Dream 163: Fill the Hole in My Soul
A 56-year-old man dreamt that he was filling in his swimming pool with dirt. At other times he saw himself caring for the pool and the water would be crystal clear.
This was a recurrent dream. Water almost invariably represents emotion in dreams. Pools represent contained domestic emotions because they are located in residential domiciles. He was working through how much emotion he would invest at home with his family. Filling the swimming pool with dirt shows a preference for grounding (dirt) ones self and covering up emotion (water). The crystal clear water was a dream of the desired emotional atmosphere at home. He wanted the family to be crystal clear in their emotional intentions.
