Flying dreams are relatively common dreams which sometimes comes under the lucid dream category – a type of dream where you feel like you can control the outcome and these can be very vivid.
The general symbolism of a flying dream is that of feeling free of inhibitions and having a sense of power. However it is worth considering where you are flying and how you feel about the journey to get a better understanding of the dream.
If you dream that you are flying high above everything, it is easy to control your speed and direction and you are generally enjoying the journey this reflects a certain amount of happiness and freedom that you feel you have in your waking life. You feel like you are in control of the decisions you make and this in turn gives you independence and the courage to take on new challenges. This dream will leave you feeling motivated and excited about the future.
If however you dream that you are flying but you keep running in to obstacles or it is difficult to stay levitated this reflects the conflicts you experience in your daily life. Perhaps you feel like you are not in control of your life or that you have been treated unfairly and this makes your journey more difficult. Do not be put off however, the very fact that you are trying to fly shows that you will not let obstacles stand in your way and you will not be dragged down to the level of those around you. You are determined to succeed and the challenges you overcome can only make you stronger.
If you are afraid of flying, or you are scared of flying too high this shows a lack of confidence on your part. Remember that like riding a bicycle, you must believe in yourself to achieve extraordinary results.
If you are not sure, seek reassurance from those around you that you are on the right path and you will be pleasantly surprised.
