I realized I had to stay calm one second too late
For me when I get lucid in a dream, if I calm down or stay immobile, I will wake up or lose lucidity. So when I get lucid, I run, walk or do something so that the lucid dream continue more longer.
Lucid Dream Count: 31+
Normal Dream Count: +∞
Objective: Make 30 Lucid-Dreams this year(2016).
this will start to make the dream scape familiar and you will build the skills to stay in the dream longer each time.
I put 'excitement', in quotes because I'm not sure if that's the right word. You can certainly be super-thrilled in a lucid dream and not wake up, but I also know the feeling of 'getting too excited' and it wakes me up like adrenaline kicked me out. And that will happen from time to time despite many long lucids under my belt.
And weird, gnarled hands... you'll get use to that. (Sometimes they are normal). But it's very common to have extra fingers, and all weirdly shaped and twisted.
And Je-Je is right about moving around and touching things frantically. Pick something up and look at it and move on to something else. That helps stabilize a dream for me, and then you can slow down and you are 'locked in'. (If and when I remember! ) You become so involved in the dream you forget about waking up and it becomes your temporary reality for a while.
I have had a couple lucid dreams that were really long and although I was fully lucid, I got bored because I couldn't change the scene or the dream characters were not interesting and I decide I want to end the lucid dream and wake up. Usually all you have to do is think about waking up and it will happen but there were two times where i tried it, and i stayed in the lucid dream (I wouldn't wake up). after wandering around a bunch more, I was finally able to get myself to wake up....I think maybe my body was so deep asleep at those moments, that I had to wait for awhile before i could willfully end the lucid dream (this has happened to me only twice) normally it is the opposite...me not wanting the lucid dream to end!
Please take my apologies for not answering so long >_< I used to come up on here from my phone, but it just didn't want to load the page and by the next day I always forgot to check up on computer, and seeing the amount of replies I got, I'm feeling so guilty T_T
Thank you for all the tips! Unfortunately I slipped back to the stage where I will have to work on remembering my dreams again, but once I manage to get a hold on a little thing, the habit comes back easier. It also doesn't helps that school is back, and I'm either bored or sleepy during afternoons so I take a nap and spend the night tossing and turning every few hours. I didn't sleep today so I'm expecting a normal night :3 But at least I'm not worried anymore that I "lost" the ability to remember my dreams - I know it will come and go in stages and that's okay.
The last comment, from hectorjose, reminded me when I was both awake and dreaming at once. It was a few years back when my mother still woke up during the mornings, and I have a good ear and hear her alarm watch through two doors. I was dreaming that a man was coming to the kitchen to kill me, I knew he was getting closer and closer, but at the same time I was laying in bed, I probably heard the alarm and half woke, and I heard my mother's steps as she was coming to my room, and I was silently kind of praying that she finally came and woke me and stop my dream.
Although I fell back on lucid dreaming again, I'm an optimist to get back to it, just my motivation wavers sometimes ^^"
