If you are low on health and there are no hearts or beds nearby to regain it, look our for seats or tree stumps. If you sit down on these, your hearts quickly recover.
Play the Skyward Sword theme music backwards and you will find that it is Zelda's Lullaby from Ocarina of Time!
The second half of the video below will show you the reversed theme:
Warning: MAJOR Spoilers Ahead
The Thunder Dragon's Lightning Road is a mini-game in Skyward Sword and a way to replay the boss battles and silent realms. I'll be mostly focusing on the boss fights though. You can play it once you revisit the dragon after saving him.
Boss Battles is simple, but it certainly isn't easy. You'll fight eleven bosses in a row (all twelve if you are playing Hero Mode), though you can always quit after defeating a boss. You won't be able to heal yourself at all. The only items you'll be able to use are the items you had when you fought the boss the first time and your shield. There really aren't that much tricks you can use, so just be sure to use your shield and block a lot! One thing I do know though, is that you can jump on the head of the Imprisoned by using the wind to get on a higher level, so that should at least make that fight easier.
Lanayru will give you 50 Rupees when you are able to beat the record time and each time you defeat a boss he will offer you a reward if you quit. You'll have to quit if you want the reward he offers! (But don't worry, you can always replay the mini-game if you want them all.) He offers the following rewards:
After beating boss 1: 20 Rupees
After beating boss 2: Small Treasure
After beating boss 3: 100 Rupees
After beating boss 4: Piece of Heart
After beating boss 5: 300 Rupees
After beating boss 6: Rare Treasure
After beating boss 7: 500 Rupees
After beating boss 8: Hylian Shield
After beating boss 9: 2000 Rupees
After beating boss 10: 3 Rare Treasures
After beating boss 11: Rupees
After beating boss 12: 9900 Rupees
Be sure to pick up the Hylian shield and the Heart Piece!
Now the silent realm is really difficult, so I haven't really bothered with it, but I'm sure there are some shortcuts, so search for some videos on YouTube if you're going to try it. You have to find all tears in the silent realm you chose, and your reward will depend on the amount of minutes it took you to find them. This are the rewards:
5 Rupees for a bad time, 20 Rupees for an average time, 100 Rupees for a good time and a Blue Bird Feather, Golden Skull or Goddess Plume for a great time.
Now what is a bad, average, good and great time you may ask? Well it depends on the Silent Realm. Here are the times in minutes:
Farore's Silent Realm: Great is less than 3:00, good is 3:00 till 3:45, average is 3:45 till 4:45 and bad is anything more than 4:45.
Nayru's Silent Realm: Great is less than 4:15, good is 4:15 till 5:30, average is 5:30 till 6:45 and bad is anything more than 6:45.
Din's Silent Realm: Great is less than 6:00, good is 6:00 till 7:30, average is 7:30 till 9:00 and bad is anything more than 9:00.
The Goddess' Silent Realm: Great is less than 4:00, good is 4:00 till 5:15, average is 5:15 till 6:00 and bad is anything more than 6:00.
Good luck! ^_^
The Hylian Shield isn't that easy to find in this game compared to previous Zelda games. In fact a lot of people probably don't even pick it up since it's optional. However, I think it's really worth it: blocking attacks with it doesn't drain your stamina at all.
So how do you get it? Well Lanayru, the thunder dragon, gives it to you. Don't worry if you don't know who he is, he isn't hidden or something, so you're probably not far enough yet. But he won't give it to you for free, you'll have to win it by playing his mini-game, it's called Lightning Round. (See my other submission for tips to win it and what other rewards you can get) If you're able to defeat all 11 bosses (12 in hero mode), you'll get the shield!
Yes, you can actually do that in this game. Well, of course the naughty parts are covered up, but he won't be wearing any clothes.
First you'll have to climb on the Knight's Academy's roof at night. Then use the Clawshots on the chimney to enter it and you'll have entered a secret room. Look down and you'll see Gaepora bathing, but sadly you can't join him. Yes, this is why Karane couldn't enter the bathroom at night.
Walk a bit further and you'll find an entrance to Zelda's room. Be sure to check everything! If you do so, you'll find a Gratitude Chrystal and a Heart Piece. Also note the Tingle statue. Oh and you can also read Zelda's dairy... If you dare to.
When you've gotten the Clawshots, go to the entrance to Lanayru Desert(but speak to Dodoh on his island first) and activate the Time Stone. Climb up the vines, or Clawshot up, and walk along the ledge. Slowly make your way across the gap, and look for a rainbow wheel. Get closer and have Fi call the robot. Walk down along the ledge to grab a chest, and return to the sky. Fly over to the island and give Dodoh his wheel. He will unlock his minigame for a Heart Piece, lend 5 Crystals, and let you try his game once for free.
For the minigame, you will be blasted up and forced to dive back down. Hit the rings in the sky to rack up mulitpliers, and dodge the Dodoh Balls. If you can land on the 50-Rupee space with a 10x modifier, you get 500 Rupees and a piece of heart.
Finally, there is a Goddess Chest under the island.
As you are going through the game you will have to help the scrap shop keeper fix his robot.To get a sacred flower all you have to do is go to the Lanyura desert.Remember the first place where you activated the time-shift stone.If you activate this the area will go back to the past surrounding.Look around the chamber[next to the machines on the wall]and you should see a sacred flower.
As you go through the game you will get to a point where you have to collect 3 sacred flames.As you are going through the first flame mission[witch is after you get to the dragon] mission to a point in witch you have to slash at a door with a certain direction.The order of these slashes is up,down,<,>.At this point you should be able to go through the door and continue on in your mission.
Hope I was a help.

After you beat the Forest Temple Kukiel's mother will ask you to help her find Kukiel. Now if you ask people around town they will tell you they saw Kukiel playing in the graveyard. Now fly to Pumpkin Landing, here talk to the man who talks about a monster. He'll tell you about seeing the monster in a Graveyard at night. Now fly back to the town and sleep till night after this head for the Graveyard. Theres a tree in the Graveyard just go to the Gravestone nearest to the tree and hit it with your sword. After that push it open and a hidden door should open up. Just go through and follow the path and you'll find Kukiel and the monster.
As you travel laying on the ground you'll often see a green fruit like object. These are called stamina fruit and are often laid about on a trail so as your dashing you can refill your stamina gauge without having to stop very much to rest.
