How To Avoid These Two MAJOR Lucid Dreaming Mistakes!!

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.

    This is the part I do not fully understand.
    I set a snooz on my cel phone. I went into an OBE but when it rings, here I go back to my bed and then I would start all over again for the next 10 min…

    How would the Lucidology timer different since it is going to pull me back as well?

    The timer is there to give you a signal to START the OBE. If you’re already in an OBE when the timer beeps then you don’t need the timer. Use a longer interval so that it beeps after your 1st OBE is already done.

    Alrright lucidology I need some help. I’ve had only a couple lucid dreams in my life, and I wish I could get there many times with ease.
    I’ve went through 101 and I’ve learned some very interesting information.
    I believe I can make it into sleep paralysis, at least to my head, and I think I have felt some vibrations as well. Like the feeling of chills, when you hear your favorite song, where it zings up your spine. I’ve had these all over my body, and can easily get to tis point…but I feel it is to the extent of where ive reached. I find myself needing to swallow. Or simply just laying in the paralysis waiting for a dream.

    Last night I thought I was in an OBE for a short time because, I was laying in a paralysis, with the vibrations laying in darkness. And I like subconsciously slowly opened my eyes. And it happened so slow I thought I was looking through my eyelids for a minute. Tbh, my heart rate sped up, but I took deep breaths and then sat up just to find out I was being retarded.

    I run into the problem of having to try and keep my eyes closed.
    Also I run into the problem of swallowing.
    And when I do fall asleep, it’s just a regular old dream??
    Wha is the point of meditating into sleep paralysis when in the end I still need to master reality checks into a habit?

    Please reply, thanks.

    Okay so I’ve been trying to hav my first lucid dream for aaaages now but I just can’t do it. Tonight I laid there for an hour and a half and still nothing, my muscles were slightly stiff but no paralysis!! It was pretty subconscious, I mean it really didn’t feel like an hour and a half. I don’t know what to do now! I try when I’m really tired but I just fall asleep!
    Any suggestions? :(

    Alright, I need some tips… I tried waking up 5 hours after going to bed to catch myself during a REM cycle, but when I woke up, I found that it wasn’t interrupting a dream (meaning that I missed the desired REM interruption) then when I tried to go back to sleep with WILD, my roll signal was to swallow, and that urge got so strong that no matter how hard I resisted, it happened involuntarily.
    When I do it when I first go to bed at night, I usually make it past the roll signal. I feel the weird vibrations, hear miscellaneous white noise, but I know I’m not fully in sleep paralysis because I don’t feel the lead blanket feeling, and even if I lay there for a good 5 minutes, it still feels like that /onset/ of sleep paralysis with the vibrations, and when I try to move my dream body into the dream, I find that I’m still connected to my physical body. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong.

    Depressing. You guys are having trouble because your trying something new you should have mastered as a child

    I know I cannot actually plan for a lucid dream, and I only know when I can have one after I’m asleep. I know for a fact that I have to be super tired and relaxed, and I can only do it if I’m slightly propped up with pillows , on my back, and hands to my side. I’ve gotten to where I can have these experiences almost every night, but sometimes they only last for a tiny bit.
