Lightning / Storm / Thunder

Hearing thunder in a dream can warn of a potential emotional outburst. If the thunder is in the distance, there may still be time to regain control of a difficult situation. Spiritually, the rumblings of thunder can demonstrate deep anger. Because lightning has long been considered the prerogative of the gods and a symbol of communication between the world of gods and that of human beings, if lightning appears in your dream or you are struck by a thunderbolt, this suggests intuition, inspiration and the sudden awakening of psychic powers. In general, lightning in a dream indicates unexpected changes that are taking place, or are about to take place. These changes may be to your routine or to the way you think. Lightning can also indicate strong, passionate love that can strike suddenly and unexpectedly. Alternatively, lightning in a dream can indicate a discharge of tension, or a necessary but destructive act on your part in order to make progress. Spiritually, lightning can denote sudden enlightenment or personal growth. If a storm—with or without thunder and lightning—appears in your dream, this indicates personal emotional outbursts as the storm allows the dreamer to release emotion and clear the air. But if the storm is approaching, this indicates a sense of difficult times ahead, and of anger or passion about someone or something that has built up, but which has not yet been expressed. ... lightning / storm / thunder dream meaning

Sand represents tiny ideas in consciousness and a sandstorm is the negative consequence of too many chaotic thoughts. Wind is also a symbol that relates to the intellect, and when these two get together in an out-of-balance fashion, you may feel trapped and unable to move with any clarity. A sandstorm combines the power of wind and the structure of small bits of earth. The wind is symbolic of what happens when thoughts are powerfully directed. Sand in this case represents tiny little ideas that taken by themselves have little meaning, but when they are whipped up in a frenzy of directed thought, they can become blinding and destructive. ... sandstorm dream meaning

Dream Symbols and Analysis

Storm / Thunder / Lightning

Storms suggest emotional eruptions but, because storms often blow out over the course of a dream, they also suggest that your emotional crisis will eventually calm down. A dream storm may also represent a brainstorm or the unleashing of creativity, especially if bolts of lightning figured. The flashes of lightning could represent flashes of insight but they could also be associated with anger issuing from an authority figure (bolts of lightning were associated with the wrath of the gods, according to ancient peoples). An object or person appearing in a dream that features thunder may therefore represent someone you are planning to oppose in waking life or may suggest an aspect of yourself with which you feel uncomfortable. If the latter is the case, the thunder may be the voice of your own conscience or an authority figure such as a parent or teacher or boss at work. Try to work out what the thunder was saying; it is a strong image and the advice may be equally impressive. Finally, were you personally involved during the storm or did you fear for the safety of someone else? If you were worried about someone else, it may be that you fear the consequences of your actions on other people. And if your house or any other building was under threat from the storm, you should consider the dream from the point of view of that which was under threat. ... storm / thunder / lightning dream meaning
