WILD: sound technique - has anyone successfully used this?
PostPosted: Wed 07 Mar, 2007  Reply with quote

I read about this WILD sound technique on the Lucid Dreaming wikibook, where you listen hard for the tinnitus in your ear. This would be an awesome technique for me because for some reason I suffer from the condition tinnitus, for as long as I can remember (last week. haha, no, only joking, I can remember longer than that). Has anyone heard of this, or used it, or even better - successfully used this technique?

Join me in the plight for listening-induced LDs. I'm using it with WBTB, by the way.

I personally always use it. It's the only way I successfully WILD.

chip9munk - Tinnitus is that ringing noise in your ear. If you don't hear it, then your ears must be healthy or something. Tinnitus seems stronger if you listen to really loud things, but I don't recommend it...

yeah, tinnitus can be really annoying. It's ALWAYS there, even if you don't realise.

Anyway I tried to wake up with autosuggestion, succeeded, but didn't do anything because my hand was numb and floppy. After fixing it I went back to sleep without getting to try WILD. I know why I forgot - I was too preoccupied with my mangled-dodgy hand to look at my clock, which is the trigger for me to remember to do a WILD. DAMN!

I never had a wild so i can't say it's been successful.
However i've gotten to the vibrations using this tech.
I picked it up from an OBE guide long ago.
The key was to listen while keeping the mind "blank".
Kinda like listening for the thunder after you've seen a lightningbolt.
Listening on the ringing in your ears should work fine too i guess.
It's basicly trying to maintain singleminded focus.

On my ever first WBTB+WILD attempt, I used that tinnitus technique. It got louder and really louder, then I heard repeated buzzing sounds, then it stopped, then it re-started. After that I was in a dream. Not a really vivid dream, but at least I was 100% lucid. Lasted 10 seconds. I guess it was excitement.

But that sound technique attempt has been my only successful WILD, ever. I've been trying to reproduce it since then. Always failed.

This is great technique, if you know - hear the ringing always when you concentrate.

Stupid topic...I wasn't conscious of the annoying ringing sound in my ears till I read this topic. It's like being told that the next time you swallow you'll hear a popping sound. overspannen

BTW, I didn't even know what tinnitus was nor did I know that not everyone else hears this sound in their ears. One moment you're healthy, the next moment you suddenly have a 'condition', arghhh.

I dont think it's disease. I have it since birth and its natural for me, i hear it only when i focus on it (in silence rather). Its like breathing - its there only if you remember.
