Waiting on top of a skyscraper

The dreamer recognised the "big moment" in this dream as a symbol of his wish for recognition in life.

THE DREAM - I am on top of a skyscraper. I seem to be waiting. I have a feeling that something is going to happen up here. I then realise that I have to pay 'rent' to stay up there of pay extra charges of some kind. I pay the extra $1000 to stay up there. Its high up but I am OK up there even though I suffer from heights. I am going to put on a performance or something is vital to me up there. There is a cafe up there and I want to just wait.

GUESSWORK The dreamer was about to finish writing a book. He felt that this would result with him being highly recognised for his ability. There was still a lot of work to do.

The "Guesswork" stage of interpreting a dream involves spotting issues likely to cause dreams. For help with this click here

1. Skyscraper. Skyscrapers are often symbols of moments and situations when we want to stand tall. The dreamer felt finishing this book would result in people recognising his abilities and achievements.
2. Pay extra. Paying money often is symbolic of the efforts that we are putting in to achieve something. If you pay for something then you value it. Paying extra symbolises that wish to put in every extra effort and to show this really means something.
3. Heights. Heights often symbolise things which make us nervous. The dreamer wanted to be recognised but was often nervous if people made too much fuss. He was scared of reaching the top yet wanted to.
4. Waiting. Waiting symbolised the dreamers final stages of his book. He knew that he would have to wait a little longer to get things finished.
DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers state of mind at work. The dream deals with the following themes
- A willingness to wait
- Wanting to stand tall.
- A willingness to put in every extra effort.

If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture this thought that the dreamer was thinking at the time-"I really think that this will help me become recognised. I have just got some final changes to make and I know it will take some time. I really know that this will be my moment of truth"
