I just tried SSILD for the first time this week.

I went to bed around midnight, woke up at 3:40 because of the heavy rain making a huge noise, I ran outside to get my clothes off the window. After 5 Minutes I went back to bed and thought It was actually the perfect time to try.
I started to do the different cycles and felt asleep once I was done.

==> Long LD for the first try with this technique, I will try again later.

I described SSILD to a coworker today, mostly as a relaxation technique, because she has trouble falling asleep in time. A lucid dream for her would be a bonus. Her reply was "That sounds exhausting!"

Isn't that the point? I especially find it hard to stay awake and focused through the sight phase. I haven't used it much myself for lucid dreaming, because it interferes with the visualisation technique I usually use, but it works quite well for falling asleep.

The night before last, I tried to use SSILD. I woke up at 3:30, stayed up 10 minutes, then got back into bed and closed my eyes. I started a cycle, but my mind got distracted fast because my thoughts were everywhere at once. I couldn't even get through a single cycle without being interrupted. Eventually, my mind slipped and I woke up the next morning with no lucid dreams.

Last night was very different. I stayed up for only 5 minutes, so I was more sleepy when I got into bed. I did the warm-up cycles to get into the flow, and I was relaxed enough to concentrate on my senses. I slipped into a dream. In that dream, my eyes were closed. I heard nothing, saw nothing, and yet I knew immediately became lucid. I got out of bed (since I expected myself to be in my bedroom). But after that, I lost lucidity, unfortunately.

It seems like I'm making progress at least, so thanks!



Current LD goal(s): Lucid dream at least once a week and maintain those dreams for at least 10 minut

Great technique.
I tried this last night and had a LD. It was excited.
I'm going to use this technique more.

Thank you!

I just read about your technique and it sounds very interesting! I also like the Chinese name for it (how is it pronounced in chinese? im learning japanese so the kanji are not so mysterious anymore haha)

Anyway it sounds very interesting and I will definetly try it! Im also not a big fan of WILD so staying awake just for some minutes like using the bathroom etc sounds good for me.

I will keep an eye on the tutorial and techniques! I want to see how it develops in the future or how people use it/how it works for others^^
