I've always had dreams on a regular, if not daily basis. My dreams were always vivid, if a little silly sometimes. I've never been a lucid dreamer though.

Anyway, in the last 3 weeks or so, I haven't had one dream. My lifestyle hasn't changed, and I'm not under more stress than usual.

Does anybody know what could cause this?

Three weeks is not that long. I wouldn't trip.

I notice I dream "better" when I drink less coffee during the day and turn off the TV before falling off.

It also helps with sleep paralysis.

Everyone dreams nightly, even when we don't remember our dreams. The key is less about dreaming more (we dream consistently every time we get quality sleep) and more about remembering the dreams you're having on a nightly basis.

Changes in diet, medication, stress levels, etc. can all make dreams more vivid (and therefore memorable), as well as said changes can make dreams less vivid and therefore more easily forgettable. In training for lucid dreaming, trainees are told that remembering their dreams is key -- so how do they do it?

Keeping a dream journal is one of the best ways to remember dreams. Get a pen and paper and put it beside your bedside nightly. Upon awakening, jot down absolutely anything you can remember about your dreams -- even small things. The more you document daily, the more you'll remember your dreams nightly.

Even if you don't get any good advice from your posting . .

You've got a darn good title for a country song!

Dreams are always there, it is your subconscious, remembering your travels takes conscious programming. I drink an 8 ounce glass of water to hydrate and allow for the flow to my subconscious and before I go to "sleep" I program my consciousness to remember.

You know,when i changed the position of my bed,it helped me.I started having more dream recall after that again.Of course it may be coincidence,but i guess it cannot hurt to try it,if practically possible.I honestly don't see how a bed's position could influence dream recall-yet it did help me.

You will always dream, several times at night , the problem is your forgetting them.
Eat heaithy , When I eat a lot of crap I usually don't remember my dream, it seems to make a hell of a difference if I eat just fruit and vegitables.. Basically do everything that's good for your mind and body , there's also certain herbs which can enhance your dreams ,make them more vivid and easy to remember, Calea Zacatechichi is one which is a mexian herb , it really works and has no other effect ( at least to me ) than giving you crazy dreams the night you take them. I had a dream I was in a underwater city and it still feels real thinking back to it now haha

Also if you get to much sleep ,there's a good chance you won't remember your dream, try waking up during the night and going back to sleep and you should remember your dream easier

It is highly likely that the intensity (and more controversially, the significance) of your dreaming is linked to your brain's production of its own '___'.

Supplementing with the precursors of the process and herb that contain activators of the enzymes in the pathway normally helps me.

Here is a link with lots of good info.Be warned that other discussions on that forum is around using chemicals recreationally, if this is not your thing, or if your job would froun on sites like that, DON'T CLICK!!!
www.dmt-nexus.me...

A good place to start would be a good B complex a few hours before bed time and 5-htp, L-Methionine and/or Melatonin (and SAMe if you afford it) just before bed. The Choline in Lecitin would help as well, have an omelet for dinner


A double or triple dose of 3mg melatonin is quite safe, and always switches my dreaming from incidental to entertainment level, sometimes so intense that I need a sleep after the night's movies


Happy dreaming!

You will not dream if you do not sustain REM sleep. There can be a number of things that interfere with REM, sleep apnea being the most common. Additionally, you should not regularly recall your dreams outside the very last bit before waking. If you are constantly recalling dreams, this can also be a sign that you are waking frequently from REM sleep (again, commonly caused by apnea). A normal person will dream in several periods throughout the night, but then forget the dreams as the sleep stage exits REM. This is why you should only be recalling the last bit of dreaming before waking for the day, and if you are waking from a lesser stage of sleep, perhaps not at all.

A lot of people I know say that they can't remember their dreams when they use that.

If you want to remember your dreams, cut down on toxins. That's what causes you not to remember them.

When I eat nothing but organic fruits and nuts and only drink pure water, I can literally remember hours of my dreams from the night before. Not only that, but I become quite lucid in them too.

Exactly...People who do not remember their dreams enjoy an uninterrupted sleep,because they don't frequently wake up to recall them.

I hardly ever remember my dreams but since quitting smoking and wearing a nicorette patch I have had the most vivid dreams of my entire life, only on nights ive had the patch on that day.

So there you go, wear a nicorette patch lol you will have some crazy dreams.
