      Dream collapses too quickly

      Hi,

      Recently I had a few lucid dreams that lasted only a few seconds;
      and turned into the void.

      I even had a wild last night but it faded away within 10 seconds.

      Iíve tried to rub my hands but it doesnít help.
      I donít think itís related to excitement because Iím relatively calm when I become lucid.

      Iíve heard somebody saying that you want to follow the flow of the dream first as opposed to force things to happen
      because that might make the dream collapse.

      When I become lucid I always try to do the things Iíve planned to. Maybe I should just have a look around first. That could be my issue.

      Have you experienced something similar ?

      Iíd welcome any advice.

      Thanks

      I have similar problem. Even when I'm calm it's still collapsing. You're probably right - when we want to make things too quicly we lose control because we can't focus on the environment. So there is no base for a dream at all. It's tricky 'cause when you don't know what to do in LD it's not good either. Next time I'll try just to play with what I have at the moment, look around and stuff. Maybe you should try it too. No need for a rush. As I remember now I had longer LDs when I was more focused on the surroundings so yeah, that's definitely the issue.

      I used to have this problem too.

      I used to not want to look too closely at things, didn't want to get too excited, didn't want to try to have sex, not want to make any sudden moves - just go with the dream and hope it lasts as long as possible.

      Didnt work.

      I read some threads on here, that I should have probably been doing just the opposite.

      This is what worked for me..

      Dream stabilisation techs.
      Breathe in all the senses. Taste, touch, smell, warmth/cold, etc. So instead of not wanting to look too much in detail, it was exactly the opposite that I had to do. Look in much more detail, and this really stabilised the dream.
      Not to get too excited. Daily meditation sorts this out.
      Also to keep moving, as if I stop, then the dream just dissolves.

      What not to do?
      Not look to closely at things.
      Want to just drift along with the dream. Aimless drifting dissolves it.
      Getting too excited.
      Try to do too much with my dream limbs. I can't control my dream limbs as much, so climbing up a ladder isn't really recommended.

      That's a good piece of advice.
      My dreams tend to collapse when I stop moving (when I stop and stare a something).

      I did notice when I walk, float or fly the dream is very fluid.

      Thanks for your input.

      Cheers

      Keeping your mind focused on what you are doing is key and something that will come with practice. Getting lost in thought, which most of us do on a daily basis, is a sure way to end a lucid dream. Something also that I have found is that the Wake Back to Bed method provides much more stable lucid dreams that lasts longer. This may be because of the mid sleep alertness that we bring into the dream.

      It is good to not try to force things... the dream is more stable if mind is concentrated and relaxed. Just observe as much as possible.
