"encima de", means "on top of" or "above x (x meaning something like above me. You can also use sobre, here. The bird flew above me, El pajaro volo sobre mi or you can say arriba de mi). "Sobre" means "on". El libro esta sobre la mesa or encima de la mesa. The book is on the table. (Sobre also means envelope). In most cases both words can be used to say the same thing. The use of some words in spanish vary depending on the country (Mexico, España, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, etc.)
