In what area of your life are you trying to move on up to the next level? Progression or digression depending on whether the elevator is going up or down. Elevate your mind and spirit. Your ability to rise above where you are now. If the elevator won’t work or is going sideways or falling, then you are having a difficult time progressing in some area. Your dream may be telling you it’s time for a different strategy.
Scary elevator rides can also be connected to hormone fluctuations, especially for women and their monthly cycle. In this case, the dream is telling you to get checked out and find a way to balance the hormones.
