Dream meaning of fire

Fire is a powerful element with destructive force, which is capable of destroying all the possessions of our lives, so it usually raises fears in our dreams, especially if it appears in the form of large flames.

Besides, of course, it also personifies light and warmth, but in dreams, we usually associate it with danger, less often with the warmth of a home fire. Besides, fire rarely appears in our dreams as a neutral or positive motif, it is most often negatively characterized, if only because it is accompanied by violent events that make us fearful, even if fire does not threaten us directly.


We also usually dream that we are fleeing from a fire that is constantly approaching us, or its rays are consuming what is important to us.

Sometimes in the dream, we try to extinguish the fire, or we put it out and enjoy the sight of the flames consuming an ever-increasing area, and in turn, these kinds of dreams can cause us to worry about dangerous or strange inclinations that we have not yet discovered.

In the most dramatic version of the fire dream, a loved one dies in the flames or we ourselves are burned. Sometimes, however, the fire in the dream is not a threat to us, but we only dream, for example, that we stare at the flames as if hypnotized, and in turn, such a dream usually puts us in a state of confusion, but we also have a feeling that it must have meant something important.

We may also be warming ourselves by the fire, which fills us with bliss and a sense of security, but this kind of dream usually happens to us less often than the negative ones.

Interpreting dreams about fire

Fire in a dream can be equated with divine power, purification, as well as fertility, and vital forces. It is also a symbol of the sun and the masculine element, associated with primal instincts and aggressive male power.

We can also associate it with all intensity, rage, and destructive power, but also transformation into new, energy and passion.

If we dream of fire and in waking life we have never experienced its destructive power, when interpreting the dream, first of all, we need to take into account what kind of feelings the fire arouses in us in the dream and whether these emotions are negative, positive, or mediated.

Also important is our reaction, that is, the actions we take, whether trying to extinguish or fuel the fire or any other actions. It is also important what consumes the fire in our dream, because even objects or objects that at first glance may not have any meaning for us, may turn out to be correlated with our lives in some way.


When a fire appears in our dream, it may mean that in waking life we are suppressing some great stress, perhaps as a result of the accumulation of problems in our lives that we can’t quite cope with. It can also be a sign that we are suppressing some intense emotions within ourselves and are afraid that someday we will no longer be able to keep them in check and they will get out of our control.

When we dream that we are on fire, it is a sign that in waking life we place limitations on ourselves that enslave us, because we do not allow ourselves to give in to passion, passion, or some feelings.

When we dream that we see a great pillar of fire in the sky, it means that subconsciously we realize that a good time is coming for us and soon there will be some very happy event for us in our lives.

An extinguishing fire appearing in our dream is a signal that we are afraid that we will face worse times financially, and at the same time, it is a signal from our subconscious to already start saving and preparing for the coming lean times.

If in a dream we stare at a burning fire, it means that in our subconscious there is a very vivid desire for us to gain a higher level of self-awareness.

If in a dream we have been burned by fire, it means that we are very ashamed or feel guilt from something that happened in our real life, although perhaps this is done only at the level of our subconscious, because we try to suppress these feelings in ourselves.

When we dream of a burning person we know in waking life, it could mean that in waking life someone has recently betrayed us, or we are currently in a situation, perhaps some kind of relationship, but not necessarily, that is causing us to stagnate and have no chance of further growth and progress.

Interpreting fire dreams according to Freud

Freud believed that fire dreams allude to nocturnal wetting, which took place during the dreamer’s childhood.


Interpreting dreams about fire according to Jung

Jung believed that fire appearing in a dream is a sign that some important transformation will soon take place in the dreaming person’s life, most likely related to the fact that they will experience some spiritual awakening and this will have great consequences for their existence.

When you dream about something on fire, even about yourself on fire, it can mean that you are experiencing a significant event in your life that will change you greatly.

Passion: strong feelings

We often associate fire with passion, this applies to feelings, love, relationships, and commitment in any area of life.


Dreams about fire can also be a symbol of strength. It can mean strong feelings, but also power in your life to help you achieve your goals and aspirations.

Many people practice release ceremonies with fire, which symbolizes the ultimate transformation and change, a departure from what was. If you are releasing a lot of emotions or have a lot of feelings that may need to be released, fire often appears in dreams.

Spiritual teachings

Fire can be a symbol of the Holy Spirit in Catholic studies – or a symbol of fire and sulfur, or the devil.

A candle can often be a sign of release. The color of the candle may have some meaning, as candles are often used in religion and meditation.


Campfires are a place for socializing and relaxation. If you dream about a bonfire with a group of friends it may mean that you feel a spiritual connection with these people.
