Problems with Lucid Dream

Postby Destructor » 16 Apr 2016 22:15

Hi all! So for some time I practicing Lucid Dream, but I facing with some problems:
1) I not always can change environment, so about creation of something I even do not speak.
2) Dream always have range, for example if I walking through city, the farther from the dream start position, the more difficult to move.
3) Run goes hard, when I running I feel like my legs moving slow-motion.
4) The farther from the dream start position, the more environment becomes distorted.
5) Quite frequently environment are blurry.

All these problems I experiencing when I realize that I am dreaming.
I hope here are people who can explain why I experiencing this problems.
Also I would like to hear opinions of people who experienced same problems.

I'm sorry if I wrote with mistakes, I'm not good at english. :roll:

Odd things will be more noticeable in lucid dreams than ordinary ones tenfold. And the initial price you pay for lucidity is the corollary that you've become aware that rules don't apply to the present scenario, too; this sets the precedent for an array of doubts befitting a mind wondering if the familiar modus operandi of the waking state will run as smoothly in the new state, which, needless to say, is highly unstable and requires effort. Your best weapons: mindfulness; confidence; belief; proactivity; and an intrepid attitude to making mistakes.

This is typical of out-of-body-type exits from the perceived sleeping-body stencil with me. Movement can become near impossible. But as long as you believe that you have an opposing force that you must fight against, the problem will persist. You see, you are the inadvertent source of the oneiric quandary.

If you believe that you can run like Hussein Bolt because you're in a dream, nothing can stop you but a moment's doubt.

The more time passes in a lucid dream, the greater the potential for its instability. Also, the perception of movement may trigger the mental logic that changes should occur. And the change doesn't have to be realistic because you are lucid and perception is, after all, free from the constraints of sensory input from the external world. You are awake and asleep at the same time. The body is in sleep mode but you are awake in dreams.

Amplify your senses, demand clarity, take charge. It is your personal world. Own it. You may not be able to control everything but you can become quite good at making favourable changes. ;)
