By definition, a lucid dream is:
“a dream state in which one is conscious enough to recognize that one is in the dream state and which stays in one’s memory.”
Beyond the Definition
Lucid dreams occurs when you realize you are dreaming in the middle of your dream.
“Wait a second. This is only a dream!” Most dreamers wake themselves up once they realize that they are only dreaming.
Other dreamers have cultivated the skill to remain in the lucid state of dreaming.
They become an active participant in their dream, make decisions in their dreams and influence the dream’s outcome without awakening
Lucidity can open endless doors to self-knowledge, exploration, and fulfillment, but it is not purely in the domain of “new-age science”.
What does Science say?
Lucid dreaming is a scientifically accepted phenomenon which has been proven to exist countless times in sleep laboratories, and whose potentials are only beginning to be explored.
