my dreams that I remember are always very vague and it seems like they are in sections persay. I remember little parts of a dream.

That's completely normal, think about yesterday: I bet you can't remember what happened that vividly and you probably can't remember absolutely everything. This is no different than remembering your dreams and is normal but you can improve on the norm when you practice.

Making progress with remembering what I dream~ They're always nice and weird. But sometimes when i wake up halfway through the night I forget to journal and then i forget the dream... Have no time to lie in bed in the mornings... because my mom rushes me off to school...bleh.

*end useless post* =P

ive only just started trying to remember my dreams, but last night i said before i fell asleep "tonight i will dream and when i wake up i will remember it". I had a dream and remembered it vividly when i woke up at 5:00am, and didnt bother to write it down! only now 8 hours later i just remembered it! it really helps to keep a dream journal right next to your bed

Oh wow.
I haven't been able to remember my dreams for a while, but yesterday when I went to bed, I just kept saying to myself that I will remember my dreams, but then in Dutch this time.
I have to say, it really worked. I remembered 6 dreams (and one really vague scene) today, and it took me quite some time to write them all down since they were all relatively long and/or detailed.

I did a bad thing though, when I woke up the first time (that was around 08:00AM, 3 hours after my alarm went off.. It was still ringing) I didn't write down my first couple of dreams. I do remember them quite well though because I relived my dream in reverse a couple of times, just like the book Exploring The World Of Lucid Dreaming said. However, I forgot one fine detail, I forgot what a girl said to me and actually that was quite important. Ahh well, at least I remember how I felt back then.

<mod> merged into the BIG remembering dreams topic ^^ </mod>

I have ultimately bad dream recall, i'm afraid hand voor hoofd

I was wondering, I tell myself to remember my dreams, and i kinda keep a dream journal. (although it's hard when I never remember my dreams) So, what can I do to improve it? help!

Thanks and hugs to anyone that helps!! hugs

First: Try not to move when you wake up. Just lay there and try to remember your dreams. Eventually, you WILL remember something.

Then, write down EVERYTHING you feel when waking up. Do you feel sad, angry or happy? Write it down. Do you think of dolphins and water, or cars and explosions? Just write it down, and DON'T think "Well, if I just skip one day it won't matter", because it really does.

Maybe you'd like to combine this with Palina's 30 day to success?

*Hugs back* hugs

Remind yourself before you go to sleep, to remember your dreams, reapeat it to yourself until you fall asleep. Then upon waking up in the morning, (or night) don't move, don't budge. And keep your eyes closed. And think back on what you were just dreaming about. If you can't remember anything, think about how you felt when waking up. Just don't try to forcefully bring back the dream. Softly think about it and it should come to you ^^ and that's my advice, dunno if it will work.

I feel your frusturation, I am starting from scratch pretty much with my Dream Recall. Melissa and Viking are right in what they say you just have to write down everything.

For example, last night I had three dreams, but I could only remember a fragment of the last dream I had, I remembered legend of zelda, as I was writing down the experience, the room I was playing it in for example, I remembered people in the room, I wrote down what they were doing, something they did reminded me of a dream I had before that, I wrote that down about a flood and whatnot, I then remembered more of the 3rd dream. eventually I remembered the first dream right before I did my WBTB.

Its a tricky process expecially when your starting out, definatly see what works best for you, I usually have the best luck, as soon as I wake up, lay there and try to remember as much as I can (dont focus to hard) then after about a minute or so, go and start writing, explaining every detail, I usually remember more this way.

I made few days off LDing, and now when im back in it, i lost my recall. And at morning i have to get up to school, im not thinking about dream.

If i even think about it, it's like i recall thinking "ow , that dream was interesting/awesome/weird", and nothing more. That's freighteining.

Anyways, few days ago i had big, round 0 in my head. Now i have LITTLE recall, so there isnt so bad.

Week or one and half, and everything will be like in good old days.

Shem: association and recurring dream "signs" often help me a _lot_ when trying to recall dreams. I usually have pretty good recall already (it's rare when I don't remember at least one dream every day), but sometimes it takes a few minutes.

The thing is more or less to simply think about things you might have dreamt about. In my case, I really often dream about people I know in real life, so when I wake up, I think of them (friends, family, colleagues, etc.), and if did I dream about one of them, a tiny piece of the dream comes back.

By association (I often see my friends at university or work, so perhaps I dreamt I was at university/work) you can then remember other things, until you (hopefully) can reconstruct the entire dream smile


SD: I heard that you have about 10/11 dreams a night, but then again, 8 is really a lot smile My personal record is 7, after WBTB and a lot of exercises...

I think my dream recall is getting better already, and I've only been trying for a few days. At first I would only be able to write maybe one word in my DJ. This morning I filled up almost 2 pages with 2 dreams that I recalled. One was fragmented, the other I remembered pretty good. So it's getting better and hopefully I can LD soon.

Last night wasn't exactly what I'd been hoping. All that day (we did a lot of driving) I tried to nap and remember my dreams. Either it's the way my parents drive or something else entirely but I just could not remember anything when I actually got to sleep! Grr! grrr To top it all off I couldn't seem to find my usual one big dream when I woke up. I found a lot of impressions and smaller snipet dreams (one at a time) and wrote them down.


What exactly do you think was contributing to my inability to find my 'big dream'?
