I tried dream recall in the morning, and besides remembered parts of the nights dream, I remembered a past dream, and then another. I started recalling tons of dreams I've had from a while back, dreams I hadn't thought about except the morning after the dream itself. If I just sit, remembering past dreams, with the intent to remember another, after a while I do.
A lot of them are only fragments, but for a lot, I remember the scenario, or setting. I've started typing them up, and realize how little I actually remember, but do remember I thought about the dream during the day I had it. (one dream, from my childhood I remember walking around at recessing going over it because it was a very enjoyable dream)
I've found that several dreams take place in a certain area that resembles a lot of places I've been (I've moved a lot), all in a mesh, but that seem to link together. There is a hill, at the bottom of the hill is my old elementary school, but what goes on there is many things that have nothing to do with the actual place, and a nearby a park that seems to combine several parks I've visited in the past, and a large version of my old backyard. Up the hill are places I've visited, and certain specific roads that recur, as well as a relatives house that I've often visited, with many changes.
Recalling other dreams, I've noticed that I'm often climbing a hill, or walking down a hill, which seems like an odd dreamsign. Is this normal, for an activity/environment like this to be a dreamsign?
Has anyone else had this chain-reaction of dream-recall before, where they remember dreams from the past simply by keeping it on their mind for the day, or sitting quietly waiting for them to come to them?
EDIT: I've been able to find new dreams by following patterns. A group of people might lead to another dream with the same people, or a place might remind me of another dream in a similar place.
