    I constantly have dreams that I'm flying, and I can control where I go. What does it mean?

    It means you are having a dream where you can fly. This is common and completely normal thing to dream about. I've had tons and tons of flying dreams, some where I can control the flight but others where I cannot. Interpret it however you want. There is no actual correct way to interpret a dream as dreams are our brains way of processing all the physical and emotional stimuli, both subconscious and conscious, that we experience on an everyday basis.

      It is common only in children. When we fly in our dreams as an adult, it is usually an overture to astral travel..in children it usually leads to an OBE also, but we forget how as we age, which makes it special in adulthood

    I have not any idea what it means. It appears it is a lucid dream. That means you are consciously aware of the subconscious. I would ponder the destinations or observances of flight rather than having or seeming to have the ability of flight. Answers may be of avail for questions you have of this or that.

    Interestingly enough I have experienced similar dreams. The oddity of some of those dreams is I try to land and never can. Some I begin with falling and then fly before hitting bottom. Yet, even in those instances I cannot land. But, I have over the years learned - I guess I learned, to observe the scenery and feel the sensation of flying. As said, at times it begins with a sensation of falling and the contrast of that with flying is both amazing and nice!

      A lucid dream is when you are aware IN your dream that you are dreaming. With practice you can control your dreams when you are in a lucid one.

    It means you are sleeper cell for terrorism and you should turn yourself in today!
    Or it might not.

    I have had the feeling of falling most of the time but not flying so much. I think it attributes to how comfortably you are sleeping. Sometimes when I am sleeping I will scare myself awake and find my leg is nearly touching the floor and the dream I had has something to do with my legs falling or something like that. But hey that's just me.

    It is you becoming aware of an Out of Body experience.  When the spirit is without the heavy physical body, it is able to drift and the feeling is wonderful. Practice leaving your body and try to control where you go.
    Here are two exercises

    1. Lift Out Of Your Body Exercise
    Lie down undisturbed on your bed or a place where you are comfortable
    Think of your Astral body as a body of light living inside and connected to your body yet separate.
    Relax every muscle in your body
    Now try to forget about the heavy physical body and see yourself as the Astral body
    See yourself in your Astral body rising up, First by raising your Astral body’s head..now the shoulders, the back etc. until you are completely standing
    Feel yourself pick up your Astral body in the same manner you would your physical body
    Do this several times before going off to sleep

    2. Climbing Out Of Your Body
    Taking the same undisturbed position on your bed and having relaxed all the muscles in your body..See your crown center open
    Imagine your Astral body reaching out of your crown center and grabbing onto a rope that is hanging next to you. Slowly pull your self up and out of your body. Try about 3 times before drifting off to sleep

    Practice, Practice

      Your crown center is the top of the head

      It took me a year. When I gave up, it happened. Like when you try to think of a name and can't, you give up and suddenly you remember the name

    I don't know what it means for you. You have to "know" the answer for your own case.

    But I have had similar dreams from about age 2 or 3 and they were recurring dreams. For me, they meant that I knew what Faith (100%, perfect confidence) felt like. They were a guidepost for what I needed to develop in my life. They were a gift and I have taken that gift and used it well.

    Flying within a dream could mean that you know - somewhere deep inside of yourself - that you are capable of rising above situations and are in control of them even though you feel powerless in your waking world.
    I had flying dreams as a teenager and as an adult. In most of them, I was trying to get away from a monster or a person that was trying to kill me. Once it was bees from which I was trying to escape. Another was that I was flying away from Freddy (yes, "Nightmare on Elm Street"). I knew that if I did not wake up, he would catch me and I would die in real life. Terrifying.
    Funny thing - I would flap my arms as though they were wings so could get off the ground.
    The last dream I had in which I could fly was also the first time I felt free. I soared through the night sky. I could feel the cool breeze, see the stars, and look down upon homes and fields. I finally landed on top of the peak of a barn and as I sat there, I "knew" that it would be the last time I flew. I was praying to God and complaining to Him that it wasn't fair that the one time I enjoyed the flight was the last time I could do it. This was a few years ago and I have not dreamed of flying since then.
    If you are still flying and enjoying it, you may want to stop questioning it and just enjoy the ride smile.
