      Sleeping with a fan on??

      Hey guys! Hope all are well...
      I hate to ask a relatively stupid question, but is complete silence best recommended for successful WILDing? I have this problem where I CAN NOT get to bed without having some sort of oscillating fan on, but have read where earplugs are best used for WILDing. Any feedback?

      The fan should be fine if it is your habit to turn it on before sleep. I am the same way. There is no way to sleep until I turn my fan on. Even if it is freezing.

      It's fine. I have an air filter that makes noise and I can WILD just fine. I do notice it gets quite a bit louder when I am hallucinating though.

      The question should be changed to "Why we all love fans"

      Whatever helps you relax. As long as the fan doesn't startle you and ruin your concentration, you will be fine.

      Of course, you could always use it as a type of suggestion or anchor. For example, turn it off when you want to WILD, and turn it back on when you want to sleep normally. This could help you set up a way of signaling your brain to when you are serious about doing a WILD. For example, some people will move to the couch to do their WILD, or to another bedroom. It helps to have a little ritual to tell yourself you are serious. Your WILDing pajamas, or your WILDing pillow.

      Careful, you might awaken with a cold.

      Thanks everyone! I appreciate it - been at this for the last two months, seem to be getting closer but just no dice yet. Hopefully will have some success in the summer.

      And I am glad to see so many fan supporters. haha
