Nightmare Detective

The warmth of fire in your dreams can be quite comforting, but when it takes on the form of a nightmare, it may feel unsettling. Fire in dreams often symbolizes passion, transformation, or destruction, depending on its context.

If the fire is destructive in your dream, it could indicate that there are drastic changes happening in your life or that some intense emotions are consuming you[^1^]. If you’re unharmed by the fire, it could point to a transformative phase you’re undergoing[^2^].

It’s important not to let this alarm you, but rather use it as an insight into your emotional state or current life situation.
