You must be in complete silence. Then just listen, do you hear absolute silence, or is there "something"? Do not try to create some sound, just listen. Maybe it will take a while.
And remember the sound is not external. Good luck ^^

That "something" is probably the best description of it. I wouldn't say it's a clear sound at all, but maybe a fuzziness at most.

I tried but I am not sure if this is it. Is it something like a frequency sound? Like the white noise in the TV? Or maybe not, I can't seem to explain it. Maybe a humming type sound. For some reason it just seems like something to do with hertz or frequency. If it is then I guess I can hear it and I've probably heard it before but thought it was normal, otherwise I can't hear it.

One time I tried WILD I accidentaly started to listen to my tinnitus and concentrated on it - shortly after it got so loud it felt like an engine or a bomb blew up right next to my ears and this white light "burned" up the darkness in front of my eyes. I got terrified and woke up quickly. I didn't realise that focusing on the sound could be a great way until I came here, I thought I did something else..., thanks for this, I'll try it the next time I'm going to LD!

On the subject of tinnitus, many years ago when I was a kid I did something that made my sister slap me, but she hit my ear and this insane ringing sound went through my head and it wouldn't go away. We went to the doctor later that week, but they couldn't find anything wrong and declared I had tinnitus. I spent years to accept this sound and that it might never go away. Now I don't really care about it anymore, because my hearing is still very good, I just hear a ringing sound 24/7. I only really hear it clearly when I think about it. Like you, it's just like breathing to me as well. ^^ A saying I made, "If you cannot get rid of it, why not turn it into something good?" grin1

I have been trying to achieve a WILD coupled with WBTB for almost two weeks, with no considerable progress.

I usually don't sleep on my back, so it's quite uncomfortable for me. However this does start SP very quickly for me, but I can't go no deeper, while on my back. Tonight i tried "cheating", rolling over and pretending to give up, while at the same time I kept counting, focusing on my third eye and on the tinnitus. And it worked! Almost instantly my SP got very intense. At the same time, the tinitus got much louder and acquired a pulsating quality to it (kind of like those binaural beats). My arms felt as if I grabbed a high voltage wire (minus the pain) kinda cool. That's when started thinking, "Oh yeah! LD, Here I cooooooome!".....
and nothing....Everything stopped, my eyes went dark, and my SP went away. eh

I got up out of my bed very dissapointed, I was so close. Then as I go to go out of my room, I saw that my door is totally missing. That's when it hit me like a brick wall, a FA! woo woo

Thanks for the technique (and my first LD by extension), if anything you can add my success to your tally.

Well for starters, the finger counting and the finger through the palm RC's failed. I ended up trying to pull my finger off and that brought some sensation into my dream body.
I also tried the "ultimate test" jumping through a brick wall. However, the moment before impact a doubt crossed my mind, "What if..." and boinc, I bounced of the wall like a rubber ball and crashed on the floor. :D
The first half of the dream was actually quite boring, because I was lost in a seemingly endless maze of brick-walled hallways.
The second half was the exciting part! I came out into what looked like a huge trainstation or an airport. White marble floors, glass ceiling and walls, bright light, blue sky, and a whole bunch of people hurrying about on their own bussiness.
Funnily, I forgot about my "Lucid To do" list, and did the first thing that came into mind: Slow time. Quite easy actually, imagine it and bang everyone's crawling at the speed of the snail, but not for longer than a couple of seconds.
The dream lasted for what felt like 1 or 2 minutes (Which is incredibly long for me). And I began loosing lucidity towards the end and woke up shortly. Needless to say I couldn't go back to sleep after that.
I want back!!!!

I've almost gotten this to work several times on accident.

My tinnitus just gets really loud all of a sudden, startling me. Then I get knocked out of it.

Once, it started "pulsating" back and forth between my ears while I had HI of a ball bouncing back and forth between trampolines on a wall. neutral

You must concentrate intentionally. From begining. Try it. wink
If you find "it" i promise your signature will magically change. wizard

I tried it last night, but I fell asleep.

I had a nice vivid normal dream though. grin

You must stay awake in mind...perhaps lay on back. You must clear your mind completely, dont think on anything else otherwise your mind will wander and you will fall asleep. Put your WHOLE concentration on it. Thats all. ^^
