Been doing alot of reading on LDing lately and for the past 2 months I’d say have been trying off and on to get a LD.
Now… as far as I am able to recall the closest I’ve come was being in a dream and thinking for a second something was weird.
I’ve tried a few techniques, started with WBTB a few times but as well as wikipedias wild-esque technique. Now I’ve mostly been trying to WILD as it seems most effective for my lifestyle (up late, good sleep, early morning) so as this question has been probly asked a million times what could be possible flaws in my technique. Firstly Ill mention I keep no dream journal, would this greatly increase my chances? Cause im willing to spend 30 seconds writing every morning.
I dont have a complete understanding of WILDing but I think ive figured you relax, keep the mind focused untill HI then youll get into the dream world eventually if you succeed.
So Ill go to bed (Usually with a coke for the past hour or two beforehand, if that could be a factor) at about 12 (I wake up at 6 if it plays a factor again) and I’ll usually listen to some LeBarge relaxation audio files.
As far as focusing goes I’ll daydream and think about lucid dreaming a bit and say “I will realize im dreaming.” and sometimes the “1 im dreaming 2 im dreaming…”
Now everytime that I can remember I just fall asleep. HI is never more then very pointillistique (is that a word) grey on black background CEV’s as everyone has but I’ve never had anymore except in deep deep relaxation slight flashes of green-grey.
Sorry about the noobiness and long post. Any tips?
Edit: Lastly I do a few reality checks a day. 90% in the last 2-3 hours of night though which I beleive is totally failing.
