It's hard to face reality sometimes after a dream of flying freely. According to the Dream Dictionary, flying has a lot of interpretations.
A list of questions to ask yourself when you wake up from a flying dream are here:
- Was I flying alone
- Did Anything stopped me
- Was I in control of my flight
- What was the weather like
- Where you scared
- Was I going up or down
- Easy flight or turbulent fight
- How was the mood in your dream. Where you happy or sad.
- What where you using in order to fly (Wings or rocket)
For the most part flying dreams are positive dreams. There are many common dreams that have very powerful meaning behind them. However, interpretation in its entirely is up to you to figure out.
A dream dictionary reports many interesting facts that can help us learn about our dreams.
- Crazy dream equals emotion: While it can be hard to believe that an oddball dream about your mother, a circus and a snowstorm can have any bearing on real life, there may be symbolism and potential meaning to be mined in every dream—you just have to look for it, says Harvard-trained psychotherapist Jeffrey Sumber. "The meaning of our dreams oftentimes relates to things we need to understand about ourselves and the world around us,” he says. Instead of shrugging off strange dreams, think about how they make you feel. “We tend to dismiss these dreams due to the strange components, yet it is the feeling we have in these dreams that matters most,” he explains. “Sometimes the circus and the snowstorm are just fillers that allow us to process the range of emotions we feel about our mother and give us the necessary distraction so we can actually experience that spectrum of emotion.”
- Tons of Dreams: It’s not just one dream per night, but rather dozens of them, say experts—you just may not remember them all. “We dream every 90 minutes throughout the night, with each cycle of dreaming being longer than the previous,” explains Lauri Quinn Loewenberg, a dream expert. The first dream of the night is about 5 minutes long and the last dream you have before awakening can be 45 minutes to an hour long.” It is estimated that most people have more than 100,000 dreams in a lifetime.
- Dream after you are awake? After a vivid dream it can be hard to fully wake up. It can be hard to concentrate until you get that dream replaced with reality. Or have you ever woken up from such a beautiful, perfect dream that you wished you could go back to sleep to soak it all up? This is how you can. Just lie still—don’t move a muscle—and you can remain in a semi-dreamlike state for a few minutes. “The best way to remember your dreams is to simply stay put when you wake up,” says Loewenberg. “Remain in the position you woke up in, because that is the position you were dreaming in. When you move your body, you disconnect yourself from the dream you were just in seconds ago.”
- Same dream over and over again. Loewenberg suggests looking for underlying messages in recurring dreams so that you can rid yourself of them.
For example, a common recurring nightmare people have involves losing or cracking their teeth. For this dream, it is recommended that people think about what your teeth and your mouth represent. To the dreaming mind, your teeth, as well as any part of your mouth, are symbolic of your words.
Paying attention to your teeth dreams helps you to monitor and improve the way you communicate. If you've had a dream or two about your teeth you might need to deal with someone you have to talk to. There might be an important personal issue that can only be dealt with your own words.
A strong suggestion by a well known neurologist is to enjoy your dreams. It's an open highway. No one knows what you dream. Enjoy it.
