Flying Dreams
Up..Up...and Away!

How wonderful is it when you experience flying dreams!

The immense sense of freedom and confidence is something I have never experienced when I am awake.

With flying dreams you can escape from anything…you can go anywhere and see everything.

But…it is not always pleasant.

Sometimes you lose air at a crucial part in the dream and suddenly can’t fly anymore or you can crash into things and need a bit of practice.

So….what does flying in dreams mean?

As with all these common themes your personal feelings as you are experiencing flying gives away the meaning behind these dreams.

Is it a pleasant, thrilling experience where you feel you could achieve anything?


Is the experience fraught with anxiety and fear that you will fall or lose the ability?

If it is a joyful experience you are probably feeling confident in being able to get where you want to go, that you have the skills necessary to achieve your dreams.

If in your dreams you are flying away from something or someone you may be shirking responsibility.

If you are trying to get off the ground and can’t or if you can get off the ground but maintaining your flying takes a lot of hard work…this may mean you feel your freedom is limited by something. And it can mean you feel you have difficulty controlling what happens in your life.

Flying in dreams is quite common for dreamers who achieve a state of Lucid Dreaming. Lucid dreaming is the ability to realize you are dreaming while asleep. This is a great skill to achieve as it opens up a whole new world of possibilities such as the ability to control your flying and where you go.
