It is a metaphor of personal power in dreams. Flying to escape a pursuer suggests confidence in one’s ability to avoid, or out maneuver, fears and problems in our life.
Difficulty gaining elevation (we have to “bounce” off the ground, or fly around obstacles), suggests doubts about our ability to reach a destination.
Fears of landing reflect uncertainty about the future; we don’t know “where we will land.” Dreams of soaring unfettered above the Earth reflect feelings of empowerment. We are confident in our ability to reach any destination, and feel on top of the world.
If you dream you are flying so high that you can actually touch the moon and stars this portends many different types of global disaster that you may soon hear of. If you fly high with black wings you are warned that you are headed for a let down of magnitude.
Flying dreams are normally a good omen and if the flight is pleasant, with no worries and anxieties, you can look for happiness and plenty to follow.
