Charles Morley: NILDs

Postby Summerlander » 05 Jun 2018 16:55

Charlie Morley is doing a great job in urging people to recognise the opportunities presented by nightmares when they occur ...

There is also such a thing as nightmare-initiated lucid dreams (NILDs).

NILDs are essentially dream-initiated lucid dreams (DILDs) where the trigger for lucidity---or dream cue---is an unpleasant or terrifying situation. That would make NILD a subcategory if we must distinctly define the way lucid dreams are induced.

I have done this before where I've said to myself that if unpleasant events are perceived I must perform a reality check or assume I'm dreaming straight away.

The really terrifying situations are more likely to be dreams. The prep for NILDs is the same for DILDs with the aforementioned caveat that nightmarish events are identified as dream signs.

So you would still be helping yourself by recording and getting to know your dreams besides getting into the habit of checking reality.
"Empty cognizance of one taste, suffused with knowing, is your unmistaken nature, the uncontrived original state. when not altering what is, allow it to be as it is, and the awakened state is right now spontaneously present."

- Padmasambhava

Hi! I know this was posted a while ago, but just checking. I’ve had several DILDS until now, and if I understand you correctly some of them were actually NILDS. My first ever lucid dream started as a non-lucid dream where I got attacked by a cougar and during the attack realised that hm, this is weird, it must be a dream.. when you say that one shall record and get to know ones dreams, what do you mean besides a dream journal? Thank you for your explanation :)

record them in any way you want, journals or audio and them go read them or listen to them before sleeping and tell yourself if they occur again you will check to see if you are dreaming
Who are you I asked, the reply "dont be silly, we are your daughers" many years before they were born

Thank you! I haven’t been reading them before bed to visualise myself becoming lucid in the next similar situation, so I’ll try it :) thanks!
