The look of the basement may provide you with clues about your current feelings and state of contentment.
If the basement is a mess, and you see great disorder and clutter, it suggests that you may be experiencing confusion and that it is a very good time to sort things out emotionally and psychologically. At times, the activities which are going on in the basement of your dream may be based on past experiences or childhood memories. As with all dreams, their main purpose seems to be to bring the dreamer to higher consciousness so that he may deal with his current issues more effectively, rather than to dwell on the past.

Buildings represent the personality of the dreamer, and the basement, equally as with other underground spaces, is a symbol of the interior of the body, the deepest levels of the mind.
