Hi secretsquirrel,

Even if you just remember a feeling, write it down in you DJ. Your dream recall will enhance little by little.
You'll find very good tips about dream recall in this post and in this one.

Problems with Dream Recall
PostPosted: Sat 15 Jul, 2006  Reply with quote

<mod>Topic merged into the "BIG Remembering dreams" topic</mod>

Hi!
I'm new and I begun my quest for LD about a week ago but I have a major problem: my dream recall is terrible, really terrible.

I keep a dream journal but I can only (if I am lucky) recall about one dream per week and that dream is usually hazy and I can only recall small fragments of it. I try to focus on remembering my dream and tells (speaks) my subconscious self of my intention to do so. So far it hasn't helped, I can't remember my dreams at all.

Any suggestions?

Keep trying and recording your dreams. Do you try to recall them right as our waking up?

I hate it when people always come up with the recording. There must be something else!?

I think you'll find you have more vivid dreams during afternoon naps and the like. If you get the chance, sleep-in. I often have my most vivid dreams when I'm sleeping-in and drifting in and out of sleep.

But really, you just have to keep at it. If you're getting frustrated, take a break.

Oh, and keep recoding your dreams tounge2

Thanks, I'll keep trying and continue to record them. And yes, I try to recall my dreams right after waking up. I have a dream journal next to my bed so that I will be able to record any dreams I might remember before losing them completely. Most of the time, trough, it is completely blank and i just wake up with no memory of any dream at all.

Due to some obscure twist of fate I find it really hard to sleep in the afternoon (except when I'm really tired) but I could be worth a try.

i remember dreams alot better in the car than anywhere else


I pretty sure it's because when you sleep in uncomfortable/unfamiliar surroundings you don't sleep as easy, i.e. you're more aware.

I'm mostly able to recall at least 3 dreams a night but sometimes it's more and sometimes it's less, but I'm satisfied ^^ In the beginning I didn't remember any dreams, but if you keep practicing,...

you'll see ^^

Don't think so. ^^ If you practice a bit of autosuggestion and read the tips I gave you the links towards on the top of this page, you'll quickly make big progress.

This has got to be the only forum where someone could put a smilly after a statement like that. Where else could someone be happy about almost getting their face shaved off? grin

I suppose you're talking about the MILD induction technique? If so, you should post it there and not in the BIG remembering dream topic.
It's a terrible question though. eh
