Do you have a favorite dream? Perhaps one that reoccurs time after time.
Some of my dreams of flying were connected with nightmares and others were not. One of my most vivid dreams that I remember as a child, took place on the block of my childhood home. My home was on a slight hill and in my dream I would run from the top of the hill down the sidewalk and in my path were a line of monsters, maybe 4 wide waiting for me to approach them. As I got closer to them, I pushed off from the sidewalk and was able to fly over them just barely missing their outstretched arms. I’m sure there was a psychological reason for this dream.
Another dream was again, running down my street, pushing off and flying over the tops of the trees in my neighborhood. It was such an awesome feeling, the only thing that has come close to this feeling today was from parasailing or flying in an ultralight aircraft, which I did many years ago in Mexico.
When I dream of flying, I am primarily in a vertical body position unlike the horizontal flying position of superhero character Superman, although I have seen him hover in the vertical position at times.
Unfortunately, I rarely, if ever have dreams of flying anymore. I guess if I want that feeling again, I’ll have to go parasailing or ultralight flying again or maybe jump out of a plane…hmmm.
