its only HI if you are falling asleep and in the hypnagogic state, otherwise its just -I

imagery.

colours and abstract images that are fluid and ever changing could be said to be the energy, geometry, or framework OF dreams, however unless one sees vivid realities they are not useful for entering what we think of as a conventional dream

though the entire screen of images upon the eyelids can become 3 dimensional for us to "step out" and into this sea of flickering objects and colours... this is more like astral projection, and focus here upon specific areas of the body such as the brow point, crown point, throat or heart center will be more useful

whereas if you were to doze off and see a building appear, this is just a normal average dream you can be lucid in, colors are quite a bit different.

hmmm I keep falling asleep! Can't seem to keep my mind awake by just counting. I'll try again tomorrow morning...

Anyway it's a fun tech to try, and at least you feel like you're doing something!

If you aren't already you can try WILD in conjunction with WBTB it will help decrease the time it takes you to enter the dream and seems to make it easier for most people to WILD. It seems to improve your chances when it's combined with any technique.

The basic idea of WILD is to transition from waking to sleeping without losing awareness. You don't have to use counting, it is only one technique to keep you aware. You could also try visualisation, or FILD to name just two alternatives. smile

Try it in the morning. And if you still find it hard to go back to sleep, wake up earlier next time.

Im having a problem falling asleep while doing the wild method.
I have tried it in the morning also and still no results.
[/spoiler]While triyng to wild I would relax and then i would feel vibrations and it would feel like i am sinking in my bed or swirling. I start to see somewhat bright abstract images and every once in a while a bright white circle.
But thats as far as i get. Im usually in bed for about 30 minutes.

i have a question.
PostPosted: Tue 03 Jun, 2008  Reply with quote

is there a way to lay that's better than another? (ex: stomach, back, etc.) because i lay on my side with one arm under my head. i tried WILD and i thought that SP was kicking in because my arm was very tingly, heavy, and i couldn't move it. but after a copule minutes with nothing happening i realized that my arm felt that way because i was laying on it, and it was falling asleep! so... is there a specific position that generally works using WILD?

The site says that, like ven0m said, lying on your back is best, but I have found that it really doesn't matter. If it is comfortable, then it should work.
I have a question as well. I realized that I am getting to the fully formed images stage when I let my mind wander a bit, but when I do realize that, I snap out of the random train of thought and the pictures go away. Any way to prevent this from happening? I'm pretty sure I'm getting somewhere, because I can do this pretty quickly by now.

There us a WILD Q&A topic i think ...
anyways , firast you have to realx yourself , start thinking about the place or scene you want to find yourself in , let it become clear before your minds eye.
When you are near enought to being asleep , you can "step into" the scene (that how i do it ... hope that makes sense for you too )
