1. Recall dreams

The first thing you need to do is to learn how to recall your dreams, otherwise you would not recall your lucid dreams in the first place. More importantly, it functions as a vital stepping stone for dream analyses. Recalling dreams is simple. Once you wake up, immediately ask yourself "What have I dreamt about?". Keep lying still and keep your eyes closed, have patience. Start associating. Write down any dream or dream fragment that you were able to recall.

2. Discover dreamsigns

Once you have noted down your dreams in a journal for about two to three weeks, you review your dreams and identify recurrent dream-like features that characterize your dreams: dreamsigns. This could be anything bizarre in the dream.

Do you notice any particular dreamsign that is recurrent and that frequently shows up in your dreams? Aha! You have found your target dreamsign!

3. Recognize dreamsigns

By the time you get track of your recurrent dreamsigns, you can go to bed prepared. Say to yourself, "The next time when I encounter my target dreamsign again I will remember to know that I am dreaming". Research has shown several techniques that greatly facilitate and improve your chances of becoming lucid. Once you turn lucid in your dreams, the next thing is to learn how to enjoy lucid dreaming using various dream control techniques.
