water in dreams can be symbolic for emotions. in this case overwhelming emotions that attempt to reach her and sweep her away. the balcony is a vantage point to look at something at the distance. my guess is she has a person or event happening in her life that she finds emotionally overwhelming and this is her way of processing the emotions.
My friend had an intense dream last night - she's not an ATSer so I'm posting for her and to see if others are having similar imagery.
She's on the 4th floor of an apartment complex with an ex-boyfriend. Standing on the balcony she sees the ocean suck out, then a massive wave roll in. She runs inside, starts grabbing stuff and yelling at the ex to get out of there. The wave hits and water comes up to the balcony. She runs down the back stairs (no water there, its a dream afterall) but goes back to get keys or something. Sees the water sucking out again, this time the wave hits and takes off the balcony. She's screaming that they have to get out of there and wakes up.
I asked a few questions and got this info - seemed to be afternoon, sun was up in the sky over the ocean so west coast of somewhere. She used to live in Los Angeles with the ex, but now lives inland up north. She kept calling it tidal wave, but was clear on the water being sucked out so maybe a tsunami.
Anyway, just posting it here in case anyone has input. It could just be the chaos after a break up dream, or.....
Thank you for sharing!!
May I ask what region of the World your friend lives in?
I had a terrifyingly realistic dream about a comet and tsunami during a mid day deep slumber on September 19th.
The comet in my dream was So beautiful, I was in awe steering at it Rising in the Eastern Sky.
It was like a bride standing there and the coma and trails look like silk veils of a brides wedding dress.
After staring at it for a minute, my dream(minds eye) teleports me to a school yard of a 1950-1970's style brick and window built school.
Right after porting me there, these Tsunami warning style loudspeakers start blasting "Get to the Hill, Get to higher ground!" that were on a pole near the school.
I looked up at the sky and it was streaked and red. Very Chaotic looking sky. Behind the school was a hill that led up to a bigger hill, maybe call it a small mountain. There were other people panicking, yelling, screaming, and scrambling to get to this hill.
I was shaken from it. This dream will stick with me forever...
