Dreams about Houses
If you consider what a house means to us in waking life you can see how this has an influence on dreams about houses and what they represent for us in our dream life.
A home is a personal place, an environment offering affection and security.
And from the outside it is the personal structure that we present to the world.
Take into consideration sayings like "home is where the heart is and "there's no place like home" when considering the place that the home or house has in our society and consequently what it represents for you in your dreams.
Thus, it makes sense that dreams about houses will incorporate some of these common societal feelings about what a house is to us collectively.
Dreams about houses therefore can represent the life that you are living, the protections that you create and the structure you present to other people.
The environment you put yourself in in your dream reflects your state of mind or emotions you have about a particular life situation.
For instance, dreaming of a safe environment from your past, a parental home or a grandparents home suggests a regression to a time and place when you felt safe and cared for. You are seeking security, or the safety of childhood when there was little responsibility.
Or perhaps something in your life right now is making you feel like what these structures represent to you.
Perhaps the house you are dreaming about from your past was not a pleasant place for you and is somewhere you associate with pain.
Take a look at your life right now, what is bringing back this association from your past? What is making you feel the way you did when you were present in this house?
A presence or somebody else in the house could suggest you may be feeling threatened by an aspect of your own personality.
If there are different activities going on in the house, this could indicate conflicts between different parts of your personality, possibly the creative and intellectual.
If you dream about moving house or about construction on your dream house this can indicate change is needed or that your relationship with yourself needs to be repaired or worked on.
Throughout your dreams about houses look at the different rooms that you are in within the house as well and your personal associations with these rooms. They can definitely represent the different aspects of our personality and life experiences.
In general terms different rooms could mean:
If you are moving from room to room and going in and out of the house this indicates uncertainty about who you are right now or an awareness of different parts of your personality. You are potentially exercising the different personality traits, trying out different aspects of yourself. Perhaps you are going through a transition in your personality or trying to discover who you really are.
Also look at the items within this dream house, as they could definitely mirror some aspect of your character or day to day concerns.
