Many dreamers say they find a connection between a place they dream of – especially a house – and a place they later see while awake. Most of these description appear to be attempts to find connections obvious to no one but the dreamer. A strong desire to have the inner world connect with the real world seems to be the motivation. This may be through a need for human life to have meaning and connection with a wider, invisible, life. The evidence of thousands of dreams suggests that searching for meaning in this direction is misplaced. Meaning arises from a love or acceptance of the many aspects of oneself, and thus the expansion of awareness into what was unconscious.
