Winter-depths;
It sounds like an OBE to me.. lachgroen
Or maybe AP? Cause people who have them tend to say they see lights of different colours..
As for the RC.. idk. Maybe cause it was your OBE body..meh.
Hope this helps.. maybe you could look up OBE's and see if what you experienced matched with anything to do with OBEs siiw

Im pretty sure this question comes up quite often but what the heck can I do to prevent/ stop my heart from racing while trying WBTB?


I get that, everyone does. What i do to stop getting all panicked about it is say to myself, WOW.. one more step im going to WILD! For me its like the sign that in about 10 odd seconds, you'll be full on WILDing, so its a good thing for me. Though i know it may be hard..sometimes i get really tense when it happens, but now i see it as a good sign. Maybe you should repeat the mantra in your head 'once my heart starts beating fast... im almost there!!' & try and enjoy the experience, adrenaline junkies do millions of things to get that buzz ... so enjoy! ^^

Is it dangerous to WILD? I mean can it have an effect on your health if you WILD when you go to sleep every night?


No, it can't really unless you just spend too much time WILDing and not enough time sleeping. I have been WILDing on a regular basis now for at least 3 or 4 years and I have noticed zero changes in health. See, the thing about WILD is that it doesn't cause you to enter REM sleep directly in and of itself. There is a reason why WILD isn't done and works poorly at the beginning of the night, which is that the body goes into deep sleep first and it is near impossible to stay awake in deep sleep. When one WILD's + WBTB or with a nap it's a different story. Later in the night and during naps people tend to fall almost straight into REM, so WILD is merely going along with the natural sleep process.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to try and combine the WBTB technique and WILD tomorrow morning. ^^

Lucidity_Master, thanks for explaining!
I always wake up during the night naturally, often more than once, so I'll try to go WILD tonight! smile

Hello there. I've been practising WILD for some time, but I've got some problems. I tried it at night to see what kind of sensations I would get. I got HI, HH, sounds, etc. But when I try to do WILD at the morning, I have a hard time. If I wake normally (i.e. without an alarm clock) WILD takes a very long time and I can't relax completely because of noises, etc. When I try WILD after sleeping for ~6 hours, I can't keep my mind awake, and finally, I fall asleep fast.
My question is, is it really important to remain awake some time before going back to the bed for WILDing?
Thanks smile

No, the reason this is recommended is that for many people if they don't wake up enough they fall back asleep to easily instead if WILDing. If less time awake is making it easier for you to get dream of hypangogic imagery, then by all means go with that variation.
