The Hidden Meanings of Your Dreams:

Physical Physical
You are facing obstacles, challenges, and the desire to reach a difficult goal or decision.

Climbing a mountain means you need to develop ambition, determination, and stamina. How you climb depicts your inner and outer process of achievement. Reaching the summit means you’ve accomplished your goals, are successful, and now have a new view of your life.

Emotional Emotional
You are avoiding hard work and want to take the easy way and escape from demanding situations.
Spiritual Spiritual
Being on a mountaintop means you are actively pursuing spiritual evolution, involvement with a sacred process, or a higher realm of consciousness, knowledge, and truth. If you fall off a mountain, you are in a hurry to succeed without thoroughly thinking about or honoring your path.
The different meanings which have been attached to the symbolism of the mountain stem not so much from any inherent multiplicity as from the various implications of each of its component elements: its height, verticality, mass and shape.

Deriving from the first idea (height) are interpretations such as that of Teillard, who equates the mountain with inner ‘loftiness’ of spirit, that is, transposing the notion of ascent to the realm of the spirit. In alchemy, on the other hand, the reference is nearly always to the hollow mountain, the hollow being a cavern which is the ‘philosophers’ oven’.

The vertical axis of the mountain drawn from its peak down to its base links it with the world-axis, and, anatomically, with the spinal column.

Because of its grandiose proportions, the mountain came to symbolize, for the Chinese, the greatness and generosity of the Emperor; it is the fourth of the twelve imperial emblems. But the profoundest symbolism is one that imparts a sacred character by uniting the concept of mass, as an expression of being, with the idea of verticality. As in the case of the cross or the Cosmic Tree, the location of this mountain is at the ‘Centre’ of the world.

This same profound significance is common to almost all traditions: suffice it to recall mount Meru of the Hindus, the Haraberezaiti of the Iranians, Tabor of the Israelites, Himingbjör of the Germanic peoples, to mention only a few.

    Another classic obstacle dream. The forecast depends on the outcome of the dream action and other elements which must be correlated, but the interpretation is substantially the same as climb. 

  4. Complete Dictionary of Dreams » Dr. Michael Lennox April 14, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    You are dreaming of challenges or obstacles that you must surmount in your life, especially as they might relate to new ideas, constructs, or choices.

    Mountains are formed when two opposing vectors of movement in the earth’s crust push against each other and rise upward to form a new land mass. Therefore, the mountain is symbolic of the newly formed, high vantage place that rises up out of conflict and confrontation. Remember that changes on our planet’s surface first begin in the combustible core below. This relates them to the passion, aggression, and other friction-causing emotional states that occur in the lower depths of the unconscious that, in the long run, build new, higher terrain upon which you can see more of your life.
