Detailed dream meaning...

Many people have different interpretations of old house dreams and this is because the dream is very individualistic. How you perceive the house in the dream and how you feel about it is all relative to your own views of both the world and of yourself. Take these interpretations to heart but also follow your own reactions to the dream to apply them to your own life.

When you see an old house in a dream that is dilapidated, not painted, or not cared for – this is an indication that you are not taking care of things in your own life. Internally you are feeling run down, not taken care of, or out of sorts. When you have dreams like this it can also be a sign of health issues that you are not taking care of in your own life.

Building or adding onto an old house in a dream is a sign of growth and upkeep. It can be a good indication for health – especially if you are painting a house. Healing colors when painting a house are gold, blue, and green. If you are taking care of the lawn but the house remains in poor repair, this is a sign that you are taking care of the material aspects of your life but emotionally or spiritually you are lacking.

When you see an old house on fire, this is a warning dream. This dream is telling you that there are things in your life that need to be let go of or destroyed because they are bad for you. Often dreams like these will be your psyche’s reaction to abuse (i.e. Drug or from another person as in physical abuse) or doing negative behaviors in excess. If you do not stop the bad actions or habits in your life then you will regret it. This kind of dream is telling you to put out the fires in your life before they destroy everything.

When you explore or walk into an old house in a dream this is a positive sign about moving up in the world. If you are repairing the inside of an old house this too is positive as it shows that you are on the right path in your life.

If you get lost inside an old house this means that you are lost in your own thoughts and can indicate worry or stress about a family member.

Demolishing an old house in a dream is a bad sign, indicating that someone is trying to harm your family or that there are going to be fights, rumors, or bad blood between family members. In turn an old house that is all white on the inside indicates familial growth. Grass growing inside an old house indicates a birth or a wedding.

If you are buying a house or looking for a new home, dreaming of an old house can be a good or bad sign. If the old house is sturdy and strong then this is a good sign. Likewise, if the house is a bad old house, then you may want to be careful of a particular place you were looking at in the waking world.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life...

  • Meditation / Contemplation.
  • Weddings and Birth.
  • Moving ahead with your life.
  • Changing your mind or point of view.
  • Buying a house.
