Lucid Dreaming: How to Control Your Dreams
A lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik (Willem) van Eeden (1860–1932). In a lucid dream, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over their participation within the dream or be able to manipulate their imaginary experiences in the dream environment. Lucid dreams can be realistic and vivid.

Lucid dreaming has been researched scientifically, and its existence is well established. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
