There are people who do not remember what they have dreamed of and others who can detail every thing that appeared in their dream. The world of dreams and the subconscious is complicated, unexplored, inexact and infinite. People can dream about almost anything and many of them have a specific meaning, we can also have a dream over and over again which would mean something completely different. The world of dreams is full of nuances and differences between things that look identical.
Many people have wanted to study and research about the world of dreams and have come to great conclusions with their inquiries. For example, if you dream that you are flying evokes freedom and the good things to come; it is also said that it may be the nostalgia of our primate brain about freedom then. There are different theories for every dream, every hue, etc., since there are many scholars of this subject.
Scientifically it is shown that when we sleep and enter the REM period (deep sleep) there is a great activity of the hippocampus, the memory manager, so it is possible that we dream for events to take root in it.
What is the subconscious?
It is called the subconscious a series of mental processes that we perform human beings and are not perceptible by human consciousness. However, this subconscious can appear at any time subtly and influence situations, in character, etc. Being unintentional and uncontrollable, the subconscious plays individually in our mind, always dominated by things we have seen or perceived, our own feelings and other stimuli.
At bedtime, this subconscious does not sleep, we only get the conscious, that is, our active mind relax. Therefore, at the time of dreaming the unconscious or subconscious is the one who commands, since it connects directly with the dreams we have.
There are many times that it is almost magic, or so it seems. There are people who live so stressed and with so much to do that problems are able to solve them when they sleep, because if your head is full of things. When the mind relaxes the subconscious remember that things are still there and in dreams it is possible to find solutions within the small chaos of life.
The subconscious and the dreams are continually helping each other, involved with each other, since when we sleep, the unconscious does not have to struggle with our conscious mind; our emotions are not placated by logical thoughts and all our desires and fears are left to wander in our minds while we sleep.
In any case, every dream and every detail has its meaning, such as dreaming of lifts. Yes, lifts. It is not as rare as it seems and has different meanings depending on many things; all this sends the subconscious.
What does dream about lifts really mean?
To begin with we must know that dreaming about everyday things is very common, since if we have a routine, and in the case of elevators we use daily, it is very normal that they can appear one way or another in our dreams and our subconscious.
The elevators are machines that make life easier for us and that are designed and created to make us the ups and downs much more comfortable. In addition, they carry a lot of weight, so they also help us transport things. While it is good for us, in dreams it does not have to be that way. Therefore, we will see, depending on the details that surround it, what are the interpretations of the elevators in dreams:
In general, we can say that if in a dream, the elevator, either with you inside or outside, is rising is a good omen, that is, something good may be about to happen. Otherwise, if the elevator is descending, it may be a failure that is just around the corner.
Dreams are somewhat general, we can not know for sure what events are related, but we can intuit it by the course that takes our life or by certain factors that condition that event. For example, if you are expecting an upgrade at work it is possible that dreaming about lifts gives you an idea of how this might work, but you can never say that it is an exact science or that it refers to specific occasions.
Therefore, dreaming about lifts invites you to reflect in a deeper way in the course of your life, in the successes or mistakes you have made or can commit, in what good and bad things can happen to you or what success or failure awaits you.
The case of not being inside the elevator is a little more specific, since not climbing it may mean that you missed a good opportunity in life. It could be interpreted because of the fear that you have to make big decisions, and if in the dream the elevator specifically closes in front of you, you may want to say that because of your fears you have missed great opportunities.
On the other hand, if in your dream the elevator is stopped or damaged, and you have no choice but to climb the stairs, you may want to say that you are not striving at all to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.
Whether the elevator goes up with you inside is a good sign, that something good is about to happen to you or that the progress you've been waiting for is being favorable. It may also be that you have made a successful decision in your life and that carries good things in the future. Also, if the lift goes down, we can guess that it is just the opposite. Something is wrong because it is not improving the situation; in case the elevator is falling sharply, it may mean that what you have at hand has no solution and that to avoid future setbacks it is better to put more of your part.
When inside the elevator you are dreaming that it is accompanied it can mean that the people who are next to you are participants of that success or failure of which we spoke previously depending on the route that takes the elevator.
There is also the option to dream of a panoramic elevator with a horrible feeling that you are being watched, which makes you feel exposed and vulnerable. So it can mean that you have too much pressure on something that is going to happen soon and it affects you a lot what others may think.
In short, every time we dream of elevators means that there is something moving in our life. Whether for good or ill, it is okay to heed those kinds of signals that subtly warn of what is happening in our lives.
Dream about lifts of claustrophobia?
This is difficult to determine, since each person is in a different way and has completely different fears. It is possible that if you have some kind of phobia related to the empty spaces your dream derives a little more nightmare because of the feeling of confinement, but it does not have to be this way. In fact, dreaming of small spaces usually means that at that stage of life you feel overwhelmed, tied up or with no freedom to do at will. He may not be able to decide on his life or be subjected to an unjust sanction for something that has happened in his life. Equally, it is not always about phobias and fears, they can be independent things.
Are the elevators safe?
This type of heavy machinery that is kept in continuous movement are totally assured, the companies carry an exhaustive control of quality, durability and maintenance so that there are no problems nor it jeopardize the life of the people who use them regularly. Specifically, the company Astarlifts , which is headquartered in Spain, carries out a thorough periodic control of all its machines to ensure the safety of all people.
That is to say, if at any moment we dream of an elevator that has an accident, that decides by itself to plummet, or we are influenced by some horror film in which a scene of this type has left we must know that it is all false . With periodic maintenance and passing the relevant reviews the elevators are one of the safest machines in the world. It is essential that this is so that all the people who ride in them are not in any danger. So you must be calm: dreaming of an elevator that falls does not mean that you are going to have a similar accident.
In fact, dreams are often the impulse we need to overcome our fears. Facing ourselves in our subconscious to situations that in real life perhaps we would not dare makes us stronger, because he learns that fear or those fears are not real and can be overcome. So we dare to do much more.
