A tsunami can indicate a tremendous and fundamental change in you. Most people now know that tsunamis are caused by massive earth changes under the sea. These changes are part of the natural order, and often show themselves to people in their dreams. So they can be understood as an expression of our personal adaptation to enormous changes. They can wash away most of the beliefs, social structures we have built or held onto as important. Yet if we are not afraid of change and the forces that we are actually involved in, then we can find enormous power and force within us.

Remember that tsunamis are dangerous in waking life, but are the expression of your inner life in dreams. They are not dangerous and need not be avoided or run from while asleep. Meeting a tsunami is saying that some tremendous change has happened deep in you and in the world. Tsunamis are caused by earthquakes on the sea bed. So many people are dreaming about them at the moment because of the enormous change going on around us and within us. So learn to face them without fear and be ready to meet change in your life and in your family.

I had a tsunami dream last night. I was working as a nurse (or something like that) in what was a very unconventional hospital. People were laying on the floor instead of beds with no separate rooms, for instance. I went down to what felt like the basement but must have been the ground floor because a wall was missing that led directly to the beach. It was then that I saw the tsunami. I was not afraid but excited and exhilarated by it. This bottom floor also had a pool in it and surrounding the pool were all women with babies. Some very small. Like preemies. I knew I had to get them to safety and that gave me some anxiety. As the wave hit I was rescuing the last preemie and managed to hold on to it. However, after that a new patient, a man who was ill, came down and the baby with him was injured. He refused to allow me to take the child. I was overwhelmed with anger towards him. I wanted to have all the babies safe and be free to enjoy the tsunami myself. I considered stealing his child away from him just to get it to safety. Even after showing him the approaching wave (it had receeded too far back to see for a while) he still refused. In my waking life I have a seven week old son. My first child. Since his birth my husband and I have had more fights than usual generally when I’m asking for assistance with the baby. Do you have any more insight for me? Thanks in advance.

    Kris – First of all congratulations on the birth of your son and thank you for sharing about your waking life as well. It makes the work on your dream so much easier. :-)
    You are obviously trying to take care of this new situation that both your husband and you have found yourselves in and I trust some more understanding of your dreams will support your efforts.
    I feel that the many premature babies are “partly” symbols of all the new aspects that you both gave birth to, with the birth of your son. They are premature for what you meet in yourself and in each other in your new role as father and mother is still very vulnerable and needs time to grow. So please be patient and kind with your selves and each other.
    For a better understanding of these “inner babies” please read http://dreamhawk.com/pregnancy-childbirth/the-baby-in-your-dream/
    I wrote “partly” because I feel this symbol of the injured baby is also about you meeting your husband’s injured inner baby; “Since his birth my husband and I have had more fights than usual generally when I’m asking for assistance with the baby”-
    Please read http://dreamhawk.com/health-and-healing/inner-baby-and-child/
    There are many ways in which we might come face to face with our inner baby or child. These might include the arising in your daily life of inappropriate responses to situations. In a warm and loving relationship you experience only pain instead of pleasure; you feel terror that your partner will abandon you; you hit out emotionally or even physically at the person who is actually closest to you; you withdraw from the world or lack any motivation to be a part of society or be in contact with others; you feel enormous longing to find love, but it never seems to be there when you relate to someone.
    Since you want to enjoy the massive changes your son brought into your life, you respond in the dream with the desire to take your husband’s injured baby and take care of it; probably as a means to stop the fighting and find a more harmonious relationship again with each other.
    The birth of your son has triggered unresolved issues in both of you and now that they surface, it is not always easy to allow them to be and to see them as opportunities to heal and grow, rather than as disturbing influences; they are all a part of the tsunami and of your new experiences and it will be of help to communicate openly with each other whatever arises inside you.
    Although you can assist your husband with his inner process, you cannot do it for him. Please also read Jessica’s dream on the “baby site” of the dream dictionary, as she was confronted with the same:

Oh also, on the same night my husband had a dream that I was very sick/dying of cancer. Our baby boy was also in the dream. He rarely remembers or shares his dreams with me. He has been very nice and helpful today. Yesterday we had fought because he has been getting frustrated and snapping at me which isn’t like him. Especially as I’ve been trying harder to please him but sometimes need a hand with our son or the dogs as I breastfeed. Are our dreams both related to the fight?

    Kris – I feel too that your husband is giving his best to deal with this new situation, which is what his dream expresses as well.
    He is becoming aware that his INNER female is sick.
    Cancer depicts parts of one’s emotional or thinking character that are sick and/or unhealthy. It is possible that as a baby (and child) he never received the care and the love which he needed to develop these nurturing qualities in himself and the birth of his son confronts him with these unhealed parts.
    Please read
    In general we can say the woman represents the man’s emotions, his nurturing and caring quality, forgiveness, his sense of what is natural and his connection with nature, its cycles and drives. Through such feelings a man would recognise in people and animals the urges that link one to a mate, the strength to protect and nurture children, and the natural within himself.
    That your husband remembered his dream AND shared it, I see as another wonderful step.
    Anna :-)
