Is Dream Control Wrong

Is dream control wrong? I have been doing it since very young and didn't know it had a name until age 35. If so why am I able to do it? If not is there scripture to prove or disprove?

Hi, Nanny . . . that sounds like what Judith is talking about, except she's gotten a lot more into it, than others of us may have. I'm curious if she is into controlling or trying to control people and things while she is awake . . . or just or mainly in her dreams.

I think we need to submit to God for ****His**** ruling of all we do while awake and what we do in dreams.

*Are talking about having a dream, waking up and going back into the dream and making it right or safe?*

It's called lucid dreaming. I was able to do it until I reached the age of 5. It can't be done unless you know you are dreaming. It is basically having a dream while you are asleep but you are aware that you are dreaming, and because you know you are dreaming you can decide what your dream will be about. You can manipulate your dream and just make it do whatever you want. It was quite fun.
---Matthew on 6/30/07

Are talking about having a dream, waking up and going back into the dream and making it right or safe? If this is dream control then I see nothing that I have read in the Bible about it. I have been doing sense youth.I make sure I put my Lord in the middle of it each time.

---nanny on 6/30/07

Most of us can't control our dreams. In fact, I've never met someone who could.

It's like asking if being left-handed is wrong.

Some things are simply morally and spiritually neutral.
---Jack on 6/30/07

Thank you, Mrs. Morgan, and God bless you too.
---AlwaysOn on 10/19/06

AlwaysOn , Yes the occult is not just there, but everywhere, The America's, Asia, Europe,etc. The occult has always been a major problem with mankind in general, Jesus said that He came to destroy the works of the devil(1 John 3:8), only then can people be delivered. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/19/06

Oke ... I see elsewhere that someone is bugging you because she does not agree exactly with your perception on an issue.
You seem to get angy or bugged whenever someone disagrees.
You begin to sound like someone else who knows he is right all the time. Please don't get like that.
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/19/06

Oke ... That you are angry with me for telling the truth shows me a lot about you.
I am sure that what you describe happens, but so does what I told you.
So don't get angry or abuse me ... it ill becomes you.
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/19/06

Hello Mrs. Morgan,

Unfortunately, I've yet to see a single story of satanic ritual abuse involving African children be televised. However, like your minister, I too have been to Africa and keep in very close contact with people living there. While such news isn't often televised, several journalists and activists (African and non) have documented it all and, thanks to the web, the unGodly abuse of children doesn't have to remain a secret unless we allow it.
---AlwaysOn on 10/19/06

Okebaram , I know what you are saying, my minister goes overseas much(Africa, Asia, Europe,etc.), and knows what people are allowing in the Church, what they are teaching their children, I Know. Okebaram my late father came from the same continent that you are from, many from my dad's side of the family have been through awful experiences, Americans just dont know about these things, they just watch tv, and they cant know "everything" from tv.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/18/06

Okebaram, thanks for your reply. I can tell that you're very passionate about this subject. I also concede that we may be talking about slightly different issues regarding the overall welfare of children and how they received the label of witchcraft. What I'm referring to, however, is not ancient ritual abuse, but is happening in Central and East African countries and even in some African so-called Christian churches in the UK today. Look it up online, you'll be shocked by what you read.
---AlwaysOn on 10/17/06

#2 Okebaram, that America regards children isn't saying that children aren't abused in the exact same way here. The UK regards children as well, yet there have been many cases of ritual abuse in African church communities there. They may not be put onto the streets as in some other places of the world, but they are beaten, burned and tortured anyway. Because something isn't legal, is never assurance that people won't do it in secret. This can happen anywhere...even Nigeria.
---AlwaysOn on 10/17/06

Back On Topic: Judith, I don't know if dream control is wrong or not, but I do believe that God does sometime give us dreams for a reason. If you are controlling your dreams, as you say, there is the possibility that you are tuning God out of them. You may want to seriously consider this and teach yourself to hold back and allow your dreams to occur naturally.
---AlwaysOn on 10/17/06

Alan, you do make me angry but you can choose to be ignorant. I am more concerned about these children. AlwaysOn, there isn't enough space on these blogs to begin to narrate stuff. But like I said I am not talking about ostracized children, I am talking about well-cared for children who confess to witchcraft under the power of God,...
---Okebaram on 10/16/06

#2 I am talking about children who are forced to do what they do, some initiated by their parents who were witches themselves and others initiated through friends who were witches. I am talking about children so strongly possessed with demons that the power of God produces violent reactions as they are slain, I am talking about protecting these children from the powers of darkness via prayer and seeing all kinds of supernatural things as demons try to have them back...
---Okebaram on 10/16/06

#3 I am talking about Children who have demonic powers that let them change to other animals, astral project, control others, and I won't talk about this again. Whether you believe me or not will not change anything. Let those who are called to stand in the gap for such victims of the devil do so!
---Okebaram on 10/16/06

#4 AlwaysOn cont'd: I got Spirit-filled at the age of 9; what makes you think that the devil will not initiate children into evil as God does into good? By the way the practise you spoke of was only done in very ancient times (maybe it is still done in other places). People DON'T do that in Nigeria. america isn't the only place that regards children.
---Okebaram on 10/16/06

Okebaram, please tell me what you witnessed. I don't wish to argue with you, I am genuinely interested. My concern is for children accused of witchcraft being completely ostracized from their families and society. And, yes, I use the word "accusation", because I don't believe that a 5 year old can kill a parent via witchcraft any more than I believe she should be put on the streets after their demise. Offending you isn't my intention, but my concern is for children bearing these stigmas.
---AlwaysOn on 10/16/06

Oke ... the methods you have described have been used in this country by deluded pastors, and have resulted in the death of children.

AlwaysOn, do you think I am telling you something that I did not witness? Accusations? Do you think I am talking about superstition here? I don't blame you for questioning my statement since you never lived in Africa with me and went through the process of trying to deliver those children by the power of God and fighting with demonic powers.
---Okebaram on 10/15/06

I don't mean to sound ignorant, but what do you mean by dream control?
---Norma7374 on 10/14/06

Okebaram, I cringe at your assertion of children being witches. I'm familiar w/stories of African children driven from their homes & marginalized from society due to accusations of witchcraft when a parent dies or when tragedy strikes. I understand how other religions fall prey to such beliefs, but am deeply grieved when I hear Christians entertaining the possibility regarding children. Respectfully, I take major issue with this.
---AlwaysOn on 10/14/06

Yea, havent you all seen Bewitched? Her little daughter, Tabatha? She could wiggle her little noes and do witch tricks at the age of 3! (sorry)

Oke .. Witches at 4 ... is that verified ?
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/13/06

Indeed, my father is a pastor, and deliverance minister in Nigeria. And while I stayed with him, I saw many witches, young and old. I've seen many children initiated into witchcraft at ages 4,5,6...
It's sad that the devil can become a big root in the life of a child so young.
---Okebaram on 10/12/06

wow a witch at 4 wouldn't have thought it. But nope not me :-)
---judit4846 on 10/12/06

Judith, I'm not commenting on dream control or countering what you said but I want you to know that there are witches who are 4 years old.

No, I was about 7 or 8 when I was doing this what would I have even known about occult?
Also about the sleep clinic thing it doesn't consume my awake time at all was a simple question like anyother here on this site. but thanks 4 the input
---judit4846 on 10/11/06

It is very possible that you need prayer for it. Have you ever been involved in the occult in any way?
---Helen_5378 on 10/11/06

The fact that it is consuming some of your awake time mulling it over, maybe it's time to visit a medical sleep clinic/physician.
---Raine on 10/8/06

alan trust me It is the hardest thing to explain. I just know that I know when I'm asleep and at times will change my dream at will If I don't like what I'm dreaming. Or once asleep If I want to finish an old dream I will. At times it feels like I'm directing.if I do or say someting that I shouldn't I'll repent there in my dream. I don't know what more to say but that it is like directing.

The only dreams we usually remember are the ones we are having when we awaken. As some others have said, I don't know how you could 'control' your dreams.
Maybe you've 'overdosed' on Jungian psychology!
---NV_Barbara on 10/8/06

aJudith ... I just cannot comprehend what you are talking about. There is no way I have been aboe to control, or even know about my dream, unless it one I am in the middle of as I wake.
What you are talking about seems to me to be what I would call a "day-dream"
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/7/06

Billy. I have flown also, been invisible, breathed under water. " Once in a dream where i was invisible someone saw me and i told them this is my dream so they can't se me so lets do it over" Funny I know. I just asked the question cause I was once told it was wrong to dream control. I don't tell people about it much though. Thanks
---judit4846 on 10/5/06

Billy. If I even begin to do something sinful in my dream I stop it and Repent there in my dream. I have even told people in my dream I can''t do things cause it is a sin and cause I know it is just a dream and not real. Id then switch the dream.

I am 35 and I think it has been going on since about 7yrs old about that. I don't do it all the time only if it is a bad dream or if I really want to finish a dream from days b4 or if I want to dream something specific or if my dream is boring. I think they try to teach it but not sure were. I personaly don't know how it could be taught. if u look up Lucid dreams talks on it.
---judit4846 on 10/5/06

Insightful question; these "dreams"Border on what some call "words of knowledge" or others refer to this as "visualization". I have experienced many times the "word of knowledge" phenomenon. It is as though someone was whispering in your a ear or to your mind. Being able to control "dreams" is a new idea to me.
---mima on 10/5/06

Okebaram, it is in a R.E.M. sleep. you cant do this right when you go to sleep. You have to get at least 5 to 6 hours of sleep before R.E.M. sleep startes. Try going to bed and set your alarm clock for 6 hours later and wake your self up and then go back to sleep and thats when ive had most of my dreams. The reason I know this is I hit my snoze a lot and dream between the 10 minute intervals LOL. I did laugh, but this is true...
---Billy on 10/4/06

Judit, I have hade dreams that I could control, and do things from flying, to breathing under water. It just happened that way but had never thought about trying to take control of every dream I had. I might try harder in my dreams to do that. Eather way, I dont know of any scripture that will help. Only if you dont try to control your dream to the point of commiting adultry, or other sins, I dont see anything wrong with taking the dream experiance to the next level.

*sorry but I feel this to be wrong. It sounds everybit so similer to the evil practice of controlling your spirit to leave your body and traveling around then coming back to your body, so I would say repent of it and stop*

Eliza, its a dream, its not real! Im sure that youve had bad dreams before right. So if you could have controled that dream to stop and start dreaming something better, would you not do it? And this isnt spirit travel, or anything Satanic, its a dream, and nothing more.
---Billy on 10/4/06

Your story might as well be mine, as I had the same experience. I have no scripture to reference, however, I did feel convicted by the Spirit that it was wrong.
---Karen on 10/4/06

My humble opinion: I think it's awesome! I wish I could dream whatever I wanted! I'd be dreaming my life away probably. I'd be dreaming of all the people I miss, dreaming that I was in heaven, dreaming I was meeting Jesus! Just think of the stuff you could dream about, I'd LOVE it. I wish you could explain how to do it. You say you could do this since you were a kid? How old are you now if you dont mind me asking? God bless.
---sue on 10/4/06

judit4846 I think you have been given a rather wonderful gift... And i think that it demonstrates a kind of faith... and God has worked with you in this area. I have had dreams about things that came true exactly... and have even had control a time or two to change it from bad to good. I have continued a dream before... but i never thought about it until i read your stuff. I think ASK God to reveal the answers to your questions..and He will surely answer.

1. Please give book, chapter, and verse from the Bible where it says that "dream control" is wrong.

2. Please give exact points of similarity between dream control and astral projection. "It sound like it" is not an acceptable answer.

#4 Any way like i said i gues unless you study sleep patterns u wont understand cause I still don't quite understand i just know when I'm asleep and may be I'm just a bit more intune with my subconcious I don't know. I was thinking of going to one of those dream seminars maybe then can help or confuse me. Maybe i'd meet some one who could relate. Maybe be God gave me a gift cause it begain my callin out for him. I doubt you understand any better sorry.

#3 Also I find that if I dream something i thin kis wrong in Gods eyes I would stop my dream and repent and start a new dream. Now I don't always control my dreams I only di if it goes nasty, or if i want to dream something specific that night. I tried writing a sone the other night. but could ony write 2 scentences cause I started to wake cause i was worrying if I was writing over my first scentence i eventually gave up and just finished the dream.
---judit4846 on 10/3/06

#3 I don't really care who believes or not just thought with all the people on the sight one could relate. I just know that in my dreams if I want to be invisible and someone sees me i saw no this is my dream so you can't see me so lets rewind and do this part again. 4 me dreaming is like a play and I'm directing I get to act in it, I get to make others do over things or i simply stop it and start it again.
---judit4846 on 10/3/06

#3 I have read that people teach it which I can't see how that could be. I also know I'm not THE only one and would like to meet somone else like me. Ok let me just say the other night I wanted to try drawing a clothing design so when i knew I was asleep I said ok now lets start the design dream. I did and drew a perty neat outfit and I wrote about the design in case the drawing ooked crapy. Came out good and the design was great.

#2 it isn't what I eat though I've heard it and trust me I know it sounds crazy can you imagine as a child telling your friends how you changed a dream cause you just got tired of the first dream you had. Or that you had a cool dream and couldn't wait to go home and finish it.

it is hard to explain if you have never heard it done and i don't know how i did it I just know It was since I was young started with nightmares when I begain to call on God in my dream he'd change them then i'd call on him to change it if something i didn't like happened. Now I can just dream what I want though there are those times I have the ocassional BAD dream and still need to call on my Father to change it.
---judit4846 on 10/3/06

I think she's talking about lucid dreaming. Exp. dream you're flying, you understand it's just a dream and keep on flying anyway. Or you're going over the cliff, you tell yourself it's just a dream, stop short. Don't know the science behind it, but could be half awake, half asleep condition. A sleep clinic could tell you where they help with sleep apnea.
---Raine on 10/3/06

...And ofcourse, it prevents the oppurtunity of receiving a dream from God, since you don't actually sleep. But it doesn't prevent t he devil from giving you a bad dream because in such a situation, he'll make you really fall asleep, so quickly, you won't even know when it happens.
---Okebaram on 10/3/06

...You aren't actually dreaming though because though your body does rest, you aren't actually in a R.E.M. sleep, and you know you are "dreaming" and can open your eyes anytime you want (though you probably wouldn't be anxious to).

I think I know exactly waht Judith is talking about, and it technially isn't a dream, but I have done it before myself. (didn't know what it was called either). You simply lie down, close your eyes and imagine what you want to dream. After a while, your imagination becomes more and more vivid, and your external senses number, until it is like a dream that you imaging what you want to happen. (this can also be done halfway through a real dream). Cont'd...

The only way anyone can control dreams is by what you see,eat,or think before bedtime,and then it can't be controlled exactly what you dream. It sounds like you may well be getting into New Age thinking and I suggest you stop. Will lead away from Christ. I don't know what you call dream control but I think perhaps you are mistaken,please explain so we can "see" clearly what you are talking about.
---Darlene_1 on 10/3/06

Donna::I have never heard of people controling a dream .They say "A dream is a wish your heart makes when your fast asleep"Its considered to be an involuntary thought born in your subconscious mind.If it's a nightmare then the only antidote is to pray before you go to bed & the first thing when you awake.Personally I go to sleep to Dream.I usually say my Rosary.& put her Angelic Psalter under my Pillow,as it'sthe prayer of Christ& the angelic salutation.I wish you well& pleasant dreams.
---Emcee on 10/3/06

Can you tell us how you go about controlling your dreams? Are you sure it isn't your thinking process when you're awake or half asleep and think it's dreams? A person can have visions when they're awake, but even those you can't control. How do you control your dreams? I'd be interested to hear your answer. Thank you.

---Roxy_S on 10/2/06

Sue, I do the same thing. I can have a great dream, wake up for water, and jump back in the same dream. Especially if I'm camping in the mountains or canoeing on a lake. I extend those out as long as I can. It's fun. Far better than a nightmare.
---Raine on 10/2/06

wow! I wish I could control my dreams! I'd be dreaming of heaven every night! The closest thing I've ever come to dream control is a couple times I woke up, then when I went right back to sleep I continued my same dream. It's interesting to see if it's okay in God's eyes.I dont think there is anything in the Bible.
