Remembering your dreams will require some effort on your part. But what your dreams can offer and tell you about yourself will be well worth it. Here are some tips in helping your dream recall: 1. Before going to bed, keep a clear mind. Tell yourself that "I will remember my dream when I wake up". This is actually a proven and effective way to help dream recall. Having too many thoughts on your mind can distract you from remembering your dream in the morning. 2. Have a regular bedtime and wake up time. Make this your routine. Going to bed and waking up at a regular time every day aids in dream recollection. 3. Avoid alcohol consumption and taking medication before going to bed. These things may hinder you from remembering your dream. Eating fatty foods too close to bedtime can also divert bodily resources away from the brain and hinder dream recollection. 4. Keep a pencil/notebook or tape recorder next to your bed so that it will be within reach as soon as you wake up. You want to make recording your dreams as easy a task as possible. Having a small lamp by your bedside is also a good idea should you wake up in the middle of the night and want to record your dream immediately. 5. Do not get out of bed immediately. Upon waking from a dream, lay still in your bed, keeping your eyes closed and moving as little as possible. Wake up slowly and stay relax. Hold on to the feelings you have and let your mind wander to the images of what you have just dreamt. Were you frustrated, terrified, or happy? 6. Write down as many details in your dream as you can, no matter how minute or seemingly unimportant it may be. Do not judge the content or worry if it makes sense. The idea is to get it down on paper so you can evaluate it later. Make it a habit that this is the first thing you do. Talking about your dreams to friends or participating in forums and chats also help you remember. 7. Sometimes it may help to draw pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes. Even if you are not an artist a simple drawing can help to jolt details of your dream.

Dreams are a way of processing what goes into our lives. They're also a way for our Creator to communicate with us when our minds are quiet. Not all dreams will necessarily have a meaning. We should make sure we are giving our minds good material to process. Bad stuff going in will result in bad stuff coming out. Dreams are not fortune telling devices that will, "come true" -- or not. God speaks to us primarily through His Word. But if we don't ever read it, we're missing out on a great opportunity for blessing. The Bible has MUCH to say about dreams and visions. Dream interpretation should have its foundation in Scripture rather than on pagan dream interpretation websites. Get in the Word. Eat it up. Ecc 5:7 -- For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God. Prov 16:2 -- All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. 3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

A true Gospel would be one written by someone who knew Jesus and was divinely inspired, such as Thomas, Judas, Mary Magdalene, Philip, James etc. A false gospel would be one written by someone who didn't know Jesus, it is said that half the gospels in the Bible were written by people who didn't know Jesus. Whether or not they were divinely inspired, the presence of Jesus would be the most accurate inspiration for a Christian gospel. The gnostic gospels may not all have been written in their present form by those whose names they bear, but the original form of those gospels would have been from disciple named. They seem to understand the true teachings of Jesus better than most of the ones that were included. When the council of Nicea decided which gospels to put in the Bible they were politically motivated to include those which conformed to their own teachings. God never stopped speaking but many forgot how to listen.

Anngela Originally Answered: The Epic of Gilgamesh dreams compared to Genesis dreams. HELP?
There are four sets of dreams in Gilgamesh. In the first instance, GIlgamesh dreams about the coming of Enkidu (the end of tablet one). The second example is a set of ritually induced dreams by Gilgamesh on his way to the cedar forest (tablet 4). Enkidu unconvincingly interprets all of these terrifying dreams as good omens. Next, Enkidu in a dream hears his own death sentence pronounced in the divine council and has a frightening vision of the netherworld (tablet 7). Finally, Gilgamesh has a dream in a mountain pass when he hears lions close by during his final quest (tablet 9). Because of a fragmentary text we are not certain of the content, but the end result is that he prayed to the moon god Sin for help and then arose to slay the lions. In Genesis, Abraham has a vision at the start of chapter 15 about having an heir, but we are not told specifically that it came in the form of a dream. At the end of the chapter he does experience a dream about his descendents captivity in Egypt for 400 years. This dream seems to be ritually induced by the sacrifice that precedes it. Next, God appears to Abimalech king of Gerar in a dream to warn him not to sleep with Abraham's wife Sarah (Genesis 20). In Genesis 28, Jacob has a dream at Bethel of a ladder reaching to heaven and is promised land and many descendents. In Genesis 31 Jacob recounts a dream to his wives about being told to leave Laban's employ and return to his native land. In the same chapter Laban has a dream that he is not to harm Jacob who has tried to leave in secret. Then in Genesis 37, Joseph has two dreams about being served by his older brothers. In Genesis 40, Joseph interprets the dreams of his fellow prisoners that foretell their elevation and execution respectively. In chapter 41, Pharoah has two dreams that Joseph interprets as foretelling seven years of plentiful harvests followed by seven years of famine. Then in chapter 46, Jacob has a night "vision" reassuring him that it is safe to journey to Egypt to be reunited with Joseph. I must admit that there seem to be few parallels between the dream accounts in the two documents. The patriarchal narratives of Genesis seem to be orientated around the promise of a future homeland and many descendents - a strong theme in this part of Genesis. In some cases it is about protecting the patriarchs so that the promised line will not come to an end - this is the case with the warnings to Abimalek and Laban. The dreams and dream interpretation of Joseph take us more into the realm of the oriental court tale and the traditional pattern of the fall and restoration of a courtier. The presence of an interpreter here has a parallel in Giglamesh, although Enkidu's invariably optimistic interpretations of the king's ominous dreams have a ring of mockery and caricature about them. Perhaps the author is poking fun at official dream interpreters who inevitably provide pleasing interpretations to their monarch. One notable point in Genesis when compared to the ancient near eastern background is that it is usually kings who are the recipients of important dreams in other literature, whereas in Genesis the main recipients are the patriarchs Abraham, Jacob and Joseph. Another point is that two of the dreams accounts in Gilgamesh are quite terrifying and seem to fortel disaster - apart from the dream about the baker, this contrasts with the positive tone of most of the Genesis dream sequences. The Joseph stories are definitely closer to Gilgamesh than the other patriarchal stories in two respects: the dreams come in groups and they employ striking imagery. Of the four dream sequences in Gilgamesh, three include more than one dream - the sequence is 2, 7, 2, 1. In the Joseph stories we have three groups of two dreams. Then, while the patriarchal stories tend to describe dreams in which God speaks to the patriarchs, the dreams of the Joseph stories include images that require interpretation. This is very similar to the dreams of Gilgamesh about the coming of Enkidu and their future battle with Humbaba. Although Enkidu's dreams are self explanatory, they still provide dramatic images of the heavenly court and the terrors of the underworld. 'Hope this is helpful.
