From FAs to LDs

I had a very vivid False Awakening this morning, and just at the end of it, I realised that it was a false awakening. I thought ‘this is my chance to have an LD’, but I was unable to do anything - I just saw nothing in front of me, and woke up very quickly. :frowning:

This is quite frustrating. Is it possible I was not at the right level of consciousness for a LD, i.e. too awake? Has anyone got any advice on how I could have turned it to an LD from here?
