Usually, my WILDs tend to be like OBEs. I say this because those dreams always start with me on my bed in the position I fell asleep in. Here’s what usually happens: Around 6:00 AM – 7:00 AM when I wake up, after a little WBTB, I lay down on my side (either side) and I stay still thinking of nothing.
After 40-60 minutes, if I’m successful at this kind of relaxation, I start to feel vibrations, hear my heart pounding, and feel my breath. After a period of blackness, with my eyes closed I start to see the parts of my room that I would be seeing if my eyes were open. Now I know that I’m dreaming.
Now I have to move my body. I start to raise one dream arm very slowly so I don‘t wake up. Then, I start to get out from under the covers and make the same motions I would make to get out of bed while awake, but I make them slowly and cautiously. Then, I’m up.
I say that this is like an OBE because, like OBEs, my dream body detaches from my physical body. However, I know that I’m not seeing the real world through the eyes of a dream body, because my room looks different, and there were a few times I saw myself on the bed but in a different position than the one I was sleeping in.
But it’s still pretty cool. It’s my favorite experience in dreams. Then, I often explore my house, and the world outside my house. But that’s another story (and a pretty wonderful one).
