House Dream Definition
To have a house dream could represent a vast number of things. Think about what a house represents – a home, a place where you feel safe, or comforted. A place for family and friends to gather. A house is a very personal space and can be an extension of you and how you see your inner self.
A new house represents a fresh start and something you can build on and represents where you are with your subconscious self and your own self-awareness. Building a house and making a house a home doesn’t happen overnight, but by habits we build and things we do consistently. So, house dreams can suggest you need to build reliable habits in your waking life to get the life you want and experience personal growth.
Most Frequent Examples of Dreams about Houses
Did You Dream About… a Broken Window in a House
A window of a house is how you see out into the outside world from the inside. How a window appears represents your view and outlook on life. A house dream with a broken window suggests that something is wrong with your outlook and it’s affecting the state of your home. If the broken window is in an old house, it could suggest that your outlook is old and needs refreshing and if it’s in a new house this could represent that your new way of doing things isn’t working. It’s a good chance to reflect on your waking life and see if you could fix how you look at things.
Did You Dream About… Your Childhood House
A house dream about your childhood home is a great opportunity to look inwardly at your personal identity and where it was shaped.
