i must be dreaming

That's when the magic happens, and the dreamer is aware that he is dreaming. Anything can happen, then. You can fly like a bird, you can talk to a long-lost loved one, you can tell your boss to take this job and shove it, you can travel to beautiful lands in the blink of an eye, you can make elephants appear...the possiblities are endless.
Lucid Dreams are very is impossible to fully explain how powerful and REAL lucid dreams seem, until you actually experience one. Then it is a dream you will never likely forget! The colors are brilliant, you can feel, touch, taste, and make things happen at will. There will still be some suprises, such as what happened to a friend of mine who tried to manifest a boat on the ocean, but instead manifested a roller coaster.
Another way to describe the experience of having a lucid dream is this: the next time you are in a movie theater and get wrapped up in the story that is unfolding on the screen in front of you, imagine suddenly realizing that you were not just a spectator, but a *part* of this movie! Suddenly, the movie/dream is going on all around you, and everything is vivid and up-close. You can smell, taste, touch, see, and hear everything that is going on, and it amazes you that this "movie" you thought was just a story told via actors and props is actually really transpiring. Suddenly you are chatting up Luke Skywalker, or screaming at Rose to make room for Jack on that board in the ocean, or flying through the air like Peter Pan. Anything that you imagine becomes part of the script, and you have a blast! That is close to the concept of what having a lucid dream feels like. Sound like fun? You bet it is!
There is a fear factor to overcome, also. Once, in one of my lucid dreams, I remember apprehensively watching a nurse who was washing her hands at a sink, with her back turned towards me. I thought, "I just know when she turns around, I'll see something horrifying!" She turned around, and lo' and behold, there was just a kindly-faced woman. I thought, "But I just *knew* she would turn into something scary!?" and as if to give me what I wanted, the woman's face suddenly had an expression of, "Well, ok!" and her face transformed into a horrifying beast that lunged out at me, a la that gruesome werewolf movie. Then, just as quickly, her face returned to a normal woman's face, and she went about her business. It ended up being comical, and I learned an important lesson: Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!
I also learned that my fears were only illusions, and I don't have to let my fears rule my life...or dreams.
In lucid dreams, events will keep happening to try to coax you back into the drama, and forget you are aware. It is challenging not to fall into this trap. The trick is STAYING in the lucid dream. There are techniques given such as looking at your hands in your dream, or twirling around in a spin like a ballerina, or doing somersaults with your dream body. Concentrating on doing one of those things will prevent the surge of excitement when your adrenaline kicks in, which would pull you out of the dream and this wonderful moment would be lost while you awaken fully. It is important to learn these techniques if you want to lucid dream effectively for longer periods of time.
