Lately after my first LD I’ve been frequently noticing that I’m dreaming. I take that as a very good sign but I have a problem. Every time I realize I’m dreaming I suddenly wake up no matter in what kind of a dream I’m in. I can be running or sitting while realizing I’m dreaming and I’ll wake up anyway. So the 1st question would be what am I doing wrong? It’s not like I get lucid when I realize I’m dreaming… I just realize and wake up the same second…
The other thing is that I’ve been practicing DEILD after waking up after such realizations… The thing is that it wont work I stay completely still with my eyes closed, not moving a muscle… I stay still like that for cca 5 minutes and nothing happens DEILD is as far as I know supposed to work in a few seconds… So the 2nd question - what am I doing wrong here?
Any feedback would be appreciated
