      How to make LD last longer?

      Hey everyone.

      the past 2 years I have been lucid dreaming, the longest LD i've had was probably 7 mins (yes i know...short). I used to get like 1-2 LD's every month but this morning i broke my record for 5 LD's this month so far, but just like every other LD I have, it was so short and not long before i felt myself wake up.
      Please if anyone can give me advice on how to extend my lucid dreams let me know.

      theres probably other posts like this one and I apologize, couldn't search for the others.

      you should figure out what kind of stabilization technique works for you. if you just become lucid and go off and do whatever comes to mind, your dreaming attention is going to waver and run out. but if you're really mindful of what you're doing and aware of this and your surroundings moment by moment, you will have a longer LD.

      i'm training myself to do the same thing at the beginning of every LD, which gives me confidence by reflexively stabilizing. a few times during the day i imagine that i've become lucid and i act this out.

      what i do is first, look for my hands and look at their details. then i look at an object, look back at my hands (using them as a reference point), look at another object, sustaining the sight of the first two, and then do this with a third object. then i gaze at them and then my general surroundings. next i rub my hands together and become aware of my body and breath, and finally i touch the roof of my mouth with my tongue (i learned from reading a book by carlos castaneda that there is a center of awareness in the roof of your mouth, and touching the roof of your mouth with your tongue stimulates your dreaming attention).

      if you feel like you're coming out of the dream, you could just come back to your hands.

      Spinning is another technique used to prolong LD's. When you feel the LD fading start to spin around, for some reason this prolongs it. I've also noticed as I spin to jump up and down at the same time, works better.

      Good Luck

      DEILD/chaining dreams is good for extending length.
