  • Bring in happy things to your dreams.
  • If you love to go swimming, or you just love the water, imagine a river or swimming pool, it may appear in front of you! If you're already at one of these areas, great! You're at a good start! Be sure to have good confidence. Go underwater for a few minutes. You should be able to breathe underwater! Clear water usually works best.
  • Another method is imagining your favorite Video Game characters (such as Link, Samus, Aran, Sonic the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog, Princess Zelda, Waluigi, etc) to appear in the dream to assist you. You don't have to do this with superheroes, though. Imagining your mother or Chuck Norris giving the hideous apparition a solid thrashing can work just as well, if you so please.
  • If you are at an area where you can do flips, a trampoline, for example, doing flips will be much easier for you since you are in a dream! There seems to be less gravity in dreams in many circumstances! You can even fly if you jump high or off a tall building.


  • Be careful when jumping off high buildings, if you fall and crash to the ground, it most likely won't hurt but you could wake up with a strange feeling. Be sure to have confidence in a dream when jumping or flying, this will increase your chances of having a good outcome when coming down to the ground.
