Well I tried it and I did notice an improvement in DR. I will admit I didn't quite go through the whole tech such as the humming or taking a glass of water since I was already in bed and didn't want to disturb the wife.

@avalinah: Well, if you've decided it won't work since you've decided MILD won't work then I doubt you'll see much more progress. Autosuggestion based techs rely on intention and belief. If you feel that you won't be able to do it then don't stress too much about it. I'll just say what dB_FTS did and give it some time. While the OP may claim instant and wondrous results, it's obviously going to vary from person to person.

um, i think the creator pointed out that it worked quite fast for him. i recall hearing something like "and i got 2 LDs one night, then 4 the next.."... or am i wrong..?

i can keep trying.. but it is kind of annoying meh plus i don't know if i'm doing it right either. you're supposed to press so you feel pain, is that the key..?

*avalinah doesn't know much about EFT..


No. Not 4 lucid dreams a night. I had 4 lucid dreams the last few days. None last night, unfortunately. The most I had in a single night with this technique so far is 2.

I think your attitude is a lot of what is holding you back. You don't believe it is possible, so that might be impairing your success. Also, I haven't seen your form with this technique. Just like weight lifting, EFT has a certain 'form' and 'pace'. If you do it wrong, it might affect results.

All I know is just because you go two nights with no success with ANYTHING doesn't mean you should quit. The best things in life are worth working for. However, if you decide that this technique is not for you, that is your choice. It absolutely does work, when done correctly though.

If you think that there's no point then it's maybe better not to forced it... LOL I didn't know about EFT nothing, just like you and one of the first questions to myself was the same. But here's the video that will explain you everything. Just focus on how is he tapping the points, the tech is not important here...


Excellent link there, bro. Thanks for sharing. If it's okay with you, I'll put it in the main post for demonstration and give credit to you for finding it.

You still hav nt answered my questions...Ok here posting it again...

1. Whether to keep eyes opened/closed while tapping body parts?
2. While tapping Gamut points, whether to say affirmation?
3. Whether to tap ring finger also? (u didnt mention in ur post)


1. I always keep mine open until I get to the part of the technique where it says to close them for a few seconds. I'd do it exactly as the EFT technique is laid out for best results. I'm not exactly sure why they do that in EFT, but it seems to work for me. haha

2. Nope. You remain silent while tapping the gamut point.

3. You're supposed to skip the ring finger.

Also, if I recall, you were wondering how many times to do it before bed. I always do it only once. However, when I first started I did it as many as three times in one night. I'm not sure if that helped or not, but I seem to do alright with the technique being done just once. It doesn't suck up as much time.

I think a lot of people here might be stressing too much about this and 'trying too hard' with this. The key point of this technique is to relax and not care about the results. That's not to say you should have a half-*** attitude. State your affirmations with strong will and intent, while doing this, however not as hard as MILD. Then when you're finished, take on the attitude of 'well at this point we'll just have to wait and see if it works or not.' Don't try and think about it while you're falling asleep. Think about OTHER things and let yourself get distracted in all sorts of happy thoughts. It's fine if the thought of lucid dreaming comes up on your way to sleep, but don't let that be your main focus.

The key to success with this technique is balancing effort with ease.

Tried again last night, had the weirdest dream where I was just hanging in space, like when you accidentally WILD into a non-REM dream. I was thinking about a paper I have due and other things in my life. I was actually thinking about things going on IRL, so I guess It's a step in right direction for my awareness with this tech.

hrms now that I've had a chance to read about the technique. It sounds interested, and I will give a try, but probably not more than that. Just don't feel it will fall into alignment with my personal style of lucid activation. However, I will be sure to post up anything resulting from the test of the technique.

Also, it is great to hear about the good experiences derived from the technique. I am always a fan of people finding ways that work for them to induce \ achieve lucidness.

Keep at it everyone!

This night was the fourth night where I tried this technique (I adjusted it a bit). I'm using my DR mantra instead of the "I'm dreaming" one because I don't aim for LD's right now. Two nights out of these four I had incredible good DR which means a lot for me at the moment because I'm not keeping up my DJ and doing so usually results in a crappy DR. In one of these dreams, I was also sort of lucid (or maybe a FLD).

EFT seems to do a good job for me when the visualizations are easy to do. I'm sorry if this has been already asked, but do you (or anyone else) have any experience using EFT in combination with WBTB?

Ok I just did all the steps, but I was a little confused about the last step. It said I should hum the first notes of the song, and in the meantime count the speed that I am tapping my hand. (uhm what's the name of that point again? Gamot? Sorry! I forgot sadblauw)

Anyways, how do I do that? I cannot count while focussing on humming the song :O Also should I count in seconds, or did you mean the amount of times I tap my hand (cause that is what I did).

Also, how fast should I tap each point? I did like 4 in a second, or is that way too much?

(I am not native English so it's hard to translate certain things, like the mantra as well, but I think I've translated it so that my mind understands it completely. I'm dutch by the way:) ) It looks like a nice and effective method though! Thanks for posting it ^^

Humming and counting are separate steps. First you hum then you count like first tap 1, second tap 2... How much taps peer point is not really important... Watch the video in main post, it will explain some things... Good luck!

I had improvement in DR too, even though I didn't aim on DR. I've never tried it with WBTB but I think that it won't do any damage, I mean you can repeat tech as many times you like so repeat it again while WBTB is actually a good thing...
