1) Flying too soon

You must walk before you fly, take a second and explore the dream world before you try to fly. Do some of the dream prolongation techniques and make the dream more vivid.

2) Flying too fast

Flying is a tricky thing, start slow and try not to go over the limits of what you are comfortable with.

3) Flying too high

Flying too high might make you loose lucidity because you can no longer see the ground which is an important reference point.

4) Focusing on gravity and fear

Focus on where you want to go, not where you might fall. Your dream is a manifestation of your thoughts, so what you think is what you get. This holds true for real life too!

4) Getting Frustrated

Don’t expect to learn to do this overnight. Some learn slow and some learn fast, but the fact is that

everyone can learn. Understand that frustration caused by a failed flying attempt just lengthens your learning curve.

5) Not understanding the placebo effect

There is no spoon, if you believe you can fly you will. This is the most important rule in lucid dreaming.

6) Assuming that you can fly trough walls

7) Expecting a 7th mistake? Well I don’t know one, 7 just sounds better that 6.

  2. When I was a teenager I was able to learn to use sleep paralysis as a gateway to lucid dreams and out of body experiences. When I was a kid sleep paralysis was absolutely terrifying because I didn’t understand what it was. I thought I was some sort of freak and was afraid to approach adults about my experiences. But as I grew older I started going to the library to research the topic and realized that it was related to other strange, spontaneous phenomena, namely out of body experience and lucid dreaming, that I was experiencing. I soon learned to embrace these skills as gifts rather than abnormalities and have even learned to have OBEs and lucid dreams at will. As I grew into an adult, other concerns took over and I’d experienced fewer and fewer episodes of SP, OBE, and LD. Now I kinda miss them since I spend a third of my life sleeping, and I feel that a lot of that is going to waste if I cannot harness these abilities.
