Since i was a little boy 3-4 years old, i've slept with my parents at night until 13-14 y/o because i was scared of something. (ghosts, demons, robbers u name it). Then i kind of overcame that fear, and now (16 y/o) i sleep alone. But because of my VERY WILD IMAGINATION, im waaay to scared what's gonna happen in my SP's.
Is there a way to avoid SP'ing or anything please? Im REALLY scared of starting and SP.
By the way, is there any difference in the LD if you start with MILD, DILD or WILD? Like, is it more lively or better if you do a WILD... you know what i mean (sorry for bad english)
WILD's, i find, are the most vivid and realistic of lucid dreams. I've had some of my best LD's from doing WILD's. DILD's are dream induced lucid dreams, in which you become lucid within the dream from some type of dreamsign, reality check, or just simply realizing your dreaming. Most of them feel just as vivid and clear as WILD's. Same goes for MILD's and WBTB(which i combine with WILD's, quite successfully). It's really up to you, to find a technique that works best with you, as everyone is different. Like i said, don't be afraid of sleep paralysis! Not everyone has the 'scary' experiences with it, and it's really not as scary as you think, once you realize what it is(I didn't know what it was before, so it scared me, but now i know, and I'm perfectly fine.)
I hope this helped! (:

Goodluck, and I hope that helps.
Sleep paralyses is more likely to happen to those who dwell on this as after all we create what we think into our dreams so hence you are likely to create a LD of being sleep paralysed (lots of us thou hardly ever have it). So I do suggest you to deal with this fear before trying to LD.
To bring yourself out of a sleep paralysed state focus hard on a finger or toe and of wiggling it, its better thou to get used to being sleep paralysed and not allowing anything which appears to bother you during the state if you experience it, as forcing oneself to wake up can trigger off false awakening states.
