Recurrent flying dream
Since I was a child I've had several dreams about flying. However, the ability to fly in my dreams is not freely given, I always have to make a great effort to learn the skill. My mother, for example, tells me that when dreaming of flying she flies freely, and that it is an incredibly freeing sensation.
Well, I never felt that. Flying dreams for me have always been nice dreams, but I don't have the sensation of complete freedom that some people describe. The "flavour" of the dream is always similar, I am learning how to fly, either by myself or with help (once it was a flying bicycle), and I have to do a great effort to lift off and stay in the air. It feels good, new, and I know that I need to keep working and working in order to master it. As I practice, flying becomes a little easier and I am able to stay in the air for longer. Those dreams always finish with me flying a little bit better, but aware that I need to work a lot more in order to be able to stay in the air.
2 days ago I had a slightly different dream, but once again, a similar "flavour". In the dream I discovered that I had some supernatural abilities and was learning how to move things around without touching them, as well as floating myself off the ground. The dream had that same theme of having to work very hard to achieve it, and getting better at it with practice. Eventually I ended up floating and almost flying. The dream finished there, as it always does, with me getting better at it and the prospect of getting even better with plenty of practice.
The only thing that crosses my mind to interpret these dreams, is that working hard for whatever I am fighting for is crucial. Either that, or that I tend to work hard. Not sure if I'm missing something here, the dreams do seem quite straight forward, but I'm not very good at understanding them.
If anyone has any futher thoughts, they would be most welcomed :)
