Mr. Happy, thanks for the encouragement but up untill now, I still haven't been successful. I started jotting down my dreams though and I think somehow it's helping. But I haven't given up yet and I'll give it another try. Oh yeah, the meditation part, isn't it time consuming? I actually never did any meditations . I just lay in bed, close my eyes and start to visualize, but nada. Guess I'll try that too.

Don't focus on the eyes, the HI are in your minds eye, where you imagine things.


Oh so does that means that images don't acutally appear on the eyelids but rather appears somewhere which is in this case the mind? I know it's absurd thinking those images appear on the eyelids, the inside I mean, because if that's the case then somehow it could be possible for others to see what your dreaming. But unlike Toy Master, I tend to focus on my eyelids which makes me think that the swirly bits that I see are the cells of my eyelids or something similar. I don't know but somehow it seems to focus on its own especially when my eyes starts swaying, or starts going through REM(I think) and once again halts from movement bringing me back to reality. Is this normal or am I not relaxed enough? Also I find it hard not to focus on my body. It just shifts from my thoughts to my body, back and forth.

Sorry for my uhm annoying questions but I really want to feel the sensation of being aware in a dream that I am dreaming.

How do I resist the urge to think of today's events?
I've tried breathing control, focus on mantra, clearing mind, incubation, but it all leads to something tiny triggering my memory of something.

Actually, I bet I could MILD, too. I recited a mantra, "I will wake up at 2:00 AM" and stuff like that... and it worked! (All three days I tried it, too!)

Mine are more like "I will go to sleep at 2:00 AM. If there's nothing else to do." wink

Chyeah, right after score_under! *victory dance*

Ok, so I think I might have managed to WILD, but I'm not quite sure... I wasn't exactly 100% aware, and I think it might fall more under the definition of another technique... feedback would be much appreciated!

This morning, I got up around 7:30 (later than usual for a monday, but still early in my book) and went to church, then ate breakfast and played some video games. I was initially irritated that I couldn't do a proper WBTB, so I waited until about 10:30, then went back to sleep to attempt a nap WILD.

My first attempt failed, and I ended up having stressful dreams about my job. After waking up, I willed myself not to move, and tried to visualize myself climbing a set of stairs. As it became more real, I think I may have felt something along the lines of a cool shiver along my body... I can't really remember. Once I realized that i was fully in the dream, I ran to the top of the stairs only to find lucidity fading. Instead of trying to prolong it, I pulled a small experiment. I waved my arm frantically as my vision faded; as I slowly came back to reality, I forced my eyes open, still trying to wave my arm... my arm wasn't moving initially, even though I could feel it!

Waking up after that, I definitely felt a shiver. Continuing with the idea, I kept still and tried to visualize... this time though, it was much more like chaining, as I just tried to re-create the scene and jump back into it. I pulled this a few more times over the next hour and a half, but I ended up having to stop after a few of my siblings decided to have an argument where I was sleeping cry .

Sooo.... was the first time anything close to a WILD? If not, what sort of WILD tech would you recommend for me? (Each LD was incredibly easy to attain for me this morning, and I probably could've had more).

It very much reminds me of this tech

It's also chaining when you managed to come back into your dreams over and over.



Current LD goal(s): Short term goal: Practise WILD. Long term goal: Achieve lucidity at will.

yea i do something exactly like that in the mornings but i imagine a lady is with me,
now this is just a habit, the interactions are not pleasurable or anything like that
its a bad habit ! but it gets me into sp and lucid, i suppose its like making her my etheric body.

Haha, eyelids, you intrigue me. Well, I haven't managed to repeat the experience yet because of school, but we'll see how it goes this weekend.
