      Transitioning from closed eye visuals to a lucid dream

      I do night shift at a petrol station, when I go to bed after a shift I sometimes see customers after customer when I close my eyes in my bed. Its more sensing their presence than actually seeing them but I can sense what they look like. I there a technique I could use to transition to lucid when this happens?

      Interesting that you still see customers after work. I like that things can just ingrain into one's mind like that.
      Anyways, when you think about lucid dreams are also closed-eye hallucinations, just on a very vivid level. If you're startled by these images try and train yourself away from being startled and simply observe them, letting them become more and more vivid until you enter a dream. YMMV though.

      I have a similar experience myself with picking blueberries. I've found myself and also heard from others that they experience the same thing. After picking for a couple hours and having a nap or going to sleep after, you will find that your mind will almost always wander to seeing blueberries right before you pick them.

      This might be the case with some more things but I'm not sure how you could get lucid from this. You wouldn't experience this when you are entering rem sleep, only when going to bed for the first time so wbtb and wild are out. I'd like to hear other ideas.
