Rapture dreams are those also that can create a strong reaction of a spiritual nature. Consider ways in which you are feeling guilty for your actions or not being true to your personal spiritual beliefs or feeling void of spiritual acceptance.
Dreaming of being left behind where others are taken in the rapture and you are alone is a reflection of feeling abandoned. Consider ways that you have been left behind in your life and if this is from someone else or because of your own doing.
Sometimes when you are afraid of being left behind this is really because you are in a place where you are leaving others behind such as changing jobs or graduating and moving on with your life.
Dreams like this can make you want to be closer to people and renew your own appreciation of these people in your life. Some people have even found religion through dreams like this as they have felt the presence of God and want to be with him.
The presence of friends and family around you in heaven indicate that you are being protected right now and that you are filled with people that love and cherish you. Sometimes these dreams have prophetic meanings and if you see someone who is living in a dream then in heaven, sometimes it can indicate a health issue or death that is imminent.
Dreams of the rapture can often leave a person feeling anxious and scared. People of all faiths can have a dream of rapture… even atheists. When you have a dream of the rapture, you need to take your own faiths into account before you can make a clear decision on what the dream meant.
These kinds of dreams can be a reaction to a highly religious childhood and a fear of abandonment. Often these dreams are ones filled with regret, even if you are the one going to heaven. Dreams of the rapture are an indication that your life is never going to be the same and understanding that there are changes going on in your waking world which cannot be reversed.
