I don't dream much, maybe once a month, but when I do I have this reoccurring dream or I guess nightmare when I and I'm in (for lack of other words) in soul crushing dark cold water. I just float devoid of emotion until eventually just beyond the horizon I see a pale white yellow light and I feel this inkling of hope that you feel in your chest because all of a sudden I have a direction to head. Up. I realize that the light is above me. I have to swim up. The closer I get to the surface the more I can feel warmth flow through me. But when I finally touch the surface I realize that it is hard and smooth and cold like glass, but it lacks fragility glass has. I pound and pound on the wall because all of a sudden my lungs miss the air that I know is on the other side. But then eventually I realize that I am never going to break through and ice water runs through my veins. And I sink.   
   
I have never realized what a great metaphor this dream was for my trials with depression and anxiety. This post has really opened my eyes to a new part of my psyche.    
   
Now to combat the seriousness of this comment I present you with this gif.

sounds like that rumor of the stairs dream

some have said that if you dream of running up stairs, its your soul trying to leave your body and if you get to the top of the stairs, you die

for you, sounds like you feel trapped confined in your mortal body and your soul wants out, and its trying to break out to embrace death, and your sinking is returning to your body to keep living

I don't know if that makes me feel better or worse...

well on deeper thought
its either your body dying and the soul trying to break out......

or on better news, you could be trying to astral project your soul somewhere to explore and it takes a month to charge up the bio-energy to push your soul outwards, but is blocked by possible skepticism of the supernatural

pray tell, what is your overall opinion on the paranormal/supernatural, do you believe that weird **** can happen or are you a skeptic?

Overall, I suppose I believe that energy and matter are basically two sides of the same coin. Which means while I still hold my skepticism to energy based forms of the paranormal, but I do not completely refute it like I do folkloric paranormal or supernatural activity like giants, monsters and so on. I do not think they are based in reality though the story may of originated in reality and been warped by time.

In all honesty, though I think the metaphor of the dream can be expanded a million different ways. It is weird to think that I could ponder it for years and come no closer to an answer even though I know it lays within my own my. It is like trying to recall a word you are looking for or someone's name that you know you will remember the second they tell you.

well given that, it seems you believe that physical manifestations of paranormal, you deny the spiritual, so that could be your dream
your spirit wants to be free to wander but is held back by your lack of faith in it
