Dreams set in a specific location:

The location of a dream is extremely important in that it also locates within our own lives when the issues to which the dream imagery relates, first became important for us. If the dream location familiar it can be useful to ask:

  • What was going on for me when I lived or was familiar with this area?
  • How old was I then?
  • Is there a connection between the events and age of the dream and the events and experiences of my life now?
  • What are my first and strongest associations with this place?

The younger you were at the time, the stronger will be the associations, however they may also be more difficult to articulate and so asking older relations may be of some help.

Childhood and adolescent haunts are places often revisited in dreams, if you look hard enough you may find parts of yourself still located there.
