So You Want To Control Your Dreams?

February 3, 2014 on 6:37 am | In Lucid Dreams | No Comments

OK, we all dream whether we realize it or not. But what if you want to control your dreams? Is that something out of a science fiction movie or is it really possible to take control of the things you dream about?

Write a dream journal

Whenever you wake up, jot down the things that were contained in your most recent dream. At first this may be a struggle but just go with it and write down as much as you can remember. The more regularly you do this, the more of your dreams you’ll begin to remember and before long you’ll almost be able to write an essay about each dream. Keep a small torch next to your dream journal so that you don’t disturb your dream-like state too much if you wake up in the middle of the night.

Prime your dreams

At least some of what we dream about is related to what is going on in our life. Stuff that happened today or stuff that’s due to happen tomorrow are both quite common things to dream about. Whilst you can’t control the past or the future, you can influence your mind by putting ideas into your head just before you go to sleep, which will prime the parts of your body that create your dreams and make you more likely to dream about the stuff you’ve just watched on TV or read about on the internet. Yes, even that kind of stuff!

Regularly ask yourself if you’re dreaming

We all drift into a dream like state from time to time. During the day, unsurprisingly it’s called day dreaming. You can check whether or not you’re dreaming by simply asking yourself that question.

Or by the slightly more violent method of pinching yourself – this one is actually quite good as if you pinch yourself whilst you’re dreaming that may or may not happen in the physical world. So the jolt of pinching yourself could be the reassurance that you’re not dreaming whereas if there’s no reaction, there’s a good chance that you’re stuck in a dream somewhere.

There’s lots more to controlling your dreams than these tips but they’re a good start (and we all have to start somewhere!). When you get skilled at this level, you can find lots more ways to begin to control your dreams.
