Re: Weird dream inside a dream
Google lucid dreaming.
I've read some stuff on ways to practice this. Supposedly if you work at it, you can eventually be able to control them.
I can't remember exactly but it was something like, throughout the night - anytime you wake up, roll over and write down what happened. Then read over it in the morning. Also always think to test yourself in your dreams, such as repeatedly look at a clock. If it changes each time, you are dreaming. Once you realize you are dreaming, you can do whatever.
I never did try the journal thing, but concentrating on remember dreams seemed to work a little bit. IDK if I really believe it, kinda seems like voodoo to me.
