this is my take on the subject of falling from flying:

It doesnt matter! Youre dreaming, so nothing can happen! In fact, if you want to get over your fears, then try the following:

1. fly up realy high, then stop releasing energy so you fall back to "earth" and crash into the ground. when you get up and brush yourself off, you will relize its not a big deal!

2. or you could fly up high and piledrive yourself into the ground at full speed ^^ :D woo siiw grin

enjoy! wink

The only problem is that some people wake up when they are about get get hurt or would get hurt in RL.

So flying into the ground, or letting yourself hit the ground could cause someone to wake up from their LD.

But if "dream pain" doesn't do anything to your LDs, then sure, this is a good method.

Yes, that's the problem.
If u flew high and fell then hit the ground, you would probably wake up but you wouldn't feel anything

Thanks for the tips. I do find however that i am prone to waking up when something happens that would hurt IRL. i know that when i fall even a small distance, like from the height of a house to the ground, it makes my lucidity drop and the dream seem further away and less real as i have to work to stay asleep.
I think its right about the confidence thing. Taking off is easy i find, i do it all the time. Its easier than walking. But im going to have to train myself to be able to go high. its amazing the kinds of things you have to do to control a lucid dream. trying to explain how you do things to someone who has never been lucid before is impossible. If anyone has trouble taking off try this: i click my fingers and expect to be hovering a few inches above the ground. its much easier to start flying when you're not standing on the ground anymore. The only time i ever click my fingers in a lucid dream is if i want to fly so this gets programmed into your sub concious. Just like the only time i ever rub my hands together is to increase lucidity or stop myself waking up. conjuring is still quite difficult though, i can sometimes do it but sometimes it doesnt work. But changing my dream scene... wow that's hard. teleporting sometimes works (the cube way) but more often than no the feeling of it wakes me up or throws me out of lucidity. neutral And im still trying to change my appearance, whether its turning into a cat, or changing my t-shirt into a shirt and tie, i still cant do it.
does anyone else have problems with achieving certain things?

Now, changing appearance or spawning things is a lot more difficult than simple flying. Creating things and changing my appearance is something I haven't yet mastered. So I couldn't give you any advice, sorry. sadblauw

This problem of yours reminds me of Douglas Adam's commentary on flying, in hhgg. You should read it here: http://www.extremelysmart.com/humor/howtofly.php

I disagree with that. I find it easier to takeoff from the ground :D

Yes. although I can teleport, I never end up in the place I want to go. Oh, and running realy fast, like at super-sonic speed, is something Ive never succesfully done. And transforming my self is also something I cant do...YET.

But as for conjuring and changing my dreamscape at will, Ive done those things. In fact, for a list of all the things Ive done, just check my signature right down below

I'm not necessarily afraid of falling, but about 90% of the times I fly high I get that feeling in my stomach and I hate it! cry I just fly and it happens, I don't have to fall or fear a fall for it to come, it just comes neutral

Look, you don't have to do different methods for flying.
YOU CANNOT FLY BECAUSE IN YOUR DREAM YOU WONDER:''Can I fly?''
I never thought about it.I never wondered it.I just fly and it works.
You can't jump off a building and say '' OMG, i'm gonna die!''.you sure will.
I never wondered if i can fly, thought everyone can do it.Actually that's true.

A lot of people can't transform.You must be confident and KNOW you will do it.
