I dreamed that I could fly in
the air, rose above the town below, and high into the
night sky. It felt wonderful. I had no fear and could
float gently down to earth whenever I wanted. Charles

Flying Dream - Psychological Meaning:
To dream of flying is usually a pleasant experience
and is accompanied by a sense of exhilaration and freedom.
It usually feels completely natural as if we have somehow
always known how to do this. Rarely is the dream accompanied
by a fear of heights or of falling. Flying may
symbolise liberation from something that's been troubling
you. The obstructions and shackles that have held you
down have been released and you can now experience the
same sense of freedom that we see in the birds that
soar in the sky. The sky may symbolise consciousness
and spirituality so to dream of flying can represent
the expansion of your awareness and the unfolding of
your higher self. (Freud of course
took a more materialistic view: to him flying dreams
represented sexual release.)
Nevertheless, flying also has its perils. The ancient
Greek myth of Icarus warns us not to fly too high. Your
dream may show that you are being over ambitious.
INTERPRETING FLYING DREAM MEANING
What is it I am being released from? Think about the
things that have been troubling you of late. Perhaps
the difficulty or emotional problem that has grounded
you for so long is not as bad as you thought. Sometimes
it is important to tread the paths of life lightly.
Let the freedom, gentleness and carefree feeling of
the dream be expressed in your behaviour.
Do I feel anxiety or fear? You may thrill at the feeling
of risk that your dream gives you. If so, you may want
to take more risks in your life with, for example, your
work or a relationship. If you feel trepidation and
alarm you may be over-reaching yourself and need to
get a firmer footing in your life. Your dreams and ambitions
may be too grandiose and not in accord with what you
can realistically expect to achieve.
FLYING DREAM - What do Dreams about Flying mean?
INTERPRETING A FLYING
DREAM MEANING MYSTICAL MEANING
In ancient times, a person who dreamed of flying was
considered to have entered the realm of the immortal
gods. The Native Americans, the Babylonians, the Hindus,
the Tibetan Buddhists and many other traditions claim
that we all have a light body that can leave the physical
body during sleep. The light
body can travel great distances and even into other
dimensions that mystics call the astral planes. Here
we can talk to our friends who also travel the dimensions,
communicate with the people of the spirit world, or
learn from the advanced souls the men once called gods
and angels. Many scientists believe that there is empirical
proof that out of body travel is possible. More about Auric Light Cleansing here.
