Keeping A Dream Journal

Dreams are really cool. They are like little movies that only you can see. I don't know about you, but I find I enjoy them better when I can remember them.

About a month ago, I started keeping a dream journal. Basically, a dream journal where I record all my dreams. They say that dreams are a sign of your body getting enough sleep because you have dreams when you're body has enough time to get rid of all the unnecessary thoughts during the day.

A cool way to experience dreaming is this thing called Lucid Dreaming.

Lucid Dream (noun)
a dream state in which one is conscious enough to recognize that one is in the dream state and which stays in one's memory - Google

I think it is really cool to be mentally aware of your dreams because you remember them better and you can manipulate your dreams yourself.

Not only are dreams a sign of good sleeping habits, they help the creative mind. Many film writers and novelists say that the ideas for numerous scenes they create are derived from their dreams.

One of the women I listen to is  Jody Whiteley from YouTube. I like her videos the best. I put it on at night or when I'm taking a nap and fall asleep. If you're going to try it, make sure you have an alarm ready to wake you up so you don't oversleep. As soon as I wake up, I go over to my desk and write out my dream in my journal. I can honestly say that I remember every dream I have had since I started this process. It's actually really interesting.

Keeping a dream journal gives you a few minutes a day to simply write all that your mind releases. Time to reflect on your subconscious mind. Our dreams are where our thoughts go when our mind wants to release them but psychologists say that they could hold deeper meanings. Keep track of your dreams, themes, and subjects you see in your dreams. You'll find you learn a lot more about yourself by what your subconscious mind chooses to focus on.

Hope you all decide to give it a try!
