      Cool Variation of SSILD - Very effective

      Hi everyone,

      as the title suggested let's talk about SSILD.

      If you are interested in FA(false awakening), then you must try out my variation of SSILD. Originaly SSILD are made from people which were heavy sleepers and is a very distracting for light sleepers like me. I can't fall asleep after the cycles, so it just make me lose sleep.

      I really wanted SSILD to work because, when I looked in detail my dream journal. I saw that, I have almost zero chance to get lucid from my every day dreams. Which are horror and sci-fi+action most of the time, so I'm very busy running and shooting If I have a normal dream(slice of life), I have up to 20% chance of lucidity, but if I have FA my chance jump to 70%. So I find a less distracting way to get a FA. Instead of sense induced, I use count induced. It's very simple and effective way to become lucid.

      When very relaxed or tired, just before fall sleep(you hear me right), wbtb, napping. Count slowly in your head with closed eyes from 1..100 while keeping your consciousness. Then just fall asleep normally and watch out for FA. If you suddenly feel wide awake make a reality check to catch a FA. This is one very non tiring technique with very high success.

      Additionally you can ajust it for your sleeping. If you can not fall asleep then count to 1..50 instead, but if you fall distract very quickly you can try counting from 100..1(backward). For this technique to work properly, you must believe in it.

      I'm interested in your experiences, so maybe you can share them here.

      I will try to answer any question you have.

      Most of you will not believe that such a simple method can work, but sometimes simple things work best. And to make it clear this is not CILD (count induced lucid dream), in which you fall asleep while you count and move into dream.

      The purpose of my method is to ground yourself by keeping consciousness while counting 1..100 and then falling asleep normally. In most cases, it will reproduce a false awakening, but other times will give you more awareness in normal dream for DILD. As I said, it would be more effective for people who fall asleep hard and most methods do not work for them. Combining it with reality checks during the day will be twice as effective. And most importantly, this method also works when you go to bed for the first time, although most people say there is no REM-sleep at this time.

      Perhaps in the future, I will think of a suitable name for him.

      Interesting!
      Are you saying that you have had success with this technique even just after falling asleep, and that it doesn't require a WBTB or waiting to the latter part of the night to work?

      Yep, you heard me right

      In 60% of the time when I try, I'm getting a FA and starting to think "wait did't I just fall asleep and why there is a donkey in my room"

      Well, it's funny because I've often had very vivid dreamlets just after falling asleep, and so what you say isn't crazy to me. However, whenever I've tried to WILD at the beginning of the night, it's never worked.

      I researched a little around this and maybe this is my fault. I have insomnia(2 hours most of the time), so maybe I have some rem at beginning of my sleep. But this method is not effective for WILD, for WILD you can try CILD instead.

      This is a good method. I have seen it in a forum in China.
