"The MILD technique works on what we call 'prospective memory' - that is, your ability to remember to do things in the future. By repeating a phrase that you will remember you're dreaming, it forms an intention in your mind that you will, in fact, remember that you are dreaming, leading to a lucid dream,"
reality testing - which involves checking your environment several times a day to see whether or not you're dreaming.
wake back to bed - waking up after five hours, staying awake for a short period, then going back to sleep in order to enter a REM sleep period, in which dreams are more likely to occur.
MILD (mnemonic induction of lucid dreams) - which involves waking up after five hours of sleep and then developing the intention to remember that you are dreaming before returning to sleep, by repeating the phrase: "The next time I'm dreaming, I will remember that I'm dreaming." You also imagine yourself in a lucid dream.

I solved lucid dreaming around a year ago after finding that megadosing of galantamine before sleep (16 mg) almost sure will produce LD and out-of-body experiences. (Warning: unpleasant side effects and risks)
But taking 8 mg in the middle of the night (as it is recommended everywhere) doesn't work for me.
