Lake

The water of a lake symbolizes life, because its calm flow and natural movement links to our future. In contrast, the waters of a reservoir represent diseases since their violent movements are the result of artificial construction. In oneiric terms, the lake is a manifestation of the state that is our unconscious: if its waters are calm, it is a sign of inner peace; if, however, they are agitated, it indicates emotional disorders If vegetation covers its shore, the dream manifests inner wealth, creativity, and emotional satisfaction; however, if the banks are dry and rocky, an emotional disorder is evident. Finally, to fish in the lake demonstrates a desire to find companionship or a partner. If we see ourselves reflected in its waters, the meaning of the dream changes completely, perhaps reflecting a narcissistic attitude. (See water , stream , mirror , and fountain ) In Japanese Zen Buddhism, the lake is a symbol of the mind. If the surface is moving, you cannot see the reflection of the moon. However, if the water is calm, the moon appears. Similarly, the mind must be calm to perceive spiritual enlightenment.
