  • If your husband wants to influence his bad dreams,he needs to try lucid dreaming.

    That's taking control of the script and making it what you wish.

    People can do this while awake or during the dream as soon as they know it's not "real".

    For instance,if,in a dream ,you start falling,dream up a soft landing or (even better) the ability to fly.

    Such a fictional setting is the time to take out the scary monster,tell off the nasty persons in your life or make an instant improvement in a bad situation.

    Dreams are our way of letting our subconcious deal with the constant stimuli it receives and figure out the solutions we need in our waking hours.

    If we can program some "dress rehearsals",we can resolve crises and have victories before the matters ever reach real life.

    (That can save us a lot of hassle.)

    There's no telling what the elements symbolize.

    (Even death can mean a letting go or new start. )

    You keep up your "film career" (and nurturing people,taking them where the need to go,being a sort of oracle?) and see if your husband can't find some happy endings to his depressing scenarios.

  • They say that the more vivid a person's imagination, the more color in a dream; I've always dreamed in color. But I've never been able to direct my dream. I can tell when I have a really weird dream; it makes little or no sense and I can't remember much of it upon waking, especially when they involved horses. The last one, I was at the Celebration when it was held in the old warm-up ring (I didn't even know about Walking Horses then) with people I knew that hadn't even been born.

  • I always have vivid dreams and also dream in color. I've had a few that I could control, but not many. The strangest dreams I ever had were when I was taking Chantix a few years ago to stop smoking. It's one of the side effects.

  • How is Chantix?

    I've wondered about asking our doctor to see if it would help the smokers in the family.

  • I quit in 2 weeks, completely stopped. The only problem I had was crazy dreams.
