This can be done in many ways, but the most common technique is
spinning. If you want something to appear, then expecting it around
the corner or behind you is quite effective. You can find a big TV and
a remote, and start changing the channels to a scene you like, then
just jump in the TV. If you want a special scene can you expect that
to appear when you change the channels. You might also try finding a
bridge, were you see a lot of scenes flowing by. If you find you like,
just jump. You might try asking a dream character where you might find
what you are seeking. You can try finding a door and imagine a
person/place on the other side. And you can give slow morphing a
try. You can also try closing your eyes and imagine the scene forming
around you. But the key is to expect things to happen.
