Definition: A lucid dream refers to one in which you know you are dreaming, while you are dreaming. Quite often, you can control the progress of such a dream, but the control does not define the lucidity. Awareness does.

It is where the dream is so real and it is carried over into waking and your mind becomes confused between what is dream and what is reality. There has been a lot of research carried out on this and other sleep disorders and mysteries.
When we go into REM, out neuron transmitters begin tapping out patterns that are carried from the part of the brain where we the creative sensors are, dreams tend to go from subconsciouse to that area (thats where all the srange elements are added to maybe a memory or a thought, like maybe you saw a scary movie one night and dreamed about it, but the scary elements may have been including someone you know….in lucid dreaming, the dream feels very real and your emotions kick in and when you wake, those emotions are still going strong as are the transmitters…so the dream is carried on right up to the second when you realize you are awake. Then the dream ceases.
Lucid dreams can be wonderful if its a good dream, kind of bring it all to life before your eyes and on the other hand if it’s a bad dream, well it can be stored away in the subconscious and filed under memories….because to the brain, you were awake for a bit therefore it is received as an actual event.

I have certainly been through dreams like that, and then when I woke up was utterly disappointed on realizing they were not real. Especially as they was so vivid, seemed so real, and were usually heavenly. I even woke up in tears over some because I had just lost the connection with someone whom I clearly loved, and vice versa. And it was interesting that one of these people was a vampire, and yet the dream was real as me sitting here and writing this now.
