this works best if your really tired. lay on your back with your hands at your side & your eyes closed STAY PERFECTLY STILL. you must stay awake your brain will send signals to your body to see if you are ready to sleep these signals include getting an itch , changing your body position , wanting to blink or move your eyeballs (remember your eyes should be closed) you must ignore all of these impluses after about 20 to 30 minutes you will feel a weight on your chest you may even hear weird noises you are now in sleep paralasis if you open your eyes you will begin to hallucinate & you will not be able to move your body your body is completley asleep. now that you are aware that you are dreaming you can shut your eyes & dream instantly. you will be fully aware that you a dreaming & with some practice control your dreams . i already commented this on someone else's question but whaateversss !
