How I have been learning to lucid dream and control my dreams to help in my waking life

There is no way to fully control the content of your dreams but there are a few tips to manipulate dreams to come that you’ll remember.

If, let’s say, you are trying to make a decision to stick it out or leave a job or relationship but you’re stuck, the best way to fix it is to let your subconscious help you through it.

When you’re getting ready to go to sleep try to meditate and focus on the question you’re wanting answered. Sit or lie in bed for about 5 minutes and just picture your job or your significant other and try to imagine life without them/it. After you have it ingrained in your brain, go to sleep.

It usually is enough to trigger your subconscious into playing it out. Keep a pen and paper or journal by your bed.

As soon as you wake up- either in the middle of the night or the next morning, before doing anything else, write down every detail you remember from the dream. Let the notebook sit for a bit without reading it and come back a bit later (I’d suggest at least half through the day or wait a day or two.)

Try to think as objectively as you can (or have someone else read it as well) and keep in mind that major themes are usually symbolic and not to be taken at face value (sex doesn’t mean horny or attracted normally, death doesn’t mean you’re going to die and usually pregnancy doesn’t mean you’re pregnant)

Those are the (simple) tips that have helped me solve some major life decisions through manipulating my dreams (it also helps when it triggers lucid dreaming, where you consciously control what you do)

I’ll have another blog about lucid dreaming, though.

If anyone has ever found ways to manipulate their dreams, feel free to leave a comment and let me know worked for them.

If anyone has any questions, go ahead and ask in the comments as well.

  1. Whenever I manage to realize I’m dreaming – I wake up from the dream. When I’m awake, I always try looking at text (street signs, commercials, my cell phone) twice, to make sure it stays the same. The kind of habit rolls into my dream behavior as well, though unfortunately as I wrote – once I figure it out I wake up. I keep trying, though 🙂

    1. It takes time and to me, it’s been hit and miss. I have had quite a few times I managed to finish the dream in 2 ways controlling the endings both times- it helped me with figuring out choices I was trying to make. Other times I did get woken up. You’ll figure out how to stay sleeping. 🙂
