      Dream Spinning

      When you dream spin, do you do it with your eyes open or closed?

      Eyes open! I've found closing my eyes in lucid dreams just causes me to lose lucidity.

      Anyone else have experience with this? I've always assumed that it was eyes closed, but I noticed that most tutorials just say to spin, without specifying with eyes open or closed.

      Really the whole point of the dream spin is to
      1.) Feel your self spinning
      2.) Your mind will create more to see when you spin all the way around which makes you stay in the dream longer.
      Really it's best to do it with your eyes open in my opinion.

      Yeah, it is better to do it with eyes open but not impossible with eyes closed...
      I think it is the way you prefer it. I just think you get better chance that your spinning works if you keep your eyes open.
      And while spinning visualize the dream scene you would like to be in.
      If you close your eyes chance are that you wake up.
      When you want to wake up from a dream to remember it, you close your eyes...

      If you close your eyes while spinning, there's a chance you might wake up, so I advise against it. If you are spinning to change locations or stabilize the dream (for clarity), I suggest keeping them open. Like reere mentioned, visualize the scene or location you want to enter while dream spinning.

      DO NOT SPIN!!! Spinning is the worst thing you can do in a dream. What you gain from spinning is an intense sense of movement that anchors you in the dream. Unfortunately, spinning is disorienting, which makes it difficult to focus on your surroundings. Everything requires your attention to exist in dreams, so if you are disoriented, you can't focus properly on your surroundings, they fall apart and you wake up.

      Instead of spinning, try running, jumping or flying. Spinning sucks, period.

      I think that's why you spin very slowly, like a step every second or so.

      Why disorienting? Never happened to me...
      Well I am not using this technique that much cause when the dream collapse, I rather exit. Then reenter a dream using DEILD.

      I assumed you'd have to spin kind of fast. Is this true that you should spin slow?

      Slowly is best, just fast enough to gradually get the whole 360 around you. Spinning too fast is known to destabilize the dream and disorient you.
