Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

Direction in life. Note condition of stairs, whether rickety or strong.

If going up, the right direction; if down, wrong direction. Running up and down, you need clarity; make up your mind and get on with your life.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

This dream follows the general “up” is good, “down” not so good, rule (see the chapter on interpretation); however, as an additional guide: to fall upstairs augurs well for love affairs, and to fall— as opposed to stumble— downstairs is a warning to be less controversial in your expressed views; if you dreamed of sweeping or scrubbing the stairs, you are likely to have an unexpected improvement in your life-style.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

When interpreting this dream, try to remember your feelings upon awakening. Going up and down the stairs could mean several different things. It could represent changes in consciousness, movement from one inner plane to another, or a change in understanding. In a more material sense, it could represent a rise or fall in economic or social status and the general efforts that are required to accomplish life’s small and large goals. Climbing may represent an achievement of your ambitions and a movement in a positive direction. Descending may symbolize your doubts or a period following hard work and achievement of a significant goal. Generally, dreaming of ascending a stairway connotes movement in a positive direction while descending is indicative of a down period or negative flow of ideas or actions. See also: Climbing

Vision: Climbing stairs: you are on a spiritual journey that will lift you above the common confusions of everyday life, but here, too, you will have to deal with obstacles. Walking down a flight of stairs: after much effort, relief is in sight; you are getting back on solid ground. Falling down a flight of stairs: you are either waking up from a dream or will receive painful, sobering news. See Ladder, Steps, Spiral Staircase.

Depth Psychology: Stairs are either a sign of your desire for ecstatic sex or for more influence, power, and authority. Do you want to get to the top? If your climh up the stairs is easy, you will gain new insights.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda

Climbing or descending a flight of stairs denotes, respectively, a rise or fall in social or economic status.

The same actions may also be interpreted as an increase or decrease in consciousness.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

Stairs are often an indication of the steps we must take in order to achieve a goal. Climbing the stairs is indicative of the effort that we must make in order to have access to the more mystical, spiritual side of our being. More simply, it is the exertion we practise in our everyday life – the effort to be ourselves. Conversely, in order to have access to the hidden, unconscious side of ourselves, we need to ‘go downstairs’ into the unconscious.

A golden staircase is such a basic image, with so many interpretations, that particular attention needs to be paid both to other aspects of the dream, and also our spiritual state at that specific time. Largely it represents a ‘death’, but not necessarily a physical death.

It is more the realization that we no longer need to function solely within the physical or material realms but can move towards a more fulfilling life.

It is a way out of the mundane.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

If the dreamer is climbing the stairs, then he is “on his way to the top.” If the staircase is bright and cheery, the climb to the top will be easy and pleasant. But if the staircase is dark and frightening, the dreamer may have to face some unpleasant situations before he gets to where he wants to be.

If the dreamer is descending the staircase, and the staircase is a pleasant one, then he may soon complete a difficult task and be able to relax for awhile. But if the staircase is dark and gloomy, or the dreamer is falling down the stairs, then the dreamer may be in danger of being “on his way down.” Look to other symbols in the dream to judge how this can be prevented.

If someone known to the dreamer is either climbing or descending the staircase, depending on whether the dreamer is at the top or the bottom, that person is either rising or descending to meet the dreamer.

If an unknown male figure is either climbing or descending the staircase, then the dreamer’s intellect will be challenged in some way.

If it’s an unknown female figure, then emotional matters will either rise to a major turning point, or fall to a level of normalcy. Astrological parallels: Saturn, Uranus, Pluto Tarot parallel: The Wheel of Fortune

Dream Explanations of Astro Center | Astro Center

You are in the midst of a transition in life, perhaps directly connected to personal growth or assessment. Climbing up stairs should be interpreted as ascending to higher levels of consciousness. Going down stairs connects to revisiting places or moving into lower levels of thought, such as anger and envy, or facing your own emotional development by revisiting old issues. Where the stairs are is important to consider.

A stairway in a home is about personal transitions, whereas stairs in public environments reveal issues around how you operate out in the world, in full view of others. There may be literal elements of this image in a dream, as a dream that takes place on a stairway at your workplace will likely connect to issues that are work-related.

A stairway in a public park may reveal shifts that involve issues of relaxation and leisure.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

Symbolic of a step by step progression towards a goal in life

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

Taking steps towards something; going up or down in life in your own estimation. Running up: escaping from urges arising from lower down in the body; so, a movement of attention towards the abstract or mental, away from fears aris­ing from unconscious or sexuality. Example: T go up the first flight of stairs, then the next, and there is my ex husband s Nan who is dead and whom I have never met. I don’t see her face but I know it’s her. She is a blinding white light and I run down the stairs’ (Mrs H).

The example shows how going upstairs can be an opening or widening of awareness to in­clude areas of expenence usually avoided. In fact Mrs H takes her awareness down to more everyday levels to escape meet­ing the light.

Example: ‘1 climb a few flights of stairs. As I go up, the stairs stan wobbling and breaking up. At the top the last flight breaks away from the landing and I am left to cross a gaping hole with a few bits of debris to cling to.

It is very frightening, but I see other people passing me on the caved in stairs and on to the landing as if nothing has happened’ (Maureen). Lack of confidence, a fear of failing or not being capable is also a common feeling in connection with stairs. Maureen sees life as full of pitfalls.

CLIMBING STAIRS

A staircase allows you to move from one place to a destination that is located above or below you. Stairs are symbolic of your ability to raise your consciousness to a higher plane or explore deeper territory beneath you. Any set of stairs or steps in a dream is an indication of examining a higher or lower level of your psyche, depending on which direction you are moving.

If the stairs are in a home, it is your sense of self that is being examined. Social issues and how you operate in the world are connected to a stairway that is located in a building or public place. Moving upward could indicate an increase in awareness and a readiness to elevate your thought process. Moving downward might connect to reexamining your past or considering something more deeply....

CLIMBING STAIRS

You have great ambition, but are you climbing with confidence or with fear? Your unconscious may be reminding you not to become egotistical and climb too high, as other people despise arrogance and may try to knock you down.

• More generally stairs are believed to be indicative of the bridge between different states of being. Going up suggests you’re developing higher levels of consciousness and awareness and going down suggests you’re losing that awareness or delving into the realms of your unconscious.

STAIRS / STAIRCASE

According to Jung, stairs are a clear symbol of psychological growth, whereas Freud attributed phallic symbolism to the image. In general, dreams stairs are thought to represent feelings in connection with achievement, failure, climbing and falling. To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs indicates that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress in your journey, whether it is a spiritual, emotional or material one. To dream that you are walking down a flight of stairs suggests that you are descending into your unconscious. It also refers to setbacks that you will experience in your life. To see spiral or winding stairs signify growth and / or rebirth.

If you are running up a staircase in your dream home, this suggests an attempt to escape from an unconscious urge by taking refuge in the abstract or intellectual.

If you are running up the stairs in fear, this suggests a lack of confidence, a fear of failing or not being capable in some way.

If you are running up the stairs with pleasure, then it suggests exuberance, and a possible change in your feelings and situation.

If you are going down the stairs in fear, a loss of belief in your own ability is implied.

If you trip on the stairs, this may suggest problems you have brought upon yourself by meddling in the affairs of other people

A dream often experienced by children is that of skimming down stairs; this dream feels almost like flying down the stairs, the feet just touching the edge of the stairs every so often, creating an exhilarating sense of pleasure. The reason for the dream is that it represents a task—the climbing of stairs—that once seemed daunting to a toddler, but which now has been mastered, giving rise to the sense of effortless achievement symbolized by ‘skimming’. Finally, using an escalator instead of stairs in your home, or anywhere else, may express a certain lack of emotional commitment to a person or project in waking life. A dream of walking against the direction of the escalator suggests frustration at a lack of personal progress.... The Element Encyclopedia
