Hi and welcome to the forum, Nefilar! If you are trying to induce a WILD, as soon as strange sensations arise in your field of awareness, amplify them with your mind before you think about moving away from your sleeping-body 'stencil'. To amplify any sensation -- be that sight, sounds, touch or vibrations -- is to quicken your mental world to great depth and realism. Once such sensation peaks, the more likely it is that when you decide to move it will be your phantom body, and not the physical one, that will be shifting and perambulating the dream world; most likely you will find yourself lucidly exploring an inaccurate replica of your bedroom and house.

Don't even think about moving or worry about whether you will do it corporeally or mentally. Just do it (when the time is right)! The sensation of getting out of bed may feel real but this doesn't mean you've ruined the process of inducement. Just get out of bed and test your reality -- you will quickly discover what really surrounds you which will most likely be a dream environment in which you are lucid.

Here is a link -- about the mind and the management and prolongation of lucid dreams -- which you may find useful:


Good luck and sweet lucid dreams, buddy! Let me know how you get on and I will try to find the time to coach you if necessary! :-)
