      Hi ezzolucid. I've been reading the free vesion of Michael Reduga book. Why do you recommend the paid version as opposed to the free one? How much difference is there and why would it be better? I have had only limited success with LD's without using Galantamine. Being 66 years old means I may not have the easiest time with LD'ing because of chemical changes in the brain. The other night I woke up and automatically started to try to separate from my physical body. Without having to go through the cycles, I found myself in a nice but short LD where I did my task of looking in a mirror. Because of that experience, I've decided to persue the book's approach. I was initially not interested because I was not used to the terminology he uses. The approach is very similar to other DEILD approaches I've read about, but seems more thorough. In any case, any information you can give me or suggestions regarding his techniques would be appreciated.

    Combo: DEILD --> FILD

    1) im either in a false awakening or
    2) Ive just woke up from a dream and am 'ripe' for a deild

    Now as im unsure what 'state' i am in (1 or 2), i am reluctant to do a nose plug reality check because if im number 2 (just woken up and ripe for a dield) then the physical nose plug move would effectively reduce my chances of a dield as ive now moved my physical body

    If on the other hand im in a false awakening then doing a deild by trying to reenter a dream would be the wrong thing to do because i should simply 'roll out' and have a fun 'obe'

    You quote the following ... "Usually my waking in the night goes as follows, wake, check for DEILD feeling, write down dreams, back to sleep, check for WILD feeling"

    Can you expand on your quote of 'Deild feeling / wild feeling' as i feel that if i knew what state i was in then i could execute the best technique during that awakening and it seems that you can tell by a 'deild feeling'

    Normally i just lay there, eyes closed, not moving knowing that im in a micro awakening and i just dont know what to do. I dont know whether i should just hope im in a false awakeing and 'roll out' of my body or simply attemp to deild instead as there no clear indicator for me to act on

    I hope i made sense

    Thank you
    Well, I would recommend a "motionless RC" something like levitating or something to see if you are waking or asleep. Remember that RCs are just doing things that you can't do in waking, doesn't have to be a preset LD. DEILD / WILD Feeling is a feeling in between awake asleep that is like a balance of awareness that is quite difficult to get to unless you have the proper amount of sleepiness, wakingness, and awareness. What I always recommend is to try for DEILD, but not at the cost of a WBTB, try for WILD, but not at the cost of sleep.

    When waking, even for a micro awakening, you want to wake yourself up a little in order to reset your intent. Here are some rules to follow generally.
    RC upon every waking or change of surroundings. (think you woke up? RC, think you can DEILD back, RC first)
    Don't take more than a minute trying to DEILD (honestly 30 seconds should be the max).
    Don't take a WBTB less than a minute or two or it won't be effective at all (in fact it might be counter productive)
    Don't spend more than 5 minutes trying to WILD. (Unless you have lots of experience, maintaining the right awareness is going to be hard here)
    Always lean towards sleep as opposed to a WILD during the night.

    Now I break the bottom four rules after I have been sleeping for about 7 hours, I try and DEILD for about 2 minutes, I get up for a long WBTB and try and WILD for about 10 minutes. Now if I miss the WILD and can't get to sleep because I stay too far on the side of awake, I only miss like 30 minutes as opposed to missing all of my sleep at night and screwing my night and the next night. Make sense?
