OMG!! I just had an LD! It wasn’t entirely with the VILD technique, but it did help keep my mind occupied with LDing and RC techniques.
So, in short… the VILD didn’t exactly work as planned, but a lot of the elements of the VILD I had planned did occur in the dream. It also helped me to remember to do RC’s.
I think it’s also because of the nap. It’s wellknown that napping increases chances of having an LD, probably because your mind is more alert, or because time between being awake and REM is shorter.
But anyway… woohoo! Thanks again Pedro Now I KNOW this is good stuff Must practice more!
