Ahh I have the same problem as you! I havent had any improvement and its really getting on my nerves. All I can remember from my dreams is a few small snippets, if that. I used to have 2-3 dreams maybe even more a night. neutral

Mm. It's not that you've been having fewer dreams; everyone has at least 4-5 dreams every night (unless you're sleep deprived...).

Sometimes DR seems to go like that. One day you'll remember 3 or 4 dreams, other days you won't even remember one. That, and people sometimes have bursts of time where they have very high DR, then go into droughts of no DR for a while.

All I have to say is don't get frustrated. DR will come back to you if you keep doing the basics.

That's certainly a dryspell. Such periods when we can't barely remember dreams happen to everybody. So don't get frustrated and be happy... you manage to remember one dream per night! ^^

Have you been stressed latly or just getting back into a new routine? I don't know how old you are but I just had to go back to school a week ago and my dream recall has dropped severly compared to when I was on summer break.

I think the only thing you can do is just wait it out... as frustrating as it is.

Same thing happened to me. I was able to remember about one dream every day..or night, but now I remember once a week, or even once in two weeks.


Scary...

I haven't remembered a single dream I've had in the last 4-5 months. Consider yourselves lucky.

I use to be like that too before I started Lucid Dreaming (Which I haven't had any cry ...but then again I haven't tried lately..) now like I said before, I remember like once a week.

When I started LDing, the same thing happened to me. Usually I would remember 3-6 dreams per night. Then suddenly I remembered barely 1. I think it happens to all of us, but it will pass. wink

It's mostly the alarm clock that's killing my recall. Having to actually deal with something real can make it difficult to remember dreams.
