How to Select Dreams

Some people say that it is possible to choose what you dream about. It is. Using a certain area of your brain before bed may just get you the dream you long for!


  1. 1
    Prepare. When choosing a dream, results are rarely pinpoint accurate. So, to induce as much detail as possible, you will want to be relaxed, and comfortable. Wear good pyjamas, fluff your pillows, take a long bath. Do whatever it takes to clear your mind and calm you down.
  2. 2
    Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Breathe through your nose if possible, and empty your mind.
  3. 3
    Visualise. Form a clear, detailed picture of the sort of dream you want to have. As an example, choose a flying dream. For this, picture what you are exactly. What you look like, how you fly, colours, and clothes. Then picture the landscape. Get a clear, vivid image in your head.
  4. 4
    Plan. Picture the basic 'plot' of your dream. Arrange it into a small clip in your mind, and play it several times, focusing on keeping calm.
  5. 5
    Repeat! Keep replaying the details and the plot until you fall asleep.
  6. 6
    Dream away, little weary one...


  • Stay calm if you don't have the dream you want, as you don't have full control over your dreams.
  • Don't expect this to work immediately. It takes practice.
  • Be careful. Dreams can always turn sour, and no nightmares are fun.
  • If your dreams come true, you can share this with your friends, but try not to tell other people. They might think that you were crazy...


  • Do not attempt if you receive any headaches, repeated nightmares or fear!
