      Remembering more than 1 dream a night

      Hi. I'm fairly new to lucid dreaming and am currently trying to boost my dream recall. I can remember 1 dream per night but that's it. I'll only remember the dream I was having when I wake up. Are there any techniques for remembering dreams you had before the last one?

      If you can only remember the last dream you had before waking up the logical course of action would be havin multiple last dreams before waking up. You can do that by 1) drinking a lot of water before going to bed 2) Telling yourself that you will wake up after every dream 3) setting your alarm clock. When you wake up during the night write down a few notes and go back to sleep again (or do WBTB). In the morning you can remember all the dreams by looking at the notes.

      I've had the same problem, and my alarm is NO help what so ever. It's far too loud, and jolts me awake so that I can't remember anything! Most of the time I still remember one dream a night, though, which is much, MUCH better than I was doing before, which was one dream every few weeks.

      There are many things for you to try. I find that the more sleep I get the more dreams I remember. Maybe you should try and get a few hours.

      There are so many things that influence this. Your environment, mood; everything. So toy around with basically whatever you think will have a positive effect!

      Probably once you get used to writing down that one dream every day, you'll be able to remember more and more as things follow. Practice makes perfect. (or at least better)

      99.99% of the teenage population does or has tried smoking pot. If you have and you've enjoyed it, copy & paste this into your signature line. Everyone else, you're lying!

      I recalled 7 dreams tonight, all different. I drunk alot of water, and printed out and read this wiki. In your dream journal, keep as detailed as possible, and use a special color for the writing, like blue, so you remember it clearly. And really, you can't expect to remember a bunch of dreams when you first start. Practice makes perfect,

      Thanks for the tips. I work from home so get plenty of sleep (8-9 hours a night). I don't have a problem remembering dreams I wake up from (e.g. setting alarm), I want to be able to remember other dreams from throughout the night. I'll try out some of your tips and let you know how it goes. Chris

      I recalled four dreams last night, and about five fragments. When I woke up, I couldn't remeber any of my dreams. But for some reason, I thought of something that sorta triggered a memory of one dream, then they all came back. Sorta like if you have a really good expierience, but you forget exactly what happened, occasionally if you hear a sound, see something, or feel something that was related to the expierience, you suddenly remeber exactly what happened. Since these triggers culd ocur any place, it's always good to ahve a bit of paper and a pen with you so you can note what you remeber, then expand on it in your journal.

      Last night I managed to remember 3 dreams.... but that's a boring story how a did. I only remembered 2 dreams at the start, but the 3rd one (well, it's still vague anyway) came whooshing into my head about 20 minutes ago.

      I teach most of my friends how to LD and the first step is definitely to get a dream journal. I have one right by my bed. One thing I tell them to do is to sometimes make up other dreams in your journal that didnt happen but visualize them how you would a dream. This gets your immagination going and you when you go to bed you have a tendency to switch from dream to dream and remember them better.

      Good luck!

      yah drinking a lot of water before sleeping and keeping a dream journal
      is a really good idea to recalling dreams. like the other night i had a freaky dream about me and my homies getting followed by a demonic spirit and then all my other dreams went along with it. it was crazy.
