Dream meaning: Fire

FireOne of the four basic elements, fire is considered a masculine, active symbol, and a representative of our spirit or energy. It can represent immortality; resurrection; destructive, consuming forces; a source of nurturing and growth. It sometimes represents powerful or overwhelmingly emotion or motivation which can bring enlightenment or destruction; hence, it is related to birth or death and renewal motifs. As a symbol of transformation, it may refer to the maturation process; the growth of spirituality or reaching toward it. Associated with the god Vulcan, it is related to volcanoes. Menopausal women dream of fires more often that before menopause. People with AIDS and cancer may dream of spreading wildfires, reflecting the disease process.

    I dreamed there were jealous women who were trying to light my body on fire, when that didn’t work they tried to light my hair on fire and that didn’t work either.

    A woman keeps popping up in my dreams, her eyes and hair are made of fire. She just stares at me. She won’t say anything. I have had this dream for a couple of days now…I have no idea what it all means. I don’t like it, it scares me every time it happens. I wish I knew why I am having a dream like this…

    I had a dream I was standing in a large open area. In front of me were 4 large crosses and 2 men standing to the right of me. All 4 of the crosses went up in flames.
    The dream re-occurred 3 different times. Each time I awoke and went back to sleep the dream would re-play itself. The last time there was only 1 cross in front of me and it went up in flames immediately.

    I dreamed of God dressed in white from head to toe standing in lake of fire, but the flames never touched God.

    I dreamn’t last night that I was standing in a field, suddenly the ground shook and i could see a mound forming, like a massive mole hill, then from the sky fell a giant fire ball, i thought it was a star that had fallen, then the next thing i knew, more of them appeared, smaller but more consistent like fire rain. I had to run back to an apartment so that i wouldn’t burn.

    I had a dream where I saw fire flames and people were burning alive. As those images went, I also burned myself. I don’t know what this indicates.
