The other night I had a really bad dream. I saw the world around me being destroyed building by building. People I loved were dying, society was crumbling. Places that meant a lot to me and a part of community were being leveled in a cascading fashion. Really it was horrible. Seeing the massive destruction of physical things seemed to impact me in what should be a nightmare. People were trying to find shelter from the chaos that was impacting everyone.
Maybe its about what we are seeing in reality. Dreams aren’t always literal but more symbolic. Changes in the world globally and locally mean that things that are familiar are coming down for new things or nothing at all.
I also fear changes in family and relationships. Life is always moving forward, never standing still so I have to adapt and perhaps this dream is a reminder that change is something I don’t have any control over. Forces outside my control will have their way with the world.
Everyone has cataclysmic dreams at one time or another. How we react to it says something about how we are as an individual.
Sometimes dreams are just dreams but sometimes they are a prediction about the future.

SO—IS THERE A WAY HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE? MGOOD BASIC DISCUSSION.
I had a similar dream, fifty years ago. The dream was so vivid that even today, I wonder if it was a prophetic dream.
My goodness that sounds like an awful dream. Prophetic our of the present though I don’t know. There certainly are already a lot of awful things happening in the world.
I always felt that some nightmares/dreams are images of our worst fears and/or good memories…visions of thing we would like to see that is stored far back in our mind.
YIKES!!!!! Hoping your next nights have been better.
