Dreams are an incredible thing. Sometimes they last a mere split second, whereas other times they seem to go on forever. Sometimes a dream is so lifelike that you may actually believe the events occurred in real life, whereas other times a dream is so ridiculous that you can’t even comprehend what’s going on. Dreams are a subconscious reflection of what’s going on within our mind. Oftentimes our dreams can teach us things about ourselves that we may not have otherwise realized. I think that it’s important to look into our dreams to find out what our subconscious mind is trying to tell us. This month, we’re going to feature a new dream symbol each week, describing what the symbol might possibly mean and how to deal with the information it reveals. This week, that symbol is flying.
Have you ever had a dream where you yourself were gliding through the air, soaring over buildings and trees, and loving every minute of it? This type of dream suggests that you are on top of something. Maybe you’ve overcome a recent struggle at work; maybe you feel in control of your life in general. Think about how the feeling of being “on top” specifically relates to you, and make an effort to keep doing what you’re doing in order to stay there.
On the other hand, you may have a dream that you’re having trouble staying in flight. Maybe a tree is in your way; maybe you just can’t seem to stay up in the air. Obstacles like these suggest that someone or something is in your way. Someone or something may be holding you back from moving forward in your life. It could be a friend or family member; it could be a lack of resource like time or money; it could even be your very own feelings of fear or self-consciousness. Take the time to think about who or what could possibly be in the way of your path and formulate a plan to overcome the situation, even if it’s one baby step at a time.
Have you ever had a dream that you were flying? Describe it for us below!
