I'm going to try this tonight with a twist. I think maybe making it harder count downwards would require more concentration, thus it will probably carry over into a dream. I'm going to count down in Japanese, tomorrow night I'm going to skip every other number. I'll post if this works or if I think of any more ways.

There is one dreamer who used to keep aware of "gravity", as he described it, or rather, how his body felt, for all day long, and would become lucid in every dream as a result, because if you pay attention to it, dreams "feel" very different from reality. It's just a matter of keeping your awareness wink
That's so funny I, out of the blue, started doing the same thing, I was reliving my lucid dreams in my head figuring out how my body felt. The only thing different is indeed a lighter feeling, no gravity. So I have been trying to be aware of gravity and the heaviness of my body in WL, I had not anticipated that this is actually causing me to get quite exhausted! LOL shy2
Hopefully I can keep this up so one of these days it will dawn on me in a dream that I feel awfully light and become lucid.

It becomes easier after the first times, as it becomes less of an active chore, and more of a state of being. Good luck to you ^^

This seems really interesting! I want to try it smile But for some reason I'm scared of sleeep paralysis. It's all in a state of mind but it still scares me ;__;

I haven't had any LD for a month already (normal for me in present time). Last night i read about this technique here. I didn't plan to try it out.

What happened is this. Today early morning i had disturbed sleep because it was my turn to be with our 1y4m old son, and his sleep was disturbed. In one moment when i was awake, i remembered this technique, but i wanted to use counting just to get back to sleep. I was counting to 20 when i felt that i'm about to fall asleep. As my mind was awake i thought why not to fell asleep conciously (WILD), and i tried to keep my brain wake. When i arrived to 25 with my count i felt how SP kicked in. So it was the right time to "move" my dream body and get out from bed to start my LD wink

So thanks for this topic. It helped me to get lucid again smile

Wow, amazing! I'm glad for you. I didn't realize however that you're supposed to move your dream body the second sleep paralysis sets in. I've always just kept still waiting for images or scenes etc. But then again, I haven't really determined yet as to whether or not that what I sense is my dream body. What I sense is very barely there.

Well, i was pretty tired and afraid that if i wait few more seconds i just fall asleep unconciously. Usually when i'm not that tired and i feel SP, i don't hurry to move "dream body out". But now, as it felt the same sensation as during usual SP, i did not see any reason to wait any more smile

Last night I was just relaxing before going to sleep and listening to some binaural sounds that were accompanied by the soothing sounds of littles water waves hitting the shore. I just relaxed and focused on the sounds when all of a sudden I saw a pair of intense eyes looking at me, totally caught me by surprise seeing as I was not even attempting to notice HI. I remembered someone saying something about old hag symptoms, but her eyes (definitely feminine) were not old, only very intense. Kinda cool.

I doubt that! I think you would have been exited, as was I, this was actually the most vivid, and very present, HI so far.

I haven't had LDs for about a year (been too busy with school, I guess), but yesterday I decided to make a comeback. And this technique almost gave me results right away. I woke up (which I told myself to do before I fell asleep) and immediately thought about counting and then doing a RC. At times I struggled with keeping my mind focused on the numbers, but I grew more and more determined and almost shouted out the numbers in my head. Suddenly (by the number of 70, I think), I felt an extraordinary feeling all over my body - almost as if I was "dragged" into my dream, but I got too excited and woke up.

I'll definitely try this again tonight smile
