      Vision Problems

      So ive been Lucid a total of 2 times now. Wow no surprise im having difficulties but heres my issue.
      When i had my lucid today and i first went to do the RC in the dream. I could feel the weight of my arm before i plugged my nose and it was heavy and uncomfortable. I plugged my nose and felt the fresh air glide through but my arm was still trippin me out. I decided to get out of the car i was in so i opened the door, I knew where i was at but my vision was all dark and the green grass was all faded and i could only see a silhouette of the car i was inside of. I tried to concentrate on looking at the grass and the color was getting brighter but then it suddenly quickly faded and the dream ended.

      I wouldn't mind hearing some tips on how
      1. You got used to moving around in the dream world.
      2. Obtaining some decent Dream Vision
      3. Speaking, i found it hard to talk out loud.
      For now.. ill just keep dreaming

      Sometimes when I enter a lucid dream, it feels like someone is covering one of my eyes and pushing my head towards the ground. Usually I just fight this and try rubbing my hands together and stimulating any senses that I can. Eventually, the weight is lifted and I'm free to do whatever I want.

      Try keeping a dream journal, it helps a ton with vividness and clarity.

      Can't say anything about talking.. never had a problem with that.

      I posted this in another forum but received no answer. I see that other people are suffering from similar things. Let's hope we can all help together!
      I have had lucid dreams naturally since I was a teenager, not a lot of them, but quite a few over the years. Lately I decided to try galantamine and choline together to see if they could help more. They do work, as a matter of fact, however I have noticed that almost everytime I take them, my experiences are a little bit frustrating...Let me explain....

      I usually start getting the vibrations around 30 minutes after I take the pill and that is my signal to know that I can basically try to 'separate' from my physical body and get off the bed in this other 'plane'. I have no problems in doing so, the problem is that it is extremely hard to see when I start walking around! I usually get an image (usually the last thing I see before entering sleeping, like the ceiling, pillow or my arm) stuck in front of my field of view and it moves with me as I walk or move my eyes around to see my surroundings. This imprinted image blocks my vision making this lucid/oobe experience extremely frustrating. Sometimes, the environment is also too dark or it feels that I can't keep my (astral?) eyes open to see clearly. I have tried different techniques like spinning or mantras and sometimes they help but most of the time they do nothing.

      Anyone having or heard about something like this? I hope you can help me overcome this frustrating obstacle to fully enjoy my lucid dreams!

      The main problem is that you can lucid dream in nREM sleep as well as REM. If you become lucid in nREM do not stress about the visuals, they will naturally be weak and dark. Go about the LD and have fun. It is good practice and can still be very fun. Experience doing things rather than looking at things. Sometimes if you stay lucid long enough you can shift into REM. Just don't waste the dream worrying about the visuals.

      Check out the thread this quote links to, it covers most of your issues. As for speaking, I had that problem as well in my first few lucid dreams, and it just seemed to go away on its own after a while.

      1. Touch: Touch everything around you the minute you become lucid Touch the floor, the walls, buildings, grass, act. This will help "anchor" yourself in a dream.
      2. Spinning: Once a dream starts to look blurry or less vivid, spin around rapidly with your arms out for a good 10-20 seconds. You might end up in a completely different place, but the dream will re-stabilize.
      3. Look down at your hands and yell "Clarity Now!" when you look up, things should look more vivid and stable.
      4. Diving: When a dream is beginning to end, or whenever, dive into the ground. You will probably reach complete blackness, but than a completely new dream will open up. This is similar to DEILD in the sense that you can chain dreams.
      5. Rubbing Hands: If you become lucid in a blurry dream, or the dream is ending, rub your hands vigorously and the dreamscape will re-stabilize.
