When and if you dream, do you remember your dreams and, if so, do you dream in color?
I really never remember if I even dream or not. It is rare that I do remember a dream, and if I wake up and think about it, but then when I fall back asleep, I cannot remember any details of said dream. In my lifetime, I only remember two very vivid dreams, one as a child that I had over and over, and another one as an adult, of which I would love an interpretation.
Normally, I dream maybe a few times a month. Usually, I remember if I think back on it right when I wake up. There are plenty of dreams I recall and I always dream in color.
Thanks so much for the answer, Iburmaster. I must dream each and every night, but I just do not remember any dreams, unless I wake up and really think hard on them, but when I fall back asleep, I seem to not be able to remember the dream at all.
Yep. Thinking back right after you wake is sometimes the only way to remember.
I don't remember my dreams as often as I used to, but when I do yes, they are in color. Like you, once awake the details that minutes ago were so vivid, fade almost instantly.
I dream a lot during my sleeps.
I do remember them as well very clearly like a movie even LOL.
I see the dreams in colors and that also i can well remember very nicely.
Hi, I dream a lot as well and usually remember vividly on waking. But I have to write it down in my dream diary/waking thoughts book on waking or I would forget! I usually dream in colour. Happy dreaming
Hi Anna Haven, thanks for answering the question! That is a good idea to write it down. I will keep a notepad and pen next to my bedside table, so I will remember the details later, when I do dream, which is rarely nowadays or I don't remember.
If you wish to remember your dreams more it helps to lay in place when you first get up. Try concentrating on what was just transpiring before you opened your eyes. If it was very interesting write it down. Sometimes just acknowledging to yourself you would like to remember your dreams also helps like a self-fulfilling prophesy.
I almost always dream in color. If I have dreams in black and white that usually means to me that I'm not seeing things for what they are.
Thanks so much, Maggie, this is helpful. I know I must dream? Every now and then I do remember dreaming, but then forget the whole thing later on. I will try as you have suggested. Thanks so much! Oh, I did not know that about the black & whi
I only sometimes dream in color or that I remember I did. Sometimes I know I have dreamed but all day long it is just on the tip of my memory but won't come through. There is nothing better than good dreams, I find I am so relaxed and do not want to wake up. At least once I dreamed how many kittens my cat would have and it was right. Now I see no importance in that but you have to wonder what we may really know in a subconscious.
Hi Faith, I'm a big dreamer, I dream every night, sometimes 2-3 different dreams. I dream in color and remember them most of the time. As it is mentioned in here already, it is a good thing to write them down.
What you can do is, before you open your eyes, remind yourself what did you dream about. It takes practice, but by doing this you will learn to remember your dreams.
I dream in color. I rarely remember my dreams, but I do sometimes. If I remember the dream, it's usually because something really momentous happened in it.
Hi nanderson500, thanks for answering the question. I rarely remember too unless, as you stated, something out of this world happened, and then I may only remember it for just a minute or two and fall back asleep and then when I wake up it's gone.
Yes, I can remember most of my dreams and they are in color. I find that if I think about my dreams before I get out of bed and get distracted, I will remember some of the dream.There were times I would be awaken during a dream and if I concentrated hard enough, I could go back to sleep and continue into the same dream.
Its easy to think of dreams as a sort of video that you watch in your head, so to ask about color is a valid question. You can also think of dreams as the brain processing all the data from the previous waking period.
This would be sight (and color), sounds, touch, taste; and then there's things like pain, emotion (good/bad, strong/weak), memories, and all the things that you have thought about during the day. As humans our dominant sense is sight, but dreams are this complicated mish-mash of all these things.
So dreams are difficult to remember precisely because they are not just visual but composed of all these different ways that the brain thinks. Therefore the dreams that we find easiest to remember are the ones in which the brain is processing a lot of visual imagery (and color), as sight is the sense that humans process and remember best.
I am an avid dreamer which has led me on a quest to discover what some of my dreams may mean! Yes I dream in colour the majority of the time, when I do dream in black and white, that can be a heads up that something may be trying to distract me. As many of the other hubbers have mentioned, it is imperative to have a Dream Journal beside your bed so that you can begin to record your dreams, this really does help with dream recall. Always great to date them, put as many details as you can remember down, particularly people, animals, places etc and write down how you felt in the dream i.e. your emotions - there is usually a residue of how you felt in the dream upon awakening that can be a huge clue into what the dream is saying and often it is a good idea to give them a title, that will often tell you what the whole gist of the dream is actually about. Our dreams are mostly connected to what is happening in our current set of circumstances so the one you had as a child could be relevant to whatever was happening at the time or prophetic - obviously depending on the whole context of the dream - the same for the one as an adult - feel free to send your dreams into me if you like - a little snowed under at present, but I will get to them www.dreams.org.nz .....and yes it is free!
