Failing to WILD.

Postby Leksium » 29 Mar 2016 14:03

Hello,I'm Alex and I'm new to this forum.I would like some advice with the WILD Technique.I really can't get it done.I go to bed and I try to find a confortable position,after this I stay in that position for around 10-15 min.I feel the need to scratch and turn around,but I ignore it.I keep my eyes closed and i focus on my breath.I also try listening LD Induction beats and focus on the sound.Even if I focus on the sound or my breath I keep thinking about lucid dreaming and I kinda wait for it to happen.After a while i can see white circles growing and stuff like that behind my eyelids,I don't feel my body numb.I mean I can still feel my legs and hands.And I just sit like that and wait and wait...but I can't get it done.I tried the other method,waking up after 4-6 hours but still didn't managed,I couldn't fall asleep.And yeah,I'm a beginner,It was my 5th time trying this technique.So guys if you have any advice I would be glad to hear it. :roll:

I think you may be thinking to much. You want to get to the point where you are truly falling asleep, and the only thing you`re conscious of is the fact that you are going into a dream. Here`s my advice:

1.) make sure you are doing reality checks throughout the day
2.) while trying to fall asleep, breathe deeply and slowly.
3.) clear your mind. When you go to bed, be tired and ready to sleep.
4.) when you see those images and colors forming behind your eyelids, don`t pay too much attention to them. Simply let them exist and flow as they will. This means you are getting closer to the dream state, so be sure not to wake yourself up more by focusing on these images.

I hope this helps:) But keep in mind that lucid dreaming is unique for everyone who does it. The WILD method may not be the most efficient thing for you, and that`s totally okay. You do you!
