      Experiencing the take-off and landing parts of air travel, repeatedly

      Hi there, I made this account specifically to seek some help interpreting a recurring dream I've had for years, in a few different forms. I hope I'm not too presumptuous popping in with this as a first message.

      For some background I'm a 30 year old woman, with a husband and one adopted child, living in western Canada.

      Here we go:

      My most recent iteration of this dream occurred last night. I started thinking about the plot as well as the feelings the dream evoked and realized I've been having versions of it for almost a decade. The one last night was very simple, but also felt, as corny as it sounds, full of meaning.

      The dream starts as I find myself seated on a passenger jet, already buckled in. The person seated next to me is a female friend whose face I never actually see, although she only seems to be relevant in one small part of the dream. As the dream starts the plane is reaching the fastest point of taxi-ing, and in my dream I very clearly feel the "roller-coaster stomach" feeling as the bottom falls out the world and the plane lifts off. In reality, I don't fly often but I've never had a fear of flying. In my dream, however, as I sit in my seat all I can think about is how planes typically crash in take off or landing. In my dream I am thinking "I can't escape now, if I am going to die, it's going to be in the next 10 minutes, and I will have no control over my odds of survival nor will I have any way of predicting whether this day will be like any other or my last." In my dream, I sit quietly and do my best to find a way to be okay with being trapped in a flying metal box with my own mortality. I have the intense urge to scream and flee, but I know I can't, and the dream is largely just about that sensation: I could die at any second and never know it was going to happen until it's too late, I can't make it stop, it's too late to run, I'm trapped, I just have to sit here and take it and hope for the best. I also feel like I can't express my fear to my seatmate, because I don't want to scare my friend. I wonder if she feels the same way, but I don't speak to her.

      I never dream about the cruising altitude portion of the flight, because in my dream that isn't something to be afraid of (even though fear of flying doesn't work this way at all). It feels like when you've zoned out staring at something for a few seconds, then snap back not sure of how much time has passed. The dream picks up again during landing, where again I can distinctly feel the roller-coaster feeling in my stomach, and I am essentially white-knuckled and counting the seconds until I can be sure I'm not going to die, as the plane lands. The same sensation of "I should have run when I had the chance, I'm trapped and there's nothing I can do to stop death from coming if it chooses" is there, possibly more intense than the first time. I have the distinct thought of "if something terrible is going to happen, now's the time".

      The dream ends right before the plane touches down.

      Another version of this dream I used to have had a slight variation where it was a small prop plane, and it landed, nonsensically, using a long wooden pier/boardwalk, constructed in a T-shape in the middle of a swamp. The fear/mortality/uncertainty sensations/thoughts were always exactly the same, though. Sometimes this dream would end with me swimming through the swamp back to land, which was always cool and refreshing and weirdly enjoyable. The swamp/prop plane version was less crushing dread and more anticipation/exhilaration in some ways. The passenger jet version is a much more unpleasant dream. It also seems to have gotten progressively "darker" as I've gotten older.

      Well, there you have it. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts!

      Hello,
      I too live in Vancouver. I too used to have recurring dreams over and over. Now...they've been gone for many years. So what did I do? I learned to listen to myself.

      What I've learnt on my own journey is that dreams are full of information for ourselves if only we are to look for it and that there is nothing in a dream by chance. Therefore, if you answer the following questions, to the best of your recall ability, I will happily give you an interpretation of your dream as if it was mine.

      First tell me the number of scenes in your dream. THEN FOR EACH SCENE I want you to tell me the following:

      Location:
      I want you to look in your mind, as the observer, in the following directions and tell me what you see:
      1. To your left.
      2. To your right.
      3. In front of you.
      4. Behind you.
      5. Above you.
      6. Below you.

      It’s all right if you can’t recall much. Simply tell me what you see and make sure I know what direction it is from you the dreamer. In my interpretation, you’ll see how this is a symbol itself.

      When you are describing what you see, tell me in as much detail as you can recall about it. So things I am very interested in is what are walls, doors, windows, stairs, tables, etc. made of, age/style, colour, etc. The same goes for anything outside. You’ll see in my interpretations how all of this tells us lots about ourselves.

      Lighting:
      1. Tell me what the lighting was like, i.e. bright, dull, black, cloudy etc.
      2. Then tell me where the light was coming from.
      3. Can you tell the time of day or season?
      Lighting is important in a dream because it’s a symbol of vibrational state. I’ll explain this during my interpretation for you.

      Objects:
      If there are any objects in a dream scene, then tell me about them as follows:
      1. Shape, size, colour and what they were made of.
      2. Where the object is in the dream relative to you, i.e. left, right, etc.

      I’ve found objects in dreams are usually symbols of things we first need to concentrate on spiritually. I’ll explain this in the interpretation if you had any objects in any of the scenes.

      People:
      For each person in a dream scene I want you to do the following:
      1. Describe them to me in as much detail as you can recall. This includes age, gender, clothes, colour of the clothes, what the clothes were made of.
      2. Tell me where they were in the dream scene relative to you, i.e. left, right, below, etc.
      3. Tell me if they were lying down, sitting, standing, walking, etc.
      4. Tell me what they did with you. Don’t skip the details. Simply tell me exactly what happened.
      5. If there are any conversations or thoughts between you and the person or others, then tell me EXACTLY WHAT WAS SAID. This is important.
      6. If there were others you couldn’t see but felt, then let me know where you felt they were in a scene relative to you the dreamer, i.e. left, right, etc.

      Animals. Etc.:
      If there were any animals, insects, birds, reptiles, fish or whatever in any of the scenes, then tell me. Describe them in as great as detail as you can recall. Also let me know where they were in the dream scene relative to you, i.e. left, right, etc. Then let me know of any thoughts that passed between you and them.

      Thoughts/Feelings:
      This is a very important part of every dream scene. Take your time, go back and tell me the following for each scene:
      1. What was your first thought/feeling as the dream scene began.
      2. Tell me of any thoughts/feeling changes as the dream scene progressed and let me know where in the scene this occurred.
      3. Tell me your last thought/feeling as the dream ended.

      I realize this is a lot of work. HOWEVER, I think you might be surprised by how much you can learn about yourself from a single scene.

      If you make the extra effort and do the same above for your second dream you've referenced, I will happily provide you with an interpretation as if it was my dream.

      With kind regards,
      Guy
