What are possible meanings for dreams of beaches?
The beach in a dream can symbolize where two parts of you or your life meet. Most commonly it’s where the unconscious mind and conscious mind meet, but there are other possibilities. For example, the beach can symbolize your rational mind, and the water of the ocean can symbolize emotions. A shoreline can be an analogy for the emotions and feelings that arise out of you.
It can symbolize where the masculine (land, yang) and feminine (ocean, yin) meet. No matter what your gender, you have elements of both genders in you, and they are rooted in the foundation of your psyche. See: Vaginas
Another analogy is that the ocean represents possibilities, and the shoreline represents reality.
The conscious mind emerges from the unconscious the way land rises out of the sea, so a beach or shoreline is a ready-made symbol for newly conscious aspects of yourself. These aspects are often perceived at first as strange, and can take forms in dreams as strange sea creatures or clumps of unrecognizable stuff washed up on the shore. In time, you will get to know these new aspects of yourself and they will become more recognizable.
The beach can symbolize a new phase of life. You’ve reach new land, in a sense.
The beach is associated with vacations and idle time, so dreaming about a beach can indicate desire for, or thoughts related to, travel and rest. It might indicate a longing for the easy life or, conversely, for adventure, especially if water sports are involved.
The shoreline is commonly used in media and advertising to portray times when a person is reminiscing or reflecting on life.
Looking into the distance from a beach can symbolize trying to discern what is approaching in the future, or keeping attention on some distant goal, pursuit, or event.
If you reach a coast or beach after a voyage, it can symbolize being on firm ground, meaning a more secure place in your life, or feeling ready for whatever comes next.
Taking off from a shoreline can symbolize embarking on a new journey in life. See: Embarking, Journeys

My legs were gone and it was freakin awesome.
It was a sunny but mild day on the beach, and I had no legs.
I was running around on my hands. I'm lightweight and I'd do that often if my useless leg and useless-by-proxy leg weren't in the way. But they were magically gone (good thing it wasn't a dream about using a kitchen countertop or carrying a box of stuff upstairs).
So I ran over to a stromatolite and "stood" on it and felt the heat leach into my hands while my cousin or whatever ran ahead--I stood almost as tall as this kid--then had no trouble keeping pace with him as he ran down the beach. No one batted an eye and he never looked back to see if he'd left me behind. I felt like an AT-ST from Star Wars. I was a mile tall and unstoppable.
And then I had a dream someone was keeping me hostage so she could inject me with bugs. Whatever. PSA: cartilage damage is forever.

Meaning of NOT being killed by the killer in my dream?
So last night I had what seemed like a nightmare. A group of friends and I went to the beach and on our drive back, every time we’d stop somewhere one of my friends would go missing and be found dead. We discovered that it was a murderer who was following us but when it came to the point where he took me and I thought he was going to kill me, we just ended up hanging out, walking through the woods, and talking, until he let me go. It sounds so stupid and it doesn’t make any sense. Is there any meaning behind this or is it just a nonsense dream?

I fall asleep asking myself what should I do with my relationship. This is the dream I had:
I was in an unknown place, there was a gas station, I believe I was on the highway. I knew I had to go to a beach that I go every year for holidays, my parents have a house there and my boyfriend's parents too. I was in between the city where I used to live and the beach (they are two hours apart).
I was waiting that someone could pick me up until I saw an old lover I had (we didn't end up well, he really messed up with myself) and we started chatting, and I'm like 'hmm maybe he THINKS about me after all' as an ego trip, not expecting to fall in love again or anything. Everything was going good until he meets her girlfriend. She was blonde (he once told me that a tarotist told him that he was going to marry a blonde girl - I'm not)
Then, in this place I see a couple, that are friends of my actual boyfriend, we talked about their baby, about coronavirus, and she didn't want me to hug her because of the virus. I was happy because I could prove this guy that I didn't need him and that I knew people. I ask them if they can give me a ride, and I don't remember what happens next. But, I think that I'm stuck in this place.

I think I was sent a message through a dream. Is this possible?
A little background: my ex (I’ll call him X) and I broke up about 6 years ago, and ceased all communication a little over 5 years ago. I met and started dating my current boyfriend (I’ll call him Y) a few months later. X started dating someone and married her a few years ago.
The dream: I remember walking into a pretty nice, but random beach house. Upon walking in, X was standing in the living room and he asked, “so, how’d it go?” to which I replied “it was tough, but I finally got the last of it.” - apparently, I was talking about getting a few remaining items from my Y, thus totally ending our relationship. X was divorced and I had recently broken up with Y. There was no cheating that lead to this, we just got in contact after the end of both of our relationships. Anyway, the remainder of the dream, we kissed, we talked about different things (mostly catching each other up on things we had missed in each other’s lives from the past 5 years), and held each other.
The dream had me shook when I woke up. It was eerily real. I haven’t heard X’s voice or touched him in 5 years, but without a doubt, I can tell you the voice in the dream was 100% his voice. When he hugged, held hands, kissed, anything, it felt exactly like him. It was all instantly recognizable.
Now here’s the weird part:
I honestly hadn’t even thought of X since I started dating Y. When X and I cut communication, we cut everything, no social media, nothing. Occasionally my friends texted me updates about him, but after he got engaged, I told them not to send me updates about him anymore because I didn’t care to know. I can say before this dream, I honestly hadn’t had even a passing thought about X.
But, after this dream, I weirdly could not shake the idea of him being divorced and I had no idea why, I mean seriously, the thought had not even occurred to me prior to the dream. So the night following the dream I did some digging and sure enough, his divorce was finalized 6 weeks prior to the dream.
I feel so weirded out because I hadn’t talked, thought or dreamed about X in years. I don’t think the divorce concept of the dream was prophetic because I didn’t “dream it into existence,” it already existed.
So I feel like somehow I was sent a message about his divorce, that lead me to find out that he was divorced. Is that a thing? Or is my dream just random coincidence?
