Flying in dreams is pretty common even in non-lucid dreams. Lots of people relish in the feeling of freedom and weightlessness that you get when you fly in a dream and can’t experience anywhere else except in a rocket ship! If you want to fly in your dreams, there are a few specific things you need to do to exert this sort of dream control. Here’s what you need to know.

Essentials for Dream Control

Dream control is essentially believing in and understanding that you can do whatever you want in your dreams. Of course, the first step is to become lucid. After that, you’ll need to understand that you can do whatever you want in your dreams. Believing and imagining what you want to happen in your dreams, as well as thinking about specific people, places, and things you want to experience in your dreams as you’re falling asleep, are great ways to start gaining control over your lucid dreams.

Steps for Flying in Your Dreams

Many times, you can fly in your dreams by becoming lucid during a flying dream. Since flying is an impossibility in real life, when you find yourself flying in a dream, it’s a great time to do a reality check. Becoming lucid during a flying dream often allows you to simply take control of how and where you fly in that dream.

If you become lucid in a dream where you aren’t already flying, you can start telling yourself a story involving flying. Storytelling and visualization are great ways to start moving toward actually flying. As you’re telling yourself a story, your dream will most likely start to follow after the story that’s found in your mind.

As you’re dreaming, you can start to fly, as well, by starting to move in that direction. For instance, you can start by jumping just a little ways off the ground, and each time you jump, allow your dream body to get higher and higher. Visualize yourself becoming lighter and lighter as you go, and eventually you can start to become weightless and fly.

Another option is to visualize that you have wings. Then it would just make sense that you can fly. This is a good technique to use as you’re falling asleep. Picture that you have wings as you’re falling to sleep, and you’ll be more likely to have them – and be able to use them! – in your dreams. Other options for this technique include visualizing that you have a jetpack or a flying bike, or you can picture yourself jumping off of the Empire State Building or a diving board in the sky.

Visualization as you’re falling asleep can be a great option, as well. If your goal is really to fly in your lucid dreams, you can paper your ceiling with posters and photos of flying. If you’re stimulated by the written word, you might also want to put up some quotes about flying. Since your dreams tend to mimic what you see when you’re awake, this can help you be more likely to fly in your dreams.

Finally, using MILD, or mnemonics, can help you increase your odds of flying during a dream. Come up with a phrase you can tell yourself as you’re falling asleep, such as “I will fly in my dream tonight.” Say it over and over to yourself as you’re falling asleep. This sets your intentions toward flying in your dreams, and intentions can make all the difference when it comes to flying and doing just about anything else in your dreams.
