Dreams in general are pretty fascinating topic but the magic of lucid dreaming might be one of the most awesome things our brain is capable of doing that we know of. To start with, lucid dreaming is defined as a dream during which a dreamer is aware of the fact that they are dreaming. Besides the awareness, the dreamer might be capable of taking control of the dream. Simply put, while lucid dreaming, people are able to affect and change the environment of the dream, choose people that they wish to dream as well as interactions with people, put themselves in different situations and, basically, do anything with only limit being their own imagination.
The closest I ever gotten to lucid dreaming at will was when I started to pay close attention to my thoughts. To be honest, being fully aware of your thoughts can be a bit frustrating at first and truthfully I amm still struggling with it. There is so much going on in our everyday lives that we either simply forget about our own thoughts or we suppress them because of how overwhelming they might be. The truth is, once I am able to not only be aware that I am thinking but when I take full control of my thoughts is when I realize of how easy and simple everything is. However, as a human I forget how to get into that place and the reason for forgetting is again overwhelming everyday life which leads to frustration and anxiety. Stress seems to be to blame for everything even lucid dreaming. Furthermore, while trying to lucid dram in the state of full awareness and control, I would be able to catch glimpses of my dreams. The dream would unravel in front of my eyes and I could be fully aware of it. However, these glimpses would last shortly and I would quickly be back to reality.
