Fire Dream Meanings

Fire in dreams is power, you have the power to seek revenge, you have the power to destroy, you have the power to cut people off, you have the power of passion in life, and you have the power to be who you want to do. Turning to the bible fire is a symbol of guidance by God, fire is power, protection over people, and a metaphor for when you are shaken, upset, and uneasy but you can purify yourself as - boy this is a time to get you out of anything that brings you wisdom and knowledge. You have an opportunity right now to do something as just as the fire raged in the dream it is time for you to rage that passion you have inside. 

Why is your dream important? Remember, fire in life is practiced in every type of ceremony. From church candles, cremation, and keeping us warm in the wintertime.

The California fire burned trees, and houses, the wind was sweeping, it kept burning on. Crops and property were demolished. Every fire goes out, you cannot stay on fire for long. But when you are on fire that is when the work starts and that you get everything you want. You have the power right now to get what you want. Things will change.
