discovered new dream recall technique - seems effective
March 6 2002 at 10:56 PM
well ever since i started lucid dreaming i hated the idea of a dream journal. but i kept a very good one and i know it helps. like most of you im in no mood to get up 3 times a night and start writting about dreams. but i also know how effect it is for recall and lucidity. i was thinking of a way for improving dream recall that i havent seen before. so i discovered a good way which seems to work very well. ( i do chakra exercises before bed but i dont think it matters with this ).
heres my tech:
while your falling asleep for the first time, think of the last detailed dream you had and remember. re-create the whole dream in your head. and go over all the details and act out as much as you can remember in your head. while your doing this try to focus on as much detail of the dream that you can remember.
before you know it you will be asleep:
when you wake up in the middle of the night, try to recall any dreams you just had. if you cant recall anything focus on another dream that you had recently and do the same as the first part. fall asleep.
wake up again the middle of the night.
same steps over and over...but try to focus on the dream you just woke up on as you fall asleep.
it will be easier to remember the dreams later in the night. this works great in the mourning after a while of sleeping. the first time i tried this was like 830 in the mourning. i fell back asleep doing this and had a ld. also my dream recall sucked latly so i tried it again last night and remember 3 dreams. please try it, or comment on it, and let me know. thanks..hope it helps..
