Meaning of Dreams about Climbing
Are you climbing towards a goal or away from something you fear? You may be climbing the ladder of success and feel that something you’ve wanted for a long time is now nearly within your reach. You have great ambition but are you confident as you climb or does it fill you with fear? Your unconscious may be reminding you of the adage that ‘Pride comes before a fall’.
Make sure that you remain sincerely modest despite your success and your friends, family and colleges will express pleasure at your success. This will increase the self-confidence you need to reach your goal. However, if you become egotistical and ‘climb too high’ then eventually someone will knock you down. Most people despise arrogance but humility wins love.
Walls and mountains to climb symbolise obstacles in life that you need to overcome. An easy climb will show success but climbing a precarious mountain ledge means that there is an uphill struggle ahead. A meteoric rise to fame is not as easily sustained as a gradual and well-planned rise to prominence. Be cautious and take one step at a time.
Freud considered dreams of climbing to represent a longing for sexual fulfillment.
The dream oracles say that to climb a ladder to the last rung means you will succeed in business.
HER SECRET FEARS HOLD HER BACK
I keep on having the same recurring dream in which I am either climbing a very steep hill or a ladder. In both cases they are so steep that they are nearly upright. When I finally get to the top I can’t go any further. There is something invisible stopping me. I feel as if I’m going to fall right back to where I started.
I wake up very distressed. Could you help me understand the dream?
Climbing can mean many different things in a dream: climbing the ladder of success, a detached view of events, pride, frustration, ambition etc. Your dream, which is full of fear, shows that you are trying to escape from something that’s troubling you emotionally. It is something frustrating because the climb is so arduous. You must examine your heart to decide what invisible secret fears hold you back.
