WILD Help

Postby Dreamer3456 » 24 Aug 2012 18:47

Everytime I try to wild I stay still for about 3 minutes then I feel like I have to swallow and no matter how much I try to hold it. I end up swallowing and having to start all over again and when I don't have to swallow and Im about to enter sleep paralysis I feel like I have to check whether I am in paralysis or not so I move and ruin it all again. How do I stop the swallowing reflex and how can I stop myself from checking whether I am in SP or not?

Hmm, when you say swallow, do you mean a normal swallowing motion like when you swallow your food?

As far as I know, a gagging reflex is when you are about to choke on something so your body tries to regurgitate it.

If it's just a normal need to swallow, then allow yourself to swallow now and then. It's a normal need and you can take your mind off it. :)

The checking one is hard because I have that problem too. My hands and feet and part of my legs I'll have no touch sense at all and my whole body will feel relaxed and quite heavy. I will check if I am paralyzed and it turns out I'm not.
I don't know how to avoid this other than just don't move
