The Language of Dreams

(see Flying)

Movement and transition, similar to other vehicles (see Car, Hone, Spaceship). Where the plane goes, its logo, or the other passengers on board (if any) may give you more clues here.

If you’re in the plane, enroute, this can be considered a type of flying or ascent dream.

Higher ideals, due to this vehicle’s movement toward the heavens. Also the courage to achieve a goal (e.g., “reach new heights”).

A plane that sits endlessly on a runway indicates a life that has somehow become stagnant, or one that is being held back by outside influences. Check to see who, or what, resides in the control towerl

Being lost at the airport, or looking for someone there, characterizes confusion caused by getting one’s signals crossed, or through poor planning. Make sure you have your information straight, get organized, then readdress this situation.

Waiting at the airport, surrounded by strangers, and never being met by the anticipated party is a type of desertion dream.... The Language of Dreams

Islamic Dream Interpretation

(Climbing; Rising) To see oneself ascending in the skies in a dream means falling in rank, or it could mean oppressing oneself. Ifone sees himself ascending in the skies until he reaches the stars, merges with them and ifhe becomes a star in the dream, it means that he will receive titles and powers.

If one sees himself ascending a mountain it means depression, stress and travels. However, rising in a dream means elevation of status, and descending means a backslide.

If one sees himself walking up a steep road in a dream, it means rising in status, but involving toiling and hardships. Ifone sees himself climbing a mountain, then the mountain in a dream is interpreted as one’s goal. Thus, one’s dream may mean attaining one’s goal as far as he reaches in his climb. In dream interpretation, any ascent of a mountain, a trail, a hill, an elevation or even climbing a roof means attaining one’s goal or satisfying one’s needs.

To see oneself climbing flat on his back in a dream then means uncalled for, or unnecessary hardship. (Also see Air; Ascent; Climbing a mountain; Flying)... Islamic Dream Interpretation

Ascension or dissension on a ladder may be an unconscious reflection of your movement toward a goal. Ascending is generally a more positive symbol than descending.

The ladder is suggestive of hard work and exertion of energy.

The ladder may also be symbolic of the “way to heaven”. You can decide whether the heaven is here on earth or in the forever after! :) Missing rungs may symbolize missing elements or hardships and handicaps that you could be (or are) encountering on your ascent to better and bigger things.

If the door is barred we arc not ready to explore our unconscious self.

If the door is closed we must make an effort to get in.

If inside the tower is dark, we are still afraid of our subconscious.
