Dream 329: Floating High
A 50 something man described having a dream that he always remembered even years later. When he was an elementary school boy, he dreamed repeatedly that he was floating above trees. From the sky,he viewed his friend and himself walking through the neighborhood on the sidewalk. He felt like he was actually floating in reality.
Dreaming that you’re floating is not as powerful as flying, but it is significant. The fact that it was a recurrent dream, a dream that occurs repeatedly, emphasizes that it was an important or “big” dream. Floating usually means that the dreamer felt content with the situation, that he was literally “floating on air” at that time.
Trees are a primary symbol of integration which means the dreamer felt pretty together personally back then. Having a friend in a dream is many times a dreams way of doubling the dreamer. The dream was doubling down on the importance of his feelings in the dream.
Alternative explanations of the dream involve it being a lucid dream or an out-of-body experience. These explanations are very speculative; however, it would explain the huge impact these dreams had on him. Decades later, he could remember this dream like it happened yesterday.
