I did a search and couldn’t pull up anything completely pertaining to my topic.. so if there is another thread out there please direct me to it!

I have a horrible problem with remembering dreams. I am constantly waking up with this feeling that I have dreamt something important or meaningful but I cannot remember. Sometimes throughout the day, I will have like a “flash back” (Not full on zoning out and reliving the dream, just bits of remembrance) of my dream, but I have no clue if I dreamt it last night or 5 years ago. Does anyone have any tips on remembering dreams? Its like the second I open my eyes its all gone, like it never happened, but I get an odd feeling all the time.

Thanks (:

EDIT: When I say "important or meaningful" I mean to myself not as in I think the world is going to end (:

For me I always have the most vivid dreams when I've slept for about 6 hours, wake up, get up, then go back to sleep for about an hour.

I love remembering my dreams but it seems very hit and miss. Some nights I will remember numerous dreams very clearly and other times I can only remember little bits or nothing at all!

I do have a notepad and pen on my bedside table for the purpose of writing down my dreams the second I wake so that they don't get forgotten (as dreams tend to do after being awake a little while)

I hope you get some helpful answers to your question as I am very interested also.

Peace.

It is sometimes useful to have a pad beside you so that you can write down your dreams after awaking, you can try telling yourself to remember the dreams you have.

Hi, me and my partner are currently in the same boat. We've tried listening to 'conscious dreaming' music before we go to sleep but with no success. I'll be keeping an eye in your thread because I too would like to remember my dreams again. It's getting a bit frustrating.

I will tell you a few things I know for sure.

#1 If you drink alcohol or take medications, it will retard your ability to remember as well as affect the dreams themselves.
#2 Your age has a great deal to do with it as well..
#3 Stress will also have an affect as well.

What has your age got to do with it?

the first step is to keep a dream journal, have something right by your bed so as soon as you wake up and the dream is fresh you can write it down. later in the day if you remember more because something triggered a dream memory you can alaways go back and add to it.

the older you get the less REM sleep you have, REM sleep is when you have your dreams
