5 Steps to Improve the Memories of Your Dreams

Here is the 5 step method to improve the memories of your dreams

1. Don’t use an alarm clock that has an aggressive ring

If this is necessary for your alarm clock, use it second. Place the alarm on the first dial, softer for your alarm clock, 15 minutes before the “aggressive”. A sudden awakening surely ensures you forget your dreams.

2. Keep your eyes closed and let yourself be overwhelmed by the images and impressions of your night

Write them down or record them without judgment. You will later transcribe your dreams into your journal and decode it. For now, like a fisherman, the important thing is to go up the fish (dreams).

3. Pass back into your mind the people you know

Maybe some of them will reappear and they will have been present during your dreams, which is very likely. Science tells us that we only dream of faces known or encountered in the course of our lives … It is therefore very likely that you have dreamed of a face that is close to you! Check out!

4. Keep your eyes closed and take the different positions you take when you sleep

The fact of resuming physically these different positions gives the possibility to make reappear dream memories …

5. Moisturize yourself!

Before going to bed, place a glass of water next to your bed and drink a sip, telling yourself that you will remember your dreams when you wake up. The first action to do in the morning, keeping your eyes closed, if possible, is to take a sip and let the dreams come to the surface of your consciousness.
I like to sleep personally, with a headband to cut off the morning light and allow me to be still in the privacy of my dreams. This act gives me the chance to internalize myself and not get out too quickly of this state. I feel that the headband is part of my “dream uniform”, now you find yours and adopt the appropriate rituals, like those I have presented here, to remember easily your journeys in the dream dimension !

[Zoom] on the novel

Zoom on the novel

Even the most reluctant to read one day had a novel in his hands. Whether it is because of a reading imposed by the school or any other occasion. Indeed, the novel is the most widely read genre in France. But, what exactly is a novel?

It is a literary genre, characterized by a fictional narrative, and which has multiple subgenres (fantasy, detective, science fiction …).

Origins of the novel

The term “novel” (Latin vulgar) means a Romanic translation of a text written in Latin. French literature born of the Strasbourg Oath, first text written in “novel”. This pact (of legal value) between the grandsons of Charlemagne was written in 842. Before that date, all the texts were written in Latin.

In the Middle Ages, in the twelfth century, the novel was written in verse. He thus evokes, through stories fabulous and close to the epic, the questions that concern most people at the time. In the 13th century, the worms became proses in the adventures of Lancelot du Lac. From this point on, the novel genre really develops.

The novel knows its hours of glory since the nineteenth century, whether historical, adventure, science fiction …

“Reading a novel throws light on life.” (Louis Aragon)
