FILD is a great induction technique I like to use when I’m lazy. It’s short for Finger Induced Lucid Dreams. FILD is nice when you’re all out of chocolates for RILD, or for some reason your brain is just too stubborn for PILD. Before you attempt FILD, however, make sure you’ve already developed a habit of performing reality checks. Finger Induced Lucid Dreams are difficult to bring about if you haven’t been practicing your reality checks on a regular basis.
Another benefit of FILD is its capacity to almost immediately induce a lucid dream on demand. This is why it’s so attractive as a lucid dreaming induction technique. The downside to this, though, is that FILD is only effective when you’re really tired, or are drifting heavily back to sleep.
How FILD works
Find some way to wake yourself up after several hours of sleep, so that when you wake up, you feel extremely tired and want to go straight back to sleep. During this short waking period, the first thought that comes to mind should be performing the FILD technique. Fall back to sleep as normal, but as you’re drifting back to sleep, move the index finger and middle finger of one hand ever so slightly as if you’re pressing gently down on two piano keys. This gentle pressing motion should be so subtle that you should only try to be moving your fingers up and down one millimeter at most. The only thing you should feel is the soft tugging of your finger muscles. Once 20 to 30 seconds have passed, perform a reality check. A good reality check to use during this time is the breathing test — pinch your nostrils shut and try to breathe in through your nose.
Once you’re in the dreamscape, you’ll want to implement stabilization techniques to keep your lucidity. And when you want to fly around or control the environment around you, don’t forget to perform some really nifty dream control techniques.
