What is the MILD Technique?

The MILD (Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams) technique is a method of lucid dream induction that requires sleep interruption.

It is likely that most readers are not familiar with the word mnemonic. If we refer to the Oxford Dictionary to see what "mnemonic" means, we see that it is a noun that means, "A device such as a pattern of letters, ideas, or associations that assists in remembering something." As an adjective, this word means, "Aiding or designed to aid the memory." and also "Of or relating to the power of memory."

As a noun and as an adjective, these descriptions all make perfect sense when describing this method of lucid dream induction.

MILD is for people who usually remember their dreams

Is This Method Right For Me? How Do I Use This Method?

The MILD technique is commonly used by people who have a good memory or for people who can remember their dreams vividly. This method seems to be often used by people who have found a measure of success using the WBTB technique and are seeking a stronger level of awareness and control over their lucid dreams.

The MILD technique is started by waking up, preferably during REM sleep, and becoming fully awake and aware, then to fall back asleep. The goal is to use the brief time while falling back asleep to try to remember the dream you just woke up from. You should imagine the dream you have just had, and attempt to recognize signs that you could have noticed in the dream that would have told you that you were dreaming. Try to remember every detail and look for anything that would have been out of place in the waking world.

This method is used with the hopes of increasing the likelihood of recognizing something to tell you that you are dreaming while you are still actively in your dream.
