Re: Did I just have a Lucid Dream?

Now that you've experienced sleep paralysis and come away unscathed, I think you can probably do away with characterizing it as the "worst thing possible." Don't you?

Re: I can't go any further

So, you're only two weeks in, and have already had several mini-successes. Each time it seems you learned something about the process, got to know some of the many sensations involved. Perhaps I missed something, but it seems hasty to refer to all this as a block. Lucidity is a new and strange feeli...

Re: Promblem with WILD

Welcome! Perhaps it depends on the particulars of your WILD technique, but in my experience, I tend to skip over most sleep paralysis sensations entirely. It is a complete myth that you have to endure a demon on your chest in order to enter a lucid dream directly. That said, when I have felt SP effe...

Re: Lost ability to lucid dreams

I think the likeliest person to have taken the ability from you is yourself. You felt you were doing something without permission, something wrong, and needed to punish yourself, or protect those you would intrude upon. Have you tried apologising? Making ground rules to prevent future invasiveness? ...

Re: Second lucid dream!

I'll try to remember that next time, which probably won't happen for a while. Well, jeez, not with that attitude! You've done it before, you can do it again. In my dreams, it's hard to remember the things I've heard about staying in the dream. Yeah good logic and access to memories can be elusive i...

Re: Multi Dimensional Spy

Awesome! I was reading a book in bed and started to hallucinate. What book? Does the plot of your dream relate? It shows me a mirror image of myself. (This was trippy because I saw that yes I am looking at myself, but I did not look like who I look like in real life. I simultaneously knew it was me ...

Re: Did a WILD INSIDE a DREAM!!??

It is a bit confusingly written, yes, but I think I understood mostly what you were describing. I didn't respond because it would have basically said "Yup, this stuff we do can get pretty weird! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ " and it seems like you had a question, but I'm not sure what. Re: awake vs asleep qu...

Re: problems with WBTB

If you're having trouble falling back asleep, it does sound like the details of your WBTB practice may need to be tweaked. The likeliest culprits I see are timing, activity, and relaxation. Some people do better staying up for only 10 minutes or so, so give that a shot. Regardless of how long you're...

Re: Second lucid dream!

Congrats! You're on your way! It's a common thing for the excitement to pull you out of the dream, but a few more of these and it'll be no biggie, right? Of course I'm dreaming, do it every night! Part of the reason the dream dissolves is also the difference between "I'm dreaming" and &quo...

Re: Beginner needs help with WILD

Remember, these are just guidelines, not the One True Way to have a WILD. Yes, gazing into the black can make it easier to enter a scene, but it's not the only way to fall asleep consciously. I'm not telling you to give up; do try a sleep mask, and strive to remain relaxed trough the natural jitters...
