Interesting, I might give this a try. It reminds me of a few WILD’s I’ve had where I imagined myself touching something with my hands and then suddenly I can actually feel it, and from there it’s simple. When I did this it worked great. My problem was reaching the state of relaxation and calmness (or whatever) for it to become a vivid sensation… Maybe when I focus on my touch I get distracted and fall asleep quickly, and perhaps switching from one sense to another will help keep me focused… At the same time, when I MILD I repeat my mantra a few times and then just go to sleep as quickly as possible, which I understand you do with this technique as well, instead of repeating it until you fall asleep. So this might work for me.
Just to see if I got it right, I focus on what I see for a few seconds, then on what I hear, then on what I feel, over and over a few times. Then I just try to fall asleep.
If I get vivid images/sounds/touch, I should just focus on them and do a WILD (like I did a few times, as mentioned above)? And what If I get some sensations, but not that vividly, I just move on to the next step?
I think I’ve seen a SILD around, but I don’t remember what it was for (Sound-ILD?), or even if it got used a lot. Doesn’t make much of a difference to me…
and we’ve had lots of DreamViews users joining LD4all lately (for unfortunate reasons ), so welcome! and thanks for sharing this, I’m sure many more people will give it a try.
