Tidal waves suggest that you are feeling extremely overwhelmed either emotionally or overwhelmed with responsibilities. Ask yourself what is it that is threatening to “sweep you away” emotionally or sweep you away from your normal routine.
The message is, just as the ocean ebbs and flows so will your current situation. In other words. hang in there. This too shall pass.
Waves can also refer to a wave of inspiration.
What in your life is ebbing and flowing like the ocean? What seems to come in and out of your life again and again?
