But, what should we do and what does it mean when in our dream world ghosts appear? Should we be scared or should we think of this as a friendly visit?
Like in every other case, such a dream and its symbolical value depend on the other circumstances in a dream; so today we have decided to look at the meaning and symbolism of a Dream of a Haunted house.
Read all about this.
Meaning of a Dream of Haunted House
In a dream symbolism when you see ghosts in your dream, it is the symbol of numerous struggles that you are having in life and problematic hardships that comes with it.
Such a dream, regardless of other circumstances, means that in the upcoming period, you will have great temptations that will cause you worries and headaches. Problems will pile up, and you won’t know where to start solving them. The only positive thing will be that your loved one will support you, and you will find that you are not alone.
Now, in this case, the situation is more precise, you are having a dream that you are in a haunted house – surprisingly, this is the dream that in fact speaks of your personal life. Because the house, your house in a dream is the symbol of you, and your personal relations in your life, that you are having a problem in dealing with.
So if you are in a haunted house, such a dream implies that you are not sure of your partner’s love.
Being haunted by a dream may mean that you refuse to confront and solve past problems, regardless of the fact that they affect your life.
If in a dream where you are in a haunted house (that is not your own home, you do not recognize that house, it belongs to someone else) means that you are running away from something and that your deep mind is telling you that you might be punished.
The Symbolism of a Dream of Haunted House
The majority of dream symbolical systems agree that dreams where the main motive is a ghost (in whatever form) point to horrible situations that you had in the past, especially related to your emotional life, even if this does not have to be your lover. These dreams can expose your displeasure with the life that you have been leading in the previous period.
If you dream of seeing a ghost, such a dream can be a sign of the emotional stress you have been under recently. Maybe the things that bother you are not that big and significant, but they may have some mystical attributes. The symbolical value of the dream that has a haunted house in its center, as the main motive, alters a lot regarding other circumstances in a dream.
The symbolism of this dream can go in numerous different ways, for example, in it you could see yourself like you are the ghost that is haunting that home, and then it symbolizes your past. The time is now to face that past, and it could be some guilt you carry, painful memories or repressed thoughts.
If you are terribly scared by the fact that, in a dream, you are in a haunted house, and you are even paralyzed from that fear – it may be a bad sign saying you will receive some bad news soon, but you can see this as a warning and prepare yourself for that problem or bad news.
Sometimes, such a dream can signal the news of someone’s death and be a kind of funeral invitation – it does not have to be someone who is close to you.
But, in the dream where you are not afraid that you are in a haunted house, and then symbolical value alters – it may mean you will receive some good news soon. You may hear some good news that will bring you happiness and joy.
If in your dream you see a haunted house, and in it, you do not see just one ghost, but many of them, it could just mean that you are reminded of something or someone from your previous life/past. You may have been emotionally attached to some past situations that kept you from moving on.
If in that haunted home that you are dreaming, the ghost that is possessing that home is attacking you, this dream then speaks of your emotionality, and it speaks of the possibility that you have some accumulated negative emotions and frustrations and feel like you are about to burst.
Some say that this dream when a ghost is attacking you has one more additional meaning – it signifies the feeling that someone is ignoring you, and once again this could be connected to the emotional life (the person you like is ignoring you) or with some work-related issue.
Do I have to be worried?
You should be in some, because this is the dream that speaks of you, and your interpersonal connections in life; because the house is always the symbol of something integral in your life, and when it is haunted that means that your house/life is under threat. And that threat can come in disguise, and it can be hidden from the plain sight, it comes in the worst of time and scares you very much.
So think of your relationship with your lover.
You are constantly tormented by the suspicion that a loved one has not cleared up with her past. Although he denies it, you think that without thinking, he would return to his former love if she wanted to reconcile. Such an attitude will hurt your relationship, and it will be obvious that there is no trust between you.
If the ghost in that haunted house is chasing you and you see that you are running away from them, such a dream sit may signify your sadness about losing someone important in life. Sometimes, this dream signifies you are nostalgic or feel sad about something you can’t bring back.
You should be worried, or maybe in some ways, you should be alerted because such a dream means that you could experience some form of damage in your life. You may be too relaxed in a situation that will require responsibility and concentration at the highest level. This is especially true for you if you are working with money or in a demanding position.
Although you will know the risks, you will act lightly that can bring you material losses and conflicts with bosses.
Some say that this dream of the haunted house means that you are not satisfied with yourself and that you are tormented by your previous actions – there is also a desire to change your life, but you do not know how to do it.
This may come to you as a major lesson that will teach you how to stop being guilty of creating or understanding things in the wrong way, especially if those actions hurt others.
What to do if I had this dream?
Ghosts have multiple meanings, some of which are ghosts, the character of one person or people, the Holy Spirit in Christianity, the driving force, and more. From whatever side you look at this dream, it is not the type of the dream that you could neglect and disregard as irrelevant, because it is very important, especially in the case when you are dreaming of a haunting house.
Often times, this is the dream that is the clear symbol that someone or something is out of your reach and that you are suffering because of it, you feel fear. It may be a sign of your isolation from society. In some cases, this dream may mean that you need to change the way you think or behave, and as you will be able to see later in the piece, this just may be the call to move on from the past.
Since this dream of the haunted house means that you are running away from something and that you feel that you may be punished because of it, there are a few things that you should do.
You have probably been wrong in the past about someone who trusted or depended on you. If you could take the time, you would do everything differently, and you should take this dream as such a lesson. In the coming period, you will try to correct at least some of the wrongdoing and ask for forgiveness from these people to appease your conscience.
In any case, the past is present when ghosts are in your dream, and when they are in a house, and then it could mean that in the past you were in a situation that is now preventing you from expressing yourself.
Dream symbols sometimes imply that any dream that is connected to the motive of ghost is, in fact, the fear of death, or losing something that you value a lot in life. In the case of the haunted home, such a dream could symbolize that you are afraid that you will lose yourself and your true identity.
It is sometimes a sign that you are trying so hard to escape from a life situation. This dream can sometimes indicate a feeling of regret and sadness about something you failed to do. You may have been forced to sacrifice some hopes and desires, and you have never overcome that loss.
So, at the end of this piece, we can all agree that the dream of the haunted house in the majority of cases regularly expresses the unfinished tasks of the history that still trouble us, and we cannot move on in any reasonable direction, and this is why we see that tormentor in the form of ghost.
Those issues from the past could be emotional matter, some bad thoughts, some lovers that we could not get over, etc. – This is the wake-up call to move on and progress in some direction that is better for us.
In the end, just one more information that is connected to the dreamers of such a dream – this is the dream that comes into the minds of the humans who had experienced some kind of personal trauma in the previous period, like the loss of someone dear, or they have been part of some stressful event that changes them forever.
Those who believe that there is something from the “other side” believes that this is the way of how their deceased loved ones are talking to them – but it also shows their inability to move on.
