Dream interpretation End of the World

There is no question that dreaming of a devastating nuclear explosion, a supervolcano, or some other "end of the world" event can leave you upset for days on end. On the other hand, it is important to realize that people across time probably had similar dreams featuring the most destructive things they could think of. When you have these dreams, they are not just an opportunity to recognize the severity of certain stresses in your life, they can also give you a few things to be thankful for upon awakening to a perfectly normal world.

General Dream Meaning: End of the World

Overall, dreams of the end of the world are not pre-cognitive in nature. On the other hand, they can easily symbolize that some aspect of your life is making you feel like your personal role in the world will soon be over. This may be related to fears of losing your job, home, romantic partner, or even fears about developing some type of illness. You may also want to interpret this dream as an ending of a significant change in some aspect of your life. Even if the change has to do with inner landscape matters, you can, and should look forward to new beginnings. In fact, if you are trying to get rid of a bad habit, a dream about the end of the world may just be the perfect time to symbolically bury that bad habit and start over with a brand new lease on life.

How Dream Symbol End of the World may Fit in your Life

When you can see the relationship between ends and beginnings, you may come to look forward to dreams featuring the end of the world. Among other things, these dreams will shake up your thought processes and give you a chance to see everything in a new light. From there, you will be in a better position to decide what things you want to keep in your life, and which things you don't want to keep. In addition, if you are afraid of something going seriously wrong with some part of your life, this may be a perfect time to confront your fears and look for ways to maneuver around the situation.

A Sample Dream, End of the World Dream Interpretation

Consider a dream where you are taking a walk on a nice sunny day. All of a sudden, you notice five missiles streaking over your head. Even though you know they are nuclear warheads, you do not think much beyond wondering where they will land. Next, you are transported to a scene high up in the atmosphere. You watch as one missile appears to chase the other. As you watch, you hear your supervisor saying that the collision of these two missiles will result in the end of the world. Before long, the two missiles collide. You feel a sight jolt, and then your entire field of vision goes white. In your last thoughts, you know that all life has ceased to exist, and then everything slowly fades to black.

You awaken more frightened than you have ever been in your life. Slowly, you get out of bed and notice that it is a rainy day. While you usually do not like rain, you are grateful for it today, as well as the sound of coffee brewing in the kitchen.

Since your supervisor features as a key person in the dream, you can consider this dream to be related to your job. Are you having problems, or do you feel helpless in terms of improving your performance? Even if you are not aware of any given stress at this point, this dream offers a key warning that problems may come up sooner rather than later. In fact, your lack of concern in the dream may well indicate that problems will come from an unexpected source. Since you find yourself being extremely disturbed upon waking, you may want to keep an eye out for other job opportunities, as well as make sure that you understand everything that is going on around you.

I dreamed that I was with some friends and we were having a normal day and at the mall. All of a sudden I hear missles flying over our head. We all run to different houses asking if they are ok. I pick up my phone and text my mom to make sure she's ok. She replys I need help. I start panicking people come flying in with bombs and missles. I run to our moms house and the ground started to break. I grab my mom and tell her to get on the nearist boat and go. Then my dream ended. But having even the thought of losing my mom years me up.

Just had a horrendous dream where the world just ended.
The dream hasn't started the events if yesterday briefly I ate tea with ny children put them to bed and then started to feel unwell. About 10pm I throw up feeling very lathargic I get myself plenty if juice and take myself to bed. It's really hot tonight anyway. So I instantly fall asleep and wake up about an hour later sweating. I cool myself down and go back to sleep. My dream starts by me walking down a oath which is in the top if a hill. It's about mid afternoon and along this path 2 other blokes one in a tree trying to get a 20 note and the other laughing. A long this path I can also see a group of children on their bikes coming towards me about 8 of them, when across the sky all that is heard is a rumble through the sky it was way past the horizon then it was destroyed but nothing else happened. So I then started talking to this bloke and we left the other one in the tree. It started to get dark as the evening drew in as it does very quickly in dreams. It was clear at night and there were stars in the sky and the moon lit up the sky. I then saw another bright object whizzing across the sky. (No one had mobile phones because they had not been invented yet). That disappeared across the sky in a ball of light and that exploded however only a slight juddering was experienced. Along this path from behind us came the young lads on bikes they stopped and asked what those explosions were, I said I had no idea but it didn't look good I said to them they had better get home as it's dark. Just then the other bloke caught up with us having got the 20. Just as the kids were about to ride off. A hugely massive object/missile I dont know what it was went across the horizon and the explosion was huge right before all the ground started to tear up and within an instant something hit me and then it went black. I woke up, feeling really shook up but then instantly had to go and check my kids to see if it was a dream.

I have had another pint of juice but I needed to get this down.

I've just read above the meaning of it and the interpretation and that is amazing how accurate it is.

In my dream I was riding with my father and my cat in a small convertible car through a neighborhood. My door was loose so I opened it to close it better, so my dad slowed down. Then my cat darted out of the car from the open door really fast. I quickly jumped out of the car and scooped him up, and put him between us in the car. Then he ran out of the car again, but this time he went magically through the damn door and disappeared into a field of tall grass. At this point I was standing in the slowly moving car holding onto the top of the windshield frame. I became frustrated and exclaimed to my Father, "I just saw a cat go through a door! What the hell is going on here?!" Without saying a word, I felt him tug my sleeve down and point forward. I sat down and looked as a rolling black cloud became red and filled the sky to the horizon and rolled beyond us from behind. This new scary looking red sky full of red clouds seemed to lower itself towards the ground. We rode slowly onward, he not speaking and I unable to shut up. I saw a giant lifelike statue of a bull move slowly out of the clouds towards earth. It was about the dive of a large commercial airplane. It had a ring in its nose and it was moving or falling very deliberately nose first with its back to us. I only saw the top half of it. Then it started to rain on the windshield a watery reddish liquid. I assumed it was blood but it was mostly translucent with a light density like rain, but it left red stains like rust on my arms when I brushed it off with my hands. At this juncture, I decided that if this is the Apocalypse, I will no go quietly. From somewhere behind my back I pulled out a large samurai sword as I stood up in the car to meet the bullish beast. In one movement as I stood, I swung the sword like a lasso around my body, over my head and stepped into the swing with all my strength intending to remove its head from its body. Right before my sword hit him my vision went black, thunder cracked loudly, the sounds of a thousand dead souls crying out filled my head, and then I woke up. I woke up sitting in bed, no sheets, no clothes and my back ached because I guess I had been sitting with my back straight for a long time. I went to bed under the covers with a long T-shirt and boxers because its cold. When I awoke I was very warm and comfortable but the room was still cool like I keep it at night. Oh and my cat is fine. He was asleep at the foot of the bed like always. When I realized it was all a bad dream I still felt kinda angry like I wanted to kick someone's ass lol. I just relaxed and let it go.

hey I think this is God trying to communicate with you..ITS TIME TO REPENT AND GET READY!! I BELIEVE WHAT you were witnessing is in fact a part of the rapture..but what you must study is the book of revelation to further see my point...I suggest you try to save your Dad also. That dream was very clear and to the point. To repent is to say sorry make amends pray for forgiveness never return to those ways no backsliding. I think you should try to help others like your family friends even enemies. Forgive everyone and strive to live a better life. Accept the The Lord Jesus Christ and awaken from your everyday slumber if you haven't already. God is trying to communicate with you and through you. I clearly got the message did you???? Amen & Stay Blessed Brother

I just had a dream that everyone was looking at the sky and I went over to see what they were looking at and the whole sky was perfectly normal except for the part everyone was looking at.. there were horrible asperatus clouds and clouds that looked like they came from missiles or something... by this time im freaked out and then all the sudden theres a huge BOOM like a bomb went off and the ground starts shaking and everyone starts yelling and running into the nearest house. Im thinking "oh shit, this is the end of the world. I dont know where my parents are, I hope they're safe." And I start running into the house but before I open the door I woke up. It was absolutely the most craziest realistic dream I've ever had.

I just had this dream again and it always seems to be the same one all the time of course I'm always in different places but last night my husband and I were driving with our kids in the backseat and all of a sudden water just started flooding the entire streets to where we had to find some place high enough to get away but eventually the water was just about to reach us I called my family letting them know that we loved them. The water wasn't as bad where they were. I think I'm more terrified because of my children and they haven't lived there lives yet but what does this mean ? Can the world just one day be that way? Can it wipe out the entire city . I'm even terrified to drive out of town because of my dreams sometimes I get some where we run into tornadoes or a huge storm .

Scariest stuff I've ever experienced.

I just woke up from a dream in which I was standing outside a friends' house at night, looking up at the sky. I saw a small, bloodred planet with rings just like Saturn has. It looked really pretty but I also knew something was wrong because I had never seen this planet before.

As I was looking at other stars, I looked back to the red planet and it seemed to be closer. This went on for a little while (it felt like 10 minutes or so, so it didn't move fast) until the plabet was visible very closeby, let's say as if you were looking at a particularly big moon.

Here's where it gets weird. It suddenly "fell" towards the horizon and came back in its position from above, like it madr a full circle around the earth within seconds. Then it started "falling" again but this time without stopping. It started to spin around earth very, very fast as it also came closer and closer.

Suddenly the sky went completely black and I didn't see anything. I called out for my friend because she had to see this but she wasn't there anymore. Because it was so dark, I thought it was all over and that I could go back in but as I glanced at the sky once more, suddenly the planet lit up, being EXTREMELY close to earth, like a huuuge fire ball in the sky with a deep black edge.

I was so overwhelmed by it all that I simply knew this was the end. The planet didn't feel "evil" or anything, it just burned everything on earth with a big boom and a flash of light.

I woke up and realised that this particular dream felt so immensely real, like I could smell the atmosphere, I could feel the ambiance, I felt emotional, I felt the grass under my feet tickle and later burn, the texture of the planet and the heat of the flames all were so real!

I guess I wanted to share this here because I've never before experienced such a vivid dream.

I have had a reoccurring dream about how the world was going to end a month ago. Currently it's 04/06/16, my dreams started in about late Feb early March 2016.
Nothing really special happened in the dream like I wasn't really doing anything. But what I can remember was the end as though i were standing there watching.
The sky turns dark red,the sun has exploded,it's now a time for people to try an find shelter, there seems like there is ship, but I cannot make out what type.
It's starts to load people on it. No one specific, people do NOT seem panicked but rather understand that this was going to happen.
There seems like there is only hours left before the earth is obliterated by the sun burst,some people are dying from the extreme heat. Some are able to with stand.
Now we are down to mere minutes of the earth being destroyed, the sun is exploding more an more, so many solar flares.
Those that have been left behind for what ever reason are crying an holding their loved ones. Then all of sudden a big huge solar flare as though the sun has dropped from the sky and destroyed the earth. But why am I there? Am I in body or mind? Am I floating,alive?this scares me, but the dream lasts fot 5 to 6 hours but seems to last only minutes,

Why? What is the reason for this dream?
Is this going to happen soon?
Why fire? Why the sun? It seems as though everyone one wants to go to heaven, but they never want to go when it's their time.
I don't understand this dream or night terror, I'm not certain that any of us are meant to understand but rather be a so called prophet to witness how we see what's to come.
But solar flares?

I know,it sounds crazy,but it scares the crap out of me every time I wake from having this, because u cannot hide from solar flarez.

Thanks for reading. ..Wendy from marietta, ohio...

It's very crazy that you say that I feel the same way about it being an omen from God. I have had the dream with an exploding sun the sky being dark red, people finding shelter but there was tornadoes involved. I haven't had one about a ship though yet, but to be honest I'm taking this as a sign that Jesus is coming back and I think that you should to.

I've had similar dreams... I've had dreams where I've had to part ways with my family during a giant earthquake and I never saw them again. Also dreams that involved floods and everyone being swept away by floods of water but re-emerging in white robes. I too take my dreams as signs from God. I certainly believe that we are nearing the end.

I just had a dream where the earth literally broke off of its axis and was continually spinning faster and more erratically, throwing people and buildings off the planet into space. The only way for me to stop it was to sit in this room and constantly work a mechanism with my hands while using my feet to spin a model earth for the rest of my life. Like a modern day Atlas.

*Really long comment incoming, sorry!*

Just had a chain of 3 dreams (that I was too scared to go back to sleep again and continue) one after the other. Like everyone else, it was about the end of the world, but the dreams weren't so obvious about it. Everything happened slowly, and at times it seemed peaceful, but there was always this feeling of unease, and the dreams got progressively more devastating.

In the first one, I was at school (I'm a high-school student, currently) and everything seemed normal for the most part, except my friends and teachers were acting a bit weird. On my walk home, I look up at the sky, and it was a light gray, gentle raindrops falling from it. And I was like "Ok, whatever. I like weather like this anyway." Subtle enough dream, it ends when I get home. Nothing really happened, I just thought of it as a weird dream, definitely not apocalyptic.

Nothing really hinted at that dream being anything more, until I got to the second dream.

In it, I was on a tall highway (as tall as some skyscrapers, it seemed) and the sky was still the same light gray from the previous dream. Everything seemed a bit dewy, but the rain had stopped. However, when I look down from the edge of the highway (there were no cars), I can see the destruction that had happened below: buildings had collapsed, cars were destroyed, and for some reason there was no one around at all. Even the highway had been broken in half. That being said, I walk into a skyscraper from a window that was now accessible (since the building had been slanted so much) and am greeted by a group of four people; three whose appearance I cannot remember, as they were not all that important and barely spoke with me, and a boy with short white hair and wide, bright red eyes (he reminded me a bit of an albino rabbit). The three who I can't remember was two females and one male; one of the girls I think was the white-haired boy's mother and the other two his friends. Anyway, they let me into their makeshift shelter and his friends tell me we have to go find and collect these worm-like creatures to give to the boy for some reason. We spend some time talking and reluctantly collecting the gross insects and bring them back to the boy shortly after. He thanks us and his two friends go outside to talk, while his mother makes whatever food she can, and he and I are left to ourselves. I ask him what happened outside and he gives me a weird look, telling me there's no way I could have survived through that and forgotten. I tell him the last thing I remember was getting home from school, and he shrugs it off, saying I might've suffered brain cell damage from the radioactive gas outside (he doesn't mean it to offend me, but to explain my memory loss). He gives me a recap of what happened, saying that floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms, etc. ravaged through the world, destroying nuclear power plants and other facilities, killing nearly everyone indirectly at best. For some reason, I don't question my family's safety in the dream, and just go on to ask why he needs the worms as I see him cutting them in half and pouring green fluids that secrete from them into a few jars. I tell him I'm really grossed out by it, and he replies saying that he is as well, but that the green fluid actually helps heal injuries and treat (not cure) a virus that broke out during the beginning of the apocalypse and killed so many survivors. I then go on and ask "So what exactly are those things?" and the boy tells me they're creatures formed from the remains of human bodies that found themselves in highly radioactive areas. I nod and don't say anything after that and decide to just sit by the window and look outside; Asperatus clouds had formed. The boy and I glance at each other every so often, but soon I find myself staring at him—more specifically, the bandages around his neck and left arm. I want to ask what happened, but don't, and decide to assume it was an injury during all the destruction. Later on he tries to commit suicide by stabbing himself in the stomach, but I stop him, and find out that the wounds were actually from previous attempts.

That's where I wake up from that dream, and I find it a bit odd that it was a continuation of the first, and that it was indeed a dream about the end of the world, but go back to sleep thinking there was no way there could possibly be a third. Of course, I was wrong, and so begins my third dream.

This time, the dream is in third-person point of view for some reason, and the "camera" is focused on me. My eyes seemed kind of lifeless, almost as if I were already dead, and I was sitting down on my knees, focused on something in the distance. The camera, however, never turned in that direction so I never knew what. I was holding the almost-dead body of the white-haired boy in my arms, and the corpses of the other three were scattered nearby. The boy himself had a deep cut on his right wrist and a knife in his left hand, so it's safe to say he killed himself before something else got to him.

"You should kill yourself," he tells me. "Something much worse is coming."

I tell him I can't, because I'm Christian and we must not end our lives ourselves no matter what, and that I already know. Apparently the reason the boy had tried to kill himself previously was because he knew the world would end soon, but nobody would believe him even if he tried warning them. He gives me a weak smile and says, "Well, okay. Good luck with what's to come then. Maybe in the next life, we could be friends for longer."

I give him a small nod and he closes his eyes, leaving me completely alone now. The sky was pitch black and everything was silent, and the minute I look directly at "the camera," the dream ends.

Or rather, I thought it ended.

I wake up, under the effects of sleep paralysis like I nornally am, but once I stand up and look outside my window, I let out a scream. The sky was a light gray, and it was raining ever so slightly—Asperatus clouds had begun to form. My mom runs in and asks what's wrong, but I'm too shocked to say anything for a while. Once I come to my senses and am about to tell her the world will end soon, I actually wake up. And it's nighttime, there's no way the sky could be a light gray. My family is fine and everything is normal, but I still can't help but be unable to shake this feeling of unease.
