      oh right :/ guess ive got tinnitus ah well its not intrusive, doesnt matter but it fasiled again last night my alarm failed to wake me for a wbtb and to get up for college lol. The lasdt time i almost had a wild i just smoked a spliff and somehow it helped my mind just click and know what to do sort of thing, but ive tried that again and its not worked, i think it might have just been that strain that was good for wild!

      It's okay to swallow, really.
      LOL. Whenever I'm trying to fall asleep without losing consciousness, I seem to lose the ability to move my throat. It's like, if I swallow, I'm scared it'll jolt me awake because it's so loud. lolol. So I get so nervous that swallowing will wake me up that the nervousness wakes me up o.e lol good tip.

      I read you're tutorial and it's quite simular to what I've been doing lately!
      My consisting problem is that whenever I reach the random thoughts and images stage I realise it and jolt awake.

      What can I do to recognize it and get along with it without being right awake?

      Thanks for all of the tips. I have a question about my experience with WILDing...
      When I WILD, after some time, I feel a sort of numbness over my whole body, except for my head. Is this a good sign? Am I close? I have tried multiple times, and get the same results. I cannot get past this stage. Also, every once in a while I will get a pretty loud ringing in my ears.
      I think my problem is that I can't really fall asleep. I have trouble doing that, because when I WILD, I find it much harder to fall asleep than if I am normally trying to fall asleep. I have tried many counting, and many other mental techniques, but nothing has seemed to work. Any tips? Does it sound like I am on the right track?

      This is a great post
      I tried my wild for the first time last night, and failed because i think i got confused/wasn't expecting a new sensation
      Woke up round 4:30
      Sat up
      lied on back and started counting
      turned over to my belly
      At about 300 in my counting i could see clouds behind my eyelids,
      i stopped counting and tried to remain awake observing sensations
      I started hearing sounds like my sister playing her chimes upstairs (my whole family are musicians including me) at first i thought my sister was rude for playing at 4 in the morning then i realized the music wasn't real and it was probably hypnagogia
      The sounds were fleeting, like i'd have to listen for them
      then i heard saxophone playing upstairs, was too good to be my brother haha
      started having little dreamlets like kind of imagery, I cant remember it now, but I felt like my hands were moving
      dont know how long i stayed like that
      saw some flashes heard a loud tsing tsing electric buzzing and felt it too. the buzzing was very distracting and it was significantly harder to breath. my breathing was good, it was just shallow. my pulse was up too
      it freaked me out and i woke up. (It didnt really scare me, i just wasn't expecting such a intense feeling of like vibration or something)
      couldn't move very well so i held my breath and wiggled my fingers until I could move well.
      and it was 5:05

      I feel like i was really close to a WBTB / WILD dream

      I'm going to try again tomorrow night
      (Also going to sleep on my back this time so maybe if the buzzing electric noises and tingling happens ill feel more comfortable)

      OMG THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE. I always WILD'ed by accident and whenever I purposely try one I struggle. I think I might actually try a WILD tonight!
