Dreaming of aeroplane turbulence

Dreaming of aeroplane turbulence

Dear Janet Louise,
I am planning a gap year after high school with one of my friends. I recently had a dream that I was in an aeroplane with my friend when we suddenly hit turbulence. I remember feeling scared and anxious. Then, without warning, the plane nose dived towards the ground. My mother suddenly appeared in the seat to the right of me. I found myself clinging to her, screaming over the rush of air and asking, “What will happen when we land?” I wanted her to tell me exactly what would happen. What does this mean? It has put me off air travel!

Dear Amy,
Your dream is subconsciously saying to you that through the excitement and planning, you are actually feeling a lot of uncertainty and self-doubt. Regain your self-confidence, believe in yourself and go see the world. Believe in your plans and goals, gain a better perspective and you will overcome any obstacles. You have great stature in your chosen field waiting for you.
