EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A dream of falling from a great height took place after the dreamer was confronted by a girl who said the dreamer had been talking about her. The heights were therefore a symbol of his fears that this situation could only end up badly. So the dreams meaning featured this theme of a "bad ending" and captured this exact thought process "I can only see this ending up badly. She was really confrontational and I really do not want to bump into her again."
Example dream : A dream where the dreamer feels petrified of heights linked to a situation the previous day when he felt overcome with anxiety. The dream was using one kind of extreme anxiety to describe his feelings during an anxiety attack. The metaphor is simple as the dream caught this feeling "Going into that social club and meeting those people made me feel as nervous as I feel with heights." The dreamer felt paralysed and sick when he suffered from heights.
Example dream : working on a rooftop when scared of heights symbolised the fear of doing something the day before. The dreamer was in a place where he might meet a friend he was trying to avoid. The dream simply mirrored that same feeling of fear from the day before.
Example dream : A fear of heights on a tall building symbolised the dreamers lack of confidence with a woman he was attracted to.
Example dream : Being scared of heights linked to the dreamers lack of confidence but a realisation of how her boyfriend had helped reassure her and build her confidence. So we can translate the symbolic meaning of heights into the word "scared" and we see how the dream captures this feeling "I am often lacking confidence but my new boyfriend reassures me when I feel scared." Notice how the dream features this symbolism in quite a complex way.
Example dream : Heights symbolised the dreamers nervousness - he felt that he would soon become recognised for his writing achievements. He was not happy in the limelight and felt very nervous speaking publicly

Example dream : A dream where the dreamer fears stairs which were high up linked to the dreamers other chronic phobias. One phobia or fear is often a symbol for another fear.

I took the lift because I might have bumped into someone and had to talk to them. I hate talking to people."
