Lucid dreams – lucid simply meaning “clear” – occur when you consciously realize you are dreaming, and find yourself capable of making deliberate choices within the dream and guiding your subconscious through the dream realm. In a typical dream, you accept the consequences of whatever happens unthinkingly. Even the most absurd situations are normalized. Lucid Dreams and their more advanced counterpart, psychic dreams, occur when there is a balance between waking and sleeping consciousness. In these dreams, we can ask direct questions of our subconscious and find the solutions that our waking consciousness craves.
