      Question dream stabilization for the same location

      Hello,

      What do you do in order to stabilize a lucid dream at the same dream location?

      I would like to be able to speak with my dream character about some topic for a long period of time at one location.
      Hands rubbing does not work very well for me, spinning would definitely change the scenary, whereas running and jumping, activating my senses would not keep me concentrated on the topic.

      Just touch something for a minute. Stay in one place and look around, don't really use your senses. Just be in one place and don't rush things. Don't get excited.
      Sometimes if something fails once, you think it will never work, but try it again without any doubts.

      Ps. Your avatar is so creepy.

      Tried and failed. Lesson learned - never try.
      I've been having this problem for as long as I can remember. My dream scenes are simply not stabile. All I want to do is sit back in the same scene.
      I guess I should first increase the level of lucidity to a very high level and then observe the early signs of lucidity loss, but I have no clue how to accomplish this.

      Try to really focus your complete attention on the person you're talking to, because elesewhere in this forum i forgot where but, it says that nothing exists in your dreams without your attention.

      Focus on one spot for a period of time trying to increase the clairity and vividness of that area. This usually brings your focus and attention back to dreaming. Remain calm while doing so. This is quite a good method of dream stabilzation that I know of.

      Also you tried the rubbing of the hands to no avail, so I won't suggest that again. If you are near a DC you can ask them to increase the clairity, vividness, etc, etc, etc, for you. This helps quite often as well from my own experience. Others have testified to it working as well to both of these actually so I would give either of them a go.

      I'm having the same problem at the moment, my dreams are way too unstable and constantly changing. I hate to say it, mainly because I hate to do it, but meditation helps with that. But as a possible alternative, reading for extended periods of time may help keep things from changing too much. It forces your mind to stay focused on one thing instead of jumping around from random thought to random thought.

      But why do you care about the location if the topic of conversation is all you're interested in? As long as you stay focused on that and ignore any distracting scenery changes, you should be able to keep your talk going.

      I suspect that the frequently changing scenes of dreams and its instability have something to do with the waking life habits. Right now I am experimenting with some concentration exercises just before the lucid dream induction. I'll also give more chance to that gazing technique.
      When I am talking to DC in a room for example, mental pictures of the topic eventually materialize in dream, the walls disappear and the thread is altered.

      When I was first starting with L.d. I first learned to fly and then to walk. Never been able to sit still for a while.

      Have you tried grabbing the DC and holding them in front of you while you talk to them? I've done that a few times, and it seems to stabilize things. At least until I start to worry things will destabilize. It seems my doubts have more effect than my desires.

      Grabbing seems logical. There is also dream stabilization tutorial by dream team somewhere on the site. I'll also take advice from them and actually practice stabilization techniques while doing reality checks in waking life.
