      Nice! SSILD is my favorite technique and has been quite a reliable inducer for me over these years.

      Do you mind sharing how exactly you do SSILD? Do you add some of your own methods to it? Or just follow the normal routine of the cycles?

      From my about me page:

      How I perform SSILD:

      "My variation with the cycles is to do two breaths focusing on the backs of my eyelids, two breaths focusing on hearing and then two breaths focusing a tactile feeling (I use the pressure that I can feel in my sternum area when laying on my back). This "warm-up" reminds me of how to focus on each of the 3 senses that make up SSILD and takes however long it takes to take 6 total breaths...unless I start over due to feeling too sleepy to get the three points of focus correct. Then I combine the 3 senses into each breath. I focus on vision as I start to breathe in. I focus on hearing as I am at the transition from breathing in to breathing out. I focus on feeling as I am breathing out. When I am trying to DILD I will do this for 2-3 minutes and then attempt to fall asleep. Not being able to fall asleep on occasion is when I started experimenting with WILDs, sometimes with my sole intention being just to get to sleep but then when noticing the HH's I would remember various things I read about WILDing and experiment with them. Sometimes I would just fall asleep but more and more I was starting to succeed at WILDs. I found that my SSILD variation helps my WILDs in two ways. The first is that it does seem to create a bit of a trance like state which seems to help keep my mind from getting too active with "the noise" as Sageous says. The other way I feel it helps is like a WILD anchor, it is something to keep my intention in place while helping to create the fine line between just enough consciousness needed to become lucid and not so much consciousness that you stay awake. When trying to WILD I will do more repetitions of the combined cycles in each breath than when trying to DILD, but I may stop for a while especially if HHs occur. I may go back and do the combined cycles a few more breaths depending on if it feels right or if nothing seems to be happening. A few times I gave up, rolled over and only then did I quickly start to transition into a dream."

      If you want to see some of the back and forth clarification regarding this style of SSILD that I went through in a member's workbook you can find it by using control-f (find) with the search term "cycle" on the following page:

      That was a nice read! I'll be sure to give that way you do it a try. :smile:

      Not much to Remember from last night but ill type what i remember.

      Me and a group of people where in Prison ( I must of doing something bad in my dream lol) Although It didn't look like a prison, There were no cells of any kind. It was more of a feeling being locked up. Of course there were guards so we could not go outside. We tried to escape many times but the last escape attempt caught my eye. I'm outside and all I can see if mud, grass and dead trees. I was trying to run away as fast as I could but I weren't going anywhere, I was stuck on the spot. That's all i remember from the dream, but the last part stood out beyond everything else that happened. It felt good to experience "something" that would not happen in waking life.

      I was just looking through the workbook and look at how long and detailed my dreams use to be and now I barely remember anything, Now i'm back to square one.

      I need to start going to bed earlier, Been going to bed really late alot of the times, since I can't sleep at times, Most times im up till like 4am. So, Let's start from the beginning, Get my sleeping schedule back to a reasonable time. Intend to remember my dreams, but the only problem i have how can i write down my dreams without waking up Girlfriend next to me? That's the only problem. Once i find a way, We can continue from there.

      You can work on what I like to do: keep a mental (no recording) list of dreams throughout the night: every waking, review the list of dreams up to then, and add the new ones to it. For each dream, "record" a few key words and mental images, go over the list a few times, then head back to sleep. Then in the morning, grab a voice recorder and quickly record the list, then later transcribe to DJ. Some detail for earlier dreams does tend to suffer but it's a good memory workout and when i was doing it a lot I got pretty good at it. Give it a try!
