Im sorry if this seems to be a dumb question! How does one know when he/she has entered Sleep Paralysis SP during an attempt at a WILD?

well, you supposedly feel your body "vibrating" just before, and a telltale sign that you've entered SP is... that you can't move

SP is NOT a step in WILD! Sleep Paralysis occurs when you enter REM sleep, your body then "locks" itself to prevent you from acting out your dreams.

In SP you are unable to move, no matter how hard you try you can't move, so the numbness you get from doing WILD is not SP.

I am aware of that, but I got the impression from Ky that he believed SP was a step in WILD (Many peple seems to think that wink5) so I simply explained.

Ive found that SP when going into a dream a alot easier to get out of than it is to get out of SP after you wake up from a dream.

so what im getting at it that you will feel very heavy, but if your used to SP after a dream, the feeling will be a little bit different, so dont trick yourself into thinking that you arent experiencing it and screw up your WILD by trying to move, it is alot more sensative in teh beginning

Sometimes your heart races. Also you may feel spinny.

It's already been explained: when you're paralyzed, and unable to move, you're experiencing SP.

You might get some hypnagogic/pompic hallucinations (kinesthetic, auditory, visual etc ...), but the main sign is that you, well, is paralyzed.

so, after you mastered WILD, there comes the sleep paralisis and you cannot NOT notice it, is this right? i fear, that i won't notice my SP

and if you're in SP, you are automatically lucid or is there anything else, you have to do, to take the last step?

If you'd know if your in SP you would be paralyzed as in you won't be able to move your body at all. To get to the next step (I think) you might see a white glow or just a glow itself and you try to imagine an object and then try to reach out to it or step into the white glow. That's how I know to get into the dream state from SP. I have no personal experiences of this, I just got it from other people while ago.

No I've experienced both. The feeling of SP is far more intense buzzing than what you get when you're trying to WILD and your body goes tingling. In SP i feel my body warping and a weird sensation creeps over my like a wave. I can quite easily tell the difference between the two, even if i don't move during the SP.
