This sigil thing sounds pretty weird, but I might try it out once, since people have been getting great results with it in this thread.
Another inquiry then about manifestation, what of prayer? I think it could be the most powerful of all if someone has deep faith in who they are praying to (whomever they wish including their own self).
I know because all the really powerful manifestations are happening to a devout Christian I know, and she and others are basically living jobless via prayer manifestations. It is quite remarkable.
edit: I have crafted a mantra using the sigil technique which I will try for MILD.
My will is that it will very quickly bring me into the dreamstate upon falling asleep, rather than dozing off with the potential to lose consciousness, but I more or less practice MILD / WILD every night and generally am lucid every night that I really want to be.
My will is for this to greatly amplify lucidity.
Yes, holy reality. Some people use the Sigil process to create mantras, and they work as well.
Now prayer is really just using intention, belief, and a little delusion to get your desires. But you don’t see any Prayer-Induced Lucid Dreams, do you?
i think in Tibetan Dream yoga one can devote a prayer to a particular deity that represents clarity within deep sleep.
That’s a very nice deity to forge in the collective-unconscious.
Better than the crazy God in the Christian Old Testament. That dude was whack! Flooding the earth, plagues, that guy should’ve been fired a long time ago. He must have connections.
Keep up the Sigilwork everyone!
A question ~~ when crossing out repeated letters, do you leave the first letter and cross out all the remaining repeated letters, or cross out the orignial too. For example, I WILL LUCID DREAM, do you cross out the i in lucid or both the first I and also the i in lucid??
You keep one of each letter. In I WILL LUCID DREAM, you would have I WL UCD REAM
*I fixed the guide to be more clear on this part. Thanks a bunch for bringing that mistake to my attention, Ocean!
No wonder this hasn’t been working for me!
Sorry bout that, everyone!
the sigil thing didnt work for me some help plzzz! i did everything right… i thought… lol
Hasn’t worked for me either.
The gnostic state is wonderful though… when I do it I just feel like I could fall asleep right away.
If visual sigils aren’t exactly your cup of tea, you can take the letters and form a short mantra to repeat in your head. You can get creative with this, and just try many methods of S(igil)ILD to find one that works for you.
I had a mildly good LD using it last night, thanks for posting
Glad to assist you in your Lucid Adventures, cue5c. Don’t forget, you can make the Sigils even more specific and control the content of your NDs and LDs too.
damn NOTHING WORKS FOR ME!! GARGHHGHGHGH
A little positive thought never hurt anyone, Li.
I was really tired, and everyone was asleep so it was quiet, I did it about 20 minutes before I went to bed, and It worked like a charm (although I’m starting to think it was an FLD, but even if it was, it was still awesome). Keep trying, and you must, I repeat, YOU MUST believe it will work, or else it won’t.
I believe everything works for someone! This one sounds awesome, it’s been working for lots of people! I tried something similar last night: I crossed my fingers as I fell asleep, telling myself that because my fingers were crossed I would realise I was dreaming. That is the same as this, essentially - it’s just autosuggestion or willpower or something. I really believed it would work, but I didn’t remember any dreams when I woke up. I had that feeling, though, the feeling you have when you wake up after an LD. Do you guys know what I mean?
Do you guys get this feeling when you wake up after an LD? It’s like a weird feeling… you feel sort of calm, but happy. It’s hard to describe.
And Genkai, I wish I could be more positive, but it’s not me, I’m not a positive person!! damn. Can you make someone into a positive person? hmm
Li, there is a man called Derren Brown who is a master of NLP and he was able to modify a woman’s beliefs at will with one simple exercise.
You need to imagine the feeling you get when you know you can do something, like when you are sure that you will catch a pass in football, or sure that you’ll pass a test, and attach that feeling to what you are trying to do. For example, I combine the feeling I get before winning a game of Abalone with Lucid Dreaming. Difficult to explain, but very simple in practice. Here’s the Link:
