    I had one this morning after not having one for maybe 10 years or more. I think it means you are happy in life at the moment. Last year was horrible. Breakup, bad tenant, recession. My flying dream was really long. I was opening a jacket and flew over a beautiful forest somewhere using the jacket to fly. In the past it was just my arms lifting me up. It was so fun and beautiful being way up there. What are your flying dreams?

    I had them frequently as a boy, less so as an adult. I usually fly by a kind of aerial swimming, using my arms as in the breast stroke. I can go upwards nearly vertically, or horizontally, or anything in between, regardless.

    Sometimes I just stand there and go upwards, more like floating.

    The views can be spectacular as occaisonally I approach outer space. This sometimes leads to flying, unprotected, in outer space, or walking on the surface of hostile planets like Mars, or moons like Europa; and once, flying through the atmosphere of Jupiter, soaring over the Great Red Spot!

    I think it`s supposed to symbolize freedom, or the desire for it, etc.

    I have them all the time.

    In my dreams, superpowers feel like natural abilities, like being able to point or kick. For me, it came from reading comic books before bed for many years. Sometimes in real life, I feel hindered because I can't launch myself up in the sky to quickly get to where I want to go.

    There are times when flying feels like a struggle and I'm kept afloat by willpower. When I swing my arms ahead of me it seems to work better. Try that!

    Other times I will speed around, hovering a foot off the ground, and it requires no effort. Always a joy when it takes no effort.

    Have these dreams a couple of times a year, but it's been a while since the last one. I fly not very far up, just by doing the butterfly-stroke from swimming without the arms. Usually it develops from walking in a group or with someone and then starting to fly so I'll be there/wherever fastest.

    Meanwhile, the person sleeping next to you wakes up and sees you humping the mattress.

    Lol. I think he would have told me by now.

    He also knows the movement. I taught it to him in a swimming pool years ago. Unfortunately he did it with his eyes closed and hit his head on the bottom of the pool.

    Yes that is exactly the same arm movement I had experienced. Yes the views are amazing above the trees.

    You mean lucid dreaming? I read somewhere that people went cray cray after doing it.

    Yes, have had them since I was a mere lad. If you are flying & have any degree of control over it, you are "Lucid Dreaming."

    I've found it to be magnificently enjoyable!






    ...you'll find lucid dreaming far-more productive & less difficult if you have done NOTHING sexual for a period of 30 to 60 days . . .

    I love having those dreams... usually I'm just floating in the air with my arms by my sides, flying through the air. It's a wonderful feeling.

    I didn't fly so much as bounce. I would fall and bounce up. My trajectory would take me a good 60 feet or so in the air in an arc before I came down again, over and over. Great views up there!

    I used to have flying dreams as a child; but they mysteriously stopped when I started taking flying lessons.

    Since then I've accomplished that childhood dream, and fly for a living. icon_cool.gif

    It's been a while since I've had a flying dream, but I remember one in particular that came during a very stressful time. I can't remember the exact scenario, but I recall just realizing suddenly in my dream that I could fly and it was pretty much like Superman flying, except with my arms to my sides rather than out in front.

    The best part was feeling so intensely happy and releived after I woke up. It was almost like a dream message to reassure me that I had no need to be worried and that everything would work out fine.

    Regarding lucid dreams--I've had them before and can typically "step into" my dreams and change the outcomes, espeically if I'm in a dream that starts to veer into something scary or stressful.

    lol well if you guys dont tell anyone. I dont really have flying dream. My super power of choice would be iceman or fireman. Actually any element will do because normally they grant you other abnormal ability. Like if you want to fly... you would want to have the power over air(wind). I'm overly creative and nerdy about this. icon_redface.gif

    Exaggeration at best; fear mongering at worst.

    That might be your experience but I doubt any significant connection and suspect it more an issue of your own comfort level with your own sexuality than of any dreaming ability you may enjoy. Many of the kids today are sexing up their dream characters just for kicks & giggles during their lucid dreaming.

    I get flying dreams rarely, but damn, they're fun.
    Typically, I'm flying fairly low, as if I could run out of energy to keep myself up at any moment, but it's natural, and only requires arching my back.

    I tend to keep my arms by my side like Isis, not like Captain Marvel
