      Shapeshifting and Flying - Have you?

      I want to know who's Shapeshifted and/or flown. If you have, please share what it's like! I find these things interesting. I am going to try to have a LD tonight and I want to do one of these things, but first, I want to have at least a rough idea what it'll be like. I'm thinking I may shift into a winged wolf; two things in one. Saves me a little time. ^^ So, let me know! I think this would be interesting.

      I did a study on werewolves in dreams to see what the major triggers of werewolf dreams were. Besides the creepy woods at night and spooky old cabins, the main trigger was anger.

      If you want to shapeshift to beast form in a dream, let yourself get really, really angry and violent.

      I shapeshifted into a wolf before and grown wings, not in the same LD though. I used the method in the movie "Blood and Chocolate" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxxVYmX5iy0. Cusp is right about using anger to turn into a werewolf, it is easier that way for me. I can't explain growing wings though, I've only done it once and it hurt alot!

      I somehow manage to shapeshift all the time. Sometimes without even doing it willingly.

The wave of fur moved up my forearm, and my muscles twisted and grew. I pulled my shirt off, and looked down to see my chest muscles swell and sprout dense dark fur. I was werewolfing out pretty hard. I felt my chin extend into a snout, and my teeth grow into long fangs. I fell down on all fours, and could feel incredible strength and power. I knew I was a terrible beast.

      Strangely, I stayed in this werewolf form, and finished dinner with my friends. They believed it was a dream, and were throwing me food to catch in my wolf's mouth. It was a great party. Towards the end, we were packing up the leftover food to take home. I grabbed a whole uneaten pizza to take home to my girlfriend. I thought she would love it when she woke up in the morning. I also gathered up all the toys to give to my little brother at his birthday party the next day.

      Halfway out the door, I remembered that I could not take anything with me to the waking world. This frustrated me. I took the bag of toys, and tossed it out into the landscaping. All the toys scattered in the bushes, and I saw a bunch of little kids run over to pick them up. I was still holding the pizza box. I used my werewolf strength to throw it out like a frisbee. As soon as it left my hand, I felt myself rip apart physically and mentally. A fearsome looking black wolf leaped out of my body, chasing the frisbee-pizza across the lawn. I remained standing, with my arm outstretched from the throw, but I was now completely human. My consciousness was in both places at once. I was watching the frisbee fly away, and the powerful wolf chasing it. I also felt myself in the wolf's body. I could feel all four of my legs pounding on the wet grass, and could see the frisbee flying just out of my reach. I leaped in the air, and sunk my fangs into the cardboard box. I also watched from my human body, as the wolf jumped to catch the pizza box. It was very strange.

      Just then, a group of kids brought me back the toys I had scattered in the bushes. I explained why I had thrown them away, and told them to keep them. When I turned back around to look for my wolf, it had vanished in the darkness.

      Okay, anger and frustration, check. Didn't have an LD last night. -__-' I can throw that into it. And I can summon up a DC that I really hate. ... Maybe do something mean to them in animal form Robot_Butler, I think that's really interesting.

      I shape-shifted into a fish once in a non-LD. It was a while ago so I can't remember all the details, but it was relatively simple. I essentially shrunk down to the appropriate size and sprouted fins. Actually, it took place when I was watching something on a TV which I knew would cause me ot change shape. It didn't last too long, though.

      As far as flying, it's a fabulous sensation! Being lifted in the air and over the ground below, feeling the freedom from being confined to walk all the time, the wind whipping by your face and through your hair. It's fantastic If you need some ideas on how to get up, check out the Dream Flying Tutorial. There's no "winning technique," but simply a matter of lifting yourself in the air and moving yourself around in the direction of your choice. It's not an "advanced" technique, so don't worry about not being able to do it (if you haven't already). Go for it, enjoy it, and you'll be fine

      I tried to shapeshift into something once. I don't remember what (I'm sure it's in my dream journal somewhere), but I remember that I started to feel some changes happen, but I could never fully complete the transition and ended up giving up. As for flying, well I do that all the time.

      i shape shift quite a lot and werewolves are my favorite thing for some reason...anywho its relatively easy since i just picture what i want to look like and then feel how that creature's body would move and work.while i'm doing that i shift into the creature i'm trying to be.wings are i think the funnest things to shift.i usually just move my shoulders and feel my back muscles growing out into wings.

      I have flying dreams very often and I LOVE them. For the most part, my dreams are like swimming up from the bottom of a pool. Getting off the ground is often difficult- I have to "grab" the air and kick/lift up off the ground just so and it sometimes takes me a few tries.
      When I was a kid, I had a nightmare/incredibly inspirational dream about flying above the treetops and until recently I always stayed low. THe last few years though, I sometimes fly toward space before the old fear resurfaces- when I dream of entering space I'm usually a spaceship or in one.

      I've dreamed of being a wolf, a dog, a bug and a car (to name the few I remember right now) and they were awesome because I saw and experienced life through their "eyes". But I didn't shape-shift into them, I entered the dream that way.

      Went ahead and moved to Dream Control.

      Gah...don't get me started on flying. It's something that's taken me a while to do, and I still haven't done it fully. The most I can do is get 300 ft. into the air. But even that little bit is still amazing.

      I've always wanted to transform, but it's never actually been on my To-do list.

      I almost forgot about this dream:

      Quote Originally Posted by Robot_Butler View Post

My arms sprouted feathers and flattened into eagle wings. I tucked my legs beneath me, folding my knees into my chest, and extending my toes into long bird talons. I glided down towards an open door, and out into the sunlight.

      I beat my wings, and lifted into the air to turn over in an exhilarating high loop. Coming down from the loop, I thought for a second to remember what I wanted to do. I remembered the Dream Views task of the month to taste something intangible. I ended my loop a few feet off the ground, hovering near a stone lamp post at the foot of a driveway. I reached out toward the red stone with my human hand, and tried to draw the color off of it. A cloud of dark red dust lifted off the surface, and covered my fingers like dust from a terracotta conte crayon. I brought my fingers to my lips and licked them. They tasted gritty and earthy, like clay. "This is what red must tase like," I thought to myself.

      Not satisfied with this result, I looked up to the beautiful blue sky above me. I was amazed at how clear my environment was, and how far I could see in all directions. I floated upward, towards the beautiful clear sky. I had to get above the shadows of the surrounding buildings. As I floated upward, I saw the sun crest the roof of the nearest house. As it appeared, I opened my mouth wide to suck in it's brilliant light. I immediately had the sensation of my mouth filling with something. I could feel pressure on my tongue, like opening your mouth while under water. It tasted leafy, like cooked spinach. I thought to myself, "I must be tasting my own chlorophyll, like a plant."

      The light from the sun was blinding me no matter how much I squinted. I instinctively closed my eyes for a second to block out it's bright light. As soon as my eyes shut, I found myself back in bed.

      flying is the most amazing thing i've done in a LD. at first i simply couldnt do it so i jacked a car and sped down the dream highway and after reaching 80 i slammed on the brakes and rocketed through the windshield and soared upward, the sensation of the wind in your face is amazing! the car trick i learned later wasnt needed. all you have to do is believe you can do it, now i simply lift off the ground. i want to transform so bad and im itching to try it

      I've never tried shapeshifting in a lucid dream, but flying is something I do quite often in lucid dreams. (and if it counts, I always float instead of walking in lucids) The first time I flew in a lucid dream, it happened completely spontaneously and it was just completely natural to me although I couldn't really stop accelerating. I've become pretty good at controlling the speed now, but for some reason I can't descend without simply falling. If I try to fly down, I end up just hanging limply in the air, which feels rather awkward. The feeling of flying, however, is incredible. Before I actually tried it, I wasn't too excited about flying in lucid dreams, but I could never have been more wrong about how amazing it is. I simply cannot describe the feeling of freedom you get while soaring around in your own little world, unrestricted by the laws of nature and society. I don't think anyone can possibly imagine what it's like before they've tried it out themselves.

      I've shapeshifted a few times and flown lots of times. I've shapeshifted into girls 3 different times, i transformed into a car and started racing down the street, i think that's it with shapeshifting. When i turned into a car i just thought about it, when i turned into a girl, it was accidental. Most of the times when i have flown, it was because i was in "danger". Most recent flying dream was a few weeks ago, i was at this playground, which was a real playground in my old neighborhood, and there was this dobermin pincher, all black dog, and i looked at him and he was about to attack me so, i just flew in the air and hovered. The thing is i was only able to hover about 15 to 30 feet in the air, and the dog was jumping up and almost grabbing my legs.

      I like to fly like all the time haha. As for shapeshifting, I have done it a few times in LDs and in regular dreams but for some reason I haven't gotten too proficient at that yet. Didn't attempt it too much I guess but I should give it a try again next time it happens.
      This entire reality is SELF REFLECTION. You reflect your essence and project it onto the universe.

      Shapeshift, put energy on limb I want to change and will it to do so, generally from hands to claws, tough to pass into non-human form, use a spell for better results, why bother to do it while my subconcient can? From those, spider and dragon are my favorites.

      Fly... I don't like it much. I think there was a post explaining how I learned that one <.<
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now

      Thanks for the replies, guys! I'll edit this tomorrow, I just want to let you guys all know that you're being extremely helpful. Now, time for me to get dreaming! XD



      Edit: :] Okay, now I'm going to quote some people and be like, "Whoa." XD

      That's really cool. I read about that task of the month (though I wasn't on this site when it was available to do) and I thought it would be awesome. ^__^ So... Light tastes like spinach. That's interesting. O__o

      To all of you who posted about flying... I can only imagine what it's like. I'm determined to do it eventually, though.

      If you grow wings, do you feel the muscles in them? Do you feel the nerves in them? If you become a four leged thing, can you feel all four legs? Or do you just feel like yourself?

      I've done both, but non-lucidly. I've had multiple dreams where I'm a wolf, and I can feel all legs. I had one dream where I had wings, and I could feel them. That sensation was amazing, because I could feel the air billowing up and them filling out, the feathers ruffling (yes, feathers... they were white, too)... the wind was incredible. ^__^

      That looks really cool. Lucid Dreams just keep impressing me. I can't wait to have a real one. Every time someone describes them they seem so perfect. I have once flyed on a flying broom in a non-lucid dream. My parents had bought it for me and when I had riped the package I was really excited to use it. As I flew through the air I could feel a great sensation. I wish it had been an LD, I would have enjoyed it more. Is it weird to fly with wings? (weird's not a bad thing to me... I love all the weird sensation that we get when we SP...)

As I flew through the air I could feel a great sensation. I wish it had been an LD, I would have enjoyed it more. Is it weird to fly with wings? (weird's not a bad thing to me... I love all the weird sensation that we get when we SP...)
      :] I've only had two. Both ended with the dream shifting back to non-lucid. x__x KEEP UP THE HARD WORK! *pushes self to LDing limits*

      Thanks

      Anyways, Even if it take a year, I'll try and try and never stop. LDing is way to got to just give up on it. How long have you been doing this. Aperently, it takes close to 4 weeks to be able to LD. I'm at my 1st/Starting my second.
      OOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOO

      Well, my first Lucid Dream was either over the summer or last year, and that was after I discovered the topic and became absolutely obsessed with it. That night, I was up until 11PM, doing reality checks every 5 minutes, and ended up doing a RC in my dream, then became lucid. The one that I love is when you plug your nose and try to breathe. XD It's funny if you can breathe, because obviously that can't happen in the waking world. ^__^ Sooo, I've known about it for awhile. :3 But I just recently got back into it. So, yeah, two so far. But the second was the one that re-triggered this obsession. XD

      If you count that first one, anywhere from half a year to a year. ^__^ But I know so much more about it now!
