Personally, most of the time I either 'float' along air currents staring at the stars, or I fly facing forward:
A bit like this, minus the bubble:


It is hard to explain the action of flying... you just DO it.
I often propel myself through a window using the ledge, feeling a beautiful liquid feeling as I soar through...
However the most bizarre method I have ever used is flying in an armchair... until it broke down and I used a flimsy plastic chair lol.

Bizarrely I found for a long time that I could only 'fly' when 'seated' as if flying an invisible helicopter. I've since become of aware of the Freudian nature of such dreams which from reading fit with my experience! That said I have also had superman style flying experiences though more often than not these day's instead of flying like a 'bird' I will 'say' to the 'dream', take me too that hill top or building and I'll find myself conveyed to and deposited on the same!

I always use swimming to take off, and then most of the times I switch to spreading my arms to glide around. I hadn't thought about a lot of these methods for flying, I'll have to try them next time!

I most often fly in a dream method of swimming. I make movements and legs with my hands - I'm swimming in the air.

If I want to fly in a LD i allways jump through a window in a skyscraper :D No joke! I love the feeling when the glass breaks and you are in the air. If I fly its like having a wingsuit or sth. like that haha

I discovered a unique way to make flying easy for myself 😁

Beforehand, in almost all of my lucid dreams so far, flying has been the first thing to try to just settle into the lucidity of the dream. But I always struggled, because I was stubborn and insisted on using the "do nothing" technique; unfortunately, my mind would always let the idea of gravity sneak back in and I would be falling after only raising myself a few feet in the air.

The last time I LD'ed, again gravity was keeping me down. Im not sure what gave me the idea but this time, I half closed my eyes, so that I could partially see what I was dreaming but also had much more focus on my mind. From there, I simply imagined myself to be very light. I was immediately up and flying, which surprised me so that I opened my eyes wide, at which point I kind of got "stuck" where I was floating, so I narrowed my sight again, felt myself as light as a feather and weeeee, away I went! Full control, zero resistance. What a blast!

Flying speeds and heights?

I am new to lucid dreams but flying has been so easy and natural so far. Has anyone flown really fast or far (like Superman)?

Awesome!
As much as I hate to say it.....
The easiest way to fly for me is to flap my arms and do a superman launch.
When I am totally lucid, I generally use pure willpower with no mechanical motions to fly.

Or do anything else for that matter.
The problem I have noticed is that pure willpower requires intense effort. It's as if the fabric of the dream is resisting you.
Over the years I have got better at it. But it is still effort.

The easiest is to run and jump off of something high and then soar and fly.
It still takes a bit off willpower used as a thrust to keep it going.

Fun to talk with folks that know what I am talking about.

Welcome bacuss! The forum truly is a great place to share ideas and find inspiration for lucid dreaming. Enjoy!

I totally agree, its amazing how difficult it can be just to convince the dream (aka, your mind) that you can fly. But I think its a great practice though! It will help you in general in dream control and understanding.

Happy dreaming!
