How to Dream What You Want – Enjoy Your Virtual Reality

If you are interested in dreams, then you might have often wondered if it is possible to dream what you want because this way you can live your fantasies in the dream world.

Dreams are very much similar to reality because there also we feel emotions and sensations like in the real world. For example, when you get hit by a car you will feel the pain, when you cuddle your lover you will feel love, when you touch the fire your hands will burn, all this happens in your dream world exactly as it would be in your waking life.

Most importantly, sometimes what happens in your dreams will cause your body to react. Like, if you see a ghost in your dreams, your pulse rate and breathing rate rises as if you actually experienced that.

Till you wake up, dreams are your reality and that’s why you can do many things in dreams that are impossible in your real life.

You Don’t Need to Be a Lucid Dreamer

You might have thought that you should have the knowledge of lucid dreaming to do this, that’s a false notion; I have dreamed what I want before I became a lucid dreamer.

A little use of your imagination and you are all set to convert that imagined scene into a dream, however being an advanced lucid dreamer can give you the power to act as you want in the dream and you will also have a partial control over it.

The truth is that our subconscious mind creates the dream scene and decides the course of the dream, but if you are a skilled lucid dreamer you can influence the dream story.

Even though a good lucid dreamer gets the power to control his dreams, that control is very much limited since the dream characters and the whole script is often independent of dreamer’s will.

So, you can surely be the dream architect like Ariadne from the movie “Inception“, but you can’t become the writer of the whole script.

Steps to Induce the Desired Dream

What I am going to share with you here is very much similar to a lucid dreaming method WILD (wake induced lucid dream), but we will only try to transform our imagined scenario into a proper dream.

I would strongly advise you to wake up earlier than your usual time and perform this method by going back to sleep once you are fully awake, but you can do this whenever you want.

Steps:  –

Write down in a paper how you want the dream to be, come up with as much detail as you could and also write the whole story.

Go to bed as usual and relax yourself with 10 deep conscious breaths.

Start imagining what you have written in the journal, this visualization is a fun process, so enjoy it by adding things that you love.

You should be visualizing this till you fall asleep, in most cases you will lose your awareness and the imagined scene will become your dream.

This requires a little practice, so if you are interested enough in your dream world that you will regularly try, then I am sure you will succeed. Some lucky people will be able to do it at their very first attempt.

I have had desired dreams using this method many times and in most cases the dream takes its own direction.

One friend of mine gained an awesome ability by experimenting with his dreams that he was able to resume his dream after a break of about 15 minutes when he had to get up early in the morning to take his dog for a short walk, that’s one of the craziest dream skills I have ever heard about.

So, all I want to say is that start playing with your dreams and gradually you will be having some very interesting dream experiences.

    This is actually true, saying that to everyone who doesn’t believe in conscious dreaming or dreaming what you want. It does take a bit more practice, time and patience than most people would think after reading this post.

    I recommend getting a “dream diary”. I did that and it helped me achieve lucid dreams a few times. It’s basically when you write down your dream in great detail after each morning.

      Yes Julius, lucid dreaming indeed is real and a dream journal makes a lot of difference but I am damn sure that people who don’t know about conscious dreaming can also learn to have intended dreams.

    I would love to dream what I want and with these steps it might be very possible. But isn’t it so that you have to wake up while you are in the dream in order to be able to remember it?
    I mean, if I go to sleep and am able to dream the dream of my wish while falling asleep and then sleep on for 8 hours. Am I then able to remember the dream by the time I wake up?

    1. HARI S NAIR Post author

      That’s a very good question Elisa, this is one of the reasons why I recommended the early morning hours in the post.

      See, dreams happens in the REM cycle which occurs after every deep sleep cycle. So, the chances are less that you will directly enter a dream and have a deep sleep after that. What will happen is that you will have the dream and will be in a pretty much aware state that your excitement will wake you up so that you could record it or your intention will induce that type of dream in your regular rem sleep hour.I hope it makes sense.

    I have experienced to make my own dream and were able to continue where I have stopped the following day. Sometimes the dream itself will take me into a different path. A bit scary, though. I also had an amazing dream that I experienced in real life. So, I do believe in dreams because mine had come through! Thank you for this interesting article.

      Good to hear your views on this Adel, you really are lucky to be able to do that because I have never been able to continue my dreams despite of trying hard. I too enjoy dreams taking its own path because that opens up the doors for new possibilities.

    My dream state has been a long time item of fascination for myself. I have often thought it would be nice if my dreams were more aligned with fantasy stories that I like and will have to work on this.

    Your friend’s skill is one that I have actually used involuntarily when waking from nightmares throughout my life. Didn’t matter if I went right back to sleep or stayed up for a little, I would always fall right back into the nightmare. Thankfully I believe that I have grown a handle on the bad dreams now, but had never thought of using that skill in a positive way. Will definitely be keeping these in mind!

    Thanks for sharing Hari. I know every time I stop by here I learn a great perspective for moving forward with life.

    1. HARI S NAIR Post author

      Wow, James you too had that kind of ability, I really think you should use it in a positive way as you have mentioned because it really can amaze you sometimes and may also trigger a lucid dream. Sometimes conscious dreams can really help you to deal with the nightmares because often nightmares are the indications of some of our unresolved emotional issues, thanks for sharing your views on this 🙂
