How To Make Sure You Dream More Vividly
When some people dream, they can describe it in great deal. Their dreams are like full color movies complete with adventure, plot, narrative, and characters and a story that never seems to stop unfolding. Other people dream in black and white in a disjointed manner. Some people don’t remember ever having dreams at all.
Dreams are a rich source of inspiration and creativity for most people and being able to remember our dreams can help us work out emotions and thought processes that we have not been able to face in our day to day lives. Dreams can also help us organize our daily thoughts and give us the energy and motivation to accomplish what we need to in real life.
Dreams can also operate as a mode of self-expression. In our dream world, we can safely express emotions, even if it is just through symbolism. We come out of denial and face our true fears and feelings.
Remembering our dreams is also very entertaining. Dream experts say that the best way to remember your dreams is to tell yourself that you are going to remember before you got to bed at night. This is a way of programming your mind “not to forget.”
Yet another way to assist your memory is to keep a Dream Journal. This is a journal in which you write down what it is you would like to dream about that night. In the morning, as soon as you wake up and before you do anything, you write down the details of dream. The truth of it all is that most of us do remember our dreams as soon as we come back into consciousness, but that we also forget them very quickly. We do not tend to remember them unless they were somehow very traumatic or very beautiful or emotional in some way. We also tend to remember nightmares more than we remember any sweet dreams we have had. Erotic dreams are also more memorable to most just simply because they sometimes arouse us and wake us up before we have time to forget them.
There are other nutritional ways to make yourself dream more vividly. Research has shown that feeding people doses of B6 before they go to bed can cause them to dream more luridly. In fact, the exact amount of Vitamin B6 to take to cause vivid dreaming is 250 grams. Vitamin B6 is a vitamin that supports brain or neural function. In foods, you find it in bananas, fish, oranges, beans, liver, nuts, chicken, carrots, and spinach.
Other foods that might have the effect of causing you to dream in more detail are oysters, pizza, alcohol, and tobacco. Codiene, found in cough syrups and pain relievers, can also induce vivid experiences. Taking supplement such as the amino acid Tryptophan, Melatonin, Selenium, Calcium, Magnesium. Folic acid, Acetylcholine, DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol), Vitamin C, and Phenylalanine can also help you dream longer and in more detail.
