Haunted House

I remember a while back, I was in a haunted house with Laverne & Shirley. I was being chased by a vampire. I remember running down this big hall lined with plastic and jumping out of a two-story window. When I jumped out of the window, I hit the ground and leaped over a fence. By no means am I afraid of vampires. but I am afraid of haunted houses. The house is still so clear to me. It was big, gray with black shutters and a red door. It was sooo creepy!!!

Hi Kelli,

Haunted house in dreams signifies repressed memories and unacknowledged feelings. The gray color and black shutters of the house all lend to the mysteriousness and dreariness of the house. The red door is significant for the color red symbolizes life energy (blood), fiery passion, and anger. The door is one of the livelier aspects of the house. Your eye is immediately drawn to the door, inviting you to come in. Your dream seems to suggest that you need to pay more attention to these repressed feelings.

Vampires also represents life energy. After all, they thrive on the blood of humans. Additionally, they signify aggression and lust. Vampires themselves are mysterious and denote unacknowledged parts of your mind. You said it yourself that you are not afraid of the vampire, but fearful of the haunted house. Houses in dreams represent the Self. In particular, haunted houses mean the rejected or repressed parts of the Self. What you are afraid of may be confronting these aspects of yourself. The Vampire may function as the guard of the house who prevents you from exploring it.

Little is mention of Laverne and Shirley other than they were in the haunted house. Were they being chased as well? Why are they in the haunted house? Could they represent somebody from the past who you want to forget? Let's not forget that Laverne and Shirley are sitcom characters who make us laugh. Their appearance in your dream may be an attempt to lighten the mood of your creepy dream.

Best Regards,


Pitch Black Warehouse

I had this dream  that is bothering me. I'm floating around looking down at some trees. The trees are very green and probably the most vivid color I've ever seen in a dream. All of a sudden I see a greyish-blue warehouse. 

I float down and go inside it. As soon as I'm inside I have this overwhelming feeling that I'm looking for something. However it's pitch black and I can't see anything. I start feeling around but I can't find anything. Then I woke up. 

What does this mean? I'd really like to know.

Hi Kris,

Floating through the air represents your new perspective on life. The lush vivid green trees are in great contrast to the drab darkness of the warehouse. This imagery may parallel some waking life situation in which on the surface you appear to have a care-free attitude, but below the surface, you harbor some negative emotions or dark secret/memories. The warehouse refer specifically to your memories. Since you are unable to see anything in the warehouse, they may very well represent repressed childhood memories.

Best Regards,
