      Craziest occurrence this morning, anyone experience something similar?

      Okay, so as I've written elsewhere on this forum, I'm just getting back into lucid dreaming after a few years of not thinking much of it. Thanks to some generous tips of advice on this forum I've been trying every morning to have a WILD. I was having a hard time at first because of the light that enters my room in the mornings but I bought a mask and its working better now. This morning I had some time to kill. I woke up naturally and tried relaxing and going back into a dream state while remaining conscious. I did for about 20 minutes and then I started to fell the absolute weirdest sensation, my body felt extremely extremely relaxed (I've achieved that part many times before) and it started to feel like there was an electric charge all throughout my body. I starting KIND OF but not really dreaming about being on a mountain. I'm 100% fully conscious at this point, feel like I can open my eyes and get out of bed if I wanted to. Then next thing I know I literally feel someone putting boots on my feet and then I started to feel like I was levitating and swaying left and right with my boots on in my bed. I didn't have a vivid dream going on and I was fully conscious. All the feelings were obviously in my head but at that point I freaked out and forcefully woke myself up.

      Anyone else ever experience something like this? Electric sort of feeling/someone putting boots on them (or similar)/feel like floating over your bed/swaying side to side when trying to do WILD?

      Thanks, all advice appreciated!

      PS: I feel like the mask has really helped me a lot

      This is extremely common among WILDers.

      What does it mean? Am I close to a lucid dream or did I mess up somewhere?

      Firstly, the mask is going to help you a lot. Having a darkness rather than light will allow your phosphene action to really take over, aiding your visualization skills when making out different dream scenarios.

      As for the sensations. You have struck gold. Those sensations are exactly what you want. In my opinion, It's going to help you a lot, by the way you've described them that is. I love getting the 'weighed-down' feeling. The 'pull' pulling you into your bed and spinning you, disorientating your body and allowing you to loose the bodily sensations of lying down on your bed. This allows you to then essentially let go of reality, and then take on your dream body's sensations. The electric/tingling sensations are quite nice as well. I don't really now what is exactly going on to trigger such a stimulation, but either way, It's a nice addition and you know you've let go quite a bit, and are harnessing a nice energy and glow at this point.

      Thanks for the feedback. After ~8 seconds of these feeling I threw in the towel and stopped it from happening any more. What do you think would happen if I just went with it? Would I wind up in a dream?

      Very well could, yeah, if you allow yourself to keep with any images you see, and sort of incubate them. (Give it a little 'push' here and there) Sometimes if the sensation is consciously intensified too much, it can become quite uncomfortable, though. So watch out for that if you're pushing it further to intensify the sensation. If you'd like, create you own scenario or scene. Weather it be a store/cafe you regularly stop at, a large field with a nice view, or anything for that matter. When you get these sensations, try to imagine this place, and go to it. Submerge yourself into it, view it through 'your' 'eyes'. And truly let yourself be consumed into it.
