How many times have you woken up from a dream of fire, only to find yourself fearful and out of breath? If you have a vision that reoccurs on a nightly basis, you may eventually begin to wonder if there's an underlying meaning behind this dream.
That being said, fire can indicate many different things in your waking life depending on how it's presented to you while you're asleep. One assumption is that a vision of another object burning may indicate purification in your life. This may mean that you're going through a cleansing period and entering a new chapter. In this sense, the dream has a positive connotation.
If a fire is burning something you love such as your home, some people believe this indicates that you're becoming a victim of your own passions. This vision may mean you need to be more cautious in the near future about everything from lust to greed.
