Some people remember dreams with ease, yet there are a large number of people who don’t remember dreams. In this blog we look at a few ways for you to start remembering your dreams on a regular basis.

Why Bother to Remember Your Dreams?

Dreams can be a place where your subconscious mind communicates to you. It shows you what your fears and desires are. As the subconscious mind has a language of its own, you may find dreams to be confusing if you take them literally. Looking at the symbolism of dream elements may bring more clarity.

Sometimes our dream state can be a meeting place for contact with loved ones that have crossed. It’s easier for them to access the dream state for some people as the mind is quiet and doesn’t get in the way.

I’ve been seeing our waking state and the dream state as both being part of reality. It’s just our state of awareness that changes. I know this is a different way of thinking of dreams but to me it makes sense given that we are multi-sensory and multi-dimensional beings. This is not my idea, but one that I came across when reading the Wisdom Master Press books.

Here are the 3 techniques to help you remember dreams.

1. Keep a Dream Journal to Remember Dreams

I first started a dream journal many years ago. At the time, I could only remember the rarest snippets of my dreams. I would write down three or four lines every morning of what I could remember.

Soon, I was remembering more of my dreams. The act of recording them first thing while they were still fresh somehow triggered my mind to want to remember more. I started remembering three and four different dreams when I woke up.

After a few weeks of this, I had to stop. I had gone to writing from three or four minutes when I started my journal to 45 minutes worth of writing every day. That’s how much I was able to remember. I ran out of time before I had to start work.

It was interesting to look back to see if the dreams made sense as I noticed patterns and synchronicities. One thing that helped me recollect the feel of the dream better when I looked back was if I had drawn parts of the dream in my journal. They were quick sketches and doodles, but it really helped to make the dream come alive again in my mind.

2. Sleep with a Crystal to Remember Dreams

I met a friend for lunch and he pulled out a clear quartz single terminated crystal (a clear quartz with one point on the end). I asked if I could hold it to see what the energy was like. When I did, I noticed it opened my head and my crown chakra.

Then he told me that since he got it, he’d been carrying it around with him and even slept with it. The interesting thing was that he never remembered his dreams before sleeping with this crystal.

My friend didn’t program the crystal, but you can program a crystal through your intention and energy to help you remember your dreams. Put it under your pillow or by your head at night. It’s important to periodically clear your crystals of any energy it has absorbed. I share one way of programming crystals and many ways to clear crystals in Crystals for Psychic Development.

3. Self-Suggestion for Dream Recall

The best time to give yourself a suggestion to remember dreams is when you are just about to fall asleep. The mind is more relaxed and the subconscious mind can be reached easier where you can place this suggestion.

Often it takes more than one night of giving yourself the suggestion before you see results. Be patient and only repeat the one suggestion as you fall asleep.
My recommendation is to say something like “I remember dreams easily with clear detail every morning.”

Okay, one bonus suggestion. Sometimes I find that if I put my body back into the position when I first woke up and then drift off again, I can go back into a dream or I start to remember it.

Try these out and see how they work for you. Sweet dreams!

The meaning of dreams can significantly alter your view of yourself, relationships, and help you navigate through life. Some dreams contain messages about where you are in life right now. Other dreams may be more about world events.

The dream landscape is a transformational tool when approached in a way that allows the dreamer to take control of, confront, and/or understand the dream theme. [click to continue…]

We’ve all had nightmares. Those horrible dreams where we are being chased, killed, or watch suffering.

spirit pets

We love our pets just like people. They are forgiving, unconditionally loving and unfortunately, have a shorter lifespan.

What happens when they die? Do they cross over to the other side right away? Do pet spirits come back to see us? Will they be there to greet us when we die? And what about the question of reincarnation and past lives?

I remember reading about a woman who was in the hospital waiting to die. Her cat had passed into spirit already. Every night this woman would dream of her cat running [click to continue…]

Psychic

8am Monday morning. This morning I woke up feeling unsettled from a dream I had. In my dream, I was wearing a white wedding dress but it had a black veil.

Like most mornings, I tuned in psychically to decipher the meaning of my dreams. Here’s what I do. [click to continue…]
