I couldn't control my false awakening lucid dream?

So, as soon as I fell asleep, I was in the REM stage. I had one dream before I had a false awakening lucid dream. Well, in my false awakening, I knew very well that I was dreaming, yet I couldn’t talk, I could only feel and move. And I tried to get something to be in my hands, but I had no control at all over this lucid dream. Has anyone experienced this before?? Did I have to wait till I get control over the dream? I"M SO CONFUSED :sad:

Being lucid doesn’t mean that you will be able to control the dream. Dream control is another subject. However, it’s not that hard to gain control of the dream when you’re lucid. I would simply advise you to read this guide: Dream Control Training Course. It will surely help you.
