Truly mastering lucid dreaming - Blog | The last few days I have been focussing on recalibrating my sleep schedule: prioritizing healthy sleep. I have also attempted to implement the first stepping stones towards proper dream recall. I aimed at noting down dreams throughout the night and to journal them in full length the same evening. The first day of training, I had an unintended WILD, demonstrating the power of auto-suggestion of even starting (and thinking about) inducing lucid dreams. I should not celebrate too early though. In my terms, true lucid dream skill is reliable and consistent, across multiple weeks or months. A truly skilled lucid dreamer is able to have lucid dreams on command. I have now set my eyes on reclaiming that same skill level, but this time in context of an everyday life, including work, meeting friends and family. Something that I still need to perfect in the upcoming days before progressing to new exercises, is the principle of noting down dreams throughout the night. Okay, now adding a new one:

Hyper Lucid Dreaming Infinite Minds - Lucid Dreaming - How to Lucid Dream: Wake Induced Lucid Dreams (WILD) Wake Induced Lucid Dreams, or WILDs as they are more commonly known, are the holy grail of lucid dreamers. Variations on the WILD technique have been used by Tibetan monks for over a thousand years. It is one of the most powerful lucid dreaming techniques, and mastering it will allow you to have lucid dreams on demand. In short a WILD is exactly what it sounds like; a lucid dream you induce directly from your normal waking state. Since you do not need to become unconscious at any stage you are in complete conscious control of the process, and there is no need to rely on your subconscious to prompt or trigger you into lucidity. In truth ‘WILD’ is more of a category of lucid dreaming technique rather than one specific approach, WILD techniques can be so wide and varied that they could never be covered in a single article. There are however a few common elements, I have included these into a guide for a basic WILD technique: Step 1 – When Should I Try to WILD? Step 2 – Relax & Set the Scene

◦WILD - The Guide To End All Guides - Dreamviews lucid dreaming There's three different tutorials in this one topic, the way this works is that you read through the post just like normal until you come the method selection section, you can either go with the "concentration induced WILD" , "The Third Eye Technique", or go all freestyle on my ass and use the "Make your own method- method". If you want to review the three techniques now then Click Here Or just continue reading and choose later " class="inlineimg" /> WILDs are very strange things... sometimes you'll fall directly into the dreamstate like 10-20 minutes after starting, and other times it can take a good 2 hours to begin to actually enter a dream. Keep in mind that very rarely will two WILDs be exactly the same. I'll label these in steps. 8365 <--for the breathing method or 6952 <--for the third eye method 8245 <--for the make your own method- method When your LD ends wake up, and DO NOT GO BACK TO SLEEP, no matter what. Q) How do I know when I should begin WILDing after my 5-7 hrs of sleep?

How To Avoid These Two MAJOR Lucid Dreaming Mistakes!! | Lucidology A question I got which touches on two common mistakes: You know when you say I am supposed to stay awake and convince my body to go to sleep. First of all once I roll the whole lead blanket feeling vanishes. And then I will try to keep my mind awake and resist the movement urges but my body just won’t switch off, all I get is headaches. A lot of people wonder, why does “stop, drop and roll” involve moving your arms and rolling over if the whole trick to getting into waking sleep paralysis is to stay perfectly still? SDR is really about getting rid of the last bits of muscle tension. So if the final roll stage messes it up then don’t roll. The second mistake is a huge one that I have to repeat a lot. Don’t try to keep your mind awake!!! *****Just fall completely asleep and let the timer make you become lucid Let me repeat that again. When you’re using the Lucidology 101 methods, do NOT try to stay awake when you’re relaxing into a wake-induced lucid dream!!

Is There Life After Death? | Does Heaven Exist? | What Happens When You Die? In a new exercise by a California organization that studies lucid dreaming, volunteers have been conditioned to dream near-death experiences, including the classic scenario of flying toward a light at the end of a tunnel. The researchers say their experiment demonstrates that these heavenly visions must be products of the human mind rather than supernatural phenomena. In the sleep experiment at the Out-Of-Body Experience Research Center in Los Angeles, four groups of 10 to 20 volunteers were trained to perform a series of mental steps upon awakening during the night that might lead them to have out-of-body experiences. If able to "separate" from their bodies, they were then conditioned to try dreaming about floating through a tunnel toward a bright light. Eighteen of the volunteers said they were able to dream such an experience. More than 8 million Americans have had a near-death experience, and they most often occur during states of anesthesia-induced sleep, according to the center.

The Secret Posture for Triggering Wake Initiated Lucid Dreams and Out-of-Body Experiences A few years ago, I took a flight from Atlanta back to my home in San Francisco. I was sleep deprived after a late night out with old friends. The afternoon I arrived home, I drove down to Ocean Beach and took a nap in the car, leaving the window open for the ocean breeze. My seat was reclined most of the way and I fell asleep on my back. I instantly slipped into sleep paralysis. The feeling of sleep paralysis is like being stuck in the threshold between sleep and wakefulness, and can trigger intense fear if you have never experienced it before. I kicked myself out of my perceptual body and began drifting down a dark river. It was dark and quiet. I relaxed, looking at the lights of stars overhead. This nap vision didn’t occur randomly. This nap vision didn’t occur randomly. Posture not only can increase the likelihood of out-of-body experiences, but it can bring on some rich lucid dreams too, particularly wake-initiated lucid dreams (WILD) in which you fall asleep and maintain awareness.

◦WILD - The Five Phases Of WILD - Dreamviews lucid dreaming foru Wake Initiated Lucid Dream, or WILD, has been called the Holy Grail of lucid dreamers. It is a powerful, yet somewhat elusive technique. Imagine, being able to pass from waking into a lucid dream with no lapse in consciousness, or being able to have a lucid dream every night! It is no wonder so many people are interested in learning to WILD. Many questions have been asked about WILD and much information has been shared on the forum about it. This tutorial is an attempt to guide you, step by step as you learn to WILD using techniques I have learned from personal experience and from reading posts on this and other websites. This tutorial is far from being a comprehensive guide, but does contain the basics and some pointers that will help you learn to WILD. If you feel any of this is in error, or have anything suggestions on how this tutorial can be improved, please contact me.
