      Can U Fly/ How Did You Learn?

      AS skills go flying is very fun and often something people stive for. It did not happen instantly, I had to learn, and will tell more about my own efforts as people reply. I started with long strides, running while taking bigger and bigger steps learning to glide. I even tried hanging from trees and then letting go {Not the most effective. How about you. Can you fly? Sometimes or often? How did you learn?

      I learned to fly, after learning how to levitate objects. I learned that I could move myself through the air, just as easy as I move other things through the air. It gives me perfect control.
      It's not only about the dreams. It's a way of life.

      Cool. In the end that is what worked best for me. I flew in crazy ways for awhile, but after I got good at levitating objects, I just started levitating my self. Now I basicly levitate fast and in a direction rather than super-man type flying. I actually like to float sitting up not fly all stretched out. It is cool you had a similar way of doing it. Thank for the post.
      Peace Be With You. Oh, and sure, The Force too, why not.

      What's happening with me these days is that I fly in the beginning of a lucid dream just effortlessly, like the happiness that comes with becoming lucid just lifts me up and I float through the ceiling and into the sky. Then later on in the dream, my confidence level goes down and I cannot get up nearly as easily.

      I like the levitating objects idea, should give that a try next time.

      I din't learn how to fly I already knew how to IRL...LOL. I believe it's the willingness to accept the 'possibility' that one can fly IRL. I think it's also because I hate the idea of gravity/rules more than anyone...LOL.

      You know in the 10+ years I have been lucid dreaming I have never tried to fly. Ok we maybe once but it didn't work so concentrate on other things. I think I am taking the easy way out...

      Oh my god thats nuts man! your missing out on a lot. Being able to fly is one of the best things about Lucid Dreaming. I strongly suggest you get back to trying it. Well.. I think I did read one post, where the person said they did not like to fly at all. Thats even harder for me to understand, than somebody saying they don't like chocolate.:p

      I guess I'm considered one of the lucky ones because I was flying in my first LD. I can just jump up and fly. I don't have to be in a superman position or anything. It's quite an amazing experience. If I know I'm dreaming, I really have a lot of control because I realize everything around me is in my head and can be manipulated in any way I want it to be.

      Hmmm.... I've never really tried to fly while in perfect clarity... Though I'd rather do something epic first. Like destroy an entire city.

      If you can lift up a car using dream telekinesis, then i'm sure you can pretty much lift yourself up easily as pieIt's that simple: The faster you can move an object around the air with TK, the faster you can be set to fly using TK.


      one more thing: the more you can remain conscious and lucid without loosing it in a dream, the better you'll get at getting more lucids. Don't try to enjoy while you can. First you need to train yourself to remain conscious within a dream then you can say "Let The fun bigin!! "

      I wished I'd learned that, I've made it to the ultimate clarity phase but it took me awhile.

      Check out my dream journal.
      Scroll down to the story about Flying. I't has the info you might want to read. All my dreams have a tittle so it will be easy for u to locate it.
      there is also a picture of a school bus with the story.

      If you don't see it on page 1 then check page 2.
      I would copy and paste the text but It didnít work.

      My signature has the link but if that doesnít work........

      I agree that learning skills like sustaning the dream is most important, along with getting more clarity. Practice skills like flying instead of rape and pillage or what ever crazy fun you spend time on. You will be rewarded in the end when you can have long clear dreams in which you can pick up cars and fly. Great point. Thanks
      Peace Be With You. Oh, and sure, The Force too, why not.

      My flying came surprisingly easy I think. I only had 3 lucid's so far, and first started to fly in the second one. It didn't work, so with my short attention span, I moved on to something more interesting. In the third lucid, which I had last night, I tried it again. I jumped up in the air, and jumped a lot higher then one normally could. At the top of my jump, I just stayed afloat. I don't really know how I did it, but I know I didn't want to come down untill I woke up! :p
      Anyway, the flying started off slow and uncontrolled. I tried many things, like putting my arms in different positions, swimming movements... all the stuff. In the end I found that one arm to the front, pointing to where you want to go, helps with the steering. And I have to make the sound of an engine to control my speed. So when I want to go fast you'll hear me going, vrrrrrrroooooeeeeeemmmm louder and louder

      Perfecting my ability to fly is my main focus right now. I had an extraordinary experience flying about a week ago, soaring up and down, hovering over trees in mid air, catching air currents with my body to influence direction of flight and so forth.

      The method that is working well for me relies in part on the technique offered in the original post. I start taking giant steps, hovering in the air somewhat like a man walking on the moon. When I get sufficient momentum, I concentrate on a point in the distance and try to catch a current in the air and pull myself toward it (visualizing to distant object quickly becoming closer and closer).

      I also agree, if you haven't experienced flyng, you are seriously missing out.

      This raises another very fundamental question. Why is there a propensity to fly in ones dreams (even non-lucid ones). Why do we have an apparent abililty to understand the process once it happens and actually gain control of the situation? I can offer a few theories, but they're pretty "far out there".

      I can fly easily and never had much trouble. There are several tricks I'd like to try next time I have a dream outdoors though, like barrel rolls and somersaults.

      Basically I just throw myself into the air. Thinking about it only makes it harder; it gives your brain time to realize that it's against the laws of reality.

      Back in the day I was horrible at flying, but overtime I got better at it, and now it seems like second nature I am always flying in my dreams if I am headed somewhere. Basically practice is how I learned to fly.

      In my first and only LD so far I have flown. I didn't think of a particular technique, I just took off. Somehow I knew I would be able to.

      Navigating was a bit difficult though and I didn't fly higher than tree-height, but I didn't try to do that, anyway.

      I can fly by simply jumping up and swimming through the air, but I prefer a different method. I like jumping off of something that's really high. My arms act like wings and I just glide.

      i didnt learn how to fly. it just happened. I can just lift up off the ground and go. dont need wings or anything, just like levitating, but I can zoom around and go places. Flying is one of my dream symbols to pointing out that it IS a dream. (I tend to fly alot)

      Ah, so you're the one who's been peekin through my window at night

      Not sure it was something I "learned". It was something that just happened a lot in non-lucids. Then, when I finally became lucid, I simply jumped up and expected to be float in the air - and I did. From then on it was just a matter of 'pushing' myself through the air.

      Still, even as an experienced flier, there are dreams in which I can't completely control my flight.
