Dreaming of fire is a very common dream; fire is a male principle connected to creation and psychic energy; it can show itself with a double face: on the one hand it is a source of heat, health, light, well-being, energy; on the other hand, when it flares up, it brings death, destruction and damnation
Fire has always been very important for man: the discovery of fire has been decisive for human evolution; it allowed the development from a primitive state to the birth of civilization.
Since ancient times, fire has been present in many myths and legends: for example, think of the myth of Prometheus, who stole fire from the gods to bring it to humanity, and who was then severely punished for this. This demonstrates how fire is connected to an idea of superior, higher spiritual knowledge and strength, to which man has had access only from a certain moment, with pain and sacrifice, and after having openly defied laws and taboos. .
Fire is an element connected to inner spirituality, faith and divinity, and this is also evident from the role it plays in many religious ceremonies and in the very language of sacred books.
