Going up, coming down – in short, this is life, and all of us are going in both directions.
There are no expectations. And what object is a symbol for this – an escalator.
It symbolizes continuous progress and the “way to the top” or “steep decline” from a very good and correct position that was obtained with stress and tension.
Also, the escalator can be the symbol of gradualness and reasonableness, but also the energy and great energy that is required to make a metaphorical “breakthrough” with each level you take in whatever direction.
Also, when someone goes down with the escalator, in reality, it can be either his release and the path to a weaker but easier position, or a big drop in self-confidence, lack of will or energy for a new start, or for additional effort. It is, in a way simple, you are going down, or you are going up.
There is no left or right, and it is a very straightforward symbolism.
Here are some additional meanings of the dream where the main symbol is the escalator. Read them.
Meaning and Symbolism
Dreaming of an escalator can have different interpretations depending on the way you dreamed of it.
In a version of a dream where you are riding an escalator up, it may mean that you will be advancing in your workplace soon.
There is an excellent possibility that you will advance in the future and earn far better incomes than you have now. This may come faster than you could imagine.
The escalator of your life could take you further and faster.
If you have dreamed of getting down with the escalator, it may mean that there is a possibility that, for some reason, you will get a lower-paid job at your job.
This may be due to someone coming to your current job to replace you through a connection.
Of course, this downward spiral does not have to connect only to a job, and it can be any aspect in your life that you are struggling with at the moment.
If you dreamed that you are stuck on an escalator and panic at that moment, it might mean that you otherwise suffer from claustrophobia, which will be more pronounced in the coming days than usual due to the increased daily stress to which you are exposed.
Try to overcome this fear by gradually exposing yourself to it from time to time.
Otherwise, you will be in a situation where you will not be able to control yourself, and you may lose consciousness due to hyperventilation.
This is the primary version – but the panic attack could be related to anything you are currently working on.
If you’ve been dreaming that you’re stuck on an escalator and not panicking, it could mean you’ve been confronted with some of your fears lately. You are a person who is aware and does not want to allow something or someone to control your life, and you are determined to eradicate it in yourself. You are on the right path, and you will succeed in your intention soon if you continue like this.
To dream that the escalator you are riding on has suddenly started to descend at high speed and stop before it can mean that you will soon be in a situation where you will be afraid for your life. You will probably have an accident where you will get injuries that you think are more dangerous than they look, and you will be quite stressed.
Take care in the coming days how you drive, or if you do some dangerous sports, work with half the throttle to avoid injuries.
If you may have dreamed that the escalator started to descend suddenly, that is, to fall and wake up before that happened, it may mean that you will experience some great stress in the coming period.
It is possible that you will see an accident that will shake you a lot, and you will be in a bad mood and reluctant for days.
Decoding the Dream about Escalator
Surprisingly the dream about the escalator can have additional versions, and some of them are related to love as an additional element.
In a version of a dream where you have a love experience on an escalator, such a dream can mean that you are longing for some new sexual adventure. You have probably been alone and under abstinence for a long time, but you can’t meet a person who would suit you. You’ll need to tweak your criteria and expectations a bit to make that happen or simply move more among people to find what you’re looking for. You will not get anything good from sitting in the house.
If you may have dreamed that someone on the escalator tried to attack you and you managed to escape, it may mean that you are a person who pulls some great traumas from the past that prevent you from relaxing among people and getting closer to them and making friends.
Whatever someone has done to you in the past, don’t let it run your life gauge; it would mean that person has won.
Do not allow fear to win, but fight it with all you might and if you cannot do it alone, seek help and advice.
If you dreamed of getting in and out of an escalator by going back in time so that the escalator is in a way a time machine, it may mean that you wish you could go back in time and correct some mistakes you made in the past towards to some people.
Unfortunately, time cannot go back, but these people are still there, and you can ask them for forgiveness for what you did to make your future better and your conscience clearer.
If you dreamed of getting out of the escalator and find yourself in the future, it could mean that you are a person who leads a tidy life and plans everything in advance.
In the days ahead, you will realize that no matter how hard you try, there will always be something you could not have foreseen and you shouldn’t bother with that. It’s up to you to try.
If you have dreamed of entering the escalator in which it is dark, it may mean that you will be able to overcome all your fears and that you will feel very nice because of that, and you have an exceptional period ahead of you.
But if you dreamed of entering or trying to get on the escalator where you get dark and give up the ride and take the “normal” stairs (the other road), it may mean that the road ahead will be much harder because you decided to go down the line of least resistance and refused to face your fears.
The message behind this Dream and Advice
Dreaming of getting into an escalator and not seeing a way to run it to go upstairs can mean that you are currently in some studies and that you are not ready in time for the exam ahead of you.
If you may have dreamed of getting stuck in an escalator and pressing the alarm, but it doesn’t work, it may mean that you will call someone for help soon, but without success and without response.
Whatever situation you find yourself in in the coming days, you will have to come to terms with the fact that you will have to get out of it yourself.
As you can see, even in the darkest places can something give birth to something good, all good can come from a valuable lesson, and this is what you have to do in this case, at this moment in your life.
At times, the dream about the escalator is the dream that is related to the process of getting out or finding a better, smarter way out.
Just the idea of getting on the escalator, and for example not succeeding, because it is very crowded and there is no space, it could mean that you probably applied for a job, but in the end, it turns out that they have more workers than they need. You will have to look for something else.
This is the job you have always wanted and what you are striving for, and we advise you not to give up on the future competition for it, no matter what.
There is a high probability that in the future, there will be another similar chance for that job, and be sure to send your job application.
In the end, we will conclude by saying, this is a dream where the dominant motive is an escalator, it is very powerful in a symbolic sense since these dreams habitually challenged in actuality whether victory or failure wait for those who had this dream, and whether they will advance or retreat, or whether they will be “leaders or helpers” in life.
Are you going up, or are you going down?
