Dream About Fire – Spiritual Meaning & Symbolism

Have you had a dream about fire recently? Dreams of fire have several meanings because they depend on several factors, such as if you had the fire under control and put it out, if your car, house, or forest was on fire, or the extent and size of that fire you saw.

In general, the fire in a dream points to a problem that is currently taking place. For example, it is a small, trivial problem if you dream of a small fire. If you manage to put out the fire, you will be able to solve the problem. However, if you see dry grass burning and the fire progresses, you probably have significant escalating issues, and it’s time to intervene because you still have a chance to do something about it.

Let’s look at the individual interpretations of the dream of fire and what they mean.

dream about fire

Dream about putting out the fire

Summary: Overcoming obstacles or problems.

The dream of putting out a fire is a good sign. It means overcoming obstacles or problems you are currently facing. Whether you put out the fire yourself or with the help of someone else, the meaning of this dream is the same. This dream says that you have everything under control and know how to solve current problems.

Dream about starting a fire

Summary: Feeling weak and powerless. Revenge.

This “fire dream” predicts that you “throw stones under your feet” yourself. Even though you know that something is not correct or beneficial to you or that it will cause you trouble, you keep doing that. It seems like you were pouring gasoline on the fire, making it even stronger. This dream points to a restless mind and an inability to think rationally. Maybe you feel like you don’t have enough strength and would instead give up on everything.

If you had a dream, such as setting someone’s house or car on fire, it points to some revenge or holding on to anger. Maybe you have bad intentions or don’t wish others any good. It’s time to let go of all resentment and hatred because it won’t do you any good.

Dream of a forest fire

Summary: Loss of faith. Spiritual crisis.

The tree as a dream symbol is often interpreted as spirituality, God, or the basis of life, and this dream speaks of a spiritual crisis or the loss of faith. You may be aware of your spiritual powers, but you are not using them to your advantage. For example, you may know that you can heal yourself or attract good things to your life with positive thoughts, but you still think negatively.

You may not be sure which spiritual direction to take or lose faith in God. It is possible that because you have lost faith in all good things, your thoughts create obstacles and problems that manifest at lightning speed.

Dream about fire in the sky

Summary: Significant changes.

The dream of fire in the sky foretells some significant changes. Whether these are positive or negative changes depends on the other details in your dream and the feelings that this dream has evoked in you. This dream also speaks of some awareness. You may have realized that you are the creator of your life and that it is time to take control of your life and make essential changes in your waking life.

Dream about burning partner/seeing your partner in fire

Summary: Suppressed passion.

This dream says that you or your partner longs for something the other cannot give. Often people who have a strong sexual desire, a desire to travel, or undertake an adventure, have this dream. This is probably because their partner is reticent or cold, suppressing their desires and putting out the flame (passion) in them. If this situation familiarizes you, talk to your partner and make some changes. Otherwise, your intense desire may “burn” you.

Dream about a house on fire

Summary: Hopelessness. No confidence.

As a dream symbol, the house speaks of security and ourselves (physical and spiritual body) as such. Dreaming of a house on fire often means that your subconscious mind is trying to tell you something. This dream speaks more of the presence (of what is happening within you now) than of some event that will occur in the future.

Seeing a house on fire means losing faith in yourself and your abilities. You may feel that everything you have done or built in recent years has been worthless or that you are losing it. It’s usually just a feeling resulting from a bad mental state, and it doesn’t mean you’re losing anything. However, these are rather negative feelings that need to be removed.
