General interpretation about dreaming about heights

Having dreams where height is a predominant factor is a reflection of the person’s mood, self-esteem or the psychological environment concerning workplace issues. Dreams with heights are rarely symbolizing personal situations.

The height represents situations of power, either as the person develops or as he faces it. You either have the confidence to dominate a situation that leads to success or gets carried away by a lack of confidence and end up in a state of stagnation. 

One way or another, dreams give a sense of premonition about what is currently happening with the person who dreams of it. It is up to each person to take the positive and the negative interpretation of what your subconscious is transmitting to you.
