I recently talked with a young woman who had dreamed of giving birth. She wondered what the dream interpretation for giving birth might be. By the way, she is not pregnant, therefore, the dream is not her psyche going through a dry run of the birth. Here is an excerpt from one interpretation I found online. Since I have had similar dreams over the years, after a day when I was excited about a new creative project, I am not surprised to see the following dream interpretation under “Birth:”
To dream of giving birth or see someone else giving birth, suggests that you are giving birth to a new idea or project. It also represents a new attitude, fresh beginnings or a major event. Alternatively, the dream may be calling attention to your inner child and the potential for you to grow. A more direct interpretation of this dream, may represent your desires/ anxieties of giving birth or the anticipation for such an event to occur.
Have you ever woken up from a dream and found yourself sobbing as if your heart were breaking? I recently received an email from a person who had recently had the experience. A quick online search for “waking up crying from a dream” brought up the following information from Dream Moods:
To wake up crying, represents some suppressed hurt or previous trauma that is coming up to the surface. You can no longer suppress these emotions. They need to be dealt with head on.
Another one of my favorite books on dream interpretation is Dreams Your Magic Mirror: With Interpretations of Edgar Cayce by Elsie Sechrist. I love this book.
However, it can sometimes be frustrating finding the information I’m looking for since many of the dream symbols and their dream interpretations are scattered throughout the book. Fortunately, the book has a very good index.
Ms. Sechrist bases her dream interpretations on Edgar Cayce’s psychic readings. Here are the various dream interpretations for flying in a dream:
When I looked back on my flying dream, I realized that the day before I had had a challenging emotional encounter with a loved one. Therefore, I could see how I could have been wanting to rise above a problem.

Although lately I have been referring to online sources for dream interpretations of flying dreams, this doesn’t mean that I don’t have treasured dream interpretation books. For example, one of my favorites is The Complete Dream Book by Gillian Holloway. As a matter of fact, I had the good fortune of interviewing Gillian during my dream teleseminar series a number of years ago. She was great.
According to Gillian, people in performance professions have flying dreams frequently. By performance professions I would imagine she means actors, spiritual leaders, tour guides, stand-up comics, and speakers. I must say that, from my experience as a speaker, there are times when the rapport I feel with the audience feels as if I am soaring.

Here’s an interesting dream interpretation for a flying dream. Although Dream Revealer does say that usually dreams of flying are normally a “good omen,” however:
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.
Can you imagine dreaming of flying to the moon. That’s pretty scary, isn’t it?Continue reading
Mystical Blaze, as do other websites on dream interpretation, aligns flying dreams with lucid dreams saying that flying dreams are often precursors to lucid dreams. Here’s an excerpt from Mystical Blaze explaining the concept:
We feel on top of the world and are soaring to great heights in our minds when we fly. Flying dreams are very often a precursor for lucid dreaming, a dream state in which we are aware we are dreaming and can manipulate the outcome of the dream. Even in a dream state, most of us are aware that we can’t fly in normal life, thus on some level a flying dream likely coincides with dreaming lucidly for the vast majority of the population, though most awaken unaware of the fact that they were engaged in a lucid dream.
Dreams of Flying
After researching a number of sources for interpretations of flying dreams, I was ready to conclude that flying dreams, especially when the dreamer feels happy and confident reflect satisfaction with the dreamer’s life.
Not so, according to Experience Project. This website lists a number of types of flying dreams, all of them foretelling problems, for example:
Flying over muddy water means enemies are watching you so keep your life details private

Real Meaning of Dreams lists three possible meanings for flying in your dreams, based on your feelings during the dream:
If it is a joyful experience you are probably feeling confident in being able to get where you want to go, that you have the skills necessary to achieve your dreams.
If in your dreams you are flying away from something or someone you may be shirking responsibility.
If you are trying to get off the ground and can’t or if you can get off the ground but maintaining your flying takes a lot of hard work…this may mean you feel your freedom is limited by something. And it can mean you feel you have difficulty controlling what happens in your life.
Real Meaning of Dreams
Psychic medium Craig Hamilton-Parker adds a new dimension to the dream interpretation of flying dreams. He suggests that to interpret your flying dream, ask yourself:
What is it I am being released from? Think about the things that have been troubling you of late. Perhaps the difficulty or emotional problem that has grounded you for so long is not as bad as you thought. Sometimes it is important to tread the paths of life lightly. Let the freedom, gentleness and carefree feeling of the dream be expressed in your behaviour.
Do I feel anxiety or fear? You may thrill at the feeling of risk that your dream gives you. If so, you may want to take more risks in your life with, for example, your work or a relationship. If you feel trepidation and alarm you may be over-reaching yourself and need to get a firmer footing in your life. Your dreams and ambitions may be too grandiose and not in accord with what you can realistically expect to achieve.
