Dreams of flying occur during exhilarating or empowering points in your life. You may be dreaming and suddenly ‘wake up inside of the dream’ to realize that anything is possible and that you can fly. This is an aspect of the psyche exploring potential against self-imposed limitations. Flying can symbolize aspirations and the ability to achieve your goals. The ability to fly in a dream can also be expressing a sense of power and accomplishment. It encourages the idea of how closely experience is tied to thought and beliefs. The flying dream generally occurs during periods of successful achievement or heightened inspiration. See Airport and Airplanes.
