As far as questions go, this is probably the most common: What is lucid dreaming?
Lucid dreaming is when you are aware that you are dreaming. You as the dreamer have the ability to control your actions and the contents of your dream. The term “lucid dreaming” was coined by Frederick van Eeden, with the his reference to “lucid” being the mental clarity experienced in a lucid dream. Another common terms is “conscious dreaming”.
A lucid dream is often realized when a dreamer experiences something impossible or peculiar in the dream. Stephen LaBerge, an expert on lucid dreaming, refers to this as “a single out-of-place feature in an otherwise convincingly realistic scene” in his book Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming.
Having a lucid dream is a natural experience and often a lucid dream will leave you excited and refreshed after the experience.
