A lucid dream is an extremely vivid dream. in a lucid dream you are aware that you are dreaming. you can train yourself to do reality checks throughout the day so it gets cemented into your subconscious. this way you will do reality checks in your dream to see if you are actually dreaming. this is a way to become lucid. common reality checks include holding your nose shut and looking at a digital clock. this is because in your dreams you can still breath if you hold your nose shut, and numbers are disordered commonly. once you are lucid you have the power to do whatever you want. fly, make things appear, make things disappear, or change locations...the list is endless.

A dream where, inside the dream, you know you are dreaming. Imagine being Neo in the matrix. Knowing its fake and having control. These dreams are also more intense and vivid than regular dreams.
I had a lucid dream where I flew around.

A single-player video game similar to a regular dream, except you're the Game Master.

Some say it's actually a multiplayer game (especially those believing in New Age nonsense), but these rumors are denied by science.
I saw a wingless plane flying in my dream. That made me realize I was dreaming, so I entered a lucid dream.

Lucid dreaming is basically dreaming while being aware that you are dreaming.If you are in a lucid dream, you will usually have some power over your dream - anything from being able to fly or making an object or room appear behind a door or inside a pocket right up to being able to change into animals and create a whole world! Lucid dreams have been scientifically proved to exist.
Last night I wanted to fly, and I flew. And I was in total control of it.

A lucid dream is one in which the dreamer has total, or partial, control of oneself and one's surroundings, by making the realization that he or she is actually asleep. It is this realization that allows the dreamer to experience what is known as a lucid dream on one of these possible levels:

1. The realization has been made, but there is no control of oneself or of one's surroundings
2. Semi-control of oneself, with no control over one's surroundings
3. Full control over oneself, still with no control of one's surroundings
4. Semi-control over both oneself and one's surroundings
5. Full control over both oneself and one's surroundings

There are many techniques for lucid dreaming that have been developed and improved upon over the centuries. These include: habitual reality checking, recording dreams (dream journal), meditation, verbal reinforcement, etc.

The best method (the only one from the 21st century), requires nothing but an Android device, and can be used to experience a lucid dream tonight; whereas the previous methods could take months, even years, before results are seen. To try the Android method, search for "Lucid Dreamer" by Guardanis on Google Play.
