      Dream recall

      Ever since I discovered the topic lucid dreaming, I was instantly able to recall more of my dreams. Infact, now i wake up automatically between 2am and 3am, 5am and 6am, and is able to write details of my dreams[varying how detalied i remember] and go right back to sleep. I can have more of these cycles out through the morning, depending on how long i want to sleep. (One cycle=sleep approx. 2-3 hours, wake and recall dreams)

      I was never able to recall dreams before(very rare occasions), and certainly never woke up automatically after each dream. What can be the reasons for this? Is it possible i become lucid and then wake up immediately not remembering i became lucid? I get weird sensations at the instance i see the dreamjournal on my desk( or i dont know when exactly really) like "that was a dream" or "why didnt i realize it was a dream".

      Or is it just the extremely increased focus on lucid dreaming that is making my subconscious? mind do this?

      Long post, but i am a curious soul =)

      Waking up after each dream is part of your autosuggestion. In fact, there are a couple of threads out there that explain some ideas to try and get yourself to wake up after each dream, so I'd say it is pretty cool that you're able to do it effortless. Now is time to tap into that opportunity by coupling the "waking up" with an LD technique... such as WILD or WBTB. I'm no expert, but you may want to research a bit into that.

      Same thing happened to me (albeit I don't wake up that often). I went from remembering 1 or 2 dreams every week to 4 every night... though no LD yet

      Thanks you for answer! I will begin practising ADA (All-Day-Awareness), and see how it goes.

      Thats good progress you have, I have the same problem, just keep at it and you will succeed.

      Good luck!

      Basicly without getting too complex; When you start paying more attention to your dreams, your brain goes: "Aha! Gotta step it up" and more neuro connections are made, improving your memory. Just like with regular memory. Keep it up and you can remember more than ten dreams when you've slept long enough.

      When I first started getting heavy into lucid dreaming, my recall spiked. I went from 3 dreams recalled per night to over 10!! When I stopped coming to this forum, it fell drastically to around one or less per month. There's definitely a correlation between thinking about dreaming and the number of dreams recalled. If you really care about your dreams and think about them during the day, you'll remember much more.

      I honestly feel like it is backwards. Before i got into lucid dreaming i rememberd 3-4 dreams a night and then after i started it went to 1-3 a night. As of right now im remembereing a ton of dreams but im to lazy to write them down. So i forget them.

      I was always a dreamer, in childhood especially. People thought I was a little strange.-Charley pride

      That's the whole key right there. Writing them down makes all the difference and significantly increases your recall.
