You’ve Lost Your Head

Dreaming about being headless is often a sign that there is a disconnect between your head and your heart (what you’re thinking and what you’re feeling). For example, you might be thinking so much about an upcoming match of vocabulary test coming up and doing so much memorization and study that you are living temporarily mostly in your head and thinking, thinking, thinking. When I am consumed with a project and forget to eat, that is when I know I am too much in my mind and head. You may be lacking a sense of balance in your life. Try to identify the role that your heart and mind play in your life. Is one taking more control than the other? You may be so focused on common sense and logic that you have started to neglect or suppress your emotions. On the other hand, it’s possible that you are letting your feelings dictate your actions without thinking things through.

Movement Dreams: Boats

Having dreams about boats is often a sign of how well you are navigating your emotions in your waking life. How do you cope when bad situations come your way—do you sink into a sea of negative emotions, or do you stay afloat through the storm? Try to remember what the water looked like in your dream. Were there calm waters and clear skies? This could mean that you are experiencing “smooth sailing” in your life. You confidently handle your own emotions and everything in your life feels like it’s under control. On the other hand, if the boat experienced rough seas in your dream—crashing waves or winds tearing at the sails—it might mean that you’re struggling to keep your emotions under control. You might be feeling overwhelmed in your waking life, or letting unhappy thoughts and feelings get the better of you. Think about ways that you can comfortably and safely express what you are feeling. Let this negativity run its course, but don’t let it sink you.

Movement Dreams: Walking

Dreams about walking often symbolize patience. When we walk somewhere, instead of running or driving in a car, we have much more time to take in our surroundings. Walking is a sign that you aren’t in a rush or feeling pressured to get somewhere at a specific time. Step by step, you move forward, absorbing everything around you. If you apply this idea to your waking life, you might take it as a sign that you’re taking your time in life, little by little getting to where you need to be, whether that is in terms of achievement, self-fulfillment, or spirituality. You’re making consistent progress without feeling like you have to try and play catch up. Bring your attention to your surroundings in your dream, your destination, or any other details like obstacles that might better help you form your interpretation.

Movement Dreams: Flying

Flying is one of the most common dreams, not to mention one of the most fun! If you’re soaring through the air in your dream, gazing out over the earth beneath you, you are probably feeling on top of the world in your waking life. Flight represents freedom and release, so this dream might be a sign that you are experiencing some of those feelings in your life, or it could be encouragement to let loose. Dreams of flying suggest that you have confidence in your ability to rise above challenges that come your way. You can do anything or be anything your heart desires, there are no limits to what you can do.

Movement Dreams: Jumping Really High

This dream can be interpreted several ways—it all depends on the context and how it made you feel. Dreams about suddenly being able to jump really high can be exhilarating, but they can also feel scary. Jumping up high can mean falling very far at the same time, so if you jumped up in the air and were filled with sudden terror as you started to fall back down, this dream might mean you’ve set your goals really high and are afraid of letting people down. It can also mean you’re not able to handle the pressure you’ve put on yourself. On the other hand, if you are enjoying yourself in the dream, it means you’re taking the difficult things life throws at you in stride. Dreaming about jumping high can also be a symbol of newfound freedom or the relief that comes along with letting go of something that has been stressing you out. Maybe you’ve quit a bad habit like biting your nails, eating too much candy and sweets or you’ve ended a toxic friendship. Whatever it is, you’re starting fresh. If you are feeling bogged down in life, you can take that dream as a sign that you can and should try to release some of the things dragging you down so that you can live a more lighthearted, carefree lifestyle.

Running in Place

Having a dream about running in place, being unable to get anywhere no matter how fast you run, probably means that you are stuck in the past. Something has happened in your life that you are unable to move on from, and this dream is bringing your attention to it. Because you are not totally present in your waking life, you are missing opportunities for growth that will be necessary as you get older. In this case, running in place might represent your own stubbornness and dislike for change.

Moving in Slow Motion

Dreams about moving in slow motion can be taken as a sign to slow down in your waking life. You might be rushing into new relationships, experiences, or responsibilities without taking the time to process what is already around you. Pay attention to the people, places, and things in your waking life. Work on increasing your mindfulness and appreciating what you already have before you start seeking out more. You probably need to focus on taking life one step at a time—otherwise, one day, you’ll regret not living in the moment. These dreams can also draw your attention to overlooked details. When you are moving in slow motion, you might notice things you never would have if you were moving along at a regular pace. In the same way, try to soak in all the details and hints in your waking life that you would normally gloss over. There might be something for you to learn there.
