Dream - House and Rooms Part 1


Have you ever wondered what dreaming about an attic, balcony, basement, bathroom or bedroom mean?

To dream of a house refers to various aspects of the Self, and the rooms in a house relate to facets of the personality.

An attic represents hidden memories or repressed thoughts that are being revealed. It also symbolizes your mind, spirituality, and your connection to the higher Self. To see a cluttered attic in your dream is a sign to organize your mind and thoughts. Perhaps, you need to rid yourself of the past and let go of the past emotions that are holding you back.    

A balcony refers to your desire to be seen and noticed. You may be searching for prestige and higher status. It may also mean that you are on your way up the social ladder. If the balcony is clean it indicates that you are looked up to by others. If the balcony is old then it suggests that your public image is in need of repair. 

A basement symbolizes your unconscious mind and intuition. The appearance of the basement is an indication of your unconscious state of mind and level of satisfaction. It represents primal urges, animalistic desires and basic needs. There may be things that you have ‘stored’ away because you do not know what to do with them, but now need to attend to them.

A bathroom relates to your instinctual urges. You may be experiencing some burdens / feelings and need to ‘relieve yourself’. Alternatively, a bathroom symbolizes purification and self-renewal. You need to cleanse yourself, both emotionally and psychologically. To dream that you cannot find the bathroom signifies you are having difficulties in releasing and expressing your emotions. 

A bedroom signifies aspects of yourself that you keep private and hidden. It is also indicative of your sexual nature and intimate relations. To dream of a closet, especially if it is in your bedroom, symbolises something in your life that you have kept hidden. It may also signify an unveiling of previously hidden aspects of yourself, ‘coming out of the closet’.
