I will try this out, it's very interesting, I menage to enter in dreams with specific people in it but that was mostly in early morning hours, and those were people that I know very well, I suppose that's way is important to know very well dream scene that you want to enter, nevertheless this technique needs much dedication and determination, this could be combined with DEILD I believe...

Peace!

I am curious, if I just visualize me running through a tunnel non-stop, without being a constant repeating thought in which I do a reality check, with something painted on the tunnel walls like "YOU ARE DREAMING!", can I get a lucid dream?

And can VILD cause frightening experiences like WILD? Thanks.

VILD is about visualizing the same scenario over and over until it incubates itself into a dream whereas what you are describing is WILD with visualization as a focus. With that kind of WILD, you keep yourself aware with your imagination but it's easy enough to lose yourself in your daydream, hence the mandatory RC at the end of the VILD scenario. Ugh, I'm not being very clear. It's a blurry line between the two sometimes, but a pure VILD as its creator intended really is based on the repetition.

I assume you mean sleep paralysis and HH as the frightening experiences? It's not as likely with VILD since you're basically daydreaming yourself to sleep, but those things don't even have to happen in WILD. In either case, doing these techniques later at night or in the morning will greatly reduce the chances of SP.

I just assumed I could have frightening experiences because I am concentrating on the vizualisation while relaxing my body, which is very alike to WILD, since I'm relaxing my body I would end up in SP. But guess not, I'm very good at vizualisation, the bad thing about this method for me is that as I am falling asleep vizualising gets harder.

They can be somewhat similar since they both involve going straight into a dream, but WILD intentionally tries to get the body to fall asleep first. Even still, it doesn't have to happen that way. There has only been one time I've WILD'ed and experienced SP. But I digress, there's nothing to fear about VILD, it just takes a little practice. Oh, and since I just noticed, welcome to LD4all ^^

I don't really get why you shouldn't change the dream that you incubate... i mean, you can try 1 dream for a few nights and maybe try another, to see wich one works... why shouldn't be changed ever?
