Also, researchers from MIT developed a way to stimulate specific lucid dreams. The person wears a device called Dormio, which will be used to track their sleep. Dormio detects when the wearer enters the sleep stage known as hypnagogia. Hypnagogia is where lucid dreaming can be stimulated. Dormio will then wake up the wearer with a voice note. For example, the voice note could prompt the person by saying ‘tree.’ Then the person should dream about trees!

That's the idea/approach I'm most fascinated with. By learning to consciously control the dream, you are learning to control your subconscious. From a psychological/psychoanalytical point of view your subconscious is directly responsible for things that happen in your life - people you "attract", success/failures you have, etc. So by learning to control it in the dream you are making a big step towards learning to control it in general, which might be a very direct way of making huge changes in your life. But this takes some understanding of the mechanics of subconscious, how it's represented in the dream, what are you controlling in terms of subconscious mind, when you control the dream, etc.

Do you think that more control of your lucid dream characters, narrative or environment could reflect your real ability to handle these things while awake?

Thank you for your contribution Patrick Joseph. The session asked us to focus on how lucid dreams could be made useful. The session author referenced a paper https://psycnet.apa.org/record/2010-22015-002 which shows that people can in fact perfect skills during lucid dreaming. We should contribute our suggestions on what skills could be practiced during lucid dreams.
