A lake seen in a dream is all about how you emotionally are standing still – just like the lake itself. Swimming without ever reaching land in a dream can imply that things are going to end favorably in the coming weeks. Plunging or diving into the water before swimming in a dream can indicate that you will effectively negotiate strong emotions shortly. The dream of swimming in dirty or polluted water or a swimming pool means that we will have to face severe obstacles. Dirty water heralds vague situations in our lives, and bad energy, which can result in sudden illness or loneliness.
According to Christian beliefs, a dream about swimming in a tranquil ocean foretells peace and success. On the flip side, the scenario denotes you are worried about the future if you see yourself swimming in a stormy waterbody. It is a positive sign if you see yourself swimming in clear blue water in a dream. According to the plot, you will encounter good people and will be able to develop promising relationships with them. Contrarily, dreaming against the current in a swimming pool shows that you feel apprehensive about the future.
If you’re swimming against a current or treading in rough water, you may be feeling worried about the future. This dream could mean that it is time to cleanse your life of problems and deal with the emotional issues you may be facing. To dream of swimming in a peaceful swimming pool, it means that things are going to be calm in the future.
If you dream of swimming in a stormy ocean with waves raging, you are likely to face major challenges in the foreseeable future. Undeniably, the plot happened to prepare you for the troublesome times that are approaching you. You must, at all costs, learn to adopt a positive mindset to incur the least damage to yourself. Since you saw yourself swimming in a lake with sparkling clean water, it may mean your life situation is going pretty well presently. However, there is a possibility that your fate will suddenly turn upside down and change for the worse as you see the lake turn into a swamp. Others relate dirty, unclear water to the worst of interpretations.

You might have lost that because of reckless decisions or actions, or you have never even felt like someone supports you.
In addition to that, the way you swim in dreams has meanings too. If you swim difficulty, then you are most likely to face hardship in your waking life. If you swim pleasantly, then you may experience a happy and successful period in life.
