It’s always good to note about 99% of the time dreams are symbolic rather than literal although there are certain cases of precognitive dreams where it could be said otherwise. More or less dreams are VERY symbolic as our world is also build from symbols and archetypes.
Dreaming of the Apocalypse usually means a “mini apocalypse” is going to take place in your life, it signifies DRAMATIC change. If we think about when we awaken, it could be a symbol of an earthquake hitting your reality because your reality is completely ripped apart and the ground beneath your feet begins to shake as the illusions start tumbling down. these natural forces taking place are merely a projection of how the collective consciousness is encountering their own silence earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, and being slapped in the face with hard truth.
It also is about the Root Chakra, Survivalism, feeling secure, our connection to the earth, our unconscious and adrenal activity.
Dreams are merely messengers of symbols, shaking things up within our subconscious mind. It doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going to enter world war III and the four horses of the apocalypse are coming to town…It means YOUR WORLD is changing from the inside out.
This change could be emotional, physical, spiritual, or mental but it’s coming through in your reality. In your dream it also showed you come out from this change, reborn and revitalized. You save yourself within your dream, so whatever this ‘change’ may be you are still going to come out on top from these circumstances.
It also represents transformation. Transformation like the pupae who transformed into a caterpillar, then into a chrysalis breaking free into a butterfly. In one of the books i’m reading the author mentions, think of yourself “transforming from the stages of crawling into learning to fly!”
The fact that these dreams are happening a lot signaling deja vu patterns is merely showing you that great changes are or going to happen in your life.
Hope this helps!
