Once again, it is kind of strange, but is their any way to deliberately induce it?
And fell into a fitful sleep
Escape to realms beyond the night
Dream can't you show me the light? "
First of all, don't be afraid. It's a completely natural response of the body to entering the sleeping state. You will be surprised though, as to how it feels. Don't be discouraged if, the first time, you just freak out a bit. It's normal, you will get used to it. Embrace it.
- Use the wake back to bed method, or find a way to lie down while being tired, and needing sleep. That is important. Wake back to bed: set your alarm a few hours before the time you normally wake up, let it ring, get up do some things, start the day (ideal scenario: read on lucid dreaming, read your dream journal, things related to dreams) for some minutes then go back to bed.
- Lie down, don't move. If it itches, scratch it, but revert back to not moving. Close your eyes, try to stay awake. Think of things, try not to sleep. Lie completely still, focus on your breathing (or not, depends on people). Focus on what your eyes can see (nothing: blackness), or what your immobile body feels (legs, arms, etc). Wait. It can take a minute or it can take an hour, depends.
- Eventually you'll sense a sort of buzzing in your ears and head, and your vision might turn whitish. That's sleep paralysis kicking in. Eventually it gets pretty overwhelming, the buzzing gets louder, your vision might start wrapping a dream world around you (ideal scenario), and your whole body starts vibrating. Other side effects can also be felt.
Then, congratulations, you are paralyzed. Problem is to actually enter a dream from there for many people. Most of the time, you either fall asleep for good, or wake back just before sleep really kicks in (make sure that it is NOT a false awakening. They can be VERY convincing during a WILD, for you never lost consciousness).
