I’ve been trying to do WILD some time now. I think I managed to do one this morning, but I’m not sure whether is was WILD or a normal LD.
My alarm went off after about 5 hours of sleep. I went out of bed, had a drink, en went back in for WBTB/WILD. I had some trouble getting back to sleep at first, but then I noticed the vibrations started. Normally when this happens I get too excited and wake myself up to a point where I can’t fall asleep. But this time I remained my calm, allthough I did notice that I was thinking of something completely different, and got drawn back to my WILD attempt because of the vibrations. I then started to hear voices. I had expected the voices to be something scary, but it was normal. I tried to listen to them but it was like someone was talking in another room, so I could not hear it clear. I tried to focus on the images, but I did not get many. After I laid still for another couple of minutes, it occurred to me that I might already be asleep.
I opened my eyes and I was in my bedroom. For some reason the lights where on, but that did not strike me as odd. I did a nose RC, and it worked. I realized I was dreaming, but I was still very doubtful as to if it where a dream or RL. I did a couple more breathes to my closed nose, and a jump in the air. Then I realized I was dreaming, but I was not able to get a very clear picture, it was very hard for me to concentrate, unlike in some other LDs I had, the picture was very blurry. I was not able to maintain and then woke up, I think the experience lasted only a couple of minutes.
Was this a successful WILD attempt or was this a normal LD? If this was a WILD, how can I prolong it or successful create a dreamscape instead of getting LD in my bedroom and waking up so quick? I have read all the guides and about everything around here, but maybe based on my above story one could give some more personalized advise?
Thanks in advance and happy dreaming
