      WILD-ing immediately after waking without moving

      I started trying to LD again, after about a year away from it, about a month ago with the intention to DILD.
      I have not had any LD's via dild but in just the last 7 days i have had 3 spontaneous WILDs, in a way i haven't read about (please link me to this tech if it's already been written about, which it very likely has).

      Here's how they happened.
      I got my recall good enough so that i don't have to try and remember my dreams anymore, they're just with me in full detail as soon as i awake, and my morning dream recall time is now more like morning dream reflection because i don't have to recall much at all.

      I was in a dream, not lucid, and began to wake up. I momentarily had the strange experience of being able to feel my bed and my physical body whilst still dreaming. Then the dream was gone, and i was lying in bed, still, with my eyes closed. I was awake but still felt sleepy and dreamy, so i decide to try and go back into a dream. I tell myself the dream will be lucid.

      I try to imagine and visualise my little brother, standing in front of a brick wall, repeating the words "this is a dream." i cannot see him, but after only a few moments of imagining this the red wall appears in my vision. Out of nowhere my phone appears in front of my face, and i imagine typing my LD goals down onto my phone. I can still feel my bed and the dream imagery isn't stable at all. In fact, the colour of my phone is inconsistent, flickering between its usual yellow backround to a white nothing. When my attention is on my physical body i begin to loose the dream, and when i focus on the instability of the dream the more instable it becomes. So, instead, I focus intently on the writing and begin to notice spelling mistakes. I move my dream fingers (which i notice i can do, and i notice they actually feel like my real fingers) to tap on and fix the mistakes. I've become so engrossed in the writing that i forgot i was falling asleep, but then i notice that the colour of my phone has stabilised to yellow which in turn leads me to realise that i can't feel my physical body anymore, only my dream body. I look away from my phone, fully lucid, and explore my environment and continue with my dream.

      The next time it happened was a few days later. I again felt myself waking up from a dream, and i again was lying in bed with my eyes closed. Instead of opening my eyes or adjusting my body i stay still, looking into the darkness of my eyelids, and try to go back into a dream. I visualise writing again, since it worked well last time, and very quickly i can actually see the writing in my vision, cursive writing on paper this time. The dream stabilises fast and i look up from the piece of paper to see that i'm standing in the same dream i had previously awoken from, but now i'm lucid. I look at the paper and it says that "Things have gotten bad since i've been gone" and indeed i am in a very creepy ominous house and i'm sure there's a monster there. Wanting to be somewhere nice, I look at the front door and tell myself "outside that door is a beach and sunlight." Unfortunately there is a window in the front door and i can see it's dark outside before i open it, and with that doubt there was no sunlight, but there was a beach. In my excitement about having made a beach appear i awake.

      I re enter the dream immediately, wanting to keep LDing, using the same method. It takes a little longer this time since my body really wants to be awake now, but i eventually can see the same piece of paper and writing in my vision. I tell myself, "I am on the beach, in the sun." And before i look up from the paper i can see that it is lit with sunlight, and i can feel the sunlight on my face, so i am sure that there is sun before i look up. And sure enough when i do, i am standing on the beach in the sun. I am pretty ecstatic about this accomplishment and feel awesome just standing on the beach in the sun.

      This morning i tried to do it again after awaking with an alarm, but it didn't work even though i was tired. I think the alarm ruins it for me, because moving myself and opening my eyes to turn off the alarm really pulls me out of sleeptime- but maybe that's because i'm an insomniac.

      Has anyone done something similar? I didnt experience any hypnogogia or other common WILD experiences.

      Hey there gratulations for your experiences!
      I would say the "technique" would be called DEILD- Dream Exit induced Lucid Dream. You wake up from a dream, dont move and visualize previous dream with intention to reenter it lucid and seconds later you are back in same dream or the place you visualize and are lucid.
      Normally one would say you shouldnt move at all so yea an alarm you have to turn off manually is not working. its about to be between the worlds. some people manage to turn on the side and still go for a deild. i know a friend of mine she can keep the dreamy feeling while she go to the bathroom and back to bed and reenter her previous dream but this is an exception i think but should show you that it is possible in general and its about the feeling you have immediately after waking.
