- The easiest way to attempt this technique is if you take an afternoon nap or you have only slept for 3-7 hours.
- Try to meditate into a calm but focused state. You can try counting breaths, imaging ascending/descending stairs, dropping through the solar system, being in a quiet soundproof area, etc.
- Listening to Theta binaural beats for an amount time will easily put you into a REM sleep.
Please note that attempting WILD may cause you to suffer from sleep paralysis, rapid vibrations and noises that don't really exist, floating and other out-of-body experiences, and hypnagogic hallucinations/images. There is no reason to be afraid, as Sleep Paralysis happens every night - you just sleep through it. Hypnagogia is just your mind being overactive. Remember that with lucid dreaming you are aware and can always wake yourself up if you feel overwhelmed.
