Help and hello!

Postby Mayazcherquoi » 20 Jan 2012 15:02

G'day folks :)

My name is Daniel and, which is plainly obvious, I am quite (quite quite) new here. :p

The method I try to use to induce lucid dreams (I have never actually had one before) is the WILD technique. I am very good at laying motionless, and thoughts always pop in to my head so I don't get bored at all. Plus, my girlfriend is next to me and I like hearing her breathing. :)

However, there is always one point during the WILD technique which I always fail to pass, and that is when my mouth numbs and then begins to open. Because of that, saliva builds up in the back of my throat with a constant urge to break my stillness and swallow. I can only lay motionless on my back, any other position I am uncomfortable (however, I usually sleep [and fall asleep] on my side).

So, my question is - how do I overcome this?

Regards,
Mayazcherquoi. :)

EDIT: Since I don't have enough permissions to send a PM to Rebecca, I hope you read this, but could you please change my username to Daniel in the AdminCP? Thank-you :) I sometimes forget to check whether it exists or not as it is usually taken, this time, I forgot and it wasn't taken :(

Regards,
Daniel. :)

Ok, I am not a very specialist of the WILD, but I know that if you try to induce your first LD by tying to WILD at night (in the evening I mean, not during the night), it is almost completely hopeless, because by far too difficult for a beginner, even if you think you have natural skills for this technique.

The step you describe very well is indeed very difficult to overcome, even for exerimented lucid dreamers (and also the well known step of skin itches, on the face for most of them).

It would be easier to try it during a WBTB (Wake up Back to Bed) for example.

For complete beginners (but not only for them), I would advise to begin with MILD / BILD (Belief Induced LD autosuggestion) + WBTB. WBTB multiplies by 5 your chance to become lucid in the following dreams.

Hope it helped you and wish you soon lots of LD :)

Oh, okay. I just read on the WikiBooks Lucid Dreaming Guide that it was a very good way to truly experience Lucid Dreams, and to have them at will. Although, last night, I did ignore what I mentioned in the original post and I came incredibly, incredibly close. My eyes started flickering behind my eyelids, darting from left and right. Although, I lost it right about there :(

I did that just a couple of hours ago, in fact. And, I wasn't sure if I was dreaming or not (as in, just awake and dreaming [daydreaming] lying in bed, or asleep and dreaming), although I hope the latter. I remember looking at the time, and then asking my subconscious if I would remember this dream vividly, the guy (well, my squire) responded, "Yes", and then I told him to ensure that I remembered the dream. The last few parts of the dream I could remember well, as-well as most of the beginning (I was part of a battalion on horseback trying to overthrow Isengard with Minas Tirath trebuchets... too awesome :p), but I woke up from the most quietest sound and I think I had heard that all throughout my dream as well (hence the confusion - it was my parents talking). :-/
