      First Successful WILD ever. Stopped trying for about 4 months or so...

      Our power's been out from Irene for the past 2.5 days, right following a minor (but surprising and thus alarming earthquake) here in Baltimore. Since I hadn't anything to do, being out of power, I went to bed early 2 nights in a row. Sitting in bed at 11pm last night I said to myself, half-heartedly, "I'm going to Lucid Dream."
      Well I woke up at 4:45 because my neighbors came outside and started talking. The 40-something woman was standing outside smoking a cig with her 16 year old son. Their back door is a few feet from my bedroom window so the smell of smoke and the voices woke me up. I clambered about a bit, closed the window, mumbled some profanities and emptied my bladder in the dark.
      Climbing back into bed my head hit the pillow and immediately I began to feel the now-familiar buzz of SP slipping in -- familiar because a handful of months ago I had been religiously trying to WILD, or LD at all for that matter. Well my eyes were closed and a slight, muted swirl of olive and bruise-colored light began to dimly swirl about my eyelids. And suddenly my eyes were open again, in the dark. It was foggy but I looked about and was like "yeah, its my room... wish I could sleep." Closed my eyes again, and again the room kind of just was there again, like I had opened my eyes. Still in First Person POV. And then I realized, I don't know, something triggered subconsciously. I looked around. "Waitaminute. There's a cabinet in my room. I don't have a cabinet in my room. I'm dreaming. I'm lucid dreaming." I didn't get panicked or overly excited, I was just like, 'hey, wow. cool man.' Then I guess I got up and opened the door, wound up in another place -- another room -- and the adventures began. I forgot to 'stabilize' so I didn't have huge control but I definitely knew I was dreaming, that I was me, and didn't have trouble walking around. I did experience textures and temperatures even though I didn't taste or hear or smell- I didn't remember to do so.

      But that was a cool experience. I kept coming out of the dream back to the buzz of SP or, what seemed like an in-between-dream-state but I dived down again about 4 separate times. It was pretty decent.

      Unfortunately I've let my dream recall slip so although I remember a general plot which I recanted to myself as I began to awake, and I remember images and glimpses of the dreams (which intertwined with the same characters), I don't quite fully remember the dreams themselves. I do remember laughing to myself with pleasure how funny it was that the dreams of a filmmaker involved elaborate camera pans as if the camera were attached to a crane or a jib.

      This is awesome, congratulations. It's funny how you didn't succeed at WILDing until long after you stopped trying so hard.

      Yea, nice post, there is actually something too what somniloquist said, my first WILD happened when I stopped trying soo hard and it was a surprise. My most recent WILD was also very unexpected but my most vivid and longest to date.

      Always, no sometimes think it's me,
      But you know I know when it's a dream
      I think I know I mean a yes
      But it's all wrong
      That is I think I disagree
