Dreams of Flying or Sleep Paralysis | surrealist imagery
Dreams of Flying or Sleep ParalysisThe moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it. Most of our dreams are well-forgotten by the time we are completely awake with an exception of, perhaps, dreams of flying. Flying dreams have always been provoking a certain amount of curiosity within the scientific community because of their elusive nature and mixed interpretations. Some flying dreams are believed to be an indication of ongoing physical growth, while others may be taken as a first step in lucid dreaming - a state in which a person can be simultaneously dreaming and directing the dream. Lucid dreaming is one of the famous esoteric practices described by Carlos Castaneda in “The Art of Dreaming”. Flying can also be a part of a manifest dream of your superiority over someone or something, especially if you’re freely manipulating your limbs at a high altitude. But as in real life, there’s no guarantee that you won’t lose altitude or stumble upon an obstacle in your dream.
A lot of people have reported frightening states of temporary paralysis with almost no breathing and eye movements. This strange effect – scientifically called “sleep paralysis” – is usually accompanied by feeling choked, hearing indistinct (primarily ghastly or demonic) voices, and a strong presence of something or somebody evil in the room. This rare syndrome, still thought by the majority of those influenced to be the scheming of evil spirits, is yet to be researched by official science.
However, there are also different out-of-body experiences which invariably include flying, such as reaching to a heavenly light in a tunnel, or looking down on yourself from a position of an observer. The fragility of a dream is spectacularly conveyed by the subdued colours and ragged texture of this image. It is almost as if you got a visitor from your subconscious, tranquilizing and disturbing at the same time.
Analysis of paintings by Surrealist artists is like the interpretation of dreams. This job is fascinating and somewhat ungrateful, because any work of art is inexhaustible and you will not describe everything, especially if other realities that are inaccessible to us are portrayed there. Some people already understand that the astral worlds permeate the Earth and all of us, although we do not feel and do not sense this energy impact by our physical senses. Nevertheless, they all exist in a single terrestrial Reality and are much more real than ours, frozen in its inertness, the Physical World.
