      Dream Flying

      Well ive been having trouble flying in dreams, its not that i cant do it, its having trouble staying airborn, ive done many different things to keep myself flying and no luck, i always seem to start falling and almost skipping alond the ground like when you skip a rock across water, any help?

      adding on to Buddah's comment, heres my method

      The more you flex your left ankle, the higher you go. Moving your left leg controls direction and speed(the more you move your leg in a direction the faster you will go) and then you just turn by tilting and turning
      (it will feel natural to turn like this)

      lol Matrix moment? Reminds me that I still want to jump skyscrapers

      Anyway with that said, try telling yourself in the dream "gravity doesn't exist!". Works for me in a surprising way

      I get that problem too, and have had good success with flying in a standing position instead of stretched out like Superman. In theory the standing position flight should work for everyone.

      yumster i tried a variation of your method last week after reading about something like it, but it didnt seem to help much and @The Cusp, ive always tried to fly just standing, like in heroes.

      You could try to focus more on your point of view, and less on your body. Focus on the sensations of flying, and the movement. Don't worry too much on the mechanics of it, or what your body is doing.

      Hmmm... That's a thought that would have worked for sure. Does it at least grant you a decent amount of flight control when you can manage to stay airbourne?

      Could it be we just run out of gas while lucid flying? Because that's a very common problem. Nah, that can't be true, because I have overcome it on several occasions. Try increasing your speed.
