I can't lucid dream anymore so here is how I get ideas these days. When I want to see a painting or hear a poem, I lay down with an iPad mounted above me. And then block out all light and sound by wearing Bose QC35 Noise Canceling Headphones and a sleeping mask. I first listen for each line of a quatrain. They come fast (the moment I put my mask back on). When the quatrain is completed. I then watch my hypnogogic imagery for the painting that goes with that quatrain. That is not as easy as it use to be. If I don't see an image, I wait until I have a dream about it that night. Or just add the quatrain to my website without a painting to go with it. I accept any ideas from myself that seem to have come from somewhere other than me.
