Re: wild technique

Had a brief WILD the other day. I had been up for a few hours and was still feeling a little sleepy, so I decided to try a WBTB/WILD. I laid down and relaxed, counting down from 100 saying 100- I am lucid...99-I am lucid.. etc. I began losing track of where I was around 75, so I decided to start cre...

Re: Personality traits of dreamers

People who have been lucid dreaming or astral projecting for a long time often have a different sort of look about them. Can't recall all the names off-hand, but if you take a look at Stephen LaBerge, Robert Monroe, they all have deep, piercing eyes. If you've ever met or conversed with someone like...

Re: Possible to dream about being lucid?

I've had false awakenings, but they have all been dreaming about waking up, which does not quite seem to be what you're talking about. I have also had dreams in which I thought about lucid dreaming and not become lucid, but I have never had a dream in which I dreamed that I was lucid dreaming. I thi...

Re: Possible to dream about being lucid?

But wouldn't the very nature of lucid dreaming make this impossible? If you dreaming that you go to sleep and dream, and become aware of that dream, would you not then be experiencing lucid dreaming? Because by definition, lucid dreaming is being aware that you are in a dream. Therefore, even if it ...

Re: Socially Appropriate Reality Checks?

Try to just levitate. You can do that without anyone knowing. But what if it works? Then everyone will know! ;) I haven't really come across one that would be very noticeable, unless you're writing on your hand to remind yourself to do RC's. I usually combine a mental and a physical RC. I'll try to...

Re: Dream Journal Discipline

I tend to slip into that too, especially when there is a day or two where I don't remember any dreams. I just bought a new leather-bound parchment journal, and its sole purpose is to be a DJ, so I'm finding myself more motivated to do it now.

Re: wild technique

The hallucinations result from hypnagogia, not sleep paralysis itself. They simply happen to occur in very similar stages of wakefulness, and therefore are often related to each other. As for being afraid of what sleep paralysis feels like - you don't need to be. Just do some research on what it act...

Re: HELP!!

To begin with, stop using caps lock. It isn't necessary by any means.

Sleep paralysis is a warm, heavy sensation. It will feel like a blanket has been tightly tucked around you, or as if you are sinking into the surface of your bed. If feel this and are unable to move, you are in SP

Re: Meditation and lucid dreaming

They are very similar experiences, so meditating will familiarize you with what dreams feel like, increasing your chances of becoming lucid.

Re: Dream Guides

Question: do you have a particular character or person you always go back to for assistance? Or can your guide be the first person willing to talk to you in the dream?. I have not yet actively pursued a dream guide. There is one character that I think I will go to though, as he was present in recur...
