There are techniques for consciously controlling dreams, and you seem to be in possession of such a technique.
Myself, I don't seem to dream except in nightmares and night terrors. The kind of nightmares where you wake up as you are trying to jump out of your bed to avoid whatever horrible thing is coming after you. Or when you wake up terrified to move because you are convinced that there is some horrible beast in your presence and it takes every bit of courage for you to turn on the light. Or night terrors where you scream and lash out in your sleep and no one can wake you up.
