Please help: Nightmare about dark basement... what does it mean???
September 13, 2008 7:41pm CST
I was approaching a house in broad daylight, it was nice, sunny, and calm. I walked to the side of the house where there were a pair of cellar doors. I opened them and entered the basement. It was dark, murky, had a rusty tint to it. I entered some sort of dark broken down bathroom that was kinda spacious and had a closet inside it. As soon as I entered, I felt like something was coming for me. I turned and something tried to get in the door behind me, I immediately screamed and held it back. I couldn't make out what it was but I knew it would be horrifying in my eyes. Soon I lost my strength and the door flung open and the figure was revealed -- a demonic woman with long hair, piercing eyes, and a patch of flesh covered her mouth as if it were a piece of mold. The ceiling light shined brightly behind her, almost obscuring my vision. I woke up saying no over and over again. What on earth does this dream mean? I've gone over and over it so many times, I know the basement has something to do with the past, but I can't figure out anything else beyond that.

Sometimes we spend to much time trying to figure out the meaning of something that really has no meaning. Now, I'm not saying that dreams have no meaning; it's just that if there was a message or meaning in some dreams such as the one you described, it would have been clear to you. Don't dwell on it because it can drive you crazy. Be patient. If there is a meaning, it will reveal itself in time. Until then, consider it free entertainment given to you by your subconscious mind.

well I read a book about interpretation about dreams and I think I could help you in some way...but as you know dreams are human way to express hidden or the subconscious in our unconscious mind...everything we dream about is sometimes a sign like what is written in the Holy Scriptures and other is somehow nonsense or just the creation of our imaginations.... Its says their you enter a house...I don't know if it's yours but house symbolizes financial security and happiness within the family... the basement there symbolizes your uncontentious that is ready to be seen and because it's dark it's really unknown or there is a fear or you will have some potential difficulties ahead if unresolve... the doors as you said it open when you entered and close when your getting out...doors means an access of your private life, it also symbolizes opportunity or option to make a choice but you said it closes so it means your not ready yet... image like scary monster demons means are fears, image of self-doubt or denial but there is a light which means a positive thing which means illumination, a vision or you are ready to accept the reality.... hope this helps I think there are something unresolve in your life that you need to fulfill or there is a secret hidden that you need to resolve...your the one who can figure this out and if you want some interpretations go to my profile and post your dreams there...tnx...

Very often, our dreams are trying to either remind us of or foretell an event that impacts our lives. The interpitation of dreams is like many other things in life. It is up for debate almost immediantly. Each person, based on their own lifes experiences will see a dream differently. However, the basement normally means a place in your mind that is sub-level Meaning it is not something that you keep close to your heart but rather hidden deep so that no one has access to it. You were able to enter through the doors because you have the means to go there. Something deep inside of you is wanting to reach the surface but you are afraid of what is waiting there for you. The femals in her ugliest image is the world. There are things in your life that challenge you daily and though the female or world is supposed to be appealing and pleasing to the eyes, your view of the world is abstructed by something that has happened. It causes you to see the world as ugly, always watching you. Her mouth is covered because she needs not to speak to you. You already know she is there. You woke before she could touch you or do anything more than frighten you. Whatever the issue is, it is something you are striving hard not to be revealed to the world and so you keep it hidden away.
