What Does It Mean When You Dream About Levitation?
Levitation is a paranormal phenomenon that represents the ascent of the human body or other objects in the air, using the power of the mind.
Many parapsychologists or religious believers explain levitation as the result of a person’s strong psychic powers and spiritual energy.
Science has yet to confirm that levitation is real and witnessed cases of alleged levitations are explained as being the result of magic tricks, hallucinations or illusions.
Many religions have confirmed levitation events performed by their followers. From a religious point of view, levitation is just a confirmation of the holiness and faith that the levitator possesses.
There are many examples of levitation of religious leaders that are recorded in religious history; Gautama Buddha was allegedly levitating over the water with his legs crossed; Jesus walked on water as he approached his disciples who were in a boat; many saints have been reported walking on water as well; Saint Francis of Assisi was known to levitate, sometimes reaching the height of a tree.
In Christianity, there is something known as demonic levitation which is caused by demonic possessions. It is believed that some Hindu mystics and gurus who have reached high levels of spirituality are also able to levitate.
Levitation is mentioned in Jewish texts many times, and it can be done by magic or other means.
Many Jewish sages were able to levitate using the secret names of God or the power of the wind.
Levitation is explained in a way that the person levitating is in a state of mind where he is able to separate himself from the physical world and possess such a level of spiritual power that his thoughts, regardless of how impossible they may seem to his observers, make him come true and they actually float above the ground or do some other impossible things.
During the moments of levitation the people who are doing this, consider what they are doing as normal as if they were walking on the ground. Levitation usually happens during meditation.
There is evidence of 19th century American and British mediums who claimed to have levitated during the séances they held. Many of them were frauds and it was proven that they used tricks to do this.
Although for many of us it seems impossible that such a phenomenon is real, it is not excluded that we can experience it during a dream episode.
People are prone to dream about doing things that are physically impossible like flying or doing other impossible things and these dreams in many cases have powerful symbolic meaning for the dreamer.
Dreams about flying and levitating above the ground are not uncommon, and they always have special meaning for the dreamer, especially if they continue to recur.
Levitating or floating in the air usually has a good meaning, and symbolizes freedom, independence, happiness, optimism, success and satisfaction. People dream of levitating in the air, over water, over their beds, in space, or in some other circumstances.
Flying dreams and levitating dreams can sometimes have similar meanings, but levitating often has a spiritual component to them.

It is a well-known fact that our dreams can be induced by some biological facts, for example, we are feeling cold while sleeping and that feeling induces a dream about freezing somewhere in winter or being in ice water, etc.
