A lightning bolt in a dream or a flash of lightning or an experience with lightning in a dream is a wake-up call with a warning.
Just like it is that something is about to come down in your waking world, so too is the symbol in your dream world.
This symbol in your dream is a warning of sorts that a storm is brewing. The storm is an environmental concern, meaning it is not something that you can control in terms of whether or not it is going to happen. This is an external event that will cause some problems for a little while, but, like every storm, will eventually pass.
Dreaming About Being Struck By Lightning
If you dream you are struck by lightning this indicates that you are about to experience a sudden insight into your life. It may be shocking and unexpected but it is something that will shake up your whole world.
They say that lightning never strikes twice – but in dreams, anything is possible! If you are struck by lightning more than once in your dream, it indicates that you are going to have more than one big realization and it is important to mentally and emotionally prepare yourself.
This dream can also indicate a powerful spiritual awakening. Lightning is associated with the power of the gods from ancient times and if you are struck by lightning it could indicate an awakening of psychic gifts.
