Exploring Flying in Dream Meanings


Have you ever had a dream in which you are flying? If you have, I’m willing to bet you remember it vividly.  These dreams are so exhilarating! There is a sense of ultimate freedom that is hair-raising. Upon waking we almost weep at having to set our feet back on the ground.

That’s a key point, because flying dream meanings deals with freedom.  Specifically, freedom to be creative and self-expressive.

I was talking to a friend of mine last night who told me she’s had flying dreams since her youth. However, recently instead of flying solo, she finds herself in an airplane or helicopter.  I was inspired by her curiosity about these flying dream meanings. I figured if she was interested in these dreams, then many of you might be too. So, I thought I’d share some thoughts about these phenomenal dreams.

Symbolic Suggestions about Flying Dream Meanings

 

Bring on the Birdseye View:  
When we dream of flying, it is often our subconscious desire to get above and beyond our circumstances. Moreover, many people who have a lot of flying dreams have a need to see the bigger, broader view of situations. Whether you have a knack for seeing the big picture, or have a need to get more objectivity – a flying dream is your cue to expand your view of your surroundings.

Elton John Nailed It: 
You know that song “Rocket Man”? It describes a guy talking about launching off into space. For him, it’s just a job 5 days a week. He misses his home, he misses his wife. He feels burned out and all alone. I think this is why many of us conjure up flying dreams. Very often we get hung up in our jobs, or we feel stuck in our situations. Flying dream meanings indicate our deep desire to launch out of these ruts in life.  Sometimes these dreams indicate a need to take flight and rocket into a different way of living our lives.

Are You Mental?!:
No, of course you’re not mental if you have a flying dream! But it’s important to note the realm of air is a mental element. Air is symbolic of the mind. Air deals with thoughts, intellect and dreams.  That’s noteworthy because a flying dream might be a prompt to pay attention to our thoughts. Are we avoiding certain thoughts? If so, our flying dream might mean we are trying to escape stressful/negative thinking. The realm of air is also about communicating thoughts. So, a flying dream might ask us to investigate how we are expressing ourselves, our thoughts and our ideas to others.

Tools Rule!:
This pointer deals with our dreams when we are flying in vessels like planes or helicopters, etc.  My friend recently started having flying dreams exclusively in some kind of flying device. I suspect this is happening because she’s got a lot of regulations she’s dealing with in real-life. Flying in vessels in dreams indicates a need for safety, protection or rules.  It may also imply a loss of self-confidence, or being timid when it comes to feeling big freedom.  It may also indicate a need for extra navigation in life situations. I’m not suggesting we pull the parachute cord in these dreams. No, I think these vessel-controlled flying dreams are important to interpret. They represent a level of control required in our lives. That’s great, however, great freedom often means taking great risk.

In closing, I hope you enjoyed this post on flying dream meanings.  And many thanks to my friend for inspiring me to write it for you!

As always, I’ve got to give you kudos for interpreting your own dreams according to your own life situations. I’m glad you know these are just my observations after interpreting dreams for many years – but that doesn’t mean these pointers are the end-all-be all.  You be you!

Horse of a Different Color – Horse Color Meanings

Symbolism of Horse Color Meanings





On their own merit, horses (and all animals) represent extraordinary symbolic meaning. When we add color meanings to animal meanings, it opens a whole new world of insight. I thought it would be neat to discuss horse color meanings and their influence on our psyche.

Horse color meanings give us a deeper connection to this animal. That’s saying a lot, because by itself, the horse is jam-packed with symbolic meaning.

For example, horses represent incredible attributes like: Nobility, Grace, Friendship and Freedom.

When we combine these regal horse qualities with color meanings, our understanding explodes with a rich sense of awareness and appreciation for this creature.  So let’s start exploring this bright world of horse color meanings!

Horse Color Meanings

Black: Some may argue that black isn’t really a color. But in truth, black is required to give depth and hue to all colors. Every artist is aware of the necessity of black in order to conjure intensity in a color.

The same is true with black horses. This horse is a symbol of profound expression. Part of that expression deals with magic and mystery. Consider…darkness is the absence of light. This is symbolic of hidden, secret energy. The dark horse is an icon for deep complexity and intrigue.

When we encounter the black horse, it is a signal to tap into the unknown, tap into our hidden selves – and do this with the purpose of producing great works. The horse is a totem of accomplishment and industry. The black horse symbolizes our ability to dig deep into the mystery of our lives to create something stunning.

White: It’s fitting to place the white horse after the black. White is a perfect polarity to black. Unlike black, there is no hiding with the color meanings of white. Same goes with white horses. These horses are symbolic of honesty, truth and innocence.

The white horse is an icon for self expression, and sharing our creativity with the world. This colored totem assists us in exposing our talents to the public with the purpose of motivating and inspiring others.

When we encounter the white horse, it is a signal to step into the light and tell the truth about our potential.  This totem is a reminder that we can be free to be who we are, there is nothing to hide. Allow the energy of the white horse to inspire you into giving your gifts to the world.

Red/Brown:  In the realm of color meanings, this is the shade that points to that which roots us. These colors reminiscent of the earth, so it speaks to what grounds us.

Just as ginger-haired humans have a reputation for being fiery, same goes with ginger horses. The red/brown horse is a symbol of passion. Specifically, this magnificently colored creature asks us to focus our passion for productivity. What lights your fire? What is at the root of your passion? Calling upon the ginger horse can help discover answers to these questions.

This colored horse fuels our healthy desires, and channel our energy to accomplish our most sought-after goals. As a totem, this colorful horse motivates us to run free with our utmost ambitions. This horse will also help us tap into the core essence of what we want in our lives.

Dappled/Multi-Colored Horses: As we might expect, horse meanings are more diverse with the multi-colored among the breed. A combination of colors on a horse suggests variety and flexibility in personality.

When we encounter multi-colored horses in our consciousness, it’s a signal to break out of self-imposed harnesses. It’s time to crush stereotypes and smash habits that prohibit our greatest success.

Multi-colored horse meanings inspire diversification. This horse encourages hammering the heck out of routine and riding free into wild new vistas of creativity.

Symbolic Meditation


Meditation is Symbolic Too
Meditation is Symbolic Too

Meditation is symbolic too. I’m not just talking about the journeys and impressions received during meta states. I’m talking about the act of meditation as a symbolic event.

Why?

Because meditation is an engagement with the aspects of ourselves that dance with powerful intagibles of higher experience.

The act of meditating is a signal to our expansive selves that says: “Oy! It’s ok to play now! Let’s party in the dreamtime! Let’s fly! Let’s create! Let’s experience everything without restriction!”

As a practice, meditation is symbolic of:

  • Commitment
  • Devotion
  • Awareness
  • Connection
  • Liberation
  • Focus
  • Freedom
  • Unconventionalism

Do you meditate?  What does the act of meditation symbolize for you?
