There was a man outside the circle,and he kept shapeshifting into a cat.After all these years I could still pick that face out in a crowd,if I ever had to see "catman" in real life.He would hiss as he shrunk and became catform+back to human shape,I recall he was furious because I was inside the circle+was safe from him as long as I stayed inside it.
Well that is pretty damn weird.
I swear I didn't read your reply before my previous reply where I talked about being in an old house looking for a cat that had this "evil" feeling about...and then sometimes I would realize that I am the cat or I turned into the cat. I don't remember any circles though.

I have had a version of the school dream where it is time for final exam and I haven't attended the class all year. I should point out that I graduated in 1975 but still occasionally have school dreams.

I have had a version of the house dream where there is a ladder in the attic that I cannot climb to the top of because it goes on and on. This is getting so funny.
I have dreams about Bob Vila but never about an old house.
Did any of you (in childhood) wander through old abandoned (country) houses/mansions? Perhaps they are dreams including memories of those occasions?
I know as kids a bunch of us would break into old houses (often the doors were open) and wander within them (cannot imagine how we weren't injured by doing so).
Grew up in a small town though where there were lots of such properties to find. I assume Detroit will be a hotspot soon for ghost hunters and perhaps dreams of that sort.
I have the same sorts of dreams very often, but my houses are connected, i dont leave one house through an outer door but i do find rooms from other houses in them all mashed up - usually old houses.
I also have these dreams where i go upstairs and go onto a balcony (that none of my houses has ever had) and i look over to the next house. I take a run up and i leap 5 meters or so onto the next house roof, then keep running and jump over the next house onto the other roof then after. A few more houses and later ( andd concentrating/focusing) i can leap off and stay in the air - till something else in my dream forces me to land and then usually it changes to some other random thing/dream etc.
It happens a few times a month and is usually vivid and close to the morning, like the last REM cycle i guess. For as long as i can remember.edit on 11-11-2013 by Biigs because: (no reason given)
A recurring dream I've had since childhood is one involving an old house, and trying to find hidden rooms/secret passages. I love having these, and I am always disappointed when they end.
Has anyone here on ATS had this dream?
Yes, from time to time I have this dream, as well. It doesn't surprise me, as we are all human. So, whatever makes our brain go to a place like this, is only because we are all the same, in the end.
Thanks for sharing.

Haha! Your post had me cracking up picturing that
I wanted to point out that you're the 5th+ person to mention specifically "spiral" staircase. Does anyone ever have a regular ol staircase? I know mine are always spiral...
What say ye, great ATS dream interpreters!?
Babies, cats, and dogs all dream, so yeah, 4 year olds do, too.
Dreaming is not only about working things out mentally. Dreaming has a lot to do with memory. We know this because people deprived of REM sleep have trouble remembering things. It's believed to be a way for your subconscious to interpret and store the days events in a sort of shorthand that is symbolic. Dreams deal with emotions because we get emotional about what's going on in our lives.
The earliest memory I have of this dream is age 4. So what could a 4 year old possibly be working out mentally?

I have had a recurring dream of a huge old house as well but in my dream I always have an uneasy feeling and am hiding from someone or something. There is always an evil presence in the house that is looking for me. As far as I know I have never been to any place even close to the place in my dreams yet I can describe the entire place in great detail from the wall and carpet colors to all of the things stored in the attic and the pictures on the wall. I have had this dream over and over since I was a child and I am 40 years old now.
This is really interesting. All my life I have had dreams of houses where I would discover new rooms of all kinds, from the attic to the basement.
Weirdest thing: I found a house like my dreams a little while ago.
I was invited to an acquaintances house for a party and we were encouraged to freely explore the house.
The upstairs was quite conventional. However the layout did lead to the discovery of some bedrooms that were around corners and in a few unexpected places.
But the basement, ohhhhhhh, I adored it.
A secret bedroom that served as a safe room,
surrounded by a closet that opened into the family room on one side and a bathroom that opened to a hallway on the other...
with a locked gun room door...
kept going through the family room to find a huge office,
off the office was a media room, unseen from the family room and accessed only through the office,
which also led to a huge mud room
attached to a below ground garage.
I was in heaven. I felt like I was in one of my dreams. It was so fun and I felt compelled to lead other guests through the basement. If they ever put it on the market, I'll be first in line, it felt so "right" to me.
It is also located in the strangest area, a tiny nearly invisible road near the intersection of 2 main roads in an "office park" type area, with a huge pasture and several hidden barns. Adored the location too, quiet, hard to find, yet in a developed area, in a small city, an anomaly at best.
