      What's Spinning Like For You?

      Spinning. It's a well-known technique for changing the situation and preventing yourself from waking up while in a lucid dream. In the dream, you start spinning, keep telling yourself that you're in a dream so you don't forget, and think about what you want the situation to change to.

      My question is, when you spin in a lucid dream, what do you see? Last night I had my first lucid dream in a very long time (I don't even make a conscious effort anymore, though after being reminded how amazing it is, I will) and I spun quite a bit to change the situation. When I spun, I saw static, like that on a TV. You might know it as "snow". At one point it even had a channel at the corner of my vision to mimic a TV, because I was thinking about that.

      tl;dr, What do you see when you spin in a lucid dream? I see TV static.

      When I tried spinning it just looked normal and nothing changed. It might be worth another try since my dream control is much better now and see what happens next time.

      I usually just see a blur of colors until a new dream scene forms.

      When I turn everything goes a little blurry:



      Then when I stop it gets all clear, and I am where I want to be.

      That's close to what I see but things are a bit more blurred together.

      I stopped using it because every time I span I woke up. I read somewhere that you're only supposed to concentrate on the sensation of the spinning, rather than the visuals. Maybe that's where I went wrong.

      Spinning feels like it does normally in waking reality, and each time I have spinned in a dream, it never changed the dream scene, possibly because I never willed for it to do so.

      The only time I remember spinning, I did a 180 and ended up looking the same direction as before somehow. Stuff was the same but people either appeared or disappeared.

      What I saw was the same as you'd see in real life. Blur from not focusing due to the spin.

      I used to use it as a means of teleportation. I spun hard, didn't realize that I had already reached my destination, and spun right into a pole. -.-

      If there's a way to fail, my brain will find it.

      I've never spun to change locations because it's quite easy to destabilize a lucid like that; I didn't want to waste a dream trying to get better at it, either. Besides, I wanted to keep my count regarding waking up prematurely at a 0. I spin slowly just to take in the details of my surroundings, in order to stabilize the dream.
