Dream recall

Post # 1
Hi, everybody. Who practices dream recall? I wanted to try it,so I found an article about it, how to do it right.

The Article(you don't have to read it necessarily if you know how to do dream recall):

"1. Preparing for Bed : Try to get the body as relaxed as you can. If you have to stretch or even do Yoga all the better. You can even meditate to clear your mind, so that that you are more prepared for the next step. You don't have to eat or refrain from eating before bedtime. You may do as you like. Try experimenting with eating different foods before bedtime and see if you get any different results in the end. Make sure you have a pen and pad handy to write with next to the bed.

2. Programming : This is the most important part. When you get to that borderline sleep level (which is right before you are completely asleep) you must tell yourself over and over again that you will remember all your dreams and you will wake up after each dream and write down your experience. If you don't like having to repeat all that then try tape recording yourself saying these things. Make sure that you tape at least 10 - 15 min. worth. That should be sufficient.

3. Taking Notes : This is also very important. If you successfully wake up
after each dream, then you must write down everything you can remember in detail. Write down whether the dream was in color or black and white. This is why we will keep a pen and pad next the bed. Make sure not to put it in the bed with you. You don't want to end up stabbing yourself in your sleep. Then you must try to go right back to sleep. Keeping the pen and pad handy. Hopefully you will go right into another dream and repeat the process.

4. Reviewing the Night : Now it is time to review the night. You will be amazed at how many dreams you actually had that night! I usually find that I have 10 - 15 dreams a night and sometimes more. Everyone dreams and everyone dreams many times a night, they just don't know they do until they try something like this. Make special note of dreams that are in full-blown color, for you will want to reference them once you start studying astral projection." END

So I tried it, except for the taking notes part. It worked, I woke after every dream. Dreams weren't really long, except three of them. I was fascinated about how many dreams I had, but the thing is that didn't sleep almost at all, I felt like crap this morning. I programmed my self to woke up and I did, but there was said that you have to repeat the process after every time you wake up, but I didn't do so and still it continued. I repeated the text, saw a dream, woke up, then I didn't repeat the text, but just went to sleep, but all the night I still saw dreams and woke up every one. And it went on all night until I just an hour did something else and then went to sleep again, I saw one long dream and it stopped.
The thing is ... I want to practice more dream recall, but if every morning I will be feeling like crap I just can't do it, because I need my brain fully ready to work not asleep.
Is here someone with similar experience? Someone who can give me tips?

Personally, I'd say that you are feeling horrible because you are not used to such a sleeping cycle. That seems normal. I'd suggest that you tweak the steps taken. Instead of trying to get your self to wake up with each dream to recall them all as they happen, focus on sleeping through your normal cycle trying to recall at the least one dream a night. From there you can continue dream recollection for a while at one dream to recall and slowly work on upping the number one at a time. That could work for you and also help keeping you from feeling bad.

Oh, you could also use crystals to help enhance your dreams. Such crystas to use are amethyst, agate, malachite, scolecite, and dioptase. Just charge the crystsls withywith your energy and intent. Then place under your pillow before going to sleep.

You can dream recall anytime you just have to consentrate on it and think I would like to remember it or redream it befor you wake up becuase once you say that you go back to bed it will start off exactly were you left off.

I would agree. You do not need to wake up after each dream to remember them. I do suggest keeping a dream journal though. It is somewhat annoying to try to remember details well enough to write them down at first, but over time that will become easier and easier. I have kept a journal for two years at least, and when I started, my entries would be about half a page. After a while, it became easier to remember even the smallest of details, and now my entries range from two to five pages, per dream, often having two or three per night. Good luck ^^

Again thanks for help. I started my Dream Note Book and it is going just fine. I can write more then a page for a one dream and I have it just for 5 days. At first day I could just write one sentence, but now I even can remember more then one dream. :) And I'm glad that I have to repeat that programming sentence just 3 or 4 times and I will remember dream or dreams after I woke up. ^^

But isn't this sometimes tiresome? I mean to write down for a year or more.

Hi, this is fascinating and thanks for sharing the practice and your experiences. I have so many dreams nightly that it often feels like there is satellite television in my head. I wake up exhausted every morning because there's been more "activity" asleep than awake!

I don't know if this might help, my spiritual guide Tsem Rinpoche taught me a very powerful mantra to assist with smoother sleep and to get the crazy dreams under control. It might help you too OM TAREY TUTTAREY TUREY MOK-SA-NA SOHA (there are also other recitations and incantations for protection and wellbeing here if you'd be interested: http://bit.ly/iok2LI

You can recite this as much as you can (usually a recommended 108 times, as per the Buddhist prayer beads), just before going to sleep.

I do this whenever I start getting very disturbed dreams again and it does help to bring a more peaceful, quiet sleep (much needed after many nights of being a satellite dish!)

that mantra you posted lhamo, is to the Buddhist goddess, Tara. That mantra, "Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha"(there are various ways of spelling mantras. This one is Tibetan form while Sanskrit form of this ends with "svaha" instead of "soha") is to the main form of Tara which is as Green Tara. That mantra is very powerful and helpful from what I've learned from Tsem Rinpoche as well.
Sitatapatra/Dukkar's mantra, "Om Ma Ma Hung Ni Soha"(this is Tibetan form) also helps with dreams as it prevents black magic. Lord Dorje Shugden's mantra, "Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha" and Trakze form mantra "Om Benza Wiki Bitana Rakya Rakya Hung" are helpful in protection against evil, so they would be useful to use during before sleeping. Hope this helps.
