ADRT- Anchored Dream Recall Technique
PostPosted: Tue 20 Oct, 2009  Reply with quote

After good results that the experiment produced I decided to put this technique here.

The experiment can be found HERE

Keep in mind that explanation of technique there is just a draft. Just below you will see a explanation on how to do the technique.

The anchoring is same like classical conditioning but with fancy name smile
If you would like to know how it works just google "conditioning" or "pavlov's dog".

How to do the technique
First you have to decide what your anchor will be, it can be almost anything. I think it's best to use the one used in experiment.

Examples of anchor :

  • Tapping your wrist
  • Looking at certain picture
  • Hearing a specific sound

Then, you have to learn to recognize the feeling of DR. It comes just before the actual recall and that's when you need to react. It's the feeling that you know you dreamed something but not yet what, usually in few seconds after that you recall what you dreamed about.

When you are certain you know how to recognize the feeling - Start, in the morning when you wake up, to anchor that feeling. In other words as soon as you get the feeling tap your wrist two times or do whatever you chose as an anchor.

Be sure to do that 3-7 days without using the anchor for anything else.
When those few days passed continue to anchor the feeling in the morning, but every time you have problems with DR use the anchor while trying to remember.

While doing this technique you need to continue using your DJ (or not if you don't use one at all ). Do not try modifying it since it could give unexpected results.

Simple but it works.

Give it a try and tell me what you think about it.

This sounds like a great idea and i will definitely give it a go.

Just so i've got it straight - the idea is to use your anchor (e.g tapping your wrist) in the morning just as you start to remember your nights dream/s? Have i got that right? shy2

Yes, you got it right. That question was already asked in experiment topic.
When you got the FEELING of recall tap your wrist.
Everything is in explanation in first post here.

I'm going to start doing this tomorrow morning if I can remember.. I've been telling myself to do RC's when I wake and I forgot to the past few mornings until this morning.. I did it about 30 seconds after I was awake..

I will do my best to remember to do this though.. I had that feeling of remembering very strongly this morning.. I wish I had started then wink5

I just started taking omega3 and last night I did get much more vivid dreams.. and better recall than the past two nights.. we'll see how tonight goes.. wish me luck! smile
