Mnemonic induction of lucid dreams

Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams (MILD) is based on a behavior called prospective memory, which involves setting an intention to do something later. In MILD, you make the intention to remember that you’re dreaming. Here’s how to use the MILD technique:

  1. As you fall asleep, think of a recent dream
  2. Identify a “dreamsign,” or something that’s irregular or strange in the dream. An example is the ability to fly
  3. Think about returning to the dream. Acknowledge that the dreamsign only happens when you dream
  4. Tell yourself, “The next time I dream, I want to remember that I am dreaming.” Recite the phrase in your head
