This is to be employed simultaneously with all indirect techniques, as a backdrop to them. While performing any technique, lucid dreamingr should try to fall asleep simultaneously, as if the technique being performed (phantom wiggling, rotation, etc.) were necessary not for lucid dreaming entrance, but for accelerating falling asleep. a lucid dreamr should simply try to fall asleep to the technique being performed without actually falling asleep. Any technique will usually begin to work at that moment, and it can be easily brought to lucid dreaming. One no longer needs to employ or continue on with concurrent forced falling asleep at this point. For example, if a practitioner’s hand did not start moving within a few seconds of aggressive phantom wiggling, he will then begin trying to wiggle his hand while trying to fall asleep at the same time. The hand will usually yield to wiggling within several seconds, and the range of motion will begin to increase. Backdrop forced falling asleep may be included in the routine both from the start of attempts, as well as only when the techniques themselves are not working. Such an approach often guarantees the greatest odds of success for indirect techniques.
When performed properly, backdrop use of forced falling asleep makes the choice of technique performed upon awakening inconsequential, as any technique will immediately start working.
