What does it mean when you dream about floating?

Dreams in which one simply floats can indicate freedom, as reflected in the expression “free-floating.” Floating through the air can have the same meaning as flying. Large bodies of water are frequently symbols of the unconscious, so floating in calm waters indicates being at peace with the unconscious. A curious aside—pregnant women often have floating dreams.

Floating

(dreams)
Floating in water can be symbolic of floating on top of your emotions and being in harmony with the unconscious. Floating through the air has the same symbolism as flying. Floating usually represents your current feelings of peacefulness and general freedom. On a more negative note, floating could also be symbolic of your aloofness, lack of connection, or a need to become more grounded. In order to interpret any dream appropriately, some self-evaluation and honesty is required. Meaning of dreams is very personal and specific for each dreamer.
