A long time ago I had a dream in which I was flying. It was an amazing feeling. I didn’t have wings in that dream, I was simply flying through the sky a la Super Man — but without the fist in the air. It made me feel powerful, longing for more. But what does it mean?
If you’re flying in your dream it’s often a lucid dream. Lucid dreams are dreams in which you know you are dreaming. In Lucid dreams the dreamer can even control their dreams for a big part. They are often very realistic and vivid.
Flying In Your Dream
Flying can mean several things. If you are flying with ease and are enjoying the scene and landscape below you. Then this may suggest that you are on top of a situation that you have under control. But it may also mean that you have a new view on things. Flying dreams can also symbolize a strong mind and will. You feel like no one can pull you down or tell you what you can or cannot do.
If you have difficulties staying in flight in your dream. This means you lack of power in controlling your own things and situations, but it may also mean a lack of confidence. you may be struggling about what course you are on. Staying aloft or not? Obstacles such as power lines, trees or mountains may symbolize persons or things that stand in your way in your ‘waking’ life. You may want to figure out what or who is preventing you from moving further into your life. If you are flying but you feel fear, or that you are flying too high and it scares you. This may mean that you are scared to take challenges and of success. perhaps you’re just not ready yet to take the next step in life.
Dreams in which we are flying in can represent things that are beyond our limitations — because we can’t fly in real life. In your mind you can be anyone and anything.
