Buildings represent the personality of the dreamer, and the basement, equally as with other underground spaces, is a symbol of the interior of the body, the deepest levels of the mind. Because of this, it is associated with the hidden part of your being, that which is guarded closely from strangers. It is the place of your fears, problems, and feelings of guilt or regret. Once you manage to bring light to this place, there will be nothing that can resist you. In terms of dreams, dreaming of a basement full of food or treasures means that you have the sufficient resources to resolve your problems. You will not need to ask for external help. In contrast, if you glimpse a basement full of pottery, you may be mistakenly judging your situation, you should abstain from participating in unclear issues. Popular superstition says that dreaming of a basement full of wine signifies that you will get great benefits in an unreliable manner.
