The word lucid means mentally clear or conscious awareness in a dream. Achieving the awareness of self and the ability to know you are dreaming while dreaming is the official definition of Lucidity. However, there is low lucidity and high lucidity. We want to achieve high lucidity where we can actually control the dream. Not just achieve awareness.
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO LUCID DREAM?
The subconscious mind has a wealth of knowledge and insight that we can access through our sleep while dreaming. During a Lucid Dream we can consciously communicate with our subconscious mind and direct the dream to find solutions to problems and create faster results of our goals in our waking life. Lucid dreaming takes time and effort. It is not something most can achieve without dedicated practice. My hope is that these techniques provide a shortcut so that you can achieve Lucid Dreaming consistently.
