These thrilling type dreams are fairly common and considered one of the top dream themes we get in our lifetime. Flying dreams can be extremely vivid as if we are superman for the night. As you soar high above the clouds and defy gravity these dreams hold great significance that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Dreams about flying

Analyse Your Flying Dream

Before you start analysing your dream you must take into consideration all the details of the dream. Once you have understood all the feelings and symbols, then you would have a better chance of decoding the flying dreams.

  • How are you are feeling when you are flying?
  • Where was your location?
  • What was the reason why you were flying? Was I stopped in flight?
  • Do you remember what events took place before flying?
  • How and where did you land? Did you land at ease?
  • Who was with you? Was I going up or down?


Flying reflects what might be going on in your life at the moment. You might be in a transitional stage feeling as if you can lift off at any moment. It could also suggest an elevated mood or taking off from something that was stagnated in life? You are high above people and life. These are very positive reflections on what might be to come in the future.

Sigmund Freud suggested that flying was linked to a sexual burst, possible for the first time. What part in your waking life is making you feel high and reaching new achievements? Could this relate to a relationship, job or travel? There might be some aspects of encountering personal freedom that was not reached in the past.

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.

Flying Dreams

Trouble Flying

Dreams, where you have trouble taking off, can be quite frustrating. Are you having trouble getting your feet off the ground? Does this sound familiar to your walking life? Having a tough time flying in your dreams suggest that someone or something is stopping you from moving to the next step in life.

To know what is holding you back from flying, try and remember who was with you in your dream. If you were alone and struggled to fly implies that you are lacking confidence within yourself. Let’s say if you had trouble taking off from your house. You may need to move out of your house!

Also many would dream of having trouble taking off from work. If this is the case it represents a lack of motivation to take it to another level.

Try and think what was stopping you from taking off in your dream whether it was you, a friend or a building that was in your way. These objects or dream symbols help us determine what is stopping us from moving up in the world.

Scared of Flying

Flying in a dream can either be exhilarating or a nightmare depending on the dream. Not being able to control your flight in your dream is rare but it does happen from time to time.

Scared of flying suggest a need for more control and balance in your life, afraid to make the next move. Are you trying to control too much in your life? Do you have trouble letting go of the past? Another possibility could be with your confidence. Do you have trouble setting goals too high you cannot reach?

Direction of Flight

It is important to know what direction you were going when you were flying high up in the clouds. Where are you flying upwards, downwards or backwards? If you are flying upwards in your dream suggest you are now on a new level spiritually. If you where flying downwards we are trying to get more in tuned to our unconscious.

If you are flying low to the ground it represents strength and determination in your life. If you are flying an aeroplane it means your not fully free to have fun but you’re almost there. If you are flying backwards suggests you want to relive the past and the good memories you experienced.
