Detailed dream interpretation

If you dream about witnessing a demolition, and you wake up and feel uneasy after experiencing this dream, then this resembles your reality in some way. It may show that you have imagined it to happen and you are experiencing the aftermath. The other element of this dream is that you have been building up some type of emotional energy. The only way to remove this energy is to ensure that things in your life are in order.

To dream of a building demolition means that people around you cannot be trusted. It is important to consider all the circumstances within this dream. Are you destroying the building? Do you need to be in control? Is there somebody making you feel that you do not have power? To dream of looking through glass at a demolition means you will be disappointed in some way. If the window breaks, the dream suggests that one of your enterprises will end in a bad way.

Dreaming of a demolition suggests that you are about to initiate major changes in your life. You are overwhelmed with the process of change and you are under the impression that something will get out of your control. It is best to relax and let the action take its course. If you are not in control, there is no need to worry anyway.

A demolition can mean unhappiness and inner anxiety. This feeling can occur after a recent disaster, failure or disappointment. The demolition in your dream strongly suggests that you have been overwhelmed by the feelings generated by this recent event. Try to let go. The past is in the past and cannot be changed. It is better to focus on the present. You are anxious in the present, and therefore this should be your starting point. If the building you see being demolished is a small one, there is hope after a recent painful decision. Hang in there.

If you dream of demolished buildings and huge territories that are destroyed, it means that you must keep your temper and not get easily hurt in a situation in your waking life. Many demolished buildings refer to a bunch of feelings connected to a recent conflict with a loved one. It may also tell you that whatever upsets you is not real and you could give in and make peace. You may feel you should not be the one who initiates the process of healing and reconciliation, but you will be the winner if you do. Pay attention to the details in your dream: the color of the buildings, the smell in the air, and how big or small the destruction is.
