There's been a theme in my dreamscape of ghost stories..of moving in or purchasing an abandoned house, and there's something bad in there. Something overwhelmingly bad in a bad vibey way. Generally I want to not be in there, and generally I wake up screaming. Which is to say that this isn't a common dream because I don't wake up screaming all that often...though from recent commentary, I wonder how often I am agitated in my sleep.

Houses generally represent us/our psyches. This site has some interesting ideas..

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 you mode of thinking.

..To dream of a haunted house signifies unfinished emotional business, related to your childhood family, dead relatives, or repressed memories and feelings.

The ghosts in my dreams are angry, angry things. Taking all things into account, and that my ghost dreams have spanned the past several years, that makes a fair bit of sense. Usually the houses are reminiscent of ones I've seen in Germantown, PA - a bit away from the road, down a bit of a slope, made of stone and shingled in wood or slate, surrounded by trees. Looks cooled by the forest but too shady to allow much growth around it. And always empty for too long, with a ghostly inhabitant that doesn't want anyone else within the walls.

Usually I'm with a small group to begin with, and they don't see/feel a problem. Sometimes I end up going back alone, and that's when the ghost is at its worst.

Last night I had a ghost dream wherein I moved into a house and my bedroom was the kitchen, with my mattress literally on the stove. (I don't generally go much for other people's dream interpretations, but the above website says about kitchens: To see a kitchen in your dream signifies your need for warmth, spiritual nourishment and healing. It may also be symbolic of the nurturing mother or the way that you are for your loved ones. Alternatively the kitchen represents a transformation. Something new or life altering is about to occur. That rather fits..)

There was a laptop computer with text covering the screen - I ignored it at first, then realized it had been written by the ghost. Details have faded, but..not a happy ghost,and yet not as angry a ghost as the past ones have been. But a ghost that wanted to become flesh again.

I was very concerned, and I realized the ghost had been answering questions we'd been asking though we'd not seen the typed out answers. Then the ghost was also texting me, twice. (Two is an interesting number - "Number 2 is the most sensitive of all numbers." made me laugh.

Anyway. I took this data and looked for my mom, wanting to show it to her, hoping she'd believe and hear me..which she did. (Seeing her sitting on a mattress, wearing her glasses and ready to analyze made me miss her a lot.) We started going through the data and trying to figure out what the best response would be.

I don't know who or what the ghost is, exactly. I feel like it's facets of things in my psyche. I woke up disturbed but not panicked/screaming, which is Of The Good...though odd to wake up in the middle of the night, as generally once I'm out, I'm out until 6AM. If the ghost is symbolizing emotion or perhaps mental demons, I'd much rather be in a mental/emotional position where I'm able to communicate and be rational, work through the message.
