      Lucid Dream Stability

      I've had plenty lucid dreams over the years, and I've never had any stability issues. However, I started doing hand reality checks recently and I've had two DILDs in the past week in which I checked my hands, realized I was dreaming, and then quickly lost my lucidity continuing to dream as I normally would. I remember that both times, it was very dark and I felt sluggish and tired. It was as if my lucidity melted away in the darkness. The second time it happened I was ready for it and tried hard to maintain consciousness, but failed after what I'm guessing was no more than 2 seconds. As I said, I've had plenty of perfectly stable lucid dreams in the past and I have decent dream control, so I have no idea what the problem is. Does anyone have any ideas?

      Hi there my friend,
      I think the best solution here is to stabilize your dream. Either by rubbing your hands or spinning your dream body. But take note that there are also other stabilization techniques out there, try reading the official Dream Stabilization Tutorial to know more methods in stabilizing dreams. Also, to prevent losing your lucidity and reverting back to a non-lucid dream, make sure that you meditate before going to bed. Clear your mind from other things and think only of lucid dreaming. Hope this helps and feel free to ask more questions

      By chance, have you been looking down when you do your hand-check RC?

      Yes I have... Is that a problem?

      PS: Sorry for the late reply, my email marked dreamviews notifications as spam and I didn't see them.

      Yeah, it's better to bring your hands up to your face, because looking at your hands with a plain backdrop (the ground) takes a lot of attention off the dreamscape, which is what is causing your stabilization issues. Try bringing your hands up to the horizon/eye level so that the dreamscape is still in focus. That should help.

      Good advice. This is also what I do-- bring my hands up to eye level. I also like to clap or rub my hands. It helps to stabilize, but staring at my hands or some other object helps to stabilize visuals and get rid of the inky vision.

      (3. Touch Objects In The Dreamscape
