But I have one question - with MILD, are you just meant to suddenly remember that your dreaming, or do you just suddenly just remember to take a RC? Cos usually for me it's the later (not always mind).


When I do MILD I always suddenly remember I'm dreaming, never do an RC. It's just totally obvious I'm dreaming and I usually start flying right away without any hesitation or doubt ^^ Guess it depends from person to person, I never do RCs, MILD or not.

Any tips on visualisations from those experts in MILD? I've heard that the general consensus is that they are vital, but any insights into special techniques, what you visualise, or where you visualise in relation to your mantra (e.g. after, before, whilst saying the mantra) would be welcome.

I visualise during my mantra. I visualise whatever I want to happen: me waking and writing in my dream diary, me becoming lucid, etc.

I tend to visulize myself finding a dreamsign and becoming lucid.

yeah I repeat and then say it out lod really meaningfully and then a couple of times in the half hour I remember to do it, I imagine myself in bed (kind of...smilie looking= smile ) and a little dream bubble pops up and in the dream bubble is me waking up in bed, and I look round and I'm dreaming. A little exclamation point appears over smilie me#'s head!

Then I go back to repeating the mantra!

A little wierd, but it gets it stuck in my head so I'm ok with my crap imagination!

I'm like Lucidity_Master, I basically visualize the last dream that I remember until I find a dreamsign and then repeat. Basically I use the technique as LaBerge outlines it.

I've been looking to broaden into WILD but haven't had much luck yet.

Sometimes visualization works for me, but usually not. Visualization tends to distract me from my mantra. Its best to just stick to one specific anchored thought. The more things you have floating around your mind while doing MILD, the higher chance your just going to drift off unconciously. Keeping focused on one basic thing for a while will give your brain a chance to drift into deeper levels of sleep easier.

A few times last week I decided I wanted to wake up during the night just to improve my dream recall and it worked very well, even found myself waking up out of habbit on days when I hadn't intended to. That got me worried, what if I can't stop this from happening eek2 but it was ok once the intention of waking was completely off my mind.

My last lucid dream was a MILD. I never thought it would work for me coz my mind usually does the opposite of what I want.

Well the MILD technique was the technique that used to work for me the best, but I have been very busy in real life and have not had the chance to practice it or any other indiction techniques recently.

As a result the number of lucid dreams that I have had has dropped down to zero. I'm starting to post to this forum again to help build my intentions.

Has anyone recently had any sucess with the MILD technique? Judging from the posts on this forum it appears to be the least popular technique, I wonder why that is?

ypm.

It is not that it is unpopular. In fact, it is most likely one of the most used technique by LD ers on this form. It is just that there really is not much to say about it.

It is easy for some yet hard for others. Every one is different it that regards. In reality all the techniques are easy it is just a matter of finding the one that is right for you.

Hey milod789,

I guess you are right about the MILD technique. One of the things that I have noticed is that most techniques that people use are very similar to the MILD technique in a few ways.

On that note I've also noticed that (in general) most LD techniques are quite similar, perhaps out of necessity or becuase of the way out mind works. I wonder if someone will come up with a totally new techique at some point?

Ow well, I've been working my way back up into using the MILD technique last night it almost worked for me and it felt like I developed some low-level lucidity in a few of my dreams. I'm looking to fully apply the technique tonight and get some lucid dreams.

ypm.
