4. Always try to come up with your own dream symbol associations, but if you feel really stuck, consult our dreams dictionary for guidance. It's also a great idea to get involved in our discussion board to get input from others with an interest in dream interpretation.
5. Be patient with yourself. Once you're on a roll, you'll find that you remember your dreams more and more and you'll fill up your journal faster than you expect.
6. Every now and then, review your journal to see what themes have been unfolding. You will soon notice how your external environment impacts your dreams, and you will learn a lot about yourself.
Dream journals are a wonderful way to keep a record of your dreams. Not only are they useful for recording the events of dreams, but also for processing the emotions generated by your dreams - particularly those that linger when you wake up.
If you regularly record your dreams and consider their meanings, and if you constantly update your journal with your own dream symbols, you will become well versed in your own unique language of symbols and meanings. You will be surprised how much this well help you to take a fresh approach to your everyday life.
Read, reflect and be inspired. If you find something of value on our Keeping a Dream Journal page, enjoy its gifts and please pass it on to your friends.
