I thought it might be helpful to tell that I learned to be a lucid dreamer when I was younger by telling myself to look at my hand in my dream. I kept telling myself that when I looked at my hand I would wake up. At first I would do this and know I was dreaming and imediately wake up. With practice I could do so and not wake up and then I could eventually control my dreams. This took practice and many nights of telling myself to look at my hand in my dream but was also the easiest way for me to learn to be a lucid dreamer and let my conscience be in touch with my sub conscience. Hope this works for someone else also.
