Ocean – The ocean is a symbol of the subconscious mind. It is the pool of thoughts, dreams and hopes. Dreaming about the ocean, especially if you are in the middle of it or on the beach, means that you are currently organizing your thoughts and beliefs in such a way as to better understand who you are and what your purpose in life is. To some, the ocean is also the destination of their life. Those that have this belief usually also believe that their life is represented by a river which will eventually flow to the ocean where they will find completeness and unity with all of creation.
