It is during childhood that we learn many of the fundamental rules and responsibilities of life. It is also the time when we develop our personalities and become increasingly socialized. It makes sense, therefore, that dreams of revisiting a place or a scenario from your own childhood often focus on lessons that you learned, or failed to learn, and these lessons may be relevant to your current situation.
If you dreamed of a particularly happy childhood memory—for example, you are seven years old and your dad brings home your first bike, or you are five years old sitting happily on your mum’s lap sucking your thumb—the dream could either be pointing to your nostalgia for a time when life was full of fun, or it could be more concerned with your present feelings of insecurity. The dream is reminding you of a time when life was simple, and in so doing, it compensates you for your current feelings of confusion.
If you are facing a difficult decision, it could also have been highlighting your need to put yourself forward and take a risk by focusing on your new bike—something you wanted but also feared, as you weren’t wholly confident riding it yet.
Consider, too, whether your unconscious has cast archetypal figures in the role of your mother and father. Relation-figures in dreams of childhood can often represent archetypes rather than actual family members. Alternatively, if your unhappy childhood returns to haunt you in dreams (which may reoccur), your unconscious may be forcing you to relive those miserable times in an attempt to make you confront the source of your distress and deal with it, now that you have an adult understanding of the situation. Your unconscious is trying to help you come to terms with what happened to you, so you can put it behind you.... The Element Encyclopedia

To see a pastor in your dream, or dream that you are a pastor, suggest that you need to be more compassionate and understanding in some situation or relationship. Alternatively, it indicates that you have overstepped your boundaries and invaded another person’s rights.... My Dream Interpretation
Vision: Seeing a pastor: your constant “preaching”—or telling people what to do all the time—is making you increasingly unpopular. Being the pastor: even if it is difficult, have the courage to admit or confess to something you have done. Speaking with a pastor: you are feeling guilty about something—come clean and reduce the pressure.

To dream that you are going to visit someone’s house expresses your need to communicate yourself to others. You are interested in community activities and want to share things with those surrounding you. However, a visit could be as much as pleasure as a bore, and our dream could show you either position.

Perhaps you, or someone you know, have had a dream where you or they are absolutely convinced of a visit by a departed loved one or religious figure in your sleep. The reason for believing such a visit actually occurred may be a deep and emotional understanding about the purpose of the visit. ‘My mother wants me to know she is doing fine,’ or ‘my friend wanted me to know she did love me, even though she found it hard to show it.’ Perhaps you had a dream in which someone you know visited you to say goodbye; later you learn that they have in fact died. Was their spirit saying goodbye, or were you worried about their poor health and the dream realized those fears? If you dreamed that a spirit comforts you when you are ill is this really a spirit or a form of self comfort?
Or did you dream of someone who died of a disfiguring disease and in your dream they appear young and whole and beautiful again. Is this their spirit visiting you or your dreaming mind’s way of helping you move beyond what his pain and suffering did to your friend physically? It’s impossible to be able to prove that dream visits from those who have passed on do or do not occur. To a great extent it does not really matter. What matters is how you feel about the dream. What messages do you feel they were bringing you, and are those messages helping you heal your grief if the person who appeared in your dreams has recently died or if the person died years ago resolve issues you may have had with them in your life so you can move forward with your life?...
