      The EASY way to fly.

      Many people have problems flying and other things. All you need to do here is shut your eyes in the dream.

      Imagine a magic wand in front of you. Envision it, and open your eyes. Tell yourself that it can do anything if you think it, and want to fly.

      Just a caution, when one shut's their dream eyes, quite often it ends the dream. A little workaround I found is to picture yourself in third person, well second person would work too, when you need to close your eyes. Also I think you only limit yourself with beliefs, if waving a wand makes one believe they can fly, go for it. I think it's an unnecessary crutch, at least for me it is, though.

      Well, its the only way it works for me. Shutting my eyes only wakes me up when I do it A LOT! And even then when I fall back asleep I find myself back in the dream.

      Really?

      It was my impression that when one closes one's eyes in a dream, one will wake up. Just as one goes to sleep when one closes one's eyes while awake, so, inversely, when one closes one's eyes in sleep, one wakes up.

      So it is that what was once was so easy quickly accrues complications...

      Just think: Hey fuck, I can fly. Like summoning shit is harder then flying for me. Just jump off a buidling and start to fly, that's how I did it the first time.

      It's not easy to do something in a dream you can't do in real life. Your mind can't believe it just that easily. I would suggest just exploring the dream world more (but of course, if by chance yoe find yourself at a cliff or top of a skyscraper, give it a shot)

      Flying for me is often the first thing that I do once I have established my lucidity in a dream.

      I've found it is less about the "thrill" of flying than it is a way to transition to a new dream scene if the one I am in is not to my liking (I've still not mastered full dream control).

      Like this afternoon, I transitioned into a LD as I took a nap, and suddenly saw these weird rocket arms extending from my elbows. Immediately I began to fly around this cityscape I was in, worrying the whole time about hitting electric lines (ha ha...).

      But ultimately I don't have any particular ritual I go through to get to flying, I just basically follow what Neuro was saying - "Hey fuck, I can fly." And off I go.

      I have problems with flying too. The last time i tried to jump from a skyscraper, i ended up falling to the ground and dying in my dream. I saw my own eye jumping out of my dream body =P, and my broken legs, and stuff.

      Sometimes I can fly, but only short distances. I had a dream i had a magic cap that made me fly. But i couldn't fly much. I want to fly

      Try snapping your fingers and say "flying pills!" Then a pill should appear, take it and you will start to fly. (My pills usually come out in different colors, so far ive had red and white. They were also very crunchy Always works for me

      What ive read

      Ive read somewhere on the internet that you just look down and imagin that the ground is moving under you ( up, down, side to side). it said its all in mind power, you just got to believe. i cant test this technique because im and extreme nubie (5 -10 minutes in lucidy) but if this works let me know.

      Flying works for me everytime because I simply believe in it. I run, I jump, I fly - neo style. Sometimes my feet are heavy and hit the ground but as I get higher I can fly perfectly. I make it happen, it's quite hard to explain because there isn't much to it. As I realize I'm dreaming I know everything is possible, and flying is the easiest thing of them all. Hovering is also cool.

      Flying is an awesome way to impress the DCs

      From my memories of LD's as a kid flying seemed to come easy to me too once I had done it a few times.

      I never jumped of a building though, I just ran and took a high leap from one foot as though to fly, sometimes it would take me a few tries but I knew it would work and it did.

      I think a good tip woudl be to try it from the ground or a wall rather than a skyscraper.

      Sometimes in dreams that I fly in I just run and flap my arms and then I'm flying. Othertimes I'm already flying when the dream starts up. I'll also do this thing that I call gliding. I'm upright on my feet and just gliding over the surface going fast. It can be uphill, downhill, on dirt, pavement, or other surface. It's not quite the same sensation as flying as I don't have the height perspective looking down but is quite fun just the same.

      For many people closing their eyes in a dream instantly awakens them. Now, wouldn't you hate to throw away a rare lucid dream by closing your eyes, if it would only serve to wake you up?

      Yes, but that wasn't my point, I was nitpicking.

      I never even have to close my eyes. The foraging-in-pocket, asking-a-stranger and hand-behind-back techniques work well enough for me.

      When I was younger I could never fly in my non-lucids. I'd always run, jump, and fall flat on my face.

      To this day, flying in dreams is sometimes hard. Seems like some dreams I fly, some I don't.

      One time that I tried to fly, it wasn't working. Then all of a sudden the wind picked my up and "wooshed" me away!

      I guess one should just try to figure out what method works best for them.

      Magic wands, flying pills, Lucid wizard, jumping off buildings, or just believing and doing it.

      Test, test, test.

      During my post- operation coma yesterday I had a truly epic dream where I could fly, phase through walls, drive underwater, survive being bitten by a gigantic spider, change the main character of the dream several times... all without being lucid I think this bodes well for future LDs.

      that being said, my preferred method for flying is the 'super mario approach.' This seems to work well for video game fans. Anyway, it's as simple as this:
      1. Hold down B (this will make sense to your dream self)
      2. Run in a straight line (really fast since you're holding down B, duh!)
      3. JUMP!
      4. Jump so high that you pass some clouds and maybe hit the ozone layer.
      5. When you look down, you'll see the world from way up in the sky. You'll probably lose some altitude, but don't worry! At this point it's much easier to stay in the air than it is to return to earth (the sky is essentially a different dreamscape, in order to return to earth your brain has to generate a new dreamscape, which takes time and effort, so staying afloat is literally less work)
      6. Just fly around and have a grand time. If you do eventually come back to earth, try putting on a cape and repeating the process.

      Actually, it may be more complicated than your simply 'believing'. The Dreamer who jumped off the skyscraper 'believed' he could fly the first moment he jumped, and yet that belief did very little to keep him from slamming into the Dream's pavement... eyeballs popping out of his head as his leg bones snapped like twigs.

      No, you believe because you can fly. You aren't flying because you believe.

      The Truth is that I suspect that one must arrive at some level of psychological maturity, some rite of passage, some level of personal growth, before one can fly.

      You yourself appear young. Perhaps you can fly now, but that skill may be taken away as the onset of adulthood complicates your life and personality.

      It may not be as simple as you suppose.

      Wow, I was going to suggest the exact same thing!
      My first LD didnt last long enough for me to try flying, but I had another last night and I tried the same method you suggested. Just summon one of those feather things then run and jump

      But perhaps that was only because the dream scene was a 2D mario scape (it was interesting, lol)
