Dream Dictionary Earthquake

The earthquake is a powerful dream symbol because of how it is treated outside of the dream world. The way that most dream interpretation works, is taking the attributes of the thing that happened in the dream, or a thing that was witnessed in a dream, and then applying these physical attributes in a metaphorical way to the life of the dreamer in order to find out the meaning of dream. This may sound complicated on paper, but it is actually in fact quite simple, and this is the method employed by just about every modern psychologically based dream dictionary. There is no symbol easier to understand than that of the earthquake.

Experiencing an earthquake, according to multiple dream interpretations, means that a change is going to happen, and it is going to be a very abrupt and startling one. There are many different symbols which may signify change, such as a forked road, or a different hairstyle, or a divorce. However, what makes an earthquake so different as far as dream meanings are concerned is the abruptness with which it is associated.

Consider what happens when an earthquake occurs in real life. The initial quake is usually sudden, and unless it is associated with some other natural disaster that is already being reported on, then it is also without warning. There is a short period in which everything is thrown into complete chaos around you and a slightly shorter period where you are left to determine what is happening on your own, while dealing with this chaos. Then, after a few seconds, and after throwing many of your belongings across the room, or throwing you off balance, the earthquake is over and you will be left to clean up after it.

This is the essence of its dream meaning as well. When an earthquake occurs in the dream world, it means that a similar thing may happen to you soon in relation to your life. Perhaps someone that you love will leave you, or break up with you, throwing your life into complete disorder. It is also possible that you will end up taking on a business venture that will be financially unstable for you and lose you a lot of money.

Of course, even though an earthquake is usually associated with destruction in waking life, this does not mean necessarily that the change that the dream is predicting will be a negative one. This could mean that you will fall into a whirlwind love affair with the girl of your dreams, and suddenly be thrown into disarray. This is not negative disarray, but it is certainly an abrupt change from where you started in the beginning. Positive or negative, the definition that should be most closely associated with dreams about earthquakes is the sign of abruptness. An earthquake comes without warning, so whatever it is predicting about your future will be something that happens without warning. It will be a life changing and unpredictable occurrence, and one that you should definitely watch out for in the future.

I just had a dream. I drive a mustang 5speed just for reference. Anyways I was sitting in the passenger seat filling the center console.with im not sure with what. Then I get out and go to the trunk, but that parts missing for some reason and you can see into the backseat and the gas tank. And my stepdad and neighbors are in the back seat. And somehow we all ended up drunk from nowhere and I start slurring words. And he just backs the. Car out of the driveway and drives up OUR road. So with me in the backseat I reach up as he is driving and pull it out of gear. Then the car starts shaking like I put it in the wrong gear and then the whole dream is shaking violently and they can tell too not just me, and I could still tell what was happening and where we were. And then I woke up with a jolt and felt weak with hot sweats. But didn't shake in real life, any thoughts?

So I had a dream about an earthquake, and it felt so realistic that I woke up and I could only remember actually feeling my bed shake. So I get up, and I go to the garage.. (My dad is in the garage, he is an alcoholi and drug addict and is also addicted to smoking cigarettes) is in there, (as always, don't give me wrong I love my pops to death, but I go in there and he's high, and he's fell asleep on a chair. So I wake him up to tell him that there was a huge earth quake but he didn't believe me and went on back to sleep in a chair in the garage.. So I checked the news and nothing was on, so I was realized it was just a dream.. And so later on that night.. Maybe around 2 AM my parents are arguing, my dad's punching holes in the walls, he threatens to hit my mom, and I wake up to my mom crying and telling my sister to call the police, so I'm really terrified because I hate when they argue and I don't want them to split, but so anyways the cops come and they tell him that he needs to say at his parents house for the night so they pick him up, and my mom is crying tears of horrific destruction and she is saying that we are gonna make my dad leave us and tell him that if he doesn't get help that he will never come back, my point is, there was an unexpected huge change only hours after I had the dream of the earthquake. I thought I'd share this..

I'd be interested to gain ideas as to what it may mean when you are causing earthquakes in a dream. I had a dream the other night where many people were converging on me and I defended myself by, to borrow the term from the animated series "Avatar: The Last Airbender," "earthbending." I was opening the ground and raising walls of earth, causing bridges people were trying to cross to get at me to crumble so they could not attack me.

There is a lot available about interpreting an earthquake happening in a dream, but I'm piecing together how to sort out having the ability to cause them in a dream.

I had a dream last night about an earthquake too.
In my dream, my friends were also there with me to celebrate something. But then when we were about to go home, there was a news that there will be a tsunami.
Then, in the land that we were standing in was shaking! Then I told them that we should go somewhere faraway from water and that we can't go home for now.
But what they did was the opposite and still went on to a place beside a river and each of them looked for a place to hide. Some of my friends went to hide underground. I don't know where and how they found that place, but I still followed them and hid underground.
Then when I entered underground, they were gone and I was left alone. So what I did was to look for them and I was suddenly carrying with me a candle to look for the way out again. But then I can't find the way out and was trapped.

Then after that, everything went black and I woke up earlier than my alarm time..

Right now, I dont know but I think it has something to do about my parents. Because in the last few days, they are not talking to each other and my mom is angry and disappointed with my dad because she feels like her life is miserable because of him.  :(
It hurts me to see my parents act like strangers under one roof.
I don't even want to side to neither of them because it will hurt the other.

So I always dream about tornados and tsunamis i don't know why; I always have but I never dream about earthquakes. In my dream I was talking to an aquintance in a hallway of a huge three story house and I felt a little shake but when I mentioned it she said she didn't feel it. So I disregarded the rumble. We walked into a bedroom and we're talking and the next thing I knew the house was shaking abruptly, so she ran into the doorway to protect herself. I had to struggle to get past her to find a doorway to stand in. I stood in a doorway directly across from hers and pulled out my phone to check for any alerts or phone calls from family. In my dream I remember thinking that everyone was fine and safe and that I was in the most danger. When I looked back up from checking my phone the girl that was in the doorway across from me was crying and begging that I had her phone. I felt bad but I didn't have it for her. Then I could feel the house leaning and cracking slowly. The way that it was leaning was almost as if my feet were about to start dangling out from under me as I gripped onto the doorway ledge to keep from falling. I begged her to let me share her doorway because she was able to stay upright and I was afraid I'd fall and the house would collapse onto me. She kept telling me no and then the nails that we're holding the trim down on my doorway started protruding out-stabbing towards me, which I even knew in the dream was completely unrealistic. The nails caused me to stagger my fingers to avoid from being pierced and suddenly I had no available grasp left on the doorway. I ducked under the criss-crossed nails that had pushed themselves into my once safe haven. I then remember frantically running thoughout the top story of the house searching for a doorway that would provide safety but nails started coming through all of them and then I woke up..... Right now in my life I just found out my best friend will be traveling soon, and I do not have enough money to continue going to college.... Both of those things came up very suddenly and unexpected.

I wanna share my dream and what i experienced after ...2nights ago i had a dream that i was at school and suddenly the ground started to shake the weird part was that there was no one in the classroom, i was the only one There. As the tremrs began it ijust kept getting more intense the clock fell from the wall. I aimed for cover underneath the table. But it just didnt stop it felt like the end of the world. Well after waking up my husband started an arguement. Out of the blue over taking him to the store and.i telling him to wait till i finish eating. It escalated it wasnt normal because our realitionship is fantastic but his family dont like me but he wouldnt let it get him cuz he knows. Me well. But all of a sudden he began mentioning his family and suddenly turned on me and became my enemy he threw all my clothes from the closet and stuffed it in a bag and asked me to leave he said soo many hurtful things. We have a 5yr old son together. Its not about me but our son and hid fam. Caused this senseless issue. But the dream was a revelation as to what was about to haopen .

I had a dream last night. Keep in mind theres been a bunch of earthquakes going on right now in California . In my dream im in a house in the living room and im with sone people I cant really remember but I do remember my little sister being there and we are chilling. I think I was folding laundry. All of a sudden theres a huge earthquake. It felt so real . Ilost my balance and I could see my little sister scared so was I . In this dream I knew we werent going to make it because it was the hardest earthquake Ive felt and because everything was falling and breaking off . All of a sudden I noticed that I grabbed my little sister and held her .. im speaking to her. Trying to comfort her by telling her that she will be alright I was shielding her with my body. I was willing to sacrifice my life in ant way to keep her from being scared or from getting crushed or simply dieing. Im telling her everything will be alright and then i start losing hppe as well and I start crying with her.but im holding her with all my might. In my dream I could see what im doing but its like I have another pair of eyes where I can see and notices different things in my dream. While im there hugging my sister thinking our world is about to end.from this different perspective I can see that me and my little sister were floating ib mid air. Like if the earthquake was so powerful it changed the gravitational force on earth.we were floating and our surroundings was just spinning around us out of control. There was alot of light in my dream though. When I woke up . I looked over to my sisters bed to make sure she okay n she was. I woke up like an earthquake indeed abruptly.

I had a really weird dream that I had forgot my instrument at my house and I needed it for an upcoming rehearsal (band) and one of my best freinds forgot something at her house too. We both agreed on a stupid idea on trying to run to our house to grab the stuff we needed (it was only a 15 m break and we aren't even allowed to go out of school, which I find really weird because we are both honor roll students who NEVER get in trouble so it's kind of scary we agreed to even get out of school.) So after a while I was walking past another school and a small earthquake occur, yet all the students were outside for some reason. Weird.

Last nite I had a dream that I was in a church, in a church hall located at the bottom of the church. Then a earthquake hit. The priest grabbed what he could to hold himself up. The concrete was split open. The quake stopped. Everyone was fine. I woke up and got some water. When I went back to sleep, I had the same dream again.
I think change is on the way. I remember reading the bible, an earthquake that happened when Jesus rose from the dead. Perhaps a renewal is on its way.

Dream last night was of a vehicle going up a dirt road, it was not me driving, but I seen and felt what the

driver felt. As the ground started to shake violently and caused the mountains to crumble and move. Huge

rocks were hued from the ground, with no way of escape, the vehicle was turned around and there was a

gigantic boulder rolling parallel to the vehicle, ready to roll down and crush it. Then everything stopped,

and the rock stopped rolling and settled, held in place by a thread. A stream was blocked, causing it to start

to dam up behind. Crews were called in to blast the rubble.
down stream gigantic reptiles were piled up and stuck in the fence. A man skinned one of the animals that

seemed to be a dinosaur with hair. He gave the head to his son to show his friends in school the grotesque

monster, and how the skin could pull back from its face to revel a more frightening blue colored face behind

the first. I have never seen any thing like this in my life. Very strange indeed!

I have had 2 dreams about earthquakes in the past two days. One yesterday and one last night. Both were about the same but the one I recall the most is last night. --------------------------------------------------- -------
I was at school doing math and then I hear a roar (ROAAR) my table group and I look at each-other and before we could say anything the ground starts shaking incredibly and my teacher screams "GET UNDER YOUR DESKS" we didn't question her we got our selves in there. I looked at the glass all shattered I look at the lights they are all swinging. It went on and on and we could here screams from across the room. (The other class) and just as easy as it begun it had stopped some kids where closing there eyes shut closed. And wouldn't get up. I got up sat on my chair and looked at everyone, I saw their petrified faces. I was also scared but I was just in shock. ---Then I woke up .
--------------------------------------------------- ---------------
My grandfather also had a dream about a quake. And I knew something might happen. We are in the Bay Area where we are waiting for "The Big One" I have faith god will protect us. So be ready San Francisco it's going to come one day or another, just be open and search for him, he will help you.

My earthquake always starts off slow , in my dream I was going up a mountain highway well just about to that is. And I'm driving past at the base of the mountain about to go up and I see a bunch of bodies everywhere. People being piled up and we go to as a worker Whats happenning and he says people are falling off the mountain while driving. We decided to wait for less people driving the mountain. And then a big massive truck falls from one side of a large hill that we just came from it rolled down crushing many beneath it; we all run. Then the rumbling begins and a piece of the mountainwe were waiting to drive up to falls. We all run the opposite direction, and some people go into water , there was an ocean next to us and I can see the waves begin to sway and begin to get larger. I look in all directions as all of this happens then as if my own body knew I didn't want to see what happens next I awaken.

Last night.. Dreamt of an amzingly powerful earthquake. Was upstairs in a house (in America, I'm sure of that) that I have been in before in a similar dream, the quake hit from nowhere with absolutely no warning whatsoever. Initially it was so powerful with huge lateral forces that it just threw me off of my feet, it felt incredibly real. I managed to get back on my feet to get to the window where a neighboring house just collapsed in a huge cloud of dust and then I knew I had to get out of the house. Everything still shaking I grabbed my kids and made my way outside. It was at that point I woke up feeling very anxious. This is the second time I've had this dream but this time the quake was massive in comparison. Will wait and see what life throws at me now!
