The house is popularly known as the seat of the soul, and in spiritual terms links us to the way we are in the world. A house represents security and safety, and therefore signifies protection and the Great Mother. In psychological terms, the house also signifies the life we live, the protections we create and the 'structure' we present to other people. In dreams, the different rooms and parts of houses represent the various aspects of our personality and life experiences. There are several interpretations and given below is one such set: Attic - dreaming of being in an attic is to do with past experiences and old memories. Interestingly, it can also highlight family patterns of behaviour and attitudes that have been handed down. Basement/cellar - the cellar most often represents the subconscious and those things we may have suppressed through an inability to handle them. A basement can also highlight the power that is available to us provided we are willing to make use of it. Often associated with self-image and self-confidence, we may not have come to terms with our own charisma and personal power and prefer to keep it hidden. Bathroom - in dreams our attitude to personal cleanliness and our most private thoughts and actions can be shown as the bathroom or toilet. It is the place where we can let go of our negativity in safety. Bedroom - the bedroom portrays a place of safety where we can relax and be as sensual as we wish. Chimney - as a passage from one state to another and a conductor of heat, in dreams the chimney can indicate how we deal with our inner emotions and warmth. Hall - the hallway in a dream is illustrative of how we meet and relate to other people. Library - our minds, and how we store the information we receive, can appear as a library.
