GILD - Game Induced Lucid Dreaming

Postby [Lucid] Maxda » 02 Mar 2016 07:19

* First of all, this isn't for everyone. If you're not into video games, this is not the method for you.

* You will need a video game. It needs to be 3D. The more realistic the graphics, the better. It is highly recommended that you play a non-linear, open-world game. In these games you can explore and do your own thing OR follow the game's main story - much like in a lucid dream. Here is a list of games that would work exceptionally well with this method:
Grand Theft Auto 4 - Total freedom in the huge world of Liberty City (based off of New York).
Prototype - While you have a smaller (but still very open and large) world to explore, the mere dreamlike abilities such as superspeed, flying and intense parkour available to you in this game make it a very good choice to not only practice dream control but inspire you to have a lucid dream.
Red Dead Redemption - From the creators of Grand Theft Auto, this game is almost identical save for the setting - the early-1900s Wild West.
Assassin's Creed I/II - Though your freedom is somewhat restricted, you still have free roam of the setting with the addition of acrobatic parkour moves to scale buildings and ancient Arabian temples.
Most MMOs (World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online, EVE Online, etc) allow the character to travel freely through a massive virtual world. As such, they would work well.

*An mp3 with some sort of message that says "This is a dream" or something similar. The easiest way to do this is to record yourself with a mic and make an mp3 file that plays that message and then has 15 minutes of nothing. That way, when you loop it, it plays every 15 minutes.


About an hour before you go to bed, turn on your game and play it. Have your mp3 set to go off about every 10 or 15 minutes. As you play the game, especially if you are playing an open sandbox game, really take notice to what you are able to do. Feel the virtual freedom. Every so often when you're doing something that you know you couldn't do in real life, do a reality check. When you hear your mp3, do a reality check.


When you crawl into bed, the gameplay should be so fresh in your mind that you can visualize it with ease and vividness. Do so. Feel the freedom, do things that you would in the game. Take note of the game itself. What are you able to manipulate in that game? When did you do reality checks when you were playing it? Make sure your alarm is set at the time you usually do a WBTB.


When you wake up, recall dreams as normal. Did you dream about the game you played? If so, you're definitely on the right track. Now turn on your game again. Repeat step 1. Play for as long as you usually stay up when you do a WBTB. Now, when you get into bed again, you should be able to visualize playing that game in vivid detail. As you return to sleep, picture yourself as if you were still playing that game. Don't re-enact something you did in the game earlier, imagine you are still playing it. What kind of freedom do you have? What can you manipulate? When did you do a reality check? As you go back to sleep, continue picturing this. Hopefully this visualization turns into a more vivid dreamscene. You could just as easily take this directly into a visualized WILD. If not, you have a good chance of dreaming about the game and becoming lucid.


I've copied this text from another website, i was too lazy to write it down lol.
