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.

Example: I was walking past a large building site which had been excavated for foundations. Rain had filled the excavated pits and a large lake had formed. As I walked past I could see ancient primitive creatures rising out of the water. One of them, a large dinosaur, came toward me. I was scared and ran away. The dinosaur followed and started speaking to me. I couldn’t understand what it said. Don.

Example: I happened to rub or scratch my flesh and felt like bits of something on me. I looked and saw they were maggots. They had come off the blanket. I tried to brush them off, and it was like pieces of dirt or scum coming off the body, but I could not seem to get rid of all of them. Afterwards I saw my sexual feelings rise like a thermometer. This didn’t clear the maggots, but I felt impressed to rise thermometer right up to my head. I watched the liquid rise. Then it came out of my head like a fountain, raining down on my body. This fell upon the maggots, which fell off me. As they did so they became seeds that grew in the ground.

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

I dreamt that I was walking to my car in an open parking lot in the rain. It was normal rain, neither cold or warm, just rain. I was getting a little soaked from it, but I didn’t mind it. I actually like the rain, but I just needed to get to my car.

When I finally got to my car, I noticed a stranger with a bat or club in his hand meaning to harm me. So I got in as fast as I could and proceeded to try to run him over by backing up.

I’m at a slight loss as to what it all means!

Last night I dream that I was watching a rainstorm come toward the white building I was in. The building was a school/church like building with a commotion of familys, in excited and good spirits. But, I watched the sky through an open door, a little worried of the traveling storm and I felt the mist of the far away rain. I saw the sky black and purple with clouds, it was thunderous with lighting and quickly moving toward us. As it got closer, the rain was pouring not only downward, but shooting sideways, and gathered as if shooting canons of water. I knelt down to get a closer look at this phenomenon and a sideways gush of water shot right at me and punched my stomach with a blow. I got up and grabbed my stomach and realized all the water was in it, I can hear it and feel it. I can usually interpret my dreams very well, but I can’t figure this one out. There was more to my dream afterward, but I can’t get over all the water in my belly that made me feel so full.
