Does anyone know how to remember your dreams?
I always wake up from rather exciting dreams, but as soon as my feet hit the floor I forget them. My heart is racing and I can see images, the poof! All gone. I tried dream journaling, but there is nothing to write except for bits and pieces.
I love dreaming! And I do remember half or most of what I've dreamed about. When I woke up from a dream, I just lie down still with my eyes closed, and replay the dream I just had. And that helps me to remember the dream. This works for me. You could try doing that too. Hope that helps
Hi, if you write down in a dream diary every morning as soon as you wake up, it should help you remember. Even if it is only fragments you remember when you first start to note it down, in time if you are doing it everyday you should start to recall much more detailed memories. Happy dreaming Anna
I suppose that's something involuntary. Human psychology suggests that one can remember a dream if they had achieved REM(rapid eye movement), which is also an involuntary action, during sleep. REM is a level of sleep. Similarly, the dreams we don't remember are usually experienced during the level 2 or level 3 of sleep. It is also of great interest to know that you are often unaware of the fact that you had a dream.
Well strange you mention this certain topic, I wrote a hub on dreams.
I read that keeping a journal is the best way to remember, however being one that has dreams that foretell the future to some point I never have/had a problem with that. I still remember dreams from years ago like they were yesterday and I also have dreams that were aiding to friends.
I also dream of global events at times. So this is a rather difficult question for me. I am given dreams through the unknown. I am given messages.
You are right though, many people do not remember their dreams long enough to keep a journal. I feel that if we do not remember them then they were not important at that given time anyway.
I would not rack your brain trying to remember, if they are meant to be remembered you will. They are given to us by God/angels and given at the time we are suppose to know something.
In the bible it says, God will give dreams and visions to many just before his second coming. God chooses certain people to receive his messages through others or leads them somewhere. I believe he does this with our dreams as well.
If you are that keen on remembering them, you can always ask for help with them. (I do not know your beliefs, but just giving you an idea).
Sometimes if you mediated when you have some time alone, this helps as well.
Have a good day
Pray. Meditate. Even try drinking a glass of water because water is clarity.
Writing a diary is a good thing but if you don't have the time to write down your dreams, then you could also tell your partner or another person about your dreams or fragments of the dreams that are still in your mind. Trying to tell your dreams to another person might help to remember them. That's what I do. Writing down or speaking about your dreams can help to recall the past.

Hello there.The reason I ask is that I've been diagnosed with a condition of which one of the symptoms is poor dream recall. More importantly, the improvement of dream recall is used to determine the effectiveness of treatment. I've always assumed I was fairly typical in terms of...

Hi everyone! Do you have recurring dreams? If yes, what are they about? What do you think your dream implies? I have two of them once in a while. Firstly, I have a dream in which I am back to school and our teacher is giving out some assignments. The class is filled with students and I think that...
