    Sometimes I also find broken steps on a stairway too, weird…

    I’m dreaming of many houses, or many rooms in a house, most of which have different types of staircases. Long ones, wide ones, narrow ones, spiral ones, stairs to the attics or basements.
    Mostly I think it’s a memory of childhood, when I was four yrs old my mother cleaned a multi-story home. She was upstairs cleaning the master bath, and I had to um, use it. Couldn’t find the others, so I hid in a large closet in the dark. As I back into it, I don’t see where I’m going, and a few heart-stopping screams later, I’m in the basement. What we have here folks, is me falling thru a laundry chute! Ahhhhhhhhhayyyyyy!

    I was in the middle of the desert. There was a spiral staircase leading up into the sky.

    I’m having a dream that I’m in a big house and I’m looking for a staircase, and when I find it I either can’t get to it or I can’t climb it. One time it had a sliding board bottom so I couldn’t walk up, and the other I could see it but couldn’t find a way to it and it was moving up. Would love to know what anyone thinks about this.

    I don’t remember a single night of ‘dreamless’ sleep. I’ve had varied dreams till date, but lately, all my dreams have had stairs in them. At times I’m descending, but most of the times, I’m ascending the stairs. I’m either chasing someone or looking for a way, but whatever I’m doing, the outcome is mostly favourable. In one of the dream I was descending stairs and 2or3 steps were badly broken and at 1st glance it seemed impossible to cross them but once I tried, I could easily cross those steps, got down and found the place I was looking for. In my recent dream, I dreamt of an escalator which was moving in an upward direction in its usual speed. But the moment I stepped on it, it started moving so fast that by the time I reached the top, I could not step off the escalator and was instead flung across the passage. I was actually in air before hitting the floor. All my recent dreams have involved stairs in some or the other form. Could someone please help me with the interpretation? Thanks.
