Flying is one of the most common dream archetypal symbols, and it always means something specific to the dreamer. Generally speaking however dream research has uncovered themes associated with this common dream symbol. Transportation is one of them, and experiencing flying in your dream could suggest you need movement in your life in some way, shape, or form. Perhaps you need to take a different direction with a relationship or creative project. It could also mean that you need to rise above and look at the big picture. Some details are missing that you need to make a decision, and you won’t be able to see them unless you go high above and look down at them yourself. A flying dream could also be a signal of a lucid dream, one where you know you are dreaming. You will know this is the case if you are able to control your dream content. If not, pay attention to the details surrounding your flying experiences, as you are certainly being told to look closer at something you can’t see from where you are right now.
