[WILD] Stepping into a dream?

I recently got back into LDing, and have been trying to WILD. However, sometimes I lose focus and start dreaming. I would suddenly realize I am dreaming, and snap back to being awake. The only way I can fall asleep is if I purposely lose focus. What do you suggest I do if this sort of thing happens again?

Just go with the flow when the dream comes. That way, you don’t suddenly snap out of it. You can start using some control slowly later in the dream.

Whenever I have trouble getting to sleep, for whatever reason, there seem to be two causes.

  1. I am not emotionally ready for sleep i.e. too exicted, upset etc.
  2. I am conciously thinking of falling asleep.

If it continues to be a problem it wouldn’t hurt to check those two things.
