Crumbled: The destruction of hopes with little warning.
An alternative type of bridge dream, in which movement from one side of the archway to the other marks a transition (see Directions).

Your dream childhood home can help give you clues about your current situation and help you examine your personality. What kind of house was it? Was it a large or small house, and did you think it was the same size when you were young? Are you still living in the same house? How many floors did it have? How many windows? What was its shape? Most of us live in square houses with corners, but some people’s houses are round with no corners. Some suggest this may have a profound effect on a person’s psychology because circles represent infinity and thus no restrictions. Can you remember what colors your house was painted in; how do those colors affect your feelings now? If something good always happened to you in a certain room, the color of that room may still make you happy for the rest of your life. Was there a place in your house where you went if you were miserable, or a place where something bad happened? What were the colors and shapes that were involved? Is it a dark place or a light place?
Although you are by no means doomed to repeat past mistakes, your dreaming mind may use your first home as an important reference throughout your life and you may often find yourself trying to work through current issues in the setting of this childhood home. Try to think of such dreams as an opportunity to reflect on your basic beliefs about home and family. Are you repeating patterns from your childhood in a current relationship and situation? Can your dream help you relate the past to your present life and to your life in the future?... The Element Encyclopedia

The entrance was difficult to find, but I had discovered it many years before and been in lots of times. I found objects in the cellar and was looking for something’ (Tony C). Usually, as in the example, to discover, realise, become aware of some aspect of oneself and gain access to or use of. One might be living with constant resentments about one’s past or present situation, and then ‘find’ release from this for a day, yet not be conscious how it was achieved.
The dream might attempt to define this. Or it might be a new idea you realise unconsciously in sleep.
Example: Then I was with my father (dead) and was showing him a handful of exotic banknotes I had found in the building. They were £100 notes. I wasn’t sure if the money was legal tender or not.
The notes had an unusual design’ (Andy). Andy has found a sense of his own value—the money —but is not sure if other people also value him.
The dream illustrates the attempt to ‘find a place* in society.
The effort to search and find is frequently to do with one’s own identity, and what one is searching through is one’s experience, as in Tony’s cellar above, or this example: l was looking into the crowd in the film to find me and it was like looking at a snapshot, it felt very important that I find me, I saw my green slacks just showing, right at the back of the crowd’ (Trudy K).

A dream of walking through a long hallway or corridor can also represents your frustration in trying to escape a repetitive situation.... My Dream Interpretation
It is important to analyze all the elements that appear throughout the corridor because they reflect the dreamer’s emotional state at the time of transit. However, the final key is the feeling that you have as you follow the path into the unknown. Running along a corridor without ever seeing the end may show the need to escape from a distressing situation that is repeated too often in reality. Also, it may refer to the attitudes that you must leave behind to pass from one life stage to another. Corridors and passages are places where energy is moving rapidly but never accumulates.

Generally, one’s basic needs such as shelter, warmth, nourishment—but usually in the sense of what we have created as our basic way of life; the values, standards, goals we have accepted as normal, or are ‘at home’ with; as in the example, the situation or state in our home, which here means family atmosphere.
Example: ‘I am walking down a busy street when I realise that all I have on are my bra and pants. Everyone is staring at me and I try to appear unconcerned but feel more and more embarrassed as I go on. Eventually the street and the people fade and I am alone in my own home and a great sensation of relief comes over me. I do not bother to put any more clothes on but wander about the house secure in the comfort people are no longer looking at me’ (Mrs S C). Here home is the sense of being oneself, or absence of concern over other people’s criticism.
In a past home: depicts the part of our character or experience which developed in that home environment. Someone else’s home: what we sense as the attitudes and atmosphere or the situation prevailing in that home.

Dream homes say very little about your real-life residence; instead, they say a great deal about your present circumstances, your perspective on life and the challenges you are currently facing. According to Jung, all of your experiences, stages of development, and parts of your conscious and unconscious life may be represented by dream homes. When trying to analyze the house in your dream, consider how it is kept and its condition, color and shape. The rooms in the house relate to facets of your personality and experience. Many people are amazed at the detail of their dream home. From the wallpaper patterns to the position of the dining room table, every detail seems planned and almost familiar, even though it may bear little or no resemblance to their real-life home. So when a dream shows you living in a particular home or setting, your dreaming mind is letting you know this is where you are coming from right now and this is how things are affecting you.
Dreams of being at home also suggest returning to a place in which you feel safe, a sanctuary where you can be yourself without fear of reprisal. Spiritualists speak of going home when they are approaching death, as they believe the physical state is a temporary one. See alsoBUILDINGS.
Your Dream House... The Element Encyclopedia
If your dream house represents yourself, what did your dream tell you about your foundations and structure? Were they sturdy and able to withstand bad conditions, or were they in danger of collapsing?
If your home is damaged in your dream, first consider whether you are worried about the condition of your home in real life; if you find that you are not worried about it all as you have just had a positive surveyor’s report, then consider the dream’s symbolic meaning.
If the walls or fences were damaged, this would allow outside elements to get through, so perhaps you feel vulnerable or undermined in waking life. Broken doors also indicate vulnerability and an inability to maintain boundaries. Broken windows leave you open to intruders and may affect your view of things.
Houses in dreams often represent parts of your mind or personality, so if you dream of leaving your current home to live in another house, this simply reflects your awareness of different parts of your personality. Maybe you have been moving from one part of yourself to another, trying out different aspects of yourself? Maybe you are trying to decide who you really are? To dream that your house is broken into suggests that you are feeling violated. It may refer to a particular relationship or current situation in your life. Alternatively, it indicates that some unconscious material is attempting to make itself known, because some aspects of yourself have been denied.
If your dream home is burgled, this may symbolize something you valued that has been taken away from you, leaving you feeling violated. Are you taking care of all of your valuables in your life, including yourself? Is someone trying to breach your personal defenses?... The Element Encyclopedia
If the home itself, is in a dilapidated condition and general neglect, this then is an omen that you will soon hear of the death of a close relative or a very dear friend.

Whitewash may represent your attempts to cover up something that causes you embarrassment, whether relating to your own feelings of guilt or your suspicion that others are not what they seem. Clearing or laying down new paths or foundations may relate to new approaches to life.
If household breakages feature in your dream this may represent flawed ideas. A cracked cup can symbolize lost love. A dream of breaking things in the house may suggest anger or despair.
Dreams of housework in general suggest keeping your internal house in order, perhaps by taking time to clarify or define motives, opinions and feelings about others; they also stand for the cleaning out of non-functional or negative attitudes, thoughts and experiences. To dream that you are cleaning your house with a broom or dustpan and brush signifies your need to clear out your thoughts and get rid of old ways. You are seeking self-improvement.
If you, or a cleaner, are cleaning, this may also recall memories of your mother. Alternatively, the house being cleaned may symbolize the self and a need to give extra care and attention to neglected aspects of your personality.
When compared with sweeping up, vacuum cleaning suggests both a definite desire to do away once and for all with the effects of a past action, and a definite desire to move on and put the past behind you.
To dream of cleaning windows suggests that you are trying to get a clearer view of the world around you. Using a washing machine may suggest it is time to confront old issues that are destroying your peace of mind. The water may also point to deep-seated childhood issues that need to come out in the wash. Hanging your clothes out to dry may suggest a yearning for the lost innocence of childhood or a desire for uninhibited sexuality.
If you are washing the dishes in your dream kitchen, this may suggest a desire to wash away feelings of shame or disgust, or a wish to deny responsibility for something.... The Element Encyclopedia

A stairway in a dream also could represent the days of one’s life and their term.
If one sees a staircase which he recognizes in the dream, it could represent the servant of a house, its owner, or its accountant.
If a sick person sees himself climbing an unknown staircase which is leading him to the upper room from where he can see paradise in the dream, it means that he may die from his illness and reach what he saw.
If obstacles hinder his way or impede his climb in the dream, it means that he is detained, and the immediate blessings of such a gift will be veiled to him. Descending a staircase in a dream means arriving from a journey, resigning from one’sjob, impeachment, or it could represent a pedestrian.
If one’s descent leads him to his family, house, or farmland in the dream, it means money.
If what he reaches at the end of the staircase is unknown, and if one meets people, or souls he does not recognize in the dream, it also denotes what we have earlier explained.
If during one’s climb or descent he falls into a well, or if a giant bird grabs him and flies away with him, or if a beast devours him, or if he steps into a boat that sails away as he steps into it, or if he takes a step to find himself riding an animal, or a vehicle of some type, the staircase then represents the stages of one’s life and what he encountered during the journey of his life, all replayed or screened before his eyes at the point of descending into his grave, or as a book one reads after his death.
If he does wake up and finds himself healthy and fit, it means that he will become a tyrant, an unjust person, an atheist and a reprobate.
If one sees himself descending a staircase that leads him into a mosque, lush foliage, green fields, a fresh breeze of spring, or into a pond to take a ritual ablution to perform his prayers in the dream, it means that he will become a true believer, repent for his his sins and abandon his blameworthy conduct. Otherwise, ifhe descends upon adverse elements such as snakes,lions, steep hills, corpses, or a field of scattered remains in a dream, then it represents major trials and adversities.
If the steps are made of clay in one’s dream, they indicate positive signs. However, a stairway could be regarded as unfavorable if its steps are made of backed bricks.
If they are made of stones in the dream, they mean business success, along with a heart like a stone.
If the staircase is made of wooden steps in the dream, it means reaching a high rank which is compounded with hypocrisy. Ifthey are made of gold in the dream, then they mean achieving success and gaining authority.
If they are made of silver in the dream, they represent one’s entourage and attendants. Climbing a staircase in a dream also means sharpening one’s intellect and awareness. In a dream, a stairway is also interpreted to mean leading a life of ascetic detachment and devotion. Coming near a staircase in a dream also means attaining success and a growing piety. Each step represents a different station. Climbing a staircase in a dream also represents the dangers one may have to cross. Seeing a staircase with five steps in a dream represents the five time prayers, or the pulpit where the Imam stands to deliver his Friday sermon. That is why some interpreters qualify the staircase in one’s dream as glad tidings, good news, prayers, charity, alms giving, fasting, or a pilgrimage. God knows best.... Islamic Dream Interpretation
If you regularly use the subway, you may need to look at the other parts of the dream more carefully.
If the subway is not a regular part of your daily routine but is the primary dream image then you can consider it to be symbolic of the way that you navigate through your own emotions and hidden parts of self.
The subway is under the ground and represents the unconscious parts of self. All of us interact on conscious and unconscious levels. We have intuitive feelings and unspoken understanding that direct our lives as much as the obvious and fully conscious things. Consider the subway ride in your dream and try to understand what it is conveying to you about your more subtle navigation through ongoing life experiences. See also: Train...
