Lucid dreaming according to popular definition is the ability to recognize you are in a dream and then controlling it. It is commonly done by accident when many people dream, and is easily achieved through some practice and planning. It can be used to overcome emotional issues and irrational fears as well as just be a playground for the human imagination. It is very common and easy to achieve in under two weeks. On a personal note; i tried it from a skeptical viewpoint and was able to achieve lucid dreams within the week.

The ability to share dreams with others however has been proven impossible through numerous studies and controlled testing.

Even though i'm pretty sure this is the guy above me just commenting as an anon because he can't log in like a man and say it, i'm willing to provide further information   
   
The textbook definition according to Wikipedia is:   
"A lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming"   
   
There have been multiple systems developed to encourage lucid dreaming such as special goggles, medicines, alarm clocks, and basic routines. Aside from countless people claiming they can, there are tests where the brain functions can be monitored to prove that people are not only dreaming, but are lucid dreaming. They are eve able to confirm with machines that the person has been dreaming of specific items or situations.   
   
The only skeptical claims that it doesn't exist comes from people who say that there is no way to measure it, which has been altered, and that people can not recall dreams once they have had them, which we know to be very difficult but still possible.

In which I realized I was dreaming and controlled my actions. I woke up when I started panicking when I started flying because I didn't want to wake up. Although I see what your saying, because I guess I just could have had a dream about realizing I'm dreaming. Fuck man, your messing with my head.
