parachute

Depicts whatever life skill one uses to deal with anxiety about failing/falling; achieving a more down-to-earth practical attitude after flying high, or retreating into flights of fancy.

Symbolic of looking for safety during a crisis.

If the parachute does not open correctly or has holes in it this means that what you think will keep you safe during a life crisis is not going to protect you

Not a dangerous fall; letting oneself fall gently. Sexual connotation, as in Falling, Brook, and Leaf. You are letting yourself glide through the air, which symbolizes an associative, creative, and playful intellect. This dream symbol also points to more general situations where you are letting yourself go, and you will like it. When in fear of Flying, the parachute usually does not open.

To dream that you are floating down in a parachute signifies that you have protection and security during a time in which turmoil surrounds you.

If you dream that your parachute doesn’t open, you feel you’ve been deserted by one who was supposed to take care of you.

Be careful of all extremes and do not overwork or overplay.

1. To act with abandon; risky business.

2. Travel be­tween levels of understanding, consciousness.

3. To rely on someone or something else for safety—usually emotionally, often financially.

Dreams of a parachute signify a desire to be saved or rescued from a dangerous situation. This dream could also be cautioning you to have a back-up plan, something to cushion yourself should you fall.

1- Dreaming of a parachute suggests that, whatever is happening to us in real life, we have protection that will sec us through. It may also indicate that we are able to face our anxieties and still succeed at least in part.

2- Parachuting as a sport has become very popular, and such a sense of freedom and adventure can easily become apparent in dreams.

3- There is intellectual freedom in the image of parachuting. We have the abilitv to rise above the mundane.

A warning not to be such a realist. It might be better to just let go, as in Abyss, Cliff, Shot, Parachute, Flying, and be more open to something new. Also fear of being destroyed, as in Descent. Points to loss due to miscalculation on the part of the dreamer (see the myth of Daedalus and Icarus) or is a sign of unjustified euphoria and arrogance. This symbol often appears in dreams during times when a person has difficulty achieving orgasm and during acute midlife crisis.

Doubt and insecurity. You need to let go, as in Brook, Leaf, and Parachute. Dreams of falling often appear if you are in the process of transition to a new stage in life. Particularly when you are trying out something new, you will first, just as in the dream, fall flat on your face.

A falling dream happens again and again if you are fighting against your own limitations. It is very helpful to change falling dreams into flying dreams.

According to Freud, falling dreams are always sexual. In the case of women, the question revolves around giving in to erotic desires (fallen women). Freud has dealt with the symbol of falling extensively in his Interpretation of Dreams.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Overdramatization or fleeing from a problematic situation. Looking for clarification in difficult situations. Flying and Falling appear in Abyss, Elevator, and Trap, usually in nightmares; or as in: Brook, Leaf, and in part Parachute, during very pleasurable liberation dreams. In case of teenagers: often a sign that too much is being asked of them and that they are being pressured to succeed. These dreams are often like being intoxicated, having a sense of being elevated, and a lightness: like being in love. Many ancient myths show the connection between flying and sexuality, and while flying today has become a commonplace activity, the old interpretations are still true (see Fear of Flying by Erica Jong). Now modern symbolic interpretations of flying include the image of worldliness, expansive ideas, and communications. Flying is also seen as a symbol of creative ideas. This image may also be a warning not to become too aloof and removed from reality through fantasizing.

The dream may also be a challenge for either being too earthbound or taking flight into a greater dimension.

In Egypt, dreams of flying were interpreted as fleeing from difficulties. In ancient Greece and Rome, dreams of flying were seen as passionate love.

According to Freud, they were dreams of sexual desire and erection (Freud dealt with this extensively). He saw dreams of flying exclusively as desire for sex. Some modern dream experts interpret flying dreams exclusively as a desire to get away from problematic sit- uations, or to cross one’s own boundaries. Some researchers believe that in our dreams we go back to preborn states, make contact with the state of birds, and realize our innate ability to fly. Another contemporary dream researcher, Jack Maguire, believes that most dreams about flying are just a sign that we want to recuperate and refresh ourselves.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Dream Meanings of Versatile

Material aspects: To dream of plunging into something is to recognize that we are facing uncertainty. We are going into something unknown – something that we have perhaps not done before – and are taking a risk. That risk will very often take us into our emotional depths and we will learn new things about ourselves, of which we will then be able to make use.

The sports of bungee and parachute jumping epitomize this. You may like to consult the entries for diving and plumbing.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
