Public or dance hall: how you relate to groups or the public; meeting sexuality, a place of initiation, maturing beyond old habits, ways of life and views—perhaps because civic ceremonies such as marriage, trials, social rewards, take place in hall-like environments.
Hallway: the way one meets other people or allows them into one’s life or intimacy, the receptive female reproductive function, connecting link with aspects of oneself. Example: ‘I find myself in the entrance hall of a very large house.
The hall is very large with curved staircases at either side meeting at the top to form a balcony. There is nobody about and I am frightened. I stan to walk up the stairs but then find myself hiding in the roof with very little space above my body’ (Mrs B).
The hall is probably Mrs B’s childbearing ability and her image of herself as a woman.
The words ‘little space above my body’ suggest her main area of life has always been her childbearing function or physical attractiveness as a woman, and she had not developed her mental self. See also corridor; white under colour.
A symbol of a path in life or choices.
A long hallway can symbolize a long monotonous journey
The hallway in a dream is illustrative of how we meet and relate to other people.
(Auditorium; Large hall) A large hall in a dream means comfort, overcoming financial difficulties, a helping wife, a good mistress of the house, a high ranking position that involves little danger, a highway sign, a praiseworthy son, a hard working employee, or a good investment. Ifthe hall is dark, dirty and filled with insects and spider webs in the dream, then it means the opposite.
Sense of community and communication; or a representation of your head / mind and its intellectual abilities. As a meeting place, the hall symbolizes your sharing and openness to the outside world.
Communication and action. Often it is part of yourself that needs to be opened up.
The function of the hall is important, and who is in the hall.
To dream of a great Hall in a strange place means important decisions to be made shortly.
1. Community relationships.
2. Start of a path.
3. Passage, spiritual or emotional.
