Re: Adapted MILD technique using floatation

Interesting using caffeine in that way. I can see how that would work in general, though. So it's Thursday, and I've just tried the method described at the beginning of this thread. Long story short: it worked. OBE followed by a false awakening. I'll give it a go next Thursday too. For those interes...

Re: Adapted MILD technique using floatation

Caffeine isn't good before a float because it's a central nervous system stimulant. In the tank, you're going to be hyper aware of your body, and with caffeine you'll be fidgety and not be able to get comfortable. Which would be a shame since the tank is one of the most comfortable places you can be...

Re: Namaste Everyone

In my experience, any time you want something like a sword that freezes things, having pink leaves on trees, or a mirror will all take conscious effort in a lucid dream. If there's something specific I want, I have to focus on it. However, you can put those ideas into your subconscious so they will ...

Re: Hello :)

Welcome Sarina! Most lucid dreamers I've met are excited to talk about it, so that's unfortunate that it hasn't been the case for you. For me, it's almost like a little secret club... Kind of the same as when you meet someone else who is left handed haha I'm curious though: when you say you've been ...

My Challenge with Extended Lucid Dreams

This morning I had an extended lucid dream. (A lucid dream in which I was able to extend the duration for a long stretch of time.) A "normal" lucid dream for me is going to run anywhere from 30 seconds to about 3 minutes before the dream collapses and I wake up. About 1 out of 7 lucid drea...

Re: Adapted MILD technique using floatation

Right on! Let us know how it goes. Although I would agree with them that coffee before a float isn't a good idea.

Re: Namaste Everyone

It's a bit complicated, so forgive me if things get confusing. And if anyone else sees things differently, they should chime in. The "grounding tool" that I described above is not a complex mechanical system. If one were to make such a thing in the real world, I would agree that it would b...

Re: Adapted MILD technique using floatation

I have built a quiet room at home, pretty much a home anechoic chamber. A room inside a room and isolated from the main building on rubber mounts and its very dark and very quiet. The first thing you discover is that your body is noisy if thats the only noise around but its easy to tune into to thi...

Re: Namaste Everyone

You're right, I don't have any experience with makeup! :lol: However, I do have experience of looking in the mirror or looking at my face in lucid dreams... You're welcome to give it a try, but I find looking at my own face in lucid dreams, things usually get a bit weird hahaha. Might not be practic...
