    How many of you have had dreams where your flying? Personally I have this dream often when I do have dreams. I usually flap my arms like a bird and start flying and soaring. My biggest fear when flying isn't falling, it's power lines.
    I always feel like power lines get in the way of my flight path.

    Hello Tofit, and welcome to the Dreamscape!

    Dreams about flying in various styles are very common, especially among creative people. Most of my enjoyable dreams involve flying in one way or another, anything from rocket-style flight at crazy high speeds to something simpler and slower like the flip-your-arms like a bird method that you have described in your post.

    Some of those high-speed flight dreams were the inspiration for the flying style displayed by some of my Mages, who are capable of attaining fantastic hypersonic speeds as they ride on their magical crystals!

    And now... Power Lines!

    You would be surprised to know just how many people complain about power lines showing up during their Flying dreams. It used to happen to me too, and it was very annoying since those endless power lines would just continue to appear no matter how high I would fly above the ground. I mean, I know that it would be impossible to find power lines like ten kilometers above open fields, and yet there they were anyway!

    Have you sometimes flown at high speeds, or is it always more like peaceful and slow?

    I’ve had flying dreams quite often but it wasn’t until recently that I realized it.

    In these dreams, me being able to fly is some kind of natural phenomena that begins with just placing with my arms outwards to the sides like I’m about to use my arms like wings, except I make little circling motions. The more important part is catching the wind, and when the wind is heavy enough I begin making small jumps and instead of landing back to the ground I stay at the hieght in which I jumped to. In order to go higher I just continue making those small jumps.

    In these dreams it feels completely normal though the people around me are shocked. It comes across like it’s a simple, easy thing to do and all I’ve done is figured it out. And while asleep it is an unequivocal fact I can fly and I accept that so strongly that when I wake up, I question reality for a split second.

    Hello Rex!

    I found it interesting, when you mentioned that Dream flying feels completely normal to you at the same time that nearby people are shocked at seeing you do this. In my case, it also feels very natural and instinctive to me... the difference is that when this happens, people (and other types of creatures as well!) display open hostility towards me together with shock and surprise.

    Just a few nights ago, a crowd of angry villagers tried to catch me but I managed to escape by quickly taking off from a high cliff.

    I believe that they thought I was some kind of witch, which is not surprising considering that many Witch characters in my dreams often fly a lot and very powerfully. They were scared of me, and I can understand them!

    Flying is definitely one of the best Dreamworld experiences that can be enjoyed.

    Hi,

    Had a flying dream once when I was maybe five or six. For some reason I was on top of the fridge and about to take off around the kitchen. Don't know why. I've always connected the dream with my fear of heights.

    Cheers, Greg.

    Hello Greg!

    I also still remember several dreams from my early childhood, but sadly most of them were nightmares. Your dream sounds sweet, and I am curious to know how did you manage to climb to the top of that fridge given the fact that you were so small back then...

    Did you take off and fly around the kitchen, or perhaps you woke up before that could happen?

    I have a healthy fear of heights too, which is curious considering that I am fascinated by flying and mountains and skyscrapers. Even more curious is that in my flying dreams I am never afraid of the height factor, who knows why... and in some of my dreams, I have flown so high that entire forests and cities look very small so far below me.

    The next time that I have a flying dream, I am going to tell everyone about it in this thread.

    Hi,

    Sorry, can't tell you. I'm one of those people who never remembers their dreams. And the tiny bit I do remember is like a second long scene of being on top of the fridge and about to take off and fly around the kitchen. But it must have been important since I can remember that!

    Cheers, Greg.

    I had frequent, vivid flying/soaring dreams as a child--freedom and broadened perspective and feeling safe as I seem to recall. Greatest fear was falling, which I would invariably do. I would try everything I could think of to stay in flight and remember the sheer terror of knowing that I was going to hit the ground. I think the dreams went away when I found a way, in the dream, to propel myself forward, like running through the air or leaping back up after barely touching ground (and thus not crashing). I rarely have those dreams anymore, but stress can manifest in myriad ways.

    Hello..
    dreams where you can fly represents “Freedom”, or escape from the pressure of the real world, the ground itself. If you dream that you are flying with easiness and you are enjoying the scene below, then it suggests that you are on top of a situation.

    I get them from time to time. For me it's the soaring/superman style flying but the quality can vary from dream to dream. I've discovered that bad guys, in fact very few other inhabitants of my dreamscape, can fly. So it's a great way to escape.

    Escaping in a dream has several descriptions, true..we cant remember our feelings in a dream. Dreamscape is trying to get rid of everyday real problems. Some dreams are interpreted as a salvation and personal exemption.
