To dream of a helicopter represents plans or projects that are getting off the ground and allow you full discretion. Total freedom that allows you to adapt. Plans or projects that are “getting of the ground” and can adapt as needed. The ability to start, stop, or change as needed with full freedom. Living free at your own pace. No fear of adapting while undertaking new plans.
Negatively, a helicopter may reflect your fear of people that have the ability to adapt as needed to control you. Opposition that can start, stop, or change as needed with full freedom. Feelings about having the freedom to be a total jerk while dealing with an off-on problem.
To dream of a helicopter crashing represents feelings about failed plans or projects being carried out with full discretion. Versatile progressive situations that have failed. New experiences which you can start and stop at your leisure which have resulted in failure.
Example: A woman dreamed of seeing someone in a helicopter shooting a machine gun. In waking life was experiencing stress relief and increased confidence after moving homes and was able to get off her medication. The helicopter reflected her moving homes and new found independence to live freer and at her own pace.
Example 2: A man dreamed of a helicopter coming towards him. In waking life he got a lot of time off work and was able to start a computer project with his free time. The helicopter reflected how he was able to stop and start his computer project at his leisure.
Example 3: A woman dreamed of black helicopters coming for her. In waking life she had been declared legally insane by her jealous husband while attempting to divorce him. She could’t stop the police and doctors from coming after her and committing her to an institution.
