i tried FILD again last night. i think i went to sleep/woke up yawn at the perfect time clock because i was so horribly grumpy. i completely forgot what i was supposed to do uhh, and the only thought going through my head was, "who the hell set my alarm for four-thirty in the morning?!" crazy answer: me.

plus, i was having painful stomach cramps...ugh.

but i feel better now meditate, so i'll try again tonight. droom this is my favorite technique. tumbsuplinkswitteduim

Last night FILD got me my first LD. Not only that, but I got it with only the second legitimate try with this technique.


Current LD goal(s): Stabilize a dream and explore it.

Looks like a very good tech!
But i think i will have a problem with waking up before i usualy do.
Did someone ever did it right away? or maybe someone have any tips for me?

I think one thing you could try is, when you start feeling tired and your fingers start to slowly move less, allow that but keep imagining you're moving them. I did this once, at one point my fingers stopped moving completely but I kept focusing on the imaginary movement. That way your fingers are alowed to stop moving but you keep your mind awake.

I've had a couple of lucid dreams using WBTB or MILD, but this technique sounds surprisingly easy. I'll give it a try tonight and report on it tomorrow. I really hope this works well for me.
Update-
I woke up around 3 last night as I usually do. I remembered the FILD technique, so I gave it a shot. I moved my index and middle finger one at a time softly, and focused my mind on nothing but my fingers moving. After about 20-30 seconds, I felt a warp-like feeling through my body. I did the finger movements. for another ten seconds just in case. After I completed this, I did a nose breathing reality check. Success. I was in a lucid dream. This induction method works for me, and I'll try it again tonight. It's very easy, and works quickly. grin

I've tried this before... it doesn't really work... except for once... but all it induced was a dream of me doing the technique...

Hi, and welcome bye

FILD should be done when you are very sleepy and close to a dream. In the middle of the night is a much better time to try it. You don't have to put an alarm, you can just try to tell yourself to wake up after a dream naturally. wink

Just to add that it seems that it's working. I've had the same sensation as when WILDing, and as many already said, it makes logic : You just keep this low level focus while moving your fingers as you need in order to wild.

Trying it again this night,
thanks for the tech anyway. smile

Just a quick question, i may be wrong but when dreaming, dont you need to enter SP? and if so would wiggling your fingers prevent this from happening?
Im new to lucid dreaming and am really looking forward to trying this tonite. Feeling really confident that it will work too :D cant wait tounge2

welcome bye

that's why you have to be really sleepy. The thing is, after a while you stop moving your fingers and enter SP, but as you keep telling your fingers to move, you think they are still moving and you actually feel them moving... but actually they are your dream fingers. does that make sense? it's like, as you fall into SP, your attention goes from your physical body to your dream body (fingers, more precisely) without you noticing.

Since I'm trying to get back into this, I'm trying anything (I did WBTB for the first time the other night, and all the last three nights, I woke up grouchy grin Read my DJ). This one seems simple with good results, so I'll start trying it tonight.

The nights never seem to come round quick enough, do they?


OMFg, they dont! Ever since ive really been getting into lucid dreaming, i cant wait to go to sleep! And, thats not common for a 12 year old smile.

thankyou mattias smile, i completly understand, i tried this last night, and, (bearing in mind ive only had one vague ld before) it was the strangest experience, first try. Nothing happened, second try, after only 30 seconds, i try breathe wilst pinching my nose... and it workes, and i had literally such an amazing sensation as i knew i was breathing through my fingers. This then developed into a really strange ld. i knew i was dreaming, so i got up out of my bed, but everything was fuzzy, my head was dizzy and it felt like my head was filled with helium and trying to float to the cealing, i floated a bit off the ground, then all of a suden fell straight back into my bed and woke up. It was really strange but rather shortlived. Definatly trying it again tonite:) thank you for this technique, it is truely like golddust to me at the moment. smile
