I'm with RANT and TheRiverGoddess.... I'm a flapper.

It's hard work, flapping like a blue-arse fly, until I have enough "lift" to bend my legs and raise them off the ground.

With lots of effort I can gain a few feet, and then it start to get easier. I normally do it to get up onto a high building or ledge, usually when I'm being chased by someone. If I need to fly from A-B, I have to go in a steep ballistic trajectory.. (all my efforts go into getting me up, not pushing me forward!). If I stop flapping I plummet!

It's not elegant but it's got me out of more than a few imaginary scrapes. I seem to remember impressing a few imaginary chicks with it as well. (they go for that sort of thing in my dream world)

Been flying over 35 years, can never get enough of these kind of dreams. Back in 1996 I had dreams of flying in another plain and I would meet my great-great grandmother who stood by an hour glass as tall as she was. She would be dressed in a long dress and high collar with flowers decorated on it. I was not dreaming tho, because there is a difference like someone calling you once you set your head on the pillow and you are off and flying. She was warning me of something in the future. This happened in a span of five months of that year, three times. This place was a plane between the physical world to the spirit world. That same year I moved back to Iowa from Wyoming to be with my folks. Three years later my mother past on, she had cancer. I will remember how time did not matter when she let go of her body to go home, I held her hand. Angles were there, I felt these spirits around me ready to take my mom. I knew she was hugging me before she left and I am sure the angles were comforting me too. 10 minutes passed before I came back to the physical world again. I would not trade this experience for anything. A more of an understanding and reminder that life continues on the other side. Sorry, I did not mean to blurt this out, felt like writing tonight. Yes, I guess I am
Well, matey, must be heading back to me ship to set sail to the unknown again. May ya keep flying in your dreams, just watch out for the gulls, they get nasty when you fly by ruffling their feathers, arr.

It feels like superman. More thrust then flapping wings or gliding.

Flying...oddly enough, that's one thing my dreams try to get me to do, but I don't want to do. I like to fly, like, just above the ground...but every time I start ascending, I flail my arms and legs around trying to get down. Even in my dreams, my fear of heights lives on.

wow really? i found flying in my dreams cured my fear of heights... though that just could be me, im od that way...

In one dream, I was walking down the street leading to my old high school...there was no traffic or anything. Some of my friends start walking with me. Before too long, two transfer trucks start coming at the same time. My friends ran off to the side of the road, but my right leg suddenly got far too heavy to move. With help from my friends, I managed to drag myself off the road at the very last second.

According to one of my friends who is into dream interpretation, that dream was trying to force me to fly by putting me in a situation in which the only way to live was to fly. I kinda foiled its attempt, though...

I suppose I had a flying car dream in one dream. My memory of this dream gets fuzzy so I may have started lucid dreaming. Anyway I was driving down a highway and then I suddenly see those famous blue lights in my rear view mirror. Instead of pulling over, I stepped on the gas and you could say I was flying (on the ground that is). Only problem was that so were the police. Then I'm not sure if I started realizing this was only a dream or what but I suddenly pressed a special button in my car and then my car accelerated and floated up off the highway into the air leaving the police car in hot pursuit confused as to what to do. I got away. I could almost enjoy the look of frustation on the policeman's face when the guy he was chasing just takes off into the air where he can't follow. I believe in one dream the policeman may have detected a speed of 250mph and knew I was out of his league.

I fly ALOT in my dreams. But I am a flapper-variant (its like swimming breast-strokes in the air)
Dont get me wrong its great. However this style of flying for me almost always isnt fast and is hard to gain altitude. I have had flying experiences similar to how birds fly and that is AWESOME.
Not to mention my goal with flying is reaching the cosmos (but usually ends with me flying into someones house which happens to have a beautiful women in it).

I was wondering is there anyone who used to be a flapper but now flys fast, as if they had wings. Any suggestions?

Whenever I fly in my dreams - people are still quite surprised. (Because you know how normally all the crazy # that goes on in your dreams just seems normal.) But I still get the feeling, and it stays with me after I've woken up, that I've finally managed to use my powers of levitation - and how easy it is! It leaves me with this strong sense that there are those in real life who can do it.

My dream floating is like floating in water...

What's strange is that I'll feel differently in one part of a dream than I will at some other point in the same dream...what I mean to say is that in one part of the dream, I'll be floating around effortlessly...yet when I land at some point, I'll feel like if I try to fly again, I'll fall flat on my face. Then later on, I'll feel like I can fly again.

If someone is afraid of heights I know of a dream that could really scare them. Just imagine being able to float up higher and higher. The buildings and houses start looking smaller and smaller as you float up. Soon you can only see dots where the buildings were at. Then you can only make out general areas such as fields or cities. As you continue to climb you may not even be able to see clouds anymore. If you keep going you can see stars. All of a sudden, your ability to levitate disappears and you start falling from outer space back to Earth. I can imagine that your skin would get pretty hot after a little while ignoring the fact that the lack of air doesn't seem to phase you. This would be a great time to learn how to fly unless you want to crash and burn.

I once saw my younger brother flying for real.
His first time down the intermediate ski slope he picked up too much speed and went airborne and was literally flying through the air. It was funny to see him flapping his hand and feet. Well maybe it wasn't flapping but flailing.

The mind has no intrinsic filter for being aware of perceiving reality, or not.
I too experienced feelings after some dreams of flying that if I could find
where the dream flight happened, in reality, I might be able to do the same
awake. Run along the shaded tree lined street at dusk, and somehow WILL
leaving the ground, making jumps longer and longer, becoming less bound
to the Earth, until suddenly free at last to soar, perhaps never to return to the
heavy burden of weight. But later when reason prevails the dreamland, that
fantasy of the mind, recedes into forgetfulness. To be replaced by.. what?
Reality? Sometimes in the quiet I still wonder what really is REALITY.

I have the same kinda dreams. For me it feels like im swimming but im pushing on air... But then theres other times that im flying like neo from matrix... How often do you have them. I went 6 to 7 months of the same kinda dream but in different location night after not and not skipping a beat.

The one time I can recall flying in a dream, it felt more like feebly pretending to fly than like actually flying. Throughout the dream, visualizing different colors in the lower-right corner of my line of sight allowed me to use supernatural powers; I think visualizing green made me fly. I don't remember actually moving through the air so much as half-believing that I was flying and ending up where I wanted to be, only a few yards away.

Oh yeah.....those dreams are the best...I have had many of these dreams. Strangely enough they come in periods, I ccan have flying dreams every night for a week and than they stop for a few months before I have them again.

Most of the time there are other people in my dream but I am the only one who can fly and it gives me the feel I am kind of special. When I wake up I feel relaxed and had a good nights rest.

I fly by thought...the will to go somewhere in my dream will make it happen. But it is always in a dream landscape....not in a real world.

Good stuff and thread s&f !!

can walking in the air be classed as flying?.
i always dream that i can just step onto air steps that know one else can see or feel ...
i take as many steps up into the air as i want depending on how high i want to go and then can walk anywhere above the ground..
i get this in my dreams all the time and it just feels so natural just to do it...

As soon as I start having a lucid dream, I decide to fly. I've flown many times in OBEs, and I think lucid dreaming is basically an OBE that is masked by dream imagery.

I have managed to fly in a controlled dream OOBE and
it was awesome it does give the impression of feeling dizzy

i did lose hold of the OOBE in the end and i can remember
being very dizzy and that falling feeling then i awoke exhilarated.

being able to take control of your dream is one of life's true
luxuries but alas it is hard to do i can only do it ever so often
but the pay off is you can go/do whatever you feel like.

the possibilities are endless.i only wish i could improve my
skill to achieve getting on the astral plane.many a time i
have been so close only to lose grip.

the trick is to realise you are dreaming and take control
the best times i find are if you wake up in the morning
and manage to go back to sleep and gain REM sleep.

My flying experiences all seem to start with some form of propelling event. One that I remember from my childhood was when I was climbing on a tall "Daniel Boone " fort wall and one of the upright logs fell and as I fell with it I just took flight. Another happened as I left a large mogul while snow skiing and took flight. I really had more concern about getting down than anything else, although I was enjoying it emmencly. (sp?)
What I found most bizzar is that when I finally had the opportunity to sky dive, I felt the EXACT sensations as my dreams. How did I already know that feeling? Anyone else feel that way?

Around 30 years ago, I worked a job with double shifts most days of the week. Had three kids at home at that time and needed the money. Between work and home, not much sleep. When I did sleep any length of time, I'd have weird dreams, in color.

Most of them involved leaping off a cliff. Makes a guy wonder about dreams and real life. Anyway, I'd wake up and be mad at myself for ruining sleep time. Falling woke me up.

I don't know how I did it but I found myself turning into Gumby when falling and then just springing back up after hitting the ground, and staying asleep.

After this happened several times, I would pull myself up, as Gumby, and fly/glide through the landscape. Sometimes over water, sometimes through a city, or over open land. Never figured that part out about why landscape changed, but the cliff stayed fairly well the same.

I fly in dreams maybe one time a year now, sometimes in color.
