    I know dreaming is supposed to involve the deep

    subconscious mind, but I wish I could understand it better. It would be nice if I had some control over it. Every dream I wake up remembering is normally so weird that I can't figure out why I dreamed it. The ones that are very normal almost always lead to dajavo several days...

    I would revisit all of my old dream spots

    and the old friends I had in those dreams. I said goodbye before I plunged into hell and I miss them. I would so dream about my other dreamworlds too like MLP and star fox and I would be a pro skater every night. I would even have a yu yu hakisho world too

    There's something like

    that called Lucid Dreaming. I don't know how to do that but since I sleep 18 hours a day I would love to just decide what to dream about

    Everyday I dream about you,

    but I don't want to. I want to forget about you! But it's kind of hard to when I get sudden reminders of you. Can someone please help me? How do I get my ex out of my dreams? I need to let go of him and let him remain a memory.

    I am able to do that every night

    and it's a little theory that I've been working on its called R.E.M.M (rapid eye movement manipulation) you finally are asleep when you get into rapid eye movement so before you fall asleep you can manipulate it

    When I am going to sleep I always think very

    much on something where I want to dream about. That´s the best way to choose the own dreams!

    If I had the ability to choose my dreams

    before I fell asleep, I would choose to relive some of the events from my childhood. Good memories, or bad. I could go back to ten years ago and have christmas at my old and most memorable home. I could go back to when my brothers and I (children at the time) would have our...

    Glad I Chose You ...!!!

    I saw you across a crowded room. Among all the others that were there, The lights seemed to shine down on you alone. I knew then I had to have you for my own. Willingly, you came with me to my home. From the car, I carried you and threw open the door. Looking...

    That would be awesome to

    not only choose what you dream about but to also have complete control of your dream if that were the case the sky would be the limit in your dreams anyway.

    I had a dream last night about a woman.

    The wife of someone I know. A woman I never really thought of before. But in the dream we were at a house party and we just sat on a couch and talked. When I woke up I remembered every word, every seductive glance and every playful touch. I wonder if it will see her differently...

    I fight my sleep night

    The Dream Buffet

    I've feel this way ever since I was a kid- wishing that I could choose my dreams (at least the general topic) before I fall asleep. There have been some occasions where lucid dreaming is possible but for whatever the reason it just isn't quite as good as picking the topic first...

    I wake up in the middle of the night with too much on my mind and can't get back to sleep.

    Honestly wish I could,

    I'd dream of them more frequently if I could, but then again. I like how my dreams are usually somewhat cryptic or of the sort so I'd just like dreams that can make me wonder about them for the next few days

    I really do wish that I could choose what to

    Dream about before I go to bed. I had a terrible and rather weird/strange nightmare, tried to go back to sleep and I wokeup to the front door being wide open.

    I sure wish I could do that.

    That way i can zone out of everything else and have a good dream that will give me a good night sleep. I don't want nightmares ruining my sleep.

    To dream a dream is to awaken your inner self.

    Your wants, your desires, your passions are given life.

    It would be like having my own free cinema in my head! Lie down in bed and pick some subjects to dream about! That might make me get to bed at a sensible time as well :p

    Lucid dreaming And individual capable of

    controlling their dreams. They say it's best if you record down your dreams. And you have to realize reality vs dreaming. So like numbers being blurry in a dream. Or write something on your hand and if you don't see it in the dream your dreaming something like that. It can be...
