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.

Interesting Dream

I was in a building in a busy downtown city and all of a sudden alarms were going off and it was being evacuated. Some type of chemical/poison was released somehow. So as I exited the building, I am standing along side a busy one way street; traffic coming from right to left as I was facing across the street. 

Looking over, I see a woman with a red sweater sitting on a bench looking at me inquisitively and I at her. I start crossing the street and continue to ponder why she is examining me so closely and the significance. I get to close enough to her (but not out of the street), and realize and say to her, "I'm dreaming, aren't I?!" After this realization, I turn and face the oncoming traffic and see my car coming towards me (driver unknown)...in real life and in the dream, I had a sticker on the hood that said, "Satori". I yelled "Satori", banged my hands on the car and realize it drove right through me. Then I was standing in more oncoming traffic, but I couldn't hold onto the lucid state and was wisked away into unconsciousness again.

  5. To stay in the dream it can help a lot to spin in circles really fast. I didn't believe it at first, but strangely enough, it works.

  8. I had my first lucid dream in ages last night. The only way to describe it would be the Hangover set on a space station full of creepy aliens + guns!
