If you can dream it, you can receive it!

A Dream Journal is great for writing down all your thoughts and ideally as a diary for your dreams. You can write down and record all the dreams you have. It's best to write a dream right after you wake up, when the dream is still fresh. This helps you analyze the meaning of your dreams while improving your dreams. This is important if you want to learn how to lucid dream.

There are no rules on how to keep your dream diary. You can write and explain the most important aspects of your dreams, or write the entire dream story.

Benefits of writing out your dreams:

By keeping a dream diary your dreams will start getting more vivid. They will look more ”alive,” with more colors and more details. Journaling will also help you develop to identify your ”dream symbols.” This is crucial for lucid dreaming, as you can recognize that you are in a dream precisely with the help of your dream symbols/signs. Lastly, it can increase your awareness. Keeping a dream journal forces you into a daily habit of thoughtful observation, making you more aware of your surroundings as well as your deeper-self.

Writing down your dreams for a few weeks each morning can make a big difference in your ability to remember your dreams.

Dream Journal Guide:

Let Your Dreams Be Your Wings

Step 1: Your dream notebook must be dedicated solely to recording your dreams. Use it only to write relatable material.

Step 2: Make a note of the date of your dream and write it down as soon as you wake up. With a pen, keep your dream journal next to your bed.

Step 3: Use the present tense when writing. It's easier to write in the present tense when you first wake up. Describe your dream as though it were happening right now to assist you remember more details. It's simple: put your thoughts "back in the dream" and you'll be able to recall a more vivid memory.

Step 4: Make a list of dream themes. Consider the dream's setting, characters, sensations, sounds, objects, and emotions. Highlight significant topics that can aid in dream interpretation.

Step 5 - Spelling, punctuation, and grammar aren't important. You're alright as long as you can read it again later and it still makes sense.

Step 6: Make a sketch of any vivid pictures from your dream. The purpose of a sketch is to assist you in visualizing your dream later on.

Step 7 - Once you've completed, make a list of any big life concerns that are now affecting you. For example, you could be dealing with a broken heart. You'll be able to link your unconscious dream symbols to real-life situations over time.

Happy Journaling!
