Flying dreams fall under a category of dreams known as lucid dreams. Lucid dreams occur when you realize that you are dreaming and then take control of the dream. Many dreamers describe the ability to fly in their dreams as an exhilarating, joyful, and liberating experience.
- Dreams of flying may represent high hopes; feeling that nothing can hold you down or keep you from reaching your goals; and could indicate that you are feeling in control of your life and your emotions. Usually a sense of euphoria or freedom is felt when flying in dreams, perhaps signifying you have freed yourself of a sticky situation or have achieved a recent goal. Freud saw flying as representing sexual release.
- Dreaming you are airborne may indicate you are reaching new heights or levels of achievement in your career or you may be reaching higher levels of spirituality or consciousness; may also represent attaining or reaching for your high ideals or goals in life.
- Alternately, flying may be compensating for a lack of freedom in waking life or may suggest you are overlooking or avoiding something. It may also suggest that you need to see things from a higher perspective or to look at the big picture. While flying you may also be looking down on or feeling negatively about something or someone, possibly yourself.
- Having Trouble Flying in Dreams. Finding yourself able to fly only a few feet off the ground in dreams may be an indication that something is holding you down or holding you back in life or something is preventing you from reaching a goal. It may also symbolize a fear of succeeding or a fear to express yourself.
- Dreams about flying into wires or losing control may symbolize concerns and anxieties about the completion of a waking life goal or project or may be suggesting that you are focusing on things that could go wrong in life.
Flying represents control: If you are flying with ease and are enjoying the scene and landscape below, then it suggests that you are in charge and on top of a situation. You have risen above something. Flying dreams and the ability to control your flight is representative of your own personal sense of power.
Flying represents a new perspective: When you are flying, you have the ability to look down and get a wider perspective of things. As a result, your flying dream is telling you to look at the broader picture. From your higher vantage point, you can gain a new and different perspective on things.
Flying represents freedom: Your dream flight may be sending you a message that nothing is impossible; you can be anybody and do anything. Your ability to fly signifies hope, possibilities, reality and freedom of expression. It may also reflect your strong will and is a reminder for you not to give up. Nobody can tell you what you cannot do and accomplish. Such dreams can provide great motivation and renewed sense of freedom.
Flying represents spiritual connection: In some cases, your flying dream indicates that you have reached a higher spiritual connection. You are growing more in tune with your spirituality and your dream of flight is a reflection of this.
Flying represents escape: To dream of flying can also function as an escape from the stresses and pressures of your everyday life. Instead of confronting your daily problems, you take flight and try to get away from it all.
Flying represents inflated sense of self.
When you are flying, you may feel like you are a superhero. You feel invincible and undefeatable. Perhaps you think you are better than everyone else and have a tendency to look down on others. After all, when you are flying, you are actually looking down on them.
When analyzing your flying dream, consider the significance of the the height, direction and speed of your flight. Flying high and/or fast is analogous to your level of confidence. If you are flying low, then it indicates that you are content with the pace of your current life. Flying backwards implies that you are reminiscing about your past.Usually a flying dream is described as a positive and exhilarating experience, but if you are feeling fear while flying, then it suggests that you are afraid of new challenge and of success. Perhaps you are not ready to take the next step. Having difficulties staying in flight indicates a lack of power in controlling your own circumstances. Things like power lines, trees, or mountains may be obstacles that you encounter in flight. These obstacles symbolize something or someone who is standing in your way in your waking life. You need to identify what or who is trying to prevent you from moving forward. Difficulty flying may also be an indication of a lack of confidence, lack of motivation or some hesitation on your part. Perhaps you have set unrealistic goals for yourself and now you are struggling to meet those goals.
