Is it still considered ‘lucid dreaming’ if it is one step removed from the actual sleeper?

Lucid dreaming is common and I do it a lot. But recently I’ve begun dreaming — that I’m having lucid dreams (if that makes sense). The ‘focal person’ of my dream — the dream ‘me’ — is asleep and having a lucid dream which they (not me) are controlling. So, is that still lucid dreaming?
I tried for ‘Dream Interpretation’ but YA wanted Psychology — oh, well!

The only way I have found to rid myself of these particular dreams is through ‘prayer’.
Prayer works! 😀

With lucid dreaming that’s a very real possibility, but before being able to control your dreams you have to be able to recognize that you are dreaming. Once you are aware you are dreaming you can alter your dreams and dictate what happens: you can do anything you’ve ever wanted, go anywhere… Read more »

I believe it is. A lucid dream is a dream in which the sleeper is aware that he or she is dreaming. When the dreamer is lucid, he or she can actively participate in and often manipulate the imaginary experiences in the dream environment. Lucid dreams can seem extremely real and vivid depending on a person’s level of self-awareness during the lucid dream. A lucid dream can begin in one of three ways. A dream-initiated lucid dream (DILD) starts as a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes that he or she is dreaming, while a wake-initiated lucid dream (WILD)… Read more »
