      Can someone tell me where I go wrong?

      Alright I tried a WILD last night. I got up after around five or six hours then went to the bathroom and walked around until I felt like I was tired, but not tired enought to fall right back asleep. I got into my bed found a comfortable position, I didn't move and I started counting my breathes. I think I managed to count to around the 700 range. I kept getting distracted no matter how hard I focused. I just couldn't keep my head clear. There would even be times where I would be counting and there would be images to go along with the counting like it went from being just black to a guy picking up and moving signs with the numbers on them. I kept clearing the images away and tried to focus on my counting because I didn't want to fall into non-lucid sleep. Eventually I just got stuck counting and was so tired that I didn't even care anymore then just gave up and went to sleep. All before then I didn't seem to be progressing at all. I know the stages are first SP, which I think I got I had that "tingly" feeling, plus a lack of feeling, but I could roll over when I just decided to give up and go to sleep. The next step is hypnotic imagery, but I kept getting things that were far far more like random thoughts then any parts of a dream. How do I WILD correctly? I really want to LD. Besides just for fun I really want to do it for understanding things about my self and trying to understand others (through use of DC's)

      I'm not saying you went wrong anywhere. Everyone's methods are different and you can't lucid every attempt unless of course you've mastered it. I would concentrate on the visuals images and work with that. Counting is a way to stay focused but easily distracted. I feel; it's easier to follow an image into the dream world than it would be to count to some high number only to keep yourself awake.

      And you can try other methods like self-hypnosis. Theres a whole tutorial on it in the Tutorials Section.
