Change of Elevation in Dreams

Any change of elevation in a dream represents a real or potential alteration in your spiritual or emotional "height." So, when people speak of getting "high" emotionally, they are using archetypal language.

This means, generically, a series of good feelings, sometimes even analogous to the heights of rapture or ecstasy, especially inmystical literature. It does not refer to only drug-induced altered states.

Dreaming of being on a plane, for example, usually represents a higher "plane" of consciousness or being. Going up a hill, often with difficulty, suggest an elevation or "uplifting" of mind, or progress. Climbing stairs has a similar message. So can climbing a tree or rope. In many dream-cases, flying also represents transcendence, or "rising above" the problems of earth in your mind.
