Are You Awake or... Are you awake?

One of the most important things you are able to do in a lucid dream is to conquer your fears in a non-threatening state. I did this with a life-long recurring nightmare, and once I stopped running away and turned to face my "demons" and declared that my faith in God and His protection was stronger than my fears, the nightmare stopped and has not reoccured in 4 years. Remember, it is best to overcome your fears through loving kindess and understanding, not by shooting a dream assailant or being mean to someone bullying you. Everyone in your dream is really reflecting an aspect of your own Self, so to do harm to that person is to do harm to yourself! The Golden Rule applies in dreams: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The threatening demon in your dream is an aspect of yourself that you fear, and that great fear can only be overcome with love and understanding, not by violence or anger...or by running away.
There is one movie I have seen that comes closest to representing what a lucid dream experience is like, and that is WHAT DREAMS MAY COME with Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding, Jr. If you saw this movie, remember how the character of Christy wouldn't let things appear that scared him? Remember how vivid the colors were in the scenes depicting Christy's heaven, and how dark and horrifiying the scenes of hell were--but they were explained as illusions? This movie is a wonderful example of the belief that we are closest to our true Spiritual Self in the dream world, similar to the experience of death. Remember how Christy learned he could walk on water and fly? He had to believe it first, before he could perform those feats. Lucid dreams are like that; if one becomes lucid and wants to experience flying, they first have to believe it is possible, then that they are capable of doing it, and then try it. I remember vividly how odd it was to fly through the air in a dream, because there was no wind noise as you would have if you were physically moving...because, of course, it is not your physical body moving in the dream. It was an indescribable feeling.
Anyone can learn to lucid dream, and some people are naturally more prone to lucid dream. People with sleeping disorders or illnesses that disrupt sleep such as Fibromyalgia, C.F.I.D.S./M.E., or Narcolepsy may have a predispostion to remembering more of their dreams, having more nightmares, lucid dreaming, and experiencing a sleeping disorder called "Sleep Paralysis," because their malady or pain prevents a deeper stage of sleep; therefore they are already partially awake.
