Remember Your Dreams Easily With 1 Simple Trick

Some people think they never dream, others know they dream all the time because they have developed ways to remember dreams. But if you think you don’t dream, think again, because we all dream; it’s what helps us figure out the problems of the day.

Unfortunately, the area of the brain where dreams exist has no memory attached to it. That’s why it’s hard to remember your dreams – they aren’t put into your memory. Therefore, if you’re not consciously aware that you did indeed have a dream and try to remember it, you will not get benefit from the dream.

Dreams are important because they bypass your conscious mind. The conscious mind is what causes us to doubt ourselves and stops us from doing a lot of things that might be beneficial to our lives, but because there are so many questions asked by the conscious mind, it’s hard to move on and find more success in life.

But our dreams occur in the subconscious; there are no questions asked, no concerns raised, just good quality information and problem solving that would be very helpful – if only we could remember them.

The subconscious dreaming part is what I addressed in my book called “Directed Dreaming.” Your dreams can work on whatever they want, or you can make them work on a specific problem or concern. It really is up to you how your dreams can benefit you, but the most important part is to remember your dreams so you can benefit from this information.

You’ve all heard that it’s important to keep a dream journal by your bed. Yes, the old dream journal advice again! But this is the only way you can remember your dreams for the long term. Believe me; I’ve tried it the hard way. I once thought a dream was so important, and so clear that I repeated it to myself about five times before going back to sleep. Then every time I woke up I tried to remember it again.

But this really is the hard way to remember dreams, because in the morning, I still only remembered half of it, and lost a lot of sleep just trying not to lose the information I had received.

So the dream journal is definitely important. I like to use the one that comes with the lucid dreaming kit, not only because I can type much faster than I can write, but also because I can look back and see if there are any themes in the messages I’m receiving.

So maybe if I have a recurring dream about running down a track, it MIGHT be telling me that I’m on the right track in life – which is important for me to know right now. I made a short video on lucid dreaming which includes a sample of the dream journal software that comes with it, so I’ll attach it below.

You can get the Lucid Dreaming Kit here.

OK, so what exactly is that one little trick that will ensure you remember your dreams? It’s to lie perfectly STILL after you wake up, and make a conscious effort to remember them! Don’t do a thing but try to remember what you were just dreaming about! And lay there – still – until the entire dream has been presented to you (they’re longer than you realize). THEN, get up and write in your dream journal immediately!

Just because you can now remember dreams easily when you wake up, doesn’t mean the information will stay with you unless you write it down! Try it! I was amazed at how well this one thing helped me remember dreams.

Inception Movie Lucid Dream Reality Checks With Totems

In the Inception Movie (staring Leonardo Dicaprio as Cobb) they use totems, to determine if they are in a lucid dreaming state or in their current reality. The inception totems are designed by them, and only they know the exact weight and expected outcome of the totem when they put it into play.

For example, Cobb uses a small spinning device. When he is in the real world, the device will spin and eventually stop. When in a subconscious mind dream state it will continue to spin endlessly. Everyone in the movie, as well as more than a few lucid dreamers, has their own totem which cannot be touched by anyone else – therefore if you want your own inception totem, you’ll have to make it yourself!

While I’ve never heard it called an inception totem before, reality checks are very much a part of the lucid dreamer’s world. When you’re learning how to have lucid dreams, it’s important to know exactly when you are in a dream so you can take control of the dream, and when you’re in real life – in real life you can’t jump off a building and live!

Reality checks can come in the form of a small device, as is used in the Inception movie, or they can be as simple as something you do or say to yourself that lets you know you are not dreaming anymore. A good example would be a screen saver on your computer that interrupts you every so often and makes you do a reality check. And vice versa, when you’re dreaming, you might see clocks that are upside down (hint: watch out for these in the Inception movie so you can tell when they are actually dreaming – it gets very confusing sometimes).

As you can tell, Reality checks are VERY important to the lucid dreamer, and should NOT be taken lightly. If you’re into Lucid dreaming or interested in it, you will probably like the Inception movie. I will warn you though, there is a LOT going on at any given moment so you’ll have to play close attention. It’s a thrilling action-packed movie and I enjoyed it a lot, but wished I would have planned to have a drink with my friend who went with me after – there’s just so much to discuss and talk about in the world of inception lucid dreaming. Don’t feel bad if you want to see it a second time to catch all the stuff you might have missed. . .
Feel free to leave a comment below to discuss your view of the movie.

What Animal Dreams Mean

Animal dreams are symbolic of our thoughts and emotions according to many dream theories. Animal dreams also signify our fundamental instincts. When you see an animal in your dream, it is said that the animal is communicating with you or is giving you a message.

Listed below are the most common animals that can be seen in animal dreams:

• Ants – Ants are very common in animal dreams. They indicate that something is annoying or “bugging” you. If ants are creeping all over your body in your dreams, it shows that you might have some unfinished work or you have something very important to do. Ants in dreams also represent community and hard work. When you see an anthill in your dreams, it shows that you have a family and group of friends that strongly supports you.

• Bears – Bears in animal dreams show calmness and extreme strength. Bears also represent introspection. When you see a hibernating or sleeping bear in your dream, this means that you need to do some soul searching before presenting your thoughts to the world. When you are being chased by a bear, this shows that you are running away from something and you need to face it. A bear that is standing up indicate that you need to stand up for what you believe in.

• Cats – Cats show power in females. They also deal with obscure intellect and spiritual protection. Black cats indicate concealed secrets and powers for the dreamer.

• Dogs – Dogs in animal dreams show friendship and loyalty. When a dog barks in your dream, it may show that there is a gossip about you. Dog bite shows that you may have a guilty conscience. Being attacked by a dog may indicate that you are too impulsive. Being led by a dog shows confidence.

• Elephants – Elephants in animal dreams show that you are able to get past any obstacle in your life. Elephants also show strength, control and steadfastness. When you dream that you are riding an elephant, this shows that you can be the leader in your family or any group.

• Lizards
– Lizards in animal dreams shows that you need to be careful in dealing with other people. Lizards also remind us that you need to stay on the ground in uptight situations. When you see a lizard run away from you, it means that you are scared of some situations and issues in your life.

• Hawks – Hawks represent the desire for freedom. A hawk that is in flight shows that you are ambitious with your plans. A caged hawk, on the other hand, shows that you are unable to express your feelings and emotions.

Animal dreams bring different meanings to a different people because it depends on what the person thinks and feels. If you would like to know more about animal dreams, there are many modern day dream interpreters who could help you.
