well i won't be much help here lol.

When i fly i just do it, i don't have to use commands it's like a natural thing. For example it's like walking, you tell yourself to walk but it's just second nature you know what you want to do and do it with out verbal direction.

When I first learned how to fly in my LD's, I learned how to fly downward (like down the stairs) and swimming (breast stroke). I slowly increased to using my arms as wings (pffffew that was hard), then superman/airplane style, and now I do it automatically. I don't have to do specific rituals or positions to get myself flying now. It's actually my first nature... it seems. It's easier for me to fly than to walk in my LD's... especially if it's a high level LD and is stabilized.

Maybe you could start with basic then increase as your skills increase. That's what I did. Also maybe you can try leaping and leaping as if you're on the moon until you really LEAAAAAP that you're out of the orbit.... therefore you fly. wink Experiment, experiment, experiment! Remember, you're not limited to the actual way of flying. ^^

For me I fly superman style pretty much like to says on ld4all site. For me though flying is second nature, I don't really have to think about it to do it but it is always a thrill

You mean in an LD? I'd guess so, but I've never flown either (though not from lack of trying).

Why does everyone fly? Well: because it's fun wink5.

Flying in a dream sometimes makes you feel sooooooooo free. I'd say you're definitely missing something smile
Also, for me, flying always result in (very) strong rollercoaster feelings, so I guess they resemble the feelings you might get if you do the same flying movements irl..

Biff, many ppl cant fly in dreams or in lucid dreams!
So dont worry!
And there is a lot of difference at the talent ppl have how well they can fly in dreams, even when they can.

Wow, Flying is always the thing I want to do first. It took me a good few years of practicing flying in ND's and LD's but now I'm really good at it, I also have super powers in my LD's.

If you're having problems flying once lucid there's alot of things that can help. If you can't just will yourself to fly, imagine that you have rockets on your feet propelling you upwards. Or imagine you have superpowers and go superman style. When I fly I can usually just will myself to. Its not just flying, its kind of gliding upwards if you can get it, anyways I highly recomend it!

Flying is my.... nature?

I am always able to fly.. sometimes though I face the obstacles like falling back or something, but it usually shows me something's wrong irl that need to be fixed before I can become free again.

Anyways, the ability to fly is strongly linked to the ability to use associations w/ feelings. Just flying doesn't do a good job.. you just have to learn how to mmm be one with it.. feeling it as if it's part of your nerve. Hard to explain. Hehe

YOu could try imagining invisible floor that lifts you, etc. Slowly turning to the advanced techniques.. like invisible floor, into invisible water (swimming.. that was one of my first techniques of flying tounge2... not very efficent.. but hey.. it gets you floating lol)... then... fly like a superman.... etc. etc. Just slowly promoting your techniques as you get better. That's what I did. smile now I don't have to do anything but to fly. I don't have to position myself to fly. I just... fly. haha. :D

Practice makes perfect smile

Hi biff ! Welcome to the forum !
I was flying very badly one year ago. Now I can fly higher and faster. If you can't fly, don't try to make efforts, use another technique instead : summon a flying engine, use rockets, balloons, flying carpets, change your position (fly on the back), feel lighter, etc.

I find I fly in regular dreams too, or float at least. I can never recall myself walking, just floating.
