In a lucid dream you know that you are dreaming and can do whatever you want while consciously present and know that you are in the world of imaginary illusion that looks and feels real. In a dream yoga lucid dreaming is used as a method of spirituality and a mind skill to find deep inner peace and presence inside a flowing mind of thoughts, feelings and images night and day.

Lucid dreaming is a universal skill that is not bound to any religious tradition. In Tibetan buddhist traditions lucid dreaming have been used as a meditation exercise for inner peace and joy of being for centuries.
People who meditate tends to see more spontaneous lucid dreams. This is no accident since since the stability of mind or inner calm and presence that is required in meditation is exactly the same process of self realization that happens in a lucid dream when you become conscious and present in a dream world. In a lucid dream you are no longer a victim of your subconscious thoughts, emotions and imagery but know that you are really not affected by the dream images any more because you know they are an illusion. They happen only in your mind.
This same thing happens in meditation but you are actually awake but no longer controlled by your habitual thoughts and emotional reactions but fully present and conscious of what is happening inside and outside of you. You are free and awake.
The word ‘buddha’ means the one who is awake. Dream yoga is not a physical yoga of bodily movement but the yoga of the mind. Word ‘yoga’ means literally to connect. In a yoga you connect your mind and body as an unified whole. In dream yoga you connect your wake and dream states as an unified whole.
In dream yoga lucid dreaming is used to rest in a peaceful, luminous and joyful inner presence day and night. When you find this presence you can share the calm and joy with other people and all sentient being. In this way you will become a better and more friendly and gentle person who no longer acts from primarily selfish motives but can take into account the view of others and common good in any situation. You will come spiritually more mature person.
To rest in free inner presence you will need a calm and stable mind that is practiced in meditation and lucid dreaming in dream yoga. Becoming conscious of your dream is not an easy task for many but most can achieve it in two or three weeks of intense practice.
In a dream yoga your lucid dreaming will have a more profound meaning for your life than just playing and flying in your dreams. You can still do magic and fly, no problem, but your motivation to do it is is to become a better, more benign and compassionate person towards yourself and other. You will be doing the dream practice to free yourself from all attachment and aversion to rest in a fully present and awake consciousness and in the effortless peace and joy it offers for benefit of others. This will give you a more deeper purpose for your lucid dream practice and for your life.
If you don’t have enough time to meditate and develop your mind and emotions to find deep inner peace and joy during a day, in dream yoga you can do it the whole night in your dreams!
