Have you ever experienced a real earthquake in your waking life?
Quite literally, everything changes in just a matter of moments as the foundations around and beneath you shift.
This causes things to fall, break, and crumble all around you.
Even if you haven’t experienced what it feels like to be in the midst of a real earthquake, you may have still had a dream about one recently.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll actually experience an earthquake where you actually live, but it could allude to other deeper meanings about what’s happening within you on an internal level.
Your dreams have a mysterious way of revealing hidden emotions, sending you messages, and bringing forth aspects of yourself that need to be healed in your waking life.
In this article, we will be covering the different meanings behind dreams about earthquakes.
Hopefully, you will come across a message, sign, or symbol that resonates with you and that can help you on your healing journey.
Understanding Earthquakes in Real Life Can Help You Understand Why They Show Up In Your Dreams
If you take the time to study nature in real life, you can learn a lot about yourself, the world around you, and why certain things show up for you in the astral realm.
Earthquakes are classified as natural disasters, or a disruption in weather.
Earthquakes have happened since the beginning of time, signifying that there are shifts happening on an internal level even with the earth.
A spiritual principle to also integrate is the idea that everything that’s happening outside of you is also happening within you — as above, so below.
With that in mind, you can take a lot away from studying nature, especially when it comes to earthquakes.
While everything may seem fine on the surface, there are tectonic plates that help keep the foundations beneath us stable and secure.
Whether we are aware of it or not, there are always very small changes happening internally that we may not be able to recognize.
Earthquakes take place when these changes cause the plates beneath to collide and create what seems to be “destruction.”
The beautiful thing about destruction is that through the collapse of what once was, there will soon be a new foundation to begin creating something new.
The changes happening internally are now exposed and must be adjusted to.
This understanding can help you better understand the powerful meaning behind having a dream about earthquakes or why this type of dream is showing up for you.
Your Life Is Experiencing Sudden Changes or Shifts
One of the most common dream interpretations for dreams about earthquakes is the obvious one that there are major changes happening in your life.
As mentioned above, earthquakes don’t just happen suddenly.
In fact, there are very tiny shifts that are constantly happening beneath the surface that eventually lead up to the natural disaster.
You may not have paid much attention to the minute things that have been shifting in your life or around you, but eventually the changes will make themselves known.
If you recently had a dream about an earthquake, this could be a warning that something big is going to happen that may cause you to have to change directions in your life.
Not to be corny, but things are about to be shaken up!
Rather than being fearful of the changes that are going to inevitably happen, lean into the beauty of the destruction.
An earthquake is something that can’t be controlled, no matter how hard you try.
It would be better to allow the destruction to take place and try to prepare for it as best as you can.
This dream could be a warning that you should start planning to protect your most valuable assets in order to have resources around you while you make this big transition to the next phase in your life.
You Have The Ability to Recover From Anything You’re Facing
While many of us are fearful of destruction, many times these catastrophic situations are things that are going to happen whether we feel prepared or not.
It’s best to try to adjust to them or prepare beforehand.
However, the worst thing you can do is stand paralyzed in fear, taking no action.
Yes, there are casualties and losses that occur when a huge natural disaster like an earthquake happens, but if you observe the aftermath once an earthquake has passed, there is a strength that makes its way to the forefront.
You’ll find that communities band together by putting forth their resources, energy, compassion, and time to create something new.
Even if you don’t feel that you have tons of resources or support, having a dream about the aftermath of an earthquake can let you know that you are surrounded by more help than you know.
This type of dream may be coming to you to remind you of your inner power, resilience, and that you have the strength to recover from any situation.
You may need to ask for a bit of help from those around you, but that doesn’t make you weak.
It’s Time to Face Your Biggest Fears
If your dream about an earthquake wasn’t so much focused on the earthquake itself, but you and how you were reacting to it, there could be a deeper meaning to your dream.
This is especially true if you had a dream about being injured during the earthquake dream.
If you fell victim to objects falling around you, causing a major injury, this could mean that you’re afraid of being hurt either physically or emotionally in your waking life.
As mentioned above, earthquakes are uncontrollable and will happen whether you’re ready or not.
If you keep obsessing over the changes that are eventually going to come, this could be a sign from your dreams that you are manifesting the worst possible case scenario.
Although earthquakes are inevitable, you could still use your powerful energy to prepare and send out positive energies to keep you safe and protected.
Whether you’ve realized your own power or not, you could change the trajectory of your future by acting now in the right direction rather than focusing on what’s not working for you at the moment.
