Last night I dreamt I was part of a group of people I didn't know renovating (possibly professionally) a strangers house. I don't renovate houses professionally in real life or as a hobby either! The dream felt so real after I'd woken up!!

A house represents the dreamer.

Renovating the house means you either are, or you to make self improvement. That could be learning, a change of image, a change to your lifestyle, s change of opinion. All probably realistic during lockdown!

Strangers can represent unrecognised traits of yourself. Something you fail to see, or acknowledge about yourself, that maybe others do see.

Imagine you’re the house. Ask yourself why you’re being renovated and if you know any of the people. While still ‘the house’ look around and see if you do actually recognise the surroundings, if you recognise the internals as they are before the works is done.

Now one by one as a stranger, ask the house why it wants you to renovate it and ask all the other people why you’re there, how you all got there, what tools you have, how long you’re there for, if you’re doing inside and the gardens, absolutely everything.

I had to do this for counselling over an intense bereavement and in just the fraction of one second, I had my answer. It was

Ichwill - OMG you are SO true in what you say - I'm doing a weight loss /diet/exercise regime at the moment - have lost at least a stone since lockdown!! - I'm thinking all the time about how my future life will be different.
Funnily enough, 2010 was the happiest year of my life. In summer of that year I dreamt about a house - in an affluent suburb of a city but surrounded by lush green grass. I entered the house - a bungalow - it was furnished with occasional chairs but there was no one in the house. The thing that struck me though was the dream had a lovely warm, happy optimistic feel to it.
Now by the autumn of 2012 I'd started 'losing my way' a bit, as it were and I suppose I wasn't as happy on a personal level. This time I dreamt of a house but it was closed so I only dreamt about it from the outside and also in a very barren landscape.

Dreammoods website is great for interpreting. A-Z search and very detailed.

@StirlingWork Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad it makes sense.

Well done on the weight loss. smile

Ooh will check out the website thanks. Had a well weird dream last night involving Amanda Holden in a cardboard cut out of a fat suit,opera singing with Jonathan Ross on ice skates dancing and spelling out 'goodbye cunts' on the ice. I was confused when I woke.

Ooh I love the idea of dream interpretation!
I recently dreamt I was trying to keep my baby safe because there were scorpions in my house! It was very tense, and also for some reason Lin Manuel Miranda was there.

Those who interpret dreams, how do you tie elements of dreaming together? I often seen things like X means Y and A means B but how to you tell what they mean together?

Fascinating stuff. smile

Ah apparently I'm contemplating a melodramatic flounce. But the site has no idea about the mankini he was wearing.

StirlingWork Wed 27-May-20 22:14:10

Thanks Ichwill and mogtheexcellent - that spelling on the ice thing proper made me laugh. Are you contemplating a classic facebook flounce? grin

Apparently the scorpions can mean harsh words, negative thoughts or a painful situation. hmm

Still dont know the significance of Lin Manuel Miranda but I do like him.

mogtheexcellent Wed 27-May-20 22:29:34


I'd rather Lin Manuel than jonathan ross in a mankini. Can we swap?

frostedviolets Wed 27-May-20 22:44:28

Gosh, ‘dream interpreters’ would have a field day with my dreams!
They are almost always really weird hmm

I would love to do a PhD in dream interpretation, I find it absolutely fascinating. I have reoccuring dreams about houses, being lost in them and not being able to find my way out. Lots of internal doors but no windows.
