Throughout our lifetime, we each have an average of 100,000 dreams. Even if you don’t remember when you wake up, you will probably have had around four to six dreams during your sleep. Dreams are extremely powerful tools and they hold important messages from our subconscious, giving us information about what is going on in our waking lives.
Dream interpretation is an ancient practice, dating back to 3000-4000 B.C. There are countless books, articles and websites around the study of dreams, and dream meanings are one of the most common questions that psychics receive. To help you better understand what your dreams mean, we’re launching a new series of dream interpretation blogs, explaining the meaning behind some of the most common and reoccurring dreams. The first in this series will look at flying dreams.
Flying dreams are one of the most common dreams people research the meaning for. Though they can be interpreted in a number of different ways, most people will agree that flying dreams are usually exhilarating and liberating. Flying dreams actually fall under the lucid dream category, which is when you are aware that you are dreaming; we know we obviously can’t fly in real life, so we embrace and enjoy the experience while we can, in our sleep.
There are some very important factors you need to consider when interpreting a flying dream. How did you feel when you were flying? Were you excited, or scared? Are you flying with ease, or are you struggling to stay airborne? Are you flying away or towards something, or simply flying for the fun of it?
If you’re flying with ease and are enjoying the experience, and are able to admire stunning views of the surrounding scenery, this suggests that you are on top of and in control of a situation. Perhaps you’ve reached a goal you’ve been working towards for a while, or you have overcome a difficult situation in your life and have come out of it a better person.
The successful flying dream is often an indicator of some sort of advancement in your life; it is a sign that you are moving up and taking the next step. It could also mean that from this achievement, you have gained a new, higher perspective on things. Being able to control your flight is a symbol of power; you are completely in control of your life and your destiny.
However, if you are struggling with flight, it can often mean the exact opposite. Struggling to control your flight indicates that you are feeling like things are out of your control, and you are struggling to gain power over a situation.
If you are struggling to take off from the ground, it could indicate that you are feeling frustrated and stuck in a situation. This suggests that whatever you are aiming for is out of your reach, and it could be a good idea to reevaluate your goals; perhaps you are aiming too high, and need to lower your expectations? Or maybe you need to reconsider your plan of action.
If you were initially flying well but are now struggling to remain airborne and are losing altitude, this suggests that you are in a situation that you are losing control of. You are most likely struggling to deal with an issue you are facing, and feel like you are failing. Maybe you are out of your depth, and have taken too much on, too soon.
If you come across a number of things that prevent you from flying, such as power lines, trees, planes, etc., this indicates that you are facing obstacles to your success in real life. Something or somebody is in your way, and is preventing you from achieving your goal. If you are feeling fear while you are flying, this suggests that the thing in your way is you; you are scared of taking the next step and are hindering your own success.
If you are struggling to fly in your dream, you need to take some time to reconsider your goals and ambitions. Maybe your goal is a too ambitious, and you should consider aiming for a smaller, more achievable goal, and then work your way up to the next step. Or perhaps it’s a sign that you should ask for help with your goal or situation, to help you achieve it.
