I have found that when trying to WILD I will sometimes be stuck in sleep paralysis waiting for the next phase for over an hour. I am usually very patient but after an hour of being concious in sleep paralysis I get concerned and I will move to snap out of it and just try and get some sleep. This is after I have woken up after 6 hours of sleep. After what feels like forever in sleep paralysis I checked my watch and an hour had passed since I tried to WILD. I also reality check to make sure I am not dreaming about lying in my bed trying to dream.
I have only ever successfully WILDed 2-4 times and that was a while back. Though I am able to DEILD dream chain almost every night. It is very rare that I do not have at least one lucid dream per night, but I want to move on to being able to WILD every night.
Has anyone had a similar experience or have any advise for me?

Im wondering if you are in fact in the right state for a LD but not recognising it.. maybe your reality checks are failing??? or the other thing Im wondering is if you are in the wrong state and more like a meditation/trance state. I myself find my meditation/trance like states different to my LD state and if I get into the wrong state I can stay in it ALL NIGHT and still be there laying awake but without a LD by daylight the next morn (its my all night observer state in which I can sleep but remain conscious all night but not LD).
There are various altered states of being for various things, one of them is LD. I cant figure out what state you are in when you are laying there for hours, nor can I figure out how to tell you how to go into the needed state for LD if you are instead going into others. I hope you find a solution.

I either end up hanging out in sleep paralysis or it just fades off me after a while. However people here are saying you can't move at all in sleep paralysis, but I have never been in a level of sleep paralysis that I could not break out of... sleep paralysis may come heavy over me but I never had the inability to break out of SP if I so desired. The only reason for this that I could imagine is that I perhaps transitioned seamlessly into a dream or OBE without my own realizing it and what I experience is a mild dream sleep paralysis that follows the transition? I doubt that though, it happens far too frequently. I know this post isn't very helpful to provide a solution, but I am in the same boat that you are in. Been in this boat for more than 2 years.
Agreed my sleep paralysis was always able to move in some way although little it didn't take me huge amounts of effort like taniust. And it's strange the few times I've wild it was interesting, for me it went from very sleepy then I felt vibrations for at least 3 minutes solid which is looooonnngggg.. And then I started seeing flashes of imagery that led to a complete picture eventually and then I was standing in my room and jumped up through ceiling... Even once outside my dream world still began to form around me.. I think I'll make a post of the images one thinks or sees at the brink of the sleep transition
