2 seconds of bittersweet lucidity
PostPosted: Mon 15 Oct, 2007  Reply with quote

ok so 2 days ago i had a really vivid dream, and the whole time i was questioning the reality of it, at the very end, i realized i was dreaming and woke up. Then, last night the same thing happened, but with a longer dream. At the very end, i remembered i was dreaming and the lucidity lasted a little longer than last time, but was barely there. I don't remember getting excited however, so what could have woken me up?

Yeah its so hard to stay lucid. You may want to try the hand rubbing technuqe, and spinning technique, aslo as soon as you get lucid shout "MAXIMIZE LUCIDiTY!"

Maybe your discovery that you were lucid?
Try stop drop and roll like you do if your on fire but do it to gain lucidity.

Mhm, the exact same thing happened to me; http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=25340

Some advice quoting from there:

Usually people beginning to LD wake up when the first realize they're dreaming because the shock of dreaming right now is to great or it's because they become to excited, which causes them to wake up. The solution is rather easy. All you have to do is remain calm once you realize your dreaming. Some other things to try are rubbing an object in the dream, rubbing hands together, and spinning. They all help to stabilize the dream and keep you in it.

Try to relax. Tell yourself that you are going to stay in this dream. Be cool siiw
That worked on me.

But since you have allready woke up from a LD, maybe you remember and learn from it next time?

Try doing an RC before you say you're dreaming just to make sure. It's called an FA.

I locked this since, as himebanana pointed out, there already is another topic about this.
