What is the best way to WBTB?

Postby LucidCamostar34 » 30 Jan 2018 18:47

I've been looking at some good WBTB tutorials, and usually I get one of two things.
One requires you to set an alarm for 5 hours, then when it sounds and wake you up, turn it off then go back to sleep thinking about your dream. Pretty much a quicker WBTB + MILD

Another one is when you set an alarm for 5 hours and then just say up around an hour. Followed by a WILD or MILD.

Which one is the better way? My guess is "it works depending on who" but I want to see your opinion :D

MILD dreams, WILD goals.

Bingo. Experiment and find what works for you. Some people may work better with 4 hours or even as little as 3 hours(or so I've heard). it may be worth experimenting with if you have the time. I've found that setting my alarm for 4 hours is what works best for me.

I wish I could do the quick WBTB + MILD method,but I HAVE to stay up for at least 30 mins or 1 hour for a successful LD induction. maybe this will(hopefully)change as I get more experienced,but this is what works for me so far.

Hey there!
As you said, every person have his / her own technique, but I'll recommend you what I did when I used to try WBTB:

I would set my alarm clock for after six hours of sleeping, then I'd read my dream journal to set my mind already into the dreaming theme, then after about 20-30 minutes I'd go back to sleep.

Most of my lucid dreams came from this method, so I highly recommend it, good luick!
