Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Dreaming that you are levitating means that you are holding on to far-fetched ideas and need to grasp on to more realistic notions. Alternatively, you may be cut off from feeling grounded and safe. It represents a feeling of being disconnected with those around you and feeling helpless.
