How to Remember Your Dreams

Here are some simple things you can try for remembering your dreams better.

1. Plan ahead

The first thing to think about is that just before you go to sleep have the intention to remember your dreams in the morning when you wake up. Because as soon as you wake up, it’s as though a little program starts in the head that reminds you to try to remember what you have been dreaming about.  Normally the mind comes in and says ‘get up, work, shower’, whatever it is. If you’ve thought about that beforehand it’s become a routine. So what you need to do is to kind of re-educate yourself to think about remembering dreams when you wake up rather than other things.

2. Keep still when you wake up

The next step is to keep still as soon as you wake up, don’t move – you’ll find it much easier to remember your dreams in the morning if you do this, because as we wake up, the astral body hasn’t quite locked into the physical one and the dream memories are easier to hold on to.

3. Try a mantra to remember more

Thirdly, if you think you have exhausted all possibility of remembering your dreams in the previous way pronounce the mantra RAOM GAOM. A mantra, like all sound, affects the psyche, the sounds of this mantra help in dream recall, keep pronouncing it over and over like this: Raaaaaooooommmm Gaaaaaooooommmm, see whether you prefer to say it in your mind or aloud. It really works.

4. Keep a dream journal

Finally, keep a dream journal/diary on the side of the bed and after you’ve remembered your dreams write them down in your diary. You’ll then have a record of your dreams which you can go back over and study, and the more that you study dreams, the more you begin to understand them. If you don’t write them down, then you really forget them, even though sometimes you may think that you’ll remember an important dream, before you know it, it’s gone – you’ve lost the details and everything. So it’s very useful to keep a dream diary, write in it soon after you wake up and have remembered your dreams.

In this way you’ll start to think about your dreams. And when you think about them, you put the process of remembering them into that little program in the mind, it becomes part of your daily routine then and it’s much easier. it’s like training for anything else, once you actually start doing it and get into it, it becomes automatic.

There’s another little exercise you can do, it’s like a dream recall, but it’s like a dream recall of the day. At the end of the day, just briefly go back over the day and that will help you to crystallize in your mind the things which have happened, which may even be significant. And if you want, you can write them down. This helps to train the memory in this type of recall and gets us to reflect upon the day.

Now, the thing to watch when you look at what’s happening in the day is to look not just at the things that you’re doing, but also to look at the emotional states you had. And, if you can, see if you can spot how they influence dreams. It’s these states which, if they’re strong enough, produce many of the dreams, so it’s the states which are important. If you’ve had a event in the day for example, and you’re looking back over that day, look at your inner states as well.

By remembering dreams you can see lots about yourself you could otherwise miss, and can recall useful information that you may have had such as spiritual teachings. There’s all sorts of symbols in dreams, they are not just coming from the subconscious, and you can even learn from the subconscious itself because in dreams you can see things that are inside you that wouldn’t normally come out.

What you discover can not only help you to bring positive change to your daily life, but you can also look at what’s happening within you to see the inner states that cause problems. If you do this work enough you can also reduce and get rid of lots of negative and problematic inner states, which not only brings benefits in day to day living but gets rid of those problematic states subconscious in dreams too, and in that way you’ll gradually improve spiritually and your dreams will become clearer and free of all that subconscious mudle.
