Okay, so it's not exactly ONE recurring dream but a recurring TYPE of dream that I've been having about 70% of my...dreaming time? for the past three or four years. I just noticed this today (it was quite the epiphany).
So, it's usually about a large old (probably 19th century) house/hotel with lavish decorations. However, I've had dreams about school buildings, museums, and cheaper hotels that fit this sort of storyline. Anyways, there are always at least three floors, and sometimes there are even ten or twenty. So I start out on the first floor, and I want to explore the place and I think the first floor is boring or something or I'd just rather see the upstairs, because I'm usually looking for something. In most of these dreams, I'm WAITING for the building to get creepy or dangerous or just interesting or I have to find something at the top floor of the building, and I think it will upstairs so I go there. So I keep going up floors, and something keeps building - every floor is older, or creepier, or more extravagant (or a combination of these) than the floor below it. When I get to the final floor (not always the top one: sometimes there is a reason I don't get there), there is always some sort of danger or some frightening thing. In one dream, I found that if I stayed on the top floor, because the hotel was built poorly, a storm would destroy that floor and kill me. Another dream the top floor was so old that I almost fell through the floorboards to my death several times in an attempt to explore the place (it was my new house), and there was another one about a hotel with a floor I also almost fell through. In another dream, I found my friend dead, nailed to the wall in the top of a school, and in another, a ghost acted out their death on the stairs while I was on my way upstairs to get a key (and the ghost was intending to threaten me). What could be the meaning behind this?
