I have a few tricks for helping me have lucid dreams:
I have a brown leather bracelet/arm band that I wear, and during the coarse of my day if I see it, I pause and ask myself if I am dreaming. Also if I hear or see anything strange I ask myself if I am dreaming. That usually helps me when I am in the dream state to become lucid.
When I become lucid in my dreams I usually try to focus on the ground to keep myself from waking up. As I become lucid my body feels extremely tingly and feels as if I am vibrating. If I don’t focus on something I usually will awaken. When I first started, it was slightly difficult but the more practice I have the easier it gets.
I also have some guided meditation type MP3’s (you can buy the cd’s, but I just downloaded them from kazaa) that are from Hemi-sync. These give you a feeling that you are falling into a dream state but you are conscious the entire time. Besides making you feel energized and rested, it gives you a little practice for keeping control in your dreams.
