Water symbolizes the unconscious and thus swimming means that you trust it and are open to its path. You are sure of what you do and you are receptive to the creative power of the mind. If you dive, it denotes that you and your unconscious form a team. This conjunction is strengthened if, in the dream, you are able to breathe underwater. To swim strongly in clear water foretells success in love and business. If, on the contrary, you sink or fight to stay afloat, it means the opposite.

Types of sleep
There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
