Rapid Eye Movement Ruining LD attempt
PostPosted: Thu 07 Jun, 2012  Reply with quote

Couldn't find a clear answer to these by searching the web or the forum here.

Is REM what is happening right before you enter a dream? If so, then I'm not too far away from achieving LD.

..But, here's the problem. Whenever REM accurs it always ruins my LD/WILD attempts. Maybe I focus to much on it. Any tips?

This thread is so hilarious in many degree.

1. You always have REM when you dream, no exceptions.
2. REM happens about 1 hour after you're asleep.
3. You can never observe it happening to yourself, because of point 2.

You're probably hallucinating.



Current LD goal(s): Meditate for an hour in a dream

more clearly, REM - Rapid Eye Movement is when your eyes move IRL accordingly to how your dream-eyes move in your dreams. aka REM = DREAMING

Ok, to make it more clear: WhenI try to WILD... after a while my eyes start to move "rapidly" and it ruins my WILD attempt.

Maybe that's not what a "REM" is, but that's what I guessed it was.

If you stare at one object too long it wakes you up because it interrupts the Rapid Eye Movement



Current LD goal(s): have 2-3 lucid dreams a week

yes, you've misunderstood.

but if i understand you correctly your eyes annoy you while attempting to WILD and making you lose focus?

when I try to WILD I keep my eyes still and it's no problem, but when I'm getting close they start opening and closing fast.

okey, i think i kinda have the same problem.

someone here on LD4All claimed he blinked rapidly for a few minutes before attempting to wild as to tire the eyelids out and prevent them from opening (as easily anyway).

don't know if it works though.
