Dream symbol Garret


attic, hiding place, storage room, dark, dusty, forgotten, junk room

The term "attic" is quickly associated with words like "narrow", "small" and "dark". The attic usually refers to a simply insulated but barely furnished room under the roof, which serves as a rumpus room. This room under the roof is usually equipped with limited size and low ceiling height.

The symbol of the attic in the dream should again be interpreted holistically in connection with the respective feelings in the dream. Indications whether the garret was small, narrow or large and spacious contribute significantly to the clear interpretation and can be helpful. Did one feel confined or did the garret spread atmosphere, even a comforting warm feeling ?

General dream interpretation

The general interpretation about the dream image "attic'" directs the dreamer to look at unfulfilled hopes and longings. Which desires come too short in real life or always have to take a back seat and cannot be fulfilled? The attic invites the dreamer to deal with these issues.

A small and narrow garret may symbolize a physical discomfort or dissatisfaction to the dreamer. It seems that in waking life the person in question is exposed to these feelings without having any idea how to deal with them. This dream image implies the request to investigate the cause of this discomfort in order to get rid of it.

If the dreamer is confronted with the dream situation of spending the night in a garret, one should be prepared for failure. It is to be expected that you will not find happiness in the current occupation.

Psychological dream interpretation

From a psychological point of view, the symbol "garret" embodies an unconscious longing of the dreamer for more free space and vastness and thus to break out of his limited world. In the waking state, he feels somewhat lost in the face of the interwoven networks and entanglements of the modern world. Therefore he desires a greater degree of seclusion in order to immerse himself in a state of inner peace.

If the dreamer is in the dream situation locked up in the narrow attic, it has the opposite effect on the dream interpretation. This symbol indicates that it would be necessary to expand one's horizons and strive for an increase in knowledge. This can lead to a breakthrough into new expanses and depths and help him to leave his narrow life behind.

Mentioned in a few cases, the dream image attic could indicate communication difficulties. In real life, the sleeper lacks the ability to express himself verbally in an understandable way as he pleases and feels restricted in communication.

Spiritual dream interpretation

On the spiritual level of dream analysis, "garret" is symbolized as a longing of the dreamer for spiritual detachment, to get away from external distractions, to deepen introspection. At the moment this garret gives him protection and security in this phase of development.
