Dream 405: Fire and Fury of the Spirit

A man had the following dream:

“I had another one where a large tornado was in front of me, but this was an unusual tornado, because it had lightning inside of it and a large glowing orb on top of it. Which was where the lightning was coming from. It seemed like a quick dream, but it was the only one I could remember from that night.”

Interpretation

Tornadoes are a powerful natural force which like sex/relationships can sweep you off your feet and dramatically change your life. Lightning is a powerful natural force that implies instant electric change (lightning being electrified fire if you will). Circles are associated with the soul because they have no beginning and no end.

Orbs are circular light and there is a kind of spirituality or awe associated with them as in “I see the light.” This dream is either recognizing or predicting instant natural change from natural forces or relationships that disrupts your homeostasis and gives you a sense of almost spiritual awe.

Torrent of Anger

images(5)Dream 253: Changing the Torrent of Anger

A 34-year-old man dreamt of a tornado over the ocean creating a funnel of water. He was viewing the scene through his omniscient observer-ego. Suddenly two helicopters appeared. One was well above the top of the funnel while the other helicopter was well below the top of the funnel. Each of them fired a missile at the base of the funnel which destroyed it and removed its destructive potential.

Interpretation– He returned from Afghanistan with severe post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He was losing his temper with his family and their children so often that they felt like they “were walking on eggshells.” In dreams, water is emotions and a tornado is a powerful and potentially destructive natural force which in this case is anger. Fire in dreams is change or transformation. Missiles explode and create fire, i.e. change.

Changes in elevation in dreams often represent different levels of consciousness. Lower levels address practical and everyday needs while higher levels typically address higher or even spiritual aspirations especially when flight is involved. Helicopters are strongly identified with the military.

Helicopters are a type of flight that is methodical, strategic and calculating. The dream indicated that he had totally changed. He had methodically trained himself to eliminate uncontrolled natural forces, i.e., anger, from family interactions. The dream was recognizing his radical changes on both higher and lower levels of consciousness.

Snakes and Tornadoes

images(27)-717928842Dream 238:

A 38-year-old alcoholic man dreamt of a large tornado approaching a field that was full of snakes. The tornado was coming towards him. He was at the farm of some very supportive grandparents.

As it got closer to him he noticed that he had snakes inside of himself because he reached inside his mouth and pulled out snake after snake. Eventually he pulled out a line of very small scorpions that he killed as each one came out.

Interpretation
A tornado represents a massive confusion and chaos in one’s life. It is a powerful natural force that can change your life. Snakes represent change and transformation because they are one of the few animals that completely sheds its skin.

That the tornado was coming towards his supportive grandparents farm indicated that there was chaos and confusion in his life that threatened to completely disrupt his support. Pulling the snakes out of his mouth indicated that he needed to change what he put into his mouth. The dream is referring to drinking since we consume alcohol by mouth.

He was a very cynical man who let out short offensive comments. The dream literally was saying that he had to kill the little things coming out of his mouth. The little comments he made were like scorpions which are aggressive creatures.
