Passages also represent the transitions between the various stages of our lives.

Lift: A lift usually indicates how we deal with information. For instance, a lift going down would suggest going down into the subconscious, while a lift going up would be moving towards the spiritual. It is believed that in the sleep state we leave our bodies.

Thus descending in a lift and getting stuck represents the entrapment of the spiritual by the physical body.

Rooms:In a dream can describe various parts of our personalities or levels of understanding, but often signify either the womb or the mother figure.

Kitchen:Thus the kitchen would be the home making part of us whereas the sitting room would be the more relaxed, comfortable side.
