Last night I dreamt that I was going up flights of stairs. At each floor I stopped and looked around. Except for dozens of vacuum cleaners on one floor and a library on another, I don't remember much from that part. When I got to the top, I looked out onto the city and started going down the stairs. I remember passing a restaurant on the way down and a lot of apartments.
It was really vivid and I didn't realize I was dreaming so it was hard to wake up from it.
So I looked up the meaning of stairs online:
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 into your spiritual/emotional/material journey. It also represents material and thoughts that are coming to the surface.
To dream that you are walking down a flight of stairs, represents your repressed thoughts. It suggests that you are going into your unconscious. It also refers to setbacks that you will experience in your life. If you are afraid of going down the stairs, then it suggests that you are afraid to confront your repressed emotions and thoughts. Is there something from your past that you are not acknowledging.
What are you dreaming about these days?
