      Losing vision as soon as you realize?

      Has anyone else had this experience? I think I've had it several times... I'm pretty sure a few nights ago, in the middle of some other lucid dreams, I attained lucidity when I suddenly realized, "I'm dreaming!" In an attempt to stabilize, I said out loud, "This is a lucid dream." I was excited, but trying not to be too excited. Then, as if in response to my statement, I suddenly lost vision. I could hear the dream going on, and knew I was still in it, but I suddenly got frustrated and just threw myself down on the bed in my dream and announced, "Fine, get me out of here!", and I think I remember waking up in real life, then going back to sleep. Any thoughts?

      Well, first I would yell out, "I'm dreaming, I can see."

      If that doesn't work, try opening your eyes.

      Otherwise, I can't think of anything.

      I think it happens because you're kind of shocked... You could've waited longer. If I knew that my dream was going on, I could wait for the rest of the night just for few minutes of vision.

      that happens to me sometimes. Just chill on it and try to feel/hear your way around for a little while. It will come back in a few minutes.

      My advice would be to explain the darkness then get rid of it logically. For example, say there must not be any lights on. Then, you get light and all is well.

      I lose vision alot but it usually comes back if you wait. Sometimes it goes to a tunnel vision and gets smaller and smaller like I only got a small hole left to what I can see the dream through.

      coincidentally, this happened to me last night...Made me pretty mad :\
      I know the feeling though. I did almost exactly what you did.
      I found out I was lucid, did one thing (advanced task) and then my vision when
      black. I was mad so I just woke myself.
      I ♥ DREAMVIEWS. I always have, and I always will. There is nothing else to it.

      This has happened to me the last 2 or 3 times I've become Lucid, so you're not alone! I'll try saying "This is a dream, I can see", thanks for the advice!

      Ahh, this happened to me last night:

      I was leaping over various items in my surroundings when I noticed how high I was leaping. I suddenly became lucid, and attempted to fly. As I began to fly, the dream world began to envelop me, and implode. I dropped to the ground, sat down, crossed my legs, and brought my hands together in front of me - rubbing them vigorously. My head felt weird, and I opened my eyes and saw the real world. Obviously annoyed, I went back to sleep. Unfortunately, I woke up 10 minutes later and realised that it was a false awakening.

      Use the spin technique.
      Just spin round and round on the spot. A new scene should form.

      I have a similar problem but as soon as I realise I'm dreaming and say out loud "I'm dreaming, I know I'm dreaming" the dream immediately starts to fade I don't even get a chance to try and stabilise it. The last time I became lucid I quickly tried to rub my hands together but the dreamscape just faded to grey as I rubbed my hands and I immediately woke up.

      None of my LDs have lasted more than a few seconds

      It seems like my brain totally loses it's creativeness when I become lucid and so stops generating the dream.

      Anyone got any tips to try and help?
