Right! But for some reason, ducking under them isn't really an option, you have to go over them. And as a result you find yourself getting higher and
higher which is naturally more perilous. It's like gaining altitude is far easier than declining.
FEAR LINES. I concur. I will admit that I tend to have this variation of the dream when I am having real-life difficulties. The concept of "avoiding
ones problems" lingers when I wake up from them.
I had a flying dream just last night. It's funny, because I have been reading and thinking a lot about this subject. In last night's, I was running
from some kind of antagonist (I can't remember exactly, just that something bad was chasing me), and I sort of 'half-realized' that I was dreaming.
So I attempted to fly away. It worked, but only just barely. I found it very difficult to take off, and even moreso to control.
Since I've been on this kick, it's been my goal to try to fly any time I realize I'm dreaming. The weirdest thing is that you'd think it would be
black and white - "Ah, I must be dreaming! Now I have all of my wits about me, just like when I'm awake!" ...Only it's not like that. It's like
dreaming that you realize you're dreaming. Not a truly lucid dream, where you become master of that realm.
I also have a recurring theme that I'm floating indoors. In those dreams I have very little or no control, it's like I'm being led. Usually down a
dark hallway, into a room that someone is sleeping in. I don't want to go in there, and I'm afraid they'll wake up and see me floating in their
I'll say a bit more. After my dad passed away in 2003, I had a dream like that. I was in my parent's house and it was exactly as it would be at the
hour of night it actually was. I was floating slowly down the hallway and saw my father, who held out his arms and we embraced.
I'm not a religious person, and my spirituality is - undeveloped - to say the least. I've never encountered anything 'paranormal' or seen a UFO,
but I woke up from this one rather shaken, but with a feeling of love and understanding that is difficult to explain. I know it was 'just a dream'
but it felt very different from any other I've had.
