      problems flying in LDs.

      when i try flying in LDs i fly to a certain height but i would then lose altitude.
      no matter how hard i try i will only raise a few more feet then drop again. any reasons for this?

      I think it has to do with the fact that in your dream you don't actually believe that you are able to fly.

      You start of flying, and then your subconscious thinks "Wait a minute, I can't fly, why is this happening?" and because your subconscious is king inside of your dreams, you lower to the ground again.

      Key is to really believe that you can fly because it is all in your head. You should have some reaction to your subconscious like "yeah, normally I can't fly, but this is just a dream. Inside of my dreams, I am my own god, so if I want to fly, I'll fly!"

      I don't have any scientific proof to back this up, but I always feel like this is how it works.

      thankyou, i understand what you are saying. the fact that I dont truely belive that I can do it probably does have quite some effect. so self-confidence will have a profound effect.

      Selfconfidence is the key to control in lucid dreams, exactly. Good luck with that!

      I can always fly, all i did was jump then believed I was going to keep getting higher and higher and I did.I remember thinking in my head wow how do i remember the exact skyline in my home city...I just floated about 100 feet in the air and enjoyed the view I really want to learn to control my dreams more then this though, since i can only seem to realize im dreaming and usually wake up after about 30 seconds.

      This happens a lot. You just got scared, people don't like being up high with nothing supporting them. Maybe next time you want to go really high, try using a plane or a hang glider or something

      I say fly near the ground. It is much more fun. Dodging and swirving and all that.

      I would have to agree with ninja, take a plane of fly on something. Try a magic carpet. That is, if you're really high up.

      I had this same problem in the beginning. The method I used was to think of my body as a plane. I would take off just like a plane would, starting low to the ground, and building up speed. The faster I would go, the higher I could go. Then after a while I was just able to take off from a standing position. Also, I would have to agree that belief is the key.

      I would suggest doing something inside your dream that would make you think you gained the ability to fly. Like say outloud, "HMM... if i drink this potion, I'll gain the power to fly!." And then conjure a potion and drink it.

      That happens to me sometimes, but I think the problem for me at least is that when I start falling in the air, I just think "why can't I fly?" then I'm convinced for some reason that I can't fly anymore, and I keep falling.
