Dream Interpretation Home | Dream Meanings
Dreams about houses and homes usually symbolize your emotional and psychological self or center, in other words yourself.
Dream homes say very little about your real-life residence; instead, they say a great deal about your present circumstances, your perspective on life and the challenges you are currently facing. According to Jung, all of your experiences, stages of development, and parts of your conscious and unconscious life may be represented by dream homes. When trying to analyze the house in your dream, consider how it is kept and its condition, color and shape. The rooms in the house relate to facets of your personality and experience. Many people are amazed at the detail of their dream home. From the wallpaper patterns to the position of the dining room table, every detail seems planned and almost familiar, even though it may bear little or no resemblance to their real-life home. So when a dream shows you living in a particular home or setting, your dreaming mind is letting you know this is where you are coming from right now and this is how things are affecting you.
Dreams of being at home also suggest returning to a place in which you feel safe, a sanctuary where you can be yourself without fear of reprisal. Spiritualists speak of going home when they are approaching death, as they believe the physical state is a temporary one. See alsoBUILDINGS.
Your Dream House
If the house that featured in your dream was your actual home and some aspect of it was highlighted, you need to decide whether your dream was literal (if you were clearing out a cupboard, is this on your to do‘ list?) or whether it relates to some aspect of yourself (could the same dream be telling you to sort things through and reassess your priorities?). The foundations of the house symbolize the basic attitudes and processes upon which your life is built.
If your dream house represents yourself, what did your dream tell you about your foundations and structure? Were they sturdy and able to withstand bad conditions, or were they in danger of collapsing?
If your home is damaged in your dream, first consider whether you are worried about the condition of your home in real life; if you find that you are not worried about it all as you have just had a positive surveyor’s report, then consider the dream’s symbolic meaning.
If the walls or fences were damaged, this would allow outside elements to get through, so perhaps you feel vulnerable or undermined in waking life. Broken doors also indicate vulnerability and an inability to maintain boundaries. Broken windows leave you open to intruders and may affect your view of things.
Houses in dreams often represent parts of your mind or personality, so if you dream of leaving your current home to live in another house, this simply reflects your awareness of different parts of your personality. Maybe you have been moving from one part of yourself to another, trying out different aspects of yourself? Maybe you are trying to decide who you really are? To dream that your house is broken into suggests that you are feeling violated. It may refer to a particular relationship or current situation in your life. Alternatively, it indicates that some unconscious material is attempting to make itself known, because some aspects of yourself have been denied.
If your dream home is burgled, this may symbolize something you valued that has been taken away from you, leaving you feeling violated. Are you taking care of all of your valuables in your life, including yourself? Is someone trying to breach your personal defenses?
If your dream featured a general atmosphere of homelife, it predicts small satisfactions and an adjustment to whatever your circumstances might be.

Spiritually, home always represents sanctuary – a place where we can feel safe and be ourselves without fear of reprisal. Literally, in dreams we are inside ourselves and home signifies this spiritual state. Spiritualists and those who believe in an afterlife often speak of death as ‘going home’, but this should not be seen as a precognitive dream.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Dreaming of a safe environment such as our own home, or sometimes a parental one, suggests that we have the opportunity to integrate learned behaviour with primary personality traits – those qualities with which we are born.
Material aspects: The human being’s primary needs of shelter, warmth and nourishment are initially met (or not) within the home, so a dream about a home on a mundane level suggests a known environment or set of standards – comfortable or otherwise.

Your home may contain the concerns about family affairs. Since “home is where the heart is,” being in your home in a dream reflects a sense of secunty and comfort.

• First floor: The first floor of your home as a setting in your dream may reflect pnmary concerns that are essential to your happiness: your family, your social relationships, your safety.
If the first floor is a mess, there may be a messy situation within your family that is troubling you.
If you are remodeling the first floor, this may reflect change’s you are making in your attitude and behavior toward family and friends. In terms of your physical body, the first floor may reflect a concern lor your overall physical well-being.
• Second floor: Often the bedrooms are on the second floor of a home, and the appearance of a bedroom may reflect your concerns about intimate relationships and sexual fulfillment. Finding yourself on the second floor of someone else’s house may suggest that you are snooping into his or her personal business.
Example: ‘I was sitting in the living room at home and my mum was sitting there like we do when we’re relaxing in the evening. From nowhere in particular my dad was there. He held his girlfriend in his arms and displayed her in front of us. She was stark naked. My mum tensed up, tightened her lips, and tried to look away. I felt acutely embarrassed for me, mum, dad and his girlfriend’ (Lynsay S).
Generally, one’s basic needs such as shelter, warmth, nourishment—but usually in the sense of what we have created as our basic way of life; the values, standards, goals we have accepted as normal, or are ‘at home’ with; as in the example, the situation or state in our home, which here means family atmosphere.
Example: ‘I am walking down a busy street when I realise that all I have on are my bra and pants. Everyone is staring at me and I try to appear unconcerned but feel more and more embarrassed as I go on. Eventually the street and the people fade and I am alone in my own home and a great sensation of relief comes over me. I do not bother to put any more clothes on but wander about the house secure in the comfort people are no longer looking at me’ (Mrs S C). Here home is the sense of being oneself, or absence of concern over other people’s criticism.
In a past home: depicts the part of our character or experience which developed in that home environment. Someone else’s home: what we sense as the attitudes and atmosphere or the situation prevailing in that home. So a young woman going to the home of her lover and his wife shows her facing the fact of her lover’s home and commitment in marnage. Future home: The direction you would like your life to take, or fear it might. See house below in this entry.
