(1) Climbing a ladder or steps or a mountain, or going up in a balloon or a lift, may signify simply high achievement; an arduous mountain or rock-face climb may signify the accomplishing of a hard but rewarding task.

(3) High ascent - to the top of a mountain or high in the sky - may symbolize the gaining of (or a desire for) a more spiritual, less worldly perspective or lifestyle.
(4) On the other hand, an ascent in the air may represent a state of mind that is too idealistic, or too much in the grip of fantasy.

That something is coming up from the unconscious into consciousness is good: it is giving you a chance to become aware of desires and anxieties that you have previously ignored (perhaps deliberately).
NB Anxieties are often associated with repressed desires. Desires are repressed - rejected from the conscious mind - because thev gave rise to anxiety (perhaps in the form of guilt-feelings or fear of punishment).
(6) A special instance of (5) is where what is rising symbolizes libido or psychic energy. This interpretation would certainly be suggested if what was seen rising was a snake or serpent. (In Hindu thought, the serpent Kundalini - feminine - lies coiled in the base of the abdomen; from these genital regions she may be induced, by meditation and breath control, to rise through various psychic centres to the crow n of the head. This represents the bringing of the sexual-psychic energy into union w’ith consciousness - thought of as masculine. The opposite process may then be induced: the conscious ego descends into the unconscious psychic depths. And so the twofold process may continue, up and down, until there is a complete mixing of the mental-spiritual and psychic-physical factors.)... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
