    Ahh, I love dream interpretation as a person in the mental health field. I studied Carl Jung and many others in my masters program of psychology. 

    Yes, we can control some of our dreams some of the time, but it takes work.  Early in my dream studies I learned that if we think hard before bed to remember our dreams and write our dreams down, we can teach ourselves to take more control within our dreams. 

    I know soon after learning this, I had a horrible dream of trying to escape a really evil entity.  I in this dream, knew I was dreaming and I remembered while in my dream I could be in control.  I then became invisible to this entity and kept darting at the evil energy and prayed over it.  When I woke, I was amazed that I had tackled this dream and entity.

    Sure, with lucid dreaming. A lot of writers and directors lucid dream, which is how they come up with new ideas. You can do a few things to try to force your subconscious mind into lucid dreams while you are asleep.

    1. Raise your hand and stare at it for a couple of seconds. Do this 10-20 times per day, when you can remember. Apparently, the hand in dreams looks very different from reality. if you continue to do this daily, it is more likely that you will raise your hand in your dreams, and when you know you are dreaming, you can alter your state.

    2. Ask yourself, "Am I dreaming" 10-20 times per day. Against this is another hint for the subconscious mind to join in with the fun. When you can ask yourself this in a dream, and you truly are dreaming, just think of the fun your mind could conjure within.

    Practice makes perfect with any method of learning. Good luck!

    No, but I can control other people's. You know everytime you dream that you're at work or school, and then suddenly you realize you're naked and everyone's laughing at you? That's me.

    Techniques to control, or at least influence, our dreams have been shown to work in sleep experiments. We can strategize to dream about a particular subject, solve a problem or end a recurring nightmare. With practice we can also increase our chances of having a lucid dream, the sort of "dream within a dream" that Inception's characters regularly slip into.

    The ability to influence other people's sleep worlds is still crude. But emerging technologies raise the prospect that, at the very least, we'll get an idea of what others are dreaming about in real time.

    Yes I can control my dreams. There was a tyrant ruling my country sometime and I dreamt I was some kind of captain who led a team of heavenly soldiers to the tyrants villa and stripped him of his position by court marshall. I gave order to my next in command to deal with him as appropriate.

    I woke up and told someone about it but did not say it was a dream made up by mine imagination on bed.

    After a week there was an announcement on the radio that this tyrant died mysteriously, while some people carried the rumour that he died by eating a poisoned apple.

    Yes, if you develop your faculty of awareness. It can be done through the practice of mindfulness or mindfulness meditation. This trains you to be consciously aware of everything you feel, even in dream. So, when you have the conscious awareness that you are dreaming, while dreaming, you can sure initiate steps to influence it.
    This is the art of lucid dreaming.

    You can also learn it by other means. Now you also have brainwave entrainment technique that can help induce lucid dreaming. My hub on this topic might help:
