End of the World Dream Symbol
Dreams about the end of the world can feel terrifying but are they omens of a grim future? It is possible to dream of forthcoming events, even the annihilation of the earth, but such prophecies throughout the history of humankind have a poor accuracy record.
Your dreams and dream symbols do reflect your personal world. To dream of the end of the world typically means that you fear or believe that something in your own private world is coming to an end.
Common End of the World Scenarios
Seeing the tool of destruction. You have a small window of opportunity to prevent the coming event.
Asteroid coming. The coming destruction of current projects is unstoppable as it is by cosmic/divine/heavenly design.
Airplanes, bombs falling. Other people are bringing about serious, destructive obstacles in your life.
Missiles streaking through the sky. Feeling that the coming destruction is unavoidable, feeling helpless to stop it even though the opposition is of human origin. Missiles can be a phallic symbol for a man or men.
Mushroom cloud of nuclear detonation. There has already been an explosion so the event cannot be avoided so there is hint of helplessness in this symbol. Also, it is the result of someone's rage.
Virus or disease causes mass genocide. Something contagious spreads and causes widespread death (to careers, etc.) Gossip can be symbolized by a virus. A bad attitude, lies can spread like a disease.
Earthquake causes mass destruction. People, projects, companies or careers are shaken to the ground. Unsteady foundation. There could be someone at fault.
Tsunami, hurricane coming.There will be tremendous emotional turmoil that will threaten your peace and current life situation.
Tornados. Things are spinning out of control. Confusing emotions.
Foreign armies taking over. Feeling overwhelmed by outside influences. Being outnumbered by opposition or opposing opinions.
War. If you dream about war, you'll have to fight for the life of your project before losing (end of the world). Expect conflict.
Only human left on earth after total human annihilation. Feeling as though you are left alone with no other human indicates that you feel abandoned by others after a failed venture.
Being with only one other person of the opposite sex or with a small group of humans. Feeling responsible for carrying on for the sake of others after failure. You'll have to repopulate the earth which is a symbol of hope and responsibility.
Fighting for survival after apocalyptic event. It will require enormous diligence to recover from a failed venture.
Fighting zombies after apocalyptic event. You might still be "fighting" for something not worth fighting for after a failed venture.
Common idioms and sayings
"It's not the end of the world…"
"The end of the world as we know it."
"The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."
"It will bring World War III."
"The war to end all wars."
"The war of the worlds."
What happens after the end?
When something ends, something else begins. The old world ends; a new world begins. The human spirit has no end. It cannot be annihilated. Only the physical outer workings of what we have built. Everything is cyclical.
If you dream about the end of the world, consider what in your waking life is coming to an end or could come to an end. Is this what you want? Is there anything you can do to prevent this from happening? Take your dream as a warning to switch course or prepare for a change.
If you experience an end to something, reflect upon what happened to learn any lessons that can help you in the future. Consider it an opportunity to start over.
