My name is stormbreaker and I’m 15 years old. I’ve been trying to get lucid dreams for only a week, but I’m very motivated indeed to get them. However, I’ve bumped into a problem. I’m currently trying the Wild technique, and I’ve been making more progress with it then any other technique, but there is a recurring problem preventing me from actually dreaming.
You see, I’ve found that I can enter sleep paralysis (not complete, I can move if I really try, but it restrains me mostly and I have the tingling feeling)and I can get into a state where I see HP imagery from time to time and I barely feel my body except for some swallowing cause of slimes in my nose getting into my mouth. However, whenever I realize I’ve been having HP imagery it goes away, and I can’t seem to actually enter a dreamstate. I can get very close, but not quite achieve them. Now I find this very frustrating for two reasons:
- When I really want to dream, lucid or not, I have to get out of the sleep paralysis state I’m in, do something else for a while, and then return and just fall asleep, without being concious.
- When I do this, I have the strange sensation of being physically rested, but not mentally. I find myself actively craving a dream.
Do you have any advice on how to actually enter the dreamstate fully, without it falling apart?
