Our dreams can be interpreted in so many ways. Each dream could mean something different. If you’ve been dreaming of your childhood home, this is what it could mean.

Dream interpretation can be tricky as there are so many different ways to interpret it. The details of the dream could change the whole meaning, or what you are currently going through at the moment could shed light on your dream too.

The home can represent your body

According to Ellis, the home we are dreaming of could be a metaphor for our body and show us the area that might need a bit of extra care. She also adds that it could be worth getting a check-up.

You’re thinking about your own children

Loewenberg also claims that it is quite common to dream about your childhood home if you have children of your own. Often when you become a parent, you often reminisce about your childhood and reflect on your own parenting based on your childhood. She said:
