Elevators represent the rise and fall of social or professional rank. An empty elevator signals a missed opportunity; whereas if it is full, there are many people who aspire to be at the same level where you are. If you are locked inside it possibly means that you refuse to evolve. In the event that the elevator comes from the basement it means that there are certain ideas in the dream that come from your unconscious. The act of ascending indicates a higher and more objective point of view. You will be more rational but do not forget your instinct and intention at any time. Modern superstitions consider the omen to be good if the elevator goes up, and bad if it goes down.

Types of sleep
There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
Dreams reflect our actions that we have already performed. Most of us have dreams activities relating to our past life. One of the common dreams that every individual has gone through is their experiences during the school life, where you would get images of teacher hitting you, making you feel numb and shameful.
