How to Improve Your Dream Recall

I’ve always been blessed with excellent dream recall, but there are many who cannot remember their dreams.  Dreams are so vitally important.  They are our direct connection to guidance that comes through to us from our angels & spirit guides.  Dreams are the place where our spirit walks when our physical bodies are asleep so we have many spiritual encounters within the realm of dreams.  Dreams help us to return to the Realm of Spirit each night & it’s important to at least be able to recall some aspect of your dreaming life upon waking. 

If you are unable to recall your dreams try these simple techniques:

  1. Keep a notebook and pen by your bed.  If you wake in the middle of the night write down anything you can recall at that time.  Even if it’s just a color or an emotion, commit it to paper AT THAT TIME.  Don’t think you can wait until morning because I can pretty much guarantee you won’t remember a thing by then.
  2. Drink a full glass of water right when you go to bed.  This will force you to have to use the bathroom at some time.  Inconvenient, I know, but it will also knock you out of your dream cycle & you will be more able to remember at least one dream, then while you’re on the toilet you can write it down 🙂
  3. Tell yourself SEVEN times as you lie down in bed, “I will recall at least one dream in perfect detail upon waking in the morning.”  Say this to yourself 7 times. It takes 5 repetitions for a statement to reach the subconscious mind for it to be able to start manifesting it for you.  This is why in my Tarot Annual Forecast Reading when I give a positive affirmation to use for each month of the year I tell my clients to repeat the affirmation a minimum of 5 times, so the subconscious can get to work on manifesting it for them as reality.  
  4.  If you’re having a problem or you have a question, you can also incubate a dream to answer it.  When you go to bed, write out your statement, such as, “I’m having problems with <name> in our relationship.  I am asking my angels & spirit guides to please give me a definite message in my dreams as to what I can do to help heal the situation.”  Again, repeat this to yourself SEVEN times, then go to sleep as usual, and remember to keep a notebook handy so you can write down any impressions you receive during the night.
