I have a fairly good control over my dreams, as RJ111 has already said it's like swimming against a gentle tide (good metaphore there). I used to be able to do it every night as a kid but now I'm getting older (the big 20 this year) I don't seem to have as much control nor do I dream as much.
It used to be really cool, I would think really hard as I'm drifting off and then it would kick in as a dream yet I could actually control what was happening in the dream. Its now a case of I can only control myself in the dream and not anyone or anything else there, I have noticed that my dreams do seem to have a meaning now whereas as a kid they were just fairly pointless.
One thing is though you never can control (k)nightmares (K for the TV
show), I've noticed I've had one or two of those recently.
Anyone have recurring dreams?
