      Whenever im trying a WILD i get the heavy feeling followed by HH(HI). The HH is just the black background and the grey swirls. Then i feel my body float up and spin. I passively wait for the imagery, but it never shows up. After about a minute or so of levitating i feel myself enter back into my body. Should i open my eyes when i levitate or continue to wait for the images?

      I am a bit confused here with WILD. So I lay in bed while keeping my mind awake, and when I start to feel vibrating and see HI, then I get out of bed and will be in my dream body, or wait for the HI to become a dream scene?

      I tried doing WILD last night with the WBTB. I set my alarm for 3:10 am and made sure my alarm was on. Then I woke up at 7am, when I get up for the day, and noticed the alarm had been silenced, and I have no recollection of ever pushing the button. I guess I must put the alarm in a place where I will have to get up more or i’ll still be asleep and just push the button to shut it up.

      Had a short wild experience this morning but the sensation to the entrance was quite nothing like it
      i ran into a sleep paralysis (i honestly have no idea how i always get into this part..)
      i stayed calm as usual but then i started to hear this woman talking with music in the background as if i were listening to a radio or something. that was like the coolest exp yet! then my body started swaying left and right..then up and down. so now im like ok wat the heck is going on

      Dude, this stuff varies so much for everyone. I spent months trying every technique imaginable. I tried galantamine. I tried counting, meditation, a dozen different anchors. Then finally one day WILD just happened. Then I found myself WILDing without any effort, and now I just know whether the conditions are right to have one at bedtime. My best success happens when I first go to bed, when hypnogogia happens to be really cracking and I always start in an NREM darkness and then cycle through a number of false awakenings until I'm in REM.

      In my experience WILD took a ton of work, but when you stumble across the experience, your brain gets trained with a new skill and it's not a big strenuous ordeal anymore. All you can do is dedicate yourself to trying all the different techniques and maybe eventually you'll be lucky. It's impossible to describe the transition from waking to dreaming. "Rolling out of your body" wasn't helpful to me. It's a very subtle thing that has to almost accidentally happen the first time, and then you know what you're really looking for, in my experience anyway.

      True, WILDing process is very individual. It differes even for same person on different tries.

      But once you have your first one, you will get a feel for it and next one will be easier because now you know you can do it. The next attempt will most likely be different, but there will be some aspects that remain the same. Like the "dream feel". All it takes is experimenting.

      Good luck!

      Great article Gab!!

      I haven't had WILD as of yet but In my meditations I experince most of the common sensations.

      A little tip, if you feel that the sensation is too intense for you, adjust your breathing to the sensation and it will soon ease!

      Or in most cases another sensation will arise.

      Thanks!

      I'm not experienced with meditation, so I don't know if sensations are desired. But when you are WILDing, sensations could be taken as a mile marker to let you know you are getting close to a dream. Intense sensations normally last only few seconds and you can either enter a LD while they are happening, or soon after.

      I tried this for the first time today after having experience with multiple false awakenings! I wasnt expecting it but I did it first time! I followed all of the steps in your guide and couldn't believe it when I felt the familiar body tingling that I feel when I'm not trying to do it!!

      Reminding yourself that the visual and auditory hallucinations are a mile marker, rather than a stepping stone, really works wonders in keeping calm. I'm the kind of person who's scared of her own bedroom at night so you can imagine how terrifying even the slightest sound is for me.

      For my last few attempts, I've had trouble keeping my eyes closed just as the hypnagogic imagery begins. Anyone else have the same problem or know how to handle it?

      Same! I found my eyes twitching and it took a lot of effort to keep them closed. Didn't get to LD and opened them in the end when my alarm went off.

      whenever i try to lucid dream, i go into the lucid dream but when i do an RC, i just get kicked back out. i first thought i was too excited but i was not excited at all. but the weird thing is, whenever i wake back up from being lucid and go back to sleep, i always go into a dream where i am not lucid.

      does anyone know how to fix this problem?

      So everytime you get lucid you do a reality check and that wakes you up? Or sometimes you do not RC and you are able to continue on with your lucid dream? Is this all WILDs or DILDs?

      I keep trying to do a WILD but I end up getting to deep sleep and losing control and not even dreaming.

      You may be too sleepy to stay awake until the right time. Or, you may not be wilding after at least 5 hrs of sleep. Tell us more.

      My hypnogogia is always really strong as soon as I close my eyes. It makes it hard for me to know if Im getting any closer to a LD. Any tips?
