Interpreting Room Dreams

Hypnosis is a great way to discover or interpret what your recurring dreams may mean. In a recurrent dream I have at least several times a year, I find myself in my home. While wandering through the halls and doorways (that never look like my actual, real-life home) I discover new rooms. Often times these rooms, for some reason, have a spa-like quality to them. I have no idea why. They may have large bathing tubs and showers or a place to sit, with a mirror, as if at a hair salon. Other times, the rooms look like guest rooms.

These rooms often contain the items of whoever lived there before me. In my dream, it’s acknowledged that these items are now mine because the previous owner no longer wanted them and they were part of the home when it became my home. They are often personal items and within my dream, I wonder why they were forgotten or left behind. They may be photographs in frames, or jewelry. Or just everyday items you’d find on a dresser or on top of a refrigerator or up in a kitchen cupboard. Or blankets and pillows and even clothing. It’s a bonus if I lift the clothing up and find that it’s something I like and is in my size.

Secret Doors and Pathways

I’m always surprised when I discover these “extra-rooms” in my home. Discovering these exciting secret pathways, I feel fortunate to find them. In my last “room” dream, I found more “cubbies” and secret doors within one of the newly discovered rooms. But a rather strange thing happened. I was pulling back areas on the wall, above a bed in a dark room. I discovered that peeling back the wall, I could see outside. On the other side, very close by, was busy highway. I was concerned about large trucks or cars whizzing past and possibly crashing into the room.

In some dreams, the extra rooms I find are quite extravagant, with art and décor that I never thought I could own. Wow! A gorgeous, trickling waterfall coming down a rock formation with beautiful lighting behind it in an entry way. But sometimes, in other dreams, the rooms are dark and dusty and have a long- forgotten, kind of sad feeling to them.

New Openings Are New Beginnings!

In hypnosis schooling, we discussed dream interpretation and meanings. After describing my recurring dream, a few of my classmates, insightfully suggested I was subconsciously looking for new opportunities and paths in my life.  Three and a half years later, after a lot of saving and planning, I found myself leaving a good paying, long-term job with great benefits. It wasn’t an easy decision. But not pursuing my dream of practicing hypnosis and helping people while making a living at it was SO important to me that I felt it was worth it.

Why the big bathtubs and spa-like stuff that frequently show up in my recurring room dreams? Perhaps I’ll go see a fellow hypnotist so I can discover why! In reality, I would love a large bathroom with a big ole tub! My “real life” bathroom is small and has the standard tub/shower. Pretty basic, nothing fancy whatsoever. Maybe I want to be pampered? Rarely do I get a professional massage. I do my own hair color to save money and I don’t go to the salon for haircuts often, for the same reason. Someday, I’d like to have the freedom to spend more on those types of luxuries.

Discover What the Meanings Are

Below is some info I found online about Room Dreams. You can go to to discover what meanings other symbols may have.

To dream that you are in a room represents a particular aspect of yourself or a specific relationship.  Dreams about various rooms often relate to hidden areas of the conscious mind and different aspects of your personality. If the room is welcoming or comfortable, then it signifies opulence and satisfaction in life. If you dream of being in a dark or confined room, then it denotes that you feel trapped or repressed in a situation.

To dream that you find or discover a new room suggests that you are developing new strengths and taking on new roles. You are growing emotionally. Consider what you find in the discovered room as it may indicate repressed memories, fears, or rejected emotions. Alternatively, such rooms are symbolic of neglected skills or rejected potential.

Dreaming that you are building or adding a room means that you are experiencing a surge of energy and renewed confidence. You have a different outlook on life and are moving toward a new direction in life. Alternatively, to build a room in your dream is symbolic of an expansion to your family.

To dream that you are in an empty white room indicates a fresh start. It is like a blank canvas where you want to start life anew. Alternatively, the dream means that you are trying to isolate yourself. You do not want any outside influences.

Dreaming that you are in a dark room with no doors signify ignorance. You are isolating yourself. Alternatively, the dream means that you refuse to be influenced by outside forces.

To dream of a dirty or messy room refers to an aspect of yourself that you are ashamed of or are refusing to acknowledge.

To dream of a yellow room suggests that you need to use your mind. You are feeling stimulated mentally.

 And Specifically a Bathtub

To see or be in a bathtub in your dream suggests a need for self-renewal and escape from everyday problems. You need to rid yourself of the burdens that you have been carrying. Alternatively, it indicates your mood for love and pursuit of pleasure and relaxation”
