach and I admired the bright colorful emerald-sky-blue color of the water. Then all of a sudden…. a tsunami!!!
I became numb as I saw it approaching.. coming close to a little hill behind our newly-built house (which is really newly-built). I felt the whole scene going slow-mo as I looked at my mom
and tried to find a way to tie us two together just in case we get engulfed in the gigantic wave..
It was weird and scary at the same time. The wall of water didn’t look like a grayish monster
but a bright cheerful blue enormous wave that came upon us. I think we survived… but I don’t know
how the scene ended.

-1.            July 20, 2008 at 3:56 pm e Finally, another tsunami dream from me. In this dream I was at home, in the front room which overlooks a headland and the ocean. The tsunami crashed right into our front window. I grabbed my baby girl to save her, and looked around for the baby Bjorn to attach her to me, but couldn’t find it. I ended up carrying her in my arms but she was slippery and hard to hold on to. My other children had to fend for themselves, and they are only 2.5. My husband was there somewhere also. 
The wave crashed over us but did not drown us, we ended up in the back yard being thrown about.
I woke up and decided to go to a church with some lively music. 
I have been feeling irritable and stressed lately, but today I’m just chasing the children around and making them giggle hysterically.
It did make me wonder – what would happen if there was a real emergency situation and it was only me – could I save the children? Scary thought…

-1.            July 23, 2008 at 8:59 am e I came upon this site looking for the meaning of a recurring tsunami dream.
Please let me start by saying I am a Metaphysica/Spritualist. I am an intuitive psychic who does not read for profit, I do readings only in sacred space (My Church mostly) and am studying past life regression. I only bring that up as I am normally able to interrupt
messages for spirit which I feel is the origin of each and every dream.
In my dream I am always close to the shore line, usually with one or two other people, who I cannot identify, and a few other beach goers scattered around. Suddenly the body of water also unidentified (but I live on the Gulf of Mexico) rushes far far away from the shore line so fast it
leaves behind sealife and misc debris.
My companions and I rush for higher ground watching thi great wall of water quickly approaching. We reach the highest elevation we can fi. The wave breaks and the surf come to our location lapping at our feet.
I do recal a simular recurring dream as a child where as I would be sucked out the ride safely back to shore on this gigantic wave.
Does anyone have some insight for me???
Thank!!

-1.            July 27, 2008 at 6:55 pm e My dream is strangely similar to Sonia’s dream only 6 days ago.
On Friday, July 25th, 2008, I was interviewed by the President of my company for a position as Regional Vice President.
That night (this morning) I had a dream involving a tsunami . . .
I’m standing in my house (but it’s not my house) looking out a window to a large river. Suddenly a large tsunami-like wave comes rolling down the river and crashes through the window. The muddy water fills up my house. Instinctively I look for and find my 2 year old daughter and find her. I am able to wade through the house, carrying my daughter to safety on shore. The tsunami washes away my house entirely. I then find myself in a farmers market of sorts, on the shore of the river, amongst people that seem to be completely oblivious to what happened. I carried my daughter through the market and then I woke up.
I wonder what this means. Does this signify the future results of my interview? I’ll try to post something when I find out . . .

-1.            July 30, 2008 at 4:35 pm e Last night I had a dream of a massive tidal wave. I don’t know if it was a tsunami since I never experienced one but I was actually in the water. Being from Florida, knowing how to swim is a necessity. I was taught that if there was a big wave breaking, to either swim over it or under it. In my dream I paused a moment to decide what to do. Since it was so enormous I took a deep breath and swam under it, almost feeling the sand tickling my belly. I came out the other side fine, but there was another one.
I woke up the next day, went to work, and felt a 5.8 earthquake. I live in Cali.

-1.            August 3, 2008 at 11:27 pm e I have had about 4 tsunami dreams within the last year, I live in Brighton on the seafront in a balcony flat and love being near the sea. My most recent tsunami dream was similiar to the others, I see the sea level rise and a swelling, I warn my boyfriend of this and we run the our flat to get away. I’m not overley frightened in these dreams. We get into the flat and see the water flood over the beach sweeping all the people, children, animals and cars away…towards the flat…a big fire engine is coming right at us in the water and smashes through the window. I dont remember any more. 
I felt this dream has strong meaning. I often have odd dreams that seem sattached with some emotions or odd feelings afterwards 
I am currently in a very unstable point in my life. I have not been getting along with my BF, my job is on the line towards possible redundancy and we are struggling with money, also, I go off the rails when out too much sometimes. I dont remember if I was in similair situations when having had these dreams before but i’m going to take them as a warning and try really hard to sort my sh*t out. I don’t think these dreams are to be ignored. Ive learnt a lot about myself and emoitions through my dreams.

Little did i know that your description of your dream is very very similar to how i would describe mine. i was also on a sort of verandah at a hotel facing the beach while knowing that i would be swept away by this wave. the weird thing is about this dream is that i was pushed into the sea rather than pushed away!
clearly i knew that a tsunami dream obviously represented change and something new can you help me with my dream???

-1.            Steve Says:

-1.            August 15, 2008 at 10:25 am e I’ve been having tsunami dreams all my life, but they’ve seemed to increase in frequency over the past few years. I always have the same two kinds of dreams that everyone else here has mentioned — The kind where I’m at the beach and the waves start rolling in higher and higher and the kind where I’m in a building with really large glass windows and I see the water about to smash through. In last night’s dream, I’m at the beach on a cloudy day. (The beach always looks vaguely like the real-life beach where I live in Florida.) I see a guy in his thirties with a young girl who’s probably about twelve or thirteen — They seem to be related, although he seems a little too young to be her father — he almost feels more like her uncle or something. They’re playfully allowing themselves to be pulled north by the really strong current that’s close to the shore, all the while, asking each other bizarre random questions. (The last thing I hear the guy say is, “What do you think of vegetarians?”) I then see an amazing surfer further out. He’s being pulled by a different current that’s moving south at an incredible pace. It’s here that the first wave washes up and hits me at about thigh-high. Not yet realizing that this is a tsunami dream, my first reaction is to move further back so my phone in my pocket doesn’t get wet. This is when the next wave hits at about chest-high and I start to freak out because I’m all the way up by the parking lot of the hotel nearby. I now realize that this is a tsunami dream — only, here’s a weird twist that I’ve never experienced before — As I start to run towards the city with the huge wall of water at my back, a “presence” for lack of a better word, picks me up and starts pulling me higher and higher into the air. I see the planet rushing away from me at a great pace. I get nervous as I’m about to leave the Earth’s atmosphere and wake myself up.
Anyway, just a question for everyone here — Although they’re usually terrifying, do you often find yourself secretly *wanting* the tsunami to come? I’ve noticed that in a lot of my tsunami dreams, I’m almost wishing for it to happen in a weird way.
Also, for future posters — can you mention what state or country you live in? For example, I’m from Florida/USA — I’m curious to see if these dreams are more prevalent for people who live near the ocean or if they happen to everyone regardless of where they live. 
Thanks — It’s nice to see that we’re not alone.

I do have dreams about Tsunami’s, and when I look out over our balcony over seeing the bay area, I always see the beauty,but always wonder, What if a super Tsunami were able to pass the gates of the Golden Gate and the bay bridge. We know that California is prone to Tsunami’s, and we are due for a major Earthquake soon, and I feel movement in the ground a lot, sometimes I can tell when an earthquake is coming, but sometimes I get that uneasy feeling of a tidal wave or a Tsunami. I’ve dreamed that it was a clear and beautiful day and all of a sudden a news interuption comes through on the T.V and Radio and the internet that a Huge earthquake was just felt then we feel the trembler. Then about a few hours later a major alert goes across the immediate Bay Area that a super Tsunami is headed for California, waves spanning over 5 miles high and 2500 miles across, at this time I gather all my family together and we pray like never before,but as this is happening, and the trembling is happening the Damn in Lake Chabot area breaks and nothing but catastrophy is happening, so a Tsunami is coming in from the Ocean and technically one from the Damn cause a mountain of water comes over the neighborhoods and hills behind us and the Super Tsunami is seen from a far. OH MY GOD!!! Then I wake up, or I see parts of the lower level of what’s below us beginning to go under water…Has anyone had this happen?

-1.    August 28, 2008 at 3:29 pm e Hello again!
It’s been about a month since I had my tsunami dream. I haven’t dreamt about it since. In fact, I can’t remember any of my dreams since then. I had previously been interviewed for a big promotion . . . I didn’t get the job. Was the tsunami dream a sign? Not only did I get turned down for the promotion, but due to restructuring I essentially got demoted. Luckily, my pay hasn’t changed, but I’m still feeling upset about it. In the last month my cat almost died, spent $1100.00 to save her, my car broke down, spent $780.00 on that, and my power got shut off by mistake. I now believe that a tsunami dream is a sign, a bad sign for me, but perhaps a sign of changes for others. I’ve been down worse roads before and I know it will get better.
I live 5 hours from Seattle, Washington, in Spokane, very land locked. I’ve never lived by the ocean. Keep posting, this is interesting.

On January 26, 1700, at about 9 p.m. local time, the Juan de Fuca plate beneath the ocean in the Pacific Northwest (near Seattle, WA) suddenly moved, slipping some 60 feet eastward beneath the North American plate in a monster quake of approximately magnitude 9, setting in motion large tsunamis that struck the coast of North America and traveled to the shores of Japan.

Thanks for helping me shed light on what I’m experiencing.

-1.    September 6, 2008 at 6:46 pm e my last tsunami dream was of myself playing with my twins, two boys,(i do not in waking life) (i have two boys though). anyway i leave them to play near the ocean edge with family cousins of similar age around 5 or 6 and go into my house which is atop of a mountain which dose not take me long. as i turn to come out the door the water has risen about a foot below my entrance, fifteen feet from where i left my children. my father goes to dive in but i stop him because i see a hugh whale ( and usually they are friendly but i feel this one is not). the water subsides suddenly and my one of my boys is still there and safe and i find my other boy three days later, alive but not the same.
I never drown in my tsunami dreams and am always ahead of them. usually i see them coming but i didnt see this one.?

-1.    September 23, 2008 at 11:02 am e in the past couple of weeks i have had two tsunami dreams. both have had family (which i was trying to save or get in contact with) and friends ( who were with me ) i have usually been on top of something or in the middle of the ocean. over all the dreams have had an adventurous feeling to them and i wake up somewhat vitalized. i kind of like it!

I had another tsunami dream last night. This time, I’m at the beach with two girls that I haven’t seen since high school. We’re standing at the edge of the parking lot talking about surfing when out of nowhere a wave hits us about chest-high. I turn to one of the girls and say, “This is how my tsunami dreams always start.” At this point I hear a loud rumbling (which I’ve never heard before in a tsunami dream)and look up to see the ocean rising well above the horizon. We turn to run, but I feel like I can’t really move. I wake up here.

-1.    October 7, 2008 at 7:53 am e i had a tsunami dream last night. At first it was a falling star and i though how beautiful! but then it turned into a huge ball of fire and landed in the ocean it was bigger than what i first thought and created a huge tsunami,(one that would basically wipe off a huge portion of the earth) and we all knew we would die because of not enough time to evacuate. but then a white tiger appears and tries to attack me and a huge snake appeared out of nowhere and the white tiger turned its attention to that and devoured it. it was so strange!

-1.    October 8, 2008 at 3:06 am e I’ve had one tsunami dream in my lifetime, in 1982, during the planetary “Jupiter Effect”. In it, I was on a Southern California beach packed with people. I saw the wave coming and started screaming for everyone to get out. All ignored me. I then drove to Thousand Oaks, which was higher and more inland, behind Malibu. I walked into a “new” mall, and into a “new” bookstore which had no merchandise. In 1982, the Thousand Oaks Mall, indeed, was new. No such bookstore ever existed. Many years later, I live near that mall, which is now being torn apart to construct a NEW gigantic mall in its place. I wonder: Is a new bookstore going into this new mall now? Was I possibly seeing 2009 in my old dream?

-1.    October 14, 2008 at 11:48 am e I have had Tsunami dreams most of my life. They come in waves ( pun not intended) I’ll have them for months and then not again for years. I have made no correlation between the dreams and events in my life. Some strange things about them are that the wave never crashes. I just look up, usually from the beach or somewhere in the city, and I see the wave swelling. Growing taller and taller. Usually I am not scared I just want to find the people I love so THEY won’t be scared. People are always running frantically around me and I almost seem to move in slow motion. When I finally do find my loved ones, we never talk about the wave. Last night two strange things happened. First, instead of trying to find my loved ones, I ran in to the Ocean. I remember some smaller waves crashing in to me and I hit my head. When I was able to stand again I looked at the looming wave and the second strange thing happened. I thought to myself ” THIS is why I have been having all those Tsunami dreams” It was weird. Not really sure what it all means. And I wonder if there will be more

-1.    October 17, 2008 at 2:53 pm e I have had tsunami dreams long before the 2005 tsunami. I’m in very shallow ocean water a good distance from shore and all of the sudden a big wall of water is coming straight for me. Sometimes I’m on a road next to the ocean and the wave comes over the road. Last night coincidently the land was dry except for a few puddles that reminded me of the ocean that was once there. I didn’t remember that until I was writing this and I’ve never been to this site before. Strange. I don’t think tsunami’s signify a big change for me because right now I’m making big changes and I dreamed of the empty ocean.

-1.    October 18, 2008 at 9:41 pm e Last night I went out with my ex schoolmates, after 15 years and saw someone, who was dear to me then. It seems like, I still love him. Before I went to bed, I was thinking about him a lot.
So, later, I was dreaming, that we were walking down the beach and holding hands. Suddenly we were in the water, swimming, playing. And then I just turned my head and saw a giant wave, coming towards us and with every moment becoming bigger and bigger. It was like I see the wall in front of me. But it was a beautifull wave indeed, the colour was green blue, really clear, crystal. I knew in my dreams, that it was impossible to escape, there was no time. So I just surrendered, but felt really calm in realizing the fact, that we will die together. It was quite romantic actually, as we hold our hands and let the tsunami wave go over us. I kept my breath and hope to survive, but I think we didn’t survive. It was like a journey to eternity with someone, who you love. It was like, we are finaly together after all this time, and even if we are dying now, at least we will go TOGETHER.
It was happy & sad at the same time.

-1.    November 3, 2008 at 3:48 pm e I have dreams about Tsunamis for many years since the Tsunami in Asia. My country was the worst affected by it. It has changed my life but also the lives of many family members. We didn’t directly lose anyone in it but we missed it by a day as we were at the beach the day before it happened and always look back and think we were the lucky ones not to be at the beach on that day. However I quite often dream of Tsunamis. Sometimes I am on the beach and running away trying to survive or sometimes I am on a high building and trying to warn others about it. Sometimes even though I am on a high level I dream of the waves being so high they block out the sun and engulf the whole island and there are no survivors. What do these dreams mean? I don’t know. Very confusing. I do know that I wake up afterwards feeling very confused and even frightened wondering if it is a premonition of some sort. I do go to the beach but very rarely compared to before the Asia Tsunami. And when I do go I always keep a watch on the horizon to see if there is any wave climbing too high to be normal. Tsunamis… only god can understand them I think.

-1.    November 7, 2008 at 4:21 am e I had a dream of a tsunami last night. The thing is I was in the water but was able to hold my breath then go to a higher building. I always dream tsunamis, but this time i was actually in the water with my mother….but we eventually survive it. What i remember clearly though i was not afraid and was accepting that i may die.
The first time i dream of a tsunami soon after the tsunami took place in Indonesia. The second time a huge tidal wave hit my country. But this time the dream was more at a spiritual level because i was praying and felt peaceful.

-1.    November 8, 2008 at 10:49 am e I have been having tsunami dreams for about a year now. In the dream, I am always slightly excited, as well as terrified. I yell and warn others. I have never felt the water or been swept away by it. I manage to escape it? The dream fades around the time it hits the shore. These dreams were more common in the past six months and I had one last night. Maybe I should try to face the tsunami in my dream? I can relate to the spiritual, emotional changing theory. I hope I never have to face the real thing though. Peace from San Francisco, CA!

-1.    December 15, 2008 at 8:56 am e I have never recurrent dreams but now since about 6 months ago I have been having tsunami dreams. I have only had 6 or so I think but they feel very significant. It is strange because the scenery/location always changes and even the characteristics of the waves have never been the same. One time I was even being swept along a swift and deep river back into the ocean. The feelings are always the same though, I am not scared but definitely aware of the power involved. Generally I feel content to let it wash over me and do whatever. I feel like something will happen if I stay in the dream long enough and I feel like I want it to happen, but I always wake up before it does. Last night was a weird one because not only was the tsunami there but there was a giant squid or something with a huge tentacle in the wave. I still felt unafraid though, I was even surfing in the wave in the beginning of the dream which I has happened a couple times before too. I woke up again before whatever I am waiting for to happen happened. Also sometimes I have a home on the beach where the dream ends, and like some of the other people the wave never crashes.

I just woke up feeling washed away and scared of the tsunami dream I just had. Last time I had tsunami dreams was back when I lived in Kuwait before the Gulf war. The Gulf war has caused deep changes in all terms soul, attitude, economic conditions…etc to thousands and thousands of people who lived there. I have been living in North America ever since and nowadays it seems the big change to the worse is economic changes. I used to dream of changing my set of teeth which some translates it into change to the better of you life. My life did change gradually to much better. I think tsunami dreams is a change happening to a whole lot of people not only me to the worse. We will be affected differently. The ones closer to the shore will be affected the worse, the ones on the balcony will watch the whole kios over worried not affected as badly. Back in Kuwait we used to live near the shore but in North America we live near a river.

-1.    December 22, 2008 at 2:01 pm e I began to dream about tsunamis a week before Hurricane Katrina. The waves are unbelievable; they are about a mile high. I am usually washed away. In my last tsunami dream I observed a large wave as high as my 5th floor apartment from my apartment’s bay window. I survived the wave because I ran to the 8th floor where I found a preacher telling his congregation that global warming was a ruse. I became angry with the preacher because I believed the tsunami I had just escaped is somehow connected to the global warming epidemic. Perhaps these dreams have something to do with the December 2012 hype about the end of the world as we know it.

-1.    January 8, 2009 at 12:52 am e I sometimes have tsunami dreams and they are so terrifying I can’t recover the whole day.
Usualy I dream myself walking on a beach, or going towards the sea when suddenly the calm nice blue sea (the only sea appearance that I actually enjoy) turns into wavy black and then the sky turns cloudy and a huge black wave is fast coming towards me from the horizon. I usualy know what will happen..The feelings of no escape, tragedy, “everyone will die”, “impossible to run away”…Sometimes I try to run as fast as I can, sometimes I turn my back and cover my head and just stay on the beach ready for the milion ton bang..Sometimes I know I’m dead sometimes I stay alive, sometimes 2 more tsunamis like that come…BUt they are never ever positive!! NO matter which colour is the wave – black and transparent blue!!! Maybe spiritual change but into the negative side?????

-1.    January 11, 2009 at 11:35 am e I have had reoccurring tsunami dreams all my life. I lived on an Island but I had never heard of a tsunami until I was in high school and my Marine Biology teacher played an old tsunami movie. It was then that I was real scared because I realized that the dream represented a real catastrophe. I have always had these dream and I’m now in my late forties. I feel better that so many other shave a similar dream. I encounter the tsunami in many different settings,sometims I’m alon and sometimes with family friends but the outcome is the same the wave swallows us and I wake up. Thsi year I’ve had multiple dreams of the tsunami and it was worrying me more so I decided ggole it & found this site. Could this be a warning that there is going to be a large catatrophe? I feel that they are happening much more frequetly

Awakened and aware people will save themselves. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS PERSPECTIVE?

-1.    Nix Says:

-1.    January 27, 2009 at 5:30 am e I don’t know whether it would be accurate to say that my dreams have really started freaking me out or not… I’ve had dreams (very frequent – 1+ per week) about mega waves, tsunamis etc since as long as I can remember… Definitely since the age of two or younger, so effectively for at least 30 years… The setting is never the same, the danger always feels real.. Sometimes I only need to try and save myself, other times it is my family or friends or even strangers that I try to save… Sometimes I need to be saved… 
All I know is that over time, the waves have become bigger and consume more… The dreams are very vivid, but there are 3 that stand out and still make me feel ill when I think of them… Actually, all of them make me feel ill afterwards even though I’m relatively calm during the dream…
One that I had when I was about 10 years old involved my brother and I playing on the beach… The waves got rougher and bigger very quickly and we were running for higher ground. The water just kept reaching us as we scrambled up a huge mountain… Even at the top of the mountain, the sea level kept rising… I woke up before we were totally consumed by the waters, but with a feeling that there was no escape from the inevitable…
The worst yet was a few years ago – not too long before the 2004 disaster… A mega tsunami struck and although we lived up high, we had a view of the sea… The waters kept rising… I grabbed the kids (I have 3) and my labrador and we got in the car and headed for even higher ground, but the water kept rising… Eventually we couldn’t go any higher and I knew the water would reach us, so we got out the car and I held onto the kids with all my strength. I somehow knew that once the water had washed over us, it would begin to recede… I told the kids to hold onto me no matter what… To take a really deep breath when the water came… It washed over us with immense strengh and I held onto the kids tightly… I could see our dog was alright… The next moment my littlest daughter (a baby at the time) was pulled out of my arms by the raging water… I tried to hold on but all I had left in my hand was her diaper… The water started receding but there was no sign of her anywhere… Following the receding water I eventually found her… Pale, lifeless, dead… I woke up sobbing from the depths of my heart… Strangely, not even waking up and realising it was just a dream and that she was fine could console me… I still feel the pain now…
A very recent dream was of being at the top of a really big mountain… I was with family… We were visiting them and there was a church next door… Something felt very wrong so I went outside only to discover that the entire city below had been flooded by the sea… There was water everywhere… We all made a run for even higher ground, but as I looked up, a wall of water at least 150m high was coming over the top of the mountain towards us… The whole world was flooded and there was no escape… We had no choice but to let the water take us… Just as the last miniscule shred of life was leaving my body, I woke up…
I dream of huge volumes of water all the time… The dreams don’t actually feel symbolic… They feel like real warnings of impending doom… I feel like there will be a mass flood or mega mega tsunami in my lifetime… Mass destruction… Pole shifts even…
I wish my dreams felt more symbolic, but they don’t… Does anyone else feel like their dreams are real warnings???

-1.    January 27, 2009 at 6:10 am e Having read some posts more thoroughly…
Steve at #95 – yeah, in some tsunami dreams I almost do want the tsunami to come… But, I always get a strange feeling just before it is clear that it’s happening… 
I also get that same strange feeling in real life sometimes… Usually just before a major disaster, freak accident or death of someone close…
I live in South Africa! I live high up in the mountains nowhere near the sea, although I have lived at the coast before – for 6 years and then again for one year in 2007…
On 19th March 2007 the Durban coast and miles North and South were lashed by HUGE waves… Apparently not Tsunamis, but some waves reached 14m high… I looked out my bedroom window (about 20m above sea level and 1km inland) and saw waves crashing onto the beach road… Keen photographer and adrenaline junkie, I grabbed my camera and headed for the “beach”… Had some close calls, but got some awesome pics… Kids’ school was evacuated, beach sealed off by police, so much excitement… 
The entire coastline (about 700km) has been totally re-shaped… Some beaches didn’t return and now they’re just sea…

-1.    January 27, 2009 at 10:44 am e Nix — I get the same feeling as you — These dreams don’t really feel symbolic — They feel more like premonitions of some impending global disaster. I’ve read a lot of stuff about pole shifts, 2012, Atlantis, etc. because they all seem to strike a sort of resonance with the tsunami dreams I’ve always had. I don’t know… I’m hoping these types of dreams are just a quirky part of human nature. 
By the way, I had another dream a few weeks ago that I didn’t post. I was sort of hovering above the ocean. The planet was in what seemed like a perpetual darkness and I was hearing a sort of “news cast” (for lack of a better word) in my mind. The “news reporter” was saying, “In a single night, more than 85 percent of the Earth’s landmass sank beneath the sea…”

-1.    January 30, 2009 at 11:56 am e This week i have had two dream that deals with floods or tsunami’s. In both i was also with a particular person and there has been a strong emotional connection with that person. I am not aware that i am going through a spiritual change as some definitions of tsunami dreams indicate. However, i would agree that i am currently more conscious of making a life change by forcing myself to become a more direct and out-going person. A year ago i had my first tsunami dream. “I was in the south and the tsunami was headed our way. It was a very huge wall of water that towered over everything in site. There was no escaping the water. There were church goers all around singing and they were standing there waiting for the water to wash everything away. They were not afraid. I went inside a house and when the waters came the house started to get flooded”. I can’t recall what i was going through when i had that dream, possibly spiritual struggle but that was a year ago. I do feel that i am on the verge of a significant change in my life. I noticed that every 6 years I always experience a significant life change. Age 6 1983: Moved to the US from an island, Age 12 1989: Received my first computer which changed my future goals, Age 18 1995: My mother died, Age 24 2001: Started my career in computers, Age 30 2007: My last children were born (twins), Age 36 2013: Waiting to see what happens …
I think the Tsunami dream are coming more often since i have been trying to control lucid dreaming. Have anyone experienced this?

-1.    February 5, 2009 at 2:14 am e I had never had a dream about a tsunami until about a year ago. Now I seem to have one at least once a week. Though a spiritual person, I wouldn’t say I have been going through many spiritual changes lately. Also some of my most spiritual changes occurred before I had ever had a tsunami dream.
The recurring thing in my dream is being separated from family members and multiple tidal waves hitting me. I sometimes try to move to higher ground but most of the time I stay put. Every time though I turn and look at the wave, duck my head, and hold my breath. I’m never moved from my location, and occasionally I even breathe in water, although I do not drown from the inhalation of it. I always survive, and then I am trying to find my loved ones. I suppose this could relate to the many trials I have had in my life and always surviving them. The dreams are always a mixture of terror and excitement, much the way I feel after real life natural disasters or terrorist attacks. I’m never excited by the death, but just by the magnitude of it all and the realization that I am so little in the grand scheme of things and that every person deep down is the same, just trying their best and wanting the best for themselves and loved ones.

-1.    March 3, 2009 at 7:32 am e I just had my 4th or 5th tsunami dream last night. I started to have tsunami dreams about 3 or 4 months ago…My dreams are always very vivid. The interesting part is that tsunami always came very close to me, inches from my face but never hit me! never! I either woke up, or it was blocked by a glass( exactly similar to the one that I read in one of the comments above).But this time I dreamed that I was surfing in CA and it suddenly hit me, I closed my eyes and didn’t try to get a way from it…I couldn’t anyways…and seconds later I found myself in Australia… I could see the huge waves coming towards the place(not a tsunami)but they couldnt come any closer. I felt I was safe there. Interestingly enough I started talking to one of the Austalian locals in my dream and told him that I’ve been having several dreams about tsunamis and somehow I either knew I was dreaming again or I thought my dreams finally became real. but it didn’t stop there;I found my self dreaming in my dream( I dreamed that I was asleep and had a dream) in the dream someone invisible wtote something on a blurred mirror… ORIOLETE FETE, or ORTIOLETE FETE… I remember I wrote that down on a piece of paper(in my dream) so I would remember it when I woke up… suddenly I found myself somewhere else… I was with an ethnic kid probably a 10 year old, and we were running away from a global tsunami…It was the most terrifying experience…the sky was gray and cloudy and we were in a freeway in mountains (everywhere was covered in snow) and I clould see the huuuuge waves coming from behind the tall mountains and water was covering the land… and that was it…when I woke up I tried to remember that wierd name…ORIOLETE FETE… I had no idea what it meant, so I googled it Oriolete didn’t come up but when I was searching for a word similar to it on dictonary and I found a similar looking word and it meant meteorites or a huge mass of metal, and fete means a day of celeberation… so I’m thinking it means a day wit many meteorites…and if that could be ture…maybe we are being warned that many meteorites hitting the earth in one day are going to cause a huge global tsunami…….

-1.    March 7, 2009 at 3:30 am e After reading this article and everyone’s comments, I feel self fulfilled. I have had many psychology classes and have studied Carl Jung, so I knew that all dreams had meaning. I vaguely remember my dreams and for years thought I never had any, but after studying I realized that everyone dreams in REM sleep, just some remember more than others. I have had these Tsunami dreams for the past two years now, all seem to be the same location, just different times of the day, different weather situations and one time I was in a beach house. These dreams have happened sporadically and feel very real, I’ve had seven in the course of two years. The last four have occurred more frequently, spanning in the last three months. Last month after awaking from this horrific dream I explained to my wife in full detail what took place, she thought nothing of it until I told her this was recurring then she thought it was strange. After last nights escapade I decided to look up the meaning of tsunami dreams and found this website as well as all of you. I have to admit that after finding my answer I have also found complete solace. I have been going through this life altering transition for the past two years. This spiritual upheaval as some of you referred to it, was much needed in my life because I was in danger of losing everything that was precious to me……my family! Now that I have found my answer, I say bring on Poseidon’s wrath I will face the salt water wall of terror with the urgency to replenish my soul and continue on my journey to spiritual solace!

-1.    March 12, 2009 at 10:07 am e Last night was my first night having a tsunami dream. In it I was with a lot of people I knew on a vacation island doing all of the tourist-like things. While on the beach, I noticed people kept pointing to the ocean. When I looked, I saw huge waves that looked like they were as high as the sky! Then the water/waves slowly crept on the beach. Every few minutes the water kept creeping up. Everyone on the beach including myself began to move further and further away from the beach. Some how I rememeber walking back toward the beach and ending at a “sand cliff” were the beach had eroded. (I was confused also…) So I was looking down off of a high cliff at sand and out at the ocean getting closer. Then out of nowhere the largest wave we’d seen during this period of time appeared out of the ocean. Everything & Everyone was silent. I remember running to an SUV and kneeling beside it, clutching all of my belongings with my eyes closed. Then I turned my face to the beach again and saw nothing but water coming to towards ME! I Woke Up in a complete nightsweat, shaking, scared and confused… 
I’ve done research on Tsunami dreams and I think my Tsunami dream has to do with the fact that I met a guy that I really like but I’m scared it’s not going to work out-I’d always had fears of falling in love because I can’t stand someone leaving me. I don’t think I love this guy but I have developed feelings. Recently, I been thinking that he’s trying to think of creative ways to end our relationship. I think that the Tsunami represents the underlying pain I feel about relationships and this one in particular.

So my opinion is that the dreams that I’m getting now in 2009 are not the effect of those. Looks like I’m not in control of something..Might be my anger..fear of losing ..
But really this dream is unbelievable and scaryyyyy. 
Interesting to see many of you have also got such dreams…

But in one of my dreams i clearly remember that when the wave reached so high that it covered our view of the sky, there suddenly was a change in the climate… we could see colors filled in the sky, beautiful smell… an amazing feeling… and there was this smooth music of bells and violens
.. it was beautiful.. every one around me stood still with the wave just above our heads.. and all of a sudden the wave receded!!!!!!

-1.    April 3, 2009 at 5:13 am e I have been dreaming about water for a long time.. I always tell my family when i wake up something like “I had another bad dream .. the water was coming to get me” 
I’m glad that i found this site because this morning after i woke up from a series of water dreams i was telling my sister.. “I couldnt possibly be the only one having these dreams!”
And I guess its nice to know that youre not alone.
my dreams about it change up a lot.. but usually i’m with family and i’m always worried about my 2 cats and getting them to safety because.. i couldnt imagine them having to deal with that much water on their own..
last night was weird because some parts about my dream really made no sense.
first i had a dream that i was in a hardware store or a warehouse made out of sheet metal .. and it was raining and the rain was collecting outside on the roof until the weight of the water was too heavy and the roof broke open and all the water poured in.. but it was a lot of water..

-1.    April 6, 2009 at 10:02 am e I had a Tsunami dream last night, I was on the coast and looked down at the bay which had drained of water. There were many people around and we all started runnin up to higher ground. Whilst running a looked to my left to the coast line and saw a huge swell approaching, realising it was coming quickly myself and several others started climbing a huge liquid amber tree to avoid being sewpt away. When we climbed up the tree we found it was very flexible even though it was a huge tree it felt like it was made of rubber. The thought struck me that the tree would bend over or become uprooted when the wave hit. Other thoughts ran through my head – was I high enough ? would I be able to hold on ?
Then I awoke !

-1.    April 11, 2009 at 11:30 pm e I had a tsunami dream last night. my first tsunami dream to be exact. I was on the beach having a vacation and noticed the sky turned darker. There was my family and the people were pointing to the ocean. Some were running around screaming. The waves were impossible to escape and it was SO huge and dark. there were about 4 or 5 waves that hit us. gladly, my family and I survived the huge waves but some people got killed or flushed away with the waters. 
And also I guess the reason why I had that dream is because of the spiritual changes that’s happening to me. And also that it’s Lenten season.. so I guess there’s a connection with that.

-1.    April 12, 2009 at 2:33 am e About a year ago I had my first and only tsunami dream. It came after a time of “spiritual awakening”, about a year into my conversion to Catholicism. 
I was at a vacation spot in a hotel or retreat center facing the water with my inlaws and my Mom. I went outside and saw the water recede. I ran inside and through the building screaming for everyone to get to higher ground. When I was certain that everyone was out, I ran to the door, but by the time I reached the exit, I saw the water come over the building and I knew I was trapped inside. I turned and saw my Mom. We were both calm and accepted our fate. We prayed that the Lord receive us into His Kingdom.

-1.    April 18, 2009 at 7:57 am e I had my second tsunami dream last week. My first tsunami dream was one week before the Thailand tsunami, and i dreamt i was tied to a pole in an Asian country, watching the tsunami come.
Last week, I dreamt that I was in a boat on the ocean, and the tsunami kept coming at me, on repeat almost, and every time it would crash over me, I would try to maneuver the boat a different way so that it wouldn’t be flooded. Finally, I decided to just jump out of the boat and swim under the tsunami, and it worked. I was suddenly swimming in a world of enlightened beings on a flooded planet, all of whom had gone under the wave as well.
Last night, I went to a spiritual ceremony where i made the most significant emotional progress of my life to date. it literally saved my life. This made me think of the dream, and i am certain i was just learning how to swim under it correctly.
namaste!

-1.    April 19, 2009 at 12:17 am e A couple weeks ago I had a dream where I was sitting on a beach with a friend. I was speaking with her when I looked up and saw this huge wave come for the beach. I automatically got up and ran and dove right into the wave like you do at the beach when a wave “sneaks” up on you. Unfortunately, I ended up at the top of the wave where it crashed me right into the beach. A moment later I was on the beach again sitting next to my friend when I asked if I was deceased. Se responded saying that I was. 
Also, last week I had another wave dream which was a little different because I did not dive into this one and do not remember to many details. After reading this and other articles regarding dreams, I realized I could have prepared myself for future events if I only had read the meanings my dreams. But we live and learn.

-1.    April 21, 2009 at 1:33 am e I have these dreams a lot. I don’t know what they mean they are very scary though. The one I had last night was the first time I was in a boat. I was looking out to sea and I saw the Statue of Liberty, The eiffel Tower, Temple Mount and a couple of other iconic monuments that I can’t remember. They were all together though and they were shining bright but then a huge wave came and sank everything with a burst of light. It was very sad and I felt helpless. I am sure this is a combination of how I feel in real life and also the news that surrounds me.

-1.            May 8, 2009 at 7:50 am e Hi!! I too have had tsunami dreams since late high school, I think. I graduated in 2001.
They started when I was dating a boy and couldn’t decide whether or not to stay with him. I ended up breaking off the relationship and the dreams ended … for a while. They have come back, off and on, since then.
Last night, the tsunamis were the largest ever. Hundreds and hundreds of feet tall and death seemed eminent. No one could possibly survive a tsunami this tall. In fact, when I first knew the tsunamis were coming, I remember trying to figure out if I was in a dream. I thought to myself, “is this a dream? I have tsunamis in my dreams.” But I decided it was real. Tsunamis may be our portal to lucid dreaming, especially if they are recurring, which is totally fascinating. 
I was in Costa Rica, in a hotel, like so many of you, with a group of friends. What is the connection between travel and the tsunamis? Is it simply because I do not live near the ocean and must travel to get there? Or is it something about exploration and uncertainty?
Also, the waves were unique in another way this time. At first, they originated from the ocean, naturally, but soon they were crashing in from opposite angles — both from the ocean and the direction of shore. They smacked into one another and created an intense flash of white light. The double smack caused the building I was in to topple to one side, and I was able to escape.
Next time I hope to decide that I am dreaming and attempt a lucid dream! I’ll write back if successful.

-1.            May 20, 2009 at 12:56 am e Hi
I know you can find anything if you look for it on the web – but i feel very strongly that we are all having Tsunami dreams for a reason.
My first was this week and i still feel shaken and uneasy by it.
I was swimming in the sea – which i never do because i dont like to. The sea was getting choppier and i could feel there was something wrong. I tried shout to the people i was with – don’t know who they were – to get out and RUN. No one listened to me and even if they did I was too busy running to care!
I ran and ran up hill – up this mountain i could hear myself panting. The ground changed from pebbly to stoney to me being amongst the trees. I kept scrambling up hill aware that i had to make sure my husband and two boys were safe even though i didn’t even know where they were. I eventually reached the top of this mountain and turned around and saw an incredible wave coming my way. I took a huge breath – funny – I know! and the wave settled about twenty feet below me all arouns – the top of the trees were only just visible. I saw a little house further up the mountain (hansel and grettle like) ran in and my family were all there. safe – we look out the windows and looked down on the devestation knowing that nothing would ever be the same again.
I went down the hill again and met a very distraught woman and her two daughters who insisted on giving me their jewellery so that they KNEW they would come back. They wanted to go doen and see what was left. I told them to come and find us at the house when they came back. 
I went back up the hill again -heart pounding and woke up – heart pounding and feeling very disoriented and i cant get it all out of my mind ever since.
I’ll be keeping an eye here for more insights.

-1.            May 28, 2009 at 1:52 am e I’ve had a couple of Tsunami dreams over the last few months. Each time i’m not with my husband and kids but lots of people are around. First dream i’m on the beach some whhere exotic and the suction occurs and then the huge wave grows in the distance and proceeds towards me but i wake up (in a sweat)before it crashes. At the time of the dream we where in South Africa and staying in a hotel overlooking a very choppy surfers haven. There had been a storm, and although my husband ( a native of SA) had re assured me it’s a typical storm for them i was a little scared and i did invisage a Tsunami occuring although i new not possible as i was told scientifically.
Second dream i’m in a hotel not sure where and it has huge glasss windows and people are sat down eating. Then a huge wave appears to come tower us and crash around us, but no water happens to enter the building …and then i wake up!
Strangely enough, I honeymooned in Thailand the very same year the Tsunami occured in Dec’04 and I rembember one time a sbeed boat was taking us to one of the phi phi islands. The water began to get very choppy which the driver decided to turn back as i recall telling him i was eight weeks pregnant and him telling me there where no life jackets. I remember never feeling so scared in my life. I gave birth to my first child Chloe on the 30th Dec after she was due on the 23rd and remember the shock of hearing the traggic news on the 26th Dec and crying non stop till day of delivery which i cried even more tears still. 
I Can only believe that the dreams do signify my need to protect my children as i remember the feeling on that boat and how terrified i got and how distraught over the news like much of the whole world was to the Tsunami in South East Asia. 
Also i feel a dream takes place when i have had quarrel with my hubby, so i guess it’s as mentioned earlier an explosion of emotions.
I will deffinatley looking out for more posts as i cannot believe how many people are also effected by these dreams.

-1.            May 31, 2009 at 5:47 pm e Hello from Beirut,
I am surprised to read about tsunami dreams, as i have never met anyone who had them (i have had 4 so far, the first one before the big tsunami of 2005). I Love the sea, love to swim and feel most happy when i look at the sea. However, i am haunted by these dreams, where flood, water, buildings, cars, people are drowning. It is always very dramatic. But during the last 2 dreams, my fear of dying and not beeing able to protect my children transforms into a peaceful feeling. i realise in the dream that this is too big for me to control and i just need to let go. Which i finally do in the dream. I accept the fact that i can either survive or drown. And my fear disolves. I wake up very disturbed by the dream, and need more than a day to recover. i am sure that living in Beirut (where i grew up during the war) brings up many emotions, that are sometimes difficult to handle and control, therefor the dream?? I don’t know, and would like to read more about it.

-1.            June 9, 2009 at 4:25 pm e I had a tsunami dream a few days after I broke up for good with my boyrfriend after almost 2 years of having a horrible and emotional relationship.. 
In the dream I was with a friend in her truck driving away from this huge tsunami I could see comming over the mountains– it finally hit and ussually id expect for me to wake up– but instead the dream continued and we were under water holding our last breath– until we drove into underground place with air– lol it was kinda random- but I woke up feeling relieved–
And after reading this post– it makes sence– I totally felt as if I am accepting the breakup and my emotions washing away and becoming a stronger person. And I feel as surviving the tsunami in my dream it reflects me surviving and getting over this relationship–!
Thanks for the great post!

-1.            June 19, 2009 at 9:21 am e This morning was the first time I ever dreamt of a tsunami. I was in a mini bus and we were driving along the seaside, I was videoing the ocean because the waves were very choppy the next minute I saw a super huge gigantic wave 100 metres high I was videoing it – it was incredible I said it’s gotta be a tsunami I told the bus driver to drive fast but he just sat there like a zombie and the bus was stationary. I nudged him, I was screaming and hysterical to drive fast because this is seriously happening. He wouldn’t move and I swore at him as the waves were moving in behind us like in the movies. I woke up then. I wonder what the dream means?

-1.            July 4, 2009 at 10:07 am e i had and still have tsunami dreams too. The first set of dreams appeared shortly before the indonesian tsunami and I barely remember them. however – in those dreams I always was an observer in some kind of safe place. Like for example in a helicopter – and when the waves got so high to reach the helicopter i freaked out but the pilot and my BF were not scared to I watched in fascination. Then for many years the dreams stopped. They reappeared mid last year and this time they were different. In one dream I was in a kind of a restaurant overlooking the ocean and I noticed the water was rising unusually and then a wave so big that it hit the windows of the restaurant hit. That was ok, the owner said that happens in winter sometimes. then a 2nd wave approached which looked so big it would run over the whole restaurant, i wanted to run away but stayed inside and I think with the 3rd wave the place got trashed and I died in this dream. Typically I don’t die in dreams but in my late tsunami dreams i did. Another one was…I was hiking some cliff above the ocean and saw a large wave approaching, tried to get to a higher place. with BF and dog. Again a 2 nd wave and this one almost got me, my BF reaching out to pull me up onto a high place but the thrid huge wave came and washed everything away, again I died in this dream. All of those have in common that they are very intense and “feel different” than a normal dream. Anyways – earlier this year we moved, still living close to the ocean but my dreams have changed. Still increadible high waves eating everything up, covering everything but now I am in a safe place, kind of on a high hill and it is incredible tha the waves get up this high. I look at them fascinated and scared and want to get to a higher place but kind of know too that I am safe. So – at least I don’t die any more in my dreams 
So in this case the change of life circumstances, the move, other stuff could have triggered those dreams and expressing that time of change in my life. There is however a tiny bit of what worries me – I had dreams in the past which – looking back – could easily be connected to real events that happend. They had in common that they “felt different”, more intense, clear. So – whatever the reason is for the dreams – I am glad i found this site and all your dreams.

-1.            July 8, 2009 at 9:49 am e Fascinating posts!  
I have 2 recurring dreams. One is about a Tsunami which I see filling up the horizon in the distance and swelling to such heights there is no doubt in my mind I will not be able to escape it, thus sealing my fate. 
The other is about a nuclear bomb going off within such a range that I also know that I’m done for. I can see the mushroom cloud and I simply know that I’m going to die. 
Both dreams scare me out of my mind. However in both cases I find myself struggling for survival. I try to escape the apparently inevitable. In one particular awesome dream I actually picked up a surfboard and in a moment of last defiance I ran towards the wave with it.
In another it was actually a nuclear explosion that set off a tidal wave. So I believe these 2 dreams are linked somehow. 
So for me personally those dreams not so much translate into emotional or spiritual change, but are more related to fear for the loss of control. Their impact on once life are absolute and there is no way to sidestep or circumvent their influence.
I however found a way to deal with this.. This summer, inspired by my dreams, I took up surfing lessons and I plan on becoming adept enough to surf some of those big waves in Hawaii, thus facing one of my biggest fears.

-1.            July 10, 2009 at 10:22 pm e I’ve been having tsunami dreams for the last two years. I’ve never died in my dreams like other people have mentioned. I always seem to run to the highest hill/building. The wave has never reached me – I just see it approaching. I’m freaked out in these dreams. I have always loved the beach. In March I had to go down to the coast for work. We stayed in a beautiful apartment overseeing the beach and had a great time, although I was paranoid that a tsunami might hit us. I was checking the sea level at night to make sure it didn’t raise. I was so relieved when we went home.
Is there something wrong with me? Why do I keep on dreaming about tsunami’s?

-1.            July 12, 2009 at 3:35 am e I have been having dreams of tsunami’s for three years now they are recurring but sometimes differ.
I am often within a building that my concious does not know and can see out of the window the water rising and i just turn my back and let it gush through everywhere. I am sometimes holding a baby which i have to protect. It is always dirty water except once when it was clear blue waters. I do wonder why i keep dreaming of tsunami’s it is horrid and i wake up in a sweat feeling sick and crying as they are so vivid. I found it really interesting to read others comments.

-1.            July 31, 2009 at 9:30 am e Only a few dreams over the years. The one this morning very vivid. My husband is driving car I am passenger, we go along road up a hill. We nearly approach top when a wave fifty high looms above us. That bit was awesome as I can still the wave in my mind, no fear about it. The wave crashes over car breaking windscreen, husband ends up in back of car.Then we are in a park with lots of picnic tables and benches. People arrive with cars then put tarpaulins over the picnic tables, however a family nearby tries to cover our car and our picnic table with their tarpaulin. they are annoyed when we ask them to remove it.
We are going thru lots of stress at the moment, car accident, selling house to move overseas. 
I like the spiritual connection with tsnumanis, but the others about turmoil in life seems to fit us at the present.

-1.            August 25, 2009 at 4:43 am e I have had 5 or 6 tsunami dreams within the last few months. Each dream is a different scenario but I am always with someone. I either try to run and wake up right before the waves crashes on me, or I hold on to something and hold my breath, and I survive, but the waves keep coming and are more and more intense. I am terrified of the beach now, just the thought of going makes me nervous.

-1.            September 4, 2009 at 5:39 pm e Last night was one of the biggest night in my life. I woke seeing my dead body floating in water. Yes, I had a Tsunami dream. Me and my lover were standing in the beach with coconut trees on both the sides. Water is very clear. For the first time am going out with him and he is talking about our future. All of a sudden am putting my mouth wide open he watches it… He is running and coming and dragging me towards his right. Tsunami in a ball form crossed next to us and we both were watching it. All the people in the beach started running saying that it is an indication for a big tsunami. He kicks of his motor bike and drives it as fast as he can. Am saying to him we are in ECR road which is full of beach and no ways we can escape from it. Meanwhile people started shouting at the top. He stopped his bike and holded my hand tight and I saw the tsunami coming over us. Somehow we were departed and my dead body is floationg in water.
I woke crying that I couldnt find him thou am dead… After waking up almost 30 minutes I was thinking I shouldnt goto beach anymore… Also something gave me a strong feeling that shortly tsunami gonna come so I should be aware and keep my family and friends safe by informing this….

-1.            September 4, 2009 at 8:04 pm e i have had drowning dreams for as long as i can remember, sometimes i’m climbing up on buildings because the water is filling up everywhere, mostly im just falling in water as i dont know how to swim.
sometimes the waves just sweep me away. once the water turned to petrol and was afire while i was drowning. yesterday i dreamt of massive waves which have taken over the entire landscape, while i’m trying to tie down with a rope the building i live in, as suddenly it seems to be toppling over. and for the first time in all the history, i did not drown and the waves receded, leving a vivid pink and orange landsape… 
its bizzare what all the human mind can conjure out of the blue. I have been going through a state of intense emotional upheavel for the past four years, during which the dreams have intensified…

-1.            September 14, 2009 at 2:46 pm e I had a tsunami dream last night…two in fact.
I just the other day, had a fall out with an ex girlfriend.
We were still friends, but now she doesn’t want to be friends even.
It was a silly misunderstanding, one which I feel a simple ’sorry’ would suffice.
I have said it so many times but she ignores me.
Strangely enough, I feel now that either I admit I want to be with her, or
cut her off completely, realizing any relationship would be toxic.
I’m a big believer in the power of dreams, having been told of my fathers death,
and a time when I was wasting effort on something else.
Maybe this tsunami dream means it’s time to move on.

-1.            September 30, 2009 at 4:08 am e Wow it is so weird to see so many other people that are having Tsunami dreams! I’m not sure if I’m relieved or more freaked out. I moved to Wilmington NC a little over a year ago. I started having the tsunami dreams about 3 months ago. I dream them atleast 2-3 times a week. It’s crazy. I’m always in a beach house or a hotel right on the beach. My brothers and sister mom, fiance, and son are always there with me and I’m always trying to protect them. In one my son was washed away. In another the wave was so huge, it was inevitable that we were all going to die, so we gathered in a circle and held on to eachother, said our last goodbye’s, and jusst as the enormous wave was going to hit I woke up. In last night’s dream (which was by far the most vivid and real) I was at a beach house with the same family members I mentioned above. It was beautiful outside so my two little brothers, my mom, and I decided to go swimming. We were walking down toward the beach and noticed the water receding really far. I immediately got freaked out and was like we have to go NOW! C’mon lets go run and nobody would listen to me..until they saw a huge wave coming towards us. We somehow made it back into the house and on to the second floor after gathering all of my family members. We watched helplessly as one wave after another began hitting the house. I remember looking at our neighbors house after one of the waves receded and the lady stepped outside the door and she had her daughter in her arms. She put her daughter down while she went to pick something up and I was screaming from the second floor of oru house to get her there is another wave coming and she couldn’t hear me. Her 2-3 year old daughter was then abruptly swept away. My family and I ended up living through this tsunami dream. It was so vivid though cause in my dream I knew I had been dreaming of tsunami’s recently and I was telling my mom how I knew that a tsunami was going to hit and I should have done something. Then in the aftermath I remember watching the news and seeing aerial footage of all the destruction the tsunami caaused over the entire east coast of the us. VERYYY WEird…my mom and my grandma were both psychic…and I think that’s what freaks me out most. I have dreams that come true ALOT…I just hope that this isn’t one of them!

    I had a dream of a huge clear water wave coming towards me but I was protected by a huge wall. a little bit of the wave touched the wall……never had this kind of dream before. Moreover I am not a dreamer therefore when I dream I like to know the meaning

    grateful for any interpretation
