There’s one other thing I’ve just thought I would like to amend on here. It seems a lot of the new dreamers out there feel that if they get WILD to work it will be their main technique and they will have hundreds of LD’s. Also gonna put this in with the first post.
WILD is the only technique you need to have LD’s every night
Here’s the thing, no technique is guaranteed to work 100% of the time. Why limit yourself to just one tool? Make an entire toolbox to have at your disposal depending on what your situation is. Even if you do get WILD working, you should also look in to other techniques like MILD, DEILD and VILD.
I’m going to use Wyvern as a quick example for my point here. I was talking to him in IRC the other day, and we were talking about WILD. For those of you who don’t know, he’s about 20 LD’s away from having 1000, so he’s pretty experienced when it comes to LD’s. By his estimate, only about 10-15% of his LD’s have actually come from WILD. Most of his others come from DILD because he has trained himself to be aware and recognize the dream state.
I’m currently at 103 LD’s (about 87 of those in the last year alone). Again, only up to 20% have actually come from WILD. The rest have been RCILD, MILD, DEILD, VILD, DILD and even one CALD. This is a pretty broad array of techniques, and while I am no master yet, I still manage to have a good number of LD’s.
WILD is great to know, but never overestimate the value of any technique.
