Okay, this isn’t really a new technique, but I wanted to make sure everyone would read my post. I haven’t seen anyone present it as a “primary” lucid induction technique, though, so I guess it’s kinda new. Plus it’s a neat name, isn’t it? Much better than all these -ILDs we have floating around…
Anyway, what you do is go to bed, not even worrying about having a lucid dream. Instead, focus on not moving at all when you awaken. Don’t open your eyes, don’t lift your head, don’t do anything. When you wake up, you can’t move at all; stillness should be instinctive.
From this point, you should be able to get into a lucid dream without much trouble. For me, it’s like floating in a black void, and all I have to do is imagine a little bit and a dream forms in front of me. Reapeating that I’m dreaming probably helps too. Once your lucid dream is over, you should be able to get several more through the same not-moving stuff. So far, the longest chain I’ve had was about 7 lucid dreams, but 3 is probably a safer number… Get too greedy and you might lose lucidity.
So, to sum this all up…
- Have a dream.
- Wake up and don’t move.
- Have a lucid dream. Improvise!
- Go back to step 2.
Now, the reason I’m posting this is because it’s a much different mindset than the normal LD techniques, and so it might work well for people who’ve been not-overly-successful with other methods. If you’re new to lucid dreaming, don’t try this. Try the well known and established methods instead (napping, reality checks, etc). But, if you’ve been practicing for a year or two without much success, then by all means give it a go.
