From time to time I fly in sleeps. I do it easily and in/by different ways. Is it normal condition of mind? Or it says about some abnormality? ( :crazy: ) And what parts of brain are active during such flights? :unknw:

Its common.

According to the Gemara, dreams don't mean anything. They're just what you're thinking throughout the day.

Once, in a mid-day nap, I sort of floated and hovered over my own body. That was neat. Never happened again, though.

there is a spiritual discipline which revolves around trying to gain presence of mind during dreams. forget what it's called but it's out there. The film, Waking Life, explores some of the ideas, and I think Carlos Castaneda wrote about that type of thing. And of course many Jewish mystics talk about "alias neshama," and the "mesivta shel ma'alah."

I sleep on flights.

I can always fly in my dreams. It is rather odd. In some dreams I don't know I can fly and "discover" it in different ways or I vaguely know its a dream etc. It's very strange. Yet I have also have dreamed of things BEFORE they happen. I have also done tests and discovered information in dreams that I didn't know previously. Of course when I was younger I had seen the future while awake as well.

I would have to go deeply into expalining the occult concept of the interconnection of all things and pantheism, but essentially if you are able to quiet all your other senses this is when you are most likely to gain psychic input. During sleep most of your brain is no longer "thinking", what you get is a combination of your thoughts and actually external information.

Like let's imagine there is a siren outside. You hear it and suddenly you dream of a siren. This is how a dream incorporates real sensations from outside. Yet it also does this with psychic information.

I am fascinated with dreams. I visit the same places over and over (places I have never been to). I see things in my dreams I have never seen in real life and I seem to have super natural powers (and others don't).

It really seems illogical why I would fly in dreams and not in real life.

The entire brain lights up like a Christmas tree during REM sleep which is when most dreaming occurs. Likewise some mental functions (such as memory) seem to occur in the entire brain rather than be regional specific.

One interesting thing though is that I once tried to fly as high as I could in a dream. Would I go out into outer space? Instead I became "stuck" at a certain altitude. It's about the same level planes fly because they flew by me a few times (almost can't see them it's like a flash zooming past because they go so fast).

after that it seems dangerous to go too high or else impossible to come back down.

I have also had dreams of falling from the sky. Makes me wonder about all the stories of angels etc.

From what I understand there are common themes in dreams which most people have. It also gives food for thought to Carl Jung's collective archetype theories.

I never think about my big wings throughout the day. And I am not an ornitologist. :unknw:

Once, in a mid-day nap, I sort of floated and hovered over my own body. That was neat. Never happened again, though.


I did that few times. But I never saw my body in those cases. I only felt that I go out from it.

there is a spiritual discipline which revolves around trying to gain presence of mind during dreams.


Sometimes I have thought that someone wants my mind and feelings worked during my dreams.

Your post is very close to my feelings.

I have also done tests and discovered information in dreams that I didn't know previously.


Much times.

Yes, yes, yes. I call this 'dreams from out'.

I am fascinated with dreams. I visit the same places over and over (places I have never been to). I see things in my dreams I have never seen in real life and I seem to have super natural powers (and others don't).


Usually it is telekinesis.

One interesting thing though is that I once tried to fly as high as I could in a dream. Would I go out into outer space?


I was few times.

I have also had dreams of falling from the sky.


I stopped my falling myself.

From what I understand there are common themes in dreams which most people have.


I am agreed with you.

I've also tried sleeping on flies but the buzzing keeps me awake.

I did nothing for it myself. But few times in my dreams I was trained for telekinesis. I don't know whether it works in reality. I didn't try to repeat it after awakening. Although one time in reality I felt that eyes can radiate some power. It was connected with feeling of sudden recognition. And my eyes were focused at this moment.
