Ever get that recurring dream about a house you’ve never been to? Well then, you’re in good company because Foo Fighter’s lead man, Dave Grohl, recently revealed to Us Weekly that he has been getting that dream his entire life!
The unfamiliar house dream is actually a very common dream. You see, the house – whether it’s your actual house, a house you used to live in or some random dream house – represents YOU! The house in your dream represents everything about you and how you live. The style of the home, the condition of the home, what happens in the home, even the rooms in the home are connected to you and how you feel about your self as well as what is going on inside the psyche that your body houses. The dreaming mind uses the home in order to show you yourself and your state of mind in the form of a physical structure so you can better understand your own personality construct, thought construct and even body construct. Look at your house dreams as an honest blueprint of your current self image.
In most cases, dreaming of an unfamiliar house suggests the dreamer is still getting to know her or himself and is discovering things about themselves they didn’t previously know, like discovering new talents, skills, opinions or ideas. Dave Grohl, being a musician and song writer, it would make sense that he’s constantly coming up with new ideas and opinions. However, the unfamiliar house dream can also mean that you are not feeling “at home” in your current life, that what you are dealing with or where your life is at is not comfortable or what you you think it should be. This could also fit for Dave because in that same US Weekly article he states that he’s been touring almost every year since he was 17. He literally isn’t “at home” a good portion of each year so his life is made up of unfamiliar places.
Houses are very important dream symbols because the type of house, the state of the house, even the rooms in the house are giving you very important messages you need to know about your self. And when you can understand those messages, you can drastically improve your self, your state of mind and well being. My book So, What Did You Dream Last Night? has an entire chapter on houses in dreams and also covers what it means when you dream of…
