Room Dream Meaning: From 20 Different Sources

(1) A room may represent the self, or some aspect of yourself.

(2) It may be a symbol of the womb. Freud tells of a dream in which a girl (the dreamer) entered a room six or eight times and every time saw her father sitting there. Freud saw the dream as expressing the girl’s fantasy of having seen her father come into her mother’s womb while the girl was still a foetus.

(3) If the room is a cellar or basement, it may symbolize vour unconscious.

If it is a room at or near the top of a high building, it may represent consciousness; idealism; loftv aspirations. (But of course an upstairs room may nevertheless symbolize libido, instinctive life and desires: for example, if it is a bedroom where sexual activity is taking place.)

(4) A suite of rooms may express a male dreamer’s polvgamous sexual desires. This docs not mean he is polygamous in real life. On the contrary, he might well be shocked bv the dream. What such a dream exemplifies is the way the unconscious compensates or balances the conscious self: a polygamous person might have monogamous dreams!

The ‘containing’ quality of a room may also depict involvement in one’s mother. Finding extra rooms: a common dream theme—rec­ognition or discovery of previously unnoticed aspects, abili­ties, fears, or traits in oneself. Example: There was a room in my house I had never been in before. It was filled with water and had three kittens submerged in it. While in the room I didn’t need to breathe’ (Audrey P).

The room here represents Audrey’s childbearing function—her womb.

The room can therefore depict mother or qualities of mothering.

The room is a symbol of individuality, of personal thought. Each type represents the aspects of our mind and being. The living room is the conscious; the basement or root cellar, the unconscious; the upstairs bedrooms, the spiritual aspirations of the dreamer. It’s meaning depends on the state in which you find the room.

If it has windows, it symbolizes the possibility of communication with the exterior. On the contrary, a closed room without windows can symbolize virginity or lack of communication. In oneiric terms, there are also established equivalencies between the room and the physical body, so you must analyze the environment in the room.

A pleasant room augurs well-being and serenity; if it lacks openness, it reflects isolation, fears, and insecurity. (See HOUSE)
