Dream Interpretation Smoke / ashes / embers | Dream Meanings


Smoke, embers and ashes are associated with fire in dreams but they also have their own associations.

If clouds of black, choking smoke appear and there is no fire, what are you missing in waking life as there is no smoke without fire?

Smoke and smoking in dreams typically suggest a feeling of danger and if you are smoking, you are trying to control your anxiety. Smoke can also represent passion that has not yet flared into being. Contradictory interpretations are that smoke signifies cleansing and purification, as with incense, or contamination.

If you watched the glowing embers of a dying fire in your dream, this may suggest either that a passion is dying out, or a fondness for someone or something just won’t die out. It could also suggest that underneath your calm exterior you are smoldering with anger and resentment.

If you were raking over the ashes in your dream, upon which aspect of your past are you reflecting? Ashes in a dream often indicate penitence and sorrow, and the feeling that there is nothing more than can be, as the ashes or memories are all we have left. The important thing now is to learn from the experience. And bear in mind that your unconscious may also use the dream images of smoke, ember and ashes to warn you that you are at risk of physical or emotional burnout.

Ashes

(Coal; Fire; Fumes; Oven) In a dream, ashes represent unlawful money or they could mean burns. Ashes in a dream are also interpreted to mean money one will receive from someone in authority or directly from the government. Seeing ashes then mean difficulties or toiling for no benefit in the service of a person in authority. Ashes in a dream also mean vain talk, or a knowledge one cannot benefit from.

If one sees himself carrying a container filled with ashes in a dream, it means that he is engaged in falsehood, backbiting or in acquiring useless knowledge.

If one sees himself blowing air into cold ashes in a dream, it means that he will engage in futile undertaking. Ashes in a dream also denote sadness, sore-eyes or heedlessness.

Ashes

Something has come to an end, has been completely dissolved. Ashes often signify weakness, the loss of vitality, and act as a reminder to enjoy life and have fun. Symbol of the Phoenix, the Bird, who, after total self-condemnation, sets himself on Fire, only to be born again by rising from the ashes. In that sense, the ashes are a sign of rebirth, transformation and, in the last analysis, of Birth, and Death.

One feels burned out, with no interests (depression, as in Abyss and Murder). Insults, disappointments, Illness, and the Death of a loved one can create such dreams. Guilt, blame, and atonement for transgressions (Ash Wednesday, the mark on the forehead). Glowing ashes point to self-reflection and purification.

According to C. G. Jung, ashes were in the olden days seen as protection from demons, particularly against the ghosts of death. In addition, ashes are the product of cremation.

The physical shell must be completely destroyed before the soul can become free.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Ashes

The presence of ashes implies that there has recently been a fire of some sort. Fire represents change and transformation on an intense level. Therefore, ashes in a dream may mean that some sort of great change has recently taken place.

Cloud Of Smoke

(Adversities; Fight; Pollution) In a dream, seeing a cloud of heavy smoke over a town represents a calamity from God Almighty or a harsh punishment of a ruler. However, if one sees smoke coming out of his house in a dream, it means that he will be defamed, or that he will be struck by a severe illness, an injury or a fever that will result from his work or place of business. He will then recuperate from his illness, regain the upper hand and turn things around.

If the smoke is caused by a fire or rises to spread from under a cooking pot in a dream, it means joy after distress and prosperity after poverty.

If the smoke has no burning odor in the dream, it means an atrocity or an ugly experience which will be followed by exposure and defamation.

If one sees himself shaded under a cloud of smoke in a dream, it means that he will suffer from a high fever.

If one suffers from the heat of smoke in a dream, it means difficulties and distress. Ifone sees clouds of smoke gathering over the hills in a dream, it means that a great scare will befall the people of that locality.

If the smoke is not caused by a fire in the dream, it represents the stationing of an army though no war will take place. However, the impact of such fear will have its effects on everyone.

If the smoke causes harm to the people and affect their sights or limits their vision in the dream, it means injustice, depression, adversities, pain and suffering from a divine punishment for people’s sins. Smoke in a dream also means news from the direction it comes from.

Family Members

All people in a dream represent aspects of your own personality. This is also true of family members, although such dreams may also be reflecting your waking-life relationships as well. Your first relationships in life are with the individuals who make up your family of origin, and all the relationships you have for the rest of your life are reflections of these original dynamics. When interpreting a dream that involves a family member, consider the qualities of that person first and the relationship you have to the person second. Each person in your family lives inside you as an aspect of your personality based on these qualities. Parents relate more to a sense of personal authority. Siblings connect with different choices or behaviors in your waking life. When a family member appears in a dream, ask yourself what quality the person embodies that might be called for in some situation or circumstance in your waking life at the time of the dream....

In some cultures, beneficial power is attributed to smoke, since it supposedly possesses a magical quality to scare misfortune away from humans.

If in the dram you imagine this smoke as a white column, light and subtle, that rises up to the sky, it is a sign that you will be spiritually elevated. On the contrary, if the sensations it causes are unpleasant, this could point to a state of mental confusion. Not in vain, this impedes us from seeing clearly and consequently makes it difficult to solve problems that arise.

Smoke

Something is changing but is currently obscured or unclear. As the saying goes, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Since fire represents drastic change, smoke is an indication of the occurrence of transformation without necessarily having the ability to see the actual source of the shift. Smoke can cause asphyxiation by blocking the lungs from receiving oxygen, so dream smoke may indicate a suffocating life situation about which your unconscious is sending you an alarm.

A smoke screen is a mechanism for keeping something hidden.

It is a battle technique that was developed in World War One, associating it with danger and violence. It has entered our language as something that indicates a deliberate desire to obscure a person’s true intentions or create a diversion in order to perpetrate some act of betrayal.

If your dream smoke obstructs your sight in any way, you may want to consider what current difficulty in your life may be blocking your view of things as they really are. Ask yourself if you are focusing on what’s really important and not being distracted in some way.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
