I have found another 'method' to lucid dream. I haven't tested this myself but here goes:
Lie on your back with arms on pillow above head until sleepy.
Get into your usual position.
This signals to your brain 'sleep time'
Keep telling yourself you are about to have a lucid dream and visualise walking up/down steps to the dream world.
Ignore any itches or urges to move.
You will soon see either visual disturbances (patterns) or the steps become much more vivid. Sounds are good signs.
Eventually you may feel high but not always.
You will see a scene form. The steps lead into it.
Jump into the scene.
Someone else tested this method and said:
Anyways, I waited until about 5 am to do this, to make sure I was extremely tired.
I used the method described in this picture. After about 20 minutes, I began to see flashing lights, and the lights eventually started forming patterns.
As I was imagining going up the stairs, I began to feel like I was being pulled through the sky, extremely fast, as if I was on a roller coaster. my left eye started twitching, and for a split second, I saw a field at the top of the stairs.
After this, however, I began to get excited about it finally happening, and it all reverted back to the point of just bits of flashing light. I wasn't sure if I was in the lucid dream or not, so I opened my eyes and looked around. Saw nothing. I wasn't sure whether or not I was actually in it, so I stood up, turned on my light,and looked at my fingers.
Sadly, It was RL. Lame ending, I know /:
Another random helpful quote:
I actually have done it before. It takes about 20 mins of just lying there to get the feeling of weight on your chest but once you get that far then you start to see things. I didn't have that much control per say but concentrating hard on things helps. The having flash backs from long forgotten events in your life is a norm also.
