Why some people remember their dreams

Why do some people remember their dreams and why others don't remember them?
Why would the same person remember his dream one day and never manage to recall it in a different day?

Just like body language dream interpretation is one of the most misunderstood topics as a result of the inferior and incorrect information written about them everywhere over the web.

In order to understand the meaning of dreams perfectly and in order to know why some people remember their dreams you need to filter out the misconceptions and the incorrect information you came across about dreams.

The reason some people remember their dreams while others dont

One of the dream interpretation theories that makes a lot of sense says that the main function of dreams is to stir up your emotions and to remind you of the important problems you need to solve.

If for example you had a major problem in your life that you weren't giving much attention to then your subconscious mind will send you a dream about it, in an encoded way of course, in order to motivate you to take an action.

Alfred Adler the father of individual psychology believed that People remember their dreams when the issue is too important to be ignored by their subconscious minds while they forget their dreams when the issues are trivial. (see also The connection between the subconscious mind and dreams)

I strongly agree with that interpretation. Some people mistakenly believe that they can ignore their life problems and escape unnoticed but thanks to the subconscious mind any suppressed emotions will leak through different ways and one of these ways is dreams.

If you don't remember your dreams then this might mean that the communication between your conscious and subconscious mind is going well while you are awake.

Other reasons some people don't remember their dreams

In addition to the previous reasons some people never manage to remember their dreams because they don't do the following practices:

  • Writing and remembering your dreams: Keeping a pencil and a paper beside your bed will help you record your dreams quickly as soon as you wake up or if you woke up in the middle of the night.
  • Recalling your dreams as soon as you wake up: If you didn't try to remember your dreams as soon as you wake up then you might not be able to recall them later on

Dreams are an important communication method between your conscious and your subconscious mind. The ability to remember your dreams is a skill that you must train yourself on in order to improve your life and to understand your mind in a better way.
