Developing a new technique, need some volunteers
PostPosted: Thu 17 Jul, 2008  Reply with quote

I am developing a new technique called RILD. This stands for Repetition Induced Lucid Dream. How it works is that you do something repetitive before sleeping, and when you dream about it, you realise that you are dreaming.
Here is an example:
30 Minutes before going to bed, you click a pen repetitavely for those 30 minutes.

My problem is that I do not know how long before bed, and the amount of time doing the activity is needed for optimum results.

So I need 9 volunteers. Just reply to this and say that you are interested, and I will tell you when to try the technique and for how long.

Thankyou

that's a good idea

it will mostly be in NREM

i think, do it with WBTB, get up after 4 hours of sleeping and do

so it will be in REM instead of NREM

Eyelids, are you volunteering? or just commenting, im not sure.
kTFox, can you do RILD for 5 minutes, 1 hour before sleeping?
and blazinfish, can you do RILD for 10 minutes, 1 hour before sleeping?
and can you also report back what you did, and what happened in your dreams?

Muzzius:
You can have a choice between:
RILD for 30 minutes, 1 hour before bed, or:
RILD for 5 minutes, 45 minutes before bed.

Just tell me which you chose.

thankyou

No luck yet.

Excerpt taken from my DJ:

blazinfish wrote:
Tried Samsta2007's new RILD technique, found in this thread http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=480566#480566 but haven't found luck with it yet. I tried the pen method he mentioned. So for 10 minutes straight, an hour before I laid down in bed I clicked a pen, and repeated to myself that I would associate the pen clicking to RCs and would dream of clicking the pen, hopefully inducing a LD.

Small fragment of me talking to my friend Jason, and I mentioned to him that I had gotten back together with my old gf, and his response was very positive. Not sure what his actual reaction would be to the news IRL.

My alarm went off well after the dream had ended, I think, and I tried a little bit of WBTB and some WILD. No luck really.

Totally separate dream.
I was playing Hydro Thunder in an arcade with my younger cousin Austin, we both were racing with the Banshee boat. Nothing out of the ordinary there, we do that occasionally IRL when he comes to visit.


Let me know what you think, Samsta. If there is anything I should do differently, and if I should continue trying tonight as well.
Thanks.
