this is great i will definitely keep these in mind when i try WILD again. i use DILD mainly, i just do RCs throughout the day and hope i do one in a dream, sometimes i do MILD as well which seems to work very well, i seem to be quite sensitive to it, i just say "i will have a lucid dream" a couple of times and go to sleep, normally i will have one the next morning. still the idea of being able to WILD is fascinating and i want to do it. i wonder if its possible to WILD during the day as well? like in the after noon or something? well i will give these tips a try and keep trying, sooner or later I'll do it smile


Current LD goal(s): fly higher above the clouds.

Hello guys!
That's amazing post!

I'm beginner Lucid Dreamer and wanna ask you a question .
I've collected 4-5 dreams so far, but setting goal, finding dreamsigns etc. look a bit uncomfortable or unreal methods for me. and I can't do that wake back to bed and Mnemonic Induced Lucid Dream techniques because of my school and teachers. My only free day is Sunday and I can only do that techniques on that day.

anddd... the question: what if I try doing WILD already?
What do you think? Is it yet suitable for me? Do I need some experience in setting goals, collecting dreamsigns and so?
Any help will be appreciated !



Current LD goal(s): goal? to reach LD condition

WBTB is needed in order to perform WILD more easily. So I would suggest you just filling your DJ and gathering DS's. Because when you do WILD straight to night's sleep (without WBTB) you will spend at least an hour of lying in bed and not moving. And when you finally are in a dream, it will last only a few seconds or even less, because you will lack of experience what to do when you get lucid. So I think it's just a waste of time, energy and motyvation. Your dream will be extremely unstable and will fade away very quickly. I would suggest you just filling your DJ and that's all.

I've been looking at the articles here and are quite impressed with the quality of them. Obviously some very experienced lucid dreamers here smile
This one on WILD is the first Ive disagreed with based on my own self taught WILDs (I dont disagree with it all), so thought I'd share how it is for me.

DaConceit wrote:
Though WILD yet never worked for me (but was close, I think), I'd guess WBTB would help if the timing is good.

In my opinion, doing WILD when going to bed (at usual time) is a bad idea for two reasons:

1. You need a REM phase to dream. You dont get a REM phase naturally if you begin to sleep at usual times. But after some hours of sleep the chance for getting quickly to REM is pretty high.

2. Even if you'd be able to enforce REM-Sleep by some technique, I'd doubt it was healthy doing this frequently, as "correct" sleep strongly correlates to general health.

Doing WILD when going to bed sounds to me like trying to jump into a train when there aren't even rails. The basics about sleep cycle can be found on wikipedia.


For myself I used to do WILD at any time at all, mostly during the day as long as I can fall asleep I had a good chance of doing a WILD (my favourite time was having an 15-20 min afternoon nap and doing this then). The faster I fell asleep, the faster I'd have the WILD which would happen instantly on falling asleep.

I used to have about 50-60% success with it when I tried. Its my favourite techinque as it can be done at any time at all. I dont like to wake myself up during the night so dont like WBTB.

I love how I can just do so many different things in a lead up to a WILD. I just do whatever I feel like doing at the time, to keep my mind active a bit while I fall asleep. I love the freedom of this technique.

Im fairly sure with WILD that a person could end up being successful 100% of the time with it with practice and experience, teaching the mind to go into this state instead of the sleep state. I do think I would of ended up like that had I keep up doing LD, the more I was doing it, the more I was mastering WILD.

The only negative thing I found about doing WILD in the middle of the day is that they for me were shorter and far more prone to drop outs then if I had a LD during the middle of the night using other techniques.

With doing a WILD at any time, I would have to work a lot harder to keep myself in the dream.

That being said, I still had often decent LDs with daytime WILDs eg enough to try one of my dream challenges and the fade outs are good practice for dream stabilization mastery and also of pulling oneself back into a dream.

I think this is a valid technique even for some beginners.. only last week I was talking to beginner who has just mastered daytime WILDs for his first LDs. Over the years Ive known many beginners who started with WILD (most thou not during the day.. most beginners are better doing WBTB with WILD).

Unfortunately if people think this is going to be hard, it is likely then to be. Never go into trialing any LD technique with that thought in mind as with LD you are working with the subconsciousness. What you think is super important for better success.

No-one can tell anyone what technique they will be better at, its really a case of experimentation thou WILD certainly can be difficult for some but others have found it easier then the other techniques.

There is technique involved in having lots of successful WILDs and a person needs to find what I call their "sweet spot" to get the balance right of when to let go more so to enter the LD. With experience or if a beginner stumbles upon this, WILD can become easy.

I completely agree with what was said by the one who write this article. "Make WILD your own".
Do make every single WILD you have your own... dont be shy to just go with the flow of whatever you feel is the right thing to be doing at the time. You do not need a set way to do your WILDs.

I really like this discussion ^^

I notice that technics are different for people because I think we all agree to tell that something that works for somebody won't work for another.

As far as I'm concerned, I noticed that the Wbtb that worked better were the ones I didn't plan....the day I put my alarm clock and follow all the advices, I didn't even remember my dreams !

But i can tell that goals are effecient for me....I always managed to stay lucid when I had one...and now I gave it up, I saw my last LD melt like snow in summer.

The keys are not the tecnics but the fact to try and find the one that works for you.
