What Do Levitation Dreams Mean?

Levitation dreams are a positive sign. They can indicate that you are in touch with your spiritual side and have achieved balance in your life.

It is important to look at the area and situation where you find yourself levitating in the dream. If you are surprised by your levitating powers, it may indicate that you haven’t discovered your true potential. If you dream that you are levitating something in the air, it may be a sign that you feel in control over a situation.

Another interpretation of the levitation dreams is that your spirit is a sign that you need to lift yourself out of the current situation in order to think clearly. Perhaps your mind is bogged down by the day to day turmoil, and you have lost sight of the bigger picture in life.

  1. My levitation dream was I was standing in a field of green flowing grass, in the early morning with the sun coming up. I had a off white dress with small flowers on it , just below my knees. I felt a vibration from the Earth as if she were trying to tell me something. I put my hands to my side, palms facing forward. I felt an energy through them and I levitated. I was surprised and happy. I motored around my property until my husband said ” not so high”. We lived among people who grew marijuana and he did not want them to shoot me thinking I was the law. I came down and smiled… I finally did it.

  2. The other night i had a dream that there was someone in my house, & my bf told me that our daughter was up playing and i told him noo she’s been asleep. and he was like oh okay, well in my dream i look over to my room and i see her and her doll levitating into the air , and then my son was starting to do the same. and i said in the name of jesus christ i rebuke any evil in this house and both my kids fell to the beds and all i kept saying was in the name of jesus christ i rebuke any evil in the house but it was soooo garbled and hard for me to say. why is this happening what does it mean

  3. I had a Levitation dream where I was in my house and as soon as I left my house all of a sudden I was in the air and it felt so real and everything about it just felt real and the fact is is it wasn’t real it was in a dream and then all of a sudden When my feet touched the ground I woke up very quickly and I still remember it to this date and I had that dream over 12 years ago

    • I truly regret to say this but it is your actual boyfriend who is bringing the evil into the home. I’m sorry to be the bearer. Do you feel this, also?

  4. I had a dream my son said,” look mom, I can levitate” he started to lift himself up into the air. I don’t know but I feel like it has something to do with my court case on Wednesday.

  5. Had a dream during my nap that I was levitating in Lotus position down the sidewalk of my neighborhood and all of the children were chasing me, and even got on their dirtbike to try to ask me how am I doing this? What is the interpretation of this dream?

    • I use to have more flying dreams, but last night I remember levitating from the criss cross applesauce/lotus position. There were a few people encircling me, observing and encouraging me. I went up about 6 inches, and hovered a bit. Remember thinking, I can do this! Just remembered while watching Ancient Aliens, lol.

    • I was sleeping the night, and I remember the dream exactly what I did and how much people I saw, I don’t remember the people like who they are. I was in my house from my parents room the dream started, I jumped and flew in the air for a bit and went back down I was extremely surprised happy scared and not believing what happened. And then I just went down the corridor and there was 3 people going around with me they where wearing clothes that a band would wear on stage and pushing a cart around, the cart didnt have anything and as soon as I reached the door of the house I woke up

  6. Juliet clarke on

    I dream that I was walking with two girls to protect them but then I realize the road was getting lonely and when I follow them I would have to go back by myself so I told them that I will be turning back because it two of them and I will have to go back by myself. So I turn back ad I did that I started to sing a gospel song then its like I was walking but not touching the ground like someone was pushing me so I continue to sing but when I look back. I saw two men I one was trying to hurt me and the other was there to protect me

  7. I woke up very scared, with my heart stopped by fear due to a dream….I was climbing the stairs up to the last floor of my old block …it was very dark and I was climbing with the believe that a man is there doing something wrong. When I got to the last floor a light was on and I saw a little girl floating with her back at me, I only remember her pony tail…and thinking she was strangled but there was no rope there …. I woke up in fear and still wondering what was that

  8. I woke this morning from a powerful experiential dream of levitation and moving through space, the speed increasing as time in the experience passed. It was in a group of people in an unknown multi roomed older house/building where we had gathered for a several day spiritual teaching event. The purpose at this time was to levitate and I was not getting it at first and was starting to give up when it happened intensely. I levitated from my cross legged position rapidly up and started moving through the room and as time passed moving faster and faster through all the rooms so essentially I was flying but never leaving the inside of the building. I stayed in a mostly vertical position. Aware of everyone and everything around me. I also appeared mostly “stuck” in the physicality of the experience as it was happening knowing I was supposed to transcend to a different space, let go of the physical awareness of that around me but I couldn’t get there until I felt it start happening at the very end. Almost a trapped feeling of not being able to shift into the reason for the levitation and movement that had been assigned. I think someone gave me a prompt and I started to chant. The group was wanting me to slow down and I couldn’t. And I also did not want to stop.. I finally was able to direct myself to slow down and to assist that I powerfully chanted in Gurmukh/Sanskrit/Hindi a well known prayer from the depths of my being. I then finally came to a resting place and was strangely ignored, expecting us to share our experiences and some explanations and not receiving this from the group or the teachers. I stayed in the area walking around trying to connect with the others that were gathered and bonding as they got to know each other and remained alone as I wandered the area While still in the experience I tried to find a reason for this response from the others and could not come up with anything that made sense. So some of the initial residual feelings of the experience have elements of disappointment and confusion as I come out of it. I would like to know if any positive interpretations can be seen from it

    • My best friend and partner died over 8 years ago, I dreamt last night about her but it wasnt a nice dream and she was not nice to me, in the dream. In the dream, we were facing each other, nothing was said but I outstretched my arms and started lifting off the ground, probably about 6ft, I remember knowing what was happening, whilst I was floating in the air, I didnt feel scared, it just happened and we just carried on looking at each other and then, the dream ended. It felt so real, as if it was really happening. Jan

  9. Hi there, last night I dreamed that I entered a room, there were people around the edge of the room whom I didn’t know. On entering the room I felt a force like a boom sensation and butterflies in my stomach. I levitated or was pushed towards the ceiling by the invisible force. I was scared and shouted “make it stop” I made my self wake up and was scared to go back to sleep.
    What does that mean? Any ideas?

  10. In my own levitating dreams,I always used my two hands for propulsion while standing in one point and moving vertically.

    • Morgan this is exactly the type of dream I have on a recurring basis! Basically I extend both palms downward at my sides and some unknown force helps me propel up vertically. I can feel it pushing up against my palms. In the dream I always feel like a beginner who is just learning how to do this process…sometimes I am able to stretch myself horizontally for a few moments and cruise around the room, but it feels shakier. Normally I can just propel upwards a few feet vertically then softly come back down and I do it repeatedly in the dream. The setting is normally my own house and family members are often there, who are typically unimpressed and just seem to think of it as normal.

      Last night the dream was far more detailed and I remember asking them to record it on their phones so that people would believe me. I also distinctly remember telling them that this “force” (or whatever it is ) was around them too and they could use it just like I was using it. This time I looked at my palms when I was done “flying” or “lifting”, and there were purple and blue square gems embedded in my palms, which quickly crumbled and fell out of my hand in a sparkling powder because I was done flying. This is the first time that has happened in one of these dreams – normally it’s just me “practicing” propelling up and down.

      • Woah! I’ve had experienced the same thing. In my dreams when I levitate, I just put my hands down my sides of my body to rise up in the air. I can usually sort of fly and be propelled high up in the air. The first time this happened afterwards I thought I was maybe ascending, but then I quickly shook the thought. Every time I levitate when I wake up my body is sore. Probably because my body is moving too much. The last time I did, I stopped myself from doing this because it physically hurts my body and I’m sore for days.
