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.

Had an earthquake dream last night. I was sitting alone in my living room and it started gradually but kept getting more intense. The room was shaking bad enough that my vision was blurred by the motion.

It was about that time that I realized that the living room I was in was an amalgam of several living rooms of places I grew up in. I knew I was dreaming and became concerned that I would wake my wife (thought I must be shaking too). It took a while to wake myself from the dream while the earthquake continued. I woke up and must not have been moving or calling out as the wife was still sound asleep.

I haven't noted any major changes (recent past or present) that would qualify.

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.
