      WBTB and SLEEP

      Everytime I do the WBTB method, I get up sleepy, and can easily fall asleep, it feels good. I wake up, go to sleep, wake up, go to sleep. All the way till noon even when it's too late, I feel like I can sleep forever.

      I think the WBTB dings up your sleep a bit. The sleep I'm talking about is the sleep after waking up for 60-90 min.

      PS: I get dreams each interval of sleep...Pretty long, and vivid...Easy to recall....But man...I can never be lucid...I guess I don't do RCs enough...but my dreams are like movies...I just go with the flow...I'm following mah dream script...Hopefully with time I can tell mah self I'm dreaming.

      Well, all in all when you get up after WBTB, ure still sleepy.

      I'm gonna use today as an example (it happends every time...i'm still tired when i get up....and usually I don't stay up 2 hours):

      Slept at 1:30am
      Woke up at 6:40am
      Went back to sleep like at 8:40am
      Dream: woke up at 10?am
      Dream: woke up at 11?am
      Dream (I'm not even sure): woke up at 12:40 pm.!!!

      And I felt like I can sleep for another 1-2 hour intreval....It feels good but.

      Do I get enough sleep when I do it, because I slept alot...and felt all sleepy when I woke up (initial time)

      try sleeping after staying up for less amount of time, for example instead of staying up for 2 hours try staying up for 20-30 minutes or at most 1 hour

      i think 60-90 minutes should be the most you stay up for


      staying up for 2 hours might be too much and might be preventing you from having lucid dreams

      Well that was a fabulous post guardian...

      Stephan LaBerge's research suggest it's best to stay up for 30-60 minutes. 60 minutes gives the best results, and anything after that dramtically decreases.

      I woke up this morning... early and tired... not intending anything else than just try to be awake.. so i crushed on the couch in the living room, trying to look at some OL sports.... but tired as i was my eyes closed and i went with the flow... some minutes later i took myself suddenly in staring onto a computer screen where the clock is... i understood that i was close to a wild but i was still tired... i fought with my self to get awake again and sat up. The clock on my "computer screen" was right, the clock was really 0801
      my point was that this was just 5 minutes after i stood up... a lucky shot!

      it works for me, i only stay up 10-15 minutes though and i have to feel like i'm being presurred to get up, but i don't. Then i slip into an area between waking and dreaming for awile, and eventually fall into a dream. However my dreams lately have not been lucid. Nonetheless the method works for dream recall and increased awareness.
