      Mancon's Guide to Lucid Flying + Techniques

      Mancon's Flying Tutorial



      Hi everyone . This tutorial is all about flying in your lucid dreams. I noticed a fair amount of people were having trouble with flying and how to do it.

      In this tutorial I will talk about all the basic and some advanced ways you can fly. Some ideas I got from others and some I have made up myself.

      Step 1: Confidence! Confidence! Confidence!
      Confidence is the key when it comes to any type of dream control. If you don't believe something will happen then it won't! You have to believe. Dreams have NO rules. It is your mind. You can do anything you want. If your feeling doubtful remind yourself that it is your dream and you can do it!

      Step 2: The Jump
      If you are going to start learning to fly from somewhere high up, like a roof, then you need to realize that gravity DOES NOT exist in a lucid dream. Rules don't apply. When you're starting out NEVER imagine yourself falling downwards. Just imagine yourself going up. Imagine the clouds are sucking you up. Forget everything you know about gravity and just go.
      If your trying to fly from the ground just jump up and imagine your legs are springs and shoot up high! Then imagine your self shooting forward, and then head the direction your going.

      Step 3: Location. Where Do You Want to Go?
      When your flying focus on where you'll be going. If your flying over a long distance then visualize the place and assume it will be there the next time you turn, or over the next mountain, or deep in the valley.
      If your flying short distance then look in the direction your heading for any objects. Then focus on that object and imagine yourself going towards it and it will make flight much easier.

      Step 4: Choosing a Technique
      This is my favorite part of flying. There are so many variations you can do! Here's a list of some of the ones I have made up or heard from others.

      The Superman / Neo:
      Put your arms out and imagine yourself shooting forward!

      The Iron Man
      Put on jet boots that will shoot you across the sky!

      The Platform
      Imagine your standing on a platform and it's pushing you through the air.

      Water
      Stand in any type of water and imagine it wrapping around you. Then let the water push you up into the air, still wrapped around you. (This will work with earth or fire too)

      The Hoverboard
      Stand on a hoverboard, press the on button, and go!

      Frozone
      Stand on an ice platform and skate across the sky!

      Swing!
      Imagine ropes coming out of your wrists like spiderman and swing across the sky

      Let the Clouds Do the Work
      Imagine the clouds are sucking you up into the air and pushing you wherever you want to go.

      Wind Power
      Summon the wind to lift you up and go where you desire.

      The Bird
      Hold your arms out to your side and flap. Off you go!

      The Animal
      Summon an animal of your choice and command it to fly with you on it's back.

      The Leg Length
      Imagine your legs becoming very tall until your high in the sky. Then slowly bring your legs back to their normal height, while your still in the sky.

      The Stranger
      Ask a dream character to point at you and make you fly where you wish. Why should you do the work?

      The Romantic
      Go on a lucid date with someone really special to you. Tell her/him your going to take them on the flight of their life. You won't even think twice about flying with them there.

      The Catapult
      Go to the top of a building and assume a HUGE catapult will be there with a person operating it. Ask them to shoot you wherever you want to go. Hop in the catapult and enjoy! (This also works as a huge slingshot)

      The Flying Car
      Get in the nearest car you see and press the fly button. Lift Off!

      Swimming
      Imagine the air is water and swim through it!

      Magic Object
      A cap,watch,wristband, or anything else! When you put it on you'll start to fly!

      The Button
      Imagine a button appearing by you that says "Fly". Press it. Your in the air!

      The Roller coaster
      Sit in a roller coaster cart and imagine a track appearing before your eyes!

      Wings
      Grow some wings and flap them about!

      Step 5: So...How Do I Land?

      Confidence plays a big role in landing...just like being able to fly. Most people don't have much of a problem with this, but some do. There are many different ways you can land, just like with flying.

      -One way is to imagine the ground actually rising up to where you are flying. Wait until the land touches your feet and then walk around!

      -Another way is similar to my "Let the Clouds Do the Work" technique. Instead of imagining the clouds sucking you up, imagine the ground sucking you down!

      -If you are flying like Iron Man, look at this bad animation of him landing.

      -Pretend you are light like a feather and float down to the ground.

      -If all else fails, imagine the ground is a trampoline and just free fall to the ground.

      Again, CONFIDENCE is a huge thing when it comes to flying and landing. Keep at it and you will get it! Good luck!

      ------------------------------------

      If I think of any more techniques for flying then i'll add them here.

      Thanks for taking the time to read this tutorial and good luck! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!

      Thanks man great tutorial.
      *
      Your Let the Clouds do the work got me into Orbit last night.*
      The way I was flying would only let me get so high for some reason, about 35 foot up.*
      It was like I hit an invisible barrier.*
      I could push it a few more feet, then be pushed back.*
      I remembered your tutorial*and imagined a Cloud above pulling me up, it worked straight away.*
      Because I wanted to be in Orbit to look at the Earth I shot straight through the clouds and right into Orbit in about 3 seconds, much faster than I can fly.*
      The veiw of the Planet I was looking at (it turned out not to be Earth) was disappointing to say the least, very dark and I could just make out land mass. *
      Oh well, still reached a goal I'd set so thanks again.*

      I'd like to add one type of flying I use alot. "The push" or whatever you want to call it haha. Basicly you hold an object, or even your hands or feet and imagine them shooting out a jet of air or something similar. Like a jetstream.

      Awesome tutorial, thanks for the creative ideas! Flying out of a catapult on top of a building sounds like fun

      Oh, haha! I like to imagine breaking the sound barrier and then just shooting forward. I think the iron man method would be the easiest if your trying to go at high speeds. The sun is great you could imagine the sun pulling you towards it at a very fast rate. Good luck!

      Yeh I agree, for the sence of speed use the iron man, you can really feel it in your stomach.
      The pull method gets you places fast but I don't get that same feeling.



      If you only have the skills to do so you can experience anything you can imagine as real.

      Flying isn't the problem for me, the problem is stopping myself from going into hyperspeed and losing conciousness. Great tutorial though!

      I really like this tutorial. Flying is somewhat easy for me, but mid-way it becomes tough. I flap my arms like wings and that helps, but it feels like I'm slowly pulled toward the ground. I'm up for trying some of the other methods on the list, though. Summoning an animal to ride on sounds really cool.

      Also, shapeshifting into something that can fly has helped me in the past.

      In my last LD I had a hard time getting off the ground, though, I was in a rush so I wasn't really imagining anything and was just thinking "I need to fly NOW". I did a lighthearted "hop" before finally getting airborne. I'll be sure to try out that iron man thing next time I remember.

      Thank you so much for this tutorial!
      I found it difficult to fly, and I tried jumping and wings, but I really just think I have to believe I can!

      Special thanks to Darkmatters for my signature picture.
      Check out my Dream Journal !

      I use none of these. I just float in the air as if I'm standing, with my legs and arms slightly apart. When I move I lean forward slightly. I usually can't go very fast though. To actually lift off I don't jump or flap or anhthing - I just will myself to float up a few feet and then I'm off.

      On one occasion I needed to fly through the bars of a fence so I somehow turned myself into a small dove to fit through and then went back to being me on the other side
