Improving Your Dream Recall

Now that we have explored the many possibilities of dreams, the only thing left for us to do is actually recalling our dreams! This proves to be a difficult task though especially when half the time, we totally forgot about our dreams. Good news is, our ability to recall dreams can be improved, if we really put some effort into it!

As theorized by dream experts, our “dream memory” is different from our “waking memory”. Must be the reason why we find it hard to remember our dreams by the time we’re fully awake. This can also be associated to how our subconscious and conscious mind operates. Aside from that, dreams usually manifest in fast sequences that maybe the mind finds it hard to keep up with, much less process it to bits.

On the other hand, improving your dream recall can also boost your imagination and creativity. It’s like making your subconscious mind a little more active than it normally would. Intuition was also said to be notably sharpened when dream recall is improved. Here are some tips on how you can improve your dream recall. Just remember that it takes practice to perfect this ability:

•    Have a strong desire to remember. Dream recall does not come naturally to an adult person and the mind is not made for recalling dreams so you need to have a strong desire to make it work.
•    Learn how to really focus. The reason why an average adult finds it hard to remember his dreams is that the mind is most probably clouded with things we do everyday, making it harder to focus entirely on our dreams when we sleep. Try to get everything out of your mind prior to sleeping.
•    Practice makes it perfect. If you did not succeed the first time, try again next. Keeping a dream diary during the first few nights will also help you keep track of your dreams.
