      LD ending within 30 seconds

      After around 30 seconds, all of my senses fade away and i wake up... I'm calm enough, and there is nothing special in the dream to make me wake up. Furthermore, hands method doesn't work for me at all, and neither does spinning. I tried to stabilize my vision a lot, but the dream ends.

      How do i solve this issue?

      That's a tough problem, as illustrated by the number of ressponses you got.

      That you are waking up might have nothing at all with your LD'ing, or with any techniques you are using for prolonging the dream. Instead, it might have to do with the fact that your body has determined it is time to wake up, regardless of your interest in staying asleep and in the dream.

      The downside of LD'ing, especially when you're practicing it late in the sleep cycle (aka, ironically, the best time) is that the waking-life consciousness you brought with you to the dream is exactly the thing that inspires your body to come fully awake. If that's the case, there a couple of ways to deal with it:

      First, you might work on your timing. If you are getting lucid through WILD, consider doing your WBTB a little earlier, so that your body is less interested in waking up naturally. If you got lucid through DILD, which can happen at any time in the night, things are a bit more problematic, but:

      Second, if you can learn to recognize the sensations that accompany waking up, you have an opportunity to do a DEILD. Let your body wake up, and then simply return to a new period of sleep and dreaming without really leaving your dream.

      Sometimes all the prolonging techniques are completely useless; this might be one of them. Instead of trying to preserve your current dream, choose another route that accepts that sometimes your body is irrevocably in control, and find a way to work around its natural inclinations.
