Hi,

I'm not new to lucid dreaming , just new to WILD.

And this happened before during my first attempt.

I just never really got the chance to confirm if this is Sleep Paralysis and/or if it's the *transition* that happens in WILD because I never saw any other member who posted a similar experience before..

So for WILD practitioners out there, have you experienced the same thing during your first attempts?

here's what happened:

I was going to take my afternoon - really sleepy to the point that I even slept listening to the music I was relaxing to.

Then, I woke up from my nap, turned to my side (as the tutorial I was following suggested to do), then I focused on the titinus ringing in my ears, then it suddenly became louder and louder and like hot air started going out both my ears.

It was really ticklish so I ended up waking up.

so have you also experienced this before??

You never know what you're gonna get when you WILD. Nothing is too strange. I have had the ringing many times, and it gets more intense. Sometimes it is so loud that I have heard people refer to it as "Exploding Head Syndrome" (LOL) But it is all just non-physical sensations. Go with it, no matter how it feels. The vibration state can feel ticklish, but it's mind over (what you think is) matter.

This is very common experience for me. It often times leads to a lucid dream. It is actually a "dream marker" that I review. I try to make it an intention to recognize this as an opportunity to have a lucid dream. So when I hear it, I can say "yes I know what this is and I'm "dreaming."

It is often accompanied by visual phenomena, like flashing lights and floaters.

When its intense and occurs at the transition to sleep I call it "hypnagogic tinnitus rush." When it occurs as I'm waking up it would be a "hypnapompic tinnitus rush."

After I recognize it, there is a great opportunity to experiment. I focus on the lights and sounds. Sometimes I go into an altered or trance state. It can lead to a vibrational state and/or a very vibrant experience. Sometimes I feel the sounds and lights are in synchrony, and with my mental state, as well. I can get the sensation of experiencing "resonance."

Strange sensations like these can easily happen when attempting WILD. The most important thing is to relax.

Know that nothing will happen to you and that it is ok to relax. This will allow you to sleep into the lucid dream more easily.
