Urinate Induced Lucid Dreams, or UILD, can be an interesting technique to induce lucid dreams. As you grow more proficient at becoming lucid during your dreams, you may not need to use such extreme techniques as this one and Thirst Induced Lucid Dreams. However, this can be a great way to start lucid dreaming or to get back into it if you’re having trouble.
One reason I like Urinate Induced Lucid Dreams is that it can be performed by people who can’t use the Thirst Induced Lucid Dreams technique for health reasons. If you can’t dehydrate yourself, then over-hydrate yourself and use UILD to jumpstart your lucid dreams.
Here’s how it works
UILD is a good way to get into the habit of doing reality checks. We all use the restroom at least three or four times throughout the day. Start by doing a reality check every time you use the restroom, wherever you are.
Then, before you go to bed, load up on water so that you have to urinate during the night. Oftentimes, when you do this, you’ll actually dream of relieving yourself quite frequently. This way, you can remember to perform a reality check when you use the restroom in your dream.
Another advantage of UILD is that it can automatically wake you up after the five or six hours you need to sleep off delta sleep. If you have to get up and go to the bathroom, then just do so. Before you go back to bed, though, drink some more water and stay up for a while. Staying up after a few hours of sleep and then sleeping for another hour or two is one of the best ways to induce lucid dreams, after all, as it coincides with the WBTB (Wake Back to Bed) technique.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll have to go to the restroom again within an hour of drinking lots more water. Hopefully, you’ll dream about using the restroom and will remember to do a reality check when you’re dreaming about it. Once you recognize the fact that you’re in a dream, you can use UILD to become lucid and begin manipulating the dream world around you.
Some potential setbacks
Over-hydration can actually be a health risk for a few people with certain conditions. Disorders of the kidneys, for instance, can cause electrolytes in your body to drop, which puts you at risk for an over-balance of water in the body. If you know you’re at risk for over-hydration, be extra careful when using this technique.
Some people, such as pregnant women or those with bladder problems, might be able to use the UILD technique without even drinking excessive amounts of water. If you already have to urinate frequently during the night, just start training yourself to do a reality check every time you urinate. Chances are that urination will factor into your dreams frequently, so you don’t need to do more than just train your mind to recognize and respond to this fact in order to successfully perform UILD.
Of course, one of the major risks with UILD is actually urinating! Often times, when children wet the bed it’s because their bodies have less control over their bladders, and because they dream of wetting the bed or relieving themselves in some way. If an adult bladder is over-full, the same problem can occur. If UILD could get you into an embarrassing situation, you may want to try a different technique.
Is it effective?
The truth is that UILD is effective for some people, particularly those who always find themselves using the restroom in their dreams, anyway. Anyone can try this technique, though. You might be surprised and find that it’s the one that works best for you to start lucid dreaming.
