      Hola!

      Hey hows it going?
      I've just had a breakthrough last night when it comes to dreaming.
      Normally when I try to remember a dream and visualize it, I can't or it's not clear enough. But Today I had a dream where I can clearly recall most of it and it felt and looked so real. I was running through a dirt alley and I remember thinking to myself that my dreams never looked so real. Or at least I was never in that state of mind when I was dreaming. Its unbelievable everything is just how it is in real life which is awesome.

      Theres one problem though. I usually have these dreams after waking up in the morning and going back to sleep. I don't really remember the ones that occur at night time. I usually wake up to go to school at 6:30 am. Today I woke up at 6:20 and I laughed because last night I was reading about how your brain has a clock. (forgot which part of the brain) Anyways after going back to sleep for another few hours, I get waves of dreams. Ill dream for 10-40 minutes wake up for a sec then go back to sleep and dream a completely new dream. Its kind of cool but I would prefer to dream at night so That I can actually wake up and enjoy my day.

      It probably comes with time and practice. But so far remembering this mornings dreams I'm seeing that I'm making some kind of progress.

      I've also had dreams where I could jump like really high (building range) and fly but then when I try to show people I can't do it. Ill just jump like a normal person would jump... lol talk about self-confidence issues.

      Well thats some insight on me. Any comments appreciated. And I'm sure ill have some questions over the next few weeks.

      Hey there, welcome to Dream Views!

      Well done on recalling such a vidid dream.

      As you said yourself, remembering your other dreams comes with time and practice. Keep a dream journal and you'll find your recall improves quite quickly. Some people also find it handy to try and keep their eyes closed when they wake up and concentrate on remembering what they were doing through the night.

      Welcome !

      The REM period of sleep (the period during which we mostly dream) gets longer as the night goes on. So the more you sleep, the longer they get and the longer and more vivid your dreams become. That's why we get better dreams after waking up in the morning and going back to sleep.

      Feel free to ask if you have any more questions!

      Thanks. I was thinking about a dream journal, right now for the past few days I've been recalling dreams from years ago. Ill start on it today.

      It seems like it takes some effort to get a lucid dream. I know it will for a beginner like me, but what about those who have been having them for a while,
      Can they just fall asleep and when that dream comes along make it lucid instantly?

      Hello welcome to the forums. It's good that your recall seems to be getting better. I wish I could say the same for myself. Some reason my recall declined a lot since I first started journaling. That's one reason why I haven't been journaling because I can't remember any of my dreams.

      Yeah as I was writing about doing a journal I forgot one of my older dreams, so I think i'll try to keep going with out the journal.

      I saw this in someones signature and am wondering if its possible and if someone who has done it before can tell me what they experienced.

      Communicate with my sub-conscience

      I'm sure this takes a huge amount of skill/time.

      That's where I'm currently stuck too. Total catch 22. I tried to start up journaling again... no entries yet. I keep on being positive, but ya can't journal zero recall, now can you? I'm going to try to make a point to at least enter "nothing to report this morning" & still have a daily entry, maybe that'd kickstart the recall a little.

      I've never tried that, but as long as you have good dream control, you should be able to summon a represntation of your subconscious without too much trouble.

      Great news. I decided to work on my dream recall, so last night I decided to set my alarm clock about 5 hours into my sleep, and from there every hour and a half. I can recall three dreams. And pretty clearly, and I can see the images if I think about it. Im going to do this for a few more days and then see If I can remember without waking up at night. If not then Ill continue this process. One step closer to LD's!

      Welcome to the forum blackened

      Congrats on the great recall Just keep it up and your recall with get even better. 3 a night is good, stick to waking p at 5 and you will have a lucid in no time. While you are waking up early it might pay you to use the MILD technique.

      Thanks, Ill try the mild tonight just for fun. I've tried a wild before and I don't know if it worked or not
      but I was listening to some tool (to get that hypnotic mood going ) And after a while I don't know happened but I was still conscious then a second or two later I felt like the music rose in volume. Kind of like I woke up.
      This took me like 30 minutes but it felt like I had something unusual happen once I "awoke".
