Dream symbol Landslide


landslide, crushing, slope, losing ground under the feet, instability

Depending on the slope of an area, a landslide is also called a slope or mountain landslide. In such an event, earth and rock masses get into a downward movement, and when this mass slides slowly downward, it is called an avalanche.

Favorable for the emergence of a landslide are deforestation or mining. Such a natural disaster sometimes occurs even locally in our latitudes.

When someone dreams of a landslide, they may feel overwhelmed by the force of nature or possibly panic. Perhaps the person in the dream also appears as a helper in distress. This dream could give reason to take a closer look at the respective personal life situation and thus enable an exact interpretation of this dream.

General dream interpretation

In general dream interpretation, a landslide stands for difficulties by which the dreamer is overwhelmed, or accordingly feels overrun. It could represent problems at work or in private matters that throw the person off track.

However, this dream symbol can also indicate an obstacle that has existed for a long time, and to which attention would like to be paid. In the dream this is represented to the dreamer as a landslide.

It can be expressed by this dream symbol how the person reacts or behaves in difficult situations. Perhaps he himself is surprised by the strength of his emotions in such circumstances, or the radicalism that appears in his behavior. If a dam is formed by a landslide, this may indicate worries due to uncertainty on certain matters related in life itself.

In addition, the landslide as a dream image can symbolize to the person concerned an existing fear of rough changes and the fear of losing the ground under his feet. Furthermore, it is important for the dream interpretation to which consequences this landslide has led in the dream. What was destroyed and what survived without any damage? What is important to the dreaming person in life and what can he rely on, what offers him reliability, are the questions.

In addition, the dream indicates the positions or situations in which desirable changes are in order. This dream encourages one to approach radical changes with courage.

Psychological dream interpretation

From the psychological point of view, catastrophes like in the dream of the "landslide" symbolize overwhelming or overpowering feelings. How often and in which life circumstances a destructive dream like this comes back is of important significance for the interpretation. If one dreams of a landslide in life phases of strong psychological burden, this dream serves primarily as an outlet through which stress coping occurs.

If this dream motif keeps returning to your dream, it can also be a warning that reflects your mental imbalance and could continue to harm you. Anxieties and frustrations could at some point affect you uncontrollably like a landslide.

Psychologically, the earth in dream interpretation stands as a symbol for the BEGINNING and END of life. Accordingly, this dream of the landslide indicates that the dreamer has difficulty accepting this infinite cycle of life. He is afraid that the ground will be pulled out from under him.

Spiritual dream interpretation

For spiritual dream interpretation the element of earth stands as an archetypal metaphor of femininity also called Mother Earth or in esoteric channel circles also Lady Gaia. It means rootedness, steadfastness and reality-based . Therefore one can interpret the landslide as an inner spiritual insecurity. An inner need for destruction could also be revealed by this dream image and possibly the dreamer questions the spiritual order.
