Mic882: I’m not a WILD expert, but some people said it was easier to enter a LD when you imagine movement. The only time I succeeded, I imagined jumping into a chimney (this chimney was an HI and it appeared in front of my eyes).
Defiance: don’t you ever had a LD? In a DILD, it’s a dream and you are conscious. It’s the same with WILD. I understand that it could look like a paradox: some scientists (Havelock Ellis) asserted in the 30’s a lucid dream was impossible, because if you’re conscious, you’re not asleep. That’s why Laberge set up his experimentations, in order to prove that you could be conscious during REM sleep.
Indeed, Ellis was wrong (curious, he was not such stupid though), cause it’s obvious you have a very little bit of consciousness during normal dreams (or else you wouldn’t be able to remember them). During WILD, you use this awareness to observe the falling asleep process.
