Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Wallpaper is a covering that goes on top of the wall as opposed to painting it.

The advantage of wallpaper is that it is relatively easy to give a room a classy lift with complicated design or detail without having to paint it directly. Sometimes wallpaper can make a big job simple because there is no real mess or fuss. However, taking down wallpaper or using wallpaper to cover something else up can also be a difficulty. It can represent blocked energies in your life or sweeping issues under the rug rather than creating a solid and more permanent fix to a problem in your life.

Detailed dream meaning

Hanging paper on walls is a sign of covering up and can be a positive or a negative. For example, the dream may mean something that needs beautifying or being taken care of and thus you are enhancing something in your life. This is a positive connotation in the dream and can indicate a pleasant change coming your way – usually emotionally speaking or regarding a relationship of some kind. When the wallpaper is hideous or not going on well though, this can be a sign of covering up something in your life.

To dream that you are taking down wallpaper, especially if you are ripping it down and trying to find something underneath it is a sign of your own barriers coming down, loosening your control in your life, or even vulnerability. This can represent someone who has blocked off their feelings or their true self but are starting to feel like they are giving in to a bigger picture or coming together to make things be as they should. If you have dreams that you are tearing the paper down then you want to consider your own feelings and how you have been feeling exposed or if there is someone around you that is causing you to feel this way.

Wallpaper can be an inexpensive solution to a problem wall as well. Consider when you are covering up something o a wall that perhaps you are taking the easy way out in your waking world. Examine areas where perhaps an easy solution will or will not be the right one for the long term. The way the paper goes up and how the finished product looks can also be a sign of if you are doing the right thing or not.

Replacing the old is usually a good sign in a dream, indicating that you are taking care of a situation that has been festering too long. This kind of action in a dream calls you to look at your life. Obviously you are unhappy with a situation and it is time for a resolution. This tells you to stop putting up with old ways of doing things that are no longer working for you. Allow for change and out with the old and in with the new.
