What are possible meanings for dreams of nuclear bombs?
When a situation in life “goes nuclear” it means it is highly dangerous and explosive. We use the term to describe a huge and momentous event or battle. Dreams exaggerate, so it’s not as if bombs are dropping, but in some way the imagery fits. A nuclear war implies that a situation is really bad, beyond just the normal squabbling and bickering that can be symbolized in dreams as fighting or warfare. The situation is in “meltdown.”
Take the idea further and it can apply to situations where all other options have been exhausted. Dialogue and negotiation have stopped. You’re helpless to change the situation or prevent the inevitable. Extreme measures are needed.
In this sense, nuclear war is like the symbolism of war, only more of it. It’s war on steroids.
Bombs in dreams can symbolize something explosive, such as a temper, and a nuclear bomb takes the symbolism to the next level to describe something really explosive—blow-your-top explosive. The wording is seen in the dream imagery.
It implies hostility, destructiveness, even rage.
Symbolism is based subjectively on your perceptions and feelings, not necessarily on objective analysis. For example, you wreck the car and tomorrow your spouse returns from a trip. You haven’t said anything about the accident. You expect the situation could “go nuclear.” The imagery of a nuclear bomb exploding is fitting.
Nuclear war ties in with “end of the world” and “apocalypse.” When used figuratively it means a situation changes drastically for the worse, or threatens to. The symbolism applies to situations such as bad health problems, divorce, and death. Again, it’s an exaggerated way of expressing the dynamics of a situation, especially the feelings and emotions involved. Facing a major decline in your health, wealth, or status can seem like the end of the world because it means the end of your world as you know it.
The idea can apply broadly. For example, “bombing” a college entrance exam can mean the end of your college plans. Royally screwing up at work can mean you might be fired. Saying something really inappropriate can mean the end of a relationship or ruin of your reputation. Getting into trouble with the law can cause devastation in your life. It’s the possibility of it that gets translated into dream imagery of mushroom clouds and nuclear missiles.
A mushroom cloud is an apt metaphor for a feeling of dread or something that’s inevitable or unstoppable. Most of the analogies used in this entry connect with extreme situations, but don’t limit yourself. Usually the connection with the feelings is most important.
Nuclear war can describe extreme inner conflict. Something inside you resists change and will fight to the end, even take you down with it. See: Shadows
It can mean you’re facing big changes in yourself and your life, or so sick of being the way you are that you are ready to wipe it all out and start over again. That idea can apply to “nuking” a relationship or situation. It’s over, finished.
A nuclear explosion can’t be escaped. It destroys everything, and that destruction can be a metaphor for death. It will come for you eventually and there’s no escaping it. However, the same idea can apply to any sort of end that’s inevitable.
Your dreams can visualize bodily processes happening as you sleep. If you eat some five-alarm chili and go to bed with it burning away in your bowels, you might dream about it as a nuclear blast.

Dream about city being bombed
So the first thing I can remember in this dream is being on a highway and missiles raining down on what I assume to be my home city, and at first I was a little anxious in a fight or flight kind of way, and then I saw a bus sitting on the highway abandoned with the key still in the ignition. I went into the bus and peered out the window watching the city go up in balls of flame and explosions. I was in awe and elated to see such magnificent destruction and raw power, but I kind of snapped out of it and went to the driver's seat and drove for a while until I was in an empty street with a dark green dilapidated house on the corner. I looked into the sky and saw three suns, a big one in front of me, and two on either side of me. I was amazed but a little concerned because I started to rationalize what I was seeing and thinking of what these suns could possibly be and for some reason I thought that maybe they were the aftereffects of nukes on our atmosphere. I ran into the house and on the TV a newswoman was talking about how the internet was down and their station was trying to get to the bottom of what was happening so: "people can get back to chatting on the internet" pretty wild dream, but I'm guessing the significance of the bombings was that I'm pretty interested in geopolitics and North Korea in particular. I can't place what the significance of the three suns could be though.

The other night I had a dream I was at a dinner party at my brothers house. I live in Alaska and it was winter in my dream. Out of nowhere I ended up figuring out I could fly. At first I couldn’t control it and I was getting stuck to the ceiling. But when I managed to control it I went outside and I could fly as high or far as I wanted. And I could see all the landscape of my hometown. Then I decided to fly to Mexico. I remember so vividly flying over the boarder and going into Mexico which I’ve never been in my life. Any way when I get there there was this Mexican kid with braces and curly hair (and he was deaf) who I’ve never seen before and everyone in the town called him the Prophet. In my dream he waved me down and I flew to him to see what was up and he had this mural on a wall inside of a church. On the painting it showed the tree where eve had taken the apple of wisdom. And to the left of that was a painting of me flying titled “the miracle”. To the left of that was a painting of a 3 headed lamb with 3 eyes on each head but one of the heads had a stab wound. It was titled “the lamb (the sacrifice)”. To the left of that was a painting of 3 men in suits. Two of the men had white suits with eyes of every color all over the suits and they had no faces. The man in the middle was a blonde man with slicked back hair. This was called “the false prophets”. The last painting to the left was of 9 lights or shields flying in the sky. This painting was called “the revelation”. After this deaf kid showed me all this he violently started painting the tree from Eden and turned it into a mushroom cloud. Like a nuke went off. And he explained that the right side of the painting would be done after God unleashed his wrath. And after this there was some dialogue I can’t remember but then I flew up i into the sky and met 9 flying saucers that turned into metallic angels with golden wings. That was when I woke up. I read revelations growing up in a religious house but I’ve never been religious personally. But this dream I had felt like I was in revelations.

Has anyone else gotten this type of dream?
Recently over the past couple months, I've had a dream when I guess the sun(maybe moon) kind of explodes? I've had this dream atleast 3 times, it's always the same type of story? It's starts out either me knowing what's going to happen and trying to tell others or i know what's about to happen and I watch.
I find out a volcano is about to erupt, I panic trying to convince everyone to leave but everyone says "there's no time" some girl after that had a brain injury and some helicopter came down and only took her. It obviously angered me but then I got distracted by a large boom sound (the volcano has erupted as I'm assuming). We all hid in a hospital,then I wake up in a home, it's night and I can see the volcano has started to erupt. I see the sun(maybe moon but the sky was gray full of ash) and it moves near my home and it was preparing to explode, it make like a black hole with white things circling it. After that the black hole thing moved away from the white lines, and then lowers itself and explodes like a nuke or a bomb,but it didn't affect me. It just scared me to the point I was trying to escape from something, someone,maybe nothing even. After that a giant futuristic robot was taking people who survived and after that kinda of a blur. A part of me feels like the girl is imposter in some way.
(Sorry for that bad english)

End of Times?
Hi, I’ve never really felt this taken back and shook/disturbed by a dream. It wasn’t necessarily nightmare but I can’t remember everything. I’m 22(M), engaged to my fiancé with a beautiful baby boy and our dog. I am your average midwestern person. As well, a believer of God and Jesus, but not a seriously religious individual. I fell asleep around 1:20AM and just woke up at 2:15AM. So I would assume I was in REM sleep.
So the dream goes like this:
There was something very eerie about the day it was taking place. Things weren’t right, the news and radio that was on were reporting of mass panic. I was in a weird house(not one I recognized). It was myself, my fiancé, our baby, our dog, her parents and brothers, and my mom, grandpa, uncle, aunt and cousin. Everyone was very concerned about what was going to happen. The only thing was nobody knew what was going to happen. Just this big event. I started packing my bags. A couple changes of clothes, my hiking/camping gear, my camera gear, food, etc. I seemed to be packing a bug out bag. As I am packing it, my fiancé yells at me to stop panicking and stressing because it’s making things worse. The baby starts crying and I just leave my bag and go look out the window and it’s storming still. However the door, window, and corner wall of this house had now gone missing. So I go and sit down, then the dog starts freaking out and shortly after everyone notices it. There was this white noise that was almost like a high pitch frequency that set the dog off first then people could hear it. It got more intense quickly. I immediately felt the urge to move quickly to hold my fiancé and baby tight. As I do this I felt a warm sensation as I held my fiancé, then bam I wake up.
I am not sure what any of this means. I’m now up almost an hour later, very taken back by this dream. Was it the rapture, a mass extinction event, a nuclear bomb? Regardless this dream felt extremely real. I’ve been researching bug out plans and things like that.
What does this all mean?
What would be the best resolutions to calm my nerves.
