The tutorial I should have made long ago about the WILD technique.
The WILD technique stands for the Wake induced lucid dream, or the wake initiated lucid dream and it's probably one of the most common techniques for inducing a lucid dream.
If you're a beginner, the WILD technique is GREAT. Watch the whole video or a puppy will cry somewhere.

Lucid dreaming is the ability to control your dreams and become aware of the fact you're dreaming, WHILE you're still asleep. This lets you decide what to dream about, and what to do. It's pretty incredible.
This channel is where you can find tutorials, binaural beats for lucid dreaming, and my personal video responses to peoples questions and problems relating to lucid dreaming and meditation etc. You can leave a comment here and I'll try and make a response, or you can find my social links below:
So in summary: Clear your mind, let things happen, but don't interact or engage. Eventually your dream will start to form. Wait a while for it to solidify, and eventually you'll feel in a full lucid state in which you can then have fun?
I didnt believe step 3 when I first heard and tried WILD until I experienced it, unfortunately I focused too much and lost it, than fell asleep right before sleep paralysis, it was only like my third or so time doing it,I need to start a dream journal because lucid dreaming is pointless if I dont remember doing it (so maybe I was lucid and just forgot)
I tried this method and it nearly worked, i relaxed for like 15 min and then i felt a weird feeling in my whole buddy, i then moved my leg my heart was beating really hard and then it was better. After 10 min I stood up and i felt really weak. I'll tried it again, thanks for the tutorial :)
I started last night and got to a point where I could feel my body going and going but it became so silent, my heartbeat was POUNDING my body was trembling. My mind was calm, and I just waited it out, but I just went back to just laying there. Nothing happened.
I did my first WILD method this morning! (I've had lucid dreams lots of times) and when I did it I was in the lucid dream and I was controlling it but I could still feel a horrible heavy weight on me even tho I was moving around and controlling the dream 😕😕I wanna know how to get rid of the horrible heavy weight feeling?? 😕😕
I tried this and it was really close to working but I kept accidentally twitching because sleep paralysis wasnt fully there. Then it almost worked again but I had to sneeze. It ended up not working that night, but i ended up having a DILD that night anyways. It was awesome! The dream almost dissolved right away, but I stsrted spinning around and fixed it. Then I went about the dream for a little bit and it ended up randomly dissolving anyways. It wasnt even during an exciting part but it was still awesome! Have you ever tried a Wake Induced Lucid Dream and had it not work and then have a DILD?
Should I, when in SP I always see weird geometric shapes and dots in a black background. Should I try to recall a memory. Feel what object felt like etc. and focus on a part of that memory and look in my periferal vision other things. Then keep imaging the scene and will I just enter the lucid dream?
I can do this, but only when the conditions are right. In order for me to perform a WBTB/WILD, some unknown thing has to cause me to wake up not only at just the right time (During a dream, REM sleep), but also it has to wake me up ever so slightly as well. I can't really perform WILD while I am completely awake because I get too excited whenever I see myself getting closer to having a lucid dream, and it only makes me stay awake longer and sets me back from having one. I did get a lucid dream a week ago, and I have a theory that happened because of the sun acting as some soft of "gentle alarm".
I like to think of myself as an active dreamer, I don’t have a dream journal or meditate but I dream a good 40 percent of nights and become somewhat lucid on occasion, but every time I realize I am lucid I get easily distracted and forget. This has happened many times and I was wondering if anyone could give me tips on how to stay focused while lucid dreaming.
I have a really weird question but please take it seriously, So.. the first time that i tried WILD I could feel the weight on my chest after about 10-15minutes of lying down, and the video said that you're supposed to see halogeginc imagery before that? So i just wanna kow whats up with that?
+Drag slayer sleep on your back, and focus on your breathing. Oh and try not to move so much (Don't be afraid when SP happens i've gotten it about 5 times without trying, i can be very scary at first but KEEP YOUR EYES CLOSED)
Oh yeah also, I can't stop swallowing, no matter how hard I try its litterly impossible. And another thing is that no matter how hard I try the wild technique i simply cant see any images or never really get fully paralysed. Also one of the days i was trying wild and I could hear the sound of something scraching against my bedsheet/pillow right next to my right ear and it totally freaked me out
anyone any ideas?
*I always fall asleep before reaching sleep paralysis.*
As I get more and more relaxed and enter a meditative state, *I get quick hypnagogic experiences, but not full scale hypnagogia or sleep paralysis.*
I'll see an image of something in the blackness of my closed eyes, or hear someone say something. These experiences last up to a few seconds.
The problem is, *when they happen, my mind shuts off completely (I lose consciousness) until I snap out of them and return to my conscious meditative state.*
I always just end up falling asleep in the end. It's so frustrating.
My problem is that if i wake up at 4AM i wont go back to sleep so im going to try to do it in my first sleep, and another problem I have is that I get anxious and don’t know how the paralyses feels so i just lay flat until i go to sleep and its a lil wierd
+ChronicAdex I gave up trying to Lucid Dream yesterday :(
It's been almost a month of Dream Journal and Reality Checks every hour and I haven't been able to Lucid Dream :/
If you are trying to do it, good luck. I hope you can do it.
Just relax i never had a lucid dream tbh only a stage 2 dream where i wasnt concesness (aware) just have a good mindset if u have a bad one then u might see stuff that ur mind is afraid of but dont let that ruin wild
Gαtt thanks for the tip. I’m pretty new to the WILD method for lucid dreaming having no success with it so far. That being said I have been able to lucid dream before but they have all been really short because I got too exited and woke up. This is why I have been looking up alternative methods to increase my chances of becoming lucid but this one doesn’t seem to work too well for me 🙁
to be honest, I've never had the lucid dreaming experience before, I started trying 2 days ago by some methods that don't require the sleep paralysis risk. But if I stay still in my bed without moving at all, I can handle my wish to swallow my spit pretty well.
you want a tip? when you are trying to recognize the images with eyes closed after waking up in the middle of the night, try focusing on your breath and on the images/colors. Don't think about swallowing your spit, that must make you lose your concentration and focus very much.
I did it a couple days ago I after watching the new bumblebee movie and when I went into a lucid dream I was in the cybertron war! I killed megatron and won the war if you are wondering (who cares if that isn't the true story of transformers :D)
+GamingDragon sounds amazing but im always so unsure that im dreaming even when im doing a reality check and i realise im dreaming i still dont know because it feels so real, guess i just have to pratice more :)How do you explain this like yesterday i had a vivid dream like it was so vivid that it was scary but i didnt know that i was dreaming but then it became a nightmare and it was so real that when i woke up i was like wtf that shit was real😂 i think i sleept during rem and thats where it happend (where the dream became vivid) thanks for commenting back
ChronicAdex it feels so amazingly real. Never underestimate your brain. Your brain makes the most detailed things ever such as the texture on the walls and floors are so realistic and the hair is so realistic It obeys the laws of physics (unless you control it to do otherwise) and each hair strand is as realistic as any hair in irl and the explosions are amazing. When your aware you have a kinda weird felling (I'm not very good at describing it) and you feell many emotions but be aware DO NOT get to excited or you'll wake up (I got to excited in a dream where I met a friend who's been with me since kindergarten but we were separated not long ago and I was so happy to see them again and I was so excited that everything around me started to disappear and I woke up) and to prevent getting to excited make you spin.
count your breathing like when mediating, or count backwards from 100, or a technique they use for astral projection is to imagine a rope and you're climbing that rope, (astral projection is just lucid dreaming really) but ye it is really hard staying mentally awake, lose focuses for a second and you could be done for the night, are you keeping a dream journal? if not it could just be you arent remembering the lucid dreams
I lost all feeling in my body, except my feet felt super cold (i was under a blanket) and my closed eyes started hardcore twitching and it felt like I was spinning and i could kinda see (eyes still closed) a checker pattern start spinning. I then heard the house settle and woke up :/. Just fell asleep after trying again.
Just tried it then took me literally 7 mins to get to sleep paralysis - my breathing was rapid and it was getting hard to breathe, i noticed my body was twitching and my eye lids were almost transparent although they were shut tight, I didn’t manage to see anything though as my mind was racing and I thought about the sleep paralysis demon and woke myself up... I have only had one lucid dream and it was really unexpected and was brief but I’m excited to get into this stuff...
Guys, if you are experiencing sleep paralysis then if you see any faces or feel any frightening weights pulling you down, just get your inner deeper confidence voice and make the faces feel bad and just be the one on top of everything.
Can lucid dreaming also be when you are able to recognise that you are having a nightmare and you are able to wake yourself up from it at any point? I start to blink rapidly in my dreaming state and that allows me to wake up by blinking. Does anybody relate?
i had a lucid dream last night but it was an out of the blue one, i was just having a dream about school and i was in the outside part between blocks near the carpark where suddenly i just snapped and went "i'm dreaming?" "i'm fucking lucid dreaming?!?!" and started screaming it as no one could have heard me and then started jumping around the car park as it had like moon gravity and all the cars looked like bumper cars at the bottom but i sort of blacked out then awoke 5 seconds into the jumping, definitely gonna start working on these WILD techniques and such though because those 5 seconds were amazing and jeez even 20 seconds lucid dreaming would be amazing but i know these things can go much longer
I used the wake to sleep tactic last night. Went to sleep, set my alarm for 3 hours later. I heard my alarm going off in a regular dream and woke up. Turned off my alarm and laid still for a moment. I felt it was extremely easy to fall back asleep so I relaxed, closed my eyes and tried to envision the dream I wanted to enter. It took a few minutes but the shapes started to appear along with colors. But the most distinct thing I noticed were sounds and voices that were clear as day. I kept imagining the dream I wanted to enter and eventually I was lucid. My recall of the dream is foggy, but at least I know it worked. I'm going to try the method in this video tonight and I'll repost tomorrow how it went. Also I did experience slight paralysis before falling asleep the first time. But I started feeling extremely tingly in my lower back and I couldn't fall asleep. Could be from the normal back pain I suffer from because of working out. But we shall see how it goes tonight.
Before 2 years i was at school. I really like when the teacher is talking to lay down on my desk with closed eyes. And watch here what happen
1- i was trying not to fall asleep cuz i was at school.
2- at this monent i really didn't know anything about lucid dreaming.
3-after mabye 15-20 minutes. I start seeing one red line. And this line started to form something like carpet or a figure. I was awake so i felt that i am really seen thing lines. But when i focus at the red lines, very scery deamon face jumped in front of me...and this wakes me...but i felt like i wasnt fall asleep 100%
Now i have answer what happend :D
He said ignore noises when trying to go into sleep paralysis. Last night some creepy yell or something sounded like it was by my window caused me to pull up my arms which felt like lead and kept me awake. I did see images and scenes on my eyelids however so I’m going to keep trying wild
I know this is an old video, but I highly recommend you advise against saying WILDs can be done at the beginning of sleep cycle.
It is nearly impossible to do it this way, and it just wastes people's time and demotivates newer lucid dreamers. You must be close to an REM cycle to WILD, and until about 4 hours in your REM periods are only minutes long at best. You'll be laying there for hours before you experience anything significant.
I tried this methode.. still trying , but untill now i lay down wait about 10 min feel really light in my head like really then wake uo next morning.. i cant remember anything. Even not the couple min before waking.. can someone help?
ive had it happen a few times, even though im aware of it and know whats happening and that i just have to take it, gotta be honest its uncomfortable as shit and very disturbing while its happening, but i know i just need to bear it until it ends, im guessing people are different but for some reason my mind always creates disturbing imagery for me
