Ok if I know I'm dreaming I can control what happens in my dream. Lets says for example I'm dreaming I'm on an edge of a cliff and there is no way to escape what ever is after, well if I realize that I'm dreaming I just think that since its my dream it would only be fair that I had wings and could fly away. Can anyone else do this or am I just weird like that?

I have controlled the sexual part in my dream as well I was in a shower with a man and another joined and it was a awesome time my way of making sense of it is in real life I won't allow myself to be that open to sexual experiences in my dreams I go wild....

i used to have a recurring nightmare when i was very young, about everything being alive. eg the pillows were alive and so were the paintings on my wall, but after having the nightmare for about two weeks every night, i started to realise i was dreaming as it was happening.
for a few days this was great as like you i could control my own nightmare. but beware!! after about a week of this happening constantly my nightmare evolved into a state where i knew i was dreaming, but could no longer control the dream, but worse than that i was also trapped in this dream unable to wake up.
anyway i grew out of it eventually but i do still sometimes know when i am dreaming, but thankfully this thought usually wakes me up now.

It's called Lucid Dreaming. Very few people realize they are dreaming, and even fewer are able to control them. I worked very hard to psychologically prepare myself to Lucid Dream. I can do it too now, and it's awesome. I especially love flying dreams.Hard to exaplain, but enjoy it. I love dreaming.

I also have dreams like that. A lot of people say that you can't control your dreams which actually confused me. I remember there was one dream where I can levitate objects and fly. It was really fun.

There was another when I had to fight off these demons with random powers I instantly wished for. Awesomely epic.

The thing is. I can also control whether I want to have dreams or not. Say for instance. I didn't want a dream because I was sure I would have nightmare (from watching some horror movies). I would just instantly close my eyes and in the blink of in eye I wake up to find myself in the morning. Would that be normal?...

Lucid Dreaming. Perfectly normal.
I've never been able to do it myself. Unfortunately.

yeah.... i used to be able to do it a lot when i was younger. i can still do it sometimes.
Comment Hidden (show)
Yeah, I do that too sometimes. It seems like it usually happens towards the end of dream when I am about to wake up. Sometimes when I am woken up during a good dream I can fall back asleep and jump right back into the dream where I left off. Usually, then I can control what happens.
Comment Hidden (show)
Well believe it or not, I am able to control my dreams and I can also dream about what I want. When I lay down to go to sleep all I have to do is say over and over again what I want to dream about. At the same time I have a picture in my mind of the dream. Slowly I can slip into my subject dream and control most of what happens. While dreaming I am also aware of my surroundings. I can hear the tv (if its on), I can feel my pillows, and I can feel my body both in the dream and out. It is so strange but it is fun. The problem is I am so tired the next day. If there is anyone out there that has this experience. Please respond. I would like to know, why and how I am able to do this.

@: Norever
The poll creator is an idiot hopefully you don't believe in astral projection. But I have had the same experience after I started meditation. It sounds like you are talking about going directly from being awake to rem sleep without losing consciousness this is an amazing experience you should be grateful you could do this do easily it took me weeks of effort to achieve this being aware of your surroundings outside of the dream is completely normal it is called dream incorporation most all people have had this experience usually with an auditory stimulus but it can happen with any of your senses it is also possible to being conscious during non rem sleep I took a class on buddhism and my prof said that the Buddha had achieved something called Buddha nature or consciousness or something where he never lost consciousness and was fully aware 24 7

@: Norever
i've been doing research on stuff like this and what you are doing is called astral projection....it takes alot of mediation/control over your own mind....be careful about what you do though because some people believe what you do when you astrally project yourself can affect real life
Comment Hidden (show)
LOL! I can sometimes control my dreams and there are 3 ways. The first way is that I'm in a dream that everyone is in my house and partying, and I want to get away because they are going to see my journal. Then I say in my dream, "HEY PPL I AM DREAMING! GOODBYE HAHA NOW YOU CAN'T SEE MY JOURNAL!!" and I wake up on a fresh Sunday morning and I laugh about it. That actually happened before lots of times! The second way is that I dreamed that I got to a magical land and I had this weird thing on, and when I just imagined it off, it was off and that was terrible lol! (Because I had nothing on after that...it was so weird) And then the last way is the best because I get to do anything when I notice that I'm in a dream. The one I most remember is when I saw this dream about that Disney princess Jasmine visiting this little boy, who was king, and changes the weather depending on his mood. And in that dream I was that king, but I was queen since I'm a girl, and when I got happy, I sprouted flowers in the ground, then I got mad because I saw my archenemy appear, then the ground cracked apart and she fell through the crack!!!
I laughed so hard that I woke up and it was AWESOME!
(SORRY THIS WAS REALLY LONG I TYPED A LOT I WAS EXCITED)

I can't control what I do, but I can control the environment. If I'm having a bad dream, (say im being attacked) in my dream I'll tell myself "just go to another place/room" and suddenly I'll be somewhere else. If, say I have a dream where a close relative dies (one a had a few nights ago) I'll be like WAKE UP! and I'll force myself to wake up.

This is called Lucid Dreaming I believe.

I LOVE being able to control my dreams! I remember when I was young my mom used to ask me if I could control my dreams and I longed to be able to control my sleeping mind and one night it just started to happen, i still remember the dream and everything. Have u every heard of IDosing? It's basically sounds that alter/open ur mind to different things, well there's one session u can listen to called 'Lucid Dream'. So I tried it one night after years of being able to control my dreams and that night I had a dream where I knew I was dreaming and I was walking down a long long hallway with open doors on both sides and inside the doors were all different dreams that I've had or all different settings that I've fantasied about. It was an amazing experience...Lucid dreaming is great! ^^

That kind of dreaming is something I'm working on, but it's kinda hard for me, I have some things going on in my life that dominate every dream and turn them into a nightmare of some sort, which I can never controll because my mind is too violent psychotic and twisted when it comes to scary, gorey things x).

one time i had a dream that i needed to cross a softball feild in order to get away from these peopele that were trying to hurt me. but i had a hard time walking and climbing hills. i felt so heavy and tired in my dream. at one point i was trying to get myself back up but everytime i did i fell right back down to the ground. i wonder if i was lucid dreaming...

You were close. Any time you are moving in your dreams you are in control. Just remember how you feel in real life apply that in your dream. Remember physics of real life. Straight up know what's possible.

This is actually a true sign of genius, in my opinion. Not many people realize they have control over dreams. It's amazing when people who can do this learn to do the same in waking life...

So in one sense it is normal because it is a talent we all have; but on the other hand it is not "normal" because very few people realize their true potential.

Yes I beloved it is normal not everyone to do it only some people can.I know someone who had a dream and she was driving in the mountains with someone. And she can see everything everything was in great detail. And She was in the passenger seat and someone else is driving and it was a man but she couldn't see his face. it was covered with a really dark shadow. And guess what!! Two Years later, She got married and she drove up in the mountains with her husband. she's driving up the same street she was in her dream and she saw everything that use on a dream. it was even the same truck! And she told him" I've seen this place to befor in a dream and I was with you Except I can see your face." He didnt believe her but it was true and that's weird. But anyways yes its normal

I dream every single night and every once in a while I have a lucid dream. They can end up in three ways:

1: I change the dream into a sex dream
2: I make myself fly
3: I don't wanna dream anymore, so I want to wake up.

1 and 2 are great! I just do whatever I feel like, but number 3 is a problem because I cannot do it, I tried killing myself in the dream but I always stay alive. Usually I end up waking up in my room, but it's another dream. This can happen on and on. Sometimes I think that I actually woke up, but when I doubt it , it means I'm still dreaming.

Don't run from the next time you have a nightmare remember that you want to stand there. Then just make it stop get mad instead of running. Engage fight over flight

I do it all the time. My mind produces the setting. I have control of my body. It matches my skills in the real world. The only difference is if it gets to intense I just kill the dream change the channel. Most of the time my mind dreams about the same things. It's always the mos screwed up things but I love it because I like the challenge. Zombies in your hometown or large objects destroying things around you it's awesome. The best part is if you want you can make your dreams clear make sense and be like watching tv. In my case I can't tell the difference between real life and sleep sometimes. I used to have nightmares. I enjoy nightmares. My best inspirations and ideas for art come from those. Normally the world is ending. It's always some crazy thing. What's cool is when it has plot

im the same, every week i dream the same day, and can control them, and to fly i dont grow wings, i just fly without them, i find it so wierd, but when this girl that i love comes in, i cant do any of this, and i wonder why i cant?

your brain is telling you that you can do many great things and control many things in your life, but you cannot control someone else and you definitely can't make someone else love you. i think that might be why...

Because your subconscious knows it can't control that.

I can do it sometimes, but sometimes not to my will

like last night, i was dreaming and i had a feeling something bad was going to happen, and then a bunch of bats came and shrouded my friend.
Comment Hidden (show)
wow im so glad i read your story. :)
i had no clue that other people had this problem that i have lived with for the majority of my life. Except on some nights when i am not even in the dream... some nights it just plays like a movie.. and its very scary... because it is always some sort of disaster. i hate these dreams and i never speak of them to anyone. sometimes it is a dejavu moment where bits of my dream happen in real life at different times, sometimes weeks later.
But i have noticed that when i have a dream where i AM in it... i literally HAVE to control what happens.. especially in nightmares.
For example... i have this recurring dream where i am walking the halls at a school... the doors are only 2D so its like they are painted on the walls, i cannot leave the hallway... i can only go straight.. While walking, this girl comes up to me... she has the most blank expression, its a bit scary. and she walks up to me and slowly presses against my chest.. and she keeps pressing and pressing.. until i can quite literally FEEL the pain of my diaphragm compressing so tight.. and she whispers something but i have never been able to know what she said..
But i learned soon that if i moved out of the way in my dream... i wouldnt be hurt by that strange girl.. but she is angry about it when this happens, she screams at me once and then i usually wake up and cant go back to sleep.

I sometimes wonder if this dream means anything.. it doesnt always happen of course, it did happen back in december for nearly 2 weeks every night. it usually doesnt run like a marathon like it did back in Dec, i get this dream every once in a while only. Its less and less lately.

Durring nightmares, i am in complete control. the scariest thing in the world in my oppinion... if i dont move, i will be crushed or burnt or god knows what. Its like a video game... all of my surroundings are pre-planned... not by me, or possibly subconsciously.. but they are so real, and whats more i am real. its very interactive.

....hmmm long and off topic..
Well anyway thanks for not being afraid to tell your story... it helped me feel a bit less unusual.
take care.

As everyone else has said, lucid dreaming. Some people really enjoy this. Some people never get it, some people on every once in a great while (like me, and I love dreams like that), and others can dream like that every night. You're pretty lucky. It reminds me of having two lives, but one is limitless. =D

I can control myself in my dreams, as long as I know I am dreaming. Sometimes in nightmares, I will realize I am dreaming, and change the nightmare-causer into something else, or wake myself up. For example, if I dream that I see a bear (which always ends badly in my dreams) I usually realize I'm asleep and I change the bear into either a plastic bag (it's always a plastic bag) or get rid if it completely. I can also just completely kill that dream and dream of something completely different. I guess some people can, some can't.

I think everyone can control their dreams somewhat. I can usually control everything that happens in my dreams. I sometimes cant but in my dream I know that I am dreaming, I just can't control them all the time. Don't you wish life could be that way and you could control everything that happens....lol I would want to control myself into being rich lmao.
Comment Hidden (show)
I can do that as well. For me, it comes as a result of feeling helpless during years and years of nightmares as a child.

Eventually, I learned to realize I was having a nightmare and stop whatever was going to happen. Eventually, I was able to hone my skills and turn my dreams in new directions, turning a nightmare into something that no longer scares me, or as it happens, turning any dream at almost any point into a sexual encounter :)

I cannot do it every night, and don't even remember my dreams a lot of the time, so it's hard to say what I did or did not do there.

Some people who have this gift can actually use it to their benefit in real life. You can practice memorization, practice talking in front of a crowd, practice communicating or interacting with the opposite sex in any way you want--without risking your dignity or the respect other people give you in real life.

Everyone can do this. There have been countless books written to teach you exactly how can do it. I do it all the time.

That would be lucid dreaming and dream control (someone's probably already mentioned that though).

While not too common, it is completely normal. I've been able to control my dreams a few times before, and those are the ones that are very memorable (even years later). Plus it's really fun to be able to do whatever you want in your dream world with no consequences (just be sure you're truly asleep before trying to fly, lol).

Yeah it's normal, but if I dream I'm on the side of a bilding I just fall man.

What if you start dreaming that you left your body and your walking around in your room (while dreaming) and you can't find your body...

and better yet, They think your dead so they put your body somewhere else. Good luck finding it now...

Ever since I'e only veiwed my dreams from a third-person angle, meaning that I don't actually insert myself into them(I take myself out once the dream starts.)

plus whenever I start to realize its a dream, it becomes all faded and hard to follow... and in two dreams I've had, in my dream the tiredness got to me for some reason... it was a nightmare and I was trying to run, but there was just this heavy, HEAVY weight on me and I couldnt keep my eyes open or move or ANYTHING at this point in the dream... does that tell me something, or is it just my mind connecting the fact that I was super tired and put that in my dream...

Yeah, that happened to me as a kid sometimes. I couldn't really control when it would happen though. However when I took an interest in lucid dreaming as a teenager I was able to induce it a couple times.

Ooo if I'd control my dreams that'd be really weird and inaccurate. I just let my dreams go with the flow ;p

I experience it a lot and I enjoy controlling them most of the time because it helps me remember the good bits and remember the things I want to happen in real life

This happen to me once. I was dreaming i was at a bar by myself and I all of a sudden realized I was dreaming. Everyone in the bar stopped talking and turned around and looked at me. (this was years and years before the movie inception came out by the way) so what happened was i ended up saying holy shit, i can become spawn, and i became spawn, everyone ran and i flew out of the bar into the street and started to destroy the city for the hell of it.

All my friends have dreams that they control but I'm trapped in hell in all my dreams... I can't and I try to control them. But once when I was dreaming I was in prison and my cell mate was a killer I kinda started having a seizure and I woke up upside down and panting. So I guess from my friends this is normal. But I can't do s*** .

I have lucid dreamed like 50 times in my life but I have only controlled about three because I didn't know how cause I hadn't researched it. Best one ever, I was in a nighmare, some scary marsh/swamp and I see a goul thing across a lake then u thought to myself "that looks like my friend spencer" then it turned into spencer and then I'm like holy crap in dreaming so First I imagined a two story house and bam! It appeared then I imagined a bed bit strangely it was I Minecraft bed, then as I was going to make a good lookin lady I woke up. FMyLife.

I think it can be normal. For me when I dream, I can put it on "pause" then start it back up. Generally I do this when I have to go to the bathroom at night. I also have weird dreams that tell the future sometimes. It's not often, and most of the time I don't realize it, until it is happening.

It's called lucid dreaming my amigo. Totally normal.

I can sort of do the same, but in a negative way.. I always have a dream in which I'm running and trying to hide from a giant caterpillar.

An example; I'll be hiding from it behind a tree, and I'll have to fight the urge to THINK it knows where I am. Because as soon as i think that, it happens..

Goddamn. Trust me, it's some scary shit.

Being able to control your dreams is completely normal. Lucid dreaming can sometimes be triggered by accident when your dream is so weird that it makes you think, "Whoa, THAT can't be real! I must be dreaming!" I have this happen when I've eaten foods that typically bring on weird and vivid dreams. In particular, cheese before bedtime is often a trigger for me.

This is called Lucid Dreaming, and it's really quite awesome. Many people have to train themself to learn how to lucid dream. You are very lucky that you already know how to do that.

Often times, I realize that I'm dreaming, only to wake up after that. Sometimes though, I stay asleep and I can control my dreams.

Sometimes i sleep with cartoons on so i can dream about being in that episode or be on the same adventure as them

I do that too. One time I was having a nightmare of some sort. I don't remember what it was in details. But I remember suddenly facing the person responsible and saying: Get out of my dream! My dream, my rules! And just like that the problem dissapeared.
Had other dreams, where I changed the unchangeable, just cause it's my dream!

It's nice. After all, it's my head on the line! I should have control over what's going on!

Completely normal. This is called "Lucid Dreaming". It's when you know your in a dream. You then can completely change what the dream is about even if it is a Nightmare! It did happen to me a lot in the past days I usually have it 3 times every week, while other people have them only once in their whole life. But beware, this may lead to Sleep Paralysis which is a phenomenon where you feel like your in bead, you can't move your body, not even your head. Then sometimes shadowy figures approach you. This scared the crap out of me! One time a man ran into my room and looked at me with white eyes! I woke up screaming and knew this was Sleep Paralysis.

You are Divergent. You threaten the system by practicing your own independent will. Divergent's threaten that system and need to be stopped.

not everyone can do it this is the main problem for people having Lucid Dream that they cannot change the situation and if they do it they come out of dream But if you can do it consider yourself lucky

yeep! u can lucid ur dreams

I have lucid dreams too but after reading the info on how to take control and the things you can do when influencing your dreams I got kinda freaked out, the possibilities are just too far out there for me... I prefer to just let my dreams play out like I'm watching a movie, one of the benefits of my lucid dreams though is that even if I wake up for a few mins I just need to think back onto my dream, fall asleep, and I can continue where I left off :)

You're having a "lucid dream." The majority of people experience this, and you can actually train yourself to have them. Look it up, it's kind of fun. Ways to train yourself include dream journaling and giving yourslef frequent "reality checks" throughout the day. Anything to make yourself more conscious of your dream life.

I find that stressful dreams tend to become lucid a lot. In a stressful situation, you're more likely to ask "am I dreaming?" And that's enough to trigger lucidity.

Happens to me all the time. Do you play video games? They say that people that play video games have a 30 to 40% chance of being a lucid dreamer. :) I find it highly useful when I do it. I don't have nightmares anymore!

I love it when I can control my dreams
Comment Hidden (show)
Yeah, its normal. I used to do this all the time. I got to the point where I would cry when I woke up. lol. I'm in college now so I don't really do it anymore ( maybe I forgot how to) but whenever I can't sleep I picture a scenario in my mind and if it changes in anyway with my permission I knew I was dreaming.

Nobody can control their dreams. This is a trick of the mind and memory. What you are doing there is dreaming that you can control your dreams. Also how do you differentiate between dream state and reality? Are 'you' there watching yourself dream when you falsely remember that you can control your dreams. I suppose you could say that dreams are easy to recognize because you can fly an stuff. I have a constant dream that i work in an office, go home to a flat, watch TV and sleep. It's as real as real life. I'm not sure which is which sometimes such is the lucidity of this dream. Which is 'reality'? Also while along the lines of this inquiry you should also try to answer these questions: Who is the dreamer? and Where is the dreamworld?

Maybe you're not actually asleep? Maybe you're dozing? Like half asleep half awake? Either that or this is pretty cool if you can control your dreams! I've only ever had sleep paralysis and thats scary :(

Happens to me all the time. Sometimes I'll actually rewind and redo parts of dreams cause I didn't think I got it right the first time.
