DAM

A dream featuring a dam suggests that you are feeling a lack of strength or power, or something is getting in the way of your progress in some area of your life. Alternatively, the dream can imply that you have built up emotions or you are feeling some kind of frustration in some aspect of your life.

If you are building a dam or see a dam being built in the dream then it can suggest that you are being defensive or reserved.

To see a dam breaking open or bursting can imply that you are not able to deal with emotional situations or you are feeling emotionally overwhelmed.
