      Yeah I've done a lot of DEILDing, at least I try to every time a lucid dream collapses so I'm actually fairly familiar with sleep paralysis
      I've even started practising Vipasanna/Zen meditation as well as 'ADA' (basically walking meditation/lucid living/plain mindfulness in my book).

      So I think I must be well on my way to reliable WILDs (I hope), again like you say it's difficult to avoid placing all your faith in techniques rather than confidence in yourself. I think I'll start posting my attempts day by day like you're doing, if nothing else it'll help me out

      I just read it, that was a pretty productive night I haven't managed to get lucid four times in a night yet. Interesting what you said about memory impressions, I seem to get those almost every time I fall asleep, I always seem to have some level of hypnagogic imagery. But it's good to know I'm not the only oneironaut out there who gets fairly frequent, but low awareness, lucid dreams; I've been trying really hard recently to raise my consciousness in the dream after getting lucid.

      I wonder what holds me back in WILDing, and I don't think it's technique or lack of knowledge, I don't seem to believe my ability I felt too tired to WBTB last night and fell almost immediately into unconscious sleep.
      I need to strengthen my intent for next time.

      I've been reading your recent DJ entries, I have to say they've been really inspirational. What's odd is that I have a friend that I introduced to lucid dreaming a few months back who took to WILDing pretty naturally, he had his first lucid dream as an accidental WILD! The interesting thing is that he's stumbled upon the same posture you're using, lying prone with his arms folded to make a rough sort of cushion. This is the same posture that Alan Worsely (the first lucid dreamer to send eye signals in a lab) uses the same position to WILD. Maybe there might be something in the posture?

      Also the thing about intent really rings true, I've been meaning to read the Art of Dreaming for a while, but after what you've said about it I think I definitely will have to; it's subtle how you have a successful WILD, no one can really tell you how to do it, there's no method, you just do, you exert your intent, and it happens.

      I'm looking forward to reading more of your attempts

      Awesome, I'll be waiting to hear how it goes! Yeah, one of the things that bugs me is that it's hard for me to feel that comfortable in the best position for it, and I haven't really been able to pull this kind of thing off in other positions very well. :T

      If it's any consolation I slept through my WBTB alarm >_<
      Well if you ever get frustrated remember you succeeded with it in the past! Perhaps you weren't mentally relaxed enough, WILDing isn't all about disconnecting from your body, maybe you could try some mental relaxation techniques? Or perhaps daydream until you enter the hypnagogic state.
      I look forward to hearing more (hopefully successful) attempts

    Basic Information

    About Choi
    Hey! My name is Christian and I am from Sweden. I was borned in South Korea. But I am from Sweden.

    I have been pracctising lucid dreaming for about 2 years now, and what I have learned is that it's not what technique you use that's important. The important thing is that you learn by your unsuccessful attempts, and that you never give up.

    You can't truley believe something unless you have own experience.
    So that's how you start out, by gaining some basic knowledge and then you start creating your own.

    I am a huge Matrix fan. So don't get surprised if I use a Matrix quote to explain something.

    "Unfortunately no one can be told what the matrix is, you have to see it for yourself"

    Attempt 21: Exploration Sleep

    by Choi on 03-26-2012 at 10:13 AM
    I thought Mind Awake/ Body Asleep meant sleep paralysis, but I misunderstood the whole thing.

    I thought I was struggling with reaching Focus 10 when I actually have reached it several times.

    I have experienced that I could no longer feel my body and I could actually imagine the sensation of feeling my body parts in another position that it really was in. For example last night I could feel my right hand scratching my left arm, but then I opened my physical eyes and saw that it was resting on the right side of my body.

    So I was in the state where I could imagine my body feeling different sensations. And here I could actually have done what most of the guided OBE meditations suggest, imagining my body float up and levitate or even just get out of bed.
    By the sensation that also Michael Raduga talked about. Now I finally understand what they meant.

    I am about to master the Discovery CD which taught me to achieve Focus 10.

    Then I am going to listen to Treshold which will teach me to enter Focus 12 which is is expanded awareness. The awareness is expanded beyond the physical body. In other words an OBE. (AP, lucid dream and so on).

    See you!

    Attempt 20: Advanced Focus 10

    by Choi on 03-24-2012 at 07:57 PM
    Attempt 20:

    Now I have done a lot of progress, I no longer have the problem of falling asleep unconsciously, because I have something to focus on. It feels like I kind of rush through the exercises, but when I have finished all of them, I have actually been laying there for about 50 minutes. So it's still better than what I used to do.

    I have not yet experienced a strong focus 10 which means that I am in the Mind Awake Body Asleep state.
    And I am still aware of my body when I reached the end of all the mind work. But I think the reason is that I rush it, so I am going to practice some more with the Monroe Institute CD, just to make sure that I do everything right, then I am going to do it on my own and see if I can enter Focus 10.

    I have experienced Focus 10 before, and that's the state my friend Fredrik enters before he chose to fall asleep.
    And he even feels the next stage, floating sensation, but he never choose to continue hmm...

    I'll see you guys soon!

    Attempt 19: Focus 3 And Focus 10

    by Choi on 03-22-2012 at 07:19 AM
    Attempt 19:

    I have just started listening to Bob Monroes guided Hemi Sync meditations and I am already seeing some results!
    It might just depend on the fact that I have practised relaxation and other WILD techniques for 3 years already.

    Bob Monroe talks about different Focuses that we enter with our consciousness, and he use these to describe what state we are in.

    The first Focus is attained by relaxing and by the use of resonant tuning.

    I start out with affirmations in order to make the exercise more effective.

    "I am more than my physical body. Because I am more than physical matter, I can perceive that which is greater than the physical world. Therefore, I deeply desire to Expand, to Experience;to Know, to Understand; to Control, to Use such greater energies and energy systems as may be beneficial and constructive to me and to those who follow me. Also, I deeply desire the help and cooperation, the assistance, the understanding of those individuals whose wisdom, development,and experience are equal to or greater than my own. I ask their guidance and protection from any influence or any source that might provide me with less than my stated desires."

    Then I use a breathing exercise called "Resonant Tuning"

    It is basically a breathing exercise to help you vitalize and charge your entire system. It promotes an accelerated gathering of your vibrational energy while reducing your internal dialogue.

    Focus 3: When the body starts to get relaxed and when the brain and mind are more coherent, synchronized and balanced.
    This state is easily achieved by just entrain yourself by listening to the Hemi Sync.

    The first Focus was easy, I just listened to the first exercise and felt the Hemi Sync making me more relaxed and my mind clear. But the next Focus I expected to be much harder to attain since I have been trying to do this ever since I started with lucid dreaming!

    Focus 10: Mind Awake / Body Asleep State

    When I have attained Focus 3 I start to gradually relax every part of my body, by listening to Monroes voice and last day when I tried this I fell asleep... So I did one more attempt before I went to bed and this time I almost remained awake.
    I felt my body vibrating heavily and getting heavy and I were on the treshold of sleep. I felt my body completely shut down.
    But then my mind fell asleep again unconsciously.

    But I noticed my body fall asleep! And this attempt was 30 minutes and was done before normal sleep.

    These exercises really seems promising, so I will keep doing them.

    Next Focus happens when I am out of body! But there is more exercises I have to complete before I am ready to go there.

    See you!

    The Real Matrix

    by Choi on 03-21-2012 at 05:20 PM
    Since I started listening to Thomas Campbell I have learned many valuable things.

    I realise now that my brain is full of f*ck. But I have to warn you, that the following text will change your view of your reality.

    Thomas Campbell opened my eyes to what the world really is. To see the real Matrix.

    All the great physicist were going in the same direction, but they hit a wall and couldn't figure out what the final solution would be.

    It all started with the double slit experiment.

    You can either read my description which I will write now or you can watch this video: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu57B1v0SzI[/url]

    The result of this experiment questions the reality's existence. And this was the beginning of quantum physics.
    The experiment is really simple. It consists of one laser | |----------------------
    and two small slits which is two small stripes that the light can travel though | || || |
    and we have one observation screen |____|.
    In order for this experiment to work we have to be able to control the laser so it shots a light particle even called photons, through the slits one at the time.

    Let's start with just one slit.

    By doing this a pattern will show up that looks like a single stripe | formed by each dots that was hit by the photons.

    Now let's try with two slits. It's expected to be formed just like two stripes or the same shape as the slits.

    But the pattern that is shown makes no sense at all...

    | | | | | | | | | <--- Wave pattern!

    This is called an interference pattern. Since the photons was shot on at the time, they can not have interfered with each other. And there is only one conclusion:

    The fired photon stops being a particle and becomes a way of potentials and go through both slits and interferes with itself. But when we try to calculate how this is possible. It's impossible, because it goes through both slits and at the same time it goes through neither and it also goes through just one and just the other.

    We want to know how this is possible right? Ok let's put a measuring device to see which slit it actually goes through.
    Now the logical pattern of two stripes | | is shown on the board.

    which means that the photon went back to behave like a little marble only when we OBSERVED it.
    How can our awareness affect how light behaves? This is called the measurement problem.

    Thomas Campbell the author of the book "My Big TOE "Theory of Everything"" explains how.

    And other physicists have come to the same conclusion, but got stuck to the question "How?".

    Edward Fredkin - "Reality is a computed simulation our reality is digital, time is and space is. Our reality
    is just information."

    Albert Einstein - "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one"

    Letter from Einstein to David Bohm:

    "One has to find a possibility to avoid the continuum (together with space and time) altogether. But I have not the slightest idea what elementary concepts could be used in such a theory."

    Einstein struggled with finding an answer, but digital physics did not existed during that time.

    Thomas Campbell solved this mystery, by using the digital physics that already had been discovered.

    The answer is that we are inside a matrix, a matrix created by our minds.

    The physics is the rules of how this world works and that's what makes it consistent.

    The best explanation is Morpheus:"If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain."

    And that's exactly what happens when we dream as well! So why is the reality more real than the dream?

    The point is that our consciousness is best modeled as a digital information system.

    This might sound like a big leap of faith, but remember that it's not a big leap from what some of the brightest physicists concluded.

    I just had to share this information with you, and if you want to learn more you can either watch some of Thomas Campbells seminars or read his book: [url]http://books.google.se/books?id=YxMf-lyn0qoC&printsec=frontcover&hl=sv&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false[/url]

    The Gateway Experience by the Monroe Institute

    By reading his books and watching his seminars I got interested in the Monroe Institute.
    And now I am listening to the Hemi Sync guided lesson by Bob Monroe himself.

    In order to learn to get out of body! In other words, be aware of the consciousness itself.

    Attempt 18: Occupy The Mind

    by Choi on 03-18-2012 at 08:22 PM
    Last night I fell asleep unconscious fairly fast. But when I woke up in the morning again I started meditating immediately.
    And I ended up dreaming unaware, but I remembered when I woke up that it was only withing seconds after starting meditating. I did one more attempt and after each mantra I counted a number. I reached the number 100 which means that I lay there for approximately 10 minutes before I gave up. I am always obsessed by timing my attempts. But it only makes me bored and makes me stressed. So I am going to stop doing that.

    I have read about 60 pages of Thomas Campbell's "My Big TOE" and I just read about the time he learned to meditate.

    He went to a Transcendental Meditation lesson for 20 $ and was told to repeat a "secret" mantra to occupy the mind.
    He was skeptical but he wanted it to reduce stress, so he tried it out. In his first attempt he was supposed to sit for 20 minutes, but when the teacher yelled that the time was up, he had actually been sitting there for 40 minutes.
    He practiced regularly with two 20 minute attempts per day, and he sometimes found himself being thoughtless in a dark void of nothingness and he was jolt awake. When he tried to move he had trouble moving.

    Now I am going to read about his first meeting with Bob Monroe. (He talks about shared non-physical experience! Not so weird since the non-physical world is as real as this one. But I have to experience it myself to believe it though.)

    So now I am going to start my journey and start meditating regularly as well.

    I will write here if I experience something special, but not necessarily each day.

    Take care and good luck to you!

    I'll be back :D
