      Ok, this night I had 2 LDs (first time it happens, and unluckily I forgot the first one )

      The problem is: during the second of these LDs, as soon as I realized I was dreaming, I couldn't open my eyes!
      No matter how hard I tried, they would remain closed!
      In the end I tried very hard to open them, but this caused me to open my REAL eyes and so I woke up (but I opened them also in the dream, for a fraction of second I saw the image of my dream's bedroom overlapped with the image of my real bedroom). I had normal control over the rest of my body; I woke up laying on my bed but I moved to a sitting position, but always with my eyes closed.
      At one point, before waking up, I opened my eyes for an instant but I saw a small fraction of the real world so I closed them immediately... basically the same thing that happened in the end with the difference that in the end I didn't close my eyes in time.

      I had a similar problem in my only WILD: I could open my eyes, but keeping them open was extremely difficult and this woke me up. Also, during that dream I could only move very slowly.

      Problems like this do not happen always, however... in my other LDs I didn't have this problem... it seems that this problem appears more frequently during LDs started as FAs.

      Do you have any suggestions?

      WOW!!!!!

      I was just going to come and post that in my 3rd lucid dream this morning, my eyes kept closing and I kept opening them. That is very strange. I'm guessing this is common?

      Dude, that exact same thing kept happening to me. it suckes ass. I also could barely move my arms and legs. so i spent the entire dream looking around at how realistic everything was. I WAS IMPRESSED. anyways, and hints. maybe our brains were drifting from almost awake into dreaming. that would explain why i was soooo awake in the dream. kind of like a seasaw wavering in the middle. Thats my best guess, so try to LD when you're a little more tired. or when you get into am LD, DONT MOVE. if you start moving you'll get too excited and your eyes will close. Just lay, sit, or stand to let yourself get used to it. In my first one i was so supprised i didnt move for for 5 minutes after my reality check. I followed that up with 15 minutes of closing eyes, immovable limbs, and failure at manipulation.

      Well, during my last LD (not during the WILD), since I couldn't look around (obviously ) I tried to concentrate on my other senses to feel the world around me as "real", and in the meantime I was slowly (to limit the risk of waking up) raising my upper body; I was almost ready to exit my bed when I told myself "Damn, how can I move around with my eyes closed? I won't see anything!", so at that point I did everything to open my eyes...

      I had an idea after wakig up however. Since I had no problem opening my eyes BEFORE realizing I was dreaming, maybe "making yourself" open your eyes through some kind of automatic action would work; for example thinking in the most "realistic" way possible something like "What time is it?" (I mean, trying to make your subconscious think that you thought it "for real"; I know, that sounds strange ): maybe you would "automatically" watch the clock, and at that point you would open your eyes... I don't know if this would work though and I think that a lot of practice would be needed... what do you think?

      I wish I can get impressed by being lucid. Even though my first one suprised me, my last 2 (even though I actually did something) didn't excite me. I think it might be the fact that I wasn't fully aware of my surroundings. And when I wake up it's hard to remember what I did the whole time. All I've done in my dreams so far is float (I think), fall, walk around, talk to people, summon people, and that's about it. Kinda sucks even though I had a lucid dream that lasted at least 40 minutes. It's like I forget what I wanted to do (the lucid task is one thing).

      Hominus Feralis, I think the reason you can't walk or see is maybe because you try to imagine it. It's the same thing I have done. It doesn't work. I realized when I woke up that I needed to open my eyes and everything would appear. Try it, hopefully it will work for you.
