Excellent question. Being an experienced lucid dreamer myself, there are dozens of way, but for a beginner, i recommend the MILD (Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams), technique this is the simplest and easiest to learn type of lucid dreaming.
Before i get into it, let me tell you some pros & cons
Pros: Easy, Once you do this the first time you've done it correct, and will get easier and easier.
Fast, Doesn't take much time unless you Don't stick to it.
Cons: Requires devotion - start slacking off and you'll stop doing things that get you lucid.
Chances - Since this isn't a advanced technique, you'll get a lot of results the better you get, but you won't always get lucid.
So here's what you do.
1. This is a very basic thing that you must do. Reality checks. What is this you ask? Well it's checking weather or not you are sleeping. For example, and in one of my cases, Something impossible happens lets say, Fish are flying in mid air. Once you notice your brain will say "That can't happen." But you can't go lucid like this alone, much less often. You can't hear your brain speaking to you very well. Once your brain signals you in sleep, you will do your dream check procedures. Make up your own, but these are recommended, and are usually 90% effective (By my estimate. Hold your nose shut and try to breath. Unless you have holes in your nose, you'll breath through them even when closed. Do i while reading this, did yo breath through them or not? If you did, you're dreaming. Look at your hands. Common times they will be missing fingers, or will be reverse. Check right now. And finally look at an object and see if anything on it changes, like a poster, see if the text changes, or a person or something. DO NOT use clocks. They change numbers and may make you think you are not.
2. form a schedule- Well this is done one of 2 ways, everyone and a while, like an hour, or whenever something suspicious happen (Like flying fish), I would recommend a mix of both for maximum potential.
3. Sleep time- If you go to sleep and wake up in 9 hours, or a few minutes, you will probably not remember any dreams. Don't think you just didn't dream. Everyone dreams every night, but as life goes on they forget their dreams, and so the night just appears blank. Try this: Set a timer to go off at a predesignates time, like 5 hours, 6hours, 4 hours, 7 hours, anytime you feel comfortable with, when you find the right time, put it down on any device that has an alarm. But! Put it on an alarm that goes off by its self after a while. When woken up, stay absolutely still. Try as hard as you can to remember ANY dreams at all. By the way, as you do Dream recall sessions more often, you may find that 1 night might have several dreams, 1 dream cuts off and an other one starts. This also opens up opportunities for WILD technique, but you'll get into that later.
4.Dream recall- You should start doing this to remember your lucids first, weather or not the dream was lucid is not important. Make a journal, online or on paper, and write down your dream, don't write down the most epic novel at 4 AM in the morning though! You can do that when you've finished sleeping for the night. For the Mid-night (Not midnight, this can happen anytime) awakening, just write down key concepts, like people, phrases, and most importantly --
5.Dream signs - Reoccurring things that happen in dreams that are otherwise impossible in real life, flying fish, purple hippos, swimming birds. Though weather or not it is impossible is not necessary. It can be people, fictional characters, phrases, places, anything! Recognise your dream signs and you will most likely go lucid.
This is the most basic way i can tell you this, but if you want i recommend going to to see more tutorials.
