      Hi Naiya,

      As a total beginner in lucid dreaming, I tried your MILD method this night and here's what happened :

      Woke up in early morning due to a natural need, then go back immediately to bed with some images and scenes of the dream I just exit from.
      I did visualize a signboard with mantra "I'm dreaming" (in french ^^) on it, this was really easy and great.

      Then i did the visualization exercise, the one where we imagine ourselves being lucid, and go on with the dream scenario.
      I did feel some weird changes in my perception, did reality checks in my thoughts. At some point, I almost did a little sleep paralysis.

      But, as time passed, I found it difficult to fall asleep completely... I mean my mind was wandering from dream scenes to visualisations, reality checks, reading the signboard, etc, but I didn't recall when I really did fall asleep...

      My question is : in this situation, shoud I apply the method a few times, and then let it go and fall asleep, or should I persist in this way and try to transition in a dream, or hopefully a lucid dream ?

      Anyway I will follow your advice and keep at it for 2/3 months !
      Thank you so much for clarifying things (when you begin it kind of complicated haha !)

      Cheers !

      Sleep paralysis cannot really be induced, so don't worry about it

      My question is : in this situation, shoud I apply the method a few times, and then let it go and fall asleep, or should I persist in this way and try to transition in a dream, or hopefully a lucid dream ?
      The ideal would be falling asleep with your mantra/visualization being your last thought, but if you can't relax enough, just practice it for a few minutes then clear your mind and fall asleep normally

      Trying out MILD? This is how you become skilled at it.

      Thank you Naiya for this great tutorial. I have started using it a few weeks ago and have seen a great increase in my LD count. Granted I'm new to Lucid Dreaming and I'm coupling this with many other things, but I mainly use MILD for my lucid dreams before I go to sleep as well as when I wake up from dreams during the night.

      Thanks for this method, it really cleared some things up for me. I feel more motivated to try for a MILD again, and also to continue my visualization practices

      Awesome guide.

      I'd like to add a mantra here:

      I will lucid dream tonight or very soon

      The reason:

      Setting goals is important to add more motivation, but we need to set a reasonable goal based on our skills but not a too easy goal or our mind will lose interest, so this mantra works for everybody because:

      I will lucid dream tonight

      It is very aggressive, as you are pulling yourself to the limit of LDing as soon as tonight. Puts your brain in overdrive to try to accomplish this. Very heavy goal.

      or

      Is a scapegoat for your mind. This prevents frustration of not being able to accomplish such aggressive goal (in case you did not LD of course.)

      very soon

      If you just say, "I will lucid dream within 7 days" or "I will lucid dream" it will always a will, and never accomplish it. Very soon is a way to give a break to your mind, like "okay, if I fail tonight I have an opportunity tomorrow" So there is really no room to fail this goal and thus, no frustration, as it will always be "very soon" but also "tonight"

      Hmmm, tonight I think I'll try this + binural beats. I'll report on it in my DJ. Also, if it works, I'll link the binural beats I used. Wish me luck!

      Also, I've heard saying "lucid dream" in your mantra doesn't actually help. I personally use "I will realize that I'm dreaming".

      It's been over a year and a half since I've actually had a lucid dream, so I'm starting to build it up again. I'll try this technique, it sounds nice because I forget all the time to do a reality check, especially when I'm doing something that requires my concentration.

      I've learned that writing your dreams down in the morning is a great way to wake up in the morning, almost too good. Whenever I write my dreams down (usually takes 30 minutes or more), I'm too awake to go to sleep again, I learned that while trying to do a WBTB, since I usually wake up two or three times before I get about seven or so hours of sleep.

      Just got an idea. Maybe people are more aware of themselves waking up more than others, hence why some people have to fall asleep several times during the night. Just an idea.

      Would you recomend Meditating sometime during the day repeating a mantra? And also I can only fall asleep after a while in bed so I should repeat the mantra then too. Also My mind wanders alot while saying the mantra, Thats normal right? I am very new to this ( When i say that i mean im getting into this alot, I have had one LD so far.) so please answer because i want to LD frequently even if it takes a few years to do that I WILL

      Meditation goes very well with lucid dreaming. My boyfriend has been a meditator for years, and when I taught him the basics of LDing/WILD, he picked it up almost instantly. If your mind wanders, again, meditation is a great way to help yourself learn to maintain focus. It's normal to have your mind wander. Don't get too forceful about it, just gently let the thought happen, and let it then pass away, and redirect your focus back to your mantra.

      Hi Naiya.

      kind a bit confuse here, If I imagine myself lucid during visualization, will it sound like you dreaming about yourself lucid dreaming?, I mean, maybe we have a lucid dreaming but it would came from the visualization that I'm dreaming. Will I get the full awereness?

      Hey naiya, regarding the method of mild with visualization you are in a dream and you become lucid etc etc... Is it OK after doing this practice procedure... Next to it to do another practice like, you visualize your room.while saying the mantra, "when I appear in a different place other than my room it means I am dreaming"? When doing both these practice... Will it make the first practice less effective?

      I feel this is lacking some details or maybe other LD techniques have too many details.

      Is this MILD: I lay on my back with hands to my side. I start to visualize myself doing things like walking into the woods or riding a bike. As I fall asleep this morphs into an LD? Is it that simple?

      Others explain seeing geometric shapes then 3D objects, as if it's a specific sequence of events that must occur.

      I think I've done the above before but something always woke me up. I guess I will try this because the other techniques seem overly complicated and I just get frustrated.

      If you are the type who falls asleep within a few minutes of hitting the pillow, you may not want to lie down for the MILD. Instead, turn off the lights, sit comfortably on your bed, and after at least 5 minutes, go ahead and lie down to sleep, keeping the MILD going as you fall asleep.
      I am the type, unfortunately I fall asleep and stay asleep for the rest of the night. No alarm clock can keep me from turning it off and enjoying my rest. lol.

      So I did love to meditate before sleep and now I will use it to visualize dream scenes. I just can't lie down or I will knock out. But I will keep it going.

      On WBTBs: If you wake up naturally during the night, it would increase your chances of getting lucid if you repeat the MILD when you go back to sleep. If you have the need or want to, you can set an alarm or two at night to increase your chances. It's not necessary, but it can help a great deal. Don't worry about being consistent in the number of MILD attempts per night--it only matters that you do at least once per night total.
      Yea, this is the problem. I am soooo damn tired each night/morning. I am just not in the right state of mind to do mantras.

      -

      I notice my fantasy is limited. When I think of the last dream I had there is realy nothing I want in the dream either. I would not change a thing. Atleast I lacked the incentive to do so. Chancess are this lack of lucid incentive is preventing me from actually lucidly transforming the dream. After all, why would my mind motivate itself to Lucid dream when it can't even find the will to change the dreamscape.

      I would ordinarily change dreamscape entirely or want to atleast. But I figure it is better to do as you say and visualize how you would transform the dream as it is presented before trying drastic changes. Peace.
