Generally rain symbolises emotions, release of feelings.

If the rain is gentle it is usually a relaxing experience and suggests a release from ideas and intellect. If it is a downpour and storm, it is feelings which may drench us, as in sadness or grief about a friend passing. If the land is inundated, then our common sense is lost to sight in the emotions released, and danger may threaten.

But rain may also show a return of feelings after a long spell of dry intellectualism or drought of feelings.

Some dreams show a massive downpour and feel that they have to wade through a flood, making it difficult to move; also it can be dangerous because visibility is poor. This suggests either emotions or natural events make it difficult for you get around as usual. A heavy falll of rain can also can be a start of very big changes in ones life and feelings.

If the rain is entering ones house it can signify worries about ones living conditions and comfort.

Rain can be a cleansing experience when it clears the ground and plant grow because they are watered. So it then represent a cleansing of worries or thoughts and emotions.

If a flood washes your house away or other things it may be that it is about a way of life, an attitude that has been destroyed or radically changed.

Idioms: Come rain or shine; it never rains but it pours; saving for a rainy day.

Good overview on “Rain” dream. I recently dreamed that while a steady rain was coming down outside, so was the case inside my house – rain was also steadily coming through the ceiling in my house. Very weird, have never had this kind of dream before – I guessing that this may be due to many anticipated life changes coming up.

    Keri – The rain entry is helpful, but with a dream you need to see how one image works with another – not all that easy. So you need to look up ceiling; and I think putting the two together that you are not too comfortable in the place you are in your life at the moment.

    But it doesn’t suggest anything desperate, but it does suggest you need to make a change and not wait for it.

I had a dream that there was heavy rain and I was attempting to run from it and make sure my Dad was safe. When I finally felt safe from the heavy rain and storms, I saw my Dad outside in a lawn chair in the pouring rain. I rushed to get him out but kept screaming for someone to help.

    Nichole – Dreams, our inner world and life, have a very different view than most peoples view of how to deal and meet life. You were intent of protecting your father from any discomfort or pain. But our inner life sees that would actually end up repressing or blocking many experiences that lead to survival.

    For example some years black I had the most awful migraines that put me in bed. But I didn’t rush to the doctors to give me pain killers. That would be like muffling the fire alarm. Instead I watched what I was doing or eating that led to the migraines. I saw that whenever I ate salty food a migraine followed. So I have never had another migraine, and so do not carry on misusing my body.

I dream of lots of rain that causes flooding. It seems to be a recurring dream as I remember it often. The rain is not gentle, soothing but more me in the flood water wading through. What can this mean and to dream it so often?

I often get large volumes of water like ocean in my dreams. I have been getting them for years and don’t know why.
