      What's your method of flying?

      So I was wondering what is your method of flying? For me, if just jumping doesn't work then I just repeat "gravity doesn't exist in dreams" and I'm off. I know if something I am witnessing is created in my head (gravity), I can confront the fact that it is non-existent but I have to be lucid first.

      So what do you people do?

      Haven't had the opportunity yet, but I plan on a number of things:

      - Birdsuit
      - Great Eagle
      - Wind
      - Assault Jetpack

      Easy. I run forward, shoot my legs back and my arms forward, then I just barely think of flying and it works. Very simple.

      Well, I've only ever successfully flown once, but what worked was spawning wings out of my back. They ended up disappearing, but I was still able to fly so meh!

      Normally I just jump really hard and let myself drift upwards. It's always a really shocking feeling for me, so I always ease into it a little bit. I'm terrified of heights in waking life but... it's okay in dreams.

      I don't really know. Sometimes I would morph into a hawk, othertimes, I don't even bother.

      luckily ive always found flying easy relative to the challenge of just keeping my mind from sliping away again. normally i just shoot straight up. really fast theres no reason to stop untill you at least see the stars haha. the one danger with this is losing your point of reference when everything gets too small you mind might start to wonder and send you back to normal dreamland.

      Wings for flying are almost pointless unless you've always wanted cool wings. All you have to do is believe that you will fly and shoot your arms forward like Superman. That's what I do, at least. Lol.

      well

      i think there are many ways...
      iam pretty jealous to listen to quiet many of you saying that it is that easy .
      I for myself flew several times...
      the first time i was lying in my bed and started to rise upwards through the walls and stuff until i got 100 - 200 meters in the sky... then i attained full control and flew through the city....
      This flying was more unconscious than conscious....
      My other attempts have been:
      jumping and trying to fly.... didnt work so i started running as fast as possible ^^and it was unbelievable fast...... i jumped while running and flew
      in another lucid dream i tried it also with jumping but this time i just could not really fly i have been "swimming in the air" like a fish in the water...
      pretty cool but not what i wanted ^^
      I like the idea to tell myself that gravity does not exist!
      i think this should work with many people.

      I'm liking all these ideas I've also heard that looking up at the sky helps because your focus is away from the ground and on the sky. So to put it simply, "out of sight, out of mind". I did it once but went all the way into space which I didn't exactly want but I just sky dived down.

      It definetly works for me. I actually yanked that off our Dream Control tutorial and went to the flying section.

      Let's keep this going

      I only just learned how to fly with jets coming out of my feet, way too fast though, I came crashing down from past the moon to the earth in about 3 seconds.

      I actually did try telling myself gravity doesn't exist... I still get pulled downwards. I think it's a schema. Next time I try to fly, I'll try looking skywards

      I once summoned a physics textbook in a dream and crossed out the parts about gravity to let me fly.

      Obviously, I create a force that slightly repels gravity to levitate, then push myself with air, or just control air to fly, or grow wings to fly.
      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

      I just fly. I use no method to trick the mind, I just use intent.

      Just as natural as moving my arm.

      It varies. Sometimes I'll float around in the lotus position, other times I'll move my arms and legs like I'm doing the breast stroke, or I just fly around, unaware of what my body is doing.

      I think, most of the time, I'm flying on my stomach, head first, with my arms loose at my sides, moving to catch the wind.

      Ha, not bad.

      I think in my upcoming lucids, I'm going to try and jump off a building to fly to other buildings. I'm going to need to find a way to get myself on one first though.

      If I WANT to fly, I just jump off a high spot or out a window. Sometimes I'll be running really fast and take-off without even realising it.

      I've only had one lucid dream and I was able to fly but just knowing I was dreaming and could fly. So I just put my hand in the air and jumped up and fly away. Just believing I could do it worked for me, it was awesome.

      That sometimes works for me, but usually I have to work around schemas. Sometimes even when I know I'm dreaming, I tend to treat stuff like it is real and it is pretty annoying at times. That's why I used the Gravity mantra.

      It's so second nature to me now that I rarely think about it, but the actual process involves "toggling" it on like you would in a video game. Controls work nearly the same way.

      Well, checking if I can fly has practically become an indicator of whether I'm dreaming. I imagine that I have huge wings, and then imagine that I start flapping them. I don't remember a time when I haven't seen that I'm hovering above the ground..
