A dream of being at a chalet suggests that you need to relax and not push yourself so hard.
If the chalet was very luxurious, this is lucky and means fortune will be kind to you. However, it was old or run down, you could have trouble succeeding in a current project.... My Dream Interpretation
Important here is how you categorize this object: Mug, Goblet, Glass, or even Grail. Different terms refer to different moods and points of view and lead to different interpretations.
If seen as a chalice, it always indicates something extraordinary (it is not just a simple mug or a glass used every day!). It may either represent suffering or death (the “hemlock cup” of antiquity, for example) or the search for a higher goal (legend of the Grail and the magnificent interpretation by Emma Jung in her book The Legend of the Grail As Seen in Depth Psychology).
A chalice holds the liquid that is the equivalent of our emotions and needs.
The image of the chalice implies that these emotions and needs are spiritual in nature. Figuratively speaking, it is a matter of nurturing the soul and cultivating the emotions. That was precisely the task of the search for the Grail in the Middle Ages. In Christianity, the chalice is connected with the heart and blood of Christ.... Little Giant Encyclopedia
1- In dreams the chalice represents the feminine. Because of its religious significance, the chalice usually represents something that may seem to be unattainable except without a great deal of effort. It can also represent an important event or ceremony (see Cup).

(1) This may be a symbol of the self - that is, the total and ordered psvehc. The silver or gold of the chalice represents the supreme value of the self (as in the holy grail sought by King Arthur and his knights).
(2) Is the wine in the chalice, rather than the chalice itself, given the limelight in your dream? Red wine may be a symbol of life (blood) and fullness of life (water turned into wine represents an enrichment of life).

Alternative womb and fertility symbol, especially if filled with liquid (see Milk, Juice, Water, Wine).
Arthurian and Druidical lore identify this emblem as the grail, the cup that signifies humankind’s connection with nature and each other.
Christian: The sacredness of life and the quality of forgiveness (the cup of Christ’s blood). In this case, do you drink freely of what’s offered you, or pour it away?
Unity. In Gypsy, pagan, and Hebrew marriage and courtship rites, people drinking from one cup link their destinies and become as one.
Refusing: Wishing to avert a personal trial that is really unavoidable (note the story of Christ in the garden of Gethsemane). Alternatively, rejecting an opportunity for friendship or camaraderie because of suspicious motivations.
In Eastern philosophy, a cup is shaped by what it contains. What metaphorical beverages do you incorporate into yourself by drinking of this cup?... The Language of Dreams

Vision: Dreaming about blue eyes: either somebody is secretly in love with you or you are secredy in love with someone. Dark or brown eyes: prepare yourself for a disappointing romance. Dreaming about an eye illness (eye patch, eye injury, or blindness): you are unable to see a situation in your life clearly, or you have a problem facing the real truth.
An eye patch indicates that you can do your job even with your eyes closed! Visiting or seeing an ophthalmologist: you will soon see things as they really are. See Cross-eyed.
Depth Psychology: Dreaming about eyes means you are too preoccupied with yourself.
The eye is considered the organ of light. Dreaming about eyes always has something to do with understanding life. Dreaming about an eye that is looking at you might be a warning from your conscience. Eyes by themselves are symbols of intelligence, spirit, alertness, and curiosity. Other events in the dream are important here.... Dreamers Dictionary
Example: ‘I could see an older woman watching me from the road. I felt very scared at her being there. I walked to the front door, I started to walk past the front door, felt great fear and hung back, half behind the front door, for protection from her’ (Pamela H). Generally it means pan of; divided; incomplete; in between, conflict. Half open: opposing feelings about whether to be open’ or not—can I, can’t I, will I, won’t I? Halfway up/down: indecision; faltering motivation; sometimes between the opposites, or outside one’s everyday experience. Half full : may refer to half one’s life used up. Cut in half: conflict between intellect and body sexuality. Half buried: something you are only partly aware of. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
1- Dreams can often have a very peculiar quality in that our image may only be half there or we perhaps only experience half an action. This usually indicates an incompleteness in us, being a sort of in-between state which means that we have to make decisions. Often it is about either going forward into the future or back into the past: completion or non- completion.
For instance, we may have half-completed a task and be aware of this, but do not know how to finish it. Often the dream images that appear can show us how to do this. Conversely, if in a dream we have only partially completed a task and are left feeling dissatisfied with what has happened, we perhaps need to consider in waking life what needs to be done to enable us to complete the action in the dream. What would we have done had we been able to complete it?
2- To have only half of what we feel we should have - for instance in quantity perhaps only to have half of the food or drink we had expected, indicates that we are possibly selling ourselves short. We are not allowing ourselves to have what we need.
To dream of being half way up a hill or a mountain or halfway down a river would indicate that there is some indecision. We are not as motivated as we should, or could, be to continue with the task we have in hand. We have made an initial effort but greater effort is needed in order to be where we want to be. This type of dream is very often to do with either motivating ourselves or others.
To continually dream of slipping back, until we are only halfway through our task, to be repeating it over and over again, would indicate that we do not have the ability to complete it. There is perhaps an extra skill that we need to enable us to achieve success.
3- A degree of spiritual indecision is also indicated here.

Public or dance hall: how you relate to groups or the public; meeting sexuality, a place of initiation, maturing beyond old habits, ways of life and views—perhaps because civic ceremonies such as marriage, trials, social rewards, take place in hall-like environments.
Hallway: the way one meets other people or allows them into one’s life or intimacy, the receptive female reproductive function, connecting link with aspects of oneself. Example: ‘I find myself in the entrance hall of a very large house.
The hall is very large with curved staircases at either side meeting at the top to form a balcony. There is nobody about and I am frightened. I stan to walk up the stairs but then find myself hiding in the roof with very little space above my body’ (Mrs B).
The hall is probably Mrs B’s childbearing ability and her image of herself as a woman.
The words ‘little space above my body’ suggest her main area of life has always been her childbearing function or physical attractiveness as a woman, and she had not developed her mental self. See also corridor; white under colour. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
The portent of the dream varies according to the aspect of the hall.

If you dreamed of attending a Halloween party where everyone was in costume except you, this is a warning against false friends.

If Hallowe’en figures in your dream in some way, this illustrates personal revelations or dramatic insights into yourself or someone else. Hallowe’en—also known as All Hallow’s Eve—is the night when witches, ghosts and spirits are believed to walk the earth and reveal themselves; so is there something in waking life you need to reveal or come to terms with? Observed annually on the night of 31 October and originally a pagan festival of the dead, Hallowe’en is celebrated today as a night of fancy dress, trick or treating, and superstitious fun and games. Wiccans and pagans, however, observe All Hallow’s Eve (also known as Sanhain) as one of their most important sacred days. For them it is a time to honor the dead, communicate with spirits and observe rituals. It is also thought to be a particularly good time to make a fresh start and commence new projects. So if Hallowe’en images float into your dream, perhaps your dream is urging you to do just that.... The Element Encyclopedia

To have a hallucination in your dream symbolizes repressed emotions and feelings that you do not want to confront. Your dream could be telling you to be more alert and to express yourself more clearly. Alternatively, it refers to self-deception. What are you trying to hide?... My Dream Interpretation
Hallucinations can occur quite naturally without the use of psychotropic drugs such as peyote or LSD. We all have the innate ability to suffer from hallucinations and, according to Freud, one of the definitions of a dream is precisely its hallucinogenic quality. Whilst asleep, we can create full sensory, vocal and emotional experiences in our dreams that most of us believe are real at the time. A waking hallucination is merely an experience of a dream occurring with our eyes open. The voices heard and images seen, although appearing outside of us, are no more exterior than the images in our dreams.
The hypnagogic state is that state between being awake and falling asleep during which the mind is most receptive to ideas, images, sounds, feelings, impressions and intuition. It also the time when people are most likely to see ghostlike figures. (It should not be confused with the hypnopompic state, which is a transition state of semi-consciousness between sleeping and waking.) Some dream experts believe that the sketchy imagery typical of these states can be helpful to the individual in terms of self-understanding. Images are often presented through the individual’s own set of symbols and once interpreted symbols can provide answers to problems and even alert one to future events.
Some believe that taking the time to record these images, feelings and sounds can be just as helpful as recording dream imagery.... The Element Encyclopedia
1- When dreaming, there is an hallucinatory quality about everything that we see. We usually accept what we experience as real and in the actual dream state do not question. Scenes can change as quickly as the blink of an eye, faces can change, we can be looking at one thing then a few seconds later realise we are looking at something completely different. This is totally acceptable within the dream reality.
It is only when we consider the dream afterwards that we realise how odd this may be. During dreams, things can take on qualities of other objects and of other feelings. Dreams can crcate a reality of their own, they do the unexpected - which in normal waking life would be totally illogical and surreal. Within this dream world we need to take a note of what is happening. We do not watch these with amusement, it seems simply that we observe what is going on. Even our own actions can take on an oddness. We may be doing things in a dream which in waking life we would never expect ourselves to do. Freed from the logical quality that mentors our ordinary everyday life, we can be liberated to create a totally different awareness of our own abilities, of our thought patterns and even our own past. We can often dream that we have done things in the past which we have never done, or we can prepare ourselves to do things in the future which again we would never expect to do.
2- Psychologically freeing the mind so it can ‘roam’ under its own speed allows hidden memories, images and thoughts to surface in such a way that we can handle the input when perhaps in real life we may not have been able to do so. We create a reality which suits an action, rather than creating an action which suits the reality.
For instance, an abused child may displace the activity into some kind of response that would be acceptable, not allowing the reality of the abuse to come through until such times as he or she was able to come to terms with it.
3- The hallucination that we experience in dreams can also be direct messages from the unconscious.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
Example: ‘1 dream insects are dropping either on me from the ceiling of our bedroom, or crawling over my pillow. My long-suffering husband is always woken when I sit bolt upright in bed, my eyes wide open and my arm pointing at the ceiling. I try to brush them off. I can still see them—spiders or woodlice. I am now well aware it is a dream. But no matter how hard I stare the insects are there in perfect detail. I am not frightened, but wish it would go away’ (Sue D). Sue’s dream only became a hallucination when she opened her eyes and continued to see the insects in perfect clarity.
A hallucination can be experienced through any of the senses singly, or all of them together. So one might have a hallucinatory smell or sound.
To understand hallucinations, which are quite common without any use of drugs such as alcohol, LSD or cannabis, one must remember that everyone has the natural ability to produce such images. One of the definitions of a dream according to Freud is its hallucinatory quality. While asleep we can create full sensory, vocal, motor and emotional expenence in our dream. While dreaming we usually accept what we experience as real.
A hallucination is an experience of the function which produces dreams’ occurring while we have our eyes open.
The voices heard, people seen, smells smelt, although appearing to be outside us, are no more exterior than the things and images of our dreams. With this information one can understand that much classed as psychic phenomena and religious experience is an encounter with the dream process. That does not, of course, deny its imponance.
There are probably many reasons why Sue should experience a hallucination and her husband not. One might be that powerful drives and emotions might be pushing for attention in her life. Some of the primary drives are the reproductive drive, urge towards independence, pressure to meet unconscious emotions and past trauma and fears, any of which, in order to achieve their ends, can produce hallucinations.
A hallucination is therefore not an ‘illusion’ but a means of giving information from deeper levels of self. Given such names as mediumship or mystical insight, in some cultures or individuals the ability to hallucinate is often rewarded socially.
Drugs such as LSD, cannabis, psilocybin, mescaline, pey- ote and opium can produce hallucinations. This is sometimes because they allow the dream process to break through into consciousness with less intervention.
If this occurs without warning it can be very disturbing.
The very real dangers are that unconscious content, which in ordinary dreaming breaks through a threshold in a regulated way, emerges with little regulation. Fears, paranoid feelings, past traumas, can emerge into the consciousness of an individual who has no skill in handling such dangerous forces. Because the propensity of the unconscious is to create images, an area of emotion might emerge in an image such as the devil. Such images, and the power they contain, not being integrated in a proper therapeutic setting, may haunt the individual, perhaps for years. Even at a much milder level, elements of the unconscious will emerge and disrupt the person’s ability to appraise reality and make judgments. Unacknowledged fears may lead the drug user to rationalise their reasons for avoiding social activity or the world of work. See ESP and dreams; dead lover in husband under family.

It indicates a state of transition. The dream may be pleasant or terrifying, depending on how fluid or winding the way is and the existence or lack of light at the end of the hall.
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. This dream, therefore, may denote that we are in danger of losing all our energy and vitality.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

In addition to masculine sexuality, the phallus represents life’s creative force.
It is a symbol of energy and power. A phallus in dreams indicates a time of high creativity.
If a woman sees herself with a phallus, the dream indicates that she wants to develop her masculine side. Similarly, if a man dreams of an unknown woman with a phallus, he may feel like highlighting his feminine side.
The phallus is the representation of all things masculine, bright, and Yang. Symbol of fertility, regeneration, power, and immortality, to many ethnic groups and tribes the phallus is the most commonly worshipped symbol. The ancient cave paintings found in Australia, Senegal, Niger, France, China, Japan, and India contain drawings of human reproductive systems. They prove the power of this symbol. Similarly, the Romans used phallic charms to ward off evil spirits. Furthermore, the god Priapus was represented as a large phallus with human face. Other Mexican peoples worshiped a winged serpent and the Hindus still pay homage to Shiva, a phallic emblem. On the other hand, the favorite deity in China is Shoulao, the god of longevity. This god has an enormous and elongated bald head like a phallus. For some traditions, dreaming of your own phallus predicts transient wealth, because it grows and shrinks. It can also denote secret projects, poverty, and captivity.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

As I was staring in amazement they began to transform themselves and come up out of the water as three giant Viking-like figures. They were so huge that the water came up only to their knees and everything was moving so slowly, as they waded towards me. It was the most awe inspiring thing I had ever seen in my life’ (Sue B).
