Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking characteristics: Dreams that take place at the seashore often reflect times of change and transition; a psychological “edge” that can be good or bad, but is usually emotionally a stretch or challenge.

Although this dream is brief, it is loaded with significant symbolism. The shore suggests the dreamer is involved in a situation that has taken her to the “edge” of where she has been before, thus a test or challenge is involved in this passage of her life. The rising tide suggests a sense of pressure or a “tide” of new and different feelings washing around this situation. Finally, the action takes place at dusk, another time of transition, when the obvious (daylight) is changing into the unknown (night). The basic instinct is to reach for safety, the familiar and the known. The solution to such a passage is time, patience, and kindness. Being gentle with our panicky feelings, our reluctance to change, and our confusion can take much of the pressure out of transition. It doesn’t need to be perfect, and it can and should be done gently.
