Well there are some things you can do. Like if you mess with your sleep patterns, like get up at 2 or 3 in the morning and stay up a little while
then go back to bed, thinking about dreaming and how you want to remember one. Keep a piece of paper by your bed to write down anything right when
you wake up. Try to wake up slowly. Open your eyes slowly, take control of your breathing slowly, get up slowly and do all you can mentally to calm
your thoughts and hold onto the memory of what the dream was. This takes some effort, but probably necessary to get you kick started into dreaming.
The stupidest thing, like bumping your knee on the bedside table can make you forget a whole dream. Or worrying about what you need to do that day.
Then you would have to take more time and effort to recover or recall the experience.
When I was younger, before I was even into dreaming, one thing that absolutely guaranteed dreams would be staying up all night playing computer games.
Once you go to bed your body is exhausted, but your mind is still going 110%. So you go to sleep before your mind can slow down! If you can
reproduce that sort of scenario you will without a doubt have dreams... or something crazy like that.
