If you want to learn how to have a WILD lucid dream (aka a 'Wake Induced Lucid Dream') then this video is for you.
I'm going to show you my simple but effective method for having awesome WILD lucid dreams.
The method basically goes like this:
#1 - Sleep. So just go to sleep for a few hours (around 3 or 4). Just make sure that you set an alarm so that you don't sleep for TOO long.
#2 - Relax. At this point you should just lie down and relax and try to empty your mind. If a thought does enter your mind just acknowledge it and let it pass through but do not interact with it.
#3 - The Hypnagogic State. Soon you should enter what is called the hypnagogic state which is a similar to when you wake up half way through the night and are already drifting back to sleep. You may start to see fractals and shapes.
#4 - Sleep Paralysis. Eventually you should enter sleep paralysis. In this stage you may start to see things, hear things or to feel things. Just continue to remain calm and relaxed.
#5 - Enter Your Dream. Soon you should find yourself beginning to enter your dream. For me it feels like I am being pulled by an invisible force of some kind. Soon everything will evolve into a full blown dream scene and now you are lucid dreaming!
But remember that wake induced lucid dreaming is not really a beginner friendly method and it can take quite a bit of practice.
However if you are totally new to lucid dreaming then never fear because you can get my super simple (and free!) 3 step guide to having awesome and vivid lucid dreams below:

I have created a guided, full body relaxation video, made with the intention of inducing WILD. I would be honored if you would check it out and give any feedback. Thank you!
One time I was sleeping then I entered sleep paralysis, and I tried to wake up, but only my mind woke up, and I saw nothing. I realized I was in sleep paralysis when I tried to move, but I couldn't move, then I closed my eyes, and really woke up.
This already happens to me naturally, try falling asleep and I feel myself falling or some shit then my eyes open, I go into sleep paralysis and it scares me, I wake myself up tho by moving my toes and fingers
i was in the hypnagogic state and i was trying wild but my alarm was still going of so the person where i sleep with said my alarm was going and i just said im trying something without even thinking about to talk it went automaticly
Ok so I recently started "experimenting" on WILD. I started meditating at around 0:00 and then managed to get into a stage where I felt like I was flying and stuff like that. I could also see some particles and had a strange feeling. What stage of WILD is that and what comes after?
Hah I tried this last night, and I woke up, and my gaming chair started talking to me and we had a completely normal conversation, and then everything in my room turned red, and the jacket on my wall was casting a shadow that started turning demon-like, so then I just closed my eyes, and used all my strength to move.
Literally just rolled off of my bed and woke up.
That is sleep paralysis
You need to realise nothing is real
Its NOT demonic
Its NOT HARMFUL
Its just THE BRAIN

My first lucid dream was VERY weird...
For some reason I was in a classroom the size of a stadium and the teacher was in the very middle. He was talking about something boring so I turned to the person next to me (an old classmate from middle school) and said, “Wow, this is boring.” She didn’t say anything so shortly after, out of NOWHERE, I said, “By the way, this is a dream.” Immediately, I realized what i had just done and I gasped in excitement in my dream. Unfortunately that woke me up and it only lasted 2 seconds, but I felt accomplished.
For all the guys asking about waking up from excitement from lucid dreaming, dont get too excited. Just take a deep breath (in ur dream) and do whatever u want without getting too excited about lucid dreaming.
Okay before trying this, I gotta know: During sleep paralysis, if you keep your eyes closed, can you still see scary shit? I've never had sleep paralysis before and I'm a little bitch so I know for sure that my mind will be playing tricks on me. Very nervous about hearing things or getting touched by anything but I know for sure that that's inevitable for me since my mind loves scaring me but I'd like to think that I can keep calm as long as I don't try to move so that I can pretend that I'm not paralyzed and as long as I don't see whatever waiting for me.
when i enter sleep paralysis, eventually my body becomes numb feeling and my eyelids are glued closed so that it feels like i am looking through my eyelids, but i don''t see many colors or lights or shapes, just black and the occasional type of light that phases past my eyes like if you looked at the sun with your eyes closed in real life
however, i am easily able to shock myself back to reality by force and nothing happens when im trying to visualize my dreams, sometimes ill start to see lights that are shaped like things in my room which i perceive to be the beginning of my visualization, but last night i was in this state for a long time compared to the time it took to enter sleep paralysis.
my question is, how long does it usually take u guys to fully enter the dream? many minutes, hours? which stage of the process is the longest or shortest?
You gotta be very sleepy, hence he says in the video "Step 1, go to sleep". For me it takes about 10-20 minutes to get to sleep paralysis. You'll know when it comes. Your body gets heavy and numb and you feel a little light headed.
Ok I’m done the last two nights I have been scared to lucid dream because of sleep paralysis but tonight I don’t even care I’m gonna man up and go through sleep paralysis and think to myself they can’t hurt me I’ll thing positive I’ll keep you updated to tell you i I had a lucid dream
HELP: Everyday everynight i can't fall asleep quick usually takes an hour and a half i think and when i wake up in 6 hours i cant freaken fall back asleep i dont see anything and i dont lucid dream ever
try reverse blinking, it worked for me many times, basically you close your eyes and every 5 seconds or so, open and close them quickly and eventually you will get into the theta state and will begin to fall asleep
I have had a lucid dream once though I wasn't very lucid, I was going to sleep one night and wanted to have a lucid dream, I also had school the next day so I set to wake up at like 2 am. So I went to sleep then I'm suddenly in the dream in my driveway at my dads house, also at the time i was at my moms. So I look around and then i say "hey im dreaming" then i stick my finger through my hand, also the dream was blurry. So after I stuck my finger through my had I said I want to go to the beach, then I closed my eyes and saw a little glimps of the beach then my alarm woke me up.
I have a question, whenever i try wild and notice that i am asleep and
still laying down on my back in bed i try moving but i cant (not sleep
paralysis) i try to like move my arms but when i try to move it goes
back to where it lays if it makes any sense lol. and than when i try
harder i just get up and realise that i just woke myself up and if i
dont do anything in that state i also just wake up whutdoidowrong?
People say WILD is really difficult, but I feel like it's the easiest way I've found to Lucid Dream. Every other technique I tried failed, but the very first time I tried WILD, I got 3/4 the way through the tecnique, and even started half wake/dreaming, then woke myself up by accident, but it's still the closest I've gotten.
Worked for me and lasted a long time if you remained calm. The sleep paralysis park felt unreal it was crazy, I almost woke up but I stayed with and got put into a dream instantly lucid. Then I started flying around outside and running on walls testing more of my capabilities. I've lucid dreamed with many other techniques or just on my own before but this one is a fun one.. definitely try it out. It lasts a long time if you know the techniques to stay and was awesome to actually experience your body and brain jump into a dream consciously.
Also for the beginners out there, I wouldn't recommend trying to do this method straight away. Try more beginner methods to start and learn how to stay in your dream and experiment what you like to do in your dream, it's great
Just had a crazy dream. I some how ended laying on my stomach. I felt body pressure but stronger pressure on my ears. Like someone had put there fingers on my ear channels. It felt massage like and felt a state of helpless/relaxation but I could move if i wanted too but didn't, I could even open my eyes. The more i would fight it, the stronger the ear pressure became. I felt a woman with brown long hair keeping me down. I felt slight pressure in my ankles and wrists with soft pressures on my body. I would move my hand, trying to signal her to stop but the more i would try the stronger the ear pressure became. Prompting me to relax would lessen the ear pressure. I slowly transitioned from the dream state totally relax in the same position i had my dream. My ear pressure slowly subsided and me think WTF just happen...
Notes. I was really sleepy that night and woke up to change position. In my dream i was still sleepy. 3 people where there, one i recognize and the 2 others i didn't know. I remember the house 2 blocks away, soo real i go there in real life. When i was receiving my lucid massage my mind was racing, thinking i could get killed, I don't like feeling vulnerable but gave in to relaxation and trust. Weird shit and at some point felt embarrassed because my junk was aroused and I didn't want her to know.
okay someone here help me.
i have been trying to induce WILD lucid dreaming after 5-6 hours of sleep and stay awake for 15-20 minutes and get back to bed laying down on my back face towards ceiling. I relax take deep breaths and do mindfulness meditation and within 15-20 minutes my body becomes numb as i enter the hypnagogic state however before entering this stage sometimes i get the dizzy sensation on head like everything is spinning (usually doesn't last longer than 5-10 seconds) and then it stabilizes again
once stabilized few minutes later i usually start hearing echoes of tv outside (mums usually watching tv around 5.30am since she wakes up early) the sound of the tv goes from normal sound of talking people to echoing this also happens with birds chirping outside early morning it starts echoing, my chest feels heavier and a rush of sensation and heart starts beating faster and by this stage i feel scared all of a sudden as i dont know what to expect and end up waking up.
can someone tell me if im actually close? if these are the right symptoms to get to lucid dreaming? what should i expect from that stage should i choose to not wake up?
Dude can i ask you something i had 3 lucid dreams this week(which is amazing since i am 13 and first times i lucid dream) but when i get to sleep paralysis i have to wait like 10 minutes(also to not get scared i put funny stuff on my wall or cover my eyes with something to make me thing i cant see)and then i enter the lucid dream. Is there any way to do this faster. I dont really like a bear singing in front of me GAME OVER YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and feeling my chest beeing utterly clusterfucked
Hi, i yesterday tried it and almost got in to sleep paralizis stage, but got scared and didn't sleep for an hour, because i was scared of experiencing sleep paralizis.
any tips how to defeat that fear?
