House Dream Meaning

Dreams about houses

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

In dream psychology, “houses” are related to our own psyche.

A house represents the temple of the mind a reflection of our mental state. The house is a reminder to look after yourself and that you need to think about the exterior of your life. An empty house means missed opportunities. The upper floors can imply your own mind and brain. The middle floors the chest, the first floor indicates your digestive system, and the ground floor your legs and feet.

Are dreams about houses good or bad?

Dreams about houses are generally positive dream omens, they can include many things, it could be a past house, new house, moving house, purchasing a house or even just a house that you have never been in before. There is a question that is often left with you after waking “what does the house mean!” I have experienced dreams of houses throughout my life.  Dreams about houses are extremely common. The truth is, everyone has a house dream every now and then. In dream lore, the house represents our internal thoughts. Every room is associated with how we are “feeling.” The housing dream might range from a frightening experience to an inspiring or enlightening dream. This is due to the fact that houses are a part of our everyday life.

Is this a future premonition of a house move?

I remember when I was about 10 years old I had a dream of a house. About a year later we moved into that house. I must say, as I have got older (in my forties) I rarely now dream of houses I am going to live in. I last had a dream about a house 6 months ago, I dreamed of a detached house by a river with flats in the back garden. Later that month, I visited a friend and saw that house. The reason why I mention this is because at times the house in your dream could predict a house you may live in. Houses and rooms in dreams can appear in many ways and have different meanings.

What is the spiritual meaning of a house in a dream?

A house in a dream can symbolize infinite spiritual possibilities. To dream of your own house reflects your desire to spiritually move, buy a new house, or take on a new project that will encourage you to use your spiritual imagination to manifest your desires. However, this dream also reflects your internal unconscious experiences. Ask yourself how you felt during the dream. What caused you to feel that way? By doing this you can’t interpret your dream and enrich your knowledge. Don’t just focus on one dream symbol but explore the entire house, your emotional state, and experiences you’ve had while dreaming. 

What is the dream symbol of a house?

When you dream about houses, it is symbolic of your “spiritual self” houses are a representation of you and your life. I like to think that dreams about houses generally mean that no matter what happens in life try to look after “you.” No matter what other circumstances and imagery will present in the dream, a house is the representation of the expression of the unconscious of your sense of personal identity. Whatever the dwelling, whether a hotel room, an apartment, grass hut, a trailer, or any other type of house.

What do the parts of the house mean to your life?

How you perceive the house view in your dream matters greatly. I have touched on this previously, but let's be sure of the dream meaning understanding. This relates to your life path. The back of the house is the hidden or private part of your life. The front of the house connects to the persona, what you display to the world around you. What is in your house in the dream is a representation of various, compartments aspects of life. Alternatively, the dream of alternate angles or side views, it could mean that your connection to the world is limited, inaccurate, or partial. Consider what emotions are evoked when you see the house in your dream and what comes up when comparing it to your home in your waking life.

Dreaming of your own house

The house itself as I've already mentioned is an avenue for your subconscious mind it represents the self. The ground floor represents how you're perceived by others, the kitchen is connected to our own creativity and the bedrooms are where we want to keep things to ourselves. There is a distinction between the bathroom and toilet where we desire privacy. The loft or roof is our conscious mind which is exposed to other people.

There was much work from Carl Jung about the symbolism of seeing our own house in a dream. If in your own house the rooms were different or unexplored this could signify that there are areas of your life where you need to compartmentalize. The dream foretells that your reputation may be threatened if the house dream is adverse in any way. Dreaming of something trying to get into your house (could be zombies, murderers, water) indicates emotions are high and you are trying to run away from something in waking life. 

Sometimes we prefer to keep our ideas or fantasies only to be accessed through the dream world, it is like a traveler who enjoys travel but doesn't want to arrive anywhere, for to arrive is to finish and to have done all that we are bored to do. In dreams, we want to bring back loss. Or suppose a prefectural we hold onto some projection of what we think life should be. If we experience in a dream house patterns, furniture, structures or even emptiness of our own home in waking life - this is directly connected to our comfort levels. 

Bodies become vulnerable to forces that are external which is one of the reasons people dream about being in their own house. If you picture your own house as your human existence, it is easy to see that if any danger is apparent in the dream this could be your subconscious mind feeling threatened. Remember, the house itself is you. The body has five limbs and five senses. Simply speaking, these senses act in a conscious way. To dream of outside your house, or looking out of the window in a dream can suggest that you are trying to protect yourself against outside forces. 

Dreaming about your old house

We have all had dreams about a childhood house, or a home that you lived in the past. This dream can indicate that you are having feelings of the past. An old house seen in a dream is quite a positive omen it is like a bridge that connects us to a new horizon. There can be fulfilled if the old house was in good shape. This can imply that you will think about actions that you have set yourself. 

If you dream of a previous home earlier in your life it doesn't necessarily mean that you are focused on the past. It can mean you want to think about the future and remove any past problems or experiences. Dreaming of previous homes we have lived in often becomes symbolism is for various factors in our current daily lives. Dreaming of homes from the past can also show that at times you may respond to issues in your daily life that are being pushed away. Think about your feelings of when you lived in that previous property. Often we have this internal tendency to try to discount our own emotional feelings. The most common past home that we dream of is our childhood residence. This is a natural dream to happen, it can indicate that we need to feel safe in our waking life. Consider the dream as an opportunity for spiritual guidance the roots of the previous house are not only limited to the physical side but also the roots of our past memories and soul is embedded in our childhood home. 

Each individual person can temporarily manifest their expression of childhood through viewing their past home. If you had a happy childhood and this can mean that you would like to revisit those fun times again. The question here you have fun in daily life? If you dream of a past home that you no longer own, maybe you can see yourself living in that property once more. This type of dream is often connected to the feelings that are resurfacing from the past. If for example, you had a difficult divorce or separation you lived in that house with a previous partner it can often represent that you are feeling a lack of disconnection in your love life. This is just an example of how past houses can prompt us to think about ways of how we focus our style of life. If the house was a property you bought alone when you were younger it can indicate that you have felt in the past that you must focus on. What is holding you back in life?

Dreams of an unfamiliar house

To see yourself staying at a house you do not know in waking life can often indicate your own internal status in life. This is a positive dream and indicates you are going to surround yourself with new friends and acquaintances. The larger the house the more positive the dream. To see yourself in a room during the dream, and you don't recognize this in daily life can signify your desire for expressing yourself towards others.

If the unfamilar house was your home but you do not recognize this is the dream state it could suggest there will be problems in your family life. Switching homes in the dream state and for something to present itself (that you are not aware of in waking life) could often be connected to different dimensions. An unfamiliar house that you do not own featured in a dream can suggest that other people will turn to you for advice. It is about giving others the time needed if they are going through an emotional problem. There is also a danger of trouble and threaten the loss of reputation to dream of danger in an unfamiliar house. If something was trying to get into the house that was adverse it can mean you are not settled where you are living. Perhaps you are worried about paying the mortgage, or a financial situation in regards to the house?

Dream about someone else's house

To dream of being in somebody else's house can often symbolize people around you. Some dream characters have no resemblance to anybody we know in waking life. Any character featured in your dream needs to be analyzed. If you dreamt of being in somebody's house that you do not know them, then this can suggest the character is an intrapsychic symbol. What this means is that it does not represent anybody in waking life but actually represents yourself. Therefore, to dream of somebody else's house that you do not know can be interpreted as your own house in the dream. 

If you dream of somebody else's house such as a friend's house or family members can indicate that there are certain qualities within yourself that those people within the dream can recognize. When you dream of your friend, child, parents, best friend, or co-workers house - these people are often called core connections and they only appear in our dreams when they are representing themselves. 

Therefore, if you find yourself in someone else's home during a dream it could be connected to the emotional and psychological attachment that you have to these people. Do you have a good relationship with these people? In moments of rivalry, we can sometimes dream of being in another person's house even if we do not know them that well. Do you trust them? 

The other aspect of the dream to be considered is if the finer details were negative in any aspect. If you do indeed dream of being in somebody else's house which is negative of nature represents (I once dreamed a friend threw a spider at me in her home) that a new start in that relationship is on the horizon. Dreaming of a house of an old boss or co-worker can represent career changes and new beginnings. If you find yourself in your parent's house then this can be connected to your past feelings in your childhood, which I have covered in my dream meaning on the old house above.

What’s the dream meaning of a house?

As I have already mentioned above, in health the house can represent parts of the body. So take note, of what you could see in the dream and the rooms.

  • Dreaming of your own house foretells that you are looking inward in order to understand yourself and your personality.
  • Dreaming of someone else's house indicates the relationships around you depending on whose house you found yourself inside.
  • To dream of a ruined house indicates your own personality and it is time to think about how you can become more relaxed and prepared for any situation with minimal anxiety.
  • To see a house on fire in a dream illustrates something that needs repair and points to poor health. To dream of a house denotes dissatisfaction in your “home” life. In older dream lore, this dream indicates a desire to start a new life or change something and represents “you.”
  • To dream that the house is chasing you means that you’re running away from something you’re carrying inside. If the house was flying or floating, it represents your hidden feelings. This dream means you are currently in the process of soul-searching. However, it can mean that you are struggling with feeling enlightened or aware. This dream means that you will have high expectations for yourself, even if everyone else expects nothing from you.
  • A luxurious house can represent your own ambitions and advancement to reach your goals. Watching a house collapse in a dream can indicate not reaching goals.
  • A balcony is connected to how people see us.
  • A glass house in a dream can be a reflection that things are going to succeed in the future.
  • To clean a house in a dream implies you wish to clean up your goals. Seeing cleaners cleaning a house represents a future that is bright
  • A bird in a house in a dream indicates that you are feeling trapped in life.
  • Water or floods inside a house indicates that you are feeling emotional about problems going forward.
  • A dusty house in a dream according to my older dream books indicates you are trying to cover up something important.
  • A water leak in a dream or a burst pipe can suggest that someone will provide some emotional complications going forward.
  • A house that is falling down or “falls” in a dream can indicate that something is not what it seems.
  • Moving house in a dream is a suggestion you will move from one phase to the next. Someone breaking into a house in a dream can indicate that you feel “threatened” in waking life.
  • To dream of a glass house can suggest that you are listening to gossip according to old dream lore. If the glass house is somewhere you are living it can mean that you will be reflecting negativity in life. Just like the glass everything will become clear.

What is the meaning of the specific size and condition of houses in dreams?

If you remember the size and condition of the house it might help you interpret your dream and understand its meaning better. Was the house in ruins or abandoned? Maybe neglected? If yes, perhaps, your dream is trying to warn you to take better care of yourself. Are you feeling neglected by someone? Or hurt because something has ended in waking life? In dream psychology, the house represents the “self” often the reflection of the house in your dream are your thoughts.

Regarding the size, if the house is too small to get into in your dream, it indicates how you feel about yourself. One can relate to the size of the house to feeling small and weak at the time. Often “smaller” houses in dreams indicate feel like there's not enough space for personal development and spiritual growth. To dream about a large house denotes how you feel inside. I do feel that large houses in dreams indicate that in time you will need to focus on “yourself” more. To dream of a larger house often symbolizes emptiness. But it all depends on how you felt about the house during your dream.

If you felt content and happy this dream means you’re satisfied with your personal growth and career achievements. But if you felt like there was something missing, it represents the emptiness you feel inside. If you dream of an abandoned or haunted house? it might reflect on how you feel at the moment – empty. Are you overwhelmed by emotions in your waking life but still can’t get rid of the numbness inside your heart? Are you a hypersensitive person who’s tired of being sick and tired? To dream of an old house means you need to focus on transformation. You should apply the changes in your life that you wanted for so long. When dreaming of an old and abandoned house, ask yourself: “Have I abandoned myself? What change will make me feel good about myself again?

A recurring dream of a house - the same house pops up over and over

To have these kind of dreams repeatedly indicates you are feeling unsettled in daily life. The dream itself is associated with your own softness and vulnerability. The dream of the same house urges you to think about how you can grow. Many different houses featured in the same dream can indicate you are confused about your self-identity and if you find yourself moving constantly to try to keep up with your busy lifestyle. A reoccurring dream of houses can be reflective of an opportunity to bring aspects of yourself back to life, we generally lose our creative talent after a time and this dream can be a reflection of what you have lost. If you are confused about where you're living in the dream means that you are frightened in life about change. It has come to your dream state to symbolise a reminder to stay with your quest, feed your freedom and return to the part of you that is authentic.

Dream meaning of a detached house

Over 70% of families in America reside in a detached house so it is not uncommon to dream about this type of house. A detached house featured in a dream can mean just that. You feel detached, and this represents our challenge is usually related to the achievement of some kind in life we seldom realize how hard we don't have to work until we get through a project. Then it's too late to reverse the situation.  The detached house could also be in a suburb, could be familiar to you alternatively mean you need to consider healthy living if you see greenery in the dream. 

As the house is detached it can suggest that you will start to understand what is motivating the people around you, and how they see various situations. Our dreams of homes always have little to do with our real-life residences, instead, they are a clue to our present circumstances and our emotions going forward. As I said before, the house is detached this is how you are feeling in real life. Perhaps detached from other people. If you live in a detached house in waking life then if you dream of your own house the fact it is detached has no real bearing on the dream interpretation. The dream is about your subconscious mind reminding you of your safety and making life. Your own property may symbolize a quality or characteristic you’re having to encounter in waking life. Seeing a house alone sometimes symbolizes the closest connection of others, particularly in regards to getting more understanding with some part of your own personality.

Dreams about a large house

Dreaming about a large house is often connected to our own space in life. Dreams like these are positive as it symbolizes your confidence. If you think about the house itself and how you are represented In the world this can give you a clue to the meaning. The larger the house the more positive the dream symbolism. It can indicate that you are trying to build your own life going forward. If you have had a productive day then you can quite often dream about large houses. Spiritually, this dream is connecting to your higher self. In life, we sometimes need to create space and meditate in order to guide ourselves into the spiritual realm. Clearing your mind in daily life will create a positive foundation to manifest your dreams and goals. If you dream of a mansion then this can predict happiness. In fortune-telling literature dreaming of a larger house is connected to our ambitions, positions, and power in life. If you are living in a mansion or large house in your dream then this can represent that you will be fulfilled in life. We often feel that we are not satisfied with certain things that occur and this is a dream omen that positivity will be yours. 

What does it mean to dream of a mansion?

This dream meaning is similar to the above. A mansion though is quite grand. I kept having a dream of a mansion. This had a library and piano. The house in dreams symbolizes your current mental state and your self-image. Seeing or being inside a castle or mansion symbolizes your endurance and determination. The moment you decide to realize your dreams will be the moment you start a new life.

Dream of trying to find your house

If you are searching for your house and cannot find it this represents your own persona. It can indicate you are feeling lost in life, when we think about the house it represents our self soul. Being absent from the house that we know exists is connected to our organic brain changes during sleep. This is often demonstrated and if we are feeling a loss in any way it could be associated with feeling overemotional in waking life. It has been abundantly demonstrated by dream psychiatrists that if we are looking for something to dream then this could be related to our own judgement or internal thoughts about our abilities.

Dreams of being unable to find a house could be connected to the fact that you’re feeling unprepared in waking life. Try to think about what feelings and emotions experienced in dreams. Some symbols up in the dream give you a clue. If you finally do find your dream this is a more positive interpretation. It can mean that some of the emotions your feeling will be redirected so you will not be judged by others but finding the house mean you will understand your own emotions that you are feeling at the moment. If you find you cannot find your keys or get into your house in a dream indicates you may have battled with authority figures in life, or felt like an outsider these are all traits of having a dream of searching for something connected to yourself.

What does do dream about a house fire mean?

Dreams about a house fire can represent that you are feeling areas of your life not as a sea. It can be quite a worrying dream but it is common to see your house burning down. The flames spiritually connected to protection and purification. If you set your own house on fire it indicates you wish to change. Seeing a house on fire that you do not know in real life suggests that you are content with your life you are suffering from a lack of energy. To be inside your house when it is on fire, in a dream, indicates that there is something that you need to take note of immediately. If firefighters entered the home in a dream it can suggest you are going to be rescued by a hero. If you escape the house fire it can suggest that you are on the road to a better future. The biblical meaning of a house on fire can represent cleansing as well as destruction. If we turn to dream psychology, Sigmund Freud believed that fire is connected to our thoughts and desires in life and that you need to review these. The home as I already mentioned is a representation of the "self." So, bringing this together the dream about a house fire can indicate that you need to start something fresh in connection to work.

What is the Islamic interpretation of a house in a dream?

Many of you have contacted me about the Islamic meaning of a house dream so I have carried out some research to find out the meaning. The Islamic interpretation of seeing or buying a new house in a dream is associated with abundance and progress. You will experience success on both personal and professional levels. Houses in dreams also represent how you see yourself. To get the right interpretation, you must pay attention to details such as the color, the size, and the type of house. If you dreamed of the front of a house like a front door or porch, it represents the part you’re showing to the world. It can imply that you are pretending to be something you’re not and people see you as mysterious and calm. However, if you dream of the back of a house, it denotes the secrets and emotions you’re trying to keep to yourself. If the house was brand new in your dream, it also represents some new beginnings and expanding your horizons. To move into a brand new home indicates transformations on a personal level. The new house also reveals your wish to change or upgrade your life.

Dream of destroying a house

To destroy property or house in your dream indicates your internal ability to completely transform your viewpoint on the situation without it becoming too much of a burden to you. The house essentially is the way that you are thinking. For the house to be destroyed means breaking down barriers in life in order to start afresh. If you have been in a situation where you have lost some creative thoughts due to feeling stressed in a dream of destroying a house is often common. If you are blowing the house up then this can point to an argument or a deeper understanding of the situation. To set a house on fire essentially means that you have the power to change all areas of your life, if you want of course. To find yourself destroying an unfamiliar house indicates you feel the need to protect yourself against remarks. If you are destroying somebody else's house then this can be connected to a situation where you choose to take direction. If something or someone destroyed your house in a dream - such as a person or natural disaster then this dream is about how you are going to control your plans and ideas going forward. It can signal opportunities to increase your chances for success, by taking a new approach in exercising perspective.

What does moving house mean in a dream?

What does moving house or seeing yourself in an “unknown house” in a dream mean? Houses in dreams is quite interesting. It can indicate the feeling of “moving” from one situation to another in a symbolic way. The dream could include many aspects of the house. A dream could feature: moving to a new house, moving into a new apartment, packing and moving, moving in with someone or even moving to a new city. The dream of “moving” does indicate a change. Changing one's way of thinking and the obstacles we find when going through life. Often, I have come across moving dreams like this that are related to changes in relationships with a partner. This can indicate either an argument or your subconscious telling you how to “deal with fears” in life.

House keys in dreams

Dream of losing keys to the house indicates that you are fighting difficulty to understand your true emotions at the moment. Naturally, dreams bring up a huge amount of strong emotions and images from past situations (where you felt perhaps he was being judged by other people often occur). The symbolism of your house keys during a dream can indicate that you are making good progress and will embrace a happier sense of well-being go forward. If you feel wiser and freer when you wake up then this is a positive sign. If you are finding it difficult to find the keys and this can indicate that you need to find something internally to build your resistance to change. To not find the keys means you need to work on your own self-confidence. To try to lock doors to a house but you can't indicate you are locking out your emotions. The house is yourself remember. To lock up your house in a dream can mean you want to escape others. If you dream of not being able to lock the doors of your house in a dream can signify that others are expressing concerns to you. Dreaming of open doors with keys in a dream can be a great spiritual omen. It means you are about to embark on a new beginning.

What is the dream meaning of building a new house?

If you are building a new house or someone else is building a home for you in your dream, it implies that you need to work on aspects of your personality and improve your attitude. Sometimes, seeing a construction site can indicate that you need people to help you improve life and upgrade your career. I like to say: a little help never hurt anyone. Often, these dreams appear when we need relaxation to cope with the emotional chaos.

Alternatively, such a dream represents your transformation from someone carefree into a matured, responsible person. The construction of a new house in your dream denotes the transitional phases you’re going through. Maybe you are becoming more aware of your emotions? A new home indicates that you are ready to enter the world with a completely different mindset than the one you’ve had before. Everyone will be very surprised by the positive changes you will apply in your life.

What does it mean to see an unfinished house in a dream?

To dream of an unfinished house reveals the things you keep postponing in your waking life. It can mean you are waiting for someone else to do the job for you, but no one will because you need to do this on your own. If you are exhausted then this dream is common. We all get tired in our modern life. Keep your head above water and continue swimming through life until you reached the right focus in life. And once you do, everything will become a lot easier. Alternatively, this dream might represent the unspoken words and feelings you keep inside.

What is the dream meaning of house construction?

To dream of construction on your house symbolizes a busy mind. A building is a positive omen that indicates you are trying to figure out something on your own. Or you are trying to understand how something works. Maybe you’re too focused on an idea. The dream also denotes some inner transformation. You’re working on yourself in order to improve your education in life. This dream can imply leaving your past behind and that you are creating the “new you.” A brick building in your dream often symbolizes your personality and behavior. It also represents your family and how you’re trying to improve your relationship with some family member. The dream also signifies your comprehension or intellect.

One minute you will feel proud of yourself, while in the next one, you will feel sorry for the mistakes you’ve once made and let your guilty conscience take over your mood. To live in a wooden house foretells some problems in your love life. It can represent feeling “stale” or not being able to communicate. A log cabin in a dream can indicate a new phase in life. A log cabin in the dream can indicate that you have certain expectations, hiding in a log cabin means focus is required.

To see someone else’s wooden house in your dream suggests that you should work on your attitude around new people. Running to a wooden house implies changing for better. In older dream lore seeing a house (that is not yours) but is wooden indicates becoming more aware. A derelict wooden home in dreams implies learning new things, acquiring wisdom and knowledge. To build a wooden house or have someone build it for you in your dream refers to the questions you want to ask your partner but don’t have the courage.

What does it mean to see a tree growing in the house during the dream?

This is quite an interesting dream and a user emailed me to ask what it means to see a tree inside a house, if you see a tree growing in a house it can imply that you are trying to ground yourself. Spiritually it is important to “ground” yourself once in a while. I like to sometimes meditate thinking that I am a tree and my roots go into the earth. This clears away negative energy, If the tree is green and it is growing inside a house this can signify happy and content times in the future. If the tree is dying and this represents your current mental state and that you need rest and recuperation to move forward in life.

Dream meaning of a house shaking or moving or turning over

Dreaming about a house that moves or shakes moving or shaking during the three can suggest something is going to hit your life. This dream often reflects frustration and anxiety.

Despite this, you will be able to accomplish all your goals. In this dream, if you are in an unfamiliar house and it moves or shakes for any reason and this can represent another person who is trying to exert their power over you. If you are in your own house and you feel movement was the house is shaking or turning in any way then this can suggest that you are feeling threatened by somebody. The shock that you fill in the dream upon realizing that you are moving is reminding you not to get too caught up in details in life. Strategies like planning ahead, completing things in advance making sure you feel more settled in daily life are important.

What’s the significance of a pink house in a dream?

As you might assume, pink is associated with sweetness, love, joy, happiness, affection, kindness but also fakeness. Why fakeness? Well, a Barbie is often dressed in pink and she’s made out of plastic, meaning people have already accepted the concept of plastic dressed in pink clothing. However, pink also represents your feminine qualities such as sensitivity, the strong intuition that’s never wrong and compassion.

If you had a dream that features the color pink means you’re trying to transform your attitude into a more pleasant one. In other words, you’re trying to become a better person for you and the people you love. This dream also foretells benefiting from your past actions.
