I searched and found lots of posts on flying/floating dreams, but I was wondering specifically if anyone else has noticed a significant increase in
their nightly dreams that contain incidents of flying or floating - propulsion without an obvious "physical" cause within the dream?
I ask because when I was a little kid (elementary school age) I had a lot of flying dreams, (always requiring lots of effort to get off the ground)
but they decreased to practically zero in my late teens through the very recent present. I will turn 43 next Monday.
For many years now, I may have had one floating or flying dream in a 2-5 year period. In the past two weeks I have suddenly had three such dreams
that I woke up and remembered. It's awesome, I missed them and welcome them back with open arms, but it seems like I should at least wonder why they
are back after the long absence.
-In the first dream, I was on some kind of space station and was able to propel myself to the other end. It was short lived, and I don't normally
dream anything about space, so it stood out, not just for the flying/ floating, but also like huh? i don't usually dream in the sci-fi stuff.
-In the second dream, I had a new personal device that was like a seat-back, very light weight, with a fabric area which supported the person and also
let one steer, by pulling the fabric right, left, up, and down, either with one hand holding the fabric seat or both hands, depending whether you held
the fabric on the outsides of the legs at the knee level, or the inside, more like a hammock where the back of the device was the "plastic" seat-back
and the other end (which one steers with) was held and directed by ones-self. It was very cool, and in my dream, I was flying around my local park
with at least the accuracy of a model airplane, but self-directed. In this dream, I woke up and recalled that it was "so fun"!
-In the third dream (last night), I was in a totally unrelated storyline, and all I can remember was that I was not only able to propel myself in some
direction, but I actually went through a physical barrier, in this case it was a glass window in the door. I felt the preparation and the force, but
no physical trauma (lacerations, etc) and the door was not damaged. In my dream, I recall thinking something along the lines of, "it is good that I
could not do that from day one, because it takes a while to learn how it all works."
If anybody looks at my posts, you will see that a lot of my interest is regarding dreams. I think a lot of information and experiences happen during
dreams. I am curious if anybody else has experienced a noticable increase in your flying/floating dreams, especially if that has not been common in
your recent years' dreaming patterns.
