SPILD: Sleep paralysis induced lucid dream

This happened to me this morning and I was curious to know if anyone else had already experienced a LD starting this way. (I’ve never read something related to this) When I WILDed for the first time, I discovered what sleep paralysis feels like (the numbness and that strange feeling in my chest). Th...

Re: Having troubles with WILD or WBTB (HI)

According to my less than one week experience, it seems to be easier if you get out of bed before attempting the WILD. I think you can find more information about this on this website. It allows you to be more awake, hence more conscious of your body falling asleep. Also, if I remember well, it's no...

Re: Language of the subconscious.

In my (short) WILD this morning, almost everything I said to myself was in English, even if my first language is French. I don't think this has any impact, as no matter what language I use, I understand what I mean.

Re: Unexpected WILD attempt?

Got it ! On the fourth try this morning. I did the same thing than yesterday, but i focused on staying calm. No more racing heart beat or eye movement feelings. My breath was more constant too. At some point I began to feel my entire body going numb. Then the background sound of my computer became l...

Re: Help Please, Alarm + Dream Journal = HARD! >:(

I hate alarms so much that I've learned to wake up by myself !

Instead of using an alarm, you could try to use a radio ? Maybe that awaking with music is less drastic. Just put it at reach of arm so you don't have to get up to stop it before writing in your journal.

Unexpected WILD attempt?

Hi! Three nights after I discovered this site, I decided to try a WBTB. I always wake up early so it was an easy thing to try. First I wrote down the 3rd entry in my new dream diary and then I got up for around 40 min. Back in bed, I tried to focus on specific scenery and on the fact that I was goin...

Re: Back in Business?

Thank you for the answer! I read about MILD and will give it a try. When I fall asleep, be it in my bed or in the bus, if often notice that my thoughts begin to be mixed up, they'll construct something from two or three other things that have no logical link between them. When I'm aware of this happ...

Re: Don't give up on the lucid dream when the visuals go awa

I think I've already done something similar to this DEILD, but without the "L" (which is kind of the most important letter of the acronym). I mean I remember being dreaming quite vividly without being lucid, then slowly waking up until I was aware of the fact I was actually waking up. At t...

Back in Business?

Hi all! Two days ago, I found an article concerning lucid dreaming that caught my attention. I knew what it was all about because I used to have lucid dreams when I was a kid (or something similar to them). I was able to know I was dreaming so I could wake up from a nightmare. At the beginning of my...
