Any opening in a roof of a temple, tepee, tent, etc. represents the awareness of a change of state that may be an important part of spiritual growth. Dreaming of a chimney indicates that escape to the heavens through the solar gateway – that is, access to the gods – is possible. Rising smoke, such as that seen with incense, is also a symbol for prayer.
Psychological / Emotional Perspective:
Psychologically, a chimney and the passage of smoke portrays the channelling of energy in a more productive way than is presently occurring.
Everyday Material Aspects:
When we dream of chimneys we are linking with a very old concept, that of escape from the mundane and ordinary into freedom.
Gender / Specific Meanings:
In a man’s dream the chimney may symbolize his sense of his own potency. In a woman’s dream it will suggest her drive and desires.
