Thx for tips everyone, I had a bit of success last night.

I found that if I set my WBTB 5 hrs after sleeping as opposed to 4 I get a very vivid dream and awsome dream recall of the previous dream. Previously, when I woke up after 4 hrs, I had no dream recall and couldn't really do MILD because I didnt have a fresh dream in my head. This allows me to visualize really well because I just go back to sleep with the dream fresh in my head.

It's more like cheating when you constantly remind yourself of the targets I think because you don't have that kind of continuity of awareness from sleep onset to dream and dream to dream. So if you 'forget' about the target and something else reminds you of it, it seems ok to me.

I've been thinking about this one too. It is kind of cheating when you constantly remind yourself like you say, so you just have to let it go smile
And recently I've found myself almost "searching" for these dreamsigns so I can perform the RC, and that's probably not how it was meant
I mean you should just do what you usually do and when the event happens it will trigger your memory and you will do the RC.. but it's hard neutral

I had my first LD and it was exactly how you described it. My dream began lucid and I was amazed. I also did some RCs later. I'm not sure what induced it. I told myself that I would have a lucid dream that night, and I prayed for one, but I did not spend time focusing or trying to induce it, I just went straight to bed. I believe mine was instinct.

Note: This was not my first dream of the night. It was the second or third.

MILD question
PostPosted: Wed 06 Sep, 2006  Reply with quote

<mod>Question merged into the BIG MILD topic</mod>

During the part where you visualize becoming lucid, should you imagine becoming lucid from a DS or just out of the blue? Should you do a RC or does it matter?

Chesire Cat, I prefer to visualize myself becoming lucid in a dream scene, that is I try to incubate the dream where I saw myself becoming lucid and that combined with my intent produces lucid dreams.

The Science of Lucidity, it is possible to have lucid dreams at will with MILD, as it is with WILD, personally I find it easiest to start the night with MILD and then when I awake from a first lucid dream I use WILD if I want to have more.

I have a problem.
I can't get any more LD's, and i do the same thing i did before.
I just gain some enthusiasm before going to sleep, and it worked.
Now i tried it many times. cry
It seems that after a short break without LD's (few weeks), i cant get them again...

It seems to me that a good MILD'er said he had to change sometimes his induction sentence.

I don't know, I haven't had to change mine although I typically just have to form the intent to have a lucid dream to have one. I don't really have any particular mantra per se.

No, I don't believe there is anything you're doing wrong. I do believe, however, that you'll have to give it much more time than a single night. Any technique will take a while to allow you to get a LD...

Really focus on your intent. Don't just minlessly say the phrase, and try changing it up some.

To add on to this...

Whenever I really focus on my intent, I end up lying there for and hour or so, never able to fall asleep, that is until I give up and just fall asleep as I normally would with normal results to match...

I would say really focus on what you are thinking for about 15-30 min. and then relax and lightly consider your objective and allow yourself to sleep.
