Dreaming of a house

Dreaming of a house can represent life in general or the mind.

I found a connection and pattern with regular houses that were the stage in my dreams and they are listed below. In regards to my childhood home symbolising ‘life path’, this may be because I was fortunate to live in this home until I left home.

If you have a regular house that you used to live in reappear in different dreams frequently, consider that that house could be symbolising your life path. The significance of why that house continues to be the stage in your dreams, maybe because it was the first home you owned or you lived there for a long time. Try using a few dreams where the same house is the stage to find a theme.

Your house alludes to your life and mind. This is where you know within the dream it is your house.

The current house you live in alludes to a present situation.

Your childhood house alludes to your life path and lessons.

A previous house you lived in alludes to that time in your life, look at the different angles of what you associate with that time in your life to find what fits, you can use a couple of dreams where this place is the stage to connect the dots and once you have identified what it symbolises, it will most likely symbolise the same thing in future dreams.

A house in which you frequently dream of may be symbolising your ‘life path’, and the suburb may be symbolising your ‘life lessons’.

Another person’s house alludes to their life or what they represent (characteristic, quality, etc).

Rental house alludes to you not owning something, an aspect that is not permanent or less/no responsibility. This is where you knew within the dream the house was a rental.

Dreaming of rooms inside of a house

Each room of a house symbolises the different ways that they are used, their functionality and the reason that you use the room, for example, a toilet can symbolise ‘elimination’.

Garage alludes to storage or the movement along your path.

What have you been storing that is being explored within your dream? For example, I dreamt of a fire (emotions) in the garage which was showing me that some stored thoughts I had were damaging me.

Because garages are used to put and keep the car in, the symbolism of your movement along your path is fitting. When I dream of my childhood home (life path and progression) and the scene is in the garage, it relates to either stored aspects along my path or the movement along my path. The latter could be about how my path is stationary because of this matter that the dream is about or where I am keeping myself along my path.

Whoever owns the house or the type of house (rental, etc), will add to what is governing the matter and the condition of it will show you the state of the matter and if it is a positive or negative angle.
