What is the WBTB Technique?

The WBTB (Wake Back To Bed) technique is a method of lucid dream induction that requires sleep interruption.

This method is best used by people who keep a fairly regular sleep schedule, or at least during the work week.

WBTB is probably the most common lucid dream induction method used by beginners.

How do I use this method?

WBTB is used by waking up, preferably during REM sleep, at least an hour before your alarm clock would normally be going off. The goal is to break up your sleep cycle in the morning with about 20 to 90 minutes of being awake. This time is best used imagining the lucid dream you would like to have, and to practicing recognizing signs you are dreaming, then simply going back to sleep until it is time to wake up for the day.

While you are falling back asleep, it might help to imagine being lucid in the last dream that you can remember. This is very common advice from lucid dreamers.

Will this method work for me?

As with every lucid dream induction method, there have been people who have had varying degrees of success with the WBTB technique. Everyone is different. This method and others seem to have different levels of efficiency for different people.

If you are interested in lucid dreaming, feel free to research and try these methods to find which is most efficient for you. You will be amazed at what you can do when you take control of your dreams!


May your dreams be pleasant and fulfilling
