The meaning of Dungeon in dream | Dream interpretation

(see Cage, Castle, Underground)

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

Various types of dungeon, prison or jail are common dream settings and they appear at times when something or someone in your life is restricting your sense of freedom.

If you have such a dream, your dreaming mind is urging you to consider whether your loss of freedom is self-enforced; it is urging you to be honest with yourself about the causes and cost of being imprisoned. Such dreams may also symbolize a deep-rooted feeling that you are not able to fully express yourself. When someone else is seen in prison, this refers to a part of yourself that you are unable to reveal to others and even to yourself. When someone is released from prison in your dream, it signifies changes that may have taken place within your life. It is also a sign that you will overcome obstacles that may be holding you back at the moment.

An obstacle dream.

If you couldn’t get out, you would probably benefit from a change of plans, but if you managed to escape, you can expect to achieve your aims in time but only by diligent effort

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

To dream of being in a dungeon, foretells for you struggles with the vital affairs of life but by wise dealing you will disenthrall yourself of obstacles and the designs of enemies.

For a woman this is a dark foreboding; by her wilful indiscretion she will lose her position among honorable people.

To see a dungeon lighted up, portends that you are threatened with entanglements of which your better judgment warns you.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Dreams of a dungeon symbolize your unexplored subconscious, shadow side, unintegrated aspects of your consciousness. There is a great deal of unintegrated power, wisdom and talent that you have yet to uncover. See Basement, Shadow, Goddess Persephone and Dragon.

Dream Symbols and Analysis | DreamForth

A place of desolation and abuse that is revealed in order to warn one to avert the situation

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

You are tapping into unconscious negative beliefs. Dungeons are places of torture and imprisonment, and they correlate with deeply hidden and unconscious thoughts and fears. They were a place where people were kept locked up and tortured; therefore a dungeon is the part of the shadow where our most frightening ideas and thoughts create ongoing and unimaginable levels of suffering and pain. There is a sexual element to this image that connects to the fetishistic desire to dominate or be submissive in sexual role play.

A dungeon in this case need not be a fear-inspiring dark and dreary place, but rather a private place possessing the appropriate equipment to facilitate the activities associated with such sex play.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

Being in a dungeon symbolizes being a prisoner, Isa. 42:7

Physical matters, as with any structure. Note the condition of each portion of the castle and its relationship to your body (see Body, Car).

The Language of Dreams


(1) A fight may represent conflict in a real-life domestic or work situation.

(2) The conflict may be within you, between opposed forces in the psyche. An obvious candidate is a clash between what you want to do and what you feel you ought to do. In this case, bear in mind that conscience is usually socially constructed and consists of the prohibitions and ideals that were imprinted in your psyche in your early years. Conflict between society’s moral demands and the individual’s wants or natural needs is probably at least as old as human history, and perhaps there is no complete solution: some degree of compromise may be inevitable. Do not assume, however, that social norms are always right. It may be that your conscience (super-ego) is an unreasonably severe one, perhaps the product of severe restraints in early childhood or a repressive religious upbringing. In any case, the conflict needs to be sorted out, and quite often this means allowing natural drives a little more expression.

(3) The conflict may be between what we are in fact and what we are potentially. Jung sees conscience as the voice of an inner wisdom that will lead us to our true selfhood. vSeen in this way, conscience keeps conflict alive in the psyche, not only between social morals and inner wisdom, but also between the actual conscious ego and the fully developed and integrated self. It would seem that the only satisfactory way out of these conflicts is to accept your ‘destiny’ - by which I mean, not some fate over which you have no control, but Nature’s plan for you, reflected in your fundamental individual constitution and offering the greatest possible self-fulfilment if you will only go along with it.

(4) If the conflict symbolized is between conscious ego and unconscious, the aggressor in the dream fight will probably represent the part of you that is demanding release from the dungeons of the unconscious. It will not hurt you unless you deny it expression. Identify it, and then welcome it as a talent or energy that can contribute to your well-being. Change the conflict into a dialogue, a respectful exchange between your conscious mind and your unconscious.

NB Where there is an unresolved inner conflict, there is a tendency to project the unconscious protagonist on to other people, often with dire consequences in personal relationships.

(5) More specific inner conflicts are those between opposite psychic qualities or forces, such as masculinity and femininity, thinking and feeling. (On ‘superior5 and ‘inferior5 functions) See also Brother / Sister, section (4).... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

To be living in a house in your dream, even one that isn’t at all like your home, also represents yourself. Jung once called the house the‘mansion of the soul’, and most dream analysts believe that houses in dreams become holistic symbols of yourself; your mind, body, spirit and your past, present and future.

If you were buying or building a house in your dream, perhaps you are considering making a dramatic change to your life, even to the extent of rebuilding it.

If your dreams focus on paying the rent or the mortgage and this isn’t a problem in waking life, then they are highlighting a responsibility in waking life that you find a burden. An abandoned house in disrepair may suggest emotional and physical neglect, whilst a house that is shuttered up might suggest being blind to what is going on around you. Dreams of an unfinished house should motivate rather than be a cause of despair, as life is a constant work-in-progress. A half-built house suggests what you need to acquire to further your personal development; perhaps more windows to give you a better perspective. A damaged blind or broken lock in your dream can highlight lack of privacy or your perceived vulnerability. A house in bad repair can denote the need to heal a family rift.

Even the most bizarre dream homes reflect the psychological territory you are living in right now, even if that‘home’ is a medieval dungeon, a tropical island, a prisoner-of-war camp or a train station.

If you dreamed of living in a bizarre or fictional setting, consider the condition and qualities of that situation. Is it cramped, crowded or lonely? Your new dream home can give you valuable information about how your current circumstances are affecting you and how you relate to others.

If you are restricted or limited in your dream territory, ask yourself if you are creating those restrictions by your reaction or if the situation is creating it. To see an old, run-down house in your dream represents your old beliefs, attitudes and how you used to think or feel. A situation in your current life may be bringing about those same old attitudes and feelings. Alternatively, the old house may symbolize your need to update your mode of thinking.

If your dream house is unfurnished, this may suggest a bleak self, devoid of feeling; an empty house, however, may indicate new opportunities.

To dream of a haunted house signifies unfinished emotional business, related to your childhood family, dead relatives, or repressed memories and feelings. To see a glass house in your dream signifies that appearances in waking life may be deceptive. To dream that you are living in a glass house signifies the threatened loss of your reputation. To see a mansion in your dream suggests that you need to grow in some way or other; if servants are waiting on you, this indicates undue vanity. You may feel that your current situation or relationship is in a rut and want to expand and develop your potential.

If you see yourself living in a cottage, this signifies a longing for a gentler more spontaneous way of life.

An ancient house could refer to a previous life in some way connected with your present existence.

If you are living in a tent or mobile caravan in your dream, do you feel weighed down by the routine of your life? Would you like to travel, move house, get back to nature or try the life of a nomad for a while? If you imagine your house is in amongst skyscrapers in the city, this suggests a preoccupation with financial matters, perhaps at the expense of your personal life. The opposite is true if your house is in a village in your dream.

Whether your dream home is an igloo or a mansion, pay attention to the details of the dream as it will be like a documentary featuring the interaction of your past beliefs, current challenges and recent situations.

If you don’t like what you see, it is important to understand that you are in charge of your life; sometimes making small changes may be all that is needed to bring big results. Ancient dream-lore has many interpretations for dreams about houses and homes but here are the most typical: country house, tranquility ahead; building a house, you will be self-confident; new house, a busy social life; empty house, low income; moving house, worries about money....
