Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook TORNADOS : Many of the dreams in our studies have featured tornadoes. Since dreams are in the here and now we can start to gain an insight into what they mean. Several dreams took place during times of extreme stress. Some took place when the dreamer was thinking about someone who can cause havoc so the tornado could easily be a symbol for that person (who acted in a tornado like way).

- What issue yesterday sent your mind into a spin?
- Have you been very stressed recently?

- Are there many changes in your life right now?

KEY WORDS : Uncertain, arguments, havoc, stress, unforeseen,changes, weather forecast(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind. Then see if any of these words could appear in those quotes)

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of the tornadoes in dreams?

Tornadoes may symbolise your own uncertainties about the future. That can be linked to major changes taking place in your life. E.g.

"I feel really insecure as my father has just died. What is going to happen"[Dream Dictionary - Tornado dream][Dream Dictionary - this quote is based on a real dream interpretation which is featured at the end of this article]

"I am leaving home to be on my own. I feel insecure about everything though and do not want to end up back home"[Dream Dictionary - five tornadoes dream]

"My parents are getting a divorce. I am unsure what life will be like afterwards."[Dream Dictionary - tornado forming]

"I have had a really bad year and the tornado portrays my own emotional state."[Dream Dictionary - tornadoes]

Tornadoes may link to change in a general sense. It maybe that lots of things have been happening and you are in a process of adjustment. E.g.

"I have had some changes in my life right now. They are quite major and I am just adjusting"[Dream Dictionary - Tornado dream

Tornadoes can link to feelings of stress. The tornado will capture the inability to relax. E.g.

"my head is spinning round at the moment. I am under a lot of stress"[Dream symbol - heard sirens for a tornado warning dream]

"I have been getting a lot of tornado dreams recently. My head has been messed up and I have been showing real tantrums. The dreams went away later when I started sorting my head out"[Dream Dictionary - tornado dreams]

"I suffer from depression and can tend to get into tantrums when I drink"[Dream symbol - Tornado warning dream]

Tornadoes can link to moments when you cannot think clearly. You maybe bombarded by facts or suggestions. E.g.

"I am living in a religious cult. I want to leave but not without my husband. I am trying to reduce the impact they have on me right now."[Dream symbol - Ants spin around like tornado dream]

Tornadoes may link to something that is unavoidable and has caused a great deal of damage in your life. In short this may refer to some kind of natural disaster in your own life. E.g.

"my boyfriend is moving to another state. I want to keep things moving but at the moment its just a disaster"[Dream Dictionary - talking to the dead of hurricane Katrina dream]

Tornadoes may be a sign that there is trouble to come. You maybe detecting some warning signs in yourself or in situations around you. E.g.

"I woke up after this dream and went to work. Yet I was still ill and should have stayed at home"[Dream Dictionary - Tornado warnings dream]

"I am trying to take a relaxed attitude towards something that is about to blow up. If problems occur then its pointless worrying about it"[Dream symbol - tornado dream]

"My relationship with my boyfriend is at a critical point. It is likely that we will break up soon. I am not sure what he is going to say"[Dream symbol - tornado dream]

Tornadoes can represent people who cause havoc. E.g.

"My two children are a real handful. I am dreading looking after them during the fifteen hour journey home."[Dream Dictionary - two tornadoes dream]

Tornadoes can represent arguments that have either just happened or are about to happen. E.g.

"My sister wants to get rid of her unwanted house guess. I could not offer her any good advice. It will not be easy. "[Dream Dictionary - tornadoes dream]

"We just constantly seem to argue. They are such petty arguments. "[Dream Dictionary - 4 tornadoes dream]

Of course tornadoes and hurricanes do happen and the dreams may actually be about tornadoes and forecasts of them and the effects of them. E.g.

"I watched the coverage last night of Hurricane Katrina and it was terrible. The people seem so ordinary who you can identify with. That could have been me - it was so scarey"[Dream Dictionary - Hurricane Katrina dream]
DREAM TIP : Dreams often will link to day to day events. Think about what tornadoes represent and see how that applies to your daily life. They obviously link with disorder and chaos. Did something chaotic and stressful happen on the day before the dream? Are you worried about the future in general? Have you had a lot of change in general? Do you fear trouble ahead?
THE DREAM I had a dream that I was at my house and there was a really bad storm outside, I looked out of my window and I saw a tornado down the road. In our house, we have a storage thing under are stairs, and I was frantically trying to get al the coats and stuff out of there but it was taking ages, I looked out of my window again, and the tornado was getting closer. So I ran back to finish clearing under the stairs,and was calling my animals and my brothers (who don't even live with us) and the rest of the family to get under the stairs. Then we were all sitting in this tiny little thing under the stairs. The thing is the dream felt so real, I woke up in a panic!!!

THE REALITY The dreamers father had just died. She was feeling rather unsettled.

DREAM ANALYSIS Tornadoes can capture your worries about the future. In this case the dream came shortly after her father had died so she was extremely unsettled about the future. The dream captures a sense of imminent danger and worries that something bad is going to happen. To lose a parent can make you feel very insecure about the future.
