To dream of a canoe represents your feelings of ease and adaptability as you navigate uncertainty or negative situations. Self-determination as you confront change and life challenges. You are emotionally balanced, feeling powerful, and in control. Confronting problems the way you want to. Choosing how best confront a terrible situation on your own terms. Confidently navigating uncertain or negative events with a relaxed adult attitude.
To dream of a canoe that is upside down represents abandonment or neglect of your self-determination during a uncertain or negative situation. You may feel unable to easily navigate uncertainty in your life or deal with problems on your own terms.
Negatively, a canoe may reflect a selfish attitude about not having to listen to anyone else during a crisis or negative situation. Ignoring others feelings during a crisis or moment of powerful uncertainty. Alternatively, it may reflect feelings about having to do things on your own during a difficult situation when you may not want to.
Positively, a canoe may reflect a need to ignore arrogant or less intelligent people during a negative situation so you handle problems however you feel is best. Enjoying doing things for yourself during a difficult or uncertain situation.
To dream of a canoe filling up with water or flipping over while you are using it may reflect feelings about yourself being inexperienced at handling difficult situations without oversight. Feelings that you weren't as prepared or practiced enough to do deal with problems in your own.
Example: A man dreamed of being in a canoe with his wife and then falling out and seeing the canoe go off without him. In waking life his wife was heavily pregnant and he after he made one mistake trying to support her he felt that his wife preferred to handle the rest of the pregnancy on her own.
