A lucid dream is when a dreamer becomes consciously aware that they are dreaming while the dream is still taking place. When you have a lucid dream it transforms the dream from nothing more than a faint fuzzy memory to an intense and incredible experience. Imagine being in a world just as real as the one you are in now, completely controlled by your thoughts and mind, where you can fulfill all your desires and wishes with no consequences or limitations.
You are exploring the deepest thoughts of your very own subconscious and using the greatest tool for self reflection and self discovery. Lucid dreaming cannot be described or explained with words but only once someone experiences a lucid dream will they truly understand it.
Once a dreamer becomes lucid they are able to interact and control their dreams, changing the scenes of the dream, the characters and the experiences. How much control they have over their dreams depends on their level of lucidity. When the dreamer gains complete lucidity the dream world can become more real than reality itself. The colors and imagery in the dream are much brighter and lively; the experiences in the dream are much more real and intense; everything about the dream changes when you gain conscious awareness.
It is a world where there is no limitations and anything is possible. You can travel through time, fly through space, visit other planets or do whatever you can imagine. There is so much that you can do and explore in a lucid dream and there is so many benefits to it.
Most people never have a lucid dream in their entire lives but it is something that everyone can and should learn how to do and experience for themselves. When you start having lucid dreams it will change your entire perspective of dreams and they will have a whole new meaning for you.
