can't fly outdoors?
PostPosted: Mon 27 Feb, 2012  Reply with quote

hello everyone!
i'm finally beginning to get back to LDing, but i have a problem:
i just can't fly when i'm outside. i have no problem when i'm inside, neither i have problems with other powers: i can kill someone by pointing at him and say "die!", i can create an explosion by snipping my fingers, in my last LD i let appear a cactus(not very useful though)...
i tried two methods to fly:
1)jumping: i jumped very high but couldn't fly
2)jump down from somewhere high like my balcon(one time it even hurted overspannen
are there other methods? am i the onlyone with this problem? why? whatsthat help!

Don't let it discourage you, just keep practising and keep an open mindset. If you keep thinking, 'I can't fly when I'm outside', then your attempts of flying will only backfire. Sometimes your mind likes to play with you haha tounge2

Try swimming, that's what worked for me when I first started. Start jumping and then when you get high swim a little and then more and more and eventually you will start to get the hang of it.

Yea swimming pretty much worked for me last night thumbs down I had to do small arm circles to get started levetating (my flight is unfortunately rusty), I gotta work on that though lach1. But bottom line its all in your head believe it without a doubt. Remember doubt is like a double edge sword that could make or break you in Lucid Dreaming

I personally like rocket boots but some people have a hard time imagining them.

Today after a very long time I had a lucid dream. I flied successfully by imagining wind blowing under me and it made me float like a kite (I have flown like that in normal dreams as well. Strong wind seems to be one of my dreamthemes in the long run anyway), after which I just flew wherever I wanted to, using the air currents.
