coming off WBTB?
PostPosted: Mon 16 Dec, 2013  Reply with quote

so last night is when i actually really did WBTB properly--i wasn't too awake or too sleepy for it and i had my first controlled LD (finally flying. ooooh yeah woo ). anyway i'm thinking: if i continue WBTB until i master it, and keep doing reality checks would i eventually be able to come off WBTB and just be able to LD in regular dreams without techniques (they don't always work for me--FILD and stuff, but when they do work, i hardly have time during sleep to wake up during my REM cycle and whatnot)? supposing that my awareness during the day isn't as strong as it used to be

while I don't have an answer for you, I want to chime in that I can only become lucid through WBTB. I think the only times I didn't, the dreams still took place early in the morning like 4 or 5.

Theoretically, yes. However, I have found that my best chances for an LD are still after I wake up. Mind you, I don't wake up for long. Usually just 3-5 minutes does the trick for me. It gives you a chance to go back to sleep very quickly with an intention in mind.

Also, congrats on the awesome LD ^^
