I must have a subconscious fear of elevators.

When I'm awake, I have no problem with elevators. I ride in them all the time.

But when I'm dreaming, elevators are scary. They never work right in my dreams. And who dreams about elevators, anyway?

A recent dream I had I was at a military facility and there were two elevators, one for officers and one for everyone else. I took the one for officers (I never was an officer in the military). It was fast. So fast that when it went down, your feet left the floor. But it was so fast, it didn't stop long enough where I wanted to get off to get out the door. So I had to go back up (my knees bent as it went so fast). I don't remember how I got off of it but then I was talking to my brother about guns in the dream.

Elevators in my dreams never work correctly. They take me to the wrong floor or the wrong part of the floor (moving sideways, apparently), or even the wrong building or a totally different place as if they were a portal of some kind. And this is a recurring theme in my dreams. I don't have elevators in every dream (lots of cars, though), but when I do, it's not going to work right.

Do you have recurring themes in your dreams? Do you think I subconsciously fear elevators? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. If I was to take a guess, I'd think the fear was a fear of ending up in a situation you're unprepared for or was out of your control. That's my armchair dream interpretation.
