My House Burned Down

Have you had any crazy or scary dreams? Did you believe in dream interpretation?

A few nights ago, I had a dream that my house was on fire. In the dream, I was asleep and the strong smell of smoke woke me. I bolted out of bed, yelling to my fiance to get up. Running down the long hallway, I could feel the heat on my skin. The kitchen had a bright orange glow and I had to dodge flames as I ran past it. As I ran, I yelled for my son to wake up. I got to my son’s room and shook him awake. We then ran back down the hallway, past the growing fire, to the front door. My fiance had the car keys and the dogs on their leashes. We ran outside to the car and we all jumped inside. We drove down the block and I called 911. That is when I woke up.

I could feel the heat and taste the smoke

It sounds more like a nightmare doesn’t it? In the dream I could feel the heat and taste the smoke. I remember feeling panicked. The strange thing is when I woke up, I did not feel frightened or sad. I did wonder what it all meant. Although I have had my share of scary and odd dreams, I have never been one to follow up on the meaning of dreams. But this time I was curious because this dream is one that I have had a few times over the last six months. I decided to find out what it meant.

Instead of being scared by my house burning down, I am inspired

I visited several dream websites, all which said basically the same thing. When you dream about your house on fire it indicates a transformation, passion, anger, or enlightenment. The distinct meaning depends on the context of your dream. Since things have been going pretty well lately and I have not been feeling angry I think this dream was more of a transformational message. I found this interesting because that is how more in line with how I have been feeling. I am in the process of changing my life, hopefully for the better. Getting back into writing and starting this blog is part of my transformation. I have wanted to do this for a long time and it is finally starting to happen. Instead of being scared by my house burning down, I am inspired.
