Re: Never had hypnogogia

All right so I'm 16 years old. I don't smoke. I don't drink. I don't drink alot of coffee. I've never ever experienced hypnogogia ! I've read tons of articles about it but I just can't seem to get it. Apparently to some people it just comes naturally but not me. Can somebody give me tips or steps o...

Forgetting specific answers from subconscious.

Today's nap yielded a very nice lucidity, and I spent the time talking with my subconsciousness through nearby dream characters. I seek lucid conversations with my inner self about the current major problem in my life. Here's the thing: some answers I remember clearly even now, but some other specif...

WILDs: Guided meditation and Hypnagogia control? How?

Only recently have I read that you can learn to influence or "control" hypnagogia through will to induce WILD. This raises some questions in me, and I beg forgiveness if there are answers to this elsewhere on the forum, but I have my own situation/context that I'd like some feedback on. Th...

Interpretation wanted (short nightmare).

I posted about this quite a while ago in the dream sharing forums, but as I've begun thinking about interpretation, I thought about posting it here to see if someone would help me interpret it and point out the things to look for. After a short LD, I had a false awakening, losing lucidity and forget...

Re: WILD trouble

When I try to have a WILD I always find i have to swollow because of saliva build up. Is this why I cannot become paralyzed because I keep having to think about and move my muscles to do this? Having worked with hypnosis and some meditation, I know it's normal for people to swallow alot when in a t...

Re: Struggling with lucidity

Also, another good technique is the DEILD. It stands for Dream Exit Initiated Lucid Dream. Look it up in more detail but the basic plan is you wake up either around REM or just after a dream via auto shut off alarm or auto suggestion. Then you stay completely still and many times it results in a WI...

I find 8 hours to give me plenty of REM sleep


What do you use to tell you that you have had plenty of REM sleep, how do you measure it?


That was a good question. Mostly because I can recall a good amount of dreams after 8 hours. I didn't consider if this is true for others aswell.

As a musician and singer, the music to both videos steal my breath even more than the scenery. Thanks for sharing :)

Re: Can't reach Hypnagogic state

If you know what hypnagogia is (if you've caught it "in action" in the past), try asking your subc. mind to bring you hypnagogia, then relax and quiet your mind to allow the sensation to take place by itself (it can't be forced, only invited).

Re: What do I do first

You dream multiple times each night/morning, so it's not because you don't dream :) A dream journal is only the 2nd step in recalling dreams. The first step is to actively recall anything atall. You could try this: Right after waking up, ask your self out loud "What did I just dream?" and...
