Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

(see Disasters)

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

If you dreamed of an avalanche, your unconscious is warning you that the foundations of your waking life are under threat. Or maybe you just feel snowed under by responsibilities, or overwhelmed by the avalanche of work your boss requires of you? If you dreamed of being caught in the middle of an avalanche, this suggests you are feeling overwhelmed by circumstances, but if you witnessed an avalanche, you are currently experiencing a destructive force in your life. The dream is urging you to assume control and take precautionary steps to protect yourself from danger. An avalanche dislodges snow and ice, so your dream may have expressed your fear of someone else’s hostility or emotional coldness, and the impact this has in the real world. Snow is white (the color of innocence), so you should also consider whether you are disguising some action in waking life.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Breaking loose of frozen emotions with a mighty jolt; opportunity to make changes before the freeze sets in again. Rejected parts of emotional self temporarily breaking free. See Disaster.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

To observe an avalanche in your dream predicts some rather formidable obstacles in your path; a change of plan would be advisable.

If you were buried in an avalanche, you will have a spectacular stroke of good luck; if you dreamed of others being buried, the forecast is of a change of surroundings.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

This may be either a good or bad dream.

It is propitious except when you dream of being smothered by it. Then you may expect a period of financial instability.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

This type of dream reflects contingencies that may arise along the way. The subject dreams of avalanches when she is afraid of a disaster or failure. Intuitively, you might have discovered a flaw in your planning that needs to be fixed.

It is advisable to try to identify the rest of images that appear in the dream to give them a sense within your fears.

If the avalanche is made of dirt or rock, it would be best to keep an eye on your finances. Conversely, if it is a snow avalanche it means that the relationship with your partner is at risk of being buried. A veritable storm of passion is on its way.

Some traditions say that this dream brings good luck, especially if you end up buried under the snow. It promises health and benefits. In the case it is other people who suffer the avalanche, it indicates a change in the environment.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

The material which makes up the avalanche is snow, and snow is frozen water. Water symbolizes your emotions, the unconscious, and, at times, life itself. Therefore, this dream is about rapidly and violently descending emotions and thoughts. Emotions which may have been repressed have finally been unlocked and may be overwhelming you. You may have this dream during emotionally turbulent times of your life, or in your dreams you may be remembering and reliving some difficult emotional experiences. Old dream interpretation books say that burial in an avalanche may result in good luck in the near future. Therefore, they think that it is a dream of the contrary.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

Dreaming of an avalanche signifies your raging emotions which have been held back for a long time.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

To watch in avalanche in a dream is to see obstacles coming and have no way to avoid those obstacles.

An avalanche is usually a warning, and can be avoided in real life if one is careful and changes a plan or a detail or two. Since an avalanche is very dramatic, it is likely that the dreamer will know exactly what the symbol represents, and other symbols within the dream will likely point to the best course of action. In a prophetic dream if you are buried under an avalanche oddly enough is considered a good sign and you will likely receive a spectacular stroke of good luck! If you dream of others being buried under this avalanche then a change of surrounding is likely to occur.

Encyclopedia of Dreams | Michael and Elizabeth Thiessen

Vision: Dreaming about an avalanche rushing down a mountain is a warning: you have set something negative in motion that is almost impossible to stop. Being buried by an avalanche: you are affected by an unhappy event.

Depth Psychology: The avalanche is always a warning about impending danger that can still be averted. See Glacier, Snow.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda

SNEEZING

Sneezing is the arrival of something unexpected, so this dream denotes that you will receive a surprise that will change your plans.

If you struggle to sneeze, the dream predicts a great disappointment; but if it is easy, good luck will come for sure. Seeing others sneezing provides tedious family visits.

Snow The snow covering the ground symbolizes the sublimation of the latter. Along with the sky, it forms a white and blue mystical axis. In general, the presence of snow in your dreams shows little enthusiasm and excessive rigidity. You should live more intensely and show more warmth toward loved ones. The snow is also related to the human longing for solitude or elevation. Do not forget that its whiteness, as well as being a symbol of life and death, is also associated with purification and transformation. This may represent a new beginning that lies ahead.

If the snow melts, can mean the dissolving your fears and problems in real life.

If you endure an avalanche, maybe you are overcome with the emotions that you have kept repressed for a long time.

If you dream that you are watching the snow fall, soon you will receive a letter. According to some beliefs, the letter will be from the person you will marry in the future. Many believe that this dream brings good luck.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

DANGER

Dreams about earthquakes, landslides and volcanoes all point to inner turmoil or emotional conflict that is shaking the foundation of the dreamer’s world. The dream may often come close to being a nightmare, but such dreams are warning you about something that is going on in your waking life to which you need to pay attention. A dream about a natural disaster is unlikely to be prophetic; it is more likely to be referring to something dangerous in your waking life. For example, an avalanche dream may refer to oppressive forces in waking life threatening to overwhelm you—an avalanche of responsibility, for example, that accompanies the birth of a new child.

If you are swept away in the dream, you are being urged to find something, or someone, to hold onto in waking life to regain stability.

If you dreamed that the earth was cracking open beneath you, this threat may be echoed in changes at work or insecurity within a relationship.

An explosion may reflect sudden changes in waking life or the release of emotion. What damage has the explosion inflicted in the dream? If anything was broken, interpret its symbolism; if someone was clinging on to you in the dream, who are they? If you dreamed you were in danger of thunder or lighting, again this may refer to emotional turmoil in waking life; but a dream about being struck by lighting could refer to sudden insight.

If you dream that you are falling into a dark hole, is there some situation in waking life out of which you feel you cannot climb?

Dreams featuring alarms may be caused by car or house alarms that go off in the night; if there is no external stimulus of this sort, and your dream features a house alarm, does this allude to your family? Does someone need protection at this time? Was the alarm effective in the dream? If the alarm failed to go off, this is an extremely significant symbol.

If your dream features a car alarm, this may allude to some kind of rash behavior and, as men often equate cars with sexuality, you may want to consider it in this context.

Dreams can also often warn of dangers of which we may be unaware in waking life. For example if you dream of overspending, this may suggest you are expending too much emotion on a particular person.

If you dream of escaping from a prison to a happy landscape, this may be a warning that you need to relax more. There are other practical warning dreams. For example, you may dream that your car brakes fail and in waking life find that this is indeed the case. There is usually a simple explanation as your unconscious mind may have registered the fault, but this kind of dream should not be ignored (see ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES). Similarly dreams of bodily aches and pains and other signs of poor health are also worth taking note of. See also SICKNESS AND HEALTH.... The Element Encyclopedia

DISASTERS

When nature pushes the elements to the extreme, the result is often explosive.

Volcanoes and lightning create fire, an unstable earth unleashes quakes and avalanches, water creates floods and drought, and air stirs hurricanes and typhoons into furious motion. Manmade disasters also create explosive and devastating results. People’s lives are tragically ended or irreparably damaged in seconds, panic and fear take over, and the best and worst of human nature is exposed. It is small wonder, then, that the unconscious often employs the symbols of catastrophe and disaster to provide striking and memorable dream images or messages.

Dreams of disaster, such as those involving earthquakes and plane crashes, can be extremely detailed, intense, colorful and vivid. You may wake up terrified and concerned for your safety, or for the safety of loved ones. To dream of any kind of disaster is always unsettling, but it is important to point out that such dreams are rarely prophetic or precognitive; it is much more likely that they are an expression of your hidden fears or anxieties concerning events you feel are beyond your control. A disaster dream may be expressing anxiety about what the future will bring, or highlighting the fact that you are trying to do too many things, or trying to please too many people, at the expense of your own peace of mind. On the other hand, disaster dreams can also reveal great inner change and growth, but this change and growth may make you feel temporarily uncertain of yourself, your direction in life and your position in the world.

Group disaster dreams can be particularly frightening and they may even recur, making it easier to assume that they might be warnings of actual events. Although there are rare exceptions, it is important to point out that vehicles and locations crowded with people who experience disaster are usually symbolic, reflecting our experience with a social influence or a reallife group. For example, if you dream of being in a bus crash that leaves you dazed and miles from home, you may be feeling increasingly disillusioned and detached from the goals of your place of work; your hopes of achieving satisfaction in that area of your life may in fact be already wrecked. Your dreaming mind may be telling you that you have gone as far as you can with that group of people, or course of action, and it is time to change your approach or lifestyle.

In some instances, dreams about disaster that involve surroundings or people you know may be a simple warning. For example, you may have forgotten that your car is due for a service, but your unconscious remembers and tries to draw your attention to this oversight in a dream in which you are driving your car and the brakes suddenly fail.

If you have lived through a natural or manmade disaster, your dream may also be recalling the horrific events in an attempt to help you come to terms with the trauma. According to Gestalt therapists, dreams that repeat a disturbing event or focus on disaster scenarios following an experience of physical or emotional trauma are reminding the dreamer that there is an emotional scar that needs attention and healing.

Finally, when trying to interpret any dream that involved a natural disaster, remember that if you live in an area that is prone to them your dream may simply be reflecting your anxiety about being caught up in such a catastrophe. The same applies to manmade disasters, such as terrorist attacks or train crashes. Your dream may be triggered by the climate of fear, and intense media coverage and speculation that now surround these tragic events. See also ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES; NIGHTMARES....

PRECOGNITIVE DISASTER DREAMS

The following precognitive disaster dreams certainly challenge our preconceptions and rational explanations about how the world and the dreaming mind relate to one another.

In his book Recollections of Abraham Lincoln, 1847-1865, Ward Hill Lamon relates a dream Lincoln had shortly before his death. In the dream, Lincoln heard a group of people mournfully weeping downstairs in the White House, but when he went to investigate, he found no mourners, although their desperate weeping continued. Upon entering the East Room he discovered a corpse wrapped in funeral vestments. Demanding of one of the soldiers stationed there, ‘Who is dead in the White House?,’ he received the reply, ‘The President. He was killed by an assassin.’ A day before the SS Titanic’s demise, a woman on the infamous ship dreamt of the horrible event that was to occur the next day. She told her husband, who scoffed at her worries and ignored her pleas. However, the dream so affected her that she secretly prepared herself the night before and had all her children sleep in their warm clothes in order to be ready at a moment’s notice. During the night, after the ship struck the iceberg, she and her children were rescued and escaped the sinking ship. Her husband, sadly, went down with more than 1,500 people.

In 1914, one hundred and twenty Newfoundland sealers were abandoned on an ice-floe in the North Atlantic during winter. The incompetence of the ship’s captain, and of other crew members, meant that the missing men were not noticed for two days and two nights. By the time they were rescued, more than half were dead. It was the worst disaster to strike the Newfoundland sealing community in many years. However, the disaster did not come without warning. One of the fiftyfive survivors later told of a dream he had two weeks before the disaster. According to Cassie Brown’s report on the disaster: ‘John Howlet had suffered a chilling nightmare weeks before. In his dream he was on a mountain of ice, lost and freezing. He was alone, terribly and frighteningly alone, but everywhere he wandered there were vague, indefinable “things” on the ice around him—things with no particular shape that he could make out. He found himself walking among those things, unable to find his way, wondering what they were and dreading them. In his dream he was counting, counting, counting…He was still counting the white mounds when he awoke, shivering and terribly depressed.’

Unfortunately, even this dream did not make him avoid joining the crew of the ship, Newfoundland, most of whom would be dead in a matter of days. It was only afterwards he realized that the bodies covered with snow were the white mounds from his dream.

In his autobiography, Jung recounts disturbing dreams and visions in 1913. In one vision he witnessed a monstrous flood covering Germany and realized a catastrophe was in progress. ‘I saw the mighty yellow waves, the floating rubble of civilization, and the drowned bodies of uncounted thousands. Then the whole sea turned to blood.’ Jung said he was perplexed and nauseated, assuming this vision was personal. It was not until World War I broke out a year later that he realized its collective nature. This irrational experience led Jung to conclude that each person’s unconscious possesses not only a personal, but also a collective, dimension.

Probably one of the best-established and most reputable cases of premonitions of disaster comes from the grim events that occurred on 21 October 1966 in Aberfan, Wales. On that day, 116 children and twenty-eight adults were killed when a large mountain of coal collapsed and buried a small section of the town of Aberfan, including an elementary school filled with children. The disaster touched nearly every family in the town and effectively extinguished an entire generation of children. After the disaster, the reports of premonitions began to flood in. The mother of one of the deceased students reported that her ten-year-old child (who died in the disaster) had a dream the night before which foretold the disaster. The child told her mother, ‘I dreamed I went to school and there was no school there.

Something black had come down all over it.’

The reports of precognitive dreams literally came from all over Wales and England. One lady had a nightmare that she suffocated in ‘deep blackness’. Another dreamed of a small child being buried by a large landslide. Another clearly saw a schoolhouse be buried by an avalanche of coal, and rescue workers digging frantically for survivors. Another woke up from a nightmare in which she was being buried alive. On the morning of the disaster, Mrs Sybil Brown woke from a dream in which she saw children being overcome by ‘a black, billowing mass’. Probably the clearest of the premonitions was reported by a man in north-west England who claimed that the night before the disaster he had a dream which consisted only of letters being spelled out in dazzling light: A-B-E-R-F-A-N. At the time, the dream had no meaning to him. Hours later, he would realize with horror what it meant.

An interesting phenomenon occurred in the aftermath of the terrorist plane attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon on 11 September 2001: numerous people came forward with reports of vivid dreams they’d had of these disasters in advance. The dreams were filled with images that later took place: planes crashing into buildings, planes crashing on the ground, tall buildings collapsing, flames shooting out of buildings, people running covered in gray ash, and feelings of panic, mass death and war. These nightmarish dreams were so realistic that many people awoke from them in terror and sweat.

The question most often raised about precognitive disaster dreams is, if so many people dreamed in advance of these disasters, why could nothing have been done to prevent them? The answer is that most people who have precognitive dreams only realize that they have had them after the events the dreams foretold have taken place, and they see how their dreams matched the events. Other dreamers, especially those who have periodic or frequent precognitive dreams, usually do not dream enough specific details to know exactly what is going to happen, where, and when. Some may only have a sense of dread that ‘something terrible’ is going to happen, usually soon. For example, a dream that a tall building is collapsing would not have sparked the immediate connection that terrorists were going to fly planes into the World Trade Center on the morning of 11 September 2001. A dream analyst would more likely interpret the image dream within the context of the dreamer’s life, suggesting that the dream reflected emotional turmoil within the dreamer’s life....

MOUNTAIN

Major obstacles and challenges within your life are represented by mountains in dreams.

If you appear on the top of the mountain, it means that you have conquered any obstacles or that you have reached goals that you have set for yourself. The style in which you are climbing the mountain will tell you how well you are dealing with problems, and any difficulties you may encounter on the way, such as falling rocks, avalanches or cut ropes, will all possess a significance.

Mountains are also a symbol for spiritual truth.

If you are climbing a mountain in your dream, it signifies that you are a determined and ambitious person. Falling off a mountain in your dream means that you are tempted to give up on things when the going gets tough. According to Freud, the image of a mountain in a dream represents female sexuality, because their profile resembles a woman’s breast. A dreamer feeling anxious about climbing a mountain in a dream may be expressing sexual anxiety and standing on top of a mountain can indicate feelings of domination. For Jung, the view from mountain tops symbolizes an overview of your progress and looking at a peak from below indicates the vast challenge offered by the process of self-discovery. Because hills and gentle slopes lack the challenge of steep rocky or icy mountains, in dreams hills indicate that the task of self-discovery may be easier than you think.

HOSTILITY

If you are hurling verbal abuse at someone in a dream, this may be urging you to put your energy to better use.

If someone is hurling abuse at you, consider if you are accusing yourself of something in waking life or if you have made someone angry.

If fury is expressed vocally in your dream, consider what is being said as it may contain a clue to your agitation.

If you use or see weapons in dreams, these are clear symbols of aggression and heated emotions. The type of weapon featuring in your dream should help you understand what it represents in your waking life.

If you know the person who is attacking you, then your dream may reflect genuine hostility between the two of you.

If you do not know the person, the dream may represent your lack of control over a situation in your waking life or feelings of insecurity.

Consider also if this person could have been your shadow. Ask yourself what it is about this person that you dislike. Because your unconscious sometimes projects characteristics or qualities that you dislike in yourself onto others, in your dreams your dreaming mind may be sending you a message that you should acknowledge this hidden aspect of yourself and come to terms with it.

If you are threatened or make a threat in your dream, were you accusing yourself of something? Have you made mistakes or been inconsiderate lately? Take a note of your attitude in the dream as it could tell you a lot about your attitude towards being intimidated in real life. Do you cringe in fear or stand up for yourself? If a physical fight or dispute features in your dream, this may be between different aspects of your character or two different arguments that you need to balance.

If there is a clear winner in your dream, you need to think about what message your dreaming mind is sending you about the correct course of action to take.

If explosions feature in your dreams, they may be symbols of your feelings of anger and hostility in waking life. On the other hand, the image may also be suggesting that you are bottling up your action and now is the time to express yourself before you lose control in your waking life.

If you were lighting a fuse that triggered an explosion or taking part in a demolition in your dream, you may want to destroy an aspect of your life. This may refer to a situation you are finding difficult to resolve or negative aspects of your character that you would like to replace with positive qualities. Images of a bursting dam, an erupting volcano or an avalanche of snow or rocks may also warn of emotional explosions overwhelming your self-control; they are all a sign that you should express how you feel. More positively, such dreams may point to a release of creative energy. Hidden anger towards someone can also be revealed by sudden discharges of gas or flames from a container—a bottle, box or container in dreams often represent feelings that are bottled up. Other hatefilled images such as acid thrown in someone’s face, a decapitated loved one or throwing rotten eggs at someone can reveal that you urgently need to deal with your pent-up rage.

WEATHER

The weather in your dream often symbolizes your mood or state of mind.

According to ancient dream-lore, dreaming of fine weather foretells happy events and dreaming of bad weather indicates future misfortune. Although dreams in which weather features strongly may be presenting you with a forecast of sunny or stormy times ahead, modern dream analysts tend to follow the Jungian interpretation; this suggests that weather dreams often reflect the emotional climate in your waking life. Whether your dream featured sunshine, snow, rain or a gentle breeze, it is likely that the symbolism of the weather mirrored your current emotions or thought processes in waking life. Another interpretation focuses on the changeability and fickleness of weather, suggesting that your unconscious is forecasting your own change of mood in the real world.

The message of your dream is often highlighted if you felt extremes of temperature or if the weather was uncharacteristic in some way, such as snow falling in summer. Stormy skies may show arguments and anger, sunshine may show happiness and optimism, and snow may indicate that your emotions are frozen. Dreams of earthquakes, avalanches and other natural disasters suggest emotions that are so powerful and uncontrolled that they can have disastrous effects when unleashed on your waking world.
