Hi!!
I tried the U WILD Technique for about two weeks and have had some interesting results.
When I first started I noticed that i was recalling more of my dreams and really started filling up my dream journal. The other day when I got up at around 3:30 in the morning I tried again and visualized all sorts of object scenes and events. I noticed the paralysis stage and kept visualizing and certain enough the images became clearer and clearer till finally I realized I was actually dreaming. It was an incredible experience hurray
I will continue with this technique and let everyone know how it progresses.

Thanks Reaper for introducing me to U-WILD!!
Wow nice job. Keep practising and update us please.

This is a great thread *Reaper*. This is the first time I've seen this and I like your guides they are so detailed. I've been trying to MILD but I think I'm gravitating back towards WILD. While it's harder to master it's better once you have. I've been going nowhere with MILD I might eventually get a DILD. My problem with MILD is it decreases my dream recall and keeps me up.

Well anyways I tried WILD yesterday before I even saw this topic and I feel I made some real progress. I did the thing where you make HI instead of just waiting for it to happen. I just thought of random images and forced my mind to process the information faster and faster where I couldn't think of enough images as fast as my mind was going so it just kinda went on autopilot and I got some good HI but I couldn't maintain it.

The best part is no WBTB is necessary because that's what I want. Anyways I might have been close to SP or something because my body started to feel like it was floating and then there was this really loud jarring sound from the waking world which totally blew my concentration and brought me back to reality.

Sounds that aren't loud but constant like a TV your brain will eventually override so you don't hear it but that screwed me up. And then I tried to start over again and then I had to cough really bad but I tried to keep it in and the eventually I just coughed and my eyes instinctively opened so I said screw it I'll try again tomorrow.
Anyways I'll try U-WILD.

I achieved another LD using U-WILD last night! I really enjoy using this technique and it's my official second WILD this year.

I have learned that when you visualize your images, DON'T use just any random pictures. Fully concentrate on specific images that happend the "previous day." This gets the mind to focus while the body falls asleep. I have found that if you use any general image like a cat, or car etc. you will fall asleep.

Using this technique I did receive quite a few Lucid flashes over the last few weeks. Basically I was aware for a brief second, then I would fall asleep or wake up. I never counted them as Lucid Dreams though.

If you want to read my dream just look for Mr.Happy's Dream Time Adventures in my Signature.

I've tried WILDing but I haven't had any luck. Do you guys swallow when you feel like it whenever your attempting to WILD or do you just let it be? It' s really been a hassle because whenever I try, my mouth just ends up drying and I don't really know if I should swallow or not because it might lose my focus but I end up swallowing anyway.

I've been trying for almost a week now and I'm still getting nothing. As in I haven't really seen any HI(or maybe I don't know how to recognize one) and I'm actually losing hope. I'm starting to doubt that it's real but I know I'm wrong because there are lots of accounts that validates its authenticity.

Don't lose hope, just be patient and let it come to you. Don't worry about swallowing. If you have to swallow, just swallow and focus on the images in your mind. If you have a dry throat make sure you have a glass of water before you go to sleep.
If you don't have any success that night please don't stress out about it and get yourself upset. Again it is all about patience and perseverence. It may take some time but you "WILL" WILD.
I have been trying this technique for over 2 months and have only been successful twice. So hang in there, commit yourself to a DJ and use the WBTB in combination with WILD. It will happen, it may be tonight, it may be next month but you will WILD.

Good Luck!

Oh okay then I guess I won't give up till' I reach my goal. Thanks a lot for clearing up my swallowing problem ^.^ to think that I've restrained myself from swallowing xD

Is a DJ really necessary? I didn't bother making one since no one really cares for privacy here >.< and I'm able to recall my dreams easily. As for WBTB, I couldn't use that technique either since I share rooms and bed with my parents and my brother. I guess WILD is my only hope huh.

Absolutely! Even if you can recall your dream easily it is still a great idea to have a DJ. What this does is create a commitment to remembering your dreams. When you are more committed, your dreams will appear more clearly and be more frequent. Additionally, it is a good way to keep track of all your dreams so if you want to look back and see any similarities or possible messages you can.

If you are worried about privacy I do believe you can purchase diaries with a lock on them so noone can read it.

The best way around this is to make sure you have a tall glass of water before you go to bed. Then in the middle of the night you can go to the bathroom and then go back to bed to try the U-WILD. This way you don't have to wake anyone up with alarms. I naturally wake up to go to the bathroom anyway, but I know what you mean because my wife really appreciates her sleep and I'd hate to wake her up.

Hope this helps.

At first I was pretty confused as to what this meant, but I get it now. I've only ever done this to get in touch with my SG. I'll have to try it some time just to have fun! I never thought of doing that. I'll let you guys know how it goes once I try. Sadly today is not a day of easy meditation, as I have three exams. I'll definitely need it tomorrow, though.

Well, after one night, I almost had an LD. I felt SP come over me, but I couldn't get into the dream. I did every that the UF-WILD said to do. Do you guys (and gals) have any advice on actually getting in the dream?

You are getting close! Keep flashing the images in your mind and keep them short. Remember also to be patient, the dreams will come.

Thanks, I think that may be the problem, they were kind of long images. I'll try it again tonight.

Ah I'm glad people found this again, this method like I said months ago is very powerfull, creating HI by will is far more effective than waiting for you mind to do it, also because you control it at first it decides how the later automated HI will be so no unpredicable HI will appear, I still highly recommend this method to everyone, WILD is the most effective way to induce LD by will, and this method simplifies it without lossing it effect.

The meditations really boosted my DR the other night (and I didn't even meditate for the suggested amount of time... hehehe).

I think a big problem with me is blinking... y'know... with closed eyes. I don't know how to stop doing that. lachtraan I'd be grateful if anyone had some advice for that.

Don't focus on the eyes, the HI are in your minds eye, where you imagine things. Eventually, you get so attatched with the HI that you actually forget about your senses, your body fails to exist. It's just your minds eye that you only exist in.
