Beyond Your Wildest Dream Series # 11: Train Your Brain?

Beyond Your Wildest Dream Series # 11: Train Your Brain? April 25, 2016


You have sent me many dream questions and I’ve been waiting for a rainy day to answer them. Well, it’s raining. So, I’ve shut off my cell phone and hung the Do Not Disturb sign on my door that I “borrowed” from a hotel room. In order to answer them all, I’ve created a dream series because I believe by reading the answers to the dreams of others we enrich our waking-life. Each section in the series will focus on answering your dream questions.

Today, your wildest dream questions are my main priority.

Your Question: When I wake up it feels like my dream just disappears. And, it seems like the harder I try the less I can remember. Sometimes I even know when I am dreaming that my dream is the same dream before that I forgot. Yet, when I wake up it is gone, again. Very frustrating! Can we train our brain to remember our dreams?

I feel your frustration as I read your questions. The good news is Yes! we can train our brain to remember dreams, just as we can train it to wake us at a certain hour every morning, or remember where we left those car keys when we threw open the front door and ran into the house to answer the telephone. It has to do with mentally retracing your steps.

You can learn to retrace your steps through your Sacred Dream Doors to find the keys to your dream message, even your wildest ones.

Here is how to start training your brain for sleep memory.

Our brains are so amazing they never stop surprising us. And your brain is extremely active in a different way when you are asleep. Dreaming is a complete brain activity. Why is it important to train yourself to remember your dreams? Have you ever meditated or prayed for help with a life challenge?

Your prayers may be answered in your dreams. You don’t want to miss that guidance do you?

Dreams are Sacred Doorways to Celestial Information that can impact your waking life. Remembering that information imparted through dreams is the key.

Remembering your dreams is as easy as 1-2-3-4-5.

Your dreams are an incredible tool that can help you overcome or work through any illness or crisis with guided healing information. The trick is remembering them.

Here are some tips and information to help you remember your dreams and connect with Inner-guidance for a healthier and more fulfilled life.

George Noory of Coast to Coast AM Radio interviewed Kathleen (Kat) O’Keefe-Kanavos on prophetic dreams that diagnosed her breast cancer three times. The most important thing about the dreams was remembering them.

“Without dream memory there was no hope for life. Stage 4 breast cancer is considered a terminal stage. Yet, here I am writing this blog series, 12 years later. When the medical community missed my breast cancer all three times my dreams told me it was there and how to convince my doctors to test for it.”

During the show Kat Kanavos also discusses additional ways to remember your dreams. The actual link to the show is at the bottom of this information.

Here are five simple steps you can use tonight to help remember your dreams.

I.)Verbally voice your intention to remember your dream before you go to sleep.

II.) Keep a notebook beside your bed and when you awaken, write what you remember. Early-morning dreams are the easiest to remember. If you are having trouble remembering, lie down in bed in the same position you were in when you awoke, relax, and try to remember anything at all.

III.) Write down your feelings at the time you awoke if the dream still allusive -Happy, Sad, Frightened, Content or Anxious.

IV.) Write down any color that pops into your mind while trying to remember the dream.

V.) Give your dream a title, even if it’s The Dream Without a Name. If some part of the dream returns during the day, jot it down on a piece of paper and add it to your dream journal.

Writing in your dream journal will help increase dream recall. Many clients have told me that they began to recall more dream content than they really cared for and felt flooded with it. It is okay. Their Sacred Dream doors opened and all the information that was locked away flooded out at first, then it slowed down to a manageable flow.

Over time your dreams will become longer as you begin to interface with yourself, your Inner-guidance, and your Spirit-guides.



We all have Spirit-guides. We are their job and they take their job very seriously. Remembering your guides is reconnecting with your true essence.

Meeting guides in your dreams is a wonderful step to a healthier and more fulfilled life. And they can help you remember your dreams by reminding you of a night dream during a Daydream.

If you have not done so already, set your intention tonight to remember your dreams and meet your Spirit-guides. They are waiting for you. It could make a big difference in your life because you will never feel alone, again.

Help others by sharing your personal steps for remembering your dreams in the comments.

Do you find dreams easier to remember in the morning or right after you fell asleep? Note that in your journal.
