Thanks for that Ashley, your the second poster to mention stress and it makes sense.
Also i liked the bit about failing misserably. Stress seems unavoidable these days, i
may have to look toward hangliding.

Had developed a severe case of depression, that's what I was taking Prozac for. The vivid dreams were a rather delightful side-effect.

I don't know what being of Irish descent has to do with it but I have Irish blood through my mothers side and I too have always had flying dreams both when I was younger and about a year ago. I have noticed most people who have them always describe the same way of having to fly. It's usually not like Superman but more like levitating. I have to concentrate to do it. I've notice through the years it seems like it has gotten easier.

I have wondered if this isn't linked to Out of Bodies experiences because when I was around 12 I caught myself returning to my body one morning. I was having a dream that I was falling and I had the urgency to try and wake myself due to the fear of hitting the ground. I fought myself to awaken and when I opened my eyes I remember floating down and appeared to float through the roof of my house. I opened my eyes (not sure how when I wasn't even in my body) only to see the ceiling right at my nose. I started to float down and away from it. I reentered my body followed by an intense tingling all over. Something you can't forget. I laid there for a bit just staring up at the ceiling wondering what just happened.
I did it again years later. My alarm clock went off and I got up 3 times trying to cut it off only realizing that I was still in bed all three times. I was hitting the clock and couldn't get it to switch off. Then I would turn and realize I was still in bed. I would wake up again ,or so I thought, only to do it again. Each time seemed so real that when I actually did get up I wasn't sure or not if I was still dreaming until I could turn the clock off.

There is so much we can't explain.

you still dream about flying as you get older.
I find it funny I fly far to much or float.
the dream can be just a normal dream
and for no reason I will fly or float.
no one noticed in the dream.

I always find myself talking about having dreams about flying ith my friends, and yes, that age seems about right for all of them

I, unfortunately, have never once had a dream in which I flew, so I cant tell you my personal story. I am defective.

Hey there Schyler, 20,000 miles?
do you have an in-built odometer?

Seattle to Cairo and return. There's a ten hour time difference. Twelve hours and you're half way around the world. The world is about 24,000 miles around, therefore a ballpark estimate of how far I traveled is approximately 20,000 miles. No odometer required, just a little common sense. And BTW, epsnding that much time on an airplane is not a pleasant experience.

I just got back into lucid dreaming recently and I had my first dreams where I was flying, and I'm going on 23.

I can't just "will" myself to fly, and do it, in my dreams, though. I have to imagine some technique that my mind/"body" sensations will respond to.

The technique I've had the most success with is imagining a kind of strap/belt that runs around my waist and then between my legs, and I "pull" on the strap on my left or right thigh to accelerate upwards with a slight curve in that direction. Or I'll pull both of them simultaneously to go straight up, and how fast depends on how hard I pull. I've also imagined energy coming down from between my legs like a rocket booster, but that wasn't as effective and it seemed like I had to exert more trying to get that to work for me.

I'm convinced it's really "all in your head," but just knowing that doesn't help you to fly in your dreams so much, in my experience. But I'm sure there are endless techniques if it doesn't already come naturally, and you don't even have to think about it.

What I'm working on is trying to fly in dreams over areas I know geographically, and have my subconscious fill in the geography automatically and accurately in my dreams without me having to pay attention. That's a tricky business for me. Also just trying to have as much of my rational thinking and memory available to me as when I'm awake, that seems the hardest part. Even when I'm aware that I'm dreaming, and can control it, it seems like I always end up doing irrational, surreal dream-like things anyway and not thinking twice about it. Then I wake up and think, "What on Earth was I thinking?"

Maybe I just wasn't on Earth, and that's the problem...

Recently over drinks with freinds the subject of dreams and then flying dreams arose, out of the six of us two had
experienced flying dreams myself and my mates girlfriend.

The similarities were many, the ones i recall are;
1, the dreams were extremely vivid.
2, the dreams differed slightly each time.
3, we never ventured far from home.
4, the flying part seemed natural.
5, a very relaxing and enjoyable feel.
6, they ceased around the age of 11.
The only other similarity between us is our black-Irish heritage.
So id like to know have you had similar dreams?
Were you an adult, if so why cant i?

If you are flying in dreams you are in a place of spiritual enlightment. You can beat anything that is thrown at you in life.

Children experience this due to the development they are undertaking. If you are an adult and continue to fly you have untapped physic powers and can do things in life. Everyone can fly as everyone has physic powers but fail to realize the potential they hold. Things such as mind altering substances will effect the way you dream and ability you hold.
The further you fly the more power you hold in the area you fly.

Race or religion does not matter.

All people can fly even as an adult but they must be aware of this in the dream.

I fly often in my dreams and had one of flying to the edge of space to see the curbiture of earth itself.

If my flying dreams mean I have untapped psychic potential, please tell me how to tap into it. I may be able to overcome all obstacles, but right now, I'm 41, never been married, no girlfriend, broke, no job, and had to move back in with my parents. I ain't exactly overcomin' right now.

enlighten me.

I will enlighten you! Keep away from any substance which effects your ability in life.

I'm in almost the same situation as you but live alone. These things we deal with in life test the quality of the person.

Every night before sleep, give yourself 10mins of thinking nothing. Clear your head of all problems before you! Concentrate on just positive thoughts through flight. Imagine you are flying over your house or flying to assist someone in need. Keep this up for a couple of weeks and then when you are dreaming of any situation, remind yourself you can fly to a destination. You might be in danger in the dream so you want to escape or just fly to get from A to B. Start by kicking your legs like you are swimming, this will only be required when you commence fight. While in flight, look at your surroundings and move to your destination.

When awake and out in public, look closely at peoples expressions when they talk to you or are talking to others. Look at the emotions in the face and tone of voice, you will soon know what mood they are in.

Read your Astrology star sign in the paper and others people Astrology that you know and open yourself up to the concept of seeing the unseen.

I hope this helps.

I used to fly when I was a child in an altered state of consciousness. I was not asleep...kind of like day dreaming but in my memory I remember that I flew for real. I remember standing at the top of a long sidewalk on a hill and floating down to the bottom without touching the sidewalk. I also flew over the neightborhood and saw my older brother smoking with is pals at the baseball field. When he came home for dinner I looked in his jacket pocket and sure enough...he had the pack of ciggs and matches I saw in my "day dream."

Thanks for that, Archangelelijah. You seem to be a very kind and spiritual person. I will try to do what you suggest. However, I don't believe much what the newspaper horoscopes say. Way too generic. But I do believe there is something to astrology.

I never dreamed I could fly. I always dreamed that I could breathe underwater. Still do sometimes.

If you can't fly anymore in your dreams perhaps you should look into learning how to lucid dream, that way if you have a lucid dream it will give you the opportunity to work on it. I fly all the time in both normal and lucid dreams.

I've had one where i ran, ran, and ran, and have my hands out and have wings that get caught up with the wing.
The i flew similar to the Super Mario 64 flying.
Go down and shoot up

I also had one dream where i was on a mile high foot thick piece of earth and fell down to earth, i fell and fell and fell and i hit the floor and i woke up feeling like someone slapped my forehead and i had this whole body feeling of falling

6, they ceased around the age of 11.

Well, in my opinion, as soon as you are raised in modern sociery you develop alot of postnatal emotions, notions and attachments to worldly matters. Each attachment will bring your level down and destroy your inborn quality.

My son recently started school, very quickly his spiritual powers decreased because of the bad influences from modern society and other kids..

To get the true picture of how this process works I recommend you to read the book Zhuan Falun which deals with supernormal powers, how to be a good and natural person, your third eye etc etc:

/Zhen-Shan-Ren(Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance) is good, Falun Dafa is good.

Don't have enough posts to private message yet, so this is in response to your pm. Thank you for the kind words. I really needed that! I have already downloaded that book, but haven't read it yet.

Even though I'm down, I'm not out. I have gained insight that I might not have otherwise gained.

Happy holidays and many good thoughts your way, Gaussq.

My boyfriend and I were talking about this recently. We both had dreams of flying when we were younger and most of the time it would only be like a foot above the ground and more like levitating. You had to concentrate to do it and kind of have your arms at a 45 degree angle to get yourself up off the ground. We thought what if the reason we did it when we were younger was because it's a normal thing you can do before you make it to this life, and we're just remembering it in our dreams...

i still to this day have lucid dreams, 27 years old. Had them as a kid and recently started having them again. But I found that I usually have them by request. I consider myself a Christian because i follow the way of Jesus the Christ. However I feel that most sects of chrstianity are limiting in its true ability.
What I mean by having them by request is literal. I learned from a child that the bible is accurate when it says I can do all things through christ who gives me strength. Along with lucid dreams as a child I used to always have night terrors. I made it an effort to pray every night before bed that I would not have night terrors and only have enjoyable, or as they say "sweet" dreams. And it always worked for me. Through prayer meditation and intent. If ever I go to bed now If happen to be sober enough to remeber to pray, I always pray for a lucid dream, and everytime I get to enjoy one that night. So give that a try, if you pray, pray for it. If you're self sustained, I guess you can sorta will yourself to have one. Right before you sleep, acknowledge what you want, think, or meditate on it for a few minutes, and i'm sure it will happen.
