Intro
 

DREAM


Hi Aneta,

I once had a dream that I was sitting on a huge kite and flying in the sky. I was enjoying it until I turned around and saw many electrical wires for connectivity. I wanted to stop so I wouldn’t crash into them, but I couldn’t. I kept dodging the wires, but in the end, I lost balance and crash-landed.

I died in the end. I woke with a sinking feeling in my heart, and I couldn’t breathe. It felt like I’d really had that fall!

INTERPRETATION


Hello Drashti,

Thank you for sharing your dream.

Flying in a dream symbolizes freedom. The sky symbolizes Superconscious Mind, the highest level of consciousness. The electrical wires represent some sort of connections that you wanted to avoid crashing into. Crashing and dying in a dream symbolizes change, a significant transformation.

The dream highlights the idea that you were experiencing a lot of freedom while connecting with the highest level of your consciousness. This freedom was achieved in an unexpected or unorthodox way (kite). There were some connections that you wanted to avoid while in that state, yet these connections eventually caused you to transform (fall/death).

The sensation of falling that you describe likely had to do with your astral body re-entering and reconnecting with your physical body. This sensation is pretty common towards the end or the beginning of a dream cycle.

APPLICATION

If this were my dream, Drashti, I’d examine the 24 to 48 hours prior to having this dream. If that weren’t possible, then I’d try to recall major events in my life that took place around the time of the dream. 

The dream speaks to you experiencing an incredible sense of freedom and inner-connectedness. It concludes with you undergoing a major transformation. Whatever waking life circumstances influenced your dream were paramount and very significant. It’s not every day that we have profound experiences leading us to heights of freedom and culminating in transformation.

I’d encourage you to explore activities and experiences that bring you freedom in life. What are they? This is what the dream is calling your soul to ponder and pursue.

May your dreams illuminate the inner and outer you…
