Recording Your Dreams - Part Two

Learning to Remember Your Dreams

Before you go to sleep, spend a few minutes preparing yourself. Try to relax and let go of the day's issues. However, if there is one particular issue troubling you, an issue you would like help to understand, or to clarify, you can use your dreams to shed new light on the subject.

Take the time just before you go to sleep to ask your inner being to present the issue to you in a new way. You are the director of your dream scenarios and you can use them, consciously, to explore possible solutions to your issues with greater awareness.

More importantly, you must give yourself permission to remember your dream experiences, to play with and joyously explore the possibilities that are shown to you in your dreams. It may take time for you to convince your day-to-day consciousness to relax its control over your day to day reality. To allow some of your inner messages to filter through into your conscious memory.

If you are having trouble remembering your dreams, say the following affirmation, out loud, before going to sleep:

Remembering your dreams is a process of training yourself, and giving yourself permission to use the material which is presented to you. But it is not enough just to remember the dream, or to write it down. To get the most from your experiences, you need to demonstrate your willingness to use, and act on the information you become aware of. This will give your dreams great power and your new behaviour will have an enormous impact on your day-to-day life.
