Are you dreaming of the world ending? It might seem scary, but an apocalypse in a dream is not as strange or unusual as it might seem. Many people dream of apocalyptic types of events in dreams when a sudden change or shift in their life is happening.
What Does it Mean to Dream of an Apocalypse?
If you are dreaming of the world coming to an end, don't panic! Most of the times these are not prophetic types of dreams that predict the future! For most of us, dreaming these things means that we are changing and are ready to face a new way of life.
Are You Currently Experiencing Any Stressful Events?
Apocalypse dreams are often triggered by real life events that are stressful. These types of events include things such as growing into adulthood, starting a new job, getting married, going through a divorce, or even saying goodbye to a loved one who has died.
Many times it may suggest a significant event that may transform your entire life is happening and everything at you know is coming to an end.
These events are known to be extremely stressful and so it makes sense that these emotions and feelings would become present in our dreams.
The emotions you feel during an apocalypse in your dream can often be manifestations of the emotions you feel in your present life right now. For example, you may feel anxious, frightened, alone, stressed out, and upset.
Fortunately, most of these changes while stressful are all a natural part of life. Being aware of your dreams and the meaning can help you take care of your own well being throughout these difficult moments in life.
Fear of the Unknown
Much of the emotions are created by our natural fear of the unknown and that we do not know what will happen next in our lives.
The mysteries of life can be frightening when you are not sure what is about to happen.
It's not unusual to have a dream about an apocalypse when you are not sure whether the outcome of this new transformation/change will be a positive or negative experience.
Many people also have these types of dreams when they are feeling unprepared for a situation. You might be afraid that something that is going to happen in the future will not go well.
For example, maybe you are supposed to do a presentation in front of a large group. If you're not comfortable with public speaking or you are afraid you will not do a good job on the presentation, it is likely you will have these types of world ending kind of dreams.
