The house is almost the same in every single dream. It is a huge mansion, with many undiscovered rooms. The house is made of very beautiful shiny dark wood especially the main staircase and the flourier. The doors to the house are huge. They are never allowed to be opened in my dreams. I don’t even try to open them because I know that it will anger the ghosts. I do know that there is a terrible storm outside, and if I did leave the house, I would not get far. Last night I had this dream. IN the dream there was a serious of events going on. There was a wedding, and a funeral
I notice that there are a lot of stairs in the house. There are also a series of rooms that I do not dare enter. All the rooms are haunted, and the nicest rooms in the house. When I have guests over I have to keep them from going in any of the rooms as well, or the ghosts will get angry.
The Dream is recurring because we don’t yet understand the message. But when you understand the message: the nightmares will stop.
Let us start with the house. A house that you dream of will tend to represent you, in the sense that a house is where you live, so a dream house is where your unconscious mind lives. The unexplored areas, the beautiful rooms, even the people who dwell in the house all represent you on a very basic level. Even the wedding and the funeral, though they are not yours but they touch upon you in some way, the funeral probably representing the death of some ideas, and the wedding joining of others.
But if your house is haunted in dreams, what is haunting you in your waking life. Their main concern seems to be to keep you from exploring certain parts of the house, as well as preventing you from leaving it. This kind of no-win, binding situation usually stems from an outside influence. Authority figures are most commonly to blame for putting these kinds of ghosts in our heads, in the form of guilt.
The ideas I’m about to present come largely from a book called “Creative Dreaming”, by Patricia Garfield. It’s an exercise to try to take control of your dreams, at least enough control to overcome your fear and get a little more information on what’s bothering you.
Select a doorway that you can get to every day, and call it the forbidden doorway in your dream. Spend a minute or two trying to convince yourself of this, and then force yourself to open the door and walk through. Do this at least once a day, preferably more often. The purpose behind this exercise should become clear before long; you are conditioning yourself to overcome the fear associated with angering the ghosts. Eventually you should be able to break this barrier in your dreams.
I won’t lie; this will still be scary at first. You don’t’ know what to expect when you go through that door. But you must believe that you can handle it. Dream enemies are also a part of yourself, and they can actually become allies once you get over your fear of them.
I am in a huge and beautiful old mansion. It is immaculate and in very good condition. The problem is I know that the house is haunted. I can’t believe we are moving into this place, but know it is temporary.
I dread the upper bedrooms. I know that the “red” room is haunted, but we don’t really have to use it. The downstairs blue master bedroom is also haunted and has the most enormous closet and bathroom and is wonderful, but I will NOT use the room.
The occurrences finally happen in the kitchen. The room is swirling with invisible demons, and they press against me, trying to kill me, and I am finally able to ask Jesus to help me. He does, and the evil must leave us alone, but I know that I need to leave, and only have enough time to get out. I try to gather my children and leave, but doors slam in my face, and someone is always missing, and I have to search the house, facing the terror, and finally we get out of the house, or I wake up terrified.
Carl Jung talked about recurring dreams he had in which he would discover parts of his house that he didn’t know existed. In that dream the house represented his personality and the new things he discovered in the house related to new developments in his work.
Houses in dreams usually represent parts of ourselves. It is important that you think about what the symbols in this dream represent to you. I will give you one interpretation but I caution you, this does not mean that it is correct because only you know what these symbols really mean.
Your image of yourself is beautiful, immaculate and in very good shape. There might be parts of yourself that frighten you or haunt you. The red room could represent anger or danger. You might be afraid of your own anger and know you ‘really don’t have to use it’.
What does blue represent to you? It seems to be a large part of you that you view as wonderful. Unfortunately you are frightened or haunted by it and will ‘NOT’ use the room.
The kitchen might represent your core personality; kitchens tend to have a lot of activity and creativity going on. In your core, the scary parts are pressing in, demanding expression? You fear they will kill you. If you acknowledge them, will they destroy an image you have of yourself?
Jesus might represent the good and pure savior in you. This good part of you can save you, but you feel you must still leave the house to be safe. Does this mean you must leave your true self to be safe? You find it difficult to leave the house, if it does represent yourself; it is understandable why it is difficult to leave. Are there parts of yourself that seek expression? They seem to be parts you feel are wonderful but for some reason you fear them.
