A little trick to gain control over your dreams as you sleep...
« on: October 11, 2008, 06:26:16 AM »
I learned this trick from the cult classic film "Waking Life", a movie where the main character keeps waking up to find he's in yet another dream.

Anyway, the trick goes like this.  If your in a dream, it always feels real.  But sometimes there may be moments where you have a window in which you have some presence of mind.  If you get that window, go try to turn a light on and off.  Seriously, find a light switch in your dream and try to turn it on and off.  IT'S THE ONE THING YOU CAN NEVER DO IN A DREAM!  It's fascinating, because you can do anything in a dream, you can have sex with your dream girl, be the king of the world, burn in the fires of hell... whatever you can imagine... but there's just one thing you can't do, YOU CAN NOT TURN A LIGHT ON AND OFF! 

I was having a nightmare the other night and I tried this trick for the first time, during the nightmare I was hoping maybe it was just a dream, so I went to go turn a light switch on and off, and when I couldn't I knew it was just a dream, and suddenly I GAINED POWER OVER MY DREAM, and I was able to ask myself what I wanted to do inside the dream and I actually decided to toss my enemy in the dream like 10 feet having him land on the concrete.

Anyway....I found out about this in the movie, and I tried it and it actually worked.

Usually I don't have control of what happens in my dreams so I wouldn't be able to go find a light switch.

Your a perfect candidate to try something like this.

Basically I was in the midst of my nightmare, and I thought, "how do I get out of this"... then I remembered the light switch thing, so I went to turn the lights on and off... and when I couldn't I was suddenly empowered... I knew for sure I was having a dream so I immediately took control and turned things my way in the dream.

If been doing that for a while, it's great to take control of your own dream and chance the storyline, love it

i think the key is to consciously think about it before you go to sleep

As soon as i realize Im in a dream, I tend to wake up almost instantly
been rockin' longer than niggas twice my age
back in the days before Bob Marley was rockin' a fade
before Honest Abe signed the paper that freed slaves
before Neanderthals was drawing on walls in caves
I existed, in the garden of Eden gettin' lifted
stickin' dick to Eve before she was Adam's mistress
before Christ created Christmas, I been in lyrical fitness
the Canibus is spittin' til' he's spitless - Canibus
