What is Lucid Dreaming?

The basic definition of lucid dreaming requires nothing more than becoming aware that you are dreaming. However, the quality of lucidity can vary greatly. When lucidity is at a high level, you are aware that everything experienced in the dream is occurring in your mind, that there is no real danger, and that you are asleep in bed and will awaken shortly. With low-level lucidity, you may be aware to a certain extent that you are dreaming, perhaps enough to fly or alter what you are doing, but not enough to realize that the people are dream representations, or that you can suffer no physical damage, or that you are actually in bed.

  2. Is this a legitimate way to track your own lucid dreams? Wouldn't you need a professional?

    I think lucid dreams have a lot to do with unlocking our potential for cosmic consciousness. You should look up a guy named Steven Greer. I think you'll like his work.
