Let's say you can increase your chances of having lucid dreams by employing certain methods. Some people at the expert level describe their practice as being so good that they feel like they can have lucid dreams at will.

It is also true, however, that involuntary experiences occur - even to those who are unfamiliar to the lucid dreaming phenomenon. You can also happen upon a lucid dream after reading about it.

I wouldn't describe lucid dreaming as an overall "random" phenomenon though. You can basically attempt to eventuate certain brain states that give rise to dream consciousness, and, sometimes, the brain stumbles upon such states all on its own.

For some it may happen randomly... but for most, they need to work at it.
