As I mentioned here earlier this week, I’m dearly missing my dream life, and hoping to recharge it, start remembering again. I’m keeping a pen & little book by the bed, and every morning this week I’ve managed to catch snippets when waking. It’s still rather like drunkenly going after tiny butterflies at this point, but I have the feeling that if I stick with it, things will progress again. Hopefully I can get back to writing out epic dreams and return to lucidity.
I’m experimenting with some of the suggestions in the book, such as rewinding the day in your mind, going over everything backwards from present to waking, which helps to filter out static from the day so you’re less inclined to dream about washing dishes (I’ve found a fun way to do this is when Isak is settling down for the night, I talk with him about everything we did during the day).
It’s surprising how vividly I can recall the dreams I’ve written about, even if they were 20 years ago. Equally surprising is how easy it is to lose the ones I’ve just had if I don’t make the effort. So I’m making the effort.
