Meaning of dreaming of stairs

Dreaming that you’re climbing stairs

Climbing is always a synonym for something good in dreams, but in this case, climbing stairs wants to give you the best of luck. Whether in personal aspects (such as love) or work life, climbing stairs represents that you find yourself climbing up to success.

Dreaming that you are going downstairs

Dreaming of going downstairs, in this case, is the opposite of the above. Dreaming that you are going downstairs represents that, either in person or work aspects, you are moving further and further away from success.

Dreaming that you find yourself climbing circular stairs

Having the dream that you are climbing circular stairs means that you have a goal in mind, and you are on the way to it. But you’re going around and around instead of just going straight for what you want.

Dreaming that you find yourself going downstairs in circles

Dreaming of walking downstairs in circles then means that you have good times and bad times. That is, you may be falling at an emotional or professional level, but it’s not a direct fall.

Dreaming that you’re sitting right in the middle of a staircase

If you have a dream where you’re sitting right in the middle of a staircase, then it means that halfway to a goal you’ve stalled. You have to keep climbing!

They are dreaming that you are sitting right at the bottom of a staircase

Dreaming that you find yourself climbing or descending a ladder, and you’re scared of falling, can reflect your inner fear of failing to reach your goals and therefore collapsing down without having reached the top of your dreams.
