How can I have more nightmares?

I would like to have more nightmares. Sure, they are disturbing, but only for the first 30 minutes or so after waking. After that, I find I can use their irrational flavor and sense of dread in my creative work. Hence I am looking to have more. Does anybody know what I can do to increase their frequency (short of committing or suffering atrocities)?

When I was a kid, my mom said not to combine sweet and sour before going to sleep (e.g., a pickle and ice cream), else you would bring on a nightmare. Serious investigation of this as an adult has indicated it is false. Perhaps somebody else knows a method I can try?
Nothing involving illegal chemicals, please.
Thanks for any help.
