The Dream Exit Induced Lucid Dream (DEILD) technique is used to re-enter a dream after awakening from one. It is an effective way of achieving a Wake Induced Lucid Dream (WILD).
If you're like me, waking up from a thrilling dream too soon can be a letdown. You've always wanted to be able to go right back into that same dream, but you never thought it was possible.
Not only can you learn to re-enter any dream using this technique, you will become lucid in the process!
It's the middle of the night and you've just woken up from a dream. This can occur in one of three ways:
Don't move! Keep your eyes closed and stay in the exact same position you woke up in. Try not to think about it, really. You're probably very relaxed...just stay that way.
I have to admit though, having this as your first thought when you wake up is probably the hardest part about this technique and can take some practice to achieve.
Get in the habit of keeping your body in the same position every time you wake up. This is important because it keeps you on the threshold of the dream world.
As you're lying in bed, try to let the dream come back to you. Recall as many details as you can. Feel as if you are right where you left off. Experience the sights, sounds, and emotions again...dive in!
You're lying still, fully immersed in the last dream you had, when all of a sudden you pop back in...and you're lucid!
It really is that automatic!
By staying on the verge of sleep and putting your focus back on your dream, you were able to re-enter rather effortlessly.
You may be thinking, "So all I have to do is stay still, remember my dream and I'm back in? It can't be that easy. I've tried that before."
It seems almost too simple, doesn't it?
Well, here are the two reasons why dream re-entry isn't a common nightly occurrence:
Knowing what you know now, try this tonight. You'd be amazed how easy it can be to have a lucid dream when you are more mindful of the way you wake up and fall asleep.Home › Lucid Dream Techniques › DEILD
