Dreaming Of Stairs means your subconscious is messaging you about your progress – up or down? And of how secure your ascent is. Or isn’t! Hands up who has scary stairs dreams?
You dream of them when you are trying to ascend in life or apprehensive about moving down a level.
And in your dreams at these times, stairs appear with a whole flight missing, so you’re trying to figure out how the hell you’re going to get up. They can seem unstable, scarily so.
What you want is a golden flight of awesome stairs that you flit up in your beautiful bare feet.
Dreams where you’re descending a prominent complicated structure or stairs in a building, often happen when you’re trying to get out of something, like deleveraging from a relationship, for example.
I still remember my best stairs dream ever. In a hole behind one of the steps, I found a box and in it was a dead bluebird on straw, looking ceremonial. But then it came alive and began to sing happily before flying around. Dreaming of stairs is your subliminal mind telling you that you’re going up or down a level. Pay attention to the state of the stairs and your direction. If the stairs are scary or unstable, your subconscious mind is reflecting your anxiety.
Or, it’s saying strengthen these steps. You need a stronger base through which to ascend. Just as you can assess psychic clarity by the state of water in your dreams, the stairs show where you are on firm ground and ready to rise. Or not!
Along with waves and flying, they are one of the most common symbols.
They can also suggest the subconscious mind, being steps down into a vault we fear to enter.
