Did you dream of an earthquake? Learning what an earthquake means in your dreams can help you understand your current thoughts and feelings about a situation in your life.
What does it mean to dream of earthquakes?
An earthquake is a natural event that occurs when the ground shakes. Earthquakes occur in our physical world as a result of changes in the earth’s crust or when there is volcanic activity.
Understanding why earthquakes occur in real life can help us understand what earthquakes can symbolize in dreams. Here are some common themes that are present in dreams about an earthquake.
A ground earthquake often occurs suddenly and without warning. If you are going through rapid changes in your life, it can literally feel like the whole world is falling apart. Dreaming of an earthquake can mean that you are not sure that you are going to go through new changes in your life.
If your current life seems pretty routine, it may mean that something significantly destructive to the Earth happened in your past. It could also mean that you are harboring feelings about something that may surface unexpectedly.
Change routines and find variety
An earthquake literally “shakes things up.” If you feel that your life has become very routine and boring, then this dream can be a subtle message to try something new. It may be an indication that you are afraid of making changes . You may be worried that making changes to your current life will have devastating effects instead of being a change for the better.
This dream may be especially about change if you see other common dream symbols that suggest change and transformation. For example, dreaming of people dying in an earthquake or even an apocalypse situation can suggest change and transformation in a dream.
Resistance and recovery
Sometimes an earthquake in a dream means that everything may be difficult for a short time, but you will be able to overcome it. This is especially true if you dream of an earthquake and survive through it without harming yourself or your personal property. If you escape harm when an earthquake occurs in a dream, your higher self is sending you a message that even if you are upset, everything will be fine and recovery will be easy for you.
If you are rebuilding or cleaning up after an earthquake in a dream , this means that you are able to recover and bounce back from difficult situations easily.
Can dreaming of an earthquake predict that one will happen in real life?
Dreaming of an earthquake can also be a very literal dream. However, just because you dream of an earthquake, it does not necessarily mean that one will occur as a result of the dream.
Often, especially if you live in an earthquake-prone area, you may have this dream as a subconscious way of expressing fear and anxiety about an earthquake. If you live in an earthquake-prone place, there’s a good chance an earthquake will happen in the future, even if you haven’t dreamed of one!
Other meanings of dreams of earthquakes
If you hurt yourself during sleep, this indicates that you are afraid that if something bad happens you will not be able to quickly recover your losses. Sometimes an earthquake in a dream can occur in conjunction with symbols related to wealth, finances, and business. If you dream of property damage or dream of losing money as a result of the earthquake, it is very likely that you are afraid of experiencing losses.
Earthquakes can also be a natural dream to have when mourning the loss of a loved one . Often when someone we love dies, we feel like our whole life is turned upside down, especially if the person is someone close to you.
If in your dream you have visions of something that reminds you of someone who has recently passed away, it is most likely a release dream to help you process these painful feelings and emotions.
If you dream that someone dies as a result of an earthquake , this may mean that a part of yourself or the relationship with the person you dreamed about is changing.
If the person is known, it may mean that you can make a quick and swift change in how you look or how you feel about something in your life. If it is a dream in which the person is a stranger, it could mean that her relationship with the other is undergoing changes that she is not sure about.
