For the last six weeks or so, almost every dream has involved me being in a house or a building. Some of these dreams range from fantastical contructs
(an old wooden hotel built into a giant mountain - with hundreds of floors, balconies and rooms) others are more realistic - small houses and
realistic looking rooms filled with everday items.
I know Jung mentions something about houses representing the body and the mind, but it's all I seem to dream about lately. Almost all of the houses
and buildings are seemingly abandoned, or in a state of clutter (although not destroyed or ruined, more like recently abandoned or as though the
'owners' are away).
In some of the dreams, I feel guilty, as though I'm invading someone elses private space, like I shouldn't be there. Sometimes I return to the same
dream house, sometimes it's somewhere different. The houses are very detailed, last night I wandered through a house, but the dimensions were wrong,
hard to explain, but the rooms were smaller or bigger than they should have been. Other times, I feel comfort or nostalgia, or familiarity.
Some of the dreams contain rooms from my personal real life experiences, whilst others are no doubt created from my mind.
The strange thing is... Most dreams I have are very abstract, with surreal nonsensical imagery, yet recently these house dreams are very realistic
(besides the occasional odd dimensions). Most of the time I'm alone, seemingly searching for things in rooms, cupboards etc.
I've googled this and everything seems to point towards me having to find something inside myself? But this doesn't fit with me really, it doesn't
seem right. These dreams and houses feel like I'm in someone elses property and that I'm a visitor or intruder, which is very out of character for
me, since I respect people's privacy.
This morning, I again dreamt about a house (probably the fifth time in 2 weeks), and the detail was amazing, I could see objects, some of which were
strewn across the floor, like hairbrushes and tubes of shavng foam (very mundane I know), and in other rooms were beds, carpets, and objects like
chairs, shoes, coats etc...
I know this may sound strange, I'm writing this as a comfort to myself, but can anyone help me figure out what the hidden message might be inside my
dreams. I'll happily elaborate (to the best of my memory) if you ask me questions....
When I say abandoned houses, I don't mean ruined, just.... forgotten and recently empty, as though people have not long moved away or left the
house..... strange, as the dreams are lingering with me, most dreams I forget instantly...
