rubbing your hands, dangerous?

Postby luigi_L » 30 Mar 2014 21:35

I am a beginning lucid dreamer, and not English so just ignore bad grammer. I have already had about 15 lucid dreams, but something has been happening lately: whenever I start rubbing my hands, my eyes start to close. It doesn't matter how hard I try to keep them open, they'll close, and a bit later I will be back in my bed; however I sometimes am able to re-enter a dream. This has been happening lately everytime I start rubbing my hands. I know that it can suddenly cause an explosion of feeling, but I'm good at staying calm. Does anyone know more or has had this hapening before?

Oh and another question, can lucid dreams just suddenly stop without even waking up, like a normal dream?

1. Sure, after all, its a dream, you will wake up eventually.

2. I think that rubbing your hands doesn't help you enough because maybe you need something als to keep you lucid, maybe touching dream objects, breath deeply, shout ''clarity now!'', there are full of options beside it.

Yea, spinning seems to be very effective for me.

One can end up drifting into a normal dream state from a lucid state and hence loose the lucid dream. One can also jump dream scenes easily in a LD eg spinning is one thing which can take one from one dream scene to another.

I've tried rubbing my hands and it was helpful.

Different things work for different people. For some, rubbing hands will trigger lucidity or expand/prolong it, and for others it will do the complete opposite. Personally, I don't notice any difference when I rub my hands. Doesn't make me more lucid, doesn't make me less lucid.

Experiment is key with lucid dreaming.
