Tranquillity is sought by all those – such as the ascetic or monk – who search for the spiritual within themselves. Known by many names, it is one concept which spans all religions, and is the ‘peace which passeth all understanding’.
Psychological / emotional perspective: As a sanctuary from the hurly burly of waking life, tranquillity in dreams can be encouraged by choosing to empty the mind of daily concerns before sleep. This gives the dreaming mind the ability to work more efficiently to process the material of the unconscious and reach for true peace.
Material aspects: Tranquil environments and landscapes in dreams have the facility to allow us to rebalance ourselves and our mental processes. Stress in daily life requires us to take in more and more information and at a certain point chaotic dreams can often be contrasted or followed with peaceful ones as though the mind is demonstrating the possibilities.
Psychologically, we need encouragement to develop the ability to ‘hold fast’ during a period of instability.
If we can ride out the storm we shall survive. When an anchor is being dragged during a dream, the external forces are too great for us.

1- Immobility in a dream can be extremely frightening. This feeling very often occurs as the dreamer is beginning to learn more about themselves.
A feeling of oppression and of not being able to move usually indicates that the dreamer needs to, quite literally; sit still and be immobile within their ordinary everyday lives. They need to achieve a kind of stillness which is foreign to most people, and therefore initially- frightening. while later on it can be a state of peace and tranquillity.
2- To be immobilised in a dream usually indicates that we have created circumstances around us which are now beginning to trap us. We need to remain absolutely still until we have decided what the appropriate action needs to be, and then we can move forward in an appropriate way. Often such a dream comes when we arc facing the darker side of ourselves that which could be called evil.
A superhuman effort needs to be made to overcome what is holding us down.

An incense burner or holder in a dream represents a certitude that is praiseworthy. Perfume in a dream basically means good, though to a bedridden person it means death. This category includes amber, henna plant (Lawsonia inermis, bot.), or fumigating oneself with sweet incense, though there is a danger that could arise from the smoke in the dream. Perfuming oneself with amber in a dream means increase in earnings that will come through the labor of a rich person who is associated with the one seeing the dream.
The seeds of any dark colored perfume such as carnation, clove, or their powder, etcetera, means receiving praises.
The elements encompassed herein include richness after poverty, knowledge after ignorance, peace with one’s adversaries, bribery, divulging one’s secrets, ingratiating oneself to a superior for personal gains, or adulation.

Incense in a dream also means using charm to bring peace, tranquillity and profits if one intends so in his dream. (Also see Aloe perfume; Civet; Frankincense; Ud)... Islamic Dream Interpretation
1- The mandala is a sacred shape which is so powerful that it is found in one form or another in most religions. Typically, it is a circle enclosing a square with a symbol in the centre representing the whole of life. It is mostly used as an aid to meditation.
The principle is that one travels from the outer circle (which stands for the whole of existence) through the creation of matter the square to the centre of existence the central figure. Finally, one moves back out to take one’s place in material existence again. It is often consciously depicted as an eight- pointed star, and represents both man’s aspirations and his burdens. It often appears in dreams in this form, and can then become a personal symbol of the journey from chaos to order. It has also been found that, in a healing process, this symbol will occur over and over again. It is seen more frequently in Eastern religions, often as ornate pictures or patterns.
2- Jung judged this figure to be an important part of psychological wholeness.
The word means ‘circle’, and he saw the mandala as being an archetypal expression of the soul. In dreams this figure often appears without the dreamer knowing what it represents. It is only when it is drawn afterwards that it is recognised as a mandala. This would suggest that it is a true expression of the dreamer’s individuality and of his connection with Unity, whatever lie sees this to be.
3- When ego and individuality are understood, the soul searches for representation.
The expression of wholeness and vet separateness in this figure moves us into a space which enables us to create a whole new concept of the principles of existence. Often, by creating and recreating this figure, we move towards and experience a wholeness and tranquillity which would not otherwise be available.
The particular shape, number of sides, and colours in the mandala will be significant (see Shape, Numbers and Colour).
The mandala seen in dreams can become a gauge for spiritual progression.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

Dreaming of a pool deals with our need for the understanding of our own emotions and inner feelings.
A pool in a wood, for instance, would suggest the ability to understand our own need for peace and tranquillity.
An urban swimming pool might signify our need for structure in our relationships with other people, whereas a pool in the road would suggest an emotional problem to be got through before carrying out our plans.
In order to understand ourselves we may need to explore the pool by totally immersing ourselves in it, that is, to become involved in our own emotions. How we deal with what arises (in more senses than one) will teach us a lot about ourselves.
The pool may suggest a form of cleansing, particularly of old traumas and emotions or of past misdeeds.
The most potent image of that is baptism by immersion.
3- There is a meditation or guided imagery technique which can enhance one’s ability to dream. First, you picture yourselves walking in a field. Feel the grass beneath your feet and the wind on your face. Walk towards a slight dip in the ground which is to your left. At the bottom of this dip there is a pool which is surrounded by trees. Sit quietly by the pool, simply thinking about your life. When you are ready, stand up and walk into the pool very slowly. Feci the water rising slowly up your body until you are immersed completely. At that point let go of all the tensions of the everyday world and concentrate on the peace which is within. Then slowly emerge from the pool, and again sit quietly beside it. When you arc ready, walk back to the point in the field where you started, and let the image fade. By practising this, gradually it will be found that the dream images take on a deeper meaning....

If you are currently experiencing a period of tranquillity and peace, you may be dreaming about calm waters and gentle ocean waves. This dream suggests that you may be gathering energy and recharging emotionally. However, more commonly people dream of violent and dangerous tidal waves. Tidal waves or tsunamis suggest a period of emotional upheaval. Anxiety, stress, and unconscious materials may be coming to the surface and affecting your daily moods. Giant tidal waves may symbolize current emotional unhappiness and psychological stress, which are threatening to destroy you.
The outcome of this dream may reveal how much strength you have to “ride out” personal storms.
For example, surviving the tidal wave suggests that you have enough strength to overcome challenges and drowning that you may be “in it over your head” and should seek assistance.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
