Lucid Dreams

The term lucid dream was coined by Fredrik van Eeden. Lucidity means mental clarity. This clarity refers to a state of awareness that you are dreaming when you are actually dreaming in your sleep. Since you are conscious, you can participate or even manipulate the sequence of events in your dream.

The lucidity usually occurs after the dream has started and you realize that whatever is happening is not a physical reality, but a dream. You realize that whatever you are seeing in dream is not possible in real life. For example, you see in your dream that you are jumping from a plane without a parachute.

The basic condition of lucidity is the awareness that you are actually dreaming. Another important element is the quality and the level of lucidity. If the lucidity level is high, you become aware that whatever you have experienced in your dream is actually happening in your mind. Therefore, you do not have to be afraid that you are jumping from the plane.
