Do you keep a dream diary?
I have begun to keep a dream diary at my bed side. My goal in the future is to understand my subconscious better and become a lucid dreamer. Has a dream diary worked for you?
ya i do have dream diary..i note what ever i remember..i have been keeping it since 3 months now..
I do, and it certainly helps me have lucid dreams. Another trick is to condition yourself into questioning whether you're awake or not throughout the day. If you get into a habit of seriously asking yourself whether you're awake or asleep, you'll eventually manage to ask yourself that question while you're dreaming.
It worked for me, anyway.
I think dream diaries can be incredibly helpful. Not only are we able to record what we may forget, but it can be more than that. We can look back and see if there are patterns, or similarities in our dreams. That helps us to draw conclusions that specific dreams may have significance. I'm so happy I keep a dream diary, it's awesome!
kelley - that is amazing. that is something new i haven't read yet. i will have to start trying that...
maryrenee - i'm sure there are some patterns that start to develop... I can see some in mine. Although I think you have to record your dreams on a daily basis for quite sometime until you can really analyze the patterns and draw any conclusions about their meaning...
dream diaries are awesome!!...u dream something and try hard to put it on paper..this makes u realise how realistic the life is and u know urself better.it makes u to take right steps in your life.it tells u to go that way and not that way.it becomes your life guide.when u get bored,you open the lovely diary and recollect your dreams thats a awesome feeling..isnt it?
Nope, but I should, my dreams have been freaking crazy lately...

I've lost count of the dream diaries I had kept. I have always been so fascinated by my dreams I started to keep a diary and record my dreams whenever I could.
At the beginning they felt very random and senseless, with mysteries too deep for my conscious mind to penetrate. But gradually, they started to make sense. The random dense jungle started to part their branches and show the clear path underneath. Gradually, I was able to discern different types of dreams and decipher symbols and meanings that's exclusively my own.
Nowadays, my dreams often give me very clear and unambiguous guidance. Often I might not quite understand the dream language upon waking, yet as soon as I put pen to paper, it becomes crystal clear with meaning.
Good luck with your dream diary. It's a very worthwhile endeavor!
yes actually iv had several. My dreams are wierd and demented at the best of times but i find compfort in writting them down and studdying them to make sense of it all. im glad im not the only one out there who does it.
Absolutely jdavis! I have been keeping them for around 15 years and have several 'Pilot' pens that light up so I don't wake hubby up. Often when I wake up, even after all these years of journalling, I think that what I dreamt couldn't possibly mean anything, but I still write it down and more often than not it does apply to my 'waking' life!
I find it great to go back through and see how I have grown in understanding what my dreams are actually saying, and even more interesting when they come to pass as many I have are prophetic.
I even used to type up all my dreams from the diaries and catalogue them, but as I am a prolific dreamer I mainly just type up the ones that I feel are important as there are way too many diaries to wade through now!
I have found that as I have grown and matured emotionally and spiritually lucid dreaming has become easier and I can deal to any unwanted intrusions in my dreams (usually )
There are definitely patterns, but then a symbol will be turned on it's head when taken in context with the whole dream and mean something entirely different.
Ha ha long winded way of saying it, but dreams are my passion. Well worth keeping a diary as there is much treasure to be discovered in dreams for you and others!

If yes, how can I?I have lots of lucid dreams, how can I switch it to astral projection?I mean I've heard that in a lucid dream, we can take control and if we want we can take it to the other step.i.e.astral travel.How can I change it to astral projection when I'm lucid dreaming?

I constantly have dreams that I'm flying, and I can control where I go. What does it mean?
