No I am not Spiderman, I dont even have the magical powder of Peter Pan. This is just an illusion, a vivid dreams of floating and flying! What does it mean anyway? Do you still remember your most recent dreams? Many times they are forgotten after you are fully awake but some dream details stays for long, most if you dream that you are flying.
For sure it is a good feel to float high, and flying to great heights. Sometimes we have a fear of falling and loose our powers. And do you know that in general, they also mean good things for us? It is our mind working that we are into something high and marvelous! Flying dreams are very often a precursor for lucid dreaming, a dream state in which we are aware we are dreaming and can manipulate the outcome of the dream. Even in a dream state, most of us are aware that we can’t fly in normal life, thus on some level a flying dream likely coincides with dreaming lucidly for the vast majority of the population, though most awaken unaware of the fact that they were engaged in a lucid dream.
Once in a while, a flying dream will not go so well, such as when you can’t take off or you lose altitude or something is in your path and you can’t fly past or through it. These dreams tell us that we are frustrated or feel burdened, or that that we are not confident in our abilities. In these cases, re-evaluate your goals and find ways around anything that may be hampering your progress.
Having said that, interpretation of flying dreams is fairly simple. Something is generally going RIGHT in our lives! Occasionally, we may be flying to avoid something, but the flying in and of itself is still an enjoyable dream activity, and the WAY we do it may tell us more about ourselves than the actual flying.
Flying Free: Freely flying as high or as low as you wish using your arms or feet for direction, often with the ability to do acrobatics in the air is an indication that you feel really good about something in your life. You are likely very proud of an achievement at work or at home, and life is good.
Flying with Wings: The analogy to Angels and Birds is evident here. You feel that you are a strong force going into the future and that you have high principles and ethics that most mortals don’t have. You feel that you have risen above the riff-raff and are soaring to new heights with a clear vision.
Flying or Floating at Low Altitudes: Floating just above the ground by flapping your hands or arms or peddling your feet is an indication that you have lots of determination and that no matter how hard it gets, you feel you will succeed if you stay on course. This dream is an indication that relief from any setbacks is imminent.
Flying Using an Airplane or Other Flying Device: This dream signifies that you feel proud of your accomplishments and that you expect and get recognition and support from those around you. You are not soaring into the clouds on your own yet, but you feel the freedom that success and respect from others brings.
