HOME and family in a culture like ours carry a lot of significance for every individual. It also carries an equal weightage in dreams. For a person to dream that he goes home and finds everything cheerful and comfortable, denotes harmony in family life and satisfactory results in business. To see your old home in a dilapidated state, warns you of the sickness of a relative. But if, in your dreams, you visit your old home and it is in good condition then you will have good news to rejoice over.
As per Indian
mythology, if you see a pillar of your house broken then it spells
ill-will for the old people of the family. However, if you see your
house being destroyed in front of you then it spells ill for your
complete family. If you dream that your house is getting burned and,
in the process, itself you wake up then you shall gain in both wealth
and fame. If the person dreams that he is making a house, such a dream
would predict wise changes in present affairs. If, in your dreams, you
see that you own an elegant house then you shall soon have to leave
your home for a better one, and fortune shall be kind to you. If you
dream that you are lost and unable to find your home then uncertainty
shall prevail among your relationships, making you lose. If you shift
house in your dreams, then hurried tidings and hasty journeys await
The attic is related to the past experiences and old memories. It also helps in highlighting family patterns of behaviour and attitudes which have been handed down. The basement represents the subconscious and those things that we may have suppressed through an inability to handle them. A basement can also highlight the power that is available to us, provided we are willing to make use of it. Our attitude to personal cleanliness and our most private thoughts and actions can be shown as the bathroom or the toilet. The bedroom portrays a place of safety where we can relax and be as sensual as we wish. The hallway is illustrative of how we relate to other people.
Thus, a house is a place where we can
be ourselves without fear or reprisal. A man of 37 often had dreamt of a
beautiful cottage on a hillock with greenery all around and a scenic
beauty surrounding it. It had a very large hall and several rooms.
Although it seems more a dream, that symbolises wish fulfilment, it
definitely portrays the person to social, because of the stress on the
largeness of the hall. It also portrays that this man is the type who
loves to show the world what he has and feels pride in it. Even such a
simple dream could portray inner aspects to your personality.
