So it’s almost 1 a.m. here. I decided to ask for suggestions , get as much help as possible before trying WILD again.
Can a dream occur right after you go into deep sleep?
What’s your best method for telling your mind to calm down and accomplish what it’s trying to do?
My mind is always thinking, never calm, I’ll come up with the most random information at the most random times. The thing is, ever since 2nd grade ( I remember 2nd grade don’t know if it really was 2nd grade ) , I’ve had a tendency to talk in my head to myself. He’s name is Drake (Thus the reason I use the nick-name online), my friend (only person in the world who’ve I told this to) says it’s my conscious that I’m talking to. I thought that all they did was make you feel good/bad not help you solve problems like mine does. I don’t know if I should aim to work with him or aim to shut him down while I try to sleep.
Also I have tried two WILDs. Both of them I got to the point where I couldn’t feel anything in my body (My hands were on top of each other and I couldn’t feel either all I could feel was the rhythm of my breathing). The first time, I tried to shut down Drake, the 2nd time, I tried to work with him. Both ended in failure. It felt like I was in that state of no feeling for about 5 minutes both times. Then they both failed.
I have high motivation , and I’m still trying to figure out whether or not I am a fast sleeper, because I feel that if I put my mind to it I can change from either sleeping instantly or to sleeping calmly. I don’t know, like I said before, my mind never rests.
