Above – The physical placement of items in dreams is essential to understanding the symbolism of the dream. If an item is above another item, then it in a superior position, either morally, socially or emotionally. You may also be placed in this dream. If something is above you, then it could be a threat, especially if it is positioned to fall on you. If you are above something else, then you are in a position of control over it. There may be an aspect of authority present.
