To dream of a puddle represents a minor setback, disappointments, or nuisance that you want to avoid. You may be experiencing a situation that slows you down. Issues or problems you want to “walk around.” Potential embarrassments are mindful to avoid. Feelings about having a bad day.
Negatively, puddles may reflect an excessive concern for avoiding imperfect behavior. Disappointing yourself if you aren’t behaving perfect. Over-sensitivity about potential problems. An uptight personality about a single minor setback. An overly-avoidant personality. An arrogant attitude that diminishes significant problems. A small view of a serious issue. Feeling that a major action that disrespected someone is not important to address because it will slow you down with your own achievements. Sensitivity about acknowledging small problems.
To dream of stepping in a puddle may represents feelings of accidentally creating a problem. Feeling that you weren’t as careful about problems or respecting other people feelings as you should have been. Disappointments about not behaving perfect. Feeling embarrassed that you weren’t as attentive as you could have been. Embarrassing yourself insulting someone and then telling yourself that “they should just get over it on their own.”
To dream of jumping in a puddle and laughing may represent feelings about not taking disappointments or setbacks seriously. Laughing at yourself during a setback or disappointment. Laughing at petty people for being too upset or strict. Laughing at petty issues that you think are stupid.
To dream of a puddle of blood may reflect feelings about evidence of failure, over-aggressive behavior, or criminal actions that you wish to avoid.
Example: A man dreamed of trying hard to avoid puddles. In waking life he was trying very hard to behave perfectly moral and faithful for God. The puddles may have reflected his feelings about the potential to let himself down if he wasn’t living a perfectly faithful life for God. Potential disappointments to himself if he didn’t maintain his perfect honest behavior. The dream may have been a sign that he was too concerned with avoiding dishonest behavior that he felt might embarrass God.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of seeing her baby son jumping in puddles and laughing. In waking life she was worried about her fiance spending money on their baby son when they were already having financial problems.
Example 3: A woman dreamed of seeing a puddle of blood. In waking life she was considering getting back surgery for a second time after her first surgery almost killed her. The puddle of blood in this case may have reflected her feelings about how evidently dangerous back surgery was from her last experience and her wish to avoid dying from the surgery.
