What is the MILD Technique? Is it right for me?

The WILD (Wake Induced Lucid Dreams) technique is a method of lucid dream induction that requires sleep interruption.

WILD can only be used if you wake up from the REM cycle of sleep and then you go back to sleep immediately. The goal is to fall back asleep while still affected by the hormones that are released while we are in REM sleep.

This method of lucid dream induction is widely considered the most effective method of lucid dream induction, however, because it requires waking up and falling asleep immediately, many people find it to be the most difficult method.

Many people discover lucid dreaming naturally. Most of them discover lucid dreaming through unintentional use of the MILD technique.

WILD is for people who do not have a hard time falling asleep quickly

Why does this method work so well?

WILD is such an efficient method of lucid dream induction because it allows the dreamer to fall asleep while they are still conscious. This can sometimes allow for vivid hallucinations to begin before the dream cycle even starts up again.

Another reason for this method working so well is because we are falling asleep while our brains are still producing the hormones needed for dreaming, such as DMT.

Will This Method Work For Me?

In many various sleep studies, there have been people who have had varying degrees of success with the WILD technique of lucid dream induction. The most obvious conclusions would be that every person and every mind is different, therefore, this method and others seem to have different levels of efficiency for different people.

A pattern has emerged in one particular study, by Stephen Leberge and Donald J. DeGracia in 2000, that suggests WILD is easier for people who practice meditation. This study was published in Individual Differences in Conscious Experience.


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!

Goodnight

May your dreams reveal you to yourself
