Do you remember dreams actively, occasionally, or not at all?Do you ever write them down and reflect on them later?

I remember some of them but not all of them . I used to have bad dreams when I was younger and my mom would always wake me up , I never could tell her what was scaring me so bad as I could never remember , but one I do remember and don't know why it scared me so bad but it still gives me the chills when I think about it where a woman all dressed in white was walking down a long corridor she turned and looked at me just as my mother woke me up . My mohter was dressed in a yellow nightgown and I started screaming and trying to hit her away from me , it took me a few minutes to realize it was my mother , but I was never able to tell her why the dream scared me so much as I am still not sure what was so scary but even talking about it gives me the chills even today .

That's a very interesting dream sequence from your childhood. Wow, for it to seem so real. I think they do feel more real when we're young.

I did because they were scary. I wrote them down and tried to find out what they meant by reading online articles. I haven't found the answer yet maybe I should ask a real expert.

I interpret dreams for people from time to time. I think the thing you need to remember is symbols in dreams aren't always universal. It could be something completely personal. I would take a look at what's going on in your life, what you're feeling, things that might be causing you anxiety and stress and see if you can pull anything together from that.

not at all, but i'm very tired so that can be a reason

they say sometimes if you give yourself an extra five minutes in bed to wake up and reflect on your sleep, you may have an easier time remembering your dreams, but you're right. If you're overtired and not getting enough sleep, I can see how it would be difficult to remember your dreams. Are you even sleeping long enough to make your dream cycle?

I only remember my dreams sometimes, usually I have to wake up in the middle of one to remember it. I've never written them down, but if it is really interesting, I will stay awake for a few minutes thinking over the dream to cement it in my "waking" mind so that I can tell someone about it later (sometimes this works, sometimes not). Usually I will remember a segment of my dream very vividly, and then it will get vague and fuzzy because my dreams don't really follow much of a logical sequence. which makes it hard to remeber later.

I dream all the time I will only write down and reflect and anaylse the dreams that have a lasting impression in my mind and bugg me for that day. I find there is always a hidden message. Allot of my dreams are just a wind down of my thoughts and the days events.
