However, I am lying, and will tell you.
It's really a "practice" you have to maintain consistent practice. Look up "Reece Jones" on Youtube, I achieved lucidity in about 2-3 months under him. He is more into "Astral Projection" now, so you have to search back to get to his lucid dreaming stuff.
Make sure you keep a dream journal, believe it or not, this is a must and will make things a lot easier for you to recognize when you are dreaming. Be it in a notebook or on the PC. Make sure you review them and remember the images if you can. For me, after I write them down, the images are there as I read them with no effort involved.
One trick I learned to remembering dreams is that if you stay still right after you awake, and think about your dreams in full, you will remember them easily. With me, after I awake, every time I take an every step I feel the dream fading from my memory, except for those vivid ones, they always stick for a few hours.
There really is WAY too much to explain as to which technique of lucidity could be right for you, because there is a science and personal factor involved, but research and dabble with different methods you see here on the thread and on the web and choose the one that feels "right"..
The Astral Realm
Some call it the "Astral Realm" I like to call it "wonderland" kidding, I like to call it the "Astral Plane"
While some think lucid dreaming and astral projection is the same, it is not, and anyone who has experienced both, knows they are not the same. The Astral Plane is when your body reaches a certain frequency and can travel into the real world or even other dimensions and such. It depends on how high (or low) your frequency is. Astral projection can be achieved through lucid dreaming, and also through different kinds of meditation, it can also happen in a state of danger or stress. Some say it can be dangerous, but I never had a bad experience from it. My mother has, she thought it was some kind of devil stuff happening lol.edit on 16-5-2011 by Mizzijr because: (no reason given)edit on 16-5-2011 by Mizzijr because: (no reason given)

This is not exactly accurate. If you are reading something then it has been created by your own consciousness.
For instance, it is much different to go to someones house in a dream and try and read a note left on the table they have written than it is to simply read something in your own subjective dream. One is a real object and one is a dream object.
Try it. Real objects in the dream or astral realms cannot be read. This is because reading is a left brain function due to the logical order and progression of a sentence. There is no left brain logic in these realms. That is why you believe you can fly, or walk through walls, or see a dinosaur and it has no surprising effect on you. You don't say"What the heck is a dinosaur doing in my neighborhood." That is a logical argument that does not happen in the dream.
