Dreams are considered a source of important revelations about the human psyche because they are the fruit of the subconscious, which never creates them randomly. But, given its so veiled and fragmented appearance, regularly illogical, and the impossibility of knowing whether certain dream content implies something meaningful or not, dream interpretations have focused on finding a way to replace its illegible elements by clear elements.
Dreaming of a tornado: a warning
In general, dreaming of a tornado implies a warning. If the hurricane manifests with great force, the problems you will have to face will be very strong. A tornado in a dream can also indicate that you are going through inner conflicts. Climatic turbulences represent great challenges that you will have to face.
The interpretation due to Sigmund Freud, on tornadoes and hurricanes, is linked to the power of the libido and, more precisely, to the orgasmic force. Tornado dreams reveal fear of sexuality, as well as the passion it produces.
This type of dream puts the person in a dilemma; Accept the power of passion and harness its potential, or go against it. In this case, he would be continuously subjected to the attraction of the impulse of Eros (instinct of life), which could transform into Thanatos (instinct of death), if he were not able to understand the power of passion.
Other versions of dreaming about tornadoes
According to the symbology proposed by Carl Jung, the hurricane is something that rages through submission to devastating and evil powers.
This type of dream, seen from analytical psychoanalysis, has a compensatory function. It is possible that when you complain about a flat life without major shocks, dreams become very restless, such as experiencing tornadoes, whirlpools and storms.
Dreams can also manifest psychic elements of enormous power.
Dreaming of tornadoes: means of interpretation
It is common for people to give value or interpretation to dreams through two means.
The first relates to the entire content of the dream and seeks to replace it with another content, intelligible and similar in certain points, which corresponds to a symbolic interpretation. Obviously, it is not possible to apply a norm, which makes it possible to carry out a symbolic interpretation. It depends on the subjectivity of the interpretation.
On the contrary, a second popular method has sought to shed light on the content of dreams through decipherment, based on the idea that the dream is a kind of secret writing. Understood in this way, dream images would be signs which can be substituted, thanks to predefined keys, by others of known meaning.
The personality and situation of the dreamer
Not only the content of the dream must be taken into account, but the personality and situation of the dreamer as well. Similar dreams have different meanings for rich, poor, single or married, etc.
The important thing in the method that seeks to "decipher" the dream is that the interpretation is not based on the entire dream, but on each of its elements. The dream is seen as the sum of its parts, in which each fragment requires a unique interpretation. The experience of impossible, incoherent and imprecise dreams is at the origin of the method of decipherment.
Dreaming of a tornado, more specific aspects
In this sense, dreaming of whirlwinds and strong wind movements regularly has several meanings. It all depends on the immediate events happening in your life. A life with great changes, which happens dizzily, can lead to dreams of tornadoes and whirlwinds.
A complicated life, full of suffering, can also manifest itself in whirling dreams. Worries manifest in the unconscious through such dreams.
Indeed, tornadoes being turbulent natural entities, dreaming about them is linked to great transformations in human life. These unforeseen changes are directly linked to the evolution of the subjects' lives. They can be positive or negative, it all depends on the context of the dream, where the tornado appears and the reaction of the person experiencing the dream.
