Re: Help with dream recall

Well today, I did my first WBTB. I got up at 6 a.m. and stayed up for 40 minutes. When I woke up around 10, I remembered multiple dreams. None of the dreams were lucid dreams though.

But does anybody know why it is that I could only remember dreams after a WBTB?

Re: Is this the hypnogagic state?

Thanks, I see what you're saying. But what I don't understand is, I was trying to focus my awareness into the spinning/sinking feelings. Or at least I thought I was. Anyway, I'll try again tonight and see what happens.

Is this the hypnogagic state?

Last night I tried to explore the hypnogagic state, so that it may eventually help me with WILD. But I'm not sure if what I experienced was in fact hypnagogia. I laid in bed and relaxed myself, and after about 15 minutes I started feeling slight numbness in my hands. I kept focusing on letting my bo...

Help with dream recall

Hi, I'm a beginner to lucid dreaming. I haven't had a lucid dream yet, but I've been "training" for about a week now. I noticed my dream recall improving greatly, and sometimes I could remember multiple dreams a night, but for the past few days I've barely remembered any dreams at all and ...

Re: It happened!!.... for a second.

That's great! Your first lucid dream! Though it didn't last long. I'm a beginner and I've yet to have a lucid dream, but I remember reading that the first thing to do upon becoming lucid is to stabilize the dream so that you don't wake up. I'm curious though, what techniques have you been using?

Re: Beginner questions

I see. So I could possibly wake up with the intention of WBTB, but then practice WILD as I'm going back to sleep.

Re: Beginner questions

And I was also wondering - are WILD and Wake Back to Bed/WBTB the same thing?

Re: Beginner questions

Thanks. Yeah, I read that WILD is difficult to master, but it's very effective when done correctly.

Re: Beginner questions

Thanks, I see what you're saying. I've been doing reality checks, journaling, and occasionally MILD, but when do you suggest I start working on WILD? I don't think I HAVE to wait until I have my first lucid dream to start perfecting it, but when would it be most beneficial?
