Too short lucid dreams.

Postby ogiknez » 04 Feb 2016 00:30

My lucid dreams are just too short.
I don't even freak out about having a lucid dream,I'm calm.
I rub my hands,spin around,and yet I simply lose the connection to the dream,I don't wake up.
Anyone got through this problem?
Any tips?

This is exactly what happens to me, I got over the excitment phase but even after rubbing my hands and using these kind of techniques I stil woke up or lost lucidity.

I don't have much of a 100 percent working tip, just tips that could help you gradually become better at keeping the dream lucid:

keep rubbing your hands or shout "clarity now" or touch your surroundings in the dream.
When you go to sleep, tell yourself in your head something like "Tonight when I become lucid I will stay lucid'', or something like that, it doesn't really matter, as long as you make it comfortable for you and short enough to repeat it.

I hope I helped.

Happens to me a lot too. :) My longest and most memorable lucid dreams are the ones where I had the presence of mind to remind myself out loud that I was dreaming. When I don't do that, it fades away quickly. Just keep muttering to yourself "it's a dream, I'm dreaming," or something like that.
