Levitation is a paranormal phenomenon which represents the rising of the human body or other objects in air by using the power of the mind.
Many parapsychology or religious believers explain levitation as being the result of the person’s strong psychic powers and their spiritual energy.
Science still hasn’t confirmed that levitation is real and the witnessed cases of alleged levitations are explained as being a result of magic tricks, hallucinations, or illusions.
Many religions have confirmed events of levitation performed by their followers. From a religious standpoint, levitation is only a confirmation of the holiness and faith the levitator possesses.
There are many examples of religious leaders levitating that are recorded in religious history; Gautama Buddha was reportedly levitating over water with his legs crossed; Jesus walked on water while approaching his disciples who were in a boat; many saints were 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. Some Hindu mystics and gurus who have reached high levels of spirituality are also believed to be able to levitate.
Levitation is mentioned in Jewish texts many times, and it can be done either by magic or by other means.
Reportedly, many Jewish sages were able to levitate using the secret names of God or the power of wind.
Levitation is explained in a way that the person levitating is in a state of mind where they are able to separate themselves from the physical world and possess such a level of spiritual power that their thoughts, regardless of how impossible they might seem to their observers, become a reality and they actually float above the ground or do some other impossible things.
During the moments of levitation the people who are doing it, consider what they are doing as normal as if they were walking on the ground. Levitation usually happens during meditation.
There is evidence of mediums in America and Britain from the 19th century, who have claimed to have levitated during the séances they have performed. Many of them were frauds and it was proven that they have used tricks to do it.
Although for many of us it seems impossible that such phenomenon is real, it is not excluded that we might experience it during a dream episode.
People are prone to dreaming about doing things that are physically impossible, such as flying or doing other impossible things and these dreams in many cases have a powerful symbolic meaning for the dreamer.
Dreams about flying and levitating above ground are not unusual, and they always have a special meaning for the dreamer, especially if they keep recurring.
Levitating or floating in air, usually has a good meaning, and symbolizes freedom, independence, happiness, optimism, success, and satisfaction. People dream about levitating in the air, over water, over their beds, into space, or some other circumstances.
Flying dreams and levitating dreams could sometimes have similar meanings, but levitating often has a spiritual component to them.
It is important to remember the feelings you had during your dream about levitation. Maybe you felt scared or you felt elated.
If you were happy and excited, the dream reveals your current state of emotions. You are probably very satisfied with some current circumstances.

Maybe you are afraid or upset by something that is going on in your life, and that disturbs you, even during your sleep. It is important to decipher what makes you feel bad and try to confront it.
Sometimes dreams about levitation can be induced by some biological circumstances occurring during our sleep.
It is a well-known fact that our dreams can be induced by some biological facts, for example, we are feeling cold during sleep and that feeling induces a dream about freezing somewhere in winter or standing in ice cold water, etc.
These dreams can sometimes be a result of so-called sleep paralysis when during sleep we cannot move our muscles because they are relaxing and we tend to have a feeling as we are unwillingly floating or levitating above our bed, etc.

Sometimes, dreams about levitation indicate the rise of our religious feelings. It could indicate the final realization of the person that there is more than our physical reality.

The dream could be a reminder from your subconscious to get back on the ground and become aware of your current abilities.
