  • Mnemonic induction of lucid dreams (MILD)
    The MILD technique is a common technique developed by Dr. Stephen LaBerge, used to induce a lucid dream at will by setting an intention, while falling asleep, to remember to recognize that one is dreaming, or to remember to look for dream signs when one is in a dream.

    Wake-back-to-bed (WBTB)
    The wake-back-to-bed technique is often the easiest way to encourage a lucid dream. The method involves going to sleep tired and waking up five hours later. Then, focusing all thoughts on lucid dreaming, staying awake for an hour and going back to sleep while practicing the MILD method. A 60% success rate has been shown in research using this technique. This is because the REM cycles get longer as the night goes on, and this technique takes advantage of the best REM cycle of the night. Because this REM cycle is longer and deeper, gaining lucidity during this time may result in a lengthier lucid dream.

  • The best way, as in my favorite, is the Wake Induced Lucid Dream (WILD) method. It’s where you enter your dream without losing consciousness. I experienced sleep paralysis, heard things that weren’t there and watched some of my dream start to form. I would do that every night if I could.

    And best way, as in best working, for me would have to be Wake Back to Bed method (WBTB) sometimes with Mneomonic Induction of Lucid Dream (MILD) – the repetition can get on my nerves.
