How to catch your dreams

If you want to harness the messages the universe and your subconscious mind are sending you, there are several steps you can take to catch your dreams more easily.

For many of us, remembering the details of our dreams is quite hard, if not impossible.

The alarm goes off, we jump out of bed and into the shower, throw down a coffee and begin our day. If we’re lucky, we may remember a small detail or two of the previous night’s dream, or bits and pieces may come back to us later in the day. This is because 80 per cent of your dreams are lost if you are woken quickly or suddenly. The minute your mind is jolted out of sleep, most the the details of your dreams disappear.

Waking naturally and slowly, however is an impossible thought to most of us. The idea that we would leave it to our own internal alarm clocks to wake for the day is quite foreign – and even scary for some.

However if you really tap into the power of dreams, start with the last thought of the night before you fall asleep. Say to yourself, “I will remember my dream in the morning” and visualise yourself waking up five minutes before your alarm.

Visualisation and affirmations are very important. Picture yourself waking refreshed and rested with a clear memory of the images you received overnight.

When you do wake in the morning, try not to over-think the dream. Putting too much pressure on yourself and frantically trying to ‘reach back in your mind’ for all the details will only make the dream disappear even quicker.

Conscious thought will blast the dream away. it moves your thoughts into the conscious mind, but you need to return to the subconscious mind to remember the dream.

Try to lie in bed and let your mind wander back into the dream. Have a notebook next to you and record everything you remember to analyse later.

While there are also dream-catching cards and other items you can buy to help ‘catch’ your dreams, the bet way to remember dreams is to learn more and develop an interest in them.
