Here in Lucidology 101 part 4 we’ll cover 5 new sleep commands that you can use to quickly trick the body into falling asleep so you can end insomnia and have frequent lucid dreams and O.B.E.s.

The Discovery Of The Roll Over Signal And Sleep Paralysis Connection

A while back I had been up all night working on something. Around noon I was very tired and decided to lay down for a few moments. As I lay there I began to feel a very uncomfortable urge to roll over. For no real reason I decided to ignore it and just lay there. To my extreme surprise I felt the paralysis wave roll over me and put me in full sleep paralysis.

The paralysis was completely unexpected. I had always thought it was something you had to be very deeply relaxed to achieve. Instead I was actually fairly tense and my mind was not at all in any kind of meditative state.

I’d accidentally found something that I had never seen in any books on lucid dreaming. The roll over signal itself was all you need to enter paralysis. I spent the next several months experimenting with different variations of what I’d done. I began looking for other ways to command the body into sleep and here’s what I found.

The Two Types Of Sleep Commands

It turns out sleep commands come in two types: sleep starters and sleep triggers.

1.) Sleep Starters

Sleep starters are what you use to get the body to start thinking that maybe it’s time to fall asleep. For instance, using stop drop and roll is a sleep starter because it makes your body ask for permission to fall asleep by artificially creating the roll signal.

2.) Sleep Triggers

Sleep triggers are how you then tell it “Yes: fall asleep right now”. SDR has an implicit sleep trigger: when you simply ignore the roll over signal the body interprets it a trigger to enter sleep paralysis.

5 New Sleep Commands

In this section we’ll cover sleep breathing and stopped eye micromovements, which are sleep starters. Then we’ll cover three sleep triggers. The first is pause breaths, the second is muscle twitching and third is eye movements.

3 Ways To Learn The Sleep Breathing Sleep Starter

Sleep breathing is simply mimicking your body’s breathing pattern when it’s asleep. If you act closely enough like you’re already asleep then your body thinks that it really is asleep, even if your mind is completely awake and not even slightly relaxed.

There are 3 basic ways to find out what your personal sleep breathing is like.

1.) Sleep Paralysis Perspective

First, when you enter waking sleep paralysis a lot of times your perspective shifts slightly away from the center of your head and in to your sinuses. It sounds like you’re breathing in a cavern and you’ll find your body automatically breathes with quite a lot more force than you do when you’re awake. The breathing is much deeper and longer. Pay attention to how this sounds in order to learn your sleep breathing pattern.

2.) Watch Waking Breathing

The second way to learn your sleep breathing pattern is to practice staying perfectly still when you wake up in the morning. You can continue to breathe the same way you did when asleep if you wake up gradually.

3.) Record Sleep Breathing

The third way, which is the best, is to record yourself sleeping. For $30 you can get a digital voice recorder that can record the entire night. You can then use free software like Audacity to find the parts of the recording that have your sleep breathing.

Here is a recording I made of myself. It sounds a little creepy, but that’s just how it sounds in a cheap recorder.

Once you have your recording you can listen to it right before you go to sleep in order to make sure you’re on the right breathing rhythm. If you don’t want to record yourself, you can download a free mp3 of my breathing pattern in the O.B.E Quickstart at

3 Sleep Breathing Gotchas

When you use sleep breathing there are a 3 gotchas to be aware of: These are the learning curve, blackout breathing, and the narcotic breathing effect.

1.) Sleep Breathing Learning Curve

The learning curve means that it takes practice and if you don’t have the rhythm right it can prolong the time it takes to fall asleep. It’s best to practice using sleep breathing for a couple nights before using it during an early morning O.B.E induction. However once you have the rhythm right, sleep breathing is probably the single most powerful of all the sleep commands.

A while back I laid down in the afternoon and just starting doing sleep breathing. I didn’t use any other methods at all and within 15 minutes I entered waking sleep paralysis. I could roll over and completely wreck the paralysis and then bring it back again with just 3 or 4 sleep breaths.

I usually don’t have that amount of control with sleep breathing, however it does show the potential power it has when you get the rhythm right.

2.) Blackout Breathing

The second gotcha is blackout breathing. A lot of times when you use sleep breathing for the first few minutes it seems like it’s not working and you feel like you should give up. But then all of a sudden you black out and you’re in a dream or you’re waking up the next morning. The blackout breathing effect is very real so if you use sleep breathing for WILDs make sure you have a timer because otherwise there’s a very good chance you’ll send yourself so far into sleep so quickly that you’ll never become lucid without a beep.

3.) Narcotic Breathing

The third gotcha is narcotic breathing. Sometimes instead of blacking out all at once you get a relaxing feeling. It feels like when you first wake up in the morning and the last thing you want to do is get up out of bed. You just want to go back to sleep. This is very useful in destroying insomnia. When you get the narcotic breathing effect it feels really good to lay there and breathe and you’ll have no desire to get up. Narcotic breathing is a signal that it’s working and you’ll be asleep very soon.

Second Sleep Starter: Stop Eye Micromovements

That wraps it up for sleep breathing. The second sleep starter is to stop eye micromovements.

During the day the eyes are searching for changes in motion. Because of this they make tiny micro movements all the time and at the end of they day they are still making these micro movements even though you may want to go to sleep.

If you close your eyes and try to keep them still you’ll find that after about 30 seconds they are still twitching very slightly. It’s not easy to totally relax the eyes. However if you can keep them at complete ease for several minutes the body will interpret that as a signal that the mind may have fallen asleep. In fact if you keep your eyes still your body will often fall asleep even if the rest of your muscles are fairly tense.

Roll Eyes To Relax Them

Before sleep, relax your eye muscles by rolling them around in wide circles in both directions several times and then letting them rest. After 3 or 4 nights of practicing this you’ll be able to keep your eyes totally still and you’ll fall asleep much faster.

This brings us to sleep triggers which are used to convert partial paralysis into full paralysis.

First Sleep Trigger: Pause Breaths

The first trigger is pause breaths. When you reach 90% paralysis, the reason the body doesn’t go to full paralysis is it has a bit of doubt about just how asleep the mind really is. This is because of muscle tension. The best solution is to relax more deeply but sometimes that’s not possible.

What you can do is exhale and pause for 2 or 3 seconds. Relax as much as you can and then begin breathing again like normal. By relaxing your breathing you reduce your overall tension just barely enough to send a signal to complete the paralysis. During those 2 or 3 seconds you’ll feel the paralysis deepening. Sometimes you may have to use 2 or 3 pause breaths about 15 seconds apart. When you do this, you’re not trying to alter your blood oxygen levels or anything like that. The purpose is to simply lower your overall muscle tension just long enough to paralyze completely.

Second Sleep Trigger: Muscle Twitching

The second sleep trigger is muscle twitching which was actually the first sleep trigger I ever found. I reached partial paralysis and on a whim decided to try twitching my right forearm to see what happened. To my surprise my entire arm paralyzed. I then twitched my right calf and my right leg paralyzed. I gradually paralyzed my entire body that way and completed the separation.

In other words muscle twitching only paralyses the surrounding muscles. I’ve actually found that I could paralyze just a single finger by twitching it when in partial paralysis.

How To Do Muscle Twitching

To do this twitch once every second or two when you’re in about 95% paralysis. The twitch is very gentle and only lasts the smallest fraction of a second. If you twitch your forearm the rest of your arm should not move at all. If you twitch too hard you’ll wreck the paralysis so keep it very light.

Probably the reason this works is when you dream you try to move your muscles but sleep paralysis prevents you from moving. However you do move your muscles just a bit when dreaming which causes muscle twitching. This means the body associates muscle twitching with deep sleep so one way to mimic deep sleep is to use muscle twitching.

Third Sleep Trigger: Up And Down Eye Micromovements

The third sleep trigger is up and down eye movements. With your eyes closed you simply move your eyes up and down as fast as you can for about 10 seconds. I’ve never been able to get it to work using left and right movements. However there is actually a type of hypnotic psychotherapy called “eye movement desensitization and reprocessing” or EMDR which uses side to side eye movements. You may try experimenting with side to side movement to complete partial paralysis but I find up and down is a safer bet.

The Order To Use Triggers

So which trigger do you use? The most reliable strategy is to start with a few pause breaths which is usually all it takes to get to 100% paralysis. If that doesn’t work use arm twitching. If that doesn’t work use up and down eye movements. If that doesn’t work just relax for a few more minutes before using the triggers again.

When To Use Sleep Triggers

I’ve experimented using sleep triggers to go directly from awake to asleep but that doesn’t seem to work. I find that for up and down eye movements to work you need to be in about 99% paralysis, muscle twitching works at about 95% paralysis and pause breaths work at about 90% paralysis. So it’s best to start out using sleep starters and then switch to triggers for the last step.

Up next in part 5 we’ll cover the exact relaxation routine you can use to fall asleep quickly to cure insomnia and enter waking sleep paralysis for frequent lucid dreams and O.B.E.s.

    Hi Nick. I just wanted to say thank you. I have been trying to find out who I am and what my role in this world is and about 1 year ago, for no reason at all, I started to ask myself what my dreams were and if they meant anything. I did an internet search on dreams and found lucidology 101. I admit that it took me, probably a good 3 months before I even had a remotely close experience to a successfull lucid dream, but I didnt give up. With meditation, binaural tones, self discovery, and the techniques that you have taught me in your lectures I have become very successful at not only lucid dreaming, but astral travel as well. This journey of self discovery that I have been on has led me to live a more positive and well balanced life. It all started with you my friend. I dont know if this comment will reach you, but I cant express the gratitude I feel enough!! Thank you Nick! I will try to find you on the astral plane and give you a big hug pal! Thanks for changing my life for nothing but positive things!! You truly have changed the world.

    How do you do the muscle twitching?

  5. Adam says:

    i do this every night after doing the sretches and relaxation stuff. I never get into full paralysis i always have control over my limbs, sometimes it feels like a heavy blanket is on them but thats it. Also i never have heavy feeling on my chest infact its usually the opposite my chest feels lighter, each breath i take feels like im going to float.

    I dont know what im doing wrong please help.

  6. sean says:

    hello, so i have been trying to put myself in sleep paralysis for some time now. I do the breathing tricks, eye movements, mussel twitching, and everything but i just cant get it. The only time i get in full paralysis is by accident every once in a wile in the mornings, but im never conscious enough to remember to control my dreams…do you have any tips?

  7. [...] the dream I like. So that's the Third Key to Lucid Dreaming: *BELIEF*. Use it, don't be used by it.Remember how I said *anything* is possible in a Lucid Dream? Well, it is, but only if you *believe* …you can, believe you can't; either way you're right!" And don't forget: "the impossible is achieved [...]

  8. Lotso says:

    I found these tips quite difficult to understand and when i finally realised what to do it made no difference. The only way i fall into it is just laying in bed with music in the background in darkness. You finally fall into a sleep bur remember it all

    I am not nobody, I AM THE DOCTOR

  24. Jacqueline says:

    I have been going through lucidoloy 101, and I find it overwhelming. I don’t understand the difference between Lucid Dreams and OBEs. There are details for methods and then it says those methods are too involved and there is an easier way. There are lots of details that end up not really being useful. My head is spinning, and I don’t really know where to begin with all this.

  25. Madeline R says:

    I have stumbled upon this in my search for techniques to promote the ability to fall asleep when needed. As someone who suffers from (undiagnosed) delayed sleep phase disorder, I’ve become desperate enough to try just about anything. Melatonin is becoming increasingly less effective for me and I tire of waiting for up to six hours for sleep to claim me even when I had initially lie down completely exhausted.
    That being said, I have just given my first attempt at using your techniques. Even though it was indeed my first attempt, I set the bar high for myself. My goal was to cease eye micromovements, remain still in a lying down position, resist the urge to roll over, and emulate the breathing patterns that occur when asleep. I am pleased to say that the heavy sensation that took over my feet and fingertips gives me hope that I can find a solution for my problem in your techniques if I give it time and continue to practice. Thank you very much.

  26. Stephany says:

    I can make myself fall asleep just by rolling my eyes downward no eye movement just like looking down with my eyes closed whether I’m tired or not this works in 5 minutes tops.

  27. Emmanuel Rangel says:

    This is exactly what i was looking for…
    Now i know how to get the full paralisys to get an OBE, thank’s for the tips!, now i know my mystakes, and i think now i’ll get an OBE more often, when i want to have it, thank’s! :)

  28. a person says:

    will try it

  29. Vokacan says:

    I have advice for you. Please visit site Mihaila Radugi. There you found all information about lucid dreams and OBE.

  30. Lazy turtle says:

    I found that these methods work but can mat seem to be able to get the eye micromovments to stop

  31. Anonymous says:

    what do you do after your “asleep”

  32. There is clearly a bundle to realize about this. I feel you made some nice points in features also.

  33. Anonymous says:

    Glad I stumbled on this, tried looking for ages trying to find someone that talked about this! I started getting sleep paralysis a little while when I got really stressed and lacked sleep during my exam time, still get it involuntarily since then. However, recently I was lying in bed doing some meditative practices and discovered I can slip into sleep paralysis at will, even with my eyes open at the time. I’m not very good at staying in it though, the pressure sensation in my ears and chest is sometimes too intense so I try get out of it. Anyone else still hear ringing in your ears once you get out of sleep paralysis? Do you just have to wait it out until you can move while still in sleep paralysis? How do you get to the lucid stage?

  34. Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Many thanks, However I am going through difficulties with your RSS. I don’t understand why I cannot subscribe to it. Is there anyone else getting the same RSS issues? Anyone that knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  35. Stephen says:

    I have a question. When i try to get into sleep paralysis i wait for like an hour and my body tingles and feels really heavy but i still can move everything. Should i just wait longer?
