I had a dream where I lost a ring given to me as a child and when I asked the people around me if they have seen it, they replied by offering cheap copies. Then subconsoiusly, I remembered, "Wait a minute, it's in the guest bedroom"

That "recall" made me realize I was dreaming and woke me up.

How can I use various objects as a way to reprogram my subconscious (and dreams) via arranging before I go to sleep?

For example, meditate on an object for courage before sleeping? Any ideas?

Meditate on an object? If you want to use objects, use them as objects. If you want to meditate on something, choose a deity of some sort, as they tend to be a little more precise.

In Castaneda's book, it was recommended that he wear a ring that is a little bit too tight for his dreaming work. That slight uncomfortableness will draw your attention there like a beacon, which will carry over to the dream world. You ask yourself why your finger feels weird, then "Oh yeah! because I'm wearing that ring on my waking body!:"

Wearing an uncomfortably tight ring creates an anchor point to the waking world. Doesn't have to be a ring, you can get creative. A jalepeno pepper up the ass would probably do the trick.

If you're not going to be making physical contact with an object, then it's best to crank up the novelty factor of the objects you use. It's gotta be something that draws your attention like a magnet. Novel objects like those I might place under my pillow. For instance, a live rattlesnake, safely in a bag, underneath your pillow will create an inseparable bond of attention between you and that snake without physical contact, at least while the proximity lasts..

Like I said, novelty captures attention. That was a novel example. My preaching is my practice. :)

Sometimes, you just crack me up. Anyways, I think we've hijacked this long enough.
