The Endless Climbing Dream
This dream can take several forms; you are climbing and climbing – it could be a staircase, a mountain, or a seemingly endless set of steps that lead to nowhere. Higher and higher you climb, but you never seem to reach your destination. Probably at some point in the dream, the climb becomes almost impossible. Perhaps it gets too steep, maybe the earth underneath you becomes unstable, or it could be too narrow to navigate. You may even dream of a spiral staircase; and have the sensation – that you are going in circles! You keep trying to make progress, but it is to no avail.
When you experience this dream, it is likely that, in your waking life, you are also trying to reach an achievement. It will be a big deal – it could be a promotion, you may be passing an exam, achieving a qualification. Whatever it is – it has taken a lot of focus, effort, determination and commitment to get this far.
In the dream, when you find the climb is becoming too much, it demonstrates that in your waking life, you have underestimated just what it is going; to take to realise your goal. Maybe you didn’t realise how hard it would be, how much it would impact all other areas of your life, the resources you would need, or how much time it would take.
In the dream, you may reach a point – where you are clinging on for dear life. You could find the ground is crumbling beneath you; or that you are dangling on the side of a rockface! What this means in real life; is that you are frightened that your dream may slip away, that your support network is not up to the job, or that reaching the finishing line is nigh on impossible.
Do not worry; whilst this dream can be alarming – it is a sign that you are ready to face your situation. Keep in mind the phrase ‘one step at a time’! It is time to take a slow and steady approach – short bursts of energy will burn you out. Think what you would do in real life if you were faced; with a mountain to climb or hundreds of stairs to climb – with little practice or experience. You would likely break it down into smaller walks, take breaks, eat snacks, and lean on other people for motivation and support. So, this is also true of achieving your goal. Break it down into smaller steps. Appreciate it may take you longer than you thought. Take time to appreciate how far you have come. Check that those around you are on board with your plans and gather their help. Take things down a gear when needed – but keep moving!
