To dream of stairs represents slowly doing something the hard way to progress in a situation.
Going up stairs often represents improvement, achievement, or reaching higher levels of awareness and understanding. You are making progress emotionally, spiritually, or materially. If you have problems going up stairs it may symbolize trouble being unable to make progress in your life. Going up stairs may also symbolize a struggle or challenge you must endure to reach a higher level of understanding, success, or power.
Going down stairs often represents emotional regression, or a situation that is getting worse. For example walking into your basement may symbolize regressing into darker aspects of your unconscious thoughts. Possibly a waking life situation is becoming more stressful or unpleasant to deal with. Walking down stairs may also symbolize the easing of conditions as a challenge or struggle ends. You may be slowly dealing with challenges to reach a bigger problem.
To dream that you walk up or down the stairs of your home towards another floor symbolizes arriving in a new situation or emotional state. The stairs themselves in this case may not be as relevant as where it is you are going. TOP
