Dreaming of swimming pools usually signifies your hidden desire to be more fit or lead a healthier lifestyle. It's also a way for your subconscious to let you know that you're stressed and need to relieve some of that pressure. If you often dream of swimming pools, it may be because you have some unresolved issues from the past.

A swimming pool can represent the feeling of being trapped, stuck in a situation, feeling like there is no way out, or dealing with overly demanding and controlling people. Read on to find out more about the meaning of swimming pool dreams.


Dreaming of swimming pools is something very common, and it happens for various reasons. For starters, swimming pools are places often associated with relaxation and tranquility, so when we think of them in our dreams, it's natural for us to feel relaxed and calm. Swimming pools are also very common scenes in movies and TV shows, which means that we see them often and therefore we can easily use them in our dreams. A swimming pool can also represent the womb or the feeling of security and protection. 

It can also represent the deep unconscious in terms of water and the tiles on the side that represent the limit of your consciousness. It is also believed that we dream of swimming pools because of the way we breathe while we sleep. When we inhale, our diaphragm pushes down, causing the lungs to fill with air. The air then moves towards the water in the dream and bubbles up to the surface. This is what causes the bubbling sound and is the reason why we often dream of swimming pools.
