    WILD/DEILD experiment - Preventing myself from waking up / Flying with Yuya / Japanese Temple

    , 08-25-2011 at 03:20 PM (1314 Views)
    I decided to experiment with alarm timers last night.
    What I basically did was setup my pc so that it would produce a very loud beep at certain times during the night in order to wake me up.
    I figured this way I wouldn't have to move (to turn off an alarm for example) and I could make numerous WILD / DEILD attempts during a single night.
    This is obviously not a new idea, but I haven't tried anything like if before.
    I set the alarms to start after approximately 5 hours of sleep, and then repeat in intervals of 20 minutes for 2 hours.

    I wake up thinking the first alarm must have gone off, but I didn't really hear anything.
    I'm a bit disorientated but try to remember any dreams.
    I recall there being some dream with me driving my car, but no specifics.
    Then the alarm goes off. It's quite a bit louder than I thought it would be.
    Weird, I must have woken up before it actually went off for the first time.
    I then attempt to WILD but fall asleep too quickly.

    That must have been the second alarm. Unfortunately I moved quite a bit, I think a DEILD is out of the question.
    I try to recall any dreams but I can't remember anything whatsoever.
    I close my eyes and attempt another WILD.
    Surprisingly, I immediately get quite strong HH.
    Not only do I get pretty vivid images and lighting flashes, but I also hear voices.
    This is quite odd, it's never this intense...
    Hold on a second...
    I open my eyes and to the nose plug RC.

    I'm dreaming! This is a FA... of course... how did I not think of that?
    I float out of bed towards my pc to see if there's anything on the monitor, but it is turned off.

    I wake up again, pretty sure of having heard the last half of the alarm sound.
    I wonder if this is another FA and realize that this method will obviously cause quite a few FA's and I can't test for them properly if I'm not supposed to move.
    But I moved yet again anyways, so I just plug my nose again. I'm pretty sure that I'm awake.
    I attempt another WILD, this time focusing stronger on remaining conscious.
    I feel more "clear in the head" than before and feel like I have a good chance of success.
    I quickly get vivid blue plasma HI, followed by faint memories of images.
    They go on for a short time and I am unsure of what I'm supposed to do, so I just wait it out, hoping to enter a lucid.
    A first scene forms of be being on a couch with a few people I do not know.
    I am right on the verge of entering a lucid dream, I know it, but the scene vanishes.
    But is is quickly followed by another scene.
    There's snow... a road... people walking the road towards... some kind of temple?
    It looks Japanese... people are wearing kimonos.

    It's now or never, I have to act.
    I try to jerk my dream body forwards, into the scene...
    Gravity! I fall for maybe half a meter and my feet hit the snowy road.
    My whole body is buzzing, but these vibrations quickly turn into senses.
    I can feel the cold wind on my skin and... ouch!
    My feet are SO COLD. I'm standing barefoot in the snow.
    It is so cold that it nearly hurts, but for some reason it feels really good.
    I try to further stabilize the dream by rubbing my hands, but then I get a better idea.
    I grab some snow from the road and rub it over my naked chest and it feels incredibly good.
    The coldness even causes me to shiver.

    Some DC's are giving me odd looks as they are walking past me towards the temple.
    I decide to join them and investigate what's going on in the temple, it's not very far away.
    This dream is really stable. I bet it has to do with the constant feeling of coldness, which is triggering many of my senses.
    I wish coldness and snow would feel this awesome in waking life... I hate winter in waking life.
    I reach the temple, which is more of a gate actually.
    Behind it is a meeting of many Japanese people wearing traditional clothing.
    There's water in the center, a bit like a swimming pool, but very natural.
    Some women are dancing on this water, with particles of light floating out of the water.
    It reminds me of a scene from FFX:

    I wake up yet again.
    I wonder if this is another FA.
    Not wanting to move, I attempt to levitate my dream body upwards... which sort of works.

    I have some trouble separating my dream body from my real body, but finally I'm floating in my room.
    It's different from before, it's like I still feel the attachment to my real body.
    I have to think of this dream: Out of body? - Dream Journals - Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views
    I try to avoid looking at my real body still in bed, remembering that it freaked me out last time.

    I wake up again.
    This time I managed not to move, I even still have my eyes closed.
    I try not to think, but I end up thinking that I want to meet Yuya.

    A new dream scene forms... it's Teraluna!
    Amazing! I look around and notice that I'm sort of floating in the air.


    It's Yuya!


    She points towards the ground.
    I look down and realize that I am floating about 2 meters above the ground.
    And obviously, at this specific moment, I stop floating.
    I fall into a tiny river which is right next to Yuyas place.
    I quickly emerge from the water and hold on to the terrace the river is flowing by.
    Yuya is right in front of me and bursts out laughing.
    I have to laugh myself, this is so typical of me.

    I get out of the water.
    The shock of falling into the river was actually a good thing, it "woke me up".
    I talk with Yuya about numerous things, including the dream I just had where I rubbed snow onto my chest.

    "I thought you didn't like snow."
    "I certainly don't in waking life."
    "You call it mud."
    "It usually is, but the snow in the dream was so pure, it was so different."

    We're sort of staring at the landscape during our conversation and I casually put my left arm around her waist.
    Where does this confidence come from? Usually I'm quite shy around her for some reason.
    After we discuss a few more things Yuya presses her back against my chest.

    "Hold me!"
    "Hold on to me!"

    I put both of my arms around her wondering what's going on.
    Within a split second everything turns very dark and my body vibrates.
    I can hear the very loud sound of the alarm going off.
    I no longer feel, I can't hear anything besides the alarm and I can barely see.
    I try to concentrate on the warmth of Yuyas body which is pressed against mine, since it's the only thing I'm still able to feel clearly.
    As the alarm sound stops, my senses gradually come back and after a few seconds I can see and feel clearly again.

    "Holy shit!"
    "Did we just prevent myself from waking up?"
    "We did indeed."
    "This is amazing... You're amazing! ..."
    "Ain't I?"

    She says, sticking out her tongue. I have to laugh.

    "Let's go!"

    Yuya grows water wings and takes off.
    I quickly summon my phoenix wings and go after her.
    We leave Haven and fly through the tree crowns of Teraluna.
    We're flying quite a bit slower than last time, enjoying the mysterious and beautiful landscape of Teraluna...

    I wake up again and decide to take some notes.
    I look at my mobile to check the time and realize that all 6 alarms have already passed.
    I must have missed a few of them.
    I go back to sleep and wake up again after a total of 9 hours of sleep.
    But I still feel sort of tired. I did have 6 alarms going off during the night, I guess this makes sense.

    Anyways, this was an interesting experience, and I'm probably going to try this again soon.
    The feeling of preventing yourself from waking up was quite something!

      Cool dude, I imagine that with enough attention and dedication, you could force your mind to stay in REM all night.

      This is really really interesting! Do you think it was Yuya's presence which stopped you from waking up? Or the attachment to the senses of holding Yuya with your dream body which stopped it?

      I think what really helped was that I focused on the only remaining senses of my dream body.
      We know things like rubbing hands or spinning can stabilize a dream that is falling apart, and I think this is pretty similar.
      I bet that expecting to be able to stay in the dream also played a role though.

      Yeah, that hand rubbing thing you do, hyu, helps me a lot. I read awhile back some of your entries and doing the hand rubbing thing. I started doing it last week when my dreams started fading, and it works really well. The only thing, though, is sometimes after i stop rubbing my hands it falls apart. One dream i think i was rubbing my hands the whole time trying to stay in the LD lol, i probably looked like some creep to the dc's.
      Hyu and tashows like this.

      Lol, this actually happens to me quite often.
      I'm just minding my own business, stabilizing the dream by rubbing my hands or using other techniques,
      and suddenly I notice that all of the DC's are staring at me with this "wtf is he doing?" look on their faces.
      I find it quite amusing.

      That's pretty sweet!! I've always wondered how one could go about preventing a seemingly inevitable awakening. Good job!!

      The extreme about this instance is that you did hear the sound of the alarm going off (which means you were able to hear something from waking life), but still had some senses from the dream! Or could the alarm you heard be an FA (false alarm)? :p

      I'm pretty confident that I heard the actual alarm.
      I have heard things happening in waking life in my dreams before, such as my father entering my room.
      That's usually just before waking up though.
