I need some advice from those who have been able to achieve higher level dreaming. As a child, I was able to dream. Every night, one of my dreams had elements of the next day in it. One night, I had a dream of a conversation at the lunch table. At the end of this conversation, the girl who sat with us started crying and left. The next day, I was having lunch and remembered the dream. I knew, word for word, the conversation, and where it was heading. Not wanting to see the girl become upset, I altered the conversation. She didn't become upset, and all seemed good. From that time on, It seems I don't dream. At least I have no memory of dreaming. I probably broke a rule about interfering with the future or something. I am not sure exactly why that was the last time I could remember my dreams. Any advice on how to be able to remember my dreams again? Remember, I am not skilled in any higher level consciousness, so please keep answers as simple as you can.

Gifts come to us when needed.

Chill, relax, go with the flow.

Not only did you help the girl, you also did something kind. You benefited that day as well.

Let it come when it will.

Get a token. Something that has meaning to you, preferably something triggers memories. Keep it with you as often as possible. Have it with you when you lay down to sleep. As you drift off, focus on your token and it's ability to help you remember.

I have two tokens; a gold heart with my mother's ashes symbolizing love and a gold ring that belonged to my uncle that symbolizes will. I focus on them when I go to sleep and my dreams are pleasant and under my control.

Stephan LeBerge has done some amazing research at the Berkley dream lab. I suggest reading a book named Lucid Dreaming, by Stephan.

Try sleeping for longer periods of time and or sleeping and waking for short periods before sleeping again...

Best way to remember dreams is to have a dream journal by your bed. Train yourself to write anything from the dream the second you feel yourself awake and the memory is fresh. It will take some time for you to get the discipline, but if you can write anything..even just a few key subject words on a page, then you will remember the dream later upon looking at the paper.

Otherwise, the dream will fade from memory quickly..within a minute or so you will go from full recollection to basically not even thinking you had a dream.

Now, what the dreams mean..thats a completely different subject, but for now, just keep a log and learn to scribble (or voice if its just a little recorder) anything from the dream..even the stuff you think is insignificant.

Ditto, read Stephen LaBerge. Every technique you need for lucid dreaming is in that book.

The best way to remember dreams in my experience is to remind myself, "I will remember my dreams". Say it out loud to yourself several times before turning out the light. Put a sign on the wall saying, "I will remember my dreams", if necessary, to remind yourself to say it. Give it 2-3 nights and I guarantee, you will remember your dreams, at least for one night.

Write down your dreams every time you remember, and I guarantee, before long you will have so many dreams to write down you won't have enough time in your day!

I'm sure you haven't broken any rules. God doesn't make silly rules IMO!

Good luck and happy trails.

Definitely watch out for what you eat within the hours before bed time. It's best not to eat anytime near sleep time at all, not even a calorie.

I agree with the other suggestions to write down your dreams as soon as you awake. Lucid dreaming isn't difficult once you figure it out, a few great athletes have admitted to inducing lucid dreams to practice their sport. May not train muscle memory, but it helped mentally for them.

Try taking melatonin, by the way. Believe me on this one. Experience.

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately I can't do a journal. I have no indication that I even dream. It is like a light switch turns off, and I am asleep, and immediately it turns on again and I am awake the next morning. The very rare occasions that I am aware of dreaming, I am normally startled out of sleep. I remember for a second I was dreaming, but I have no idea about the content. It is like seeing the last frame of a TV show, then it is gone. In under a second, trying to remember, it just disappears. It is like having the answer to a question, being distracted, and not remembering there was a question in the first place. I have gone to bed repeating to my myself to remember, then I wake up like normal. I almost feel as if my dreams are being blocked somehow.

I have several dreams about my future. But my dreams were never only a day in advance.

The dreams I would have of my future were always months, and sometimes even years apart from when they happen, from when I had them.

My theory is these dreams are situations you will come into in your life. But these situations are very unique. They bring about a new thought into your mind, or a new way of thinking.

However the easiest way I found out how to remember my dreams, and even take control of myself in the dream, is to set an array of wake up alarms. Randomly between 50 minutes and an hour and a half.

Right now my alarm schedule looks like this.

1. 8:20 am.
2. 9:50 am.
3. 11:10 am.
4. 1:40 pm.

Mind you I fall asleep at 6 am.

By setting my alarms this way I have wild dreams that I can recall.

I used to keep a dream log of the crazy things I witnessed in my dreams.

Try that. It is very simple, but you have to commit to it.

I am not an expert and this is why I also want to ask a question. Is there any possibility that my friend contacted me while commiting suicide? I was dreaming about myself hanging on the hook (propably dead) and in the same moment he've hanged himself in his home. Next day I find out he is dead. Does he wanted to tell me something? Or is it me who had a prediction?
Thanks if some of You would answer, I feel like crazy from that time, one and a half year.

just because you experienced that future contact/event in the night-time does not make your non-ordinary state of a 'visionary experience' as being a 'Dream'

you could have been having an out-of-body or else a astral projection experience...
there is also the hypnotic state... then there's being in a deep Alpha state

edgar Cayce... actually went into a trance state but for brevity sake the popculture called him the sleeping prophet like he was in a dream state or something

research further & deeper, your 'dream' may be something else entirely....
and chasing that 'Dream' re-enactment might just be running-in-circles

I don't know if that helps any

I tried everything above, and actually remembered about a minute of a dream this morning. Wow, do i have strange dreams. Thank you again. I will keep working on it.

Keep at it. It takes time.

I had a weird one, too. I dreamed I was a some sort of banquet with my deceased mother. We were seated next to Bill and Hillary Clinton. Not being a Clinton fan, I was pretty stand-off-ish. But, eventually, I started to chat with them and found them to very intelligent, charming, sociable, pleasant, knowledgeable, all that good stuff. Eventually, I figured I should take a selfie with Hillary. I have never taken a selfie in my life. I couldn't find my phone, which should have been in its case; someone must have stolen it.

I spent the rest of the dream trying to find my cell phone. During the course of my search, other items came up missing. My car keys, my wallet, etc. I remember some guy with a thick New York City accent felt sorry for me and offered me $100 as compensation for my missing phone. I don't recall if I took the money or not. Eventually, the other things started re-appearing. The keys were in my pocket, the wallet was in my pocket, never found the phone in time to get a selfie with me and Hillary, though.

I see this dream as a failure of the ring token. If I can't find my car keys, wallet, cell phone, and I find the Clinton's to be exemplary human beings, I am not in control of that dream.

At least I wasn't being chased through a maze by monsters.

My dreams are always a bit weird but today I had a dream I was in a hotel with my missus who was hanging out with a man who looked like a girl and then he changed into another young man and a fat bloke would pop into my hotel room and use the bathroom but then suddenly it seemed there was a story going online for TV and these lovely chilled music started playing and the words " day after day....they all fall down " stared playing, so when I woke up I remembered the tune and in the future going to get my mate who makes Dance music help recored it.

My other dream or nightmare happened when I was watching a ferry sink and the feeling of despair watching it go upside down and other people were watching it and then I noticed the huge size of the waves coming towards the seaside town a bit like the film" Day After Tomorrow" and me and the rather sexy looking girl started to run for higher ground...and then I woke up.God I never what to see that in my life.

It has now been over 10 days, and aside from one initial success, I still can't seem to remember my dreams. I am aware that I was dreaming, and for a half a second remember the last frame of the dream. Then it disappears like it was torn from my memory. Anything else I should try?

808Funk- I have noticed your wave dream has been showing up a lot lately on end times videos. Might be something to it.

Victor- While reading your post, I had a flash in my mind. I don't know how to explain it. I now know I have dreams about my deceased father, but I still don't remember them, or know how I know. Frustrating....

I don't know what token you selected, but an idea occurred to me.

Get a pocket sized note pad. Keep it with you whenever you can. Never write anything in it. Whenever you need to remember anything, pull out the note pad and visualize the words or numbers on the pad. Really focus on the words appearing on the paper. Grocery lists, phone numbers, reminders, whatever. With practice, you should be able to remember what you visualized on the pad just as easily as if you had written it.

Once having the note pad with you becomes second nature, you should start seeing it in your dreams. When you do, make note of what you want to remember in your dream. When you wake up, look at the note pad and see if you can remember from there.

Keep in mind, though, people have several dreams over the course of the night. Sometimes they flow one into another. Sometimes one stops and another begins some time later. Usually the ones you remember are the last ones you had for the night. You can remember the end of it and back-track to the middle, but the beginning is elusive.

I am humble so I don't label myself an expert. But if you need to explore the dream world try these things that work for me. Dream during the day. Lay yourself down - slightly sleepy but not bam I'm out sleepy. Focus on nothing - get your eyeballs going back and forth neath closed eyes. Entertain any any all weirdness that pops up under closed lids...Poof! You're the dream world or you might have an OBE - what I described can get you to either...record all of that.

Ninjitsu memory exercise - Collect 7 different coloured stones put them in a box with a lid place them in an order e.g 5th stone blue look at them for 30 seconds close the lid and wait for 1 minute then recall the order open the lid and see change the order and repeat increasing the number of stones and time you wait

weirdly this might help
