I tried it yesterday, I always fell into that state of blackout while doing it, then I woke up and thought “shit, I have to visualize colors”.
Hey, I’ll try this tonight
Who knows, it might work
Yes, that’s what I did. Last night. It helped me to relax my body, eventually it fell asleep. But I wasn’t in a very comfortable position and my ear hurt. I also heard weird sounds coming from a distance. I wasn’t scared. Then I had this “click” and felt like my stomach had been pulled in from inside for a second or two. Now THAT was weird. I knew then that my body had fallen asleep. I waited for some more, but eventually got bored, cause nothing happened. I was supposed to be entering my dream.
ho ho, how funny we are
I think I’m going to try it tonight, so I’ll post in the morning my findings.
Yeah, my common sense is telling me to stick with what I know works rather than try a bunch of new things.
Last night, like I said, Ive been practicing this every night again. So last night I had one! It was great! I walked outside of my door knowing “ok Im dreaming” and immediately flew without any doubts I could fly, which felt awesome. I went up into the sky in front of my house, then spun around, looked around, everything was real looking, and stable. I made a very important mental note to realize “Im aware and dreaming” and to remember it. This technique delivers!
From what I can remember, I cycled through the colors at least 3 times, getting carried away here and there but I kept trying for as long as I could, imagining basketballs, cars, trees, all kinds of stuff. I’ve never gone STRAIGHT into an LD from this technique, but I sure have had LDs from it. My first one ever came from this technique… Keep up with it! If it works, post back your results.
Glad to hear it’s working for ya classical! I’m gonna keep up with it too, the results I got last night were good imo, though I didn’t get any lucid dreams. But I think I can try WILD with this.
But I have a question for you, classicalhisux. Did you repeat it (3 times)until you fell asleep? Or did you just go through it three times and then thought about other stuff until you fell asleep?
I tried, but I forgot about the order and lost lucidity.
But since it gets many good reviews from you guys, I think I’ll try again tonight.
I kept trying for as long as I could be aware, I remember making at least 3 full “cycles” then kept getting caught up in thoughts, but started over back at red a few times… I kept going for as long as I could…
Ok. Thanks for telling. I did the cycle a few times, I think it was three times as well. Then I got bored with it. Tonight I’ll do it over and over again.
I attempted it during a nap. I didn’t have one, but it put me in a state of mind and body that usually takes me a really long time to get to through meditation. Needless to say, I’m excited about this outcome. I’ll try it for a few nights and report again
I can tell you guys what I do, it keeps me very aware and very relaxed…
First: I rid of all thoughts on my mind, and see the color black. After I only see this darkness, I imagine the number eight and its two circles. Imagine a line deviding each of them. One of these circles is the Objective world, and one is the Subjective world. Tell yourself you want to enter the subjective world.
Second: With the colors, I find my mind doesn’t wander if I only imagine the full color, no material objects such as cars or trees. (It’s just a suggestion, you can do whatever you please ^^)
Third: You see the color red, focus on this color for roughly 10 seconds, and tell yourself, You are becoming closer and closer to a more peaceful state of mind. (Or whatever words work best for you) Take a deep breath in, and out. Then picture orange, you continue this process until you reach the color blue. Once you see blue, you should feel yourself floating, as if floating out of your body. You are surrounded by the universe and its millions of stars. You look down at the earth, and see all of the continents, and how they fit together as a puzzle. Then you look at yourself, see how you fit together as a puzzle, every part of you matters. (Though I guess you could skip this part, I just enjoy it ) Proceed, and picture the color green, purple, then violate. Then you see all white. And thus, in your alpha state ^^…Or I would hope you are.
I can’t gaurantee this will make WILDing all the easier ,but it does bring you into a very peaceful state of mind…at least for me it does.
Please tell me if this helps you out any, I would like to see if this works for anyone else.
I tried this last night and it didn’t work. Maybe because I visualized the colors too fast…?
I also didn’t think to cycle through the colors. I went once through and was bored of it.
Ne0, 1 cycle is probably not enough
I only fell asleep
Maybe I should try it at daytime instead?
I tried this (very briefly) and I really think it has potential. I noticed some HI came up whilst still on red. Then I just rolled over and went to sleep. It seems very promising though.
While doing the technique is one supposed to focus on the third eye while visiualizing the colors? Or does ‘mind’s eye’ simply mean to imagine it in your mind?
No there’s no need of focusing on the third eye. You just think of the red rose for example. When you think hard enough, you will see it. Not clearly, but in “mind’s eye”.
I don´t know, but I think this tecnique helped. But I had loots of vivid dreams, and got lucid for a few sec… And I´ve only had like 5 LD durig this year
And by the way, I dont´know if I´ve got this right, but is this tecnique a WILD method???
The Easy way to remember the cycle is ROY G BV, Roy G Bv, someones name, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet
EDIT: The most effective way is ROY G BIV Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
I tried this technique last night. I didn’t remember any dreams, but the technique was relaxing.
I think I probably visualized the colors too fast. I went through the spectrum several times. Actually I visualized coloured objects; A red tomato, orange underwear, a yellow lemon, green grass, blue sky and a violet flower. Somehow it was rather relaxing.
In one cycle though, I suddenly felt weird. At some color, I suddenly felt something like a light tingle throughout my whole body really fast and I felt lighter for a moment. I also felt as if a second me was inside a long shaped box, slightly above me, but still overlapping my actual body. I could feel the bed but I also felt this weird… feeling.
It’s funny because I’m used to feeling heavy and paralyzed. This time I was feeling light and I wasn’t paralyzed.
I’m going to try this again tonight. Let’s see if I can get further.
