I'm dreaming that I am falling asleep and becoming lucid. When I had put myself to rest, the weird hypnagogic feelings rush over me, and when I opened my eyes the dreamscape (which was my living room) was sharp and vivid. I walked over to the window, calm and tranquil and looked to a massive storm outside the window. I wanted to try to manipulate the weather, so in the dream I said: "I demand sun!" a few times, but eventually only a few sunbeams mixed itself through the storm. Afterwards, I had the rather odd idea of making the world even more vivid, by shouting: "Clarity now!" and it for an instant became blurred, but returned to sharp once more. Then, I fell out of the dream.
I'm rather confused. The dream within a lucid dream felt like I was lucid. The details were sharp, and the dreamscape was vivid - yet, I feel like I was all dreaming about a lucid dream.
Any help with figuring out would be appreciated. Do you think I were lucid dreaming, or was it just a dream about me lucid dreaming? Thanks in advance!

In some ways I did. The dreamscape were very clear, and the dream responded to my commands (not in the way I wanted them to, but they did respond when I demanded). To me, I believe it was a lucid dream. I just wasn't coincious enough, and did not stabilize the dream enough.
I think you were semi-lucid or almost lucid. All your actions seem to come from a subconscious, pre-rehearsed plan. If you realized, 'hey wait a minute, I can do what I want' and then make decisions from there it would be a higher level of lucidity.
Just my thought. I get dreams like that too, where I am half-way, and that's how I rationalize it to myself too! But I never consider it a failed lucid dream, but a fun experience that comes with the territory and worth remembering!
