One common dream theme that both men and women have is dreams about fire. Fire dreams can represent a variety of different things in your waking life. Since dreams often reflect our own aspects and emotions, your dream about fire can be representing the emotions that you are feeling in your waking life.

When early man first discovered fire, it brought them protection that was much needed. As time passed, fire was used for many things. Today, fire is just as important as it is nearly used in every type of metal industry. When we dream about fire, it can represent both positive and negative attributes.

Your dream about fire was probably brought on by your emotions and the current situations that are going on in your life. Fire symbolizes many different things, positive and negative. Fire represents protection, renewal, regeneration, passion, transition, and change. Fire also symbolizes destruction, anger, and fiery.

Dreams about fire often represent change, transformation, and transition. Dreaming about fire can symbolize the old saying, "out with the old, in with the new."

The changes and transition occurring in your waking life may bring positive emotions or negative emotions. It just all depends on the transformation you are going through. What is changing in your waking life? Have you lost an old aspect of yourself? Our you on a new course or journey in your waking life? How did you feel emotionally when you dreamed about fire? Were you scared of the fire? All these questions can help determine what your fire dream means.

Change can be good and change can bad. This is one reason why many people feel scared in their fire dream. This is because they are scared of change in their waking life. Most of us feel comfortable with routines in our waking life. By having a routine, we are aware of our surroundings and we know what to expect for the most part. Once change occurs, we feel like we our lost, out of our element even. However, transition and change can be good. Fire dreams may refer to a promotion, becoming a young adult, or a new child to the family. Remember, your dream about fire can symbolize any type of change or transformation occurring in your waking life.

      I do dream of fire on occasion and it didn't occur to me that it represented change. Those dreams tend to happen during times of change, so that interpretation makes sense. Voting this Up and Interesting.

      Although I’ve never had a dream solely about fire, I think your meaning and scenarios are fascinating. Since I do have dreams about water, I’m off to take a peek at what you’ve written. Excellent hub.
