Sudden lack of recall; please help
PostPosted: Tue 24 Oct, 2006  Reply with quote

Hey everyone,

Well two nights ago I woke up without a single flicker of recall. I thought it was just a coinsidence but today when I woke up; same thing. No recall; at all. Nothing, no fragments, nothing. I thought and really told myself I would have a dream and be lucid in it, I might have been but I do not remember anything. I went to bed later than usual too. Can it be this? Because this sudden lack of direct recall is really scaring me that I might not be able to get a lucid dream again for a while. Please help. help! I've had excellent recall just three nights ago but now... sigh help! sadblauw

At one stage I went through a time of no recall for around 2 weeks. It was..terrible, thats the only way I can put it.
Sometimes no recall comes from both internal and external factors. Think about your life now. Are you stressed, tired, agitated..any lifestyle changes? Changing diet and exercise can also change dream recall, believe it or not. From what I've gathered, you're not trying too hard to LD, so that really isnt a factor. It could just be one of those natural one-offs, you know, your bain needs a break once in awhile! lol ^^

Good luck!

Weird, I'm having a problem like that too! Ok, I've been having LD's almost every night for a little while now but my recall has gone down the tubes, cry I've only been remembering 1-2 dreams a night when it was 4-5. It's like I've traded good recall for LD's it's very weird... whatsthat will I get it back? help!

DarkRaven, recalling 1-2 dream a night is very good and many people would be happy with that. Recalling about 1 dream a night is largely enough to remember LD's. Hence I think you don't really have any problem.

Congrats on your good Dr though! :D

Temporally losing dream recall abilities is very common. It has even been called by some people a "dryspell". It may come with stress, for instance when you go to school again after the holydays, etc. Just wait a little, don't worry and your dream recall will come again.

I'll merge this topic with the "BIG Remembering dream" topic.

Really? That makes me feel better, I just got a little scared that's all. I've been in a constant good, (and very random,) almost blissful cloud9 mood ever since this started so maybe that has something to do with it, I don't know. I've just had urges, (more then usual, :D ) to do weird things, like yesterday I was walking around the house in reigndeer pajama pants, one of my dad's oversized shirts, this weird blond wig, (my hair is dark brown so it looked weird,) with a bandanna on and a vampire cape and a stick going around telling my siblings I was "Buffy the the Vampire Slayer". *laughs* lach1 and I keep doing stuff like that, I mean, I always do weird stuff but there's been an increase in it lately, and the weird thing is my dreams have started being MORE rational! crazy They've been less wacked out then they usually are but still a little wonky...thanks for helping! hugs

I've been getting better at dream recalling more and more ever since I got into a steady relationship. Reason why?

Everytime when I wake up during the night I've got this auto function to start telling him what I dreamt tounge2 Therefore, my mind starts linking remembering dreams to something that needs to be done. Ergo, the subcon tries a little harder to help me.

Now I need to really bring it up to 1, or 2 full dreams per night.

Redused LD/ND - Help.
PostPosted: Sat 11 Nov, 2006  Reply with quote

Hello.

My LD/ND has totally gone away atm, i dont know what happened but suddenly it all stopped and I cant remember my dreams well anymore, i try to make a DJ but forget every thing after 5min, i have clear and vivid dreams, but the memory isnt really good, i've had 2 LD's so far. That was a DILD.

I do WILD every night i go to sleep, or atleast try to do WILD, but it doesnt really work out for me, so any suggestions for what to do?
ulv.

Stop doing the WILD.

I find that even in my case I can sometimes inhibit my lucid dreams by concentrating too much on them, even if it's before 9:45 ish.

The point is, take a few days off, and just try not to think about lucid dreaming for a bit.

How much time do you need to remember your dreams??
PostPosted: Sat 11 Nov, 2006  Reply with quote

<mod>Topic merged</mod>

Hey, a question, people!

How much time do you need after waking up to remember your dreams?? And what method do you use?

I use to look at a random object in my room... So with a little effort, the dreams come to me! 8D

Usually when i wake up my mind is blank, so i just close my eyes and dig deep! after a minute or so i'll get a few pictures which give me clues, and then once i start writing it jogs my memory and everything that i can remember usually comes out into my DJ

I usually just remember a few fragments and try to elaborate on them. I need to start with something however, or else I usually won't remember anything.

1 of 2 things happens:

I remember the dream as I wake from it... like my existence carries on from the dream to wakefulness.

I normally remember it after a couple of seconds, as long as my concentration is not broken by something like my alarm radio.

I recall my last dream instantly, then I try to remember the ones before, it takes almost a minute.
