This could be triggered by some unfinished feeling in your waking life. The dream could also reflect aspects of yourself that were prominent or developed when you were living in your hometown. Did you abandon certain values or ideals when you moved to the big city? Did you forget some aspect of yourself and who you really are?

To dream of your hometown represents feelings of familiarity or returning to your beginnings. Enjoying experiencing yourself being remembered by someone from your past. Remembering what your life was like before you moved on to bigger things. Remembering or acknowledging your roots. Situations where you feel you are always welcomed or belonging.

Negatively, a hometown may reflect feelings about having to remember unpleasantness or bitter relationships you've moved on. Feelings of familiarity that you don't like. Having to be remembered by people you don't want to be remembered by. Feelings of fear or embarrassment that you proved yourself to be a failure to people that remember you.

Example: A elderly woman near death had recurring dreams of getting ready to visit her hometown. In waking life she died a few months after these dreams. The hometown scenery may have reflected her thoughts about returning to heaven where she felt she would meet all kinds of familiar people from her past that already died.


Merry Go Round

To dream that you are on a merry-go-round indicates a fear of reliving your childhood. You feel that you are going nowhere or in a state of stagnation. Or you may be expressing some anxiety about your transition into adulthood. Alternatively, it suggests that you are in the beginning stages of romantic love.

To see a merry-go-round in your dream represents childish joy.


Mineral Water

Water Balloon

To see or throw a water balloon in your dream symbolizes an outburst of emotions. You are venting your frustrations and anger in an indirect and playful way. You have difficulties experiencing your true feelings.

Water Cooler

Water Fountain

To see or drink from a water fountain indicates that you are feeling emotionally refreshed and rejuvenated.

To dream of a water fountain represents mental and emotional stability. You aren't caring about problems, or are capable of comfortably reflecting on them. Negativity or uncertainty is passing with ease or easy to control. Emotional or psychological control over issues that were previous difficult to think about.

If the fountain begins to overflow, or the water level rises this represents a return to caring about problems.

Example: A man dreamed of seeing a water fountain that almost overfilled before going back to normal. In waking life he was dealing with anxiety about a problem he had that went away, but left him a bit insecure that it might come back.
