Dream symbol Hot air balloon


floating, flying high, overview, weightlessness, freedom

So lightly floating, these colorful hot air balloons rise into the sky. Every hot air balloon needs hot air for lift and by generating this hot air, which is blown into the envelope of the balloon, the carrying basket full of people, pulled by the balloon rises and goes up into the free airs. This is only possible because hot air is lighter than cool.

Meanwhile, the hot air keeps cooling down during the balloon flight and prevents the hot air balloon from sinking to extend the flight further.

This heating is an interesting sound. The jet flame produced by the gas heats the balloon and it continues to be kept alive by the gas. It is not possible to steer such a balloon with accuracy, and only learned skill in descending and ascending can make skilful use of wind speed and direction. In order to land, it is necessary for the pilot to allow the air inside the balloon to cool down again.

What fascinating journey is hidden behind the symbol hot air balloon, we can find out soon ...

General dream interpretation

Interpreted in a completely general way, the dream symbol "hot air balloon" in dream research embodies the sign of diversity of ideas and valuable experiences. As always, however, in every dream situation the concrete context in which the hot balloon appears is in demand.

If the dreamer sees himself taking off in a hot air balloon and driving away, this may indicate that in real life he is distancing himself from his goals and possibly losing his grip on the ground. One's mind has become entangled in irrational things and lost touch with reality. To regain a clear outlook on one's goals, distance would not be amiss.

However, if the balloon sails gently and calmly in the skies above the landscape, this indicates a far-sighted view of the future, which holds much good in store for him.

Psychological dream interpretation

A hot air balloon announces on the psychological dream interpretation level a wishful thinking that occupies the dreamer in the depths of his soul. It could be possible that he wants to escape from a too tense, freedom-stealing and narrow life affair. He has no desire to be controlled anymore, would prefer to disappear into thin air.

But hidden in this dream symbol of the balloon is the concept of ADVENTURE. Simply surrendering to the flow, letting oneself drift by the ocean without oars and without thinking about the past and future expectations. The rising from the ground brings the dreamer to a meta-position, from where the present circumstance of life can be well observed and the wide view reveals to him clarity for the right course of action.

Furthermore, this symbol "hot air balloon" can reflect uncertainty in life. Depending on the wind direction, the balloon moves fast or slow, more upwards or towards the ground.

If the balloon ride occurs as rather rough or even stormy, this also indicates the unpredictability of the current situation in the life of reality. By getting into the basket of the hot air balloon, it also reveals a hope for a favorable wind and a well-meaning, happy life.

Spiritual dream interpretation

The view of spiritual dream interpretation gives this dream symbol the meaning of JOY and spiritual freedom to expand beyond space, to grow beyond oneself.
