Why Lucid Mind as a name for this webpage and what does it really mean? Good questions. The powers of the mind is the main topic of this Web Site together with finding effective ways and techniques for helping people become aware of these powers within them.
The definitions of the word LUCID (see below) and the concept of Lucid Dreaming inspired me. During a lucid dream the dreamer becomes consciously aware that he is dreaming – we say he becomes lucid.
If he can hold on to this awareness without waking up he gains the ability to take conscious action within the dream world. Some people have the ability to turn a Lucid Dream into an Out of Body Experience.
Well, a Lucid Mind does the same, except not in a dream, but in the conscious reality as a human being. He takes conscious awareness and responsibility of all the thoughts he has, the choices and decisions he takes and the actions leading from this.

Why using the words ‘Lucid Mind’ then?
Applying the definitions from the dictionary above, a person with a lucid mind has become cristal clear about who and what he is in this human experience. He becomes a leader, a shining light, helping others to find their own way and light within them.
There is nothing mysterious or mystical about a Lucid Mind. He has gone beyond the madness of humanity and has with logic and reason discovered who he really is. He has accepted that although he is not the creator of Life, he has the Creative Power of Life within him and therefore co-creates with his Creator.
A Lucid Mind is completely aware of his power and directs its power towards only one goal – the experience of true love, peace and joy. This is only possible if every Living Being is included within this goal there are no exclusions.
In the context I am using the word lucid is probably most similar to the words enlightened or illuminated, or even awakened. But these words lean strongly towards traditional spiritual and religious practices, which I did not want to confuse you with in this Web Site.
Although we are aiming at the same goal which is discovering who we really are and living a fullfilled, happy life, the paths suggested here are not strictly traditional, spiritual nor religious.
Therefore I used the word lucid. Well and the word mind, because it is the power of the mind which makes it all possible in the first place.
