Dream symbol Thunderstorm


fire in the sky, god's wrath, punishment, lightning, thunder

In archaic times, thunder and lightning were already interpreted by people as symbols of God's wrath. The rebuking God who punishes people for their sins with a lightning strike on earth. Accordingly, people feared this loud thunder and lightning, which accompany a thunderstorm shining in the sky and can even cause large fires when falling asleep. Meteorologists have since thoroughly cleared up this superstition and yet sometimes you still hear this expression today. Superstition or not, a thunderstorm is not completely without danger, despite enlightenment. It doesn't change the fact that incoming lightning can cause great damage, and so can people who are struck by lightning.

General dream interpretation

An upcoming thunderstorm in a dream announces instantaneous changes for real life. Causes that cause a thunderstorm to break out can be suppressed, causing an over great tension to build up that needs and wants to invite itself in. These are entrenched patterns of the dreamer that need to be broken up in the waking world. A thunderstorm in a dream often has a powerful and violent, but also positive effect on the real world.

This dream symbol obviously involves strong emotions . The general interpretation interprets in the term "thunderstorm" great passion and intense feelings of love that come over him in real life.

Thundering lightnings stands on the dream level also for GODFURCHT and predicts much good. If the dreamer sees a thunderstorm in his sleep, all existing conflicts are blessed at the moment with good outcome.

If a thunderstorm appears to the person in his sleep in a free harvest field, then experiencing the thunderstorm in a free field could threaten deterioration in social and political spheres.

If a thunderstorm breaks and the dreamer stays in a protected shelter, then he will get out of a dangerous situation in the real world smoothly. Such a strong DISCHARGE is usually followed by sunshine, which heralds a positive turn. If the person dreams of a thunderstorm surprise in his sleep, then disaster could be waiting for him in the real state. On the other hand, a heavy thunderstorm is to be accepted as a very good fact, which in the waking world means that the course of business will proceed according to plan and successfully.

In order to make a new beginning possible, all BASE MISTAKES must be burned down, so that from the ashes something NEW can arise. At first sight a thunderstorm seems frightening and destructive, but everything is for the best of the person concerned.
