      Controling startup images...

      Alright I woke up at 5 am last night was up for about 20-30 minutes then laid back down; I admit the images I saw and could form was 100 times higher then normal bedtime's... My question is mainly how can I control these images to enter a lucid dream? How can I step from one side to the other without getting too excited or self concious and still succeed? Please post suggestions.

      Well...i still can't WILD but i think what you should do is NOT try to control the images. You have to observe them and then slowly let yourself go into the dream.

      Thats what happens to me...
      I dont know what to do otherwise because otherwise I stay awake.
      The trick is to let your body slip into a sleep while your still concious.

      Not if you keep your concentration going before trying any tricks. Controlling your breathing while your in an LD also seems to work pretty good...for me at least.

      Yes that is copy/paste.

      The M.I.L.D. Technique

      The M.I.L.D. technique was developed by Dr. Steven LaBerge at Stanford University and is copyrighted by The Lucidity Institute. This technique was devised while LaBerge was writting his doctoral dissertation on lucid dreaming. He needed to come up with a method of inducing lucid dreams in test subjects. After careful experimentation and assistance from his collegue Lunn Levitan, the M.I.L.D. technique was born. M.I.L.D. is an acronym for Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams. There are four steps to this method.

      Step One - Setup Dream Recall:

      Program yourself to recall as much of your dreams as possible when you awaken from them.

      Step Two - Focus Your Intent:

      While returning to sleep, concentrate on your intention to remember to recognize you are dreaming. Repeat to yourself, "The next time I am dreaming, I will realize I am dreaming." Think about the words as you say them, donīt just repeat them meaninglessly. Focus your intent on this idea alone. If you find your mind wandering, clear your mind and continue to repeat the phrase.

      Step Three - See Yourself Becoming Lucid:

      As you continue to focus on your intention to remember to realize you are dreaming, imagine that you are back in the dream from which you just awoke, or another you have had recentlyi if you are just going to sleep or donīt remember a dream apon awakening. Visualize the dream from a first person perspective. This time, though, imagine that you realize you are dreaming. Look for a dream sign (something within the dream that sets it apart from waking reality.) When you see it say to yourself, "I am dreaming!" and continue with your visualization. Imagine that you then carry out the plans you have for your next lucid dream. (i.e. Flying, looking for a spirit guide, travelling to Mars, etc..)

      Step Four - Repeat Until Your Intent is Set:

      Repeat steps two and three until you either fall asleep or you feel confident that your intent is set. While you fade into sleep, if you find your mind wandering or thinking about anything else, repeat step two or three. The last thought on your mind before you enter sleep should be your intent to realize you are in a drean the next time you are dreaming.
