    Yes, it is possible to remember dreams through our long term memory.  Any dream we recall from the past would be in our long-term memory.

    Most dreams are not remembered at all.  When we awake, we could recall dreams only to forget them soon after.  When dream content is stored in our short-term memory, we may begin to store it in long-term memory if we continue to ponder the dream, discuss the dream, write down the dream, or if the dream left such an impression on it that it became a catalyst for something else.

    Many people can recall a dream they had during an important time in their lives.  I, for example, had a dream I was shot through a canon and landed on my house.  Half of my body was through the roof in the attic and the other half was in the air.  This dream related to my thoughts and feelings as I graduated high school and prepared for college away from home.  I don't remember the dreams I had yesterday or last week but this dream from over 15 years ago remains with me today because it highlighted such an important change in my life and had great meaning for me.

    I have to agree with Sue on one thing, any dream or life situation that is negative we will usually remember. For some reasons the hardships/suffering/trauma also stands out more. Just like the media, the bad news and gossip for some reason gets more reads/comments.

    My memory is not good short term, however my long term memory is awesome.

    But for me that is irrelevant to dreaming.

    I always remember dreams always, I remember dreams from yesterday, or 10 years ago, whether they be positive or negative. I have a pattern to my dreams and the Holy spirit knows and usually sends me dreams/visions I can relate to and if not I look it up.

    I had a dream about my dads passing about 10 years before it happened, although at the time I did not know has it related to another future fact that came to truth. Most of my dreams are prophetic, however I give credit to God.

    I never forget a dream when I awake or any other time during the day, and never do I have to write them down. I dont rack my brain if I for some reason forgot parts of it as in that case I know its because I am not to know or its of no importance to my situation at that time.

    All my dreams are in colour. I have had dreams that have been changed (the future is not written in stone), only Gods dreams I receive do not change. He actually changed the outcome of a few of my dreams.

    I also receive many visions that are of happening now.

    I once had a dream of watching my self dream the next night and what I was going to dream about, strange but it happened.

    So yes it is possible to remember dreams through long term memory.
