      Recurring Dream - Sneaking Back Into A Home That I Once Owned

      First, some background.

      My wife and I owned our first home for seven years. The people who sold us the house sort of did a number on us. And, the neighbors were very hostile. Living there, overall, for most of the time was pure hell. It was very tense and stressful.

      Thirteen years ago, we sold the house and moved to another state. And, we love our current home, neighbors, and community.

      Yet, for years, I continue to have the same dream about our old house - where we are sneaking back into that house, while the current owners are not there.

      Sometimes it's me and my wife. Other times it's my kids too - who were not alive when we lived there. And, sometimes it's other family members and pets as well.

      Sometimes we are sneaking in just for a few minutes - maybe just to be nosey or use the bathroom. Other times, we sneaking in for longer - to eat a meal or take a nap. And, sometimes we're in there for much longer, like overnight, or, to have a party.

      No matter who is with me or how long we are there, my feeling and sensations in the dream are the same. When we are in the house, I am in a state of fear and panic that the current owners are going to come home and find us there - or that the neighbors will spot us back in the house.

      Any idea on what this means and why I keep having his dream/nightmare repeatedly for all these years?

      To the knowledge of what i read, seems like you guys "loved" the house, but not the neighborhood. This is why you keep going back.

      hathor - actually, we didn't love or hate the house. It was just our first house. And, it was very old and had a lot of flaws - almost zero yard, a leak in the basement, bad wiring, small bedrooms. The house we are in now is much better. So, it can't be because of the house that I keep going back. But, I do appreciate the suggestion.

      Maybe it's just your subconcious thinking about that house. I really don't know why your dreaming about it when you didn't actually love or hate the house, only you know why you are having these recurring dreams. Write down dream journals and put the puzzles together, that's what i am doing now because i too have a recurring situation but only concerning 2 people i used to know.

      Reoccurring Dream => Sneaking Back Into A Haunted Home We Once Owned!

      WOW. I could have written this post myself. 4 years later and no helpful responses for Blade.
      Sorry Blade62... I can only offer my similar and crazy house dream story... and then some...

      This previous house my partner & I lived in, was possessed by it's previously deceased owners (they died there and their kids owned it). Even stuff that looked like it may have belonged to them, was seen over the years, emerging from the soil - pushing up to the surface. Much like Blade62's story, the preacher who sold me the house lied and covered up all sorts of major problems - which the inspector totally botched and missed. So needless to say, I was not pleased with the house. All sorts of weird stuff happened there at the Money Pit for 13 years. On the final day after selling it, we both got creeped out and harassed the last day we were there to close it down. Not a nice experience. So anyway, I sold the house and moved away further into the next town. But the house kept calling us back. When in the area, we found ourselves driving back to the house off and on over 12 years, parking in the drive or nearby....just to look at it. WTH? Last year it was DEMOLISHED. LOL. Our last visit was sitting in the driveway looking at a pile of dirt among the trees. Not end of story. We are still having dreams of going back - and the guilt of being caught in the house by the owners.

      Since we left 13 years ago, BOTH of us still have reoccurring dreams about the house! Not usually on the same night, but the dream is often similar with variations. We both see ourselves there when the new owner is gone - sometimes together, sometimes separate - always concerned we will get caught being in the house or on the property. 50% of the time we DO get caught by the new owner, and the outcome varies. Oftentimes I am cooking a meal there, when we get busted. He & I both often have our dead dog there with us, as well. The dream morphs into various scenarios, but the fact that we start out dreaming of a house we hated...it boggles the mind. I just had another dream about the house last night -- and THIS time, I was there cooking and got busted by (of all people) Kathy Bates! (imdb.com/name/nm0000870) It turned out well, but how weird is that!?

      << This part is better suited for a haunted house forum, but I'll add it anyway >>
      This is crazy, but an expensive piece of artwork we brought from our old house to our newly built home, still CREAKS. It started creaking about 6 months after it was purchased. It always creaked when we passed by it or spoke of -or- to it, at the old house. Otherwise, the creaking sound was not heard. And the creak was LOUD. To date, if we speak to this artwork on the wall, it actually CREAKS...as if to answer. I have moved it around in the new house, but it still creaks when we are in front of it. I once had it hanging over the bed, and whenever we would be talking -- it would start creaking.

      Time pieces in this new home are disturbing, as well. Clocks don't keep proper time AND fly off the walls. Atomic Clocks do NOT work here. I have purchased several different brands of atomic clocks at different stores, and none will connect and keep time. They are always 5-6 hours off -- and the hands start spinning at random times. My mechanical office wall clock, which is used daily, began reading ONE HOUR behind! Exactly one hour. I left it at that time for a month, to see if it was a battery problem, but no...it kept perfect time...just exactly one hour behind. Neither of us touched that clock! Just an idea of weird stuff we contend with.

      This newly built home is haunted, as well. It must be the land it sits on, as we built it and are the first owners. I researched the land and back in the early 1900's, it had a land owner's mansion with worker's housing built on the land we now occupy - which was farm land prior to the build. Other neighbors who built here, have problems as well. Like our previous home (the one in our dreams), it has both dark and light entities roaming about, impressions/visions of many decades of beings, like a 1970's dressed man and a tall dark male entity with an old top hat and a long, black flowing cape that disappears around corners -- as well as unusual crashing and banging all over the house. Things go missing and bump in the dark. We can't keep light bulbs nor electrical stuff running for long, before they begin to malfunction. I checked the electrical wiring - it's fine. Many of the light bulbs explode or go out when *I* am nearby.

      My dreams - that I remember - are usually disturbing; house dreams or otherwise. We have done smudging, house blessings, bowl ringers, seers, you name it. I now experience sleep paralysis with horrifying creatures doing unbelievable things, as well as waking up with many finger bruises on my legs and arms -- and myself & my bed linens are in complete disarray and upside down. It's almost like an alien abduction!
      << End of haunted house rant >>

      Long story short.... we just can not figure out why we continue to dream of this house -- and it is now rubble...and doesn't even exist anymore! The fact that we both have the dreams, similar in nature, makes us ponder. I understand a house dream is a representation of ourselves - but the obsession with it, even though it was unpleasant to live in, simply boggles the mind.

      We will continue our search for why this house won't go away for either of us... and what that means.

      Thanks for reading

      Here it is April 2016 - and my partner just had another dream of being at the house, with his favorite deceased cat!
      So that means the dream will follow me, next. Will report when I too, have this house dream again!

      Would love to know how/if Blade62 resolved his reoccurring dream issue!

      Exclamation Another House Dream

      (4-25-16) I had the house dream! His dream included red canvas big top awnings everywhere in the 1/4 acre back yard. Mine was a military invasion - sitting on the floor with my deceased canine, watching army guys surround the front and trying to get into the house, claiming I have something of theirs.

      The Wildest House Dream Ever!

      May 21, 2016 - I just had another dream of being at the house, only this time with my partner, no deceased pets. We were busted by the owner we sold the house to, who said, "no problem, the original owners stop in all the time." Original owners being the one I bought the house from over 2 decades ago. There were clothes all over the place in the bedroom and furniture in the house, as if someone lived there. This previous owner said he was trying to sell the place. Remember - this house was demolished several years ago! It no longer exists. Yet it still makes appearances . . .

      We were removing stuff we had brought and preparing to leave. The current owner was outside mowing the lawn. He mentioned he was on his way to Las Vegas. There was a little boy running around outside, having a conversation that was way above his age level. He was this man's son.

      This was prophetic and ominous and way beyond the previous dream's govnt visit. This was a star-wars-like event (not the movie). It involved The Intervention - which is here and soon to formally reveal itself. There was a worm hole-like area in the clouds above the end of the yard, with a ground to cloud scalar beam. An engineer brought a launching device and showed us how to activate it, when the time comes. It would allow us to shift out of this dimension. Wow. Busy night!


      More Tales From the Talking Picture

      As an aside, a subject from the original Disturbia post (above), the talking picture that is still in our present home (which resided in this previous house) is still talking. Just the other day it did something I have never heard before.... it whispered! Usually it will make a loud, creaking sound when I stand near or pass in front of it. This time, it made the same distinct sound -- only faintly, like a whisper. I was adjusting the nearby window, which put me nearly touching this picture. A whisper! . . . amazing.

      The Dream Has Returned

      I was just telling my partner it was about time for him to have another house dream, since his last dream of it was in April. He turned to me and said that he had it two nights ago! A very brief and odd one. He drove up to the house and saw a pile of dirt next to the driveway. It had 6 different tracks in the pile and that they were mine and he knew I had been there. He went to the kitchen and smelled steak cooking. End of dream memory.

      Once again, the kitchen is a focal point.

      Tag. I'm it.

      (( Disturbia )) That IS weird, isn't it? How long or often has this reoccurring dream been for you? For me, it has been a disturbing 13 years! It used to be only 3-4 times per year. But now it seems to have increased to every other month. Although it has currently been since May 21st, that I last had the house dream. I have no idea why or what hold this house has on me and mine. I guess it is open to interpretation.

      I too found the initial post (by
      Blade62) while researching terms in search engines. He has yet to respond or come back to this forum to update his dream experience.

      Welcome, fellow dream warrior! Someone someday will come along and add to the mystery....or provide a key to the gate.

      I honestly cannot remember how long its been, it was only after the recent one i thought gee i have this dream alot and decided to google it. I have a few recurring dreams and my sister and i actually have a few dreams the same which is weird. This house dream tho is anoying me, I did find some info that it could be linked to returning to old ways or habbits which could possibly be true for me at the moment but ill have to see if my feelings are the same next time i have it.

      Usually a house in a dream is the dreamer. The rooms in the house are aspects of the self. You may associate dreams of the house to your past experiences of a particular house you have vivid memories of, but really, when you are visiting a house, exploring, making yourself at home or even making strange discoveries inside a house, it is you that is the house
      Totally confusing I know. I apologize for not being able to put it more eloquently.

      I get tons of "returning to the former house" dreams. In many of them I'm thinking the new owners are away and I'm concerned they'll come back and catch me nosing around. Sometimes I'm back as the current owner. I also get gobs of dreams set in my childhood home and its neighborhood. Interestingly enough, I've had only a small handful of dreams set in my current residence, even though we've been here many years.
