The Meaning of Flying Dreams
Dreams about Flying Dreams, interpreting your bad dreams, learn what they mean!  Find out now FREE! The meaning of flying in dreams is usually very positive. Most people experience the flying sensation as being pleasant. It is usually accompanied by a feeling elation and freedom. It can predict that you will be soaring to new heights in your life.

Sometimes the meaning of flying in dreams is fear, especially if you have a fear of heights of falling. If you fall from a great height in a dream, it can symbolize enormous anxiety about the future or what you have. It would most certainly symbolize a fear of a fall from grace, but not necessarily predict one as not all dreams are prophetic in nature.

Dreams about flying can also symbolize freedom from troubles. It can literally mean that you are as free to fly as a bird. If you dream you are flying around in the sky, it may be represent the expansion or elevation of your spiritual life. Freud interpreted dreams of flying to mean the release of sexual tension.

If you do have such a dream, ask yourself what it is that you feel you are being released form. It may be a difficulty or emotional problem that has been plaguing you for some time. Many people who suffer from depression know that it is lifting because they experience the elation of a flying dream. The meaning of flying in dreams is almost always positive for those who suffer from mental illness.

One risk in a flying dream is that of flying too high. The myth of Icarus, from ancient Greece warns us not to fly too high. If you do have a flying dream where you have gone to heights you havenít before, then it is possible that you are being over egotistical.

If you feel you have left your body while dreaming and are flying around the room, it can sometimes mean that you are experiencing a health problem. Many people who consume codeine products and opiates will have dreams that they are flying or that they have left their body and are flying around the room.

From ancient times until now, flying dreams have also been known to mean that a personís soul has left the mortal planes and is meeting higher authorities on the astral planes. The Native Americans, the Babylonians, the Hindus, the Tibetan Buddhists and many other culture claims this light body, which is a mirror of our physical body, leaves the body during sleep and consorts with departed souls, angels, and beings that live in other dimensions.

Some people also dream that they are traveling to visit a loved one who is not with them. Often during these dreams, the person flying to the lover sees them in bed. So if you have a dream about flying, then it is possible you are participating in a bit of astral travel. Many people purposefully try to dream they will visit a lover during the night by telling themselves they will envision it before they go to sleep.

Last night I had a dream where I was flying in the sky I felt so free of eveything. When I would land on my feet I knew I had to keep it a secret. I was so happy while I was in the sky.And when my feet tuched the ground I felt humbled out. I was safe. What does this mean.

I have had several dreams about flying. Usually Iím in some type of vehicle: car, truck, rollercoaster car, motor cycle, bus. You name it and I have been flying in it. When these dreams happen there are tons of people around admiring the sky, yet no matter how much I wave and yell none of them seem to notice me at all. Not even people I know down the on the streets see me. One thing that is odd, like flying in a vehicle unnoticed isnít odd enough, is that the dreamís weather always seems to match the weather of my awake day of the next day. I laugh that I guess I would make a great weather woman.

Lynne: It means that you think that he is in love with you, or you in love with him. And you want him.

I had a dream of flying in a car., I was the driver and the guy in the back seat was an in-law making advances. I warned him if he didn't stop we would crash. What does this mean?

It is an absolute coincidence that I've read your insights into dreams about flying because just a week ago, I had a dream that I was flying whenever I wanted to. Earlier, when I had dreams of flying, I was never very sure in the dream that I would be able to fly at will.

I used to have flying dreams before. I rarely have them now. I was actually more of leaping from one place to the other rather than flying. It used to be exactly like the guy in the picture above is doing. I didn't really think much of them when I had them. Thinking back now, I realise it was at a time when I was really progressing in my life.

Looked up Freud, Sigmund Freud right? Maybe you should write an article on him sometime, there's a lot of information about him on the internet. I mean, he was born 150 years ago.
