I’m trying WILD, and I have some doubts about the hypnagogic state.
After using some auto-hypnosis tracks from (Stephen Laberge I guess?) about developing a better memory, it became easier to relax and I started to notice the hypnagogic state, as the tracks have exercises for relaxation.
I haven’t LD’d yet, though, and I had never been through the imagery (no sounds, no hallucinations).
The last time I tried, I could see full scenes, with sound, but it was people talking, and it wasn’t much vivid. Also, the sound was kinda low, not loud sounds like explosions, paper being ripped, etc… and the images are always like creative things that made me think “damn, thats’ nice!”. The scenes lasted about 1 or 2 seconds, and they were for example, a dinning table full of people talking.
So I thought it could be the last hypnagogic state and tried to “roll” or fall from the bed, but nothing happened, and my lower body wasn’t very asleep.
What I want to ask is, was I on the right way ?
