Regardless if you might think this dream is a bad omen or not, just remember after the rain it becomes sunny again. In the classic ancient Chinese philosophy of  Yin & Yang, rain act as the feminine energy (yin) that balances the masculine side of you (yang); a symbol that represents the sun. Spiritually speaking this duality or complementary forces will emerge in your dream to represent the balancing of these two unconscous forces.

Rain can be a positive symbol regardless of its force as a message to imply a return of feelings after a long spell of dry intellectualism or drought. This might why DESERT dreams are seen as negative omens that represent a lack of the right nourishment in these areas in your mind. Noticing a soft or gentle rainfall implies a release from ideas and intellect.

Rain in the Bible can be seen as a positive omen implying that renewal is on its way.  Just as rain refreshes dry soil, God refreshes the souls of His people with His Holy Spirit.

Rains are heralded as a blessing from the Almighty and they are considered harbingers of good fortune. Rain’s peaceful presence is can be seen as a gift given to you by the Lord above. “Be still and know that I am God.” [Psalm 46:10] Rain can make us stop and be still suggesting it might be time to reflex or reserve your energy.

If you think about it rain make us pause in our day-to-day lives to soak up the surroundings and the moment that we are in. And with this comes a peace that can be overwhelming and so satisfying.

I had a dream that it started raining crosses around me. I was on a hill running towards my house surrounded by different colored snakes (all dark colors). They were following me towards my house. I banged on the door but couldn’t get in and no answered. It was dark and I was terrified.
