If you want to decode your dream about tornadoes, then we are here to help you.
The General Meaning of A Tornado Dream
What is a tornado? It is a powerful build-up of winds that wreaks havoc. A tornado is capable of pulling everything inside it and shredding it into pieces.
Similarly, it symbolizes the uprising of destructive emotions, like anger or rage. These kinds of dreams appear when someone or something has invoked these feelings within you. As a result? You might be on a path of destruction.
If it’s not emotional, then it is about a particular scenario of your life. Tornadoes can not be controlled. Perhaps, you’re in a situation you have no control over?
As tornadoes are about ‘build up,’ dreaming about a tornado can symbolize your increasing stress levels. Your stress level can be increased when you are trying to avoid all the feelings.
It can also signify an end of one chapter in your life and the start of a new one, especially when you are trying to forget the old and want something new in your life.
1. An Unstoppable Change
Tornadoes can’t be prevented or stopped in the real world. Thus, tornadoes in your dream can indicate that you are unable to do something about a specific condition.
No one can deny that tornadoes are a destructive force, and they can destroy everything in their path.
A tornado may also symbolize an unexpected, unforeseen and immediate change in your life. If you’ve been through a change that has jumbled up your life or stirred disorientation, the dream symbolized that.
When you survive a catastrophic tornado after being chased by it, then it has a positive meaning. It means that you will be overcoming a bad circumstance. Moreover, it’s an indication of your optimistic view of a situation.
This type of dream is a sign that you are going to start a new part of your life. Thus, you must be happy to have a dream like this.
It also signifies that whatever the problems you are facing are only temporary. Gradually you will emerge as a wiser, better and stronger person.
2. An Emotional Roller Coaster
A tornado dream can be an indication of some serious emotional sufferings in your life. These disturbances can be caused by your own behaviors, actions and attitude or even by any external forces.
A tornado in your dream can also denote the emotional drama that is going on in your life. Like havoc of spiraling winds, you are finding yourself torn.
The Bible says that a tornado dream is related to an internal “emotional storm.” Maybe you are holding anger and other negative emotions inside you.
“Holding your anger inside is like drinking poison and waiting for someone else to die from that poison.” Thus, you must get rid of this bad habit, which is silently killing you inside.
The hardships that you are going through in your real-life can also cause you to dream about a tornado. Are you feeling depressed, frustrated, or scared because of your relationship with someone?
3. Harbinger Of Heartbreak
If you are caught in a tornado in your dream, that means there are some emotions you can’t control. These can be caused by a bad relationship that you don’t want to be a part of anymore.
Unfortunately, tornado dreams can signify a fall out with someone you love. It does not have to be a lover or significant other, necessarily. Anyone from friends, family, children, and workplace can be this person.
In simple words, it can be a person of importance to you, or you are of importance to this person. The things that matter to you are the people who can understand your feelings.
In other words, you might be in for shocking news. Because if you are a part of any kind of toxic relationship, the tornado is a sign that it will either end the relationship, or you’re going to be in a wreck.
So, you have to be wise and take the right actions with proper guidance. If there is someone you love and don’t want to lose? It’s time to pay attention to them and put effort into reinforcing your relationship.
4. The Internal Conflict
As we’ve talked about, Tornado is often about a negative build-up. You might have suppressed your anger, sadness or emotions for way too long. These bottled up feelings are ready to explode like a tornado and destroy everything. That’s bad news, right?
So, you need to find a healthier output for these emotions and to release stress. It does not mean to explode on someone or rage out. We are suggesting a healthier output, like exercising, or going for a run, cooking or something that makes you feel relaxed.
The Bible also interprets the tornado as manifestation or punishment from God. So, we advise you to make peace with the Lord. If you’re committed sins, it’s time to confess and do penance.
Let’s Dive Deeper Into Your Dream
Now that you’ve understood what the tornado can mean in different ways let’s talk about how and what you dreamt of.
Let’s decode what happened in your dream and see what the dream was trying to tell you:
When You Are Simply Watching A Tornado
You may witness a tornado right in front of you in your dream. This may signify that your plans for life are not working properly as you wanted. The tornado is standing there as a warning to work on your life better.
Maybe you are watching a tornado from a safe distance. It indicates your ambition and risks regarding something you want to work on. Perhaps it is telling you to take the leap of faith and use your ambition to work on something you’re afraid to.
Moreover, it’s a symbol of someone who is trying to challenge your sense of stability and security. Are there people wearing you down? Whenever you talk about your ambition or goals, they simply don’t listen and find a way to make you feel down?
It’s time to leave them and take this leap. Consecutively, are you running away from the tornado? It can mean that you now have the ability to express your feelings about the people that are causing disturbances in your life.
When You Are Chasing A Tornado
If you are chasing a tornado in the dream, then it can mean that you’re ready to face the challenges. Any emotional rollercoaster, heartbreak or conflict that you have? You’re ready for it.
Perhaps there is someone trying to establish authority or superiority over you, and you’re ready to tackle them. Not physically, but through your actions and decisions.
It can also mean that there is an opportunity waiting for you, and you are ready to jump at it to take it. There might be some risk, but you’re willing to see where it leads you.
While chasing a tornado is fine, if you are ‘closing in’ or ‘approaching’ the tornado, it is a red card. It means that you’re about to face a problem or challenge soon.
You see, you have to understand that chasing a tornado and not being able to catch it is great. However, if you are able to catch it, then that’s bad news.
Hiding From A Tornado
If you are hiding from a tornado in your dream, then it is about your ability. This means you have a remarkable ability to keep calm in every situation.
Moreover, you are always able to find a solution to your problems even when you are distracted. Even the power of an alarming situation like a tornado is incapable of shaking you, and you’re a rooted person.
To be in a house while watching the tornado can indicate that someone in your daily life is challenging your security. This person can be a family member or your boss at work.
Regardless of the situation, keep up your composure. Do not lose it and stay adamant, and you may reap great benefits.
Watching More Than One Tornado In A Dream
Have you ever seen more than one tornado at the same time in your dream? Because, according to the trusted insight of our dream psychologist, seeing more than one tornado at the same time in a dream is rare.
However, this kind of dream may symbolize that you are surrounded by dominant and aggressive people.
It can also symbolize that you might have or potentially end up with a bad relationship with someone close. These people can be your business partner, your new boss or the person you’ve just started dating.
Thus, you must identify those people and try to find a way to get rid of them from your life. Eventually, you will stop dreaming about these tornadoes.
This type of dream can also signify major changes in your life that are going to occur very soon.
Tornado Is Lifting You Up
In most cases, it happens in a tornado dream that you are being lifted off the ground by the tornado. It signifies that you have started to feel passionate about another person, almost like being swept off your feet.
However, if you feel like the tornado is ripping you or hurting you, then this ‘passion’ might be unhealthy. You also have to recall the way levitating in the air made you feel.
If you felt a little afraid, then you might have a fear of commitment. Similarly, if you felt excited, then you might turn impulsive and rush into a relationship. Take a deep breath and take it at a steady pace.
But you can smile, it is good news, after all.
When The Tornado Is Destroying Your House
Maybe you had a dream in which the tornado was destroying your house. That means you are trying harder for improvements in life.
It can also signify that you have finally decided to liberate yourself from the exhaustive or draining burden of one. Additionally, it might mean that you will get growth in the form of a residence.
For instance, shifting to a bigger and better apartment. That’s right; if a tornado has destroyed your building or any building in the dream, it symbolizes prosperity. You will have a better future.
Perhaps you are switching careers towards the one that truly gives you a feeling of purpose. Like liberating yourself from the exhaustive or draining burden of one.
Being In The Center Of A Tornado
Did you find yourself in the center of a tornado while dreaming? It suggests that you are going through some hard times in real life.
These hard times might be limiting you, restricting you or making you feel trapped. It might be feeling impossible for you to escape. However, the solution is also in the dream.
The dream also means that you are going to win the fight with your inner demons if you continuously follow the right path. How? By walking into the winds.
That’s right, as we’ve stated before, it can potentially liberate you, and you may fly. It is time for you to face your fears and break free from the tornado that has imprisoned you.
If you are experiencing new challenges in your life, then having a tornado dream is common. So, you can be prepared for the challenges you’re going to face.
When You See Moving Items In The Sky Due To A Tornado
If you see moving objects in the sky due to a tornado, then the dream means you are going to hurt innocent people. Maybe you are short-tempered, and you will do it unintentionally.
Now, this is where it will get difficult for you. Was there a specific type of object you saw? If so, does anyone you know have that kind of object? Perhaps that object reminds you of a certain person? It means that you are going to hurt that person.
However, when you see a flying house in your dream due to a tornado, then it’s actually good news! It means that you are learning to control yourself!
You might even see a car moving in the sky because of a tornado. It signifies a hidden agenda for which you are unable to move forward in your life.
