Meaning and Symbolism
To dream that a building is collapsing can have different interpretations, of course, depending on how we dreamed of it.
What kind of a feeling we had while the dream lasted also changes its connotation? Try to recall as many details as you can.
This is not a pleasant dream at all, especially if you are in a multi-story building that has started to collapse; it is the feeling of panic, dread, and pure horror that is all around you.
This is the type of dream that can easily get you out of bed – and we are certain that when you had it, you woke up in a sweat, thanking God that this was just a dream, not a reality.
In a version of a dream where you have to see yourself in a building that started collapsing, and you didn’t manage to escape from it in time, it could mean that you are the type of person who doesn’t like to risk a lot in life. You follow the paths you know and don’t like them to turn in fear of going astray. You are a person who does not have too much life experience, and you have always had a better sparrow in your hand than a pigeon on a branch, which is your life motto. You will never risk anything because you are drowned with fears that you are losing what you have, even if you are not happy with what you have currently.
This dream, in fact, speaks of your accumulated dreams and desires that you are too scared to pursue, so you feel like you are collapsing. In this sense, you are the building that appears in a dream.
However, if you dreamed that you were in a building that was starting to collapse and you managed to save yourself by jumping out of the window of one of the apartments and hanging on a tree, you are a person who is not afraid to try something new and to deviate from the path she knows in order to gain some new life experience, be it bad or good. You are an adventurer and a favorite in the society that surrounds you.
If you dreamed of being in a collapsing high-rise building and you saved yourself by simply flying off it, it could mean that you are an open-minded person for whom there are no obstacles.
It is not difficult for you to do anything for yourself or for others, and you will go far in the future.
But, here there is something that is much more important, in the sense that you are aware of how much is important to risk in life because you will sometimes lose and learn from it, but you will gain even more, more than you could ever imagine.
Even more, it is the life you love to live, with your wings spread and without a plan, waiting the last minute to do it.
To dream of watching a building collapse from afar may mean that you will be able to help someone and do nothing about it. You will probably refuse to help someone who has done you any harm in the past and are now watching her fall. The advice is to try to gather strength and provide help, regardless of your past.
However, it will sometimes bother you, and you will not have a peaceful sleep since you are a conscientious person. Forgive, but don’t forget.
This dream is so important for the process of understanding what is good and bad when to help, and more importantly, when to back off and move away.
Those who are able to do it to make this difference are considered to be very happy, and it is mandatory not to overthink it.
There are some more versions of this dream where the main motive is collapsing buildings.
For example, the one where you have a dream that the building collapsed while you were walking down the street next to you, and you remained uninjured. What a dream, what an amazing symbolism to look at!
Such a dream may suggest that you will avoid an accident in the waking state without even being aware of it.

The most important thing here, regarding this dream, is the fact that you realize that there is a greater force than we are and that we must show respect to it, by all means. There are things that are bigger than we are.
