A storm in a dream often represents several things such as being of a prophetic nature and foretelling ‘storms’ to come in your waking life, or it can speak of emotional turbulence that exists within yourself.
A storm dream can be a troubling dream to have and there may be destruction that comes with it.
Pay attention to the details in your dream as these give clues as to what area of life a ‘storm’ may affect you.
Dreaming About Being In a Storm
A storm in your dream is the same symbol that a storm in waking life represents. There may be trouble in the forecast at some point. What part of your life the storm is entering is the question you want to ask yourself when a storm crops up in your dream.
There may be a large unsettling event in your near future, and the length and duration, and effects of the storm in your dream will help you understand how bad this event will be.
The storm could be symbolizing a number of pent up emotions that you may need to contend with in your waking life. If spirituality has been an important part of your life recently, the storm could be signifying tremendous blessings on their way to you.

Dreaming About Helping Others During a Storm
If there is a storm in your dream and you are helping others – such as keeping them warm, rescuing them, or even displaying superpowers to fight the storm – it is an indication of the inner strength and resilience you possess to tackle challenges in your waking life.
It is important to note how you handle the storm in your dream if you are able to, as this symbolizes your ability to weather through whatever difficulties may be on their way to you.
Dreaming About Bolts of Lightning
If there are bolts of lightning in your dream while the storm rages this can indicate a burst of creativity that will soon be upon you. Flashes of inspiration may soon affect your life in a dramatic way.
Lightning dreams may also highlight anger coming from people in positions of authority in your waking life.
If you get struck by lightning in your dream, the dream is likely warning you to watch out!
Dreaming About Thunder
If an object or other person appears during the thunder in your dream then it may be an indication that this person is someone you are opposing or will oppose during your waking life.
This dream can also represent an aspect of yourself that you are uncomfortable with. The thunder may be the voice of your subconscious or an authority figure in your life who is calling you to pay attention to what it is about yourself that causes you such discomfort.
