I dream a lot.
I dream about flying, a very large house, and jogging very often. My other dreams are random, usually ‘one offs’, but occasionally I may have a similar dream at another time. The first three I listed are the main recurring dreams I have, and as I dream about them often I tend to remember them more.
I enjoy my flying dreams immensely. The freedom I feel, the views I can see, the crispness of the air that I feel when I fly are all very refreshing. These dreams are vivid, as flying isn’t a thing I can do naturally, but when I dream of flying it’s as though it is something I have always been able to do. Although, I do experience some rather embarrassing moments in my flying dreams from time to time.
The most embarrassing dream of flying I had was when I couldn’t get any height in my flight. Oh, I was flying – I knew that, but only about half a centimetre off the ground! My clothes were touching the ground I was that low, but I was off the ground. The height itself wasn’t as embarrassing as the speed. I was moving forwards at an exceptionally slow speed, far slower than walking. As I was outside, on a busy street, people had to walk around me. I could wave and speak to people who I knew, but they thought I was lying in the road. I was flying! If they’d have stopped and looked, they’d have seen that I was moving, but they had to go to wherever they were going to, and didn’t notice.
Writing about this dream has highlighted to me that it looks as though I was trying to bring attention to other people something I could do, but I wasn’t fast enough; or needed to aim higher to get people to see this thing that I could do. People were passing me by as I wasn’t allowing myself to be seen more. If only I could remember what I was doing in my real world when I had the dream, I could possibly act on it. Unless it was a prophetic dream, highlighting something that I need to do at some point in my future… I was moving forwards in my dream – it could indicate forward thinking… hmmm…
Another recurring flying dream I had is kind of the opposite to my low flying adventure. I’m flying high in the sky. Landing on rooftops. Performing somersaults in the clouds. Looking at my home town from completely different angles. I could fly at speed or slowly – I could even hover in the air, no movement at all. But I had a problem with landing. For some reason, I couldn’t land on the ground. I had to try to land on a wall or a fence and then jump off to the ground. Yes, it’s a little odd, I know… but it’s a dream – it’s not as though I’ve made it up! I’d come in to land perfectly. I’d have the wall in my sights, overshoot it, and land in a crumpled mess on the ground. I would get down to the ground, but not in the elegant way that someone who can perform somersaults in the clouds should do so.
Now, then. If the other dream was highlighting the fact that I need to aim higher, this one could be indicating that I need to remain grounded. I can do all of the flashy stuff if I want to do that, but remember to keep myself firmly on the ground. Don’t try to over-reach things, or I will be in a mess… hmmm again…
I very often dream of living in a very large house, or visiting a very large house, that has many rooms, or I have dreams that feature a particular room. I wrote once about a dream I had where I won £100,000.00 by managing to get into a room. I’ve had dreams where I’ve found a hidden staircase inside a built in cupboard, or behind a curtain, which led up to a completely new floor I had never seen before. The floor isn’t visible from outside the house(s) until after I’ve discovered it. And I’ve dreamt of staying in a house with lots of different levels on each floor. The corridors seem to meander their way around the house, and various rooms are off this corridor, either above or below floor level. Stairways and steps feature heavily in these dreams, as do doors.
Doors can indicate opportunities – I’m using the same kind of thinking that I used with the flying dreams now – and the rooms, especially the hidden rooms, could indicate new discoveries, or finding something really old. The stairs could indicate steps needed to find them – either the opportunities or the discoveries: to find either I always have to ‘take the first step’. Hmmm… once more.
And the dreams about jogging. Me jogging. Ha ha ha! That is more unbelievable than the flying dreams I have, yet they feel perfectly natural when I’m dreaming of jogging. I’m never out of breath, always look the part, and feel good when I’m completing my run. The jogging part itself could be my subconscious telling me that there are some things that I can do, even though I say to myself I can’t. And if I was to go for a jog, I would certainly feel very good with myself if I completed the whole circuit. Then again, the jogging could be an indicator to get a move on. Once I start what I want to do, I’ll feel good about that too. Plus I’ll feel even better when I can see that coming to completion. Hmmm… are there any other sounds to indicate thinking?
So, in conclusion, one interpretation of my dreams is that I need to reach higher. Perform well, and highlight what I can do really well. Don’t let opportunities pass me by, but also remember to keep myself grounded. I have to make the first step to get started, I will feel really good while I’m doing it, and look forward to the outcome. I only need to know what it is that I want to do and I’m away.
If my dreams are anything to go by, and my interpretation is right, I really could be flying very soon indeed. And I find that very exciting!
