Although it might be possible to dream about a major weather disaster before it occurred, it is much more likely that you are dreaming about some kind of emotional turmoil occurring in your waking life. In fact, dreams of tornadoes are often symbolic of ongoing verbal arguments, fighting and emotional tension occurring in a relationship. A tornado is made up of wind moving very fast, just as air comes out of one’s mouth very fast during an argument. With this in mind, the next time one of these ‘tornado’ dreams occur, look at what has just taken place in your waking life. Have you just had an argument with someone? Has someone had an argument with you? Overall, the presence of tornadoes or hurricanes in dream land suggests that you are an extremely emotional person and that either you (or those around you) are prone to emotional outbursts.
Alternatively, you may feel as if you are being swept along by forces beyond your control—perhaps someone’s passion. A hurricane can also represent the power of your own passion, or passionate belief, which picks you up and carries you along.... The Element Encyclopedia
A kitchen in a dream means preparing food, or it could represent a servant, menial work, a cook, a greasy spoon restaurant, ruins, loss of status, spoils taken from others by force, or it could mean a craft, heat, lust, tampering with the elements, or meddling with people’s business.

1- For most people, the kitchen represents the ‘heart’ of the house.
It is the place from which we go out into the world and to which we return. In dreams, the kitchen can often represent the mother, or rather, the mothering function.
It is the place which is usually busiest and therefore the place where many relationships are cemented, and where many exchanges take place.
2- The kitchen is a place of creation, and usually of warmth and comfort. It has therefore come to represent the nurturing aspect of woman.
3- There are folk tales in most cultures to do with the kitchen, and spiritually it represents transformation and transmutation. This is much more to do with desired transformation, rather than one which is enforced.

As the nurturing center of a house, the kitchen represents the heart and hearth of the self.
It is where the family is fed and comes together in community.
It is the room where people tend to congregate during parties.
It is the symbolic realm of mother and the feminine principle as it is expressed by the family structure. Food is stored and prepared in the kitchen, so the symbolic food for your soul is located in the kitchen of your dreams. Consider how your dream may be informing you of how you are responding to your own spiritual cooking.
If your life experience of family, mother, and kitchen was different from the ideal in your dream, your personal focus must include your individual paradigm. For example, much of a family’s abusive interactions can occur in the kitchen, so such associations should be considered when interpreting a kitchen dream.
The activity in the dream will outline your current internal view around issues of nurturing, self-care, and healing. Any people who appear are key components in the process of exploration.
If they are known to you, use the character-aspect technique to integrate their qualities into your interpretation.
If there were people in the dream not known to you, consider whatever you can remember about them from the dream. Any dream that takes place primarily in a kitchen has the capacity to offer you an overview of the status of your heart center. Use it to examine whether you are experiencing healthy levels of self- nurturance or are in need of adjustments in this area.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
To see a kitchen in your dream signifies your need for emotional nourishment. The kitchen is the emotional heart of the home and when you are trying to sort through your feelings you may dream of it. Kitchens are also places of experimentation and magic where you can create new dishes out of existing ingredients. Did the kitchen encourage you to linger by offering rich food for thought or was it a barren room that had no temptations or stimuli on offer? Pay attention to the condition and layout of your dream kitchen.
If it is cramped and cluttered, you may have taken on too many emotional problems that belong to others.
If the kitchen is bare, your life may be lacking in emotional intimacy.
Kitchen imagery often reflects the need to work through your current problems by listening to your heart and recognizing what really matters to you in your waking life. Assume that all the people and elements present in your kitchen dreams are clues to help you develop your full potential.
If you dream of the scullery, this room—used for the storage of kitchen utensils and doing messy kitchen work—could be another symbol of your mind, the storehouse of your unconscious.... The Element Encyclopedia
If you dream that you are missing one of your five senses, it is a strong signal that you feel out of control in a real life situation. You may feel you don’t have the capability to handle a certain situation you’re in, or you may feel out of touch with reality in some way.
If you dream that one of your senses is heightened (extra strong), you will triumph in a difficult situation.... My Dream Interpretation
Male and female sexuality, as well as family life in general, are symbolized by the utensils and vessels used in cooking. The cooking fire or oven is traditionally the focus of the household and can symbolize the deepest center of your being; something burning in the kitchen should therefore alert you to problems in your family life.
If you are preparing a meal in your dream kitchen, this may suggest a quest for love and affection.
If you are frying food in your dream, there is the constant risk of getting burned; the smoke billowing around your kitchen may be warning you that a problem could get worse if you avoid it or don’t deal with it. Cinders or a grate in your dream kitchen can represent ruined hopes as well as the potential of projects yet to be born.
If you dream of a kettle, even though its spout it is a symbol of male sexuality, it suggests that someone can get hurt if passions are not handled carefully. On the other hand, it could also indicate your present mood: steamed up and about to explode. At the other extreme, the image of a broken kettle may mirror feelings of emptiness, as if all zest for life has gone.
If you are cooking with pots and pans, the association is with male or female sexuality, depending on whether the pot or the handle is featured.
When a cup is seen to represent female sexuality, drinking out of it is erotic wish-fulfillment.
If it is hurled across a room by a man, it may express fear of, or anger towards, female sexuality; if by a woman, the dream suggests that the dreamer is using sex as a weapon. For Jungians, the cup is a homely symbol of the abundance of life’s opportunities; it is also a symbol of self-realization in that it is an echo of the Holy Grail. A full or overflowing cup often symbolizes excitement and new opportunities, but an empty or smashed cup indicates the opposite.
Cutlery in dreams may suggest a desire for domestic security or the taming of aggression. Spoons may have a similar symbolism to cups, but they can also represent a desire to be spoonfed. A teaspoon may be telling you to take things in one step at a time. A silver spoon may refer to someone you envy. A colander or sieve may be seen as standing for the process of developing a new outlook on life and sifting out unhelpful attitudes and ideas. See also EVERYDAY THINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia

Psychological / emotional perspective: To the waking mind, sound is necessary – and is sometimes somewhat irritating. Sound can be a marker for the natural changes that occur in focus in the dream state and, therefore, becomes part of the dream scenario.
A particularly sharp sound – such as a desk bell pinging – would suggest sudden change, whereas an apparently long, drawn-out sound – such as a foghorn – would signify a slower process.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
If the sounds that you hear are loud, it is probably that your subconscious is trying to call your attention to a certain issue. The sound of a bugle, for example, represents a warning to be more combatant and alerted to the importance of problems. A whistle, on the other hand, indicates that someone has revealed your clandestine plans or that you are too obedient, like does who follow the calls of their masters. Hearing muted sounds or almost imperceptible voices suggests that you should lend yourself more to what your inner wisdom is telling you. However, sometimes dreams incorporate sounds from real life, like the sound of an alarm or traffic from the street.
According to those that believe in astral voyages, after the first experience one hears a loud and irritating click, mostly when the return to the physical body is too fast. With time and practice, this disappears.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Adream is the subjective experience of mental images, thoughts and sensations, as well as those sounds, voices or words heard during sleep.
According to Freud, there is no original speech or sound in dreams; sounds are derived from what is actually spoken or heard in waking life. Jungians, however, think that the sensation of hearing in dreams is a symbolic representation of an issue troubling you in your life. This is because sounds in dreams have a similar impact on us as they do in waking life. They carry information and can give rise to pleasure, fear, anger and so on, depending on the sound. Therefore if a sound features clearly in your dream, the important thing is first of all to define your feeling reaction to that sound. Ask yourself if the sound is a warning or whether it carries information? Is it a positive sign or does it make you feel anxious?
Sounds can sometimes have great power in dreams and if they cause something to happen, they suggest a use of positive will, a positive and confident expression of your desires that encourages results. Bear in mind, too, that sometimes your dream incorporates sounds such as an alarm clock or the traffic outside your bedroom, weaving them into the dream’s symbolism.

There may be destructive forces brewing in your consciousness that are emerging out of opposing energies. These weather phenomena are incredibly destructive and completely unpredictable in their movement.
The devastation that they leave in their wake is almost unfathomable, but there is also an element of creation present, as their symbolic meaning lies in their formation.
A tornado is the result of two air masses of very different temperatures colliding with each other. Under the right conditions, these two systems meet up with each other and each tries to force the other to submit to their direction of movement. As a result of this conflict, the two form a third energetic system that combines the force of both, creating a tornado. Resistance is at the essence of the interpretation of this image, so when a tornado appears in a dream, look for areas in your life where you may be in resistance. In addition, the chaotic nature of a tornado’s path makes this a perfect expression of waking-life chaos. This dream may be indicating an unconscious reaction to the unpredictable nature of how things are unfolding around you, especially in areas where you are facing direct opposition to your desires....
