Dream Question: why am I dreaming of an old house?

Dream Question: why am I dreaming about a house I grew up in?

Delphi’s reply:

Houses in dreams often symbolise what’s happening for us, outside and in. How the house is built and how it looks can all represent what we show to the world around us, friends and family included. If the house is tidy and looking good, this suggests you want people to think the same of you.

What’s going on inside the house can reveal how you really feel. So, if the house is run down, that might be how you feel when you’re awake. 

If you’re looking for somewhere to live, this would be an obvious explanation. If you don’t recognise the house in your dream and are nervous about going inside, it maybe you’re covering new ground in your life and may need to explore your feelings or options further, but are nervous about doing so. 

Houses can represent your situation at the time of the dream,  but also echo moments from the past.  Dreaming of an old house may mean that something about your current situation is reminding you of your past, or that there are areas of your past that may need to be explored to help you move forward. 

Houses can represent your situation at the time of the dream, but also echo moments from the past.

Take some time to talk this through with someone helpful if you feel you need to explore the past. You may find keeping a dream diary useful, so you can spot patterns in your dreaming.
