Dreams About Jumping

Jumping in your dreams is a very stimulating experience that often leaves the dreamer feeling rejuvenated in the morning.

Other dream interpretation sites explain jumping in dreams as merely as a symbol of overcoming obstacles in your life.  I am sure this is true to a certain extent, but they have actually missed the true symbolic meaning on why we jump in our dreams.

Jumping In Our Dreams mainly consist of leaping over buildings, water, reptiles, walls, and sometimes if we get high enough we may even float in the air. Due to its close association with flying, jumping in our dreams often leads to new advancements, breakthroughs, spiritual ascension and overcoming major challenges that once hindered us in the past.

Since our dreams often communicate with us in metaphors we must approach the symbol of “jumping ” relating to the things that we are overcoming in our lives.

Because you are not technically flying and being pulled down by gravity it becomes an indication not to give up on your goals, and with a little more patience you will soon achieve it.

If or when you obtain this goal in your life your dream will tell you this by allowing you to fly like superman for a night. These lucid dreams appear only when the dreamer has reached this new found freedom and is now ready to transition.

I feel that way sometimes. That I’ve gone too high. But I usually find myself landing on a tree or building. And if I do go back to the ground I seem to slow down before I land on my feet.
