    Every night I dream of flying, sometimes low when I’m feeling down…but when I put more love and energy into my effort into my dream, I can soar extremely high. In that dream, everybody I encounter is amazed on how I can fly…they ask and want to know how they can too. It basically represents my spiritual growth and letting go of an old troubling relationship, and how I can help others grow as well.
