Article Body:
The first step to using hypnosis in lucid dreaming or "dream control"
begins with remembering your dreams. A key point to consider is that
everybody dreams. You may not remember your dreams when you wake but in
an 8 hour night of sleeping you usually have five or more dreams.

Before retiring at night take several deep breaths. Close your eyes and
relax each muscle group in turn. Begine with your feet. Tense them and
hold for a few seconds then release the tension and relax. Move up your
body to your head until you have relaxed your entire body. Imagine that
you are descending a long flight of stairs with ten steps. Breath with
each step you take and repeat the word "relax". Once at the bottom
imagine that you are in a tranquil setting and rest there awhile.

Now mentally tell yourself that when you awaken you will be fresh,
rested, full of energy and will remember your last dream in vivid detail.

Have a pen and small book beside your bed and upon awakening immediately
ask yourself, what did I dream last night? Focus on taking deep breaths.
Then write down in your dream in as much detail as you can recall. This
is an important step so don't overlook it!

After several days of this pratise look over your written dream accounts
and look for recurring themes. I always have something to drink or some
sort of drinking liquid in mine. Your "dream sign" may be different.

Now when retiring the next night go through your relaxation exercise and
tell yourself that you will become aware that you are dreaming when you
encounter your dream sign. Tell yourself that it is a sign that you
should awaken in your dream.

Do this for several nights and you   will experience a lucid dream.
Remember to record your dream just   after waking. Studies have shown that
many people have lucid dreams then   forget that they had them a short time
after waking. Keeping a journal of   your dream experiences keeps them
fresh in your mind and trains your   brain to remember them.
Don't be discouraged if you don't lucid dream at the start. This is a new
skill that must be learned. If you persevere you will achieve results.
