    Yup, that's occurred to me too!

    The house is set in on the side of a hill overlooking an impressive landscape which I explore by bicycle. Haven't spotted Techy there yet!

    When I was little I would dream of a giant haunted house which spiralled further and further underground, and a giant blue hand would block the entrance.

    I was (and still am) a big fan of both M.R.James and H.P,Lovecraft - and discovered the latter while living in that house. I have no doubt that my experiences of that house were certainly filtered through the lens of my rather Fortean interests it must be said!

    We have a thread on the big/small psychological thing which you might enjoy. I reread it every few months, it fascinates me.

    You need to come out of your shell a bit.

    The coloured glass could be symbolic of stained glass church windows, and the undiscovered rooms could be symbolic of spirituality in general, so perhaps your subconscious is telling you to get some spiritual depth into your life, not necessarily by going to church (I don't go myself) but by cultivating a more unworldly mindset?

    Yes, I love that dream too. :nods: It is not always the same house/rooms for me though it sometimes is.

    My favoured dream theory is that all dreams are about oneself, and our subconscious is certainly clever enough to show us ourselves as buildings.

    The stained glass in my dream building is nothing to do with churches. It's often seen in elegant Art Nouveau architecture which I very much admire. My ideal home would be a nicely-aged AN medium-sized country house.

    I frequently have this kind of dream and have done for years. Sometimes forgotten doors lead to store rooms that become museums, undiscovered gardens, and all sorts.

    Rich pickings for some psychotherapist, I'm sure.

    Clearly we need to bring back corporal punishment for houses. When they play tricks like this they need a damn good spanking!

    Especially the ones that cheat justice by being imaginary, but what can you do?

    There's probably no more unwordly mindset than mine. ;)

    Fascinating, I looked at your profile to find out what belief wagon you've hitched your horses to but it's a blank, just like everybody elses; even mine is blank despite me having filled it in with basic details, perhaps I'm not clicking the right buttons or something.

    There's nothing to report. I'm not materialistic or interested in appearances. WYSIWYG, no hidden depths, all very boring.

    I was raised a half-hearted Methodist so stained glass played no part in my upbringing. It has secular connotations, of art and beauty, for me.
