It's just because you're expecting it to happen. After reading this though, you'll be aware that you're expecting it, so I expect that the next time you get a lucid dream, you'll be able to stay in it, because you'll be expecting to stay in it. The key is to remember that you are in complete control of the dream; you control when you wake up. And don't try too hard.

Well... if you are getting into a LD already... then thats a really good thing. Perhaps you should give yourself one small goal you want to achieve in your LD (do this before you go to sleep). Then, work on building up control from there... small steps.

Also, if you feel the dream is fading out (and you are about to wake) two great techniques to keep you in the dream are: 1. Looking at your hands or rubbing your hands together and 2. Spinning!!! Just spin on the spot! ^^

Good luck!!

Yeah, it's pretty normal to wake up after getting lucid, don't worry... I've been LD'ing for about 8 months now and still wake up after getting lucid sometimes... sadblauw
But I'm slowly getting better, so just keep practicing and have some faith! wink
