A very specific question about the relaxing part -heart rate

Postby Jacob46719 » 12 Dec 2014 01:04

Even if it's not in a WILD attempt, I can sometimes remain conscious enough to notice the difference between normal heart rate (around 75-85) and sleep heart rate (around 60). I also notice that sleep paralysis never kicked in without this drop, and none of my WILD attempts succeeded without this drop. The problem is that as soon as I notice it, I get just barely excited about it, and heart rate rises back to normal, which is annoying. Are there ways of keeping down, and can I get better at it with practice?

I personally think it would be extremely hard to not sudden raise it subconsciously when you've noticed the shift you are seeking.

Maybe you could try instead to watch your breathing instead.. as that would be then possible to keep it slow when you notice a shift. Im sure that would shift too going from awake to sleep.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself
