when you become lucid in the dream, if you want better control you can try using verbal commands. Just say out loud in a stern voice "increase
lucidity" while intending for your level of conscious awareness to increase. You can also use other commands like "increase clarity" or "increase
awareness", these commands work with basically anything, if you find yourself in trouble for example you can just say out loud "STOP!" or
"FREEZE!" and everything going on in the dream should stop in the spot leaving you free to wander.
Another good way to increase lucidity is to do 3 simple tests each and every time you become lucid. Make these tests up yourself but they should be
Q1: what did i do today?
Q2: what am i doing tomorrow?
Q3: what was my goal for this lucid dream?
you could also try doing a couple of simple math questions. The point is to make you stop for a second to gather yourself together and take it all in.
When you do this each and everytime you become lucid it gives you the chance to stop and think for a few seconds and become more conscious.
Another thing i like to do when i first become lucid, is to look around. Really take in the scenary look how colourfull and real it looks. Bend down
and pick up some sand or feel the grass in your fingers, feel the texture. That sort of thing.
I've also found that the more lucid powers you use the more consciously aware you become. So if you try out a bit of telekinesis, then fly around for
a bit, then try and make some fireballs and things like that, the more powers you try to use, the more lucid you become.
And with the recurring dream thing... this could be a good cue for you to become lucid. If it is something that happens in real life then just do a
reality check when your in that situation. And before you goto bed, think to yourself "ok i know theres a good chance i will have this same dream
again tonight, but this time when it happens im going to realise and change it", then fall asleep with that intent in your mind.
