In the dream, the ceiling is either falling on top of you, creating a feeling of being confined or crushed, or the ceiling is immensely high and you are trying to stretch out in order to reach it. In one case, more intellectual effort is called for; in the other, you are overextending yourself intellectually.

Roof / Ceiling / Chimney

A roof symbolizes protection, security, shelter in general, or the family home under which you find shelter and comfort. Consider the state of your roof—is it in good condition, weatherproof and complete, or is it in need of repair? If the latter, do you need to think something through more carefully? In architecture, particularly in churches and temples, the roof symbolizes the dome of heaven, so if a leaky roof features in your dream, one interpretation might be that an awareness of your unconscious is slowly making itself known to you. Typically, leaky roofs in dreams warn that the very structure of your life is on the verge of collapsing on top of you unless changes are made in your waking life. To see a roof is also an overview of how you see yourself and who you think you are.

To dream that you are on a roof symbolizes excitement and creativity. To dream that you are falling off a roof signifies that you may not have a firm grip and solid foundation on your advanced position. Consider also the expression‘to hit the roof, which means you have become enraged. Are you angry at the moment? To have a slate missing means to be a little slow, so are you missing the point of something? To see a ceiling in your dream represents your mental or spiritual perspective.

Chimneys in dreams generally symbolize warmth, tradition and family values. The condition of the chimney reflects how we deal with our inner emotions and warmth.

If your dream contained a smoking chimney, its smoke signal imparts a message of emotional warmth.
