The Lucid Dreamer

We all dream every night. Some people might tell you they don't, but all they really mean is they don't remember their dreams. During most dreams, the person is not aware that they are dreaming, and accepts whatever situations, no matter how unbelievable and far fetched, as reality. However it is possible to become consciously aware while still dreaming, this is a lucid dream, and the people who do it are lucid dreamers.

To be a lucid dreamer means not only to become aware when you are dreaming, but to discover that you can actually take control of your dreams. Realizing this possibility, you can direct your subconscious mind to create limitless possibilities. Any experience, fantasy or adventure you can imagine is waiting for you each night.

Beyond these endless other worlds waiting for you to discover, there are many other opportunities for the lucid dreamer. The direct communication between your conscious and subconscious mind means lucid dreams can be the perfect place for learning, problem solving and self-discovery.
