Whether you're in control of your dream or not, lucid or dreaming passively, flight is still an amazing phenomenon. Everybody flies differently, and no method is any better or worse than the others.

your wings or your ears to leave the ground. Some may sprout wings,
some may transform into a bird, some may just wave their arms about.
Like A Plane...
spread your arms and go. Lift off, using your feet and arms to steer,
and hands as spoilers. Depending on the level of technology in your
dream, you might also be wearing a jet pack. Some people may need to get
a running start, for others, just jumping may be sufficient.
Like A Fish...
the dream world, air may behave like a fluid, and even when it doesn't,
you can still swim through it. Go ahead and start paddling, there’s no

bad joke; the things I do to try and keep a common theme. Just shake

unnecessary at that.
You can find my experiences with flight in dreams on DreamCollectier.
Have your own way of leaving the
ground (without conventional methods of riding an airplane or hang
gliding)? I’d love to hear about them. Comment away!
