This might get buried in all of the other comments, but i still feel the need to share. I had a lucid dream a few weeks back for the first time in about 12 years (I’m 24 now). I don’t keep a dream journal and barely even remember most of my dreams.

I don’t know if it was because I was so sleep deprived (I was on vacation in China, and it was my first night away alone), but for some reason I was able to pick up on the fact that I was dreaming. (I was walking the streets in Shanghai with my friends, who I knew just left, also I had just fallen asleep in my hotel bed in Luoyang).

My question is: how common are lucid dreams for those who don’t know about or pursue them?

I never really tried doing it after it happened to me as a kid (just flew around and thought it was cool), but now I’m much more interested in the the idea of doing it again.
