If I write down a dream in the middle of the night I'll usually only vaguely remember it and I wont be able to read my writing at all.

What I think I wrote:

I saw her again walking home at 6am. I considered taking a sign away. I copied some company by mixing two spray things. I felt a bit sick.

eek2

I was trying to decipher my notes a few days ago...

"tyranasaurus? -- Nah, I'm sure there weren't any dinosaurs in my dreams last night. And certainly not in association with 'cafeteria'...

'Fireman sir' ? -- Nope, that doesn't feel right...

What could that first letter be. Maybe I can try to duplicate it, and figure out what I was trying to write... Hmmm, doesn't seem it's supposed to be a 'P' or a 'D'

'Theramin' ? -- Well, that's plausable. But it doesn't ring any bells...

Eventually, out of the blue (30 minutes later), after I'd given up and I was transcribing the next dream, it came to me at last, as I finally remembered the scene -- the word was 'tiramisu' (the layer cake)!

I've just started keeping a dream journal.. I have 4 NDs recorded. The second one I was still half asleep when I wrote apparently because it's mostly just scribbling all over the page and almost completely illegible. I don't remember the dream, but the only word I was able to decipher was 'sex'. Doh! too bad I forgot that one.

Yeah it has happened to me. I will go back and read older entries from my dream journal and be like, huh lol. I know I wrote this but goodness I don't really remember this dream.

I feel that is why it is good to write your dreams down as soon as you wake up. There are many mornings where I really don't feel like it. My eyes are half open my hand is still half asleep, but I do it because it really helps me with dream recall in the future as well as interpreting my dreams and noticing recurring symbols and patterns.

In the long run, it really helps you to learn more about yourself and helps to solve problems in this life. :D

Oh, does anyone notice how you will start to remember stuff from your dreams during the day while doing other stuff? Then you gotta try to go write it down or add it to your DJ ? This has been happening to me a lot lately. It's like certain things during the day will trigger my memory of a dream I had the night before. eek2

No, not at all. In fact, it's the exact opposite for me (probably because there IS nothing in my daily life that even comes close to my weird dreams!). I remember the details of a dream when I wake up and commit them to memory so that I can call them up when I need to. Then, I get out of bed and promptly let myself "forget" everything. During the day I don't think about dreaming at all.

But at night time, as soon as I sit back down in my bed and get my laptop ready to type up the dream, the details come flooding back. Sometimes even parts I didn't remember when I first woke up. I think it's being in bed that triggers the memories, for sure.

Cool, Storm. wink

So, yours are triggered later in the day when you get back into bed. I see.

For me it's with any random thing during the day. I was looking out my window one day and saw a tiny bug on the screen, then it hit me! I had a weird dream the other night about bugs that completely slipped my mind until that moment lol.

Then I go and write it down in my DJ.

I've had this happen, too. I was watching a movie and when a doctor picked up a scalpal I was hit with a memory of a dream I had where I was trying to get this knife/scalpal thing from a dream DC... I couldn't recall much more about it, but the movie triggered it, and I didn't remember it at ALL before that.

I was reading this thread and fell off my chair from laughing so hard. I just started my DJ today so I don't have any weird entries in it yet.

Heh. I wrote something like that in my dream blog (sig) but it was along the lines of "fought the bouncy marshmallow bunnies"

I do that sometimes, but it's not as much fun, because I always remember eventually. I've always had good dream recall. So even if I do find a page in one of my school notebooks with 'GREEN LEOTARD' added in red sharpie(which I did), I'll remember what it means eventually. (I did.)
