I learned how to control my dreams.

Author by: Matt D’Avella



  1. I have been lucid dreaming for so long. And then all of a sudden it just stopped. It started with me achieving awareness of my dreams, and then losing it seconds later. Now, I haven't had one in years…

  2. I've always wanted to lucid dream, but I've recently realized that most of my dreams aren't even visual at all, possibly because I have aphantasia. This could be why I've struggled to make any sort of progress. But hey, at least I'm remembering dreams more often now, and I'll keep on trying and see if I can get any results

  3. In some period of my life I had almost only lucid dreams. At the moment I have 50% lucid dreams and 50% regular. Also I can remember easly all my dreams but I just dont care to do it. I never did something to get in this situation, it just happened since I was a small child. Learning how to fly in my dreams was one of the most dope thing of my childhood

  4. I was obsessed with lucid dreams when I was in college, but I only ever got as far as being able to recognize I was dreaming never being able to control my dreams. Now whenever I’m dreaming I’ll occasionally ask myself is this a dream and it usually wakes me up.

  5. I often lucid dream in the morning between my alarms when I (excessively) snooze for an hour or so… or shortly before waking up

  6. I Like your videos :)))

    I prefer my dreams than my life. LOL I know is so sad. 🤦🏾‍♀️😒

  7. I have had lucid dreams and they are so enjoyable. I was also trying to master them at one point but it is a difficult task. Might pick it up again though.

  8. In my experience doing the finger through the hand is a technique for awareness and not control: I did a dream study in behavioral psychology and what I found got me into that state more than anything is to do a "flex and relaxation" technique.

    Good luck.

  9. Back when I had a lucid dream (at least I think it was), I never actually did a forced reality check and everything just made sense that it is just a dream. The thing is I can't really control it until today. However, a tip from me to those who want to achieve the "controlling" level of lucid dreaming would be to realize that you are tired and that you need to go back to bed / continue sleeping. After those steps you might and I can't stress this enough might get into a consciousness dream state. Another tip to get your consciousness level up is to drink coffee right before bed. Now I don't know if this applies to everyone but for me I would drink coffee and sleep before the caffeine kicks in and usually the caffeine would help me be in a more conscious state within my dream. You can try these tips, they work for me like not even close to 50% but it did help me and I hope it can help you too.

  10. I dream every single night and remember 95% of it (Iv never tried to control it). Heres how I do it:

    Go to sleep. Wake up an hour before i have to get up. Dont walk around and turn on the lights. Just stay in bed. My phone is close by, so I can reset the alarm to an hour. (Relax, smile:), breath ). Fall back into sleep. By the end of that hour, il have sometimes even 2 very vivid dreams. They easy to remember coz i dont go deeper into sleep, where everything gets wiped out and refreshed. Also taking a long nap during the day does the same. Thats what works for me.

  11. "Life without dreams is like a ship drifting on the ocean that doesn't know where the harbor is" – Damian Malczewski

    If you don't have dreams, you don't know where you go.

  12. Hmmm interesting, i usually set my alarm, wake up, walk around a little bit and then go to sleep again at 3am. I dont wait for so long. Its usually just a 5 min of waking up and sleeping again, to walk around or drink some water.

  13. I remember having a lucid dream when I was eight. I realized what was going on, and I didn't feel like dreaming about it (I forgot what the dream had been). But the moment I thought that to myself, the whole dream disappeared and I was in a void of sorts. Then I said, "I want to see _ (a girl I had a crush on)," and this weird fairytale sprouted up around me. There was a rainbow, the sun was shining, and I was sitting on the bridge with the girl and we just stayed there together. I have no idea what happened after that, but it's definitely one of the weirdest things I've ever experienced.

  14. I tried of being aware of my dream but every time I dreamt it always felt like reality and every time I tried being aware of that I woke up .

  15. If you still interested in controlling dreams.
    Try these:
    – when u're in your dream, get yourself feeling sleepy then yawn.
    – also try these. Other than trying to try to manipulate your dream like "i want to smash a cake" before you sleep expecting that would come out in your dream.
    Do this. When you start dreaming. Pause. Don't continue the story of your dream. Think why you are in that kind of place or story or situation. Think what happened in your real world so you make that kind of dream.

  16. When you always remember your dreams but don’t want to because they’re haunting and freakishly real ….I need a video on how to forgot them
