Dan Pouliot Posted 11 months ago What good is being able to control our dreams? "Control" is but one aspect of our relationship to dreams, what if we changed that word to "harness"?.... As a teenager I learned about dream control and out of body experiences. I get very good at realizing what I was dreaming, I could do it several times a week. And I had my first out of body experience and a kind of terrified me. Since then my ability to realize when I was dreaming has diminished greatly, but it still happens a couple times a month. I also have a long history with positive thinking (i.e. Napoleon Hill), and so I see it is very important to pay close attention to and take responsibility for one's thoughts. Within the past year I received training as a remote viewer, which is fascinating though time-consuming. So I decided to try blending remote viewing with dreaming to see what kind of results I would get. (With 20 years of personal history of dream control, I can say that I did it for entertainment value, though using it to get answers to questions seems a much more valuable excercise). In short, it is been a fascinating experiment that I am still doing today, and getting some very interesting results. I am not "controlling" my dreams so much as putting forth a question before I go to sleep and see if I get an answer in my dreams. You can read a more extended right up in the "harnessing dreams" section of my blog post: http://danpouliot.com/blog/2013/03/more-about-remote-viewing/ If you are not familiar with remote viewing, I have an extensive post on that too, including my own results: http://danpouliot.com/blog/2012/07/remote-viewing/ it is relevant because remote viewing and dreams share a common base which is the unconscious.
