I have excellent dream recall and have learned to induce lucid dreams at will with MILD.

About the special dream places:
Isn't it also funny how simple places and situations can have so much more meanings in dreams that in real life. Just the simple act of walking through some woods to an old railway station and then get a ride out into the countryside, but it all means a great deal in the dream.

I think that's because our state of mind ignores fear when dreaming. You know its a dream, and you have control, so you can absorb the moment entirely, which is what LD'ing is all about.

Lucid_Adventurer,

I have heard that it's best to stay up for at least a half hour. At least for the WBTB technique, that's what is recommended. If you use MILD in conjunction with WBTB, I bet you would be able to focus better on your mantras. I'm no professional, but that's what has worked for me the best. I also have trouble focusing in the wee hours of the morn. It's also supposed to work better if you do something active with your mind, like read. Sorry I cant offer more info. Good luck, good dreaming...

This technique is my best way to get lucid dreams, I used to do it before I slept and it worked sometimes but now I wake up 6 hours afterwards and do the technique, it is quite good.

Hey Lucidity_Master I know that this is an old post of yours, but I was just wondering how you perform the MILD technique?

It has been the most successful technique for me so far, but I only get about 3 lucid dreams a month, so it's not all that successful. So I was thinking that since you can do it at will, perhaps you have some techniques that might be helpful.

ypm.

The first thing I do is use the 61 piont relaxation to get my mind and body relaxed.

Then I pretty much go to sleep and say "The next time I am dreaming I want to remember to recognizethat I'm dreaming. From my personal experienbce and everything I have read it is the remembering to recognize that really seems to help the technique.

The same time I'm saying the mantra I imagine myself finding a dreamsign and becoming lucid. Then I continue as if I am Lucid and after a while start the visualization over with the SAME dreamsign (usually flying).

It took my about two months of HARD work before my mind got used to it but after that getting Lucid become quite easy.

Hope this helps , persevere and good luck!!!

Hye Lucidity_Master,

I will be sure to try that since you have had such positive results, thanks for the post.

I will be sure to post my results on this forum.

Just another quick question (and hopefully not too off topic) have you noticed any increased familiarity in recognizing the dream state? Do you still need to perform this technique or is it more nature now.

ypm.

That's a very good question. I'd like to know that too!

I've been trying to LD for a month & 1/2 now. I have been using MILD as much as possible without luck...I'm hoping at the two month mark I'll start to see results too smile

I've only ever tried MILD a few times, I'm not a very patient person...I prefer to just wait for my LD 's to come naturally...but this morning I woke up naturally after about seven hours sleep, I was completely awake, but I knew that if I got up straight away after only that amount of sleep I'd be really tired later in the day, so I stayed awake for half an hour (trying to stay awake is the best way to fall asleep lol) and then I thought well why not try WILD again...I layed completely still for about half an hour, nothing happening, except the occasional kind of...I don't know memory? Vision? Of me moving my arms and thinking damn, now I have to start again (I could actually feel my arms moving, but I never had), so anyway, I thought, I might as well think "The next time I dream I will know that I'm dreaming" a few times while I'm falling asleep, It can't hurt. Whenever I've done MILD before, I've either done it as I'm first going to sleep, or when I've set my alarm after 6 hours and gone back to sleep as I've been told to by this site lol...they didn't work. But this morning, I had a series of LD 's and FA 's, it was really cool, it was also the first time I've ever remembered to do a RC in a dream and have it work (the only other time, I wasn't at all lucid, it was just part of the dream so it didn't work). I'm gonna do this again tommorrow morning!

3 months with MILD and nothing to show for it yet. Is MILD over hyped as a method of LD induction or are some of us just LD deficient?

How long do you MILD every attempt? What is your mantra?
