Rock Slide

Rock Climbing

To dream that you are rock climbing symbolizes your struggle, determination, and ambition. You are not letting any obstacles get in the way of your goal. Additionally, the dream indicates that you have an edge over others.


The Chinese attribute to the rock a symbolism denoting permanence, solidity and integrity, and this may be taken as generally valid. Like the stone, it is held in many traditions to be the dwelling-place of a god. As a Caucasian tradition has it: ‘In the beginning, the world was covered with water. The great creator-god then dwelt inside a rock’. It seems, then, that man intuitively regards stones (as in the myth of Deucalion) and rocks as the source of human life, while the soil (inferior because more disintegrated) is the mother of vegetable and animal life.

A mystic significance is attributed to this mineral, arising from the sound it makes when struck and because of its unity—that is, its solidity and cohesion.
