>>1050991 With hypnosis, you might catch yourself in hypnagogia more frequently. You'll know when you're in it because you won't be able to hear the audio track even though you know it should be playing. If you manage to catch yourself in it, you have a chance of dropping into a lucid dream.
I'd recommend trying Uberman as well. You'll have 6x as many chances per day, you'll drop into REM almost instantly very frequently, and you'll have an easier time keeping your dream stable once you become lucid. I believe hypnotic trance would help you with Uberman since it makes falling asleep easy even when you're not that tired.
>>1051191 I don't even know how to get started with Uberman, since I always feel groggy after daytime napping so the inbetween steps would probably be difficult. I don't think anything but WILD technique would work for me, which is why I'd love it if there was an audio track which tried to help me overcome the need to move and scratch myself by trying to dull my nerves and disable my body.
>>1051237 You feel the need to move and scratch because you're focusing too much on trying to relax. Try one of the tracks and focus on the voice instead. If you need to scratch, then scratch. If you feel restless, try some of the suggestions on the doc.
>>1051378 There are about 200 in the doc in the OP. It doesn't really matter which one you pick, as long as you can get comfortable with the voice and BGM.
I never got it down perfectly due to schedule conflicts, but I was taking 4-6 30min naps a day and an occasional 3 hour sleep (roughly every other day). I did it a few years ago, and I'm not doing it now since I have to work for around 8 consecutive hours each weekday. It was exhausting. Sometimes I had no problem waking up, and sometimes I would sleep through 5 alarms. Sometimes I would sit upright while still asleep when someone else tried to wake me up. When I underslept, I felt doubly exhausted. When I overslept, I wished I could stop feeling things. When I decided to stop, it took me one very painful month to get back to a normal sleep schedule. I did it for the lucid dreams and the extra waking time, and I got plenty of both.
>>1051378 To be a bit more descriptive... On Uberman, the distinction between days gets blurred. When sleeping for 30 minutes at a time, I didn't really feel the divide between "yesterday" and "today". I also got cravings for things I don't normally like, like grapefruit juice. It got hard to remember when I last did something that normally follows a circadian rhythm, like brush after "breakfast" and "dinner" (so I ended up brushing after everything I ate). Even meals became less defined, and I would have something closer to a snack almost once per 4-hour block. Without uberman, I had far more ideas than time to implement them. On uberman, there were times where I had an extreme excess of time.
>>1052008 You're supposed to remain focused through hypnagogia and, if you're sleep deprived enough, you'll fall straight into REM. That's how WILD works. Staying conscious through hypnagogia is difficult unless you can fall asleep quickly. The tracks give you something to focus on, and they bring you down quickly. I don't know what you're looking for if that's not it.
>>1052122 It's about staying conscious while falling into REM. Falling asleep quickly helps with staying focused because it's really easy to lose focus during hypnagogia, so you don't want to drag that out. If you're not sleep deprived, then you won't fall straight into REM, and you'll have pretty much no chance of doing WILD.
It's only 20 minutes long, and it's there to help you fall asleep. You won't even be able to hear it once you hit hypnagogia.
If you're paranoid about the track, then there's no point in using it since it will just prevent you from relaxing enough to fall asleep. There's nothing to be paranoid about though. Hypnosis is an active thing, meaning you have to put effort into it for it to do anything. It just lowers inhibitions, but it can't make you do anything you're not trying to do. Listening to the files passively will do nothing but make you relaxed.
