The Right and Left Stairways

stairs

Dreams 289: A man in his early forties dreamed that he was talking to some girls when he was in high school in New York. It was very casual and relaxed conversation in a restaurant located at the top of a mansion. When he left, he found himself at the top of stairs on a landing where there was a stairway to his right and there was a stairway to his left.

He went down the left stairway and knew somehow that he had to use a phone. He then went down the right stairway and found a woman that looked like his wife. She was pretty and looked like his wife. He thought she looked depressed as she was leaning forward on her arms with her forearms resting on the table. He then saw the girls he was talking to earlier pass by in the distance.

Interpretation

This dream is all about communication with his wife. Stairs invariably represent sex because it is a rhthymic activity that ends in a climax. The left tends to be associated in ancient India with subconscious emotions, while the right usually represents conscious activity. The dream is emphasizing the importance of communication in their sex life.

Restaurants are where people are physically and psychologically nourished. The dream is saying that there was something about the way he communicated with those girls in New York that would be useful in his marriage, that there was something about that type of communication that would be especially nourishing in his marriage.

Movement in this dream is down stairways because their sex life was a “downer.” Movement down the left involves emotion. A phone is at the bottom of this stairway to emphasize the importance of communication.

The right is associated with conscious action. In this case, his depressed wife at the bottom of these stairs represented disappointment over the lack of sexual action, intimacy, in his marriage. The dream ends by recommending interaction with his wife like he had with the New York girls that pass in the distance.

Dream 219: That Idea Might Float

A 38-year-old woman dreamt that a man considering her for part-time work answering phones was with in a row-boat. She dropped her smart phone in the water. Somehow the phone went only about a foot deep into the water. He grabbed the phone and he handed it to her. She took the phone apart and wiped the water out of it so that the phone was dry. The phone was fine and worked.

Dream 219—Interpretation

A businessman wanted her to only answer phones for him, but she was unsure. Her being  surrounded by water with the boss indicated that how she navigated her emotions was key to her functioning in answering phones.

The good news is that the phone did not sink very far, i.e., the idea of answering phones for him might just float. The businessman rescuing the phone pointed to her business action part of her psyche being able to save the situation if she did not go too deep into her emotions. Her not becoming too emotional in her communications (drying the water from her phone) was vital to make the employment work for her.
