I define a "lucid dream" as you having a basic level of awareness that you're dreaming.
There might not be any awareness of who you really are (ie: you don't know you're a physical person lying in a bed sleeping somewhere)... to attain that awareness, I call an astral projection. Having an "astral awareness".

It doesn't matter what kind of awareness you have, you can still experience something then forget it a second later. That's just how our memory works. For example, sometime I can totally forget what I had to eat for breakfast... you'd think this would be a no-brainer, as I'm very aware what I'm eating while I'm eating it, but for some reason it's something I do often, so I don't put much thought into it.

If you're wanting to remember *ANY* kind of experiences, upon waking immediately take 5 minutes to remember as much detail as you can of what you were just experiencing. Put thought into it! :)

Yes of course we can forget our lucid dream. I once have a lucid dream, when i woke up, i was telling to myself what i have dream tonight, i couldnt remember anything. I went to the bathroom and a flash came, i realise that i have make a lucid dream, but it was not very clear. So this day i have just wrote some words. :cry:

Most of my lucid dreams are remembered the same way as I remember doing something when awake. So naturally the memory gets buried over time when new memories are formed just like any waking one.

However, there have been a few times when I would write in my dream journal, trying to remember my dreams and disappointed that I wasn't lucid, when all of a sudden I do remember that I was lucid last night. It was a lucid dream that happened in the middle of all the other non-lucid ones and since I didn't wake up right afterward, the memory gets muddled with all the others.

So yea, I have had some lucid dreams that I can barely remember. It's frustrating, and all I remember was having so much fun at the time, but can't remember exactly what I did.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.

That is what happened to me. I would have never remembered it at all if I hadn't been in the habit of dream journaling. I would have totally forgot about it and never known. There is no reason why this can't happen to others who don't remember their dreams and they will never know they were actually lucid once.

Esp if its a very brief period of lucidity like many newbies to this get. I think the briefer the period of lucidity (some beginners may only have seconds of lucidity before going non lucid again).. the more probable it may be for it to be forgotten about.

I guess that is quite comparable to real life as far as time goes.. say a person wakes up for a few seconds in middle of the night to roll over in bed, its less likely to be remembered then if one got up during the middle of the night and spent 15mins eatting a bowl of cereal.
