Lightning Dream Meaning

Lightning flashes purple in the distance.

Similar Dreams: Storm, Fire, X-Ray

A lightning bolt in a dream or a flash of lightning or an experience with lightning in a dream is a wake-up call with a warning.

Just like it is that something is about to come down in your waking world, so too is the symbol in your dream world.

In Tarot, The Tower card most closely resembles the significance of lightning in your dream and even depicts the symbol of lightning on the card in some decks.

This symbol in your dream is a warning of sorts that a storm is brewing. The storm is an environmental concern, meaning it is not something that you can control in terms of whether or not it is going to happen. This is an external event that will cause some problems for a little while, but, like every storm, will eventually pass.

Dreaming About Being Struck By Lightning

If you dream you are struck by lightning this indicates that you are about to experience a sudden insight into your life. It may be shocking and unexpected but it is something that will shake up your whole world.

They say that lightning never strikes twice - but in dreams, anything is possible! If you are struck by lightning more than once in your dream, it indicates that you are going to have more than one big realization and it is important to mentally and emotionally prepare yourself.

This dream can also indicate a powerful spiritual awakening. Lightning is associated with the power of the gods from ancient times and if you are struck by lightning it could indicate an awakening of psychic gifts.

Dreaming About Lightning Bolts Around You

If you dream that there are lightning bolts falling around you from the sky then this is an indication that you are picking up on something on a collective or global scale and huge change is coming.

This change may be dramatic and shocking but this is an indication that your subconscious is connecting to the collective unconscious.

This dream can also signify your own intuitive or psychic gifts and indicates that you may start experiencing them at a deeper level and be able to apply them to your waking life.
