What is Lucid Dreaming?
In a very basic sense lucid dreaming is an awareness that you are dreaming, while in a dream. Now, that may not seem like such a big deal, but being conscious while dreaming has several implications. Firstly it means that you are more likely to remember the dream and make connections upon waking with what your subconscious may be trying to tell you, perhaps alert you to a person or behaviour that is damaging or show you the answer to a problem you’ve been facing. Secondly if you are conscious while dreaming, you have the opportunity to take control of your dream.
