A lucid dream is a dream during which the dreamer is aware of dreaming. During lucid dreaming, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over the dream characters, narrative, and environment.
Simply put, you become aware that you are dreaming while in the process of dreaming.
Scientifically speaking, it is a hybrid state of consciousness.
Although Lucid dreaming has only been scientifically verified in the last 30 years, Tibetan Dream Yoga, which is the original form of lucid dreaming, has been documented for at least 1,000 years.
