      This night I tried WILD technique. I woke up about 2.30 pm and immediately tried doing it. Didn't want to do WBTB because I thought it will be hard to fall asleep (I have tried it once some time ago). I started counting from 100 to 1. I was constantly losing my number and started over again or just from almost random number. At least I knew I was going the right direction. After some time I felt interesting vibrations, started losing feeling of my real world body. And again I'm back in my body. This was happening repeatedly. I understood that counting keeps me awake. Also I heard my old clock ticking. So I thought I will do WILD all over again, rolled over and started visualizing numbers but I still said them in my head... For some reason I rolled over again. Decided to try it the last time. I wasn't counting just watching whatever appears in my vision. I imagined a room. It was dark and in this room was table with some things on it. I could barely see. I went to the table, knew I had to touch, grab something to stabilize a dream. At this point I didn't feel my real world body. I was touching the table and things I didn't understand what they were. I found a pistol and took it. It felt so REAL. It was a bit cold, I felt it's texture. I didn't know what to do next, I needed to touch other things. I put down the pistol but the table was with the same unclear things. I returned to my body. The clock ticking was so irritating. I never had a problem with that before. Decided just go back to sleep normally. But I couldn't fall asleep for so long! I think I fall asleep after 4 am. And I thought I never do WILD again...

      So the first thing I'm worried about is that I don't know if in my third WILD try I was dreaming or it was just my visualization. Because clearly I visualized that room. For some reason I forgot to do a reality check though I was aware of false awakenings and always done my RC between rolling over.

      Second, I think I woke up too early. It was only after ~3 hours of sleep. So it should be a long time of sleeping till REM. Next time I will use alarm-clock.

      P.S. Sorry again for my English. It is pretty good exercise for me

      Welcome to the class, Valor!

      From your description, it sounds to me that you were able to have a lucid dream, so congrats! One of the issues with wilds is that since you start in a dark room with eyes closed and transition to the dream straight away, the dream environment naturally starts from a darker background. It takes a bit for the dreaming mind to build the scene.

      At any rate great job so far. For you next attempt, I would suggest trying a different visualization - maybe a very green meadow or a sunny beach and try interacting with the enviroment as much as possible.

      NyxCC, thank you for replying! Next time I will try imagining sunny beach

      Every night before sleep I'm trying MILD. For some reason this night I couldn't concentrate on my visualization... Also I would like to ask what is the most important thing in visualization, is it understanding that I'm dreaming? Is it details, feelings or else? Because I have a feeling that I do something wrong. I visualize how I become lucid in a dream, doing reality checks, trying to touch something, then just doing my goals.

      Plus, I need to work more with my dream sings because they repeat over and over again.

      Since I identified my dream signs, they are appearing more and more frequently. But they still do not yet help me be lucid!

      thinkfirst, I think we should improve our day awareness. Every time we see our dream sings or even think about them, we must do a reality check. Some of my dream signs are certain places or people and I found myself thinking a lot about them. So whenever I think about those places or people I'm trying not to forget to do RC.

      I got very distracted from lucid dreaming in waking life, lost my dream recall. I didn't do anything for lucid dreaming for about a week, except for doing reality checks.

      This night I couldn't sleep almost at all. I started dreaming early in the morning. Immediately I realized that this is a dream. The dream was very vivid but I forgot to do stabilization techniques (I always do it then I try MILD). I didn't expect to be lucid at all. I started doing one of my goals, did everything slowly. But the dream disappeared. I tried DEILD but I was too tired and fell asleep.
