Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
The dreamer here wanted me to clarify what I think she already knew herself. However, in dream interpretations, we can uncover things the dreamer may have missed. The dreamer wishes to remain anon.
So, last night, I had a dream about finding a room in my house that I didn’t know existed. I do that a lot (for years, actually) and I know that generally it’s about discovering new talents or repressed areas of yourself. This time, however, for the FIRST time, there was a person in the room. A teenage girl. I asked how she’d been surviving – food, etc She was sneaking food out of my kitchen when I wasn’t home. This girl was quite immature but very sexual. She had also been sneaking a boy into the room, and they were having sex. I was concerned, asking her about birth control, etc. I treated her like a daughter.
I know she represents the sexual, and perhaps the creative, part of me. But, I’ll refrain from my full interpretation b/c, I’d love a “cold reading” of it from you, when you get the chance. I don’t want to influence your take on it. Thank you!!!
I love secret room dreams. I think they are so amazing! To me they are, yes, you said it: discovering a hidden part of ourselves, whether it be a talent, a yearning, or something repressed
This girl, who you say was hiding in there, felt like a daughter to you. So I would imagine she represents your inner child. This inner child is sneaking around doing things (like sex) that in the real world would be taboo to her, so she hides instead. The sexual part, I imagine and again you are right, is probably the creative energy, but also the energy you are using now to speak your truth while working on your new project.
Also, you want to give her tools to protect herself: i.e. birth control. Which in turn, maybe you feel you may need while you are on this path. Not birth control, however, a feeling that you will be protected for speaking that truth, for using your inner voice. Get it? J
You may have a fear of other’s judging you right now.. So, subconsciously, your VOICE I imagine is “taboo” in the eyes of the inner child for fear of losing someone or something important if they found out what you really think. (maybe family, some friends, or followers?) What do you think?
Secret Rooms and Hidden Passageways
In this dream, the dreamer was accurate in describing the hidden rooms in dreams equal a hidden or repressed part of ourselves. Sometimes these dreams also help us delve into a darker area of our subconscious. There is nothing more exhilarating than finding a hidden room in a dream.. In my experience, it is a feeling I rarely feel in my waking life. Like a deep discovery full of wonder and awe.. But sometimes, if the rooms are hidden in a dark and dreary place, the dream can have a whole new meaning.
