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.

I don't really get flying dreams. It is the dream of just about eveyr human to have the ability to fly, but to be honest, they're not that great. Dreams just seem too weak to actually enjoy them.

Flying dreams are something I used to have all the time when I was younger, but not so much anymore. It was always a result of merely willing it, never anything else. When I was little, I would wake up so certain that it could really be done if I just tried hard enough. :)

Voneda: Probably means that you're doing something about the problems in your life, instead of just succumbing to them. Now, about me, I don't really fly in my dreams, but I do often wind up in states of zero-gravity. Hurts when I finally hit something though, like a lot.
