I used to be able to lucid dream fairly regularly. I also used to be able to sleep whenever I felt like it. In the past couple of years I have struggled with insomnia as well as sleep paralysis.
Since I often notice in the past year that I am half awake I thought, hey this would be a great time to try the WILD technique. In the past I had never tried Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming. I had always realized within my dream that I was dreaming because things seemed off.
I was so tired by the time I tried to sleep that I forgot to even try WILD. I take medication to help me sleep and it had kicked in and basically I laid down and I was off to snoozeville.
I’m thinking that if I go to bed earlier, like right after I take my pills that the WILD technique might work better for me. Anyway, I had no lucid dreams but I had a nice night of rest so I can’t complain.
