      My dreams fade after becoming lucid

      Recently I've started to become lucid more often in my dreams, but my dreams just fade away like 10 seconds after becoming lucid (Happened my last 3 lucids, have had 2 before without problems)
      Im not getting overexcited or something and I try to stabilize (In my last lucid I was in a dark room or something, trying to stabilize by looking at my hands and focusing, but it just faded away usually do that to stabilize)

      Any tips?

      rub your hands together, spin around, try to will the dream to stay and if nothing works shout out loud "I WILL STAY IN DREAM!" or something like that.

      Yes, rubbing your hands is a good suggestion, Atras. Nice comment!

      To answer your question, I've had this happen alot. The most important thing that I realized is that when I lose the dream I almost always fade into another dream. (Usually in the form of a false awakening.) So right after waking up and going, 'Ahh, crap. I lost the lucid.' think that maybe you are just in another dream and check if you are dreaming. Next, one thing I find is that lds last longer when I am doing things! In essence what I mean here is that don't stop to think if you are losing your lucid. Don't simply concentrate on staying in the dream. Walk around. Do a little dance. Follow a white rabbit down a hole. [Try not to do anything to crazy like fly. That can cause instability.] The more you simply think without action, the more detatched you become from your dream/dream body.

      I recently had a dream that began to fade shortly after I gained lucidity. I remembered reading on the site that it was helpful to grab hold of things - anything - around you, feeling the dreamworld, making it as real as possible. It worked, and I experienced quite a long lucid after that. Hopefully you can find similar success

      Yeah, like Higurashi said grabbing onto things or touching things in dreams seems to help a lot.

      I remember reading somewhere that sight is the first sense to fade, and then hearing if I remember correctly. Touch is usually the last to fade so if everything blackens or becomes mute it helps to grab onto something and feel the textures.

      Sometimes when my dream starts to fade I like to touch carpet or grass. Feeling the textures really makes the dream more vivid. Plus it helps me to not think about waking up or lying in bed.

      If you actually do wake up, and you realize you're not dreaming anymore and you're just looking at the back of your eyelids, it helps to just keep your eyes closed and meditate on the dream. Often you will fall right back into it.

      I find it easier to reenter the dream when I think about things other than just sight alone; like the feeling of grass or carpet if that's the last thing I touched, the feeling or sound of wind or rain if that was in the dream, the feeling or sound of water splashing if I was swimming, stuff like that.

      If a lucid dream is starting to fade on me, shouting or saying something usually just makes my actual mouth try to move, and that can make the dream end even quicker. I've tried it several times but it doesn't seem to work for me personally.

      I also wouldn't rely on just looking at your hands. rubbing them together should do a lot more for you. If thats not enough, try running your hands through your hair until it feels real, or feeling your clothing.
