How Many Dreams Can You Remember

I can remember about two or three of my dreams at night. Sometimes I felt like I didn't have one but some say that we just can't remember it. We are dreaming as long as we are fallen asleep. They say that people over the age of 10 dream for about 4-6 times after REM or rapid eye movement. Others have recorded their dreams and I have one weird dream that I wrote in my notebook. Can you completely remember your dreams? How many dreams can you remember?

Question would be like this: How many of you could achieve your dream or how many of you are going to achieve your dream... What is the fun of remembering the dream?? Remember the dream and write it dwn on a paper and try to achieve that dream...

Buddy, I'm talking about a dream, the one that you are experiencing when you are already unconscious. Of course we are aware of our dreams or let's say aspirations or goals in life. Anyhow your right, our dreams should not only remain as a dream forever, we should make it a reality.

I don't remember my dreams. Sometimes I just can remember parts of a dream, but I never remembered a full dream. I know some people that remember a lot of their dreams, but it is too strange to me. I know that the dream is the way that our brain uses to help us to remember what we learn on that day. Our brain do some connections with our old memories to keep what we learn. That is why is so important to have a good night when you are a student. But it doesn't mean that your dream have something similar with the reality that you have on that day. Happy mylotting.

It depends on the nights I have if I can remember my dreams. It also depends on the situation I am in, there are periods I write down every dream when finished (it's easy to train yourself to wake up after a dream, write it down and continue sleeping). Some dreams I will invest/translate and have a message, others are more like warnings I remember them. There are also dream who stay with me during the day, as soon I go back to bed I continue dreaming them.

Well, the dream universe is the strangest I know ! Sometimes, I remember dreams I made years ago ! Even if I thought I didn't dream last night, few days later I'll remember the dream I made the night I thought I didn't dream. o.0 So I can't really say how many dream I remember ... I forget and the I remember them. lol

I often remember my dreams upon waking and in between waking if and only if nobody's been trying to wake me up. I find it easy to remember most of the details in my dream if i've been allowed to sleep undisturbed. I keep a journal too, and recently i've learned that there are days when you can remember your dreams vividly and a certain day could have a certain theme. Since you keep a journal, i advice you to look at the dates and try to find the common theme (i.e. Tuesday dreams are more surreal and has a magic like theme) -- you'll actually be surprised as to what you'll discover! :) Also i learned that you can "program" yourself to dream what you want to before going to bed especially if you're already categorize your dreams according to the days ;) Hope this helps! :)

I can remember really vivid and realistic dreams, but most of the time after I wake up, I forget 50-90% of it. I keep a dream blog so that I don't forget some of the dreams that really had an impact on me. I hope that helped. :D

It's hard to remember what you have dreamed. Sometimes you'll have bits and pieces but it's best you dream, wake up and write it down so that way you can read over what you dreamed

If it's a dream that disturbs me, then I try to remember the details of my dream. Most of the time, I just don't mind any of my dreams. There was a time that I rarely dreamed when I slept. This was when I was so tired from work that I would go into dreamless sleep. I also don't write down my dreams even those that are disturbing. I'd rather like to forget these than go back to it from time to time.

I can also remember three or two dreams when ever I have them, though sometimes it seems like I don't get one at all (or maybe I just don't remember it). There are also times when I know that I have a dream but I can only remember small parts of it and not the whole story. They also say that dreams has its own meaning or something and that it's important to have a dream journal because it might help you in the future in interpreting your dreams (if ever you want to xD).

I can remember my dreams usually. They are usually related to what happened or is happening during my daily life. However, they usually does not make any sense or is not logical and I think I figure this out either during the dream or after I have waken up.

every time i had a dream i can remember it the whole day long but as the day ends it also fades. i am not fond of tellnig others my dream so i almost forget every dreams i had. but there are dreams that almost the same with other. the only difference is the character and the place, but what happened was just the same. these are the type of dreams i cannot forget. :)

For some reason i can only remember bad dreams. Like everything in life unfortunatly there is more bad than good therefore the good ones get forgotten. Maybe the reason why they are remembered more is that they really shake you from the inside like losing a loved one or a being caught in a natural disaster. You see when your asleep your not in control of yourself, as humans we tend not to like that. Have you had a dream recently?

I enjoy and afraid when I'm dreaming, because sometimes I know that its not true and cannot be, maybe my mind is aware that I'm dreaming about this matter but sometimes I enjoy it.. because you know that you are craving for it... hahaha.. well its depend what are this things in your mind, I do remember my dream and thinking the meaning or message of my dream. I don't know I want to know the meaning if this is a premonition or what? that why I can't forget it and just wonder if its happening or not
