What does it mean to see an home in a dream?

Home Dream Meaning: From 24 Different Sources


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. Idioms: bring something home to someone, close to home; come home to roost; home and dry; broken home; home truth; home is where the heart is.

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences | Tony Crisp


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. Wandering through the rooms of the home where you grew up may signify the need to explore the patterns of belief that influenced your personality in order to heal old wounds.

• 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.

Ariadne's Book of Dream | Ariadne Green


İf different in appearance, look up each change; figuratively represents one’s body; see “landlord”

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton


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.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous


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.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous


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.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous


To enhance the interpretation of the dream consult the entries for house in buildings and this section, parent in family and shelter.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous


Home often refers to security, basic needs, and strong rooted values.

It is a very special and private place.

To dream of your childhood home and its memories indicates a desire to build a family. It may also reveal some aspects of your personality which were developed while you lived there. Going back to your old home or even visiting it in your dream can bring back old feelings that seem to be buried in the past. Dreams about being unable to find your home reflects a loss of faith and can point to a huge transition taking place in your present life.

Dream Symbols and Analysis | DreamForth


Independence and dependency mark the feelings of going home. Home also represents security issues and childlike desires that need to be fulfilled. (See also Mansion).

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver


To dream of home-life in early boyhood indicates good health and prosperity. Good sign of progress.

Indian Interpretation of Dreams | Indian - Anonymous


The known built home, if it was linked with the time / era, then it is [interpreted as] a worldly affliction in proportion to its fineness of quality.

If it was made from adobe [brick], and / or mud then it is halal.

And it is interpreted upon 8 sides: woman & spouse & wealth, peace & pleasantness / perfume & living & wealth, Guardianship & glory & high standing, a trust.

Islamic Dream - Cafer-i Sadik | Cafer-i Sadik

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards


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

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung


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?

Childhood Home / Home From The Past

If your childhood home or a home from the past continually features in your dreams, this does not necessarily mean you are stuck in the past or long to return to the security of childhood. The homes in which you once lived can become symbols of certain factors that shaped the person you have now become. Perhaps the most common past home dream is that of living in the house you lived in when you were a child. There may be major changes to the structure of the house, there may be people there that you hadn’t met when you lived there, but you know that house more intimately than any other. It is a true reflection of yourself and the storehouse for all your emotions, both positive and negative. The house in which you grew up always has a huge influence on your psychology. Your house gives you boundaries and it is the place where you go to feel safe, its every corner a reflection of your mind. It is the symbol of your family, connections and traditions.

Your dream childhood home can help give you clues about your current situation and help you examine your personality. What kind of house was it? Was it a large or small house, and did you think it was the same size when you were young? Are you still living in the same house? How many floors did it have? How many windows? What was its shape? Most of us live in square houses with corners, but some people’s houses are round with no corners. Some suggest this may have a profound effect on a person’s psychology because circles represent infinity and thus no restrictions. Can you remember what colors your house was painted in; how do those colors affect your feelings now? If something good always happened to you in a certain room, the color of that room may still make you happy for the rest of your life. Was there a place in your house where you went if you were miserable, or a place where something bad happened? What were the colors and shapes that were involved? Is it a dark place or a light place?

Although you are by no means doomed to repeat past mistakes, your dreaming mind may use your first home as an important reference throughout your life and you may often find yourself trying to work through current issues in the setting of this childhood home. Try to think of such dreams as an opportunity to reflect on your basic beliefs about home and family. Are you repeating patterns from your childhood in a current relationship and situation? Can your dream help you relate the past to your present life and to your life in the future?... childhood home / home from the past dream meaning

Home Improvement / Housework

If your dream hasn’t been triggered by a television home makeover show, making improvements to your home may symbolize making improvements to yourself. Are there any jobs that you feel need to be done right now? Could you do with a coat of paint to brighten yourself up with a fresh new color? If you dream of building an extension, do you want or need to expand your horizons? Putting on a new roof may relate to raising your expectations, whilst applying a coat of varnish or paint can suggest a desire to disguise your own self-perceived flaws. It can also indicate the desire to gloss over problems in a relationship.

Whitewash may represent your attempts to cover up something that causes you embarrassment, whether relating to your own feelings of guilt or your suspicion that others are not what they seem. Clearing or laying down new paths or foundations may relate to new approaches to life.

If household breakages feature in your dream this may represent flawed ideas. A cracked cup can symbolize lost love. A dream of breaking things in the house may suggest anger or despair.

Dreams of housework in general suggest keeping your internal house in order, perhaps by taking time to clarify or define motives, opinions and feelings about others; they also stand for the cleaning out of non-functional or negative attitudes, thoughts and experiences. To dream that you are cleaning your house with a broom or dustpan and brush signifies your need to clear out your thoughts and get rid of old ways. You are seeking self-improvement.

If you, or a cleaner, are cleaning, this may also recall memories of your mother. Alternatively, the house being cleaned may symbolize the self and a need to give extra care and attention to neglected aspects of your personality.

When compared with sweeping up, vacuum cleaning suggests both a definite desire to do away once and for all with the effects of a past action, and a definite desire to move on and put the past behind you.

To dream of cleaning windows suggests that you are trying to get a clearer view of the world around you. Using a washing machine may suggest it is time to confront old issues that are destroying your peace of mind. The water may also point to deep-seated childhood issues that need to come out in the wash. Hanging your clothes out to dry may suggest a yearning for the lost innocence of childhood or a desire for uninhibited sexuality.

If you are washing the dishes in your dream kitchen, this may suggest a desire to wash away feelings of shame or disgust, or a wish to deny responsibility for something.... home improvement / housework dream meaning

Homesickness / Nostalgia

Dreams from which you wake up with a sense of unhappiness, regret and nostalgia for the past occur for two reasons. The first is to compensate for unhappiness in your present circumstances by reminding you of past happiness and the possibility of enjoying that kind of happiness again. The second is to help you come to face up to painful memories and come to terms with the past.

If you were awash with homesickness in your dream, try to pinpoint exactly what it was that you were missing. The answer may tell you what your unconscious has identified as lacking in your real life. Perhaps it was a sense of belonging, a sense of fun or childhood innocence and spontaneity.... homesickness / nostalgia dream meaning
