Tent dream meanings

In general:

A tent in a dream symbolizes that the dreamer is traveling and do not settle. Wherever he wants to come to rest, it will be only temporary. Tent represents a lifetime building, which is built on shaky foundations, and it provides no security. This may also explain a desire for adventure and recklessness. Sometimes dreaming of the tent, suggest to get rid of all that hinders the self-development, satisfaction and joy.


Perhaps the dreamer want for some time to get away from everyday responsibilities and re-discover his relationship to the forces of nature. It may be useful if he is self-sufficient and varies from no one. We are building tents in our dream, because we are reminded by our subconscious, that there should be our home, conscious to live with nature in the future. The tent will be the roof over our head, in some dreams to stimulate thinking in the waking life simpler.


On this level, the importance of the tent is a dream return to the biblical or nomadic symbol: it represents the ability to cancel at any time the tents and leave. The dreamer is not tied to any location and can be anywhere, where he must or where he want to be in a short period of time.

  1. I dreamt I have a huge but flimsy tent. The tent color was dark green. On the dream, I also saw several people but I only knew one in particular which is an online friend at facebook.
    Anyway these people wanted to go somewhere and they all came to my tent to get to the place where they want to go.
    Weird as it is, but in dream parlance, If something defies gravity, it is the Holy Spirit working.
    My tent flies and has taken those people on the dream where they wanted to go.
    The friend whom I know on the dream, She is a teacher.
    Any comment on this?

  2. I dreamt about people holiday makers building tents in my back garden of my house which was bigger than my actual house when they removed the tent the grass was ruined.
