      Hello!

      Hey DV!

      My name is Zac and i'm a 15 year old student from Australia.

      I have been LD'ing for about 3 years on and off, recently I have had the motivation to start LD'ing again and hopefully consistantly this time.

      I am pretty good in terms of becoming lucid and dream recall, altough my weakness is dream stabilisation.

      It seems like as soon as I become lucid my dream starts blurring or fading out, also whenever I close my eyes in a LD I can never get them back open.

      Thanks for reading and hope to see you guys around the forum!

      Welcome to DV!
      I've been working on the same things lately, I struggle a lot with the dream ending into a false awakening. I've found two things that have helped me, maybe they'll help you too.

      I like to DEILD when dreams end prematurely, this is nice for saving a lucid dream but I feel like I have to keep doing it to stay in a dream.

      I've also started using the affirmation that I don't have to wake up yet. I use it in dreams and in waking life. I like to walk around when I'm awake, pretend that I'm in a dream, and marvel at how fantastic it is to not have to wake up yet. I do that until I feel comfortable knowing that I can stay in the dream for a long time and that it's not going to end anytime soon.

      I hope to see you around!

      Thank you Rockefeller & AnotherDreamer.

      I also DEILD whenever I exit a LD, I try to chain as long as I can. I'll try doing the pretending to dream thing as it seems like a pretty good idea.

      Nice to see another Aussie on DV!

      I was having trouble with my dream stability recently, too. The technique described by AnotherDreamer has been working wonders for my dreams over the last month or so.
      I've gone into a bit more detail in the intro of my dream journal here, if you're interested.
      It seems that the less I worry about instability, the less it's an issue for me.

      You'll probably come across other stabilisation techniques around the forum too, like spinning, engaging your senses (eg. rubbing your hands or biting something), or verbal commands. Different methods work for different people - it might be worth giving some of those a try.
      I've also seen some cool ideas for getting your eyes working, like taking off imaginary glasses/lenses, or simply realising that you're not restricted by eyelids in dreams because you don't have eyes! (I believe those ideas came from Sensei and Sageous, respectively.)

      Good luck, I hope you find something that works for you!

      Thank you

      I had a crazy LD today which you have to look in my profile for that post because I can't post links yet.

      Along with it being my favourite LD ever, I think I learnt a lot from it in terms of stabilisation.
      When I was thinking about not being able to get my eyes back open I couldn't, although when I did it without thinking it was fine and dandy.

      I think I need to just stop thinking so much about it like you said and hopefully I've solved the problem.
