Have you ever had a dream which was so bad you wanted to change it?
Last night I dreamt of death of a close relative. And it led to a avalanche of emotions. First, I wasn’t ready to believe that it had happened (all the time knowing in a way that it was true). I felt like I was in a bad movie, where everything was going to become magically right in the end.
I tried and tried, inside my subconscious, to change, if I may say so, the script of the dream. I tried to find one loophole or the other, some shortcoming that would tell me that it was a joke. But dreams have this amazing clarity about them which make them feel like they are really real. If I was asked to describe a mirage, I would say it was a dream.
In the end, it turned out like a cheap fantasy story, where I found an old magic script, chanting which would bring the dead to life. I chanted it, again and again, indeed bringing the dead to life.
For a long time, I have tried to make a note of my dreams in a dream journal. Most of the time, I am not able to reproduce it perfectly. What I wonder is, though, is it possible for us to change the course of a dream by conscious channelization of our will-power?

I wonder if that’s the same for dreams as well. What do you think? Share with me in the Comments.
