Yes that's possible :) But often it is more effective if you do it in the middle of the night, but it can give a good result when you try it at regular bedtime too. ^^

ld411, yes, I suppose you could.
Just picture yourself getting lucid in a dream you had the night before. (having good dream recall works great if your doing this type of mild)

I'm kinda confused about MILD. I tried doing it once, but all it led to was a very long, very weird, very vivid ND. I'm not sure how to do it. I did the three steps (remember, set your intent, visualize), but I had trouble staying focused. I found my thoughts straying and I found it difficult to visualize being lucid. I also wasn't sure which I should do more: repeating "I will realize I'm dreaming" over and over again in my head, or visualizing. Can someone explain what I did wrong?

Just give it some time. Stressing over it will only lessen your chances of obtaining lucidity. You may also want to try considering moving on to other techniques if after a while you're still lucidless. You could MILD while trying to visualize something (essentially a VILD). An example:

Go to sleep and repeat "The next time I dream, I will realize I'm dreaming". After repeating it about 5 times, start to picture yourself flying a mile high in the sky with the earth and clouds zooming by you. Keep repeating while doing this. Try to induce senses, like feeling the wind blowing on you, or smelling fresh air. Keep repeating and visualizing until you drift away, or if you can't sleep while doing those tasks, simply stop doing them after ten minutes or so and go to sleep with a faint intention of becoming lucid.

Try it out smile

Who here has lots of success with MILD?
PostPosted: Tue 14 Aug, 2007  Reply with quote

I have one question for you, when you're repeating your mantra, do you do it when you're in bed and fully awake. Or do you lay there for a while and wait until you're about to lose conciousness/drift off then do it?

I have no success in MILD but I think you would lay there for a while and wait until you're about to lose consciousness/drift off to sleep then do it. Might be more effective.

Just found some good information on Reality Checks. Some I knew, but others I did not so I thought I would post them somewhere on this site.

Breathing Can you breathe through a tightly shut nose?

If you're swimming, can you breathe underwater?

Jumping When you jump, do you float back down?

Reading Do sentences change when you read them?

Read, turn away and repeat it to yourself, and then turn back and read it again. Do this twice.

Vision Do you have perfect vision? This only works for people who have at least slightly blurry vision in the waking world.

Hands Are your hands a strange colour, have too many fingers (sometimes they disappear and reappear when you try to count them!) or have other abnormalities?

Can you push your finger through your other hand?

Time Does your watch or clock tell a reasonable time? Are you even able to read the time off it? Sometimes clocks have the wrong number of hands or have strange symbols. Note: Digital clocks often work better for this reality check.

Powers Are you able to fly (just visualise it), unlock doors, or use other magical powers? Try to change the shape of your body, or walk through a wall, window, or mirror.

Light switches Does a light switch work?

Mirrors Do you look normal in a mirror?

Nose Can you see your nose with one eye closed?

Memory Are you able to remember how you got here, why you are here and what happened an hour ago? This is not always a reliable reality check!

Finger Stretching Are you able to elongate your finger by pulling on it? Body-image is malleable in the dream state, so this is quite reliable if you believe it will work. In the waking world you can pass it off as cracking a knuckle.

The best RC is holding your nose and trying to breath through it grin grin
