Lucid dream or just dream?

I checked in a dream if I was actually dreaming, and was surprised it actually worked. My mind told me I was dreaming. But from there, it still felt like the dream was running itself! None of the things I tried to do worked, but I wasnt putting in the commands. This has happened to me twice. Is it actually my first lucid dream and I don't know it, or it just another dream?

I believe we define lucid dreaming as knowing we are dreaming, not necessarily having full control just yet. How vivid was the dream? From what I have heard, lucid dreams are vivid.

Engineering student,
You're already on one of the best sites for learning. Also go to wikihow/how to lucid dream. The biggest thing you need to do first is get a note book or some type of recorder. No matter how mundane the dream seems, WRITE IT DOWN! My wife has tried for years just to remember hers, once she began keeping a journal, she not only remembers them but they are getting more vivid.

It may take a few tries but take small steps. Begin by just taking in your surrounds, even if this means standing there. As you get used to lucid dreaming and exploring, making changes will become easier.
