SSILD (2.0) Tutorial

I had the same problem as mattias,
These quick cycles should help me, i usally didn’t go further than hearing :smile:.

The only success i have recorded with this technique was 3 LD’s in a row (really vivid ones). I did a long WBTB before (around 40 minutes)
Do you really need to get up or is staying in bed ok?

You don’t have to get up although that may not be the best way to do it. If you choose to not get up, chances are your first attempt will not yield much result. However, that’s not a bad thing because your mind/body will be in a much more “optimized” condition anyway. You will almost always wake up again after this. Just remember to stay still and do another round of SSILD cycles. This time you will likely run into some intense HIs. Another trick which I use a lot is this – do some cycles (without getting up) and fall asleep; upon waking up again, immediately relax the head and allow it to sink into the pillow while focusing on the ears. With practice, doing so can give you instant WILD. The conditioning power of SSILD is so great that this trick works even when sometimes we forgot to stay still and moved.

Good luck! Just remember, don’t do it without first getting sufficient sleep! :smile:

Yes the short steps is a major improvement over the old versions. Try it and you will not be disappointed. :razz:

Thanks, I’ll try this out and keep you up on any success :smile:

seems like an interesting technique
i didn’t see it the first time around, so I guess I’ll give it a shot (especially since i still have to find something that works well enough for me, since almost all my previous LD have been rather spontaneous, or caused by a mixture of various techniques :content: )

It has been slightly more than a year and half since this technique was first developed and deployed to a large audience. So far I’ve collected many thousands of success stories from people all over the world. I’m confident this is a technique that will work for you. If it doesn’t work the first time, just keep at it and you will be awarded soon enough. Good luck!

Cool I will have to try this, it sounds really easy. I’ve actually done this before, I just pretty much watch myself fall asleep.

I don’t get how I can go to sleep so excited to do this and LD then wake up in the middle of the night all “ugh too much effort back to sleep.”
I need to wake up more.

I get it… You need more sleep. That’s it. LOL

I’ve tried doing it later in my sleep cycle, still doesn’t work.
I sleep for around 10 or 11 hours every day, too.

Actually, I always do this before going to sleep. It is necessary for me to do. If I don’t do it, I’ll keep being distracted by noises, thoughts etc. It might also just be me (I have ADD(that rhymes)) :wink:
I didn’t really call it SSILD since I did not know it existed. For me, it was just like some sort of relaxing method. When I wake up in the middle of the night, I tend to do WILD instead of doing SSILD again. Most likely because I can get to sleep very easely once I woke up.

I’ve always wanted to try this properly. This new thread makes me want to again!

I tried this the day before yesterday.
I did it once before, but not properly, so I only got a semi vivid LD.
This time I tried doing it step by step, and stayed calm and didn’t expect anything, nothing happened after two or three dreams until I entered the same dream again! (Is that normal?)
I was in a weird school, noticed it was similar to another dream and checked. LD from then on!

Entering the same dream may not be SSILD’s doing, but the technique does increase your awareness and reasoning capabilities within a dream so you can catch the anomalies.

It was a vague at-best LD, so maybe it was a fluke. Nevertheless I’m going to use this technique more.

Wow I love this tech, I have done the new one twice, the first time I had a really vivid fa and the second night I had another fa bit realized it was a dream, it was a really low level LD but I still can’t believe it, LD on the second try, ihope my success with this tech continues and I get more vivid LD’s

You should be proud. Not many people learn to catch these FAs on the second try. Keep at it and you will be rewarded. I’m very confident about that now. On my personal forum there are a dozen people who already managed to record hundreds of LDs each within just a few months using SSILD.

So will this technique work even if I haven’t had an LD before? Also what is the average amount of time it takes to have success in with this technique?

Yes it will. This technique was created from ground up to be friendly to beginners. As for the average amount of time it takes, everyone is different. Personally I need between 5-10 minutes for it to work. Sometimes it can even take less time depend on the condition.
