Not sure when it all started, I'm guessing maybe after high school sometime (so for around 5-6 years)...

For some reason, I dream of tornadoes ALL the time. I mean, ALL the time. There's nothing I see more in my dreams. I wouldn't really call them nightmares, it's not like they keep me from sleeping or anything, but they are becoming somewhat of a nuisance. Especially the past two days...

To let you know, it's not like 1 harmless tornadoes. Yesterday, I dreamed no less than 20 tornadoes; I was usually able to see almost 4-6 at a time. Some thin, some massive. I thought that was alot. Then tonight I wake up and dream about even more than that.

In yesterday's dream, I was in my home. Like usual, I'm having some 'normal' dream. Family is around, we're doing something. Then it's like all of the sudden, the sky outside greys out, and my mom comes in and warns us. I go outside the front door, and look out towards the ocean (about 3 streets away), and up in the sky I can see about 5 tornadoes moving almost in single file, as if following the coast, but while over the ocean. Basically they're water spouts, and I wonder if they'll move on shore. I keep watching them, tornado after tornado, probably around 10 or so. Then it's not so bad, because they've got a pretty stationary movement, they're following the coast but over the ocean. Then for some reason I look out to towards the other direction, and see another massive black tornado (this one over land, sort of opposite the ocean tornadoes). It's got a stranger movement, and I'm not sure if it will hit us or not. This is where it gets a little strange, and I'll admit this is unusual since most of my dreams involve REAL tornadoes, not whimsical little fantasy things. But I literally watched as a 'mini tornado,' about the size of a beach ball, came inside my front door. All I could think was to hit it back out, which worked. Then two more of these tornado's came in (they were clear, see-thru), and these I grabbed and basically threw out the door and slammed it shut. Fast foward some, and I'm holding onto the front door handle with both hands, basically pulling it inward so it doesn't get sucked up open and pull us out (I know a tornado, a 'real' tornado it outside passing over us now). I keep doing this, struggling, but the tornado never pulls the door open. So I'm still pulling on the door so that it won't swing open, but suddenly the wind changes direction and the entire front wall of my house now FALLS in. Since I'm in a crouching position near the door, I do one of those 'yeah it must be a dream' type moves and basically lift up the bottom of the wall as it falls over, basically allowing me to move under the wall unscathed. That's how that dream ends.

Tonight, another dream. I'm sitting in a store, reading a book for school or something (not sure why I would be in a store doing this, even though in my dream someone asked me what I was doing and I said I was reading a book here because it was quiet). Somehow I end up in what's a hotel. I go out on the balcolny, in a perfectly sunny day, and I look out towards the ocean and see those )(*!)*)!* tornadoes again. They're moving along the boulevard (road closest to the ocean), but they aren't directly over the ocean like most of the other ones from my last dream. They're moving south to north. Again, they are pretty much confined to this direction. Again, they're mainly two types; some of the tornadoes are tall and stringy, spiraling down to the ground. The others are just fat and massive, black masses. I see one that's huge, unlike any of the others I've seen. It's GIGANTIC, almost completely black, and almost a perfect V shape. I watch to my left as one tornado makes it way from the normal course, and heads inland, then stop, and starts a north-south direction on the second road from the ocean. I go inside, and soon, out the window I notice a tornado is about to pass over us. We all brace ourselves (a few members from my family are there, but not too many, maybe 3-4). Oddly enough the furniture in the room begins to spin around us, even though there is no damage that would allow the wind to get inside and move them like that. After a few revolutions, I look back out the window and it's almost like everything is tilted outside. I realize that the hotel is falling down. The next second I feel us falling down. I remember hoping that we were on a low floor (not that it would matter). But as we fall, I realize we must be pretty far up. Soon enough, we hit, and everything goes black. I realize that I died. It was hard to explain, I don't think I've ever died in my dreams before. It was complete blackness. And I remember TRYING to see if I could even understand that. I was trying to figure out if I felt anything, or if I felt 'nothingness.' I was trying to see if I could comprehend ANYTHING, to see if I still 'existed' basically. I realized I still could think, so I was just waiting around thinking there was going to be some nice afterlife escort coming for me in a few seconds. But there was just blackness. I think I managed to pry one eye open (not sure if this was in my dream or in real life, either way in my dream I didn't see anything again), and then I woke up.


So. Anyone have any clue what all this signifies? I have no idea why I would be dreaming about tornadoes so much. I did always have a fear of them growing up. One day, maybe when I was 21 or so, I did EXPERIENCE a tornado, while I was working it actually came down the boulevard (ie right over us). Oddly enough it was not bad at all. When it passed by, everything was grey, and we couldn't even see 20 feet across the street. It was a pretty powerful tornado all things considering, and there really was no damage then and I believe no one was even hurt in the entire town (it essentially came off the water, around the downtown area, and made it's way all the way along to our south border). I don't think I have some irrational everyday fear about being in a tornado either, so I'm not sure why I keep dreaming about these damn things. From my RL experience with them, I really shouldn't have anything to worry about. And hell it rarely rains/storms here anyway. That was the only tornado I've ever seen in this city in my 24 years of living, so needless to say they are very rare (almost non-existant).

Any advice?

I only read the first few sentences of your post, and not to be rude.... It was just because It amazed me so much! Ill go back and read it after I post, but I KNOW what it says already. You keep dreaming about tornados, and they are borderline nightmares or they are actual nightmares. You want to know why you are having them and or what they mean. Last but not least you possibly want to make them stop.

Let me shortly explain dreams to you from my point of view (Self proclaimed Expert dreamer) in a modern day approach. Dreams or the ability to dream now days is misunderstood and greatly under appreciated. Not sure if the dreams your having are nightmares. but lets take them for example. Nightmare or not, a dream is a dream. You have take them in any way, shape, or form you can get them. Let me explain....

With a bit of practice you would be able to turn any nightmare that you where into a regular dream or vise versa. The easiest way to do this is with a DREAM SIGN and a REALITY CHECK (I will explain reality check further if you want me to in another reply) . Your tornados are a MAJOR DREAM SIGN. You should be able to just look up at those tornados and think to yourself...... Hey, I remember telling myself at home. That If I see a tornado, I must be dreaming. Then do a REALITY CHECK. You should instantly go LUCID and then you could blow them tornados away with a sneeze =).

I can further explain LUCID or elaborate further on what I have wrote so far if you like.

I look at your recurring tornado dreams as a blessing form the dream gods. What they actually mean or why you are having them is for you to know, and you to find out. Not really to much importance in what they mean. You are either scared of them, live near them, or been in one. That is the only explanation other then you are just fascinated with them. But like I said, the best thing about them is. You can use them to induce Lucid Dreams. So there is no way you would ever want these to stop.

I personally love nightmares and will fabricate one at will while lucid. Then with a little practice. Loose my lucidity without waking and have a full blown nightmare. Scary as hell. But I love them and often do it on purpose.

I can explain further about how nightmares and regular dreams can greatly improve your waking life. If anyone cares to hear what I have to say.

Seeing a tornado in your dream, suggests that you are experiencing some extreme emotional outbursts and temper tantrums. Is there a situation or relationship in your life that may be potentially destructive? Dreaming that you are in a tornado means that you are feeling overwhelmed and out of control. You will be met with a series of disappointments for the next week or so. Your plans will be filled with complications. Seeing several tornadoes in your dream, represent people around you who are prone to violent outbursts and shifting mood swings. It may also symbolize a volatile situation or relationship.

Intersting - I recently (over the past two months) keep having dreams of tornados. Lots of them however, in my dreams they are just the precursor to serious natural disasters that follow (i.e. acid rain, fire balls, etc). And I told my daughter of these (she is 20) and she tells me she has been dreaming of tornados for quite some time now. I believe they are trying to tell us something.......are we listening?

In my opinion tornado dreams are meant to be an eye opener. Some are frightening, some are puzzling, but usually they demand our full attention and continue to cause uneasiness after we awake.

In my own experience with tornado dreams I've found the dark black/gray tornadoes (sometimes multiple) usually mean trouble, turmoil, upheavals, emotional whirlwinds.. etc. While the light colored tornadoes (or horizontal spirals as I call them) leave me with a more peaceful feeling.

There are many interpretations for dream symbols and they all vary slightly and some even drastically. I believe we must find our own interpretation so we can decide what our dreams are trying to tell us.

Here are some links:

Only once have I had a tornado dream that was a premonition. In the dream I was in my brothers house along with my son, my other brother (I have 2 brothers), my brothers girlfriend and her son. I looked out the window and saw thousands of tiny dark tornadoes forming in the sky; we were surrounded on every side. I kept telling my brother, "Look outside, that sky is frightening!" In the dream he kept trying to tell me not to worry about it.

Then I woke up.

A couple of weeks later we - myself, my 2 brothers, my son, my brothers girlfriend and her son (everyone who was in the dream) were in my brothers truck going somewhere. On our way home as we approached an intersection I said to my brother, "I do not like the looks of the sky, look at that cloud!" It was a huge black cloud but it did not look like a tornado. My brother made the comment, just like in the dream he said, "It's nothing. Don't worry!"

My brother drove right toward it but we couldn't see anything because at this point the rain was coming down so hard. Fear gripped me but I did not realize until after it was over that the dream I had was a premonition. We drove right into the path of a tornado. It wasn't a big tornado they classified it as an F2 (maybe we drove into the tail end of it) but we got the strong winds, the debris and for a few moments it felt as if the wind was going to lift the truck off the ground. It was very frightening.

Hope this helps you.

ive had dreams of tornados and balls of fire from the sky in the same dream. now what does that mean.

One of the most beautiful dreams I _EVER_ had was when the sky of my dream was FILLED with tornadoes twisting and moving in and out of each other.

But all the while, I could walk around them safe as I please, and they would just stay there.

I think it would obviously be looked upon to mean "Ferocity" or "viciousness" in your life, but it could also be change and movement.

W_HAMILTON, I have also had dreams with tornadoes. In my dream I was flying in a small airplane and was able to fly directly into the tornado with no effects of turbulance. I had consulted a local "dream expert" website. As shidge said, tornadoes signal some turbulence in your life, that you may not clearly see yet.

As in my dream, I have been having difficulties with my oldest son (skipping school and destructive behavior). But the good part (in my dream) is the airplane. It signifys the abilitiy to overcome this turbulence.

Hope this helps.
