Despite where it's from, anything's worth trying in my opinion. I'm excited to give it a go.

Attempted this last night for quite a while. I was easily relaxed and fell asleep doing it. Unfortunately, last night was the first night in three days that I didn't remember a dream or fragment. I am going to try tonight again, will update if there is any change as to the outcome.

I did it! This trick (in combination with the water trick) allowed me my first seconds of lucidity since I was a child! I am soooo happy! Thank you classicalhisux for posting this! *dances, cheers*

I've tried this twice when going to sleep. Kept going through the colors until I fall asleep. Both times it gave me very vivid ND's, it really seems to have some effect. It puts me in a relaxed and comfortable state of mind as well. I'll keep doing it, hopefully I'll get some LD's from it too. Thanks for sharing this! ^^

I have tried this a few times now and I have had detailed dreams, seems like dreams more. At least I get to write more stuff in my DJ when I do it. But I haven't tried it that many times. I just have a good feeling about this technique. It also got me relaxed quite quickly.

This technique can also be pretty nice in meditation too ^^ You can concentrate on it and relax your body, and let go of all your stress. It's pretty cool smile

Rashid 11, you're right, the link doesn't work anymore. Although that may be, this technique seems promising. It's showed some success and has said to create very good normal dreams. I believe that if you use this right, you could modify it to help induce indeed a lucid dream. I'll be trying this tonight and post how it went tomorrow. Good job on this technique by the way!

.. this is good.. because you will most likely find youself in a dream
of the last colored object that you were imagining.

Enjoy.


I have two questions.

1) How long should I think about the colors? How long should I give for red, orange, indigo etc etc?
2) I have an extreme insomnia condition. It takes around 2-3 hours for me to fall asleep. Will I be able to fall asleep fast with this technique?

rashid,
the content was posted into this topic. Mainly because of the controversial content of the rest of the site .

ArmanMoo,
I go with 10secs, and that's what other people in this topic said too, but you can go longer if wanted or needed.
And b) yes it will definitely help. Just remember to relax, focus on your intention of visualizing colors (which means no distractions, just think about the exercise) and keep cycling if needed. I got asleep in a single cycle more than once ^^ and I was a poor sleeper too.

Hmm.. but it seems really surreal that I'll fall asleep in a short time when I have such an extreme insomnia problem. (I'm 16, and I've tested 2 different sleeping pills at two different times. They didn't work on me..)

1) How long do you think it will take for me to "fall asleep"?

2) Doesn't this mean that this technique the ultimate cure for insomnia?
