      Couple problems with recent lucid dreams

      Lately i've been having lucid dreams about every night for some reason. In these dreams the same thing is happening everytime. I wake up in my bed, but it's not in my house. It's in another house i've never seen before. When I wake up my eyes are heavy, as is the rest of my body. It's extremely difficult to keep my eyes open and to move. It's like gravity's been turned up 1000%. I drag myself off of my bed and try to move around, but it's extremely difficult. I usually try to see people I know from school, and how I manage this is by thinking about who I want to see and then walking around the house until I finally see them. When I see them and start interacting I start to lose focus and then I wake up in the bed again and the process starts all over.

      Anyways, both of these things lead to very unpleasant lucid dreaming experiences. For one, I have to use all of my energy to even move and it feels horrible, as I said like gravity has been turned up. For 2, as soon as I start to actually do something with my dream I start to lose focus and then re "wake up" in my bed so i'm never able to do anything in my dreams. I actually have been hating lucid dreams recently for these reasons, and was wondering if anyone had any tips for fixing these problems.

      Hmm...it sounds to me like your dreams are a bit unstabile. I would suggest some stabilization techniques after becoming lucid, and after you wake from the strange bed. Try performing some reality checks for stabilization purposes. You can also rub your hands together, feel some textures around you, look down at your feet until it seems clear and then slowly raise your head to a front face position, closing your dream eyes for a bit letting them rest and then opening them up again, taking deep breathes, spinning in a circle, etc. If your heavy eyes are a problem, try putting some eye drops in them during the dream, or rub them so they become clear. You could also try putting on some eye glasses, etc. Just get creative with it. You'd be surprised how well improvising works in lucids. A suggestion for the heavy feeling would be...Imagine you are wearing cement boots, then once they appear on your feet, simply take them off and you will be light once again. Good luck to you and I hope you find something that will work for you!

      Maybe next time try doing something other than seeing people from school.

      Ha. I've had the same problem, but only with my eyes. I don't know. I think the more you focus on a problem in your dreams the more prevalent it becomes. Try to distract yourself in the course of the dream and you'll forget about your gravity problems. You might also forget that you're dreaming, unfortunately...
