Dreaming of a burning house

Dreaming of a burning house

Dear Janet Louise,
I dreamt myself and my husband were in a mansion and about to watch a film when flames started burning the sofa and we realised the rest of the house was on fire. It wasn’t our house and we didn’t start the fire, but we knew it was going to happen. My husband grabbed his keys and wallet and we headed outside. While we were standing outside, the owners turned up.

Dear Bernice,
Due to some intense emotions in your waking life, your dream is asking you to look at the situation because you no longer can ignore it. Are you in an emotional rut? There seems to be self-analysing going on, in particular, on a sexual level. Look at old memories and see how these can help you in your present situation. There is lots of amazing potential around you.
