Yay! I did it!
Hopefully, with more experience Ill be able to help others trying to WILD with more helpful tips, but for now I’m excited and can just tell you about my experience this morning.
So I woke up today after about 8 hours sleep–i didn’t set my alarm. I’ve been trying to WILD every morning with no success. I had some tranquil music playing.
I found myself in darkness. I don’t remember feeling a transition at all, but I knew I was dreaming. As I learned to do here and at the other site, I rubbed my hands together and tried to visualize a place. I also yelled “Clarity now!” but I don’t think that helped much. Eventually soon I was in a restaurant and I found some old friends and sat with them. I rubbed my hands on the table and even took a sip from a glass of water (wow!). A waitress made an announcement about some kind of tragedy, and I decided to get up and leave, so as not to waste my time.
As I walked out I rubbed my hands together, but the dream started to fade. I spun around to try to stabilize but it was no use. I think the problem was that I heard a song (IRL) end–it had been playing in the restaurant.
When I woke up I was desperate to do it again! I turned off the radio, I relaxed, stayed still and felt the SP after a while. I let it ride out while staying aware. As it subsided, my external hearing shut off and I heard a “Swoosh!” like wind and white light of a camera flash. Again, I found myself in blackness. I rubbed my hands, yelled for clarity, and just woke up in my bed.
However, when I did the nose pinch test, I was shocked to know I was dreaming! I got up and opened my front door. There was a bowl of cat food on the porch and it was evening in the neighborhood. I think i may have been scared to go out because I came back in the house and walked around. I said “Hello?” and “Only good energies, please!” LOL.
I had another bout of SP, in which I tried to ‘roll out’ and ended up in darkness again. But i don’t think anything came of it.
I’m just so glad. Now maybe I can focus on how to prolong and accomplish things. From this first WILD success, I learned that I likely need silence to do it. I finally know what the transition feels like. And I’m less afraid and more curious and excited to learn things and develop more control.
