Several days ago I ran into a webpage describing a technique for lucid dreaming, in which your body would enter sleep paralysis while you are fully
conscious (if done correctly) After the paralysis, your body falls asleep, but you remain conscious... This allows you to become fully aware of your
dreams and even interact with them. The dreams are more vivid and with practice you are even able to control what you dream about and what happens in
A lucid dream can begin in one of two ways. A dream-initiated lucid dream (DILD) starts as a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes it
is a dream, while a wake-initiated lucid dream (WILD) occurs when the dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no
apparent lapse in consciousness.
The WILD technique caught my eye especially, because one of the steps included you visualizing yourself walking into the dream which you are about to
I attempted this technique a few nights ago, as the instructions recommended, I played binaural beats onto my headphones, I remained as still as
possible and eventually entered into what i believe was sleep paralysis. At this point i was a bit nervous (as it was a new experience to me) However,
it was the transition between sleep to dream state that shocked me.
The transition was a black tunnel with rings of light, the feeling of entering it was of complete shock, and my body (or at least i think it was my
body) was suddenly vibrating and having that feeling of falling at the same time. It was at this point that I lost control and woke up. I really need
help finding out how to get past this part, as it honestly scared me very much, and I've never had such a vivid or intense dreaming experience. The
directions themselves made it clear that the transition was difficult, so I'm not surprised at my failure really.
Does anyone know how to go about doing this? I'm willing to try again but I'm kind of frightened. Also, please don't bring spirituality into this,
I am looking for a logical process like the one described in the web page.
btw mods, i couldnt find a place to post about dreams, so i posted here, sorry if its in the wrong area.
