      My WILD technique that might get me killed some day + a nice tip for fixing bugs in LD's.

      Clickbait? You'll have to read on to find out.

      I'd say 50-80% my LD's are WILDs, but they don't really follow the normal route. I set intentions before I go to sleep from time to time, but WILD to me is not planning to do WILD and then running through a procedure. It is a kind of gaining awarenes behind closed eyes and realizing that I'm close to sleep and can fall asleep in a minute. Very often, the reason I become aware of this is an auditory hallucination, often combined with a physical hallucinations.. This ranges from just weird sounds to on rare occations fucked up, scary and painful experiences. Today, I heard that somebody was in my apartment, and though I never opened my eyes to investigate, it turned out to be some sort of animal which jumped into my bed. It's extremely life like, and I am always a bit scared that i'm not hallucinating, but since it has happened so many times I tend to just relax and wait. But... if somebody decides to rob or kill me during the night, I'll be in trouble I'll just be laying there going "oh yesssss... time for lucids

      Anyhoo... once I find myself in this state, all I really do is relax and wait for the right moment to open my eyes. Sometimes I'll do some visualization or spend the time working on awareness. But the main focus is that I need to be aware of slight changes in my physical sensations. Thats because of how often this type of WILD turns into a dream about lying in bed waiting to LD, and does so without hardly any sansational notification. Other times the transition is more obvious and I experience crazy gravity or other "bugs in the physics engine" during the transition. Another common transition is a strong urge to roll over. Now if I reach the end of the bed during this roll, I just keep going. And I just fall on the floor. But it's ok. Because I know that if I want to roll so bad, that I'd be willing to risk hurting myself, it means my real body must be asleep and the dream has started without me noticing. After the transition I just open my eyes get ready and leave my apartment through a door, window or portal-painting. If you haven't, use paintings as portals like in Super Mario 64. But make sure you look at them first. Dreams create awesome art and there's new ones every time.

      WILDs like this started happening after doing a lot of normal WILD, DEILD, and other techniques that rely on the transitioning. So if you want to learn it I think you need to practice the transition untill you can do it really well without having time to prepare mentally. And though it started happening to me randomly, I'm sure it could be acchieved by priming your mind to becoming aware in those moments...

      Why would you learn it though? Seems like a bad idea... But if you live somewhere safe, and you're not worried about people breaking into your house. This is the easiest type of WILD. You get to skip the annoyance of being woken up by a WBTB alarm. You get to skip the long winded stretched out uncomfortable waiting to fall asleep part of WILD. You just become aware, transition and LD. And my success rate is probably about 95%

      I also wanted to mention a tip that I have been using to solve different problems related to visuals in LDs and had a lot of success with. If you have a bug in your LD that might be related to vision, just close your eyes and figure out how to see with your dream-eyes closed. Hold up your hand in front of your face and identify the fingers. Touch stuff etc. It just takes a few moments once you get good at it, but it seems to work as a kind of reset. One thing that is a common problem that is easily fixed with this technique are black spots in your vision. I for example sometimes get only half the visuals, the top half might be black. If I do the closed eyes technique it's fixed.

      But be aware... This is a great way to decrease or loose your lucidity as well. So reality checks etc. are reccomended during and after.

      Do you still do a WBTB and do your WILD technique after some hours of sleep?
      I assume you do....

      Sounds an interesting technique. Thanks for sharing.

      What do you do so as not to fail and simply fall asleep?

      I have an alarm that turns itself off automatically a couple of times a week, and I can increase the chances of having one of these significantly by doing WBTB and MILD. But these WILDs are unrelated to any procedure or alarm. I don't really do anything to prepare or make it happen other than think about LD's and be aware during the day. It just happens by itself.

      Sometimes it happens right after I go to bed, I'll just lay down and go to sleep normally, not doing anything special...just drift off... but I suddenly become aware and conscious again in the moments right before I fall asleep.

      Other times I become aware in the middle of the night, some times because of an hallucination, other times for no obvious reason... I realize that I'm almost asleep and that if I do my thing I can transistion into an LD. When it happens like this I don't remember anything that happened before it... No dreams... nothing... I just suddenly know: oh... I'm almost asleep.

      There is a feeling that comes right before you fall asleep. When I feel that I often snap out of unconsciousness, and that's how it works. Not sure why it happens, but I'm glad.

      Hope that clears it up

      Excuse me if I misunderstand your question... But... "something" makes me conscious again when I'm seconds away from falling asleep... I don't know what it is... But I'm sure it can't be too hard to make it work for others. It started happening to me without trying... so if we could understand why it happens to me, then we could make it happen to others.
