Staying Awake

Postby Kaylium » 22 May 2013 19:20

Do you have any tips on how to keep your mind awake during the WILD technique? I've tried counting numbers as I inhale and saying to myself "I'm Lucid" as I exhale. I always end up falling asleep. Also, I can never seem to concentrate on the numbers and words going through my head. My mind always wanders. ???

I prefer to just observe my physical bodies breathing (and often will do physically chanting too (dream yoga technique) with the breath.. think HAM on the inbreath, SAH like a sigh out with the breath, on the outbreath).

I also ask myself "Are I dreaming?" every so often, which can trigger off LD if one accidently does fall asleep. I doubt whether the words "Im lucid" would work so well in making one aware one is lucid.. probably posing a question to yourself on this is better as it makes you have to actually consider the situation you are in).
The only thing to fear is the fear itself
