A Pink Elephant
I have called this 'A Pink Elephant' because I was of course dreaming a vivid, colorful dream of a forest filled with unusual foliage and trees. The colors were so magnificent that I began to focus on them because of their beauty. It was of course surreal. Then, all of a sudden a pink elephant came meandering through the forest. That is when the realization came to me that I was in the midst of a lucid dream. The key things I think that helped me enter into this lucid dream state were of course an awareness of lucid dreams; a focus on specific things that attracted me in the dream environment; and something so unusual (pink elephant) that it triggered the knowledge of what was happening. Unfortunately I became so excited that I came out of the state.
