      My recall is gone, can anybody help?

      Lately, I've had really terrible recall, and I can't remember most of my dreams.
      I used to have really good recall, but it's just gone now.
      What are some good recall tips?
      I need some help.
      Thanks in advance!

      I recently had a dry spell, and it was suggested to me that I should write down what happened that day as waking recall, and that activity would help with dream recall, and it is working very well! It also has the added bonus of then having a written account of what happened the previous few days which I can review, and I can usually understand better where the dream I just had originated.

      Listen to JoannaB! Also remember to not stress over it! Recall will come back for sure!
      By the way, has anything in your life, especially sleeping schedule-wise, changed before your recall dropped? Have you been stressing over something? If so that might also be the case of recall drop.
      And for more ways to work on recall here is a good thread to check out: http://www.dreamviews.com/dream-sign...ompendium.html

      Check out that link scionox posted!

      Also, most dreams that you remember, you remember from waking up from them, so the more that you wake up in the night, the more dreams you can recall. I would recommend learning how to use intent to wake up at any time at night and do this a few times for a natural WBTB, it will improve your recall like crazy, and your WBTB attempts. It is a great thing.

      I also wasn't recalling dreams but yesterday i decided to do a mantra repeating it in my mind while i was laying in my bed with my eyes closed ready for sleep. And it worked.
      i just said "i remember my dreams" many times.

      I also back some years ago when i practiced journaling. i also used alarms. 3 times a night. Yes. i don't know if that's what the book said but that's what i thoguht it said so i did it. I went to slep like at 10 so i set up alarms at 4.5hours afger, 6 hours after and 7.5 hours after.

      yeah i did it 3 times. and guess what. I remembered my dreams. 3 times( 3 dreams). It didn't always worked but many times it would work. However, i don't know if 3 times was good to do. cause i wasn't getting enough sleep i'm guessing.

      But you can choose whichever you want. or just wake up 2 times. like you could just do the 4.5 hours after... or you can do the 4.5 hours after and the 7.5 hours after.
      By the way, the reason you do it at those intervals is cause the book i read said something about every 90 minutes you dream or something.
      and the later hours are deeper so your sleep deepness or something is deeper so that's why 4.5 or 7.5 or 6.5 hours after.

      I would do 4.5 and 7.5 again everyday but i have health problems and i just wake up bymself at 3:40 or something every night so i don't need an alarm. But so far that has gotten me dream recall.

      Thanks for replying!
      and surprisingly, I've been having some good recall in the past few days!
      What helped me a lot, was thinking about dreams before going to sleep, like what the post above me said.
