Dreams: Drowning in Death?

For the last few days I have had a lot of stress in my life, and my dreams have started to reflect that:

For some reason I was in a small airplane with about 8 other random people; Some of them I actually went to high school with.  The person flying the plane crashed into a semi frozen lake. Marley (My Dog) was in the plane with us. I remember him falling from the plane and through the ice into the water. We hit the water, but ti wasn’t cold, it was room temperature. Everyone managed to get out of the lake and onto a dock type thing, except Marley. I took a flashlight (I have no idea where this came from, it just appeared) in my mouth and went under to look for him… I had to turn my flashlight off though once I got a little ways down because there were so many dead bodies in the water and they scared the crap out of me. They were not people that I knew, and they had been there a while. I pushed them out of the way and found Marley, but he swam away. I gave up when I had to come back up for air, and headed back to the surface where we was already waiting on the dock. I jumped out of the water and back tot he dock where everyone was. 

And that was how it ended. This dream bothered my all morning, so I looked some some of the meanings.

“To dream that a plane crashes suggests that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself.  Your goals may be too high and are impossible to realize. You are in danger of having it come crashing down. Alternatively, your lack of confidence, self-defeating attitude and self-doubt toward the goals you have set for yourself is represented by the crashing airplane; you do not believe in your ability to attain those goals. Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.”

To see a dog in your dream symbolizes intuition, loyalty, generosity, protection, and fidelity. The dream suggests that your strong values and good intentions will enable you to go forward in the world and bring you success. The dream dog may also represent someone in your life who exhibits these qualities. Alternatively, to see a dog in your dream indicates a skill that you may have ignored or forgotten. If the dog is vicious and/or growling, then it indicates some inner conflict within yourself. It may also indicate betrayal and untrustworthiness. If the dog is dead or dying, then it means a loss of a good friend or a deterioration of your instincts.

Dreaming of a dead body or a corpse is often connected to your happiness. Unfortunately this dream indicates possible difficult times ahead. The horror and disgust with which we entertain thoughts of death shows that we have uncertainty for the future. A dead body in a dream usually represents regret, nostalgia, disappearance, broken relationships, and mistrust in love.

That gives me quite a bit of interesting insight into my dream, and certainly gives me a lot to think about.
