It’s a psychological phenomenon that dates back to ancient Greek writings, although it wasn’t until 1913 that Dutch psychiatrist Frederik van Eeden coined the term—”lucid dream.”
A lucid dream is when the dreamer is aware of dreaming and can exert some type of control over the dream. While there is some scientific skepticism over the “wakefulness” of people experiencing dream lucidity, studies have shown that lucid dreams begin during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage of sleep, and many believe that you can teach yourself how to lucid dream.
