The roof is the top of a building; in this way it connects to the mind and thoughts in the consciousness that the building represents.

If the roof is not in good shape, then elements from the outside will get in in a way that can be damaging.

If this is the case, you may feel that you are not protected from the thoughts of other people interfering with your own ideas about things.

If you are standing on the roof in a dream, you desire to get a higher vantage point by connecting to the highest level of thoughts you can have about a situation. This higher vantage point is a powerful place to be, but it also puts you in the position of being able to fall off, so a dream about falling from a roof connects to the risk associated with having vision.

If the roof is in disrepair, your thoughts are not in alignment or are out of integrity.

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. The image of a dream chimney is, in addition, laden with sexuality, male and female, depending on whether the chimney is viewed from the outside or from the inside.... roof / ceiling / chimney dream meaning
