Why cant I remember my dreams?
Really simple answer there, you haven’t trained your brain to remember them. Some people will even sware that they don’t dream, but that is completely false of course. Science has proven that everyone dreams. You dream is 90 minute cycles and that repeats throughout the whole night or sleep cycle.
Many people trained themselves from childhood to not remember their dreams, especially if they were going through a period of having nightmares. Nightmares are truly a wealth of information though, and when analyzed provide invaluable information to the dreamer about underlying emotional issues that the person should bring to the conscious mind to sort out.
Remembering your dreams will take a little work on your behalf but its certainly not difficult to do so. First you need to think about wanting to remember them several times a day, to get that intention activated into your subconscious mine. Then you want to disrupt your normal sleep cycle so that you wake up at odd times. Set your alarm clock for the middle of your sleep cycle, and make sure the alarm clock is across the room so you have to get up out of the bed to turn it off. Take a moment to think about what you were just doing and see if any dream details began to show up. Try this for a few nights, and if you do not have success, then set the alarm clock for different time, perhaps 2 hours before you are to wake up normally.
You need to keep a notepad or a handheld recorder beside your bed so that you can quickly jot down any memories of dreams as they come to you. While you are relearning the ability to remember your dreams, you will certainly forget any dream memories if you do not record them as soon as they come to you. In time, with this exercise you will began to remember again. Then you can begin the really fun part of figuring out what they mean. If you stay interested long enough then you can explore having lucid dreams which are the most exciting thing you can imagine. To have a dream and be 100 percent fully conscious while you are dreaming is the most powerful and liberating feeling in the world. Lucid dreams are certainly not of mythology, as millions of people have these, including myself. Anyone can learn to have these with a little more effort and practice. Information is plentiful on the internet for this as well.
But the first step to remembering your dreams is where to begin. Dreams are a natural and important part of the humans balance of mind and body. Dreams help to bring knowledge to the conscious mind about emotional or physical sore spots. Even if the direct interpretation is not made, the information is still absorbed. Dreams are to your health as a stethoscope is to a doctor.
