A question I got which touches on two common mistakes:
You know when you say I am supposed to stay awake and convince my body to go to sleep. First of all once I roll the whole lead blanket feeling vanishes. And then I will try to keep my mind awake and resist the movement urges but my body just won’t switch off, all I get is headaches.
A lot of people wonder, why does “stop, drop and roll” involve moving your arms and rolling over if the whole trick to getting into waking sleep paralysis is to stay perfectly still?
SDR is really about getting rid of the last bits of muscle tension. If you can relax without SDR then you would be better off just staying still from the start and not moving ever.
So if the final roll stage messes it up then don’t roll. However if you find that you end up laying there and get relax past that last stage that makes your body think it’s OK to fall asleep, then you should use SDR to get rid of the tension.
The second mistake is a huge one that I have to repeat a lot.
Don’t try to keep your mind awake!!!
*****Just fall completely asleep and let the timer make you become lucid.*****
Let me repeat that again.
When you’re using the Lucidology 101 methods, do NOT try to stay awake when you’re relaxing into a wake-induced lucid dream!!
It sounds strange but the easiest way to have a WILD is to fall totally asleep.
This is because you then let the *timer* beep wake you up for a moment and then you’re awake enough to watch your body fall right back to sleep.
That’s how you get deep enough in your subconscious without using visualizations. Because just a few moments ago you were asleep, when the timer beeps and you wake up you’re still mainly focused in your subconscious and can slip right into an OBE or lucid dream.
So click here to download the lucid dream timer and mp3s and use that to become lucid and have OBEs without needing to use any mental trickery.
If you need more details see Lucidology 101, in particular part 7 on The Timer Method: The Complete Method For Having Lots Of O.B.E.s & Lucid Dreams By Tricking Your Body Into Falling Asleep
