Sleep deprived. good time to attempt a WILD?

Postby Vaellian » 29 Jan 2013 23:54

I had awoken for work after a decent night of sleep. but tired. that night i had only gotten 3-ish hours of sleep. i couldn't sleep for.... reasons. but i could close my eyes and try to sleep. so i'd say if anything 3:30-4 hours MAX. 2 nights ago. last night i was able to sleep from 3am-11 am. 8 hours... now even though i got 8 hours last night. am i still REM deprived currently. where after my classes let out at 8. could i possibly attempt a Wild? as 8 pm is basically my afternoon because of my college schedule

It's worked for me, but not right after initially going to bed. It works best for most people after 5 hours of sleep. Doing right when you first go sleep is difficult, being sleep deprived on top of that would make even harder.

Lack of sleep is great and for me almost a certainty of producing a lucid dream BUT if the lack of sleep is due to uncontrollable stress (relationships, financial etc) I think that using the state is hard as it takes a lot of skill to get the relaxation needed to enjoy the fatigue and use it to get lucid.

Ear plugs work wonders so try them to block noise.

Peter's experience is what I have experienced. When I'm under a great deal of stress, I don't have any LD's, but when I'm not, I can have LD's whether or not I'm sleep deprived or have had too much alcohol, etc. The stress is the main factor for me. It does always happen in the early morn hours...after I've woken up and am going back to sleep. Never right when I'm falling asleep.

it was only for that night. so i don't need earplugs. i was just saying how i missed a night of sleep. but even though i got 8 hours. do i still need to make up that sleep? and if so. would an afternoon nap be a good time to do a wild

I have success with afternoon naps for OBE quite often but I do need to be tired for this to work. Its just the opposite to a WBTB where I need to be rested and fully awake - LOL to go to sleep and be able to stay awake when I do :)
