Can you control your dreams?

This seemed as good a section as any for this..

Can anyone else control what happens in their dreams? I can change mine if I'm not enjoying them, or wake myself up to end them, and also go back into them and carry on if I go back to sleep quickly.

Only musing because I was having a pretty creepy one last night and can remember thinking 'right, that's enough of that' and waking myself up, then 'choosing' a different dream as I fell back to sleep.

If only I had such useful skills whilst awake Grin

Yeah, this is lucid dreaming, I heard about it as a teenager, bought a couple of books on it and taught myself how to do it.

I'm out of practice now but it is fun. Lots of flying around and it can feel very real and safe.

Yes I can. Have posted it before. I can step in, control them, pause them, wake up, go back to sleep, press play, change them, suit them to my outcome. I never find real gold, but I see things in a different light, and can multiple orgasm, over and over in the summer nights. Never Winter.

It makes me more creative. But the downside is it makes me more insular. I can divine water, can withstand electric shocks, but when I co trial my dreams I get the most massive migraines and can't do my work.

Control, not co trial.

It's getting worse in recent years. I feel I am slipping away.

I can’t do this no matter how much I try. Even when I know I’m dreaming and someone is after me- I’ll try to defend myself or say ok, I’m dreaming, it’s my dream I’m in charge etc. It still doesn’t work out.

Husband can tho, he can choose what he dreams and is always the controller of it

Yes I can do it. Discovered it when I was a child. Isn’t it called lucid dreaming? (I may have made that up)
