thoughts and hopes. One cluttered with antiques may reveal someone whose thoughts are too focused on the past.

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

To see an attic in your dream represents past memories and experiences. It can also highlight family patterns of behavior and attitudes that have been handed down to you. To see a cluttered attic is a sign urging you to organize your mind and thoughts, but an overly neat and tidy attic may suggest an approach to life that is too formal and timid. Ghosts in the attic represent memories that haunt you, whilst a jumble of unused clothes and equipment reflects unused energy. In some cases, particularly those in which your dream attic is radiant and heavenly, your attic may represent your higher self but in general, such dreams refer to stored material. Whatever your dream attic contains, consider it a clue to making your present circumstances more rewarding.


In dreams, the backyard represents the parts of your life that are taken for granted, the parts that are so familiar you have forgotten they are there.

If you dream of something pleasant in your backyard, this represents hidden potential waiting to be used without needing much effort; but if something ugly is present, this suggests an intrusive energy in your home life that may be draining you. See also Garden entry inPLACES.
