How to Mind Control

Mind control of other characters in your lucid dreams can be a great way to manipulate the course of your lucid dreams. There are several different ways to control other characters in your dreams. Some are more like regular manipulation that lets you still interact with the characters on more of a normal level. Other methods, though, involve total mind control – as you’d get with a magic spell or something that allowed you to get a person to do exactly what you want.

As with any other dream control method, mind control of other dream characters basically involves believing you can control the actions, thoughts, or words of other characters. It isn’t rocket science, and different people will use different techniques to make it happen. Just remember, though, that when you’re lucid dreaming, you’re totally in control and can do pretty much whatever you want – even act through other characters when it pleases you.

Mind Control Techniques

There are as many mind control techniques as there are dreamers who practice this form of dream control. However, these three basic techniques can get you started. If one doesn’t work, just try another one. You can even modify the existing methods to work for your needs exactly. Here are just three ways to mind control other characters in your dreams:

  1. Just know what the characters are going to do before they do it. Some dreamers find that it’s a little like watching a movie that they’ve seen before, where they already know what other characters are going to do. The difference is that they’re making up the plot line and the actions of other characters to suit themselves! You, too, can practice this sort of soft mind control. Just start interacting with other characters in your dream and knowing what they’re going to do before they do it. You’ll find that they’ll do whatever it is you thought they would.
  2. Actually tell dream characters what to do, assuming they’ll follow your instructions. Tell a character to kiss you or fly you to the moon – whatever. Just fully expect that they’re going to follow your instructions, and they will. This can be a little less fun because it seems more direct, but it can work if you’re having trouble with mind control techniques at first. It still gives you a way to control your dream characters, so it’s definitely an option to try.
  3. Control them with magic. Many video game players and fantasy readers, in particular, find that it’s easier to make things happen in their dreams through magic. If you want to mind control someone, cast a mind control spell on them like you might in a video game. You can cast a spell with words, looks, actions, or a magic wand you’ve created as a dream object – whatever works for you best. One problem here is that you might have to work around your preconceived video game and fantasy ideas of what mind control looks like if you want something different. For instance, some mind control spells let you see through the eyes of the other character and perform actions for them, and others make the characters puppet-like. You can use these effects if you want, but don’t be afraid to let your imagination break outside the box of what mind control looks like through magic.

Controlling other characters can help you mold the plot of your lucid dream. Sometimes you might need to actually populate your dream world with characters intentionally, but people often find the characters are already there, just waiting to be interacted with in their dreams.
