Flying Dreams: Lucid
Popularized by the Hollywood blockbuster Inception, a lucid dreams is defined as the ability to take control over your settings, narrative and even your environment. Flying dreams and lucid dreaming seems to go hand and hand, but there is a fine line between the ability to “control your dreams” and randomly flying in your dream.
It is not uncommon for people to practice the art of lucid dreaming just to experience the amazing rush of flying. The feeling can be as euphoric as being induced by a drug.
Alternatively, this is not actually necessary for a dream to be described as lucid. It has long intrigued scientists as it incorporates self-awareness and control, which are elements of wakefulness into dreaming. In order to properly decode the meaning of your dream you will have to distinguish if your dream was in fact lucid.
Benefits Of Lucid Dreaming:
- Overcoming fears,
- Help solving problems,
- Stop nightmares,
- Connecting with your inner self.
Analyzing Flying Dreams
Did you know that our dreams speak to us in a language often in images and metaphors relating to our personal lives. Thus becoming a personal guide hinting at your weakness, strengths and future possibilities. While flying could be classified under a “lucid type” dream it actually contains very positive symbolism.
People who often experience flying dreams notice a connection to a new transitional phase in their lives. In fact this can be mimicked as being able to take off randomly at any given moment. In life we all experience exciting times that make us happy we are living on this earth.
These powerful symbols reflect during specific times in your life where change is imminent. However you will need to figure out if flying is relating to an internal or external happening.
Not to be discouraged if you only flew for a short period of time, or maybe you jumped high up but landed – these dreams are hinting at not giving up and keep trying.
There seems to be a connection between flying and possible spiritual ascension – is the process of spiritual awakening that moves you into a higher frequency. Similar accounts have shown that astral projection and outer body experiences tend to occur during times of spiritual awakenings, or increased psychic abilities.
In most cases flying can be comparable or related to an O.B.E or astral projection. If flying or floating in dreams tend to mimic the experience felt during an outer body experience then its possible the dreamer may have an increased vibrations.
For the most part once you have a dream flying without any difficulty it is a good omen that will bring future luck and self guidance.
- Increased intuition
- Living in the moment
- Inner peace
Trouble Staying In The Air?
Struggling to fly can be a frustrating experience as you might only get a couple seconds in the air. In some cases dreamers often experience lifting off the ground but coming right back down. These dreams are very symbolic that suggests something might be holding you back from advancing to the next stage in life.
Your dream might provide you with clues to show you where you might be lacking confidence or advancement. You can reflect on the people around you, location and the context.
Try and think what was stopping you from taking off in your dream whether it was a you, a friend or a building that was in your way. These objects help us determine what is stopping us from moving up in the world.
- Stuck in life
- Trying to get to the next level or advance
- Wanting to experience a thrill but fears are holding you back
- Close to achieving your goals
- Risk taking
Scared of Flying Dreams
Since these dreams tend to be extremely vivid and the single thought of falling can bring you to the ground. Heights can either be an exhilarating or nightmarish experience.
Being afraid to fly usually donates to the dreamers fears that have manifested in their heads. The ego is responsible for stopping you from enjoying the fruits of life, to much negative thinking stops you from having fun.
You might want to examine if you have control issues or trouble of letting go of the past. Maybe it’s connected to trouble setting goals too high you cannot reach.
- Afraid to take a chance,
- Need for excitement,
- Connected to your anxiety and fears,
- Letting your fears control you.
It is important to know what direction where you where going when you were flying high up in the clouds. Flying upwards in your dream suggest you are now on a new level spiritually. If you were flying downwards we are trying to get more attuned to our unconscious.
If you are flying low to the ground it represents strength and determination in your life. If you are flying backwards suggests you want to relive the past and the good memories you experienced.
Hovering or flying over water bring your awareness to concurring your emotions. It will be metaphoric for being on top your feelings. Flying over mountains connects you with the spiritual side. These are both positive dream symbols.
Gliding over cities, buildings and houses are common lucid type dreams having the dreamer feel as they are superman. These dreams could suggest control over your mind, body and soul.
Dreams of flying life like a bird brings your focus on your own personal freedom as well being free spirited.
Flying A Plane In Dream Meaning
You have a chance to become a pilot for the night. Flying a plane is a very positive dream symbol that brings your attention to control over you next destination. Planes take us from one destination to another. This would be metaphoric as to what is currently going on during your daily life. Experiencing turbulence or crashing suggest issues reaching the next stage.

Recently, I have been trying to figure out what a dream meant in my youth. As a teenager I was in a lucid dream, where i was aware i was in my bed, and at the end of my bed I saw a wizard / old man. He was short, floating at the end of my bed, had a gown, pointed hat, and staff. I was completely aware of my surroundings, I was laying in my bed, which was aligned north to south. My head was ion the south end. As I looked at him, he simply stared at me.… Read more »
All my life I’ve had flying dreams. When I was a kid I would dream about trying to run off the porch of my childhood home and leap into the sky. I would get a few feet into the air and float back down. Extremely frustrating. During this time period I was in an abusive home and felt stuck. Now, years later I am having flying dreams again. They are different though. I recently had a lucid flying dream where I was on a hill, jumped into the air, and started flying. I experienced the same force trying to pull… Read more »
I was laying here with my anxiety felt like normal night I thought I was awake I felt normal I remember slight chest pains but it’s the normal kind that I always feel nothing terrible. I swear I was awake but I must have been sleeping. Then I felt like a burst like a wind so strong that I couldn’t hold myself than I was like flying so fast like the speed of light. I couldn’t see anything. Then I stopped and was in this room by myself it was empty nothing around anywhere like an echo room that empty.… Read more »
Hi Kiley, Whilst I can’t analyse your dream I can share mine with you. I lost my mother last May and her twin sister 2 weeks later. Recently I had a dream and I’m not sure when it happened but remembered it today. I was with a few people in a countryside location and not sure where. I levitated slowly about 8-10 meters off the ground then moved forward and upward and moved freely through the air. This happened a couple of times in different locations. I now look at this as rising up and moving forward. The feeling from… Read more »
I have flying dreams. Not often, but just as mentioned above, it’s when I am in situations of great change and possibilities. It’s never been easy tho, i used an example for a work friend to describe i remember, i usually have to jump off the table or something and before I hit the ground I need to front flip 90 degrees so my feet are higher off the ground than my head. So, again exactly what’s mentioned above the fears of failure holding me back. Spot on!
I have able to fly in my dreams all of my life!!!!! I have been everywhere! It is an amazing feeling to be able to fly, the first dream of flying I flew from one city to another, now I can just fly anywhere I want, wake up, then go back to sleep and continue on with the same dream of flying!!!❤️
Sounds like you’re remote viewing. Have you ever gone to the moon?
12/6/22- Today I dreamt about floating/flying again. But this time, I was showing others that I can fly and was even trying to teach someone. The first scenario involved flying while working out, I was jogging with a woman and as I began to jog I decided to fly intermittently. The woman was surprised so I was trying to teach her how to fly but she couldn’t do it. My thoughts in reality: I’ve been talking about working out again recently and this woman may be my ex-best friend that I used to work out with. We are no longer… Read more »
what about seeing a lot of people just flying around. no planes just people in the air.
You would benefit your situation greatly if you acquired one or the other of T. Lobsang Rampa’s books on Astral traveling. What you describe is exactly what one experiences when astral traveling.Those other people are dreamers like yourself. This can be done intentionally. Look for “The Third Eye” or “You … Forever”.
What about flying on a bird?
Recurring dream of flying…getting higher with each dream. I can control how high I go most of the time. There have been times, in the beginning, that I was unable to control when I would come down before I was ready. However, last night I had a combined recurring dream. i dreamed about several people who have passed (not recent). I was flying after playing a part in their death. There was one family member in this dream who is not dead…but she died in the dream. This has happened repeatedly as of late. However, this is the first time… Read more »
I am having repeat flying dreams for what seems like endless periods. I’ve had floating for a long time, then it was jumping to heights that are terrifying, then ability to combine flying, floating and invisibility at will, under and over water. I didn’t know dreams were called “lucid” but I feel conscious during my dreams and can change them as I go. I once created a fashion line that had never seen in real life and thought i wanted everything in that line. This has continued to bigger things, like full length movies with really cool plot but items… Read more »
I was flying in my dream and it’s has be reuccuring many times, last one I remember whe I was flying and I saw a Caucasian man hanging on a tree very exhausted. All of a sudden I saw someone gave me a sack filled with water he asked me to reach out to the man on the tree and give him some water. I went down manage to give him the water and he was so excited.
I am 64 yrs old and have had a reoccurring dream of flying since I was young. In every dream, I am able to lift off. But I am never high enough and hands are always too close to me trying to catch me. Often in these dreams, when I am able to fly higher, I encounter multiple electric wires thst impede my ability to get past them. Very rarely, do I fly high. 50 + years of these same dream.
I see the exact same thing, electric wires impeding my flight. I try to avoid them but feels scary because I might get a shock.
I dream often about being able to fly but the strange thing is in my dreams no one cares. Often in my dreams I try to show people I can fly but they just ignore me. I spend most of the dream trying to get people to take me seriously. It matches my reality because my successes go unnoticed by people and disregarded completely. I spend a lot of time or waste time trying to get people to give me credit that they just refuse to give me. Responses are usually mean spirited. May explain my anxiety about doing anything… Read more »
Have similar dream. Flying over city and before people, some notice, some was wondering how I do it. And I just place my hand palm downward earth and I feel pressure rising under palms ,and I feel like air become like a sand (not exact, but) and I can just push myself away in the air and i fly. It’s happens in milliseconds . I can push my palms as a bird , propelled my self upward. And then I can turn left and right in the air without any difficulties.
Have similar dream as well on many occasions, however, these dreams have disappeared now. I am now in my 40s and do not see these dreams for almost 3 years.
I fly in my dreams by raising my arms up and consciously forcing energy behind/beneath me, it feels strange at first. At about 20 ft up, I make the decision to move to the left or right and ascend 80 more feet. I rarely see people, only landmarks, the tops of trees. When I do set back down. I’ll often float back up, and have to force myself back to the ground.
I have this same recurring dream sometimes it’s very exciting as I can go wherever I want but at other times I feel very alone because no one else can fly with me they just watch in awe and shock.
I had a funky dream in which I had a scaled down version of a plane engine/propeller attached to my back and I had carried someone with me as I flew back and forth across the Atlantic – from the UK to the US and back again. I was getting ready to take off again for the US when my dog woke me up.
My Flying Dreams most likely tells me that I should fly in a jet overseas as to find my Love.
The only dreams I’ve ever dreamed of for the past months were all about flying by treading in the air while being able to control it freely. The last dream I dreamed of was I was in the future. The stairs were holding up kind of like a mall but outside in the wilderness. I used that to get around 90 percent of the time. I met someone- my age, and he or she when out to the mountains surrounded by water and he or she also flew the same way I did. The dream seems burry after that. This… Read more »
