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 have had a recurring dream two nights in a row now where I am trapped in a scary unfamiliar rundown house and it becomes inundated with something at various points throughout the dream. Like last night for example, it kept becoming full of crazy huge insects and spiders and then there would be less for a time, then they would come back. Tonight it was rain and storming that would keep coming and going and it was very frightening becase there was also this feeling of being trapped and there was a terrifying entity after me. The rain was remarkable in the dream becase it was coming through holes in the walls and dilapidated windows. Also, most of this took place in a bedroom and there was a girl with me who slept in the room (like a sister) but she felt more like a version of myself.

I want to know why you feel the need to attack ppl on your site. I was told by my mother that you sent her a very nasty message when you could have just answered her questions (which were very innocent and valid). Instead you degraded her and told her awful things. Yes some things were spot on but you missed details that easily explained a lot and made you seem rude and disrespectful

    Lee – Thank you for writing and telling me your feelings. As you didn’t give any indication of what dream was dealt with I cannot properly reply.

    But some dreams do point out difficult things in a person life. If it was myself who replied, I only try to say what my understanding of the dream points to. I have no wish to attack – but often our dreams do point out things that distress us.

    Please let me know what dream was dealt with.

    Dalbe – It means that your dead mother, who has much more information about the future, is trying to protect you from a difficult time emotionally. So stay under the umbrella with your mother.
