One of the most common reasons for dreaming about this item is because you are ‘sweeping something under the rug’. You are covering up for something bad in your waking hours. It may not have become obvious yet, however you risk harming the reputation of your family or yourself by doing so.

Perhaps you are trying to keep up appearances when something negative is really going on.

If this is the case, perhaps you are someone who likes to pretend that everything is ok when it’s not. You might be trying to shield yourself from a negative reality.

On a more positive note, a rug is something that brings warmth and softness to a room so maybe you want these feelings in your waking hours. This could be by making more time to look after you or by nurturing your relationships.

The location of the rug might also be significant- a rug in the living room could represent family, whereas a rug at the front door could extend to friends, neighbours and other family members. Perhaps you need to welcome these people into your life more and spend time with those you care about the most.

Think about the condition of the rug too- was it old and torn? If so, then people may be taking advantage of you and walking all over you- you may feel you are being stepped on by others. Is it time to stop this cycle of behaviour and stand up for yourself?

A rug can symbolise the comfort you feel in life. If the rug was in a good condition then perhaps you feel comfortable with your living situation right now. However, if the rug was in a bad way and there were only floorboards beneath, you may not feel comfort from your home life or your current circumstances. You may be dangerously close to financial problems too.

It's probable you don’t want others to know what you have done lately or how you really feel about something so you are doing your best to pretend that it never happened or that you don’t think a certain way. If the thing you were using didn’t quite cover up every part of what you were trying to mask, then maybe you haven’t been careful enough in keeping this a secret. The truth will come out eventually so why delay the inevitable?...
