Tips for Recording your Dreams

1.Record the dream in your dream journal in as much detail as possible.

2.Write down briefly anything significant.

What aspect of this dream is most interesting? fascinating? scary?

In this dream, what are you doing?  
What feelings are associated with each action?      Be specific.
What actions are complete or incomplete?
What feelings are resolved or unresolved?

What are the major patterns in the dream? Note especially similarities, contrasts, repetitions, transformations, and hybrid images.

How are these patterns related to your waking life?

What are the major symbols in this dream?

Who are the major characters in this dream?

What would you most like to change in this dream?

What would you most like to avoid n this dream?
 
Where in this dream is information still missing?
Feelings still unresolved or unexpressed? Choices narrowly limited?

3. Give the dream a title.

4. Draw a sketch, cartoon or map of the central issue of the dream.

5. Write down any immediate, intuitive, from the gut, reactions you had to the dream when you woke up. For example, you feel that the dream is about your mother or that you should take a job you are considering.

6. Write down how you felt on waking and how you felt for the rest of the day.

7. Try to interpret the dream.

If you can't seem to remember your dreams, you could try any simple affrmations. Such as I DO remember my dreams, I AM going to remember my dreams etc.

Yes, like kiwi said.  I started with affirmations, saying aloud 3 times "I will remember my dreams".  Another helpful thing is to not fly out of bed when you wake up, lay there for a few minutes as see if you remember anything first, while your mind is still not fully awake.

A useful technique is to tell your self a couple times before you go asleep to wake up when you dream, so when you wake up you can write it down, and then go back to sleep. You'll be astonished of how much dreams you will write down in one night.
Also sometimes when i'm just doing daily stuff i remember a dream that i had, but that i forgot because of getting up to fast(as kalee stated).

Also thanks to kalee for the tips, yesterday i used them for writing out my dreams i had. :D

yeah, I never fly out of bed, lol.  This morning, I woke up during a dream, and just lay in bed, concious of my body, changing this dream.  I'm starting to remember my dreams alot more.  Last night, I dreamed that a teacher was giving out to me, and nearly broke my neck!!  Thanks for the tips, and I think that affirmations is one of the best ways to go.

Like Kalee said, when you wake up try not to move a muscle and focus on a dream you can remember.  After a while it will come back to you.

Anything else besides affirmations? They don't seem to work for me. And I have to fly out of bed, because I'm always late for school :o .
I would follow Kalees tips, but it feels as though I don't even dream anymore because I can't remember a damn thing about them. The space between the night and the morning doesn't exist to me, it's a complete blank. The only time I can remember dreams is when I get a deja-vu, because my deja-vus are almost always from my dreams.
I know I should get more sleep, but sometimes that just isn't an option.
Anyway, if you can think of anything for me, it would be greatly appreciated, although I can understand if you can't.
(This isn't directed at anyone in particular).

Watchtower:
Try setting your alarm or a second alarm an hour and a half or 2 hours or so before you actually have to get up.

I do this everymorning and I usually wake up in the middle of a dream, then you can either lay down a bit too try recalling your dream and writing it down.
Or just go to sleep again, in the second case I often continue the previous dream or dream something else.

And when I wake up at the time I actually have to get up I also usually wake up from a dream because of this.

Plus if you wake up and go back to sleep about an hour and a half before you have too, you`ll enjoy some really deep sleep. And that makes up a bit if you get little sleep. Well it does for me anyway ^_^, personally I just like waking up and being able to turn around and sleep for a bit more.

(note: I used to set my other alarm only an hour before the time I had to get up, but when I got up the second time it just wasn`t enough for me and I wake up not feeling so great)

Hope that helps ya any

I only remember the meaningful dreams. Like, scary dreams, or the dreams I have where something bad happens to me.  The other unmeaningful dreams, my mind just throws away and I froget them.

So, these tips would only help me if I were to have a meaningful dreams. :)

I think all dreams have some kind of meaning, just some are much more significant than others. I've never left a dream I could remember unanalysed at least a little bit, however some dreams I've had are so abstract they are almost impossible to analyse. Those are the dreams that get stuck in my head for the rest of the day  :P

I remember a dream from almost every night and I record the ones that seem important or are in great detail. I have be4en recording and interpreting them for several years. A couple times I have dreamt things and wrote them down that  have happened months later. When I dream about someone, I usually tell them about it so that if it happens they say, 'Hey didn't you tell me you dreamt of this?' I can control myself in my dreams, but only if no one is there, which is pretty pointless anyways. All I can do is play with the detail and run around checking out the landscapes and try to relate the landscape to one I know personally. It doesn't happen often, and usually I try to half wake myself up so I can control more of the dream but all I have is the dream's landscape going on forever and ever.

I was wondering what else I could do to be able to control my dreams more and how/if I can fine tune my dreams to be precog.

Any suggestions?

Pehaps you could try false awakening if you can control your dream, when you wake up in another dream you will have a new landscape.

Edit: Wow, Some of the old posts are kind of embarrassing. I think I'll just leave it to "I'm Always half awake."

I am unsure of wether this constitutes grave digging or not, but I may as well resurrect this thread with a personal trick that helps a lot.

When I dream, something I find particularly useful is to draw what I have seen. Quick doodles and notes beside them are enough to keep a memory alive and even allow it to be explored. However, if you deviate from what happened in the dream, that can mess up exploration a tad.   

Personally, I rarely get to note down my dreams. I'm always in such a rush in the mornings, and thus I forget them fairly quickly. Unfortunate, really.

It's fine, really. The thread's a sticky anyway.
