you should be happy. It means you're progressing :) you should read some on dream stabilization en set a thorough intention that you'll use a stabilization technique when u become lucid again.

gotta think positive ;)

I've noticed that when I'm dreaming normally, I remember it. When I'm lucid, I forget it (and I just started reading about dream stabilization today Sander, don't worry I took your advice):lol: . I just remember this from a lucid dream, IDK if it might help in any way. (Blur=forgot)
-Blur-I'm in this chamber and lucid (don't know how I got there) I kind of realize that I have angel wings (no I'm not religious) on me and they're perfectly crafted of smooth blue metal, silver, diamond, and ice. I think they were more "angels" with me, probably 3 of them. The chamber is like a secret Aztec-Mexican-ish themed place with a secret passage in front of me which looks like a decorated sun. I think I'm supposed to enter it.-Blur-
BTW, before this, I've always day dreamed-don't ask, long story- of someone teaching me in lucid dreams on how to do it but me always forgetting when I wake up.(I was pretty stressed not being able to LD in, like, half a year) Even then, this daydreaming was 3 months ago or so.
Feed back? It seems kind of fishy to me :P

I know there has been some good posts on the forum where we talked quite abit about our dream stabilization techniques..sorry I cant thou remember which ones. There are a ton of different things one can try thou to do that.

My latest dream stabilization technique is to bring an ex lover who I still like, into my dream and ask this DC then to touch me (not sexually thou but in a way thou which puts my focus strong onto the dream and excites me just a little. I then walk off as soon as I feel more stabilized (if you try this technique, you got to make sure you dont take things too far as that will wake u up). Its kind of funny as after doing that to my ex lover DC.. he was left looking rather disappointed by the second time I did that to him.

Having the DC do the moving and touching me..tends to work better for me then if Im about to loose a dream and I try to move to touch something in the dream, in which can at times cause me to then loose it at that moment.

I recently also found that me singing in the dream about the things I can see in the dream, can also stabilize me.

For myself big no nos if I arent stable are focusing on my hand (makes me drop out), spinning makes me drop out, moving fast makes me drop out... You'll have to play around to find what works best for you.

one question that has been on my mind is when you have sex, can you stay in the dream instead of waking up because you get too excited. i always wanted to know if proffessional lucid dreamers can stay in the dream while having sex.

Some can. Climaxing thou ALWAYS wakes me up (if I dont get over excited and wake up even before that). I frustatingly usually wake up just right before the crutial moment so now dont waste my LDs by trying to have sex. (I can have fun thou messing around a little but then stop so I dont loose my dream).

Can somebody explain to me how in detail to do WILD(And why do i fail).
I lay down,relax,try to stay conscious,wait for 20-30 minutes and i either fall asleep or nothing happens.
I have tried to do it at least 10 times, failing every time.
Its really frustrating, someone please help.

I have this strange thing where I can do "mind over matter" if you know what I mean. One of the things I can do is "make" myself mentally tired, and after achieving that I make my whole body weak. Feeling very tired makes you slip into the dream easily: trying to think of a WILD the whole time restrains you. Pretend you never heard of it. Become very deep in thought when you're transitioning to sleep, the reminder of LD will come eventually, for me right before I fall asleep (its like a subconscious schedule). It happened by chance at my first LD :D . Good luck!
BTW, just curious, why are you interested in WILD? I've always wonder why people wanted one. Its not much different, right? Or is it like a thing that helps you guys practice and all? I just do it cause it increases my chances of having an LD, even if the WILD fails.
