Remembering OUR DREAMS
We all move through these stages - both NREM and REM - each night when we go into "la-la land" during our sleep.
Even though you can´t remember your "nightly journey" you still dream every night.
How can we increase our ability to remember our nightly journey?
When you go to bed at night tell yourself that you want to
remember your journey when you wake up in the morning. When you are waking up lie still and let the images and symbols come to you. One of
the reasons people do not recall their nightly journey is interference from other
thoughts competing for your attention when you wake up.
Let your first thought upon awakening be, What did I take part in? What did I see and experience?
If, instead, you start thinking about specific
work tasks you need to get done, shopping you have to do, what to wear etc. it will just create too much interference. It will be much harder
to recall nightly journey.
If you recall a scene try to recall what happened before that scene. How
did you arrive at that scene? Try noticing what mood
you are in - do you feel love, fear, joy, curiosity, happiness etc. Just
lie in bed being drowsy from your sleep and let the images come to you.
