I am in a medium to large sized boat out on the ocean with people I don't recognise. Suddenly we are sucked into a whirlpool and I can see the water's edge as we spiral around the pool. I am afraid of getting stuck in this vortex, sucked into the depths and not knowing how or where we will end up. It's all very real and vivid, I am thinking - this is it, this is the end as I watch on paralysed with fear. And then we are out of it and I feel relieved the ordeal is over, we have somehow escaped.

Dream notes and associations
Something about being sucked into a stuck situation resonates. Escaping the whirlpool relates to a course of action I have recently applied and a more optimistic mindset about a life situation.
My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening
Fear of being sucked into the depths. Relief at narrow escape.
