Dream of Old House – Meaning and Symbolism

Subscribe to our Youtube channel about Angel Numbers:

Old houses are usually connected with ghosts, they are considered haunted so there are a lot of different horror movies that were filmed in those old houses.

Something about an old house is simply terrifying, there is that mysterious energy around it which makes you feel like someone still lives in those houses.

It can be pretty sad to think about these old houses actually, when you realize that that house was once brand new and filled with people who worked so hard for it.

But at one point everything they ever did just fell apart, like they were never there.

There are old houses from the war period, those houses are kind of ruined because of the war.

There are old houses that are turned into a museum, for example houses of famous poets but these houses are taken care of on a daily basis.

A house can look old even if it was brand new few months ago, when you do not take care of things they fall apart.

But when you take care of things they will certainly lost as long as there is effort.

So you see a house is just like a relationship, when you put in your time and your energy to make it  work it will work but the minute you stop doing what you were doing it will break down so it ends just like there was nothing there.

Old houses in a dream may symbolize lack of work and they are a symbol of the past.

They may appear scary, so dreaming about old houses may look like a complete nightmare that depends on the look of the old house in your dream.

Old house may represent that you are not trying to do your best, you are not being serious about yourself and your future.

Old house in a dream is a sign that you are ignoring your home, perhaps you are not taking care of your home or your family.

There is a possibility, if you are not in good terms with your family members, that this dream appears because of those conflicts.

This type of a dream may also appear if you are not taking care of yourself and your needs, perhaps you are occupied with bad habits that you are forgetting to take care of yourself.


If you are abandoning your needs for a healthier life, for a positive mind-set then this dream will appear.

Old house may also be a sign of your past, perhaps you have moved out from your previous house and now you are getting homesick for that place.

It is possible for you to dream about the exact same house or place you have lived before.

Sometimes this means that you have some unresolved conflicts about that place, perhaps a certain trauma or something else.

Having a dream about a familiar old house means that you see it constantly so it appears in your dream.

You are not taking care of yourself at all, this could cost you a lot more than you think.

These dreams are warning signs for you to change your behaviour before it is too late.

Your health should be your number one priority but you are not acting that way about it at all.

Finding a meaning to your dream can be tricky sometimes, especially if you forget about the details from your dream.

You need to remember the little things from your dream, if you have some troubles with memorizing then at least write it down so that it get easier for you to find the meaning you sre looking for.
