xx521xx, many WILD’ers prefer to lie on the back, but the most important indeed is to find a position in which you can fall asleep easily.
It’s not really a dream. I think it’s closer to HI but it’s a very curious HI. As you experienced it later, when it happens, you can move easily your body and you’re not asleep at all.
These questions have been answered many times on the forum. WILD can be done without WBTB. It seems it’s harder and most often people who do that easily are naturally subject to SOREM sleep indeed. In some cases, like sleep deprivation, every can experience SOREM sleep and have a WILD when going to sleep. Now if WILD makes you lose sleep, it means you focus too much on your practice.
