      kicked out

      first post in a while. i got caught in school and stuff. but anyway..

      so several times recently i've recognised i'm dreaming and starting to lucid dream. but i start to wake up. and it's not like i just stop dreaming and open my eyes. but like the dream is fading and being taken from me. i start to struggle to stay asleep but i've realised now that just makes it harder. but if i relax and accept it i just wake up anyway!

      what's going on?
      trying to put out the blaze with dewdrops
      if you see another bobsworth on the net it's probably me (btw actually tell me if you do know me on a different site. it'll be fun!)

      Have you tried rubbing your hands and focusing on the feeling, spinning around or looking at your body starting from your toes to your neck to stabilize the dream?

      Don't relax and accept it, Relax and... fight it.

      I like the quote from Morpheus in The Matrix "Stop trying to hit me and hit me!"

      So, stop trying to re-enter the dream, and re-enter the dream!

      ...


      It makes sense to me!
      On LD hiatus. Probably will start again around new years.

      Or, you know -- randomly throughout this year and next.

      I go through periods like this when my dreams "kick me out" the moment I become lucid. It is extremely frustrating, it isn't like you can increase clarity with a normal dream because it simply disapears. I haven't figured out a way around this with the exception of hoping for the best and enjoying whatever experiance comes my way. I did notice that it happens to me alot when I am trying really hard to have lucid dreams, (No, I don't wake up from getting excited) but if I relax and put less effor in them and instead let them come to me, I have fewer problems staying in the dream.

      I find that when I'm in a lucid spinning helps me make the dream clear. However I also have this problem where I'll just lie down for a WBTB and I'll be slipping into a dream and then BAM I'm wide awake. It's sooo frustrating. My only advice is to stop thinking about it. Whenever I start to worry that I'm losing a dream- I lose it!

      Happy Dreaming :insomnia:
