      deep sleep thoughts

      Okay so I try a WILD, I go into deep sleep and I see nothing I am just thinking. Made me realize we are thinking during deep sleep. I was aware that I was asleep but I wasn't dreaming. I couldn't enter into REM sleep for some reason. Maybe exhaustion, I'm an athlete. I train hard during the day and then I spend more time in deep sleep than REM sleep. Gymnastics is important to me, but so is lucid dreaming/having vivid dreams and good dream recall. Any advice?

      I would suggest that you try your WILD's a bit (or a lot) further into your sleep cycle. It seems that you're bumping into a bit of NREM in your WILD attempts, so it might be better to do them later on, when REM periods are very close together. By the same token, I would suggest that you sleep longer, if you aren't doing that already... but still do your WILD as far into your sleep cycle as possible (at least 5 hrs is best), so you can have your lucidity after the repairs from your physical activity have been made.

      But then again, there's nothing wrong with a exploring a little NREM...

      I sleep from around 11 pm until around 10 am or 11 am. I used to have lots of vivid dreams waking up and remembering them. Now its just nothing. No dreams.

      hmm. Well, it's probably more the case that you're not remembering your dreams than it is you're not having them... could it be that your mind is a bit to active upon waking, and your dreams are disappearing too quickly?

      But that should have no effect on your WILD; when did you attempt it?
