I'm more comfortable sleeping on my side, but I tend to remember my dreams more easily and have lucid dreams more often if I sleep on my back.

But try it for some weeks and not for some days or your experiment is to short on data.

for me

I find that the best way is to change positions whenever one of them becomes too comfortable for me(which is about once every few months),or else I might start having dream droughts.

Either way I almost always wake up on my back or side.

for me it seems that it's when I change position durring the night when I have more chance of LDs and better recall - perhaps it's more about your body being used to the old position and not the new one that keeps your awareness up for a small time longer? who knows wink

Yeah, that might be possible. Just be a bit discomfortable (not that discomfortable that you can't even fall asleep), it might help you to render your consciousness a bit longer.

Position for WILD
PostPosted: Sun 06 Apr, 2003  Reply with quote

Whenever I have attempted WILD, I feel I have got closer when I have been on my side, simply because this feels like my natural sleeping position, so I become more relaxed.

If I try WILD on my back, I become too concious of the fact that I'm not in my normal sleeping position.

So I would say, use whatever position you normally use to sleep in, because you want your body to fall asleep, it's your mind that you want to keep awake.

I've always slept on my back, but last night I tried sleeping on my side with a pillow between my knees for the first time. I went to bed at 10pm and I woke up from a very long and detailed LD at 11:53pm !!! Not even 2 hrs had gone by! I've only had a few LDs and they've never been this real. Needless to say, I will now always sleep on my side to see how that affects me.

I read in a book a while back that the best sleeping position for a male is on his side and facing left (heart is up). For a female, she should be facing right (heart closer to the bed.) Maybe it was placebo from having read that, maybe not, but it's worth a try everyone. smile

Everytime I have a lucid dream I was sleeping on my right side.
yinyang
The dream yoga book I have says that sleeping on that side (left side for women) is good for channeling positive energy through your body as you sleep.sleepy4

We may be talking about the same book, fdroy. What is yours called? I only skimmed through mine at Barnes and Noble but can't seem to find it again.

Tibetan Yogas of Dream And Sleep.
I guess the buddha always slept on his right side... maybe doing that each night will help induce dreams...

I always sleep on my back, that is most comfortable for me. I imagine it all depends on what is most comfortable for you, if you are comfortable you will relax more and sleep better.
