But when I am tired and it is time to sleep, I start to remember past dreams. They all start to come flooding back into my memory. Just the main parts or summary of them; I never wrote them down in detail. (I only started a dream journal in September.) BUT I'll remember one dream and it will stimulate the memory of another dream and so on. Like they are all connected in the same part of my memory banks so to speak, and when I am close to sleep, they are unleashed.
It's like I have been living a double life and I have a memory of reality and a memory of dreams and they are both equal and different. But I start to recall many dreams before sleep and I wonder if others experience the same?
But the only hypnagogic imagery (or however it is spelled) that I experienced was in between lucid dreams, when I am almost awake, but not quite. I would love to be able to have a true Wake Induced Lucid Dream, but I am not there yet. I always fall asleep! SO I suck at Hypnagogic state too! (HOWEVER IT IS SPELLED!)

That's the key word: 'flooding'. They come back in a torrent don't they?
Remembering one dream stimulates the memory of another and another and so on like a domino effect.
At least that is my case and I presume it is the same for most of us.
Apparently dream recall is the first step to lucid dreaming, but I have been doing that for my whole life!
I don't think I am alone. For me... dreams are like a second life...... I remember them the way I do with real life.........
