If not watch my video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoYmbBptd0s but why is it so DIFFICULT to get the wild method to actually work? Well, chances are you're not meditating enough for one, but also you might be doing it wrong. ************************************** SECOND CHANNEL (Daily Vlogs, pls subscribe!): https://www.youtube.com/user/transcendyourlimits Get over 70% OFF my Lucid Dreaming Udemy course with this coupon code: 'HOWTOLUCID' here: https://www.udemy.com/the-ultimate-guide-to-lucid-dreaming Discount On Mind Machines For Meditation: http://howtolucid.com/best-mind-machines/ (And enter code HTL10) My Lucid Dreaming BOOTCAMP Course: http://howtolucid.com/30-day-lucid-bootcamp ************************************** OTHER USEFUL LINKS FOR YOU!

Lucid dreaming (sometimes called astral projection although they're not quite the same) is the ability to become SELF AWARE in your dreams, meaning you can control them. Being able to elevate your consciousness like this is something anyone can learn! There are also many benefits to lucid dreaming, such as improved sleep, more energy, more confidence, and more restorative sleep. Not to mention the fact you can become more CONSCIOUS and experience the impossible! Why not?! You're gonna be asleep for a third of your life anyway, let's use that time! I'm Stef and I run howtolucid.com and this YouTube channel (and a couple of others), dedicated to helping you learn to control your dreams. I've been lucid dreaming for over 7 years now and I have a passion for dreams and travel. Follow my journey!

What do you think, do you find the WILD method difficult? (Also here's my video on the WILD method is this is new to you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoYmbBptd0s)

Basically what I'm asking is if I can get that paralysis so easily, then the concentration afterwards should bring about the rest, right? Since it's very easy for me to stay awake during the paralysis? I do OBES, but as I'm waking. Can't seem to get lucid dreaming down very well, though. I know, makes no sense, but please let me know if just adding some concentration (while in paralysis) will doje rest. Thanks! 🙂

I'm Pretty used to sleep paralysis, happens almost every night as I'm drifting off, and sometimes it's very hard to break it, even when I try moving my feet, my top half will still keep freezing up, and all I have to do is stop moving for a second and I'm screwed! (Meaning it being unpleasant when not brought on myself)

@Flozillator man i used to do that till i had a sleep paralysis and i was breathing but some entity was breathing with me so be careful
Flozillator (10 months ago)
When I meditate (2x10mn a day), I count my breathings. Is it ok if I do it during a WILD ? Thanks for all the help you're giving me. :)

I’m trying so so hard and it’s not working! I feel vibrations, tingling and feel like I’m falling and I feel like I’m starting to do it, then my eyes open! :( it took me several months to have my first lucid dream using dild and even then I couldn’t control anything. Ughhhhh the people saying it’s easy are annoying😑
Miriam Lynn Hill (1 month ago)
I have to say it... your hair practically gave me a heart attack when the video started. It's just so pooffy! 😂 Don't get me wrong, I love it. It's just that I haven't really watched a recent video of your's. Before, you had a more shaped look, which I loved too. But now you could say your hair's a bit.... WILD. Okay, I'll leave now.... 👋😂💖
It's more managed now. Man bun look

It’s so easy

The reason why I try to do lucid dream is becouse i dont remember my dreams and hasent since the past 4 years and so I cant do any other theqnicue than wild cuz most of them needs you to remember your dreams I have vary good engrish
Trainer Red (5 months ago)
I am hearing a lot of different things from different channels. One video says you have to stay focused while attempting WILD, Another says your mind needs to relax just as much as your body does, And now this video is saying the opposite again. *_Which one is it?_* I've been trying to lucid dream in general for 8 months now, and I've been attempting WILD specifically for 3 weeks straight. I unfortunately haven't gotten any results and I'm starting to feel discouraged.
KatieL Elwood (3 months ago)
I'd say keep at it, i have been doing nothing but the WILD technique since i first discovered lucid dreaming, for the past 5 months i have primarily been doing WBTB + WILD and since then i have only recently had a lucid dream where i was partially aware but it is not all about the lucid dreaming at first. I kept making progress in the beginning, going through the horrible roll over signals and then experiencing the colourful images and just falling asleep a lot, the roll over signals, colourful images and feelings of paralysis are results i would say, so have you experienced any of the roll over signals/images or has literally Nothing happened at all?

I find it absolutely fascinating that our brain is unimaginably intelligent yet we can still watch videos on how to trick it in thinking our body is asleep... to then trick it into thinking our body is asleep that same night xD thanks for the video i find them helpful :)
SleekismBoyz (5 months ago)
For the wild technique was way easier than the others and I didn’t even have to wake up at fucking 3am just to do it
Maia draconica (7 months ago)
i have yet to make it ti the sleep paralasys stage cause i get the jitters.
Alia Ramla (8 months ago)
But i'm a new lucid dreamer and i can do it easily. Why do you think it's so difficult ?
That Person (10 months ago)
My problem is just that i cant get my body to fall asleep in the first place while doing the WILD technique, i used to be able to do it now i just randomly cant
hanny king (5 months ago)
Take a day where o du a lot of things and make ur body and mind tired it works better if ur tired when trying I tried it at 1 am last night and succeeded only for 1 hour tho cuz I freaked out
Hazy Black (10 months ago)
Got a few questions: 1. What if I need to swallow my spit? Does it affect this? 2. Every time I see a hint related to the dream world (For ex - vividly imagining the floor hovering above me for a second or a milisecond), I can feel my heartbeat races out of excitement and that vision disappears. Are these related? Or these small visions are meant to disappear and the heartbeat isn't related?
That Person (10 months ago)
idk it could be
Hazy Black (10 months ago)
Is my excitement when I see it a problem?
That Person (10 months ago)
I personally cant do the WILD technique anymore, but i used to and YES you CAN swallow, you do it in your sleep, its only a problem if you make it a problem. I as well as alot of my friends swallow and still fell asleep, as for the 2nd thing i think it may be the hypnagogic stage or sleep paralysis
Joseph Zins (10 months ago)
I feel like sometimes I just go back to sleep and don't really focus or try. But all of a sudden, I start feeling my body paralyze itself and my mind wakes up and I become aware again. The process feels incredible and gives me euphoria! I think this is the black void because at this point, I can start thinking about things and then the dream will form based on those thoughts (besides how good the vibrations feel.) I could probably do it intentionally but this happens pretty often enough, like when I don't feel too busy in life and WANT to have lucid dreams during these times periods. When I'm busy, I only get like 4 hours of sleep and maybe have 1-2 dreams regular. This is my way of balancing it and it works very well for me. But maybe I am focusing, just in pure meditative state, not even thinking about that. Who knows? Anyways, helpful video regardless.

Lucid dreaming in general is difficult.
Little T 1379 (10 months ago)
I have been studying lucid dreaming on and off for around 2 months. The past 2 weeks all I have done all day everyday is hard research and I have started to take it seriously as in doing reality checks, wrong down my dreams and meditating twice daily. I noticed that my first few attempts I couldn’t actually fall asleep in the first place to do a wild, the thought off lucid dreaming kept me awake. The next attempts while doing a wild I woke up at 4:30am and lay perfectly still. I had struggled perfecting the swallow reflex and got past it. I then lay still not moving a muscle for over an hour and nothing happened. I gave up after an hour and a half of lying still and I could still move, my arms were a bit tingly but nothing else. Any recommendations on what to do? I’m not sure if it was because I hadn’t got enough sleep before or not or if I’m doing something wrong that’s stopping me going into sleep paralysis. Also, there wasn’t any colours/ shapes behind my eyes or anything. Please help, thanks

hanny king same
mylotics (4 months ago)
Make sure you have a good sleep schedule. For me i go to sleep everyday at 9:30 am so i would wake up at 3:30 am and try lucid dreaming.
hanny king (5 months ago)
I have only tested it once but I managed on the first try but only for 1 hour the thing I did was I got realy tired so I didnt think so much cuz both my body and mind was tired it was about 1 am so i played on my back and focused on the eye lid not to hard and just layed there after a while I got itches and I wanted to turn around but managed to keep still. When the itching and and stuff stopped I could feel it starting to numb in my foot continuing up my legs then my arms and soon everything except my chest was numb becouse I was breathing pretty heavily about 30 after that my chest went numb and it started to spin I couldn't see anything and was more like freaking out at this time and the spinning kept going faster making me sick until I woke up. This whole experience made was so real I didnt believe I did it properly until today becouse I noticed that it felt like 20 mins but it was for about an hour I dunno if this helped but I wanted to share my experience So I would recommend getting realy tired and testing it not after u wake up just do it when u go to bed I did this yesterday and still feel sick
That Person (10 months ago)
Another thing about me is i notice myself waking up literally, really tired super early in the morning and when i dont move and remember to stay still to do the WILD, i just wake up more even when i dont move a muscle
That Person (10 months ago)
Same exact problem i have
ricitis io (10 months ago)
how long do i have to meditate to be trained enough for WILD method?
hanny king (9 days ago)
@Andon Giese I haven't done it a lot of times so I cant say much becouse I got scared the first time but I the only tips i can give you is to be really tired when u try it. And be sure to be 100% sure u dont move your body becouse the mind will start to make the body twitch and itch and touch have to fight that not by stretching the muscles but by just laying there and not moving after that you will feel the body go numb which is a sign that u succeded
Andon Giese (9 days ago)
@hanny king I need help I can't do wild and I need tips
hanny king (5 months ago)
I didnt meditate anything and still managed to do it
TheMoonKingdom (10 months ago)
I had a WILD, last night, I had taken a nap earlier in the day, so when I went to bed; I was only mildly tired. I lay on my back for bit feeling restless like I might not get to sleep. Anyway, I did progressive relaxation, & dozed for a few seconds without realizing it. I was still laying on my back but much more relaxed & alert. I back to see hypnagogic dream scenes flash for awhile. Then they stopped & I noticed that I was seeing my room through closed eyelids. So, I decided to take the chance & get up. It felt like the classic OBE, as I was standing in my room looking at my body on the bed. anyway, I levitated a few feet up as further proof to myself. Then flew off to have fun exploring:) Also, I've practiced meditation for many years; it helps for sure.

Hey I have been searching Google and online forms from so many days for my doubts ,but couldn't get an answer ,but I think you can answer my question, which is that in WILD technique does your dream begin with an OBE and do you FLOAT to your desired location in your lucid dream? Or you end up directly in your dream .. Curious to know this as the idea of floating and entering dream is so amazing. And second question is that ,if thats the case isn't WILD technique astral projection or similar?
Alex (10 months ago)
Ive been trying wild for 1 to 2 weeks and I find it still quite difficult. Thx for the tips!
ricitis io (10 months ago)
Alex don't do it every day and it should be fine...
David Moronta (10 months ago)
I’m a night shifter, marijuana user and side sleeper. Are these factors negatively affecting my lucid dream attempts?
Purple Kardiac (10 months ago)
same man
Neil Joseph (10 months ago)
Marijuana and night shift definitely. Side sleeper doesn't really matter too much
I find it quite weird, I'm a natural lucid dreamer but it appears that the closest thing I can explain it is DILDs. I wanna try other methods but I feel it might break something... I don't know.
TheLuckystar 10 (10 months ago)
I am somewhat new to the whole thing,been trying for about 2-3 weeks now, haven’t really succeeded but I’ve been more relaxed, Able to sleep easier, and I’ve been able to recall my dreams more often,so even if I’m not lucid dreaming yet,I’m still getting something out of it,also I’ve been recalling dreams where I can somewhat control them but am not lucid,are these vivid dreams?

Awesome, I'm going to be offering private coaching on my site soon (over the next month or so) if you're interested, but failing that just keep trying, mix up your methods and reality checks, and stay positive!
Avishai (10 months ago)
