Anyway, please help and thank you
I've also learned that I have to control my emotions or I lose the lucidity
I feel its one level deeper than controlling emotions in that you need to achieve a state of mind where no emotions are generated and so no need to control and then a lovely stability will enter the dreams

Yeah, I'm not there yet; however, I noticed a huge improvement in my last LD. When I realized I was lucid, I did not get the rush of excitement with racing thoughts that I usually get...i was happy, and I just went into action. BUT I was still way too rushed and full of anxiety. I'm was afraid of losing the dream that I started trying to do all of the things I want to do in case the dream ended before I wanted it to and it just went too fast to enjoy anything. My goal for next time is to be calm when I realize I'm lucid and just spend a few minutes taking in my surroundings. Every other time I have immediately taken off running as fast as I can and start bouncing and flying. I want to just stand still and then walk and explore next time.

In fact once I start enjoying something a lot in the lucid dream and get emotional about it and excited, I lose control of the dream and it becomes normal.
I can relate to this, for whatever reason lucidity dulls the otherwise intense emotions of normal dreams.
I think if your emotions are too overwhelming, then you'll have to calm down. I guess it's better to have no emotion and carry on with your LD than being overwhelmed and waking up.
