1 – Remember your dreams easier.
When you meditate you improve your awareness. When you are more aware of your surroundings, it is way easier to remember your dreams in the morning.
2 – You never forget your dreams.
Dreams can be very hard to remember because they're stored away down somewhere in your subconscious. You don't have to forget them. When you are in a meditative trance, it is way more easy to get into your subconscious and even remember dreams that happened long ago.
3 – Staying still/ Keeping your eyes closed.
Meditation is like relaxation on the mind. The more you meditate, the calmer you are. When you got a calm mind, staying still and keeping your eyes closed is much easier to do.
4 – Instant lucid dreams.
When you first wake up, it is easy to go right back into a dream and be lucid. Your mind is already in a different state of consciousness before you have fully woken up. When you meditate, it is easier to shift your awareness back into the dream to go right back inside. This is one of the easiest ways to give yourself lucid dreams, and meditation makes it even easier to do.

5 – Staying calm inside the dream.
If you get too emotional inside a lucid dream, you lose control of your emotions which can easily wake yourself up. Meditation makes it way easier to control your emotions, making it way easier to stay in the lucid dream.
6 – Staying inside the dream for longer.
The whole point of lucid dreaming is keeping your awareness. If you lose awareness you just go back into a normal dream and it's a lucid dream no more. To avoid this, you need to keep your awareness, and stay focused on your lucid dream. Meditation makes it way easier for focus on the dream, keeping yourself from waking up.
7 – Having more control inside the dream.
One of the fun things about lucid dreaming is being able to manipulate your dream world. While it can sometimes be hard or near impossible to do, it takes time and practice. Meditation helps you control your mind and cuts down on how much practice time you have to do. Your lucid dreams are way more fun when you meditate.
8 + 9 + 10 The other main techniques.
Reality checks, lucid affirmations and visualizations are all great tricks, and they are also forms of meditation or hypnosis.
Reality checks. When you do a reality check, you are not simply looking at something. You're actually focusing all of your awareness onto it. You're looking at the digital watch/hand and you're concentration on one thought: Am I Dreaming?
Lucid affirmations. You're repeating an affirmation repeatedly to your subconscious mind hoping that it will listen to you. Doing hypnosis here.
Visualizations. When picture a scene in your mind, you're concentrating on the actual scene. Nothing else matters. Hopefully soon, you'll be fully immersed in the scene as a lucid dream.
