Want to know how to make your dreams work for you?
A journal is a must for writing down all your dreams. After a week or 2 you will begin to notice patterns. Your sub-conscious has been giving you messages for years. Keeping a dream journal will begin to help you understand the messages.
- Before you go to bed, intend to dream.
- Intend to remember your dreams.
- Keep a (working) pen and notebook or journal next to your bed
- When you wake from a dream, write down everything you can remember even if it’s the middle of the night.
- Before you fall asleep, ask yourself questions you want an answer to. Keep it simple and only ask 1 or 2 questions per night. Expect answers when you wake up. The answers will be in the dreams so write all you can remember down.
- Practice! The more writing you do the more help you will get. You need to exercise that dream muscle.
- Clear your mind and relax before bed. Meditate, deep breath, have a warm bath or write all your concerns down in a journal, that way you go to sleep with a clear mind.
- Understand we all get dream “dry spells.” Don’t get worried or anxious if you don’t remember your dreams but you should write in your journal or notebook anyway. Put a date and record that you didn’t remember any dreams.
- Notice patterns. After you have several dreams written down, look and see if there are any patterns to your dreams.
- You are everything and everyone in your dream! Your dreams are all about you. When trying to figure out what message a dream has for you, try to understand what the images mean for you.
- Illustrate or make art from your dreams. You could doodle, paint cut and paste, scribble a color or make a collage, there is something magic that happens when you take a dream and create art from it. Follow your intuition but you don’t need to make art from every dream just do 1 or 2 a week if you can.
