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.

Spiritual Connection

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.

  • ESP
  • Clairvoyance
  • 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.

  • Resistance,
  • Afraid to take a chance,
  • Need for excitement,
  • Connected to your anxiety and fears,
  • Letting your fears control you.

Flying Dreams

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.

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 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.

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 »

Every dream I have I am either floating easily just above people looking down on them, usually no one seems to notice me there but recently I’ve been being noticed and people stop and stare at me in amazement. Sometimes I can go so high people loom like ants, I can go any direction I please, I dont flap my arms or anything im just in the air flying.. Im also aware that im dreaming and I can control my nightmares and get them to stop. I can’t remember having a dream where I haven’t flown in a long time.… Read more »

I had a dream where I was flying and levitating like Peter Pan. I was invited to a lecture, and soon as I got there we were put into groups. I didn’t know anyone in the room except for one person in my group, whom I last saw 20 years ago. She kept coming to me and I kept trying to keep my distance even though we were grouped together. I went outside and I just started to levitate and fly. I flew around just having fun, trying to see what I could do, how fast and slow I could… Read more »

Well this is the first time i experienced flying in my dream, we were at a festival ,with full of people. Suddenly i wanted to be alone, so went to a near by lone place, where i started to float as i walked, like how a possessed person starts to float on the air while exorcism. Chest first ,and slowly full body raised above the ground around one meter height. Then I cried out loud but the noise was not mine, it sounded a cry of an evil soul leaving a body, which didn’t like leaving. Then I found myself… Read more »

I come to a cliff and I see bright blue water and bluish white sky. The sun is shinning. I see a little beach off to the side and a fountain almost simular to the one in Washington DC and a group of seals splashing. I don’t remember taking the jump but I fly down towards the seals and just as I’m close enough I quickly fly upward like a swooping motion and wake up. However the event that took place before I come to the cliff, im in a familiar area of townhouses and the whole complex is being… Read more »

I had a dream that I was supposed to pilot a plane, but I couldn’t for some reason. In my mind, I’d done it before and had the knowledge to, but I couldn’t remember/do it in the moment. What could that mean?

I have been experiencing more and more flying dreams. I see myself flying during the day as well as the night. I hear the whoosh of wings but do not see them. I find these dreams exhilarating as I fly over land and sea. Yes, I am enjoying the ride.

I recently had a dream that I was flying with my husband (he is still alive). I was on his back and he started flying. We went upwards and saw beautiful green mountains below. I was a bit scared of falling, but at the same time I felt safe. We ended up going further up to the clouds where we stopped at a table of some sort with others there. But didn’t see my husband anymore.

I needed to go to this house, it was partly obscured by a spinifex covered sand dune, I didn’t recognise it I just knew I had to go there. I was with someone, not sure who they were but another person (I think they were male) was walking towards us from the house about 100yrds away. He had’n’t seen us but knew we were there. As soon as I recognised this person I was very scared. When the person I was with recognised this person they said run. I turned and started running but the oversized long black dress I… Read more »

I’ve only had a few flying dreams in my life. But I loved the feeling once I got over the fear I might fall. Every dream started the same soaring straight up to such heights it felt like I could see the entire earth below. This last dream I kept telling myself not to fear because I knew I was dreaming and I wouldn’t get hurt. When I returned to earth I was flying over people helping them from a man who was lying to them and using them. As I started to wake I lost more and more ability… Read more »
