Controlling Your Dreams

I've been able to control my dreams in some sense from a very young age. From about the age of 7 I found it very difficult to sleep because I was always anxious about something. Whether it be like getting worried the house would set on fire, to something extreme like worrying a meteorite was going to crash down on to my house. I can always remember lying there in my bed just looking between the gap in my curtains wondering what could happen. Because of this, it gave me very strange and scary dreams. My very first scary dream I can remember was being eaten by a giant Venus fly trap (I was only 7 so this was very scary back then!), and then they just got worse from then, ranging from getting chased my animals and humans, to getting crushed by building. They got pretty bad. So this is where the controlling of the dreams comes in.

My very first time I can remember influencing a dream was when I was about 7. I was having a dream where I was in this very tall hotel, and there was a swimming pool on the roof. A couple of people I was with (No idea who they were) convinced me to jump into the pool, even though I fully new in the dream I couldn’t swim, but I did anyway! I was trying to swim but my arms and legs were going limp and weak so I wasn’t getting anywhere, so in the dream I told myself to stop swimming. The reason I did this was because I knew if I stopped swimming, I would just drown and then I’d wake up. So I did this, and no doubt, I woke up! This seemed too real to me, and I was sure it was me telling myself to do it. 

As time went on, I was still having scary dreams, but over time I started to try and wake myself up to just get out of it, and I can still do this now. If I ever find myself in a bad/scary situation in a dream, I would make my body tense up so much it would some how wake me up, and I can tell you, it has never failed me. I carried on doing this until my scary dreams stopped, which was when I was about 12.

Like I said, I can still wake myself up now in my dreams, for example, I actually did it this morning. I found it difficult to sleep last night because of the heat so I was exhausted this morning, so I have been drifting in and out of sleep till about half 10. I was having this very strange dream (I had a micro baby somehow and I was trying to break the news to the in-laws, very freaky!) but I suddenly remembered I was expecting a delivery any time in the morning so I woke myself up.

Studying dreams is something I would love to do, as I really want to learn more about why we have certain dreams and how people actually control them.

Can anyone else control there dreams? Or does anyone else study dreams? This is a very weird post but it’s something I really wanted to share because I find it so interesting, but also because there are a lot of people who don’t believe me either.

Let me know in the comments your thoughts!

  2. Hi,

    I actually can create my dreams. I usually have 3 dreams a night. The first one as I fall asleep, one in the early morning and a last one near the time that I wake up. The middle dream is the only one that I have little control over, I can wake myself from a nightmare but other than that it's out of my control. I often dreamt about movies that I watched or books that I had read. I always loved to go to sleep because I could do whatever I wanted: fly, swim, fight pirates, anything!!

    A lot of people never believed me. But after a while they noticed how imaginative and awesome my dreams were. They are never boring.
