Help! I tried a WILD without waking up hours later!

Postby TripleXGold » 30 Jul 2016 15:15

I was really intent on becoming lucid last night. So i tried a writing induced lucid dream by writing down a mantra over and over again (I will know I'm dreaming and control it). When I decided to finally get in bed, I went completely still, and for about 30 minutes I didn't move. I began to feel the sleep paralysis and at times my body felt like I was spinning, but I just couldn't fall asleep and eventually I gave up. Is the only way to do this by waking up in the middle of the night? Can an expert please give me the best way to become lucid as soon as possible?!!

What you did was a WILD (writing induced) + WILD (wake induced), which actually don't sum up, but were you rested enough to fall straight into REM? If not, you need to do it while breaking your sleep cycle using WBTB or trying again with a nap instead of a night sleep.
If you find it hard to enter REM consciously, by means of concentration or meditation, I recommend you WBTB+MILD, in case your imagination is powerful enough.
Just to note, if you wanted to do MILD, don't try anything but a first person view, otherwise, the consequences may be a bit unwanted.

i'm not an expert, but there is no such thing as "the best" way.
we are all people with differences relative to one another, so my best way, is not persé yours.

plus i think you should shift your attitude to a more patient one.
rushing will not help you matey.

take starrogue's advise to heart. ;)

Best of Luck matey.;)

Well, first, it is likely that a 3rd person MILD will not continue inside a dream, but if it does, theoretically, it is mostly possible that a MILD scene would be merged into an actual dreamscape, as-is. So that's no surprise to see a 3rd person dream after a 3rd person MILD, which is not really comfortable. There have been some reports about this problem. You can also search this forum for it.
