I Rarely Remember My Dreams

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 56 People

    Come Back!

    It's been a while since I woke remembering a dream, I'd say 6 months or more.  I miss waking and partially remembering a dream or being woken up by them.  I do hope they return soon.

    And when I do, I usually only remember little

    'flashs' but lately I've been dreaming alot about lions, I wonder why... haven't encountered any lions recently, in the dreams they chase people around, but they seem to ignore me. I try to warn or help people but I'm always to far away or it happens too fast.

    Any Tips On Remembering Dreams?

    I know we always dream but I rarely remember any of my dreams, and even when I do remember a dream, is slips away over the day and is gone by the end of the day unless I journalled it somehow. I really want to start remembering my dreams, anyone have any suggestions?

    Just Can't Remember 'em...

    Not sure why this is.  It wasn't always like that though.  I only remember them if something scary or spectacular happens.  I would like to remember if it's possible.  Anyone have suggestions?
