Dream Symbol: building

building

You or your life. If it's an office building, it might represent your work life. The dream events that happen in the building can represent events in your life (or work life). If present in the dream, a basement can represent your subconscious, the top floor your spirituality, and the floors in between your current life.

A building can also be a setting, an atmosphere, or provide a tone or mood for certain dream events. For example, a school building might represent a recent learning situation or enlightening conversation.

Tips to Understand Dream Meaning

Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:

  • Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
  • Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
  • Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
