If you had a dream about a house, it can represent a variety of different emotions that may relate back to your waking life. Dreams about houses are quite common among both men and women. Since dreams represent our emotions, the same can be said when you dream about a house. There are a variety of different scenarios when it comes to house dreams. Each one of these different scenarios can have meaning in our life. In this article, we will discuss house dreams and house dream scenarios. We will also review house dream meanings and what they can suggest to your waking life. In the end, we hope to lead you in the right direction so you can possibly determine what your house dream represents to you.

The house is a symbol that is known all across the world. Our house is very important to us. In fact, many of us don't even realize such importance. Most importantly, our house is our shelter. Our house contains a variety of different rooms. Each one of these rooms can represent meaning to our life. In your dream, the house is yourself. Each room is considered to be a different aspect of your waking life. Each room can be traits and characteristics of yourself.


If you had a dream about a house, it is very important to try to remember as much detail about the dream as possible. Our house dream can hold a variety of different symbols and elements. These symbols may also hold meaning to our dreams. It is equally important to remember how you felt in your house dream as well. Were you happy, sad, mad, or anxious? What emotions were you feeling when you dreamed about a house? The emotions that you felt in your house dream can be the same emotions that your dream represents to your waking life. As you may or may not know, our dreams can hold a variety of different emotions.

There are a variety of different scenarios that we can have when dreaming about a house. One common house dream is dreaming about our childhood home. This type of house dream may represent feelings and emotions from our childhood. It can also represent aspects of your childhood. Dreaming about your childhood home may also symbolize the need to connect with your family.

As you read above, each room can represent different emotions in your waking life. As you know, houses can hold a variety of different rooms, such as bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, basements, and attics. If you dreamed about being in the attic, this can represent past emotions that have been hidden for some time. It may be a past aspect of yourself as well. Your house dream may be suggesting that it is time to bring back this quality. Remember, we store items in the attic for later use.

If you have a dream about a bedroom in the house, this may portray your private emotions and experiences. This type of house dream may symbolize the need for more intimacy in your waking life. Dreaming about a bedroom can also represent your private thoughts. The bedroom is a sure symbol of privacy. This dream may suggest the need to keep things private as well as your emotions.

There are various interpretations when it comes to dreams about the bathroom. Some experts believe that the bathroom is a symbol of renewal and regeneration. This is because the bathroom has an association to water. Others believe that dreaming of a bathroom can represent emotional relief and relaxation. Your dream may be suggesting that it is time for a break from the everyday grind.

If you had a dream about hallways, this dream can represent aspects of our life journey. Remember, the house in your dream is you. Everything inside it is your thoughts, feelings, emotions, conscious, and subconscious. Hallways are passages from one room to the next. Each room is your emotions. Each room is different as you can represent different emotions. How did you feel when you were walking down the hallway? How you felt can be a reflection of that specific emotion as it pertains to you in your waking life.


The way the house looked can also represent meaning in your waking life. Can you remember what the house looked like? Was it clean or was it dirty? Was it new or was it old? Was the house falling apart. Was the house on fire? Was it flooding? Each one of these scenarios can represent different meanings.

If you dreamed that the house was completely empty, this may suggest that you are feeling vulnerable. This type of house dream points at your insecurities in your waking life. Your house dream may be representing your insecurities about yourself or your insecurities about a certain situation. This house dream can also symbolize that you have a low self-esteem and very little confidence.

If you dream about a clean house, this can represent very positive meanings. Dreaming of a clean house may represent that your life is in order and you have control over your emotions. Your life may be going as planned. Feelings of joy, happiness, and success are not uncommon in this type of house dream.

Dreams about a house that is run down can pertain to past emotions. This type of house dream may symbolize past aspects of ourselves as well. Your dream may be trying to tell you to bring out these old emotions and beliefs. Dreaming about a run down house points back to the way we use to live.

If you dream about a new house, this can symbolize new beginnings in your waking life. This house dream can also depict new opportunities also. This dream may point to the fact that change is needed in your waking life. It is possible that your life isn't going as planned. This dream can be brought on by a variety of different situations. You may have found a new job or possibly a new relationship. Either way, a new start may be on the horizon.

If you have a dream about your house being broken into, this can suggest that you are feeling vulnerable and violated. You have felt similar issues if you have ever been a victim of such a circumstance. Once again, this can point to several different situations in your life. You may feel betrayed and used. This may be due to a relationship or other circumstance.

Dreaming about a house fire represents that something in your waking life needs immediate attention. This type of house dream can point to any type of situation that would need your attention. You may have someone dealing with an illness or you may have a very crucial family emergency that needs defused. Just as if you were putting out a fire, the situation needs put out and resolved as soon as possible.

If you dream about a house being flooded, this may symbolize that your emotions are off the chart. No matter the situation, you are overwhelmed by your emotions. You may feel that you have lost all control in your waking life. Such a whirlwind of emotions can lead to anxiety and depression. Get your focus back and clear your mind. Once you are settled, resolve the issues that need your attention.

      @Faith, thanks for the comment and everything in between:) I'm always very appreciative Faith, many blessings dear friend:)

      @Frank, certainly! Dream interpretation sparks my interest, not only in symbolism, but learning if dreams are a warning or how dreams can be perceived.

      @Rajan, thanks for everything. House dreams are really complex in their interpretation. Think about it, everything that are house is. Our house is a symbol of our life, a symbol of protection, comfort, ect. Even every room can have specific meaning pointing back to your waking life.

      Very interesting read. Though I was aware that dreams had a meaning I never thought a single dream could had so many different interpretations depending on the different locations within the same premises.

      Voted up and shared.
