      Possible new way to DEILD?

      So, I was thinking. A DEILD happens when you picture the dream you just had when you wake up, without moving. But what if, you did the same thing, without trying to enter the same dream you were just previously?

      What if you woke up, and concentrated on a dream scene. Would this give you the same result?

      If this has already been a topic, please forgive me.

      a DEILD doesn't require you to re-enter the previous dream; it's just a bit easier to return to something than visualize different surroundings. when i've DEILD'ed successfully in the past i've mostly entered a different setting, so it's definitely something you could try. some people use this to have continuity, but you can be flexible with your approach.

      When I DEILD, all I do is stay still and keep my eyes closed. I don't think about a dream scene, and I usually end up somehwere different. You absolutely could imagine a dream scene forming around you as you attempt to DEILD though. Give it a try and see what happens! Good Luck to you!

      Something's always bugged me:

      On waking, how do you decide whether to: go for dream recall, check for FAs, or do a Deild attempt?

      If you were willing to, or had time to do a DEILD, you should definitely go for the DEILD attempt. Time to do a DEILD is hard to come by for me, so I take any chance I get.

      Otherwise, you should try and remember your dream a bit then reality check. That is if you really badly want some dream recall, but me on the other hand, I have been having so many FAs, I need to start RCing the moment I wake up. Besides, if I forget my dream, it tends to come back to me after about an hour of being awake.

      It just depends on your circumstances.

      The only time I perform or attempt to perform a DEILD, is when I am in already within a lucid dream and I feel myself waking up. I'm basically, terrible at keeping myself within the lucid once I begin to fill myself waking up, so I don't usually bother with stabilization techniques. When I can remember to do it, I DEILD after lucids.

      With FAs (usually), you wake up instantly in bed. If I wake up abruptly/instantly and didn't feel myself gradually waking up, then I perform RCs to see if I had an FA.

      Waking for recall depends on how well your memory is. If the lucid was a real long one, or if I have already chained a few dreams with DEILD, then I usually wake up for recall and write everything down. The more DEILDs you chain or the longer your dream lasts, the easier it is to forget some of it. If the dream was long, but relatively boring, then I'll often DEILD and not worry about forgetting the first one.

      Yea i also become unstable alot so DEILD is like a safety net.

      I usually only try to reenter the dream cause if i try to think too hard or stay awake for too long i start to become more aware of the real world and i drift out of rem

      But yes you can choose to enter a brand new dream scene instead of re-entering your previous one.
