What is Lucid Dreaming

What is lucid dreaming?

There are many ideas about what lucid dreaming is or isn’t. What I’ve found to be true is that lucid dreaming is when you are aware that you are in a dream. You are able to,  in that moment, notice that you are immersed in your dream, and depending on your level of lucidity, change or alter your environment and/or the things you to in it. 

There are stages or levels of lucidity within a lucid dream. You can have a low level of lucidity and find yourself easily getting caught back up in a dream because you couldn’t maintain consciousness. And you can have very high levels of lucidity which are synonymous with having an out-of-body experience, where everything can seem even more real than waking life.
