>>17198010 this, plus: >set a timer to start playing spoopy noises an hour or so after you fall asleep >get someone to sneak in and poke you/mess with you while you're sleeping, but without waking you up >sleep in an uncomfortable position or one in which your arm or leg might fall asleep or there might be something lying across your throat (of course you don't want to choke in your sleep) >sleep with one or more limbs dangling off the edge of the bed - might induce falling dreams and the most obvious >watch/read/listen to something scary or disturbing before bed there's no way to guarantee you'll have a nightmare, but those things should help.
>>17198005 Funny you should ask. I tried to force a nightmare the other night in order for inspiration for horror filmmaking, and boy did I get a good one. Listen to Pharmakon's "abandon" album, and then listen to Enemite "Wuyan" album. Play silent hill. Think about the worst dreams you've ever had. Look up images of real death. Do this for an entire evening. While listening to the albums picture the bleakest scenarios- listening to your S.O getting fucked for money as you lie in a heap crying. Getting a forced abortion. Really nasty stuff. Your subconscious will cook you up something delicious.
Sleeping on your back with your hands in the chest will cause nightmares because , as you 'll know during sleep breathing becomes deep and slow , to oxygenate the brain , also metabolism slows and all physical energy is used in the processing of information ... and neurological hands as chest press , the amount of oxygen going to your brain is more limited, the brain has to do more with less energy and dreams tend to become chaotic and confusing = nightmares.
>>17199575 Yes, I've never understood why, but sleeping on my back used to guarantee that I have a nightmare or get sleep paralysis. Also, I don't recommend this but taking sleep aids like Unisom would cause me to have very vivid and scary dreams. Taking twice the recommended would almost guarantee it. Might do the same for you, but I'd try a more natural way to avoid causing dependence,and of course taking more than the recommended dose always has it's risks.
>>17199272 >>17199322 not OP but i sleep like that every night and haven't had a nightmare in years, maybe it's just a personal thing that varies from person to person. However, I do have very confusing and weird dreams, not scary but just weird as fuck
>>17198005 Idk how old you are but if you can get your hands on some chantix(a pill to help you stop smoking) I would almost guarantee you will have the most vivid dream ever. Not sure if they'll be nightmares, but definitely weird dreams. I keep some around just for this purpose
>>17199735 The most unsettling thing about sleeping on Chantix is that I never felt like I was truly asleep. Some part of me remained on guard. It was more like lucid dreaming, what I thought it might feel like to be hypnotized. And it didn’t entirely go away come morning. As I showered, shaved, and scrambled into clothes, I tried to shake a weird, paranoid sense that I’d just been psychically raped by a household appliance.
People always say don't have sugar before bed because it causes nightmares. Eat some candy/chocolate and chug soda. Also cover yourself in blankets and turn the heat up, it will make your body overheat like when you have a fever and the pressure of the blankets will make it harder to breathe.

ok this isnt 100% but what your going to want to do is
1) binge watch something that you havent seen before. this can be tough to find something but you are going to want to flood your subconscious with new data that takes up hours of a day. do this on your day off
2) fap the day you are binge watching something. it will release some chemicals in your brain that will increase brain activity a little
3) eat before you go to bed. its bad to do this often but the sugars in your blood stream will increase activity during rem state sleep
4) take a hot shower after eating but before you go to bed this will relax you and accelerate digestion some but not a lot. even if your a morning shower person to bad its one of the steps
now i know you are saying but i want a nightmare. i said its not 100% but the combination of flooding the subconscious with new data and increasing brain activity chemically in a natural way tends to give people odd dreams. if it doesnt work the first time try it again the next day
