How to fly: Take Yourself Lightly.
I had a ND once that these red threadworms were eating the soles of my feet. I woke feeling the stinging, that was nothing like circulation being cut off, but whatever it was it faded after a few minutes. Don’t know how to help if it doesn’t just eventually fade for you.
If everyone’s mind is wired differently, then I should think that everyone has their own balance of active senses in dreams, a different degree of connection to waking and dreaming life, and a different way of flying. I can fly in ND’s, so I just followed that way to do it in LD’s: relax into the just-barely-there crackle of static, and just flow along these invisible streams in the dream-air. It’s not very fast, though, and when I’d get caught in a downdraft I’d wake up --until I learned to let the ground become bouncy.
I’ve found it a stronger, more effective suggestion in just having a flying broomstick (carpet, surfboard, or winged sandals could be substituted) on hand. I’m trying to incubate a dream-cloak that can turn into wings or just act like a superhero cape.
