Interpretation is important but first, there has to be recollection. Don't you hate that feeling when you know a dream is there at the edge of your memory, and yet the more you reach for it, the more it reseeds into that forgotten dream zone.

It is imperative to remember your dreams so that you can interpret them. And someday perhaps, you can learn to direct your dreams as you dream them. Yes, this can be done.

Here Is How to Remember Your Dreams

  • Begin by intending to remember your dreams.
  • Set this intention every night before bed.
  • Have a paper and pen within easy reach.
  • During the dream state, you will be aware of your intention to hold onto it.

When you wake up in the morning, or at any interval, do not move, stay very still and become aware of your dream state and stay in that place between asleep and awake. Remain still, and in the same position as you woke up while observing the lingering feelings of the dream. Relive your dream all the way through without moving in any way.

When you have a good hold on your dream, gently reach for the pen and paper. Write in the dark, stay in your twilight state. As you write the dream down, your memory of the dream becomes more detailed and clear. As you are writing, it is important to write just neutral as if telling someone else's story. Very important not to analyze or change the dream in any way. Simply write the information. Keeping a journal of your dreams in this way for several weeks will train you to easily remember your dreams.

Close the journal and don't revisit this page of your journal until we talk next. Keep this dream journal for 7 mornings.

Sweet Dreams...see you in 7 days.
