I just read about a method that is focused on staying very still and waiting for sleep paralysis. The description I've read eliminates any mental focusing or quieting. I like that since trying to establish a very quiet and clear mind while waiting for paralysis encourages falling to sleep which I seem to be very prone to do.
So last night I woke at 2:30 am and decided to give it a try. I held perfectly still and keep wide awake by thinking about various things that I find interesting. I stayed perfectly still and kept my eyes as immobile as I could. Of course I ignored the body signals to roll over, scratch my nose etc. I was hoping to feel the "lead blanket" sensation indicating I was becoming paralyzed but after 2 hours I finally gave up.
I felt like I was in a staring contest with my body, and my body finally won as I decided I was wasting my time.
Mind Awake, Body Asleep
Over and over. This gives me SP in about 6 to 10 minutes. Sleep paralysis doesn't equal WILD though, as I am discovering lol.

Also dont forget that the main goal of WILD is to fall asleep! Most beginners at WILD make the mistake of thinking that they have to remain absolutely still, which is unnatural. Think about when you go to sleep normally you turn over, itch, stretch and still manage to fall asleep moments later. The same rings true for WILD.
The misconception that you have to be motionless during your attempt is wrong, completely wrong. I blame Lucidology with their silly message or being dead still and ignoring your bodies attempt at becoming comfortable. This is counter-productive. They claim that your body is testing whether you are asleep and so you should ignore it. Absolute nonsense! Go with it just turn over or whatever and you will quickly enter sleep paralysis
Hope this helps
