I've had flying dreams a lot over the course of my lifetime, but lately I've been having to navigate low altitudes and obstacles like high tension wires and telephone lines that seem to be everywhere. It requires a bit of a slower navigation than usual.

I always love the dreams where I'm low altitude but enjoying a beautiful and nature oriented landscape. Very relaxing.

As far as liftoff techniques go, ours have a lot in common...but sometimes I can't even get off the ground for more than a few feet and other times it like something out of the Greatest American Hero.



Oh well, I hope to get the hang of it one day....I think it's awesome cool that you can fly in your dream whenever you desire. Lucky duck!

I do. Sometimes I fly in my dreams also.
it only takes a lift feeling inside my heart for me to fly. I just feel weightless inside me and I start to lift, the more i believe in it the higher i can fly.. it's about an heart control feeling .. to go up or down...

I have flown throughout my dream life and the best instance of this was where I transformed into a Dragon and took to the air.... A VERY extremely empowering experience and something I use in the most extreme of nightmares. The other not so empowering as transformation but quite thrilling is being in a world where it is the norm to fly with the aid of a small suit but also the norm are those that didn't need the suit of which I was one, it was a natural attribute and the buzz in this case was the speed you could reach... excitement! you have no idea... Run and simply jump and away you go :-) some of my best dreams involve flying...

If they jump off of a high place, anybody can fly. The real question is can you land safely?

Wow Mike, not only do you fly but you have a huge range of superpowers! Breathing underwater, superspeed and strength and flight.

And you have mentioned that other people in your dreams notice and are impressed by your ability. That also seems unusual compared with the other replies. Your dreams sound amazingly exciting!

I fly in dreams quite often. A trimmed down version of the flying I do when awake (hang gliding). Literal hand gliding.

No hang glider. I use my hands to provide lift on a windy day. Like "flying" your hand outside a car window. On a hill, set hands just so. Off I go!


Hi Phage. I guess the RL waking experience of hang gliding gives you a familiar action to start with then? Is it something you can choose to do at any time?

The way you described swimming through the air is exactly how I remember it and as a kid I dreamt that often ! It felt wonderful of course. That made me chuckle some and made my day.
Some of my recurring dreams are very strange indeed. Dreams are magical always. Terrifying sometimes. But what really fascinates me is recurring dreams.
Where do they come from , and what do they mean and does anybody truly know?
Perhaps we really do make it all up as we go along.

Your recurring dreams are strange? If they are recurring are you aware at the time of dreaming that you have been in that situation before? Do you remember it from the previous time(s)? Does that allow you to control the situation, knowing there is a familiar outcome?

If terrifying, as you said they sometimes are, does the familiarity and the knowledge that you got out of the terrifying situation the previous times make you less terrified, or more able to deal with the situation?

I agree it is fascinating that our brains, which are gooey lumps of organic matter, can come up with this stuff!

Yes, as soon as the dream begins I realize I have been there before as the long black ships are low on the horizon and the sky is streaking with shooting stars. The feeling that I have is awe and wonder.
Some fear although, it is more akin to excitement as I watch the final show.

This has way better effects than the best Dr Who shows anywhere and I have really not much control at all but a feeling that I am controlling it at the same time.

I do not really fly in this dream just stand there looking up and it is always in the same location where I grew up. I find it rather mind blowing to even think about sometimes.

Keep in mind that this dream first occurred 35 years ago and still it returns sometimes and it is quite the show, so this may someday even come to pass.

Either that or I am very creative

Yes, I began having flying dreams as a child where I would have to run to get off the ground and once in the air continue to jog to stay afloat, the faster I went the higher I'd go and I'd slow down to come back to the ground. As an adult I can begin to fly at will in a Superman type position but only for a few miles before I need to come back down.

I just learned this isn't common. I thought everyone had dreams of flying and knew they were sleeping. After having another flying dream where I was trying to teach others how to fly I got on Google to see what that was all about and it led me here.

I consciously flew during a dream for the first time in my life two nights ago. I floated above my body in the same room I was sleeping in, yet it was fully lit, and seemed to be a different time. I had the weirdest feeling in my chest, like prolonged roller coaster feeling. As soon as I became aware, gained lucidity, I snapped out of it. (not sure if I awoke or what happened, but I do know the awesome dream ended).

I can never escape in my dreams, when I find myself in the midst of dreamscape peril, my world turns to glue, and my voice, mute.

What a trip, an absolute contrast in dream experience. I wonder if that contrast reflects in waking life?

Ever had the urge to run really fast? Like when you get the runners fury in real life, but in your dream you turn into a four legged thing and just chew the ground. I have vivid dreams sometimes of running where I just get really into it and end up using my arms and legs like a wild animal. Like I cant go fast enough to scratch that itch. It feels like what the "quickening" would be like from the Highlander movies....I usually kick my wifes ass in bed when I have these dreams. She then wakes me up and I go to eat cookies and milk in the kitchen thinking WTF.

I love flying dreams. I used to prep myself as a kid by thinking of peter pan or superman before bed. Never failed when I wanted to fly a little bit. Now it just comes when ever I feel like it. I lucid dream allot.

What a great thread! And here I thought I was terminally unique with my flying dreams. As a child I was a frequent lucid dreamer with constant recurring dreams. I literally would create a world that I could escape to every night. It was kind of like Inception. I even built a huge English Manor estate, complete with stables, in my dream world. To this day I can remember every detail of it, down to the gravel circular driveway.

I also had the ability to fly. But the funniest thing about my ability was that I had to have a "running start" before I could take off. How hysterical is that? I also used my horses to fly. Sometimes they were a Pegasus but not always. I pretty much always fly in my dreams and I'm aware that I can. I'm also aware that I'm dreaming so if I want to "travel" I just change the scenery like the TV channel.

Most of my recurring dreams were probably a means of escaping. I did also have a recurring nightmare about wolves with red glowing eyes that haunts me to this day.

I absolutely LOVE dreaming. It's like a virtual playground!!

I could fly in my dreams up until my early 20's...then I stopped dreaming of flying. I actually had to flap my arms to rise...and in my dream, I could physically feel the air lift me up as I flapped like a bird to catch the air......cool....though I rarely flew higher than a bird would fly.....

Yep, I've been a lucid dreamer and "OOBE"er for a long time. I can fly, and much more. If you are having trouble staying afloat, it means you doubt your abilities. The more you realize your potential, the less your demons will weigh you down. Face them, walk right passed them, and leap from world to world.

So sick, sounds like "Super Mario galaxy",

Dreams are such an epic world.

I'm glad I'm finally learning to fly, I don't know how the heck you all have been doing it this whole time.

Im still able to do this. It must be when I realize its a dream. Started when I was young and tried to swim thru the air like it was water. It worked. So I moved into the run, jump and swim. Success. It aint easy. Some times feeli g like you are heavy and fall right down. Lucid dreaming surely is an adventure if not a life away from real life. Goose bumps reading thru these comments as I can relate to many. Love it. Cant wait to go to bed tonight lol
Im in my 30s now by the way.

Ive been chased by a person with a knife in a dream. So I stopped running, turned to it and said "you cant hurt me". So I got stabbed but instead of waking up it made me feel no pain and it disappeared witch followed by me celebrating by taking to the skies.
Your right about having no doubts. Liberating id say.

I have learned to fly in dreams since childhood and most often it was because of escaping situations and most of my dreams seem to be more or less fighting, hiding, escaping of different beings. giants, demons, angels aliens but also of human beings.

I have learned various ways to fly but common feature is that i have to use large amount of focus and energy to disable gravitation field so to say, then the flying to certain direction needs large amount of focus & energy, sometimes it feels easier more effortless, even as very natural movement, those times i can fly really fast and most cases that i can remember were epic scale battles, against giants and all sort of demons then the flying comes as natural movement.

Quite often i do different training methods, couple nights ago for example i did air pull-ups and after few i could levitate and continued to do different martial arts movement while levitating, that is fun but not when i lose the control and start spinning really fast and cannot control it, sometimes i enjoy bout running really fast and when i need i can leap over houses and what not, run walls etc.

Also in dreams when i fly i realize i am in the dream and somehow i think i can do this in the wake-state too if i would really really want it but of course when i am wake i do not believe it the same way
