Answer : Most people say you cant comrol your dreams but you actually can you can write the dream down on a peice of paper but make it full detail....Put the paper under your pellow and then when you go to sleep you're dream is mostly likely for you to have it trust me ive did it!!!!!

Sometimes, you can in a way. If you go to sleep thinking about a movie or thinking about something really scary or sad, you will more than likely have a nightmare that night or the next. Then again have your parents ever told you to think about something happy when you disturb their sleep at midnight because you had a bad dream? Not every one can control their dreams. I know that sometimes, if you try hard, you can dream about one thing, like a girl I know watched Twlight 5 times, and said she went to bed thinking about it. Of course, she dreamt she got marrried to Edward. Sorry, Stephanie :( Not gonna happen! lol.


This is a type of dream called Lucid Dreaming. Lucid Dreaming is when, like you said it, control your own dreams. Like the first answer, that is one way to do it, but another way is when you tell yourself (While you're in a dream!) that you know you're dreaming. This is hard because most people are carried away in their dream and they don't know that they are doing it. This will take time and practice but trust me, soon you will be able to control your own dreams easily. Out of nowhere, when I was 8 years old, I started Lucid Dreaming, but I really didn't know what I was doing. I just thought of something and, poof! There it is, right in my dream. When you finally get the hang of Lucid Dreaming, it turns out to be really fun, but sometimes it doesn't go the way you expect.

Hope I helped!

How can you control your dreams?

As soon as you become aware that you are dreaming you can start controlling the dream. All you have to do is imagine different situations or people you want to see. However, you wont be able to control everything, your subconsious will just have to share with you. The biggest problem is trying not to wake up as soon as you realize youre dreaming though.Dreams are products of the subconscious mind, whereas the intention to control rises from the conscious, waking mind. Consequently, it is not only difficult to exert "control" over dreams, but any dreams that become "lucid" or consciously controlled, are no longer authentic dreams but something more like imaginings or daydreams.

How to control your dreams?

Controlling dreams is neither natural nor easy. Dreams are produced by the unconscious mind while the conscious (aware) mind rests in sleep. The desire to control dreams is an expression of the conscious mind; the unconscious mind is not particularly responsive to what the conscious mind thinks it should do. Moreover, forcing the conscious mind to actively interfere with dreams deprives the mind of the necessary rest of natural sleep.

No, there is no machine that can control your dreams. Such devices are science fiction. If you are thinking about the film "Inception," follow the link below for more comments.

If you stress your brain into thinking about a boy you like or even your favorite color you will dream about something like kissing that boy or being trapped in a purple room for 8 years.
