What are Lucid Dreams?
When lucid dreaming we have dreams where we become aware that we are dreaming, and then gain an element of control within the dream. It's a dream state where you can make decisions about how you want to manipulate your dreams, for example ensuring that
have a happy ending.
Lucid dreams are usually more vivid than ordinary dreams. Dream images appear sharper and brighter, and are subject to your control.
How to Have Lucid Dreams
It should be stated that lucid dreaming is a learnt technique and it's not possible to dream lucidly all the time. Relaxation, meditation and visualization are all excellent tools to master lucid dreaming, but it's still not always possible to have lucid dreams on demand. Also, sometimes it appears that some parts of dreams can be lucid whle other parts are not. Thus, it remains within the decision remains in the dreaming self rather than the conscious self.
Sometimes, a lucid dream happens for no apparent reason. The level of lucidity can also vary greatly. At one level you may be aware that everything you are experiencing in the dream is occurring in your mind, and you never feel threatened by anything in your dream. In a low-level lucid dream, you may be aware to an extent that you are dreaming, but you are not aware enough to radically alter the content of the dream.
Lucid dreaming requires training. If you have patience, you can have wonderful results in due time. Make sure to check out our

Benefits of Lucid Dreaming
In The Complete Book of Dreams & Dreaming, Pamela J Ball asserts that the art of lucid dreaming can help us to make adjustments in our every day lives:
'In lucid dreaming we know we are dreaming and we know we can change the outcome of the dream, so there is no reason why we cannot change the outcome of our lives. By learning how to manage our dreams we can enhance our lifestyles. We are capable of developing the relationship between the logical, rational side and the instinctive, intuitive side (the left and right sides of the brain). This should enable us to achieve personal success. Creative visualization coupled with lucid dreaming would then become a very potent tool for the advancement of the whole human race.'
Lucid dreaming is a useful way of dealing with our own inner demons. It's a good way of raising our consciousness and eveloping internal images to assist in emotional healing in a creative way.
