      I really love all your tutorials and advice Naiya, they're all so inciteful and easy to follow. Visualizing myself lucid in past dreams has proven not only to be effective for me, but I also find it entertaining. This type of method has definitely helped me achieve the few lucids I've had so far over the last few months.
      Love this reminder, thanks Naiya!

      I think my dreams have taken a slow but steady tumble while using this technique.
      Maybe I'm not doing it well enough or I'm doing it wrong, but it seems doing nothing but believing isn't helping my recall at all. I can't even remember my dreams now, I have to rely on the notes I take to remember them in the morning.

      Let me start by saying I do not keep a dream journal or take the time to work on my recall whatsoever.

      Results: I HAD AN LD I decided to imagine a level on a video game I played. Now that I have awoken I am still a little shocked. It seems that I was able to incubate the level, while I was visualizing I was imagining girls all over the place and before I know it I was in the dream and seeing girls I have seen having sex on that level. My lucidity did not come from this but later in the dream though.

      But awesome otherwise.

      For the past 5 nights that I have been doing this method, my dreams have gone down in clarity and number.

      It's not for me, I'm going back to WBTB.

      I've noticed my clarity in dreams reduced as well when starting to use this technique, but I still managed to remember 5-8 dreams each day. I'll keep trying with this technique though, to see if it works.

      Too true. Consistency is the bread and butter of what Naiya is teaching here. If you can't take even that away from this post, then you've got a long, hard road ahead of you.

      Unfortunately, 5 days is not nearly enough time to be able to tell if MILD will work best for you. In fact, 5 days isn't enough to tell that about any technique. For MILD I usually recommend at least several weeks before calling it quits, and that's if you are consistent and do it every night.

      For instance, I've been 'daydreaming' myself to sleep since I was little. Different scenarios, from epic Harry Potter-style battle scenes to calm, relaxing scenarios.

      Very Good question that I do not know how to answer. Awaiting response as well.

      And Naiya, can this technique be used as a stand alone technique if I give it time? Ada is exhausting at times.

      I'm feeling really good about this method, I'm going to give it a shot . The idea of visualizing it and just bringing it home with your mantra seems so simple yet beautiful. It seems like something I'd enjoy doing regardless of the outcome.

      Thank you.

      This will be great for me. I have great visualization and I'm always day dreaming. I have a feeling I will have my first LD soon.

      I actually did this yesterday, friday actually in the morning close to the afternoon or so. I fell asleep in about 10-15 minutes, it was a short amount of time. And I had my first Mild! On top of that, being during the day!

      And this was my first lucid in over a week. I've had many lucids, but this was by far the easiest method for me, especially after practicing for a while. I'm going to try again tonight to see what happends.

      I'm going to relax and clear my mind, and think of a dream seen.

      Hi. I have tried this technique for about 3 days now, and every time it has resulted in a lucid dream! I have never had so many LD's in a row before!!! But today I read about the DEILD technique, and now I'm unsure if it was the MILD technique or a form of DEILD. You seee, every time i got the LDs was after I woke up. After waking up, I opened my eyes, moved a bit, and then tried to sleep again. The dream I got after that was lucid, but not in the start. Sometimes, i just suddenly realized that I was dreaming, or a DC would just come up to me and say "Hey! You're lucid dreaming" then I would say "Hey! You're right!". So, my question is: Is these three dreams MILDs or DEILDs?

      Hm... probably both. Mostly DEILD, but if you really do open your eyes and move a bit, it would probably be from MILD then.
      That's my opinion.

      You should really only do MILD after wbtb. Otherwise it's not effective at all

      No, it shouldn't. With MILD, you do reality checks and mantra's and everything to help become aware in a dream. You can just do to sleep normally and still have it happen. If you combine it with WBTB, you are more awake while asleep (yeah..) so you notice things more than if you were asleep for 4 hours before.

      So no, you don't have to go through S.P. to do MILD.

      For some reason i've never really given MILD a fair shot, but your post really inspired me to do so. Which is why I plan on keeping this up for some time. In fact, during this first week i've briefly become lucid twice, which is encouraging I think this might actually be my thing. Thank you for sharing!

      One ways way to keep it at the front of your mind would be to continually imagine yourself doing various kinds of dream control and then remind yourself that you can because it's a dream. So for example, recall your most recent dream, imagine you RC and become lucid, and then imagine yourself fly, thinking "I can fly because this is a dream." Then go on to imagine yourself remembering any tasks you might want to do, like "What was the Lucid Task of the Month?" So as you go along, just keep casually reminding and affirming that this is a dream. Think of it like a practice run. When you are in the actual lucid dream later, it'll be easier for you to keep yourself lucid and keep on track because you'll be used to associating the lucidity with reminding keeping yourself lucid and remembering what you wanted to do.

      You can absolutely use this technique as a standalone method. The great thing about it is, sooner or later you will get lucid from it. And if you get impatient, you can just keep doing the MILD and consider it your backup, while you do some other techniques like RC or WILD. So if you still need to shop around for other techniques, you'll always have MILD to fall back on and you won't lose time in making progress. And for the record, practicing MILD is really helpful if you want to learn WILD later--the visualization technique I use for MILD is very similar to what I do for WILD.

      Personally, I consider DEILD a form of WILD. Basically, you wake from a dream and then re-enter that dream immediately. So there's no break in consciousness. So it sounds like you had MILDs, but sometimes these things can overlap. A lot of my lucids are like yours, because I wake up in the middle of the night and then MILD again before going back to sleep. In either case, my advice is to just keep doing whatever you're doing. The name or label doesn't matter, so long as it's working for you.

      I wouldn't say it's not effective at all, but you are right that MILD works better with WBTB.

      Generally, no, MILD will not give you SP. It's meant to allow you to fall asleep, go through the normal sleep cycle, and basically RC when you're dreaming or remember that you're dreaming.

      It does seem that MILD isn't as cool or attractive as, say WILD. But I think it's very fun and easy to do. Congrats on your lucid!

      I'm really trying to build up momentum with my MILD and R.C.s. It's hard though, even though I try to do more and more each day, it never seems to be enough. I combine them with WBTB but still nothing.

      I'm going to try WBTB in the morning instead of in the middle of the night tonight. That's if I bother to get out of bed.

      Oh wait, I was going to try out a DEILD alarm method... um... I will leave the alarms, I can't see them working.
