So I'd like to know: What's your method of Dream Recall? And what methods would you recommend?
Posted 08 May 2007 - 12:52 PM
Writing it down as soon as I wake up doesn't really work for me, but I guess that's individual..

I tried doing your method today Icachan when I woke up from a nap this afternoon, but my mind was confusing reality with my dream and I lost everything XD;

Usually I try not to rush when getting up, that usually causes me to forget what I was dreaming. I review what just happened in my dream little by little otherwise I may forget something if I rush the thought. (My dreams excite me some times. XD)
When I do tend to forget some or all of it I tend to think about it throughout the day which usually allows me to remember more of the dream.
When I review it for the last time I then right it down in my dream journal.
I suppose this might not work for everyone but this is the method I use.

Usually, I can't write things like dreams fast enough, so I try to use a computer if I can. Helps me get everything writtten much faster.

I sometimes get really excited about my dreams too Miss Rae (which miiight explain me not remembering today's dream from my nap XD) But usually if I forget it, I have a sense of de ja vu like T.K. and Ninja Liz-Chan
I like your idea Misaki-chan ^^ writing down notes of what you can recall and letting the dream come back to you slowly. *writes it down to try it tomorrow*
Thank you all for your replies

About 5-10 minutes in I'll start thinking about random stuff like colors, dream signs, and that feeling I get when I realize I'm in a dream and that'll help sometimes too.
Then of course I write it down. Typing preferred, I'm faster that way.

I can't really recall a lot of my dreams, though. I don't know if I just don't dream much or if they just weren't vivid enough for me to remember... although I swear, I have these dreams sometimes and I could swear I've been in the same place in another dream. o.o;

I envy you. I don't know how long it's been since I've remembered a night-time dream at all. Several years, at least
I don't remember any of my dreams for the past two weeks or so. If I DO remember i'll probably forget. I'll try to use the dream diary function more often

If you lay in bed and say "wooooooooooo" three times then you reall remember your dreams. You have to be relaxed and exhale while you do it. It is supposed to clear your mind. Yeah it sounds dumb but they said it worked. I haven't tried it yet. I don't know if I want to remeber my dreams because they hurt me sometimes. Also you don't have to say it very loud either.

I don't perticularly have a method. I sort of wish I did. I'll wake up not remebering a thing and it'll bug me all day. If I don't remeber everything at once I take a shower and see if anything comes to mind. If I don't remeber after that then I decied usually not to worry about it and that I more than likely won't ever remeber it. Though sometimes I will randomly see something and go "OH! THAT WAS IN MY DREAM" so it all depends I guess.
Yeah thats me sometimes lol.
Unfortunetly I can usually remember so much when I wake, I just forget to recored it >_<
My current dream journal is a Hello Kitty booklet that came with Happy Meals, I took a couple when I was on shift. Muahaha lol.
