      Puffin's DEILD Tutorial

      I've learned a few things about DEILDing that I'd like to share in one post. I constantly find myself wanting to say these things whenever people ask about this technique, so I've compiled it all into one post.

      * * *


      1. What is a DEILD?
      DEILD is short for dream exit initiated lucid dream. It's a lucid dreaming induction method that involves the user remaining still, relaxed, and breathing normally right after exiting from a dream. If successful, the user will be pulled into a new dream while keeping their awareness, like a shortened WILD. DEILDing is key if you want to chain multiple dreams together, one right after the other, so you can continue doing whatever you were doing when the dream ended.

      2. When is it easiest to DEILD?
      From experience, I find it easiest to DEILD directly after a lucid dream. This way, I know that I'm dreaming and when I am going to wake up. Most people feel their dreams fading; this is a good time to close your eyes, still in the dream, in preperation for DEILDing.

      3. Does DEILDing have the same effects as WILDing?
      DEILD is in the same family as the WILD technique, meaning it involves tricking your body to think it's asleep. Because of this, using either technique results in sleep paralysis, a naturally occuring state in which you may experience auditory, visual, or even kinetic hallucinations. Nothing can harm you, though.

      4. What does it feel like?
      Different people have different experiences with DEILD. I often feel my bed right after I wake up from a dream, my eyes still closed and my body motionless, but I try to feel the last moments of the dream I just awoke from. After a few moments, I usually feel a strong but not overwhelming "pull/acceleration" forward or backwards, and this is the dream "pulling" me in. The user may also experience sleep paralysis until they find themselves in the dream, but it normally doesn't last more than a few seconds.

      How to DEILD

      This part is divided into two sections, depending on when you want to DEILD:
      - When you wake up from a non-lucid dream.
      - When you wake up from a lucid dream.

      1. Waking up from a non-lucid dream...

      This is the most crucial part if you hope to DEILD without knowing you're going to wake up thanks to lucidity. As the original DEILD tutorial states, autosuggestion helps, and I can vouch for its effectiveness. You can think for a while in bed, "I will be aware when I wake up after each dream, and stay still" or the like. You can also get used to the look of your closed eyelids; spend a while each night observing your closed eyelids, and this will help you stop from opening them after each dream, something that people tend to do. The final preparation step recommended is to practice keeping still after each dream. At first, you may move quite a bit, but stop as soon as you can. After a few days, you should be able to stay still sooner after each dream.
      Doing it:
      You'll have to rely on recognizing that you've just woken from a dream by using the above techniques. Once you find yourself in bed, think strongly of the last dream you had, without moving, and breathe normally as if you were still sleeping. Don't tense up in excitement!
      Remember the last thing you did in the dream you just woke from, and imagine the tactile, auditory, and visual senstaions that accompanied it. For instance, if you were walking along a beach, feel the sand grains seperate over your feet and feel the warmth of the sun. Imagine it as strongly as you can and feel it with your body. If done well, you should find yourself back in a dream.

      2. Waking up from a lucid dream...

      This is a slightly easier way to DEILD, as since you're aware that you're dreaming, you know that the dream will end when it begins to fade out. You may feel your body in bed more and more as the dream ends. At the point where the dream is almost completely gone, close your eyes normally and you should soon feel yourself back in bed.
      Doing it:
      When you find yourself back in bed, don't open your eyes or move, and breathe as if still sleeping. However, since your expectation that you'd wake up from the previous dream can sometimes result in a false awakening. Right after waking, I recommend doing a reality check, but not the regular ones: make your eyes look up as high as they can go; if you get any sort of sensation like the muscles in your eye are being pulled or tingly, it's not a dream, and DEILD by imagining the tactile, auditory, and visual sensations of the last dream scene. If you don't get any sensation at all, even a slight one, you are most likely in a false awakening. In this case, slowly open your eyes and do a reality check.
