Are you currently engaging in negative behaviors or are knowingly making wrong (or destructive) choices? Your unconscious mind may be warning you and at the same time encouraging you to alter those things in your life that may be hurtful and dangerous.
A dream involving fire usually has a comment to make on our physical and emotional potency and the way we express it in waking life. A dream of fire being put out by water may suggest physical energy being restrained by the cooler process of thought. If you see a house on fire, it could mean an impending illness. In men's dreams a blazing fire could mean that his passions are on fire. And if he is scared of the fire, he is afraid of a total commitment. A heavily smoking fire predicts bad luck. If you are lighting a fire, expect a new friendship or a romantic relationship. Dancing around fire denotes a party with friends.
Depending on the context of your dream, to see fire in your dream can symbolizes destruction, passion, desire, illumination, transformation, enlightenment, or anger. It may suggest that something old is passing and something new is entering your life. Your thoughts and views are changing. In particular, if the fire is under control or contained in one area, it is a metaphor of your own internal fire and inner transformation. It also represents your drive and motivation. Dreaming of that you are being burned by fire indicates that your temper is getting out of control. Some issue or situation is burning you up inside. Dreaming that a house is on fire means passion and loving companions. Dreaming that you put out a fire means that you will overcome your obstacles in your life through much work and effort.
Burning is a tremendous fear many people from many different cultures hold in common. However, it is often simultaneously associated with purification. To pass through fire intact is to see oneself as becoming purified. However, being burned may indicate that one perceives life as extraordinarily threatening and painful. If a particular object is on fire (house, car, etc.), this may symbolize over-commitment to it or fear of a world without it.
Freud found fire to be a symbol of male power. In this case, fire may indicate control over a circumstance or a struggle to feel that way, depending on whether the fire is controlled or not.
Do you question your own morality at times? Are you seeking cleansing from a bad experience?
Do you perceive your own life is about to go through a significant transition that requires spiritual preparation?
Fire is a combination of heat, passion, and lust. A blazing, raging, and out of control fire expresses our emotions at their most unpredictable and destructive. Deciding to fight or escape from a fire, in your dreams, could reveal your ability or inability to confront your inner most feelings. However, fire also represents light, warmth, and hearth (security); and can be a cleansing potential that clears and opens new vistas and lights the way through the darkness of life. Fire, like many familiar elements from everyday experience, is a complex symbol. It can symbolize passion, anger, the spirit, cooking, purification, transformation, illumination, and destruction. Our language contains expressions like "being fired up", "getting fired up", "getting burned", and "passing the torch". The particular meaning of fire in a dream can be determined from other cues in the dream landscape.
Symbol of urgency and transition. When something burns, it changes from one state to another. If a parent dreams her child is caught in a fire, for example, she may be concerned about a new stage of growth she is witnessing. Fire also can be a symbol of passion and creation, as in “a smoldering fire.”
