A Few Basic Dream Recall Steps

Okay, this dream recall thing is strange. Do you have it down or do you still find them sliding away in the morning like they never happened at all?

This week I have played with a variety of techniques and have found a few to be helpful. So, I thought I would share them with you. If you have any others, please feel free to mention them.
Steps for Recalling Dreams

  1. When you awaken from a dream, do not turn over. This apparently causes the mind to also turn away from the dream. I cannot find the direct citation for this, but know it was in some Association for Research and Enlightenment materials.
  2. Play the dream back in your mind immediately. Do not let other thoughts get in the way of this.
  3. Playing the dream back should be the first thing you think about before anything else. Keep the mind focused. I sort of put this in here twice because it is key to the process.
  4. Write down the dream immediately. More will probably be recalled as you write the dream down.
  5. Do not stress out about it. The more you try it, the easier it becomes (so they say).
