Using force outside one’s self to accomplish a task
A lever may appear as a symbol in dreams when we are attempting to reach a different level of spiritual awareness.
Psychological / emotional perspective: A lever implies that we need to use some mechanical means to raise or lower an object. From an emotional perspective, this signifies that we need help in handling our emotions at this time.
Material aspects: To be levering an object in dreams – for instance, using a crowbar – suggests that a project or idea needs to be freed up from some kind of restriction.
Gives gender - specific: A lever is a mechanical means of altering position, so in both men’s and women’s dreams such an image can suggest manipulation from an outside source.
