Dreams make the impossible, possible. Imagine controlling what happens in a dream. Imagine having abilities that are completely out of this world. The events that go on during dreams seem to be coming straight out of cartoons and fictional movies. Lucid dreaming is the process of realizing one is in a dream state and being able to control the dream and the events that take place. Many lucid dreamers have different techniques to enter a lucid state while dreaming. Some use reality checks such as counting how many fingers are on a hand, or checking the time consistently. During a dream, a hand will have a couple fingers too many. Time seems to be a myth during dreams and often times clocks will be spinning out of control. Another popular technique to induce lucid dreaming is for the person to state that they will have a lucid dream, before they go to bed. Lucid dreaming is used for many other things other than just pure entertainment, some use lucid dreaming as insight on many of life’s problems. Lucid dreaming can create entire worlds for someone to explore and grant abilities that can take you on adventures of a lifetime. Dreams don’t have to be so exciting and intense if one does not choose to make it so, lucid dreaming could also mean a quiet reading time in the woods surrounded by animals or just floating around in the clouds. The possibilities are endless when one induces lucid dreaming.
