Welcome to Mortal Mist, home to a growing multi-national online community dedicated to exploring and promoting the practice and art of Lucid Dreaming.
Lucid dreaming is the common term used by those involved in developing awareness that they are dreaming and exercising control over their dreams. Aware Dreaming, Conscious Dreaming or Dream Control might be more accurate descriptions.
A lucid dream happens when you become aware you are dreaming while remaining in the dream. While lucid dreaming it is possible to control your own actions and thoughts, just as when you are awake—but it is also possible to control your environment and other characters in your dreams. Nothing is impossible in a lucid dream, as the laws of reality and nature only apply if you believe they do.
Lucid Dreaming can be used for self-exploration, experiencing fantasies, and for accessing a state of consciousness where anything you can imagine becomes possible. Depending on your level of self-awareness, lucid dreams can be extremely realistic and more vivid than real life.
Lucid dreaming has been researched, and the reality of the experience is well established. Scientists, such as Dr. Stephen LaBerge in his seminal work "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming," have greatly contributed to the growing understanding and popularity of this amazing experience.
