      Lightbulb How to run faster in dreams?

      Whenever I try to run in my dreams I run in super slow mo and I need to catch my breath a lot. Do you have any tips on how to fix this?

      I've heard that running on all fours often helps~
      Belief, of course. If you have confidence that you will run faster, and such you make it so, it will happen. It's your dream, you have total control.

      Thread title fixed~

      If you don't think about it it won't happen.

      Don't try to run like you do in real life with your legs, just imagine that you're on some sort of invisible vehicle like a unicycle or some such thing and that you can really zip it. In other words, don't focus on physically pumping your legs, rather focus on moving forward quickly (whether or not your legs are moving isn't really important).

      Hmm, I had an idea. Maybe, when you run, you can imagine that it's because the air has the consistency of water, and just start swimming, and swim really fast. Sure, it wouldn't be a permanent solution, but it would be fun for a while. Then it could lead into other solutions such as "get above the water" or make a gigantic drain or something. Meh, just throwing out ideas.

      you could also think totally outside of the box by altering time. Run and speed up the movement of everything around you so that it blurs. And tell yourself that you'll be at point B when you stop running and the blurring stops.

      To get a better description of what I mean....try youtubing The Flash TV show...theres first person scenes where it's shows super fast movement through city streets.

      I can vouch for that. Normally I run faster on four legs in my dreams than I do on two.

      Blurring is a bad idea, it's almost guaranteed to lose lucidity.

      must be different for me. I've blurred things while running and flying. I even used it while standing in place to go to the future, and I've yet to lose lucidity doing it.

      dream environments are constantly changing, which makes running kind of pointless in my opinion.

      if your destination changes to something else before you even get there, and your starting location ceases to exist after you've left it, then have you really covered any 'distance' at all?

      Yelling "maximum speed!" has been very successful for me when i needed to run faster.
      I have also had some success visualizing myself running faster.

      A lot a people comment on this exact same thing, running real slow and also if they're fighting they can never land a punch as everything is in slow motion lol.

      I love Crysis


      I usually don't run in dreams, if I want to go fast I will usually fly/hover a foot or so above the ground and get places that way.

      Sounds like someone plays a lot of crysis Cool game, but, you need a good gpu for VH Anyways, believing that you can run faster is all you need. Don't say what if I can't, say I can do it, it's my dream and I can do anything I want, etc.... then just start running

      BigFan's right. That's how I flew for the first time. I believed I could do it, and I could do it.

      I tried running on all fours last night, and I definitely found I could go faster.

      Wherever you're going, just imagine you're already there. Or, alternatively, if you are racing, imagine the person behind you getting cramps and giving up or something.

      I love DEILD! SP is pwnage!

      Do you want to RUN really fast or just go fast? I like to take huge leaps like the hulk in the movie. It is really fun jumping neighborhoods or a county lol.

      try warping and tunneling

      this is kinda hard to explain, i often find my self in the dimension people call the void, to get to the fringe of the void, i must run really fast...

      what i do is, stare as far off into the distance i possibly can, and choice a point while running and somehow bend and warp things so that i am running in a tunnel type thing, it works for me anyways

      Whenever the army chased me i always ran so freaking slow but so did they yeay

      tehn farowhile i ran on all fours super fast but not fast enough

      then i worked out if i flew upwards they cant follow hehe

      and then i learned how to fly so fast walls are practicaly non-existant

      although saying that theyl'e probably become more solid, listen out for "whizz , thud ..... "aaah **********""

      I've run pretty fast by turning into a creature which can run fast. In my case that was a duckbill dinosaur. Maybe turning into the roadrunner might work too?

      It's not strictly running, but in LDs I can skate very fast over any terrain, even if it doesn't have ice on it. Dream skating doesn't involve as much leg movement as walking or running.

      You could create a swift horse to carry you.

      Maybe it's more important to will yourself to move quickly, rather than moving your legs and assuming you will move quickly. But other than the joy of speed, is there much point in being fast in your LDs?

      Maybe create a fast button on your shoes and press it. You can do anything as long as you can convince your mind that it can happen.
