      I seriously don't get why the heck this happened...

      I went to bed expecting to WILD in the middle of the night, and so I went to sleep normally.

      I had a dream that I was in my bed, the one that I fell asleep in. There was this radio on a black TV stand right beside my bed, which was playing some sort of low-key, relaxing music. I got into a comfortable SP position, and soon I got huge, but not uncomfortable, vibrations, and a wishy-washy feeling that I was going back and forth in my bed. Since this wasn't a lucid dream, I thought it was real SP. 'Wow, this is cool,' I thought. xD Then I began to see HI and then I was in another dream.

      This is where the wierd part happened. I was in the dream and immediately thought, 'omg, I WILDed, and now I'm dreaming!' I carried out and completed one of my dream goals. But I was lucid, even though it wasn't a real WILD, and was only induced by a DREAM that I WILDed. Had a similiar experience before?

      So, lemme get this straight? You were in a dream, and you tried to have SP, then you thought you were in a "WILD", and before when you fell asleep in your dream, at the time you thought it was real?
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.

      Yeah. I induced WILD in a non-lucid dream, and then had a lucid dream after that. Even though it was only a dream.

      My question is, why would I have an LD if the WILD wasn't real? You know?

      I think that it still is basically the same, even though in the first dream you didn't know that you were dreaming, in the next one you did, I've had this happen before. You don't need to know that one dream was a dream to know in the next dream that it's a dream, does this make sense? This can be similar from if this happened in real life, so it works out that way, because you "think" it will. You realize that you "fell asleep" and it's a dream.

      Not the greatest wording in the world, but does this make sense?

      I think I've done this before too. I fell asleep in the dream, and had a "WILD", so I don't think that you are the only one.

      You thought you were awake, WILDing. Thus you expected to end up in a dream, and you did. The way you became lucid was the same, you just happened to be dreaming beforehand. Becoming lucid via WILD doesn't hinge on passing directly from a waking to dreaming state, but from expecting yourself to be in a dream, and then suddenly finding yourself in one.

      The same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago.

      Okay, I understand. So basically, if I'm WILDing in a dream, my expectations will still cause an LD. That's interesting.

      I oftentimes experienced dreams within dreams! One time I even went 2 dreams deeper, obviously not lucid though.

      But perhaps even more interesting is if we can exploit this. If one were to WILD within a DILD would one get the traits of a WILD?

      Yes, this happened to me just the other day. I had a WILD inside a non lucid dream and became lucid. I experienced SP inside a dream too. I woke up out of the WILD to a false awakening where I became non lucid. Inside the FA I was writing down the dream in my DJ, when I woke up IRL. I was disappointed that I had to rewrite my DI-WILD.
