The Best Way To Remember Your Dreams
One of the best ways to remember your dreams, and learn how to have lucid dreams, is to keep a dream journal. A dream journal is nothing more that a personal collection of your dreams. Most successful lucid dreamers that I know would have never became lucid without their dream journal. Not only does writing your dreams down help you remember your dreams, but it also gives you an opportunity to go back and analyze your dreams for similarities.

As soon as you wake up from a dream, make it a point to write in your journal. If you wake up in the middle of the night, take about 5 minutes away from going back to sleep, and write down what you remember. The reason that this is so important is because most of the time, within 20 minutes or so, you will not remember most of your dream. If you were to try to wait until you woke up later, there is a very little chance that you will remember any of your dream.

The entries do not have to be long. They don't even have to make much sense. The goal is to get everything that you can remember down on the paper. By doing this, you can go back at a later time, read through it, and see if you remember any more.

It is also a good idea to come up with a title for each entry. Later on, when your journal begins to fill up, you may want to flip through your journal to look for a specific dream. If the dream is titled, it will be much easier to find the specific dream that you are looking for.

Since this journal is supposed to be something special, make it look special to you! If you buy a notebook, dress the notebook up! Put some of your favorite colors on it, or put a picture of something special to you on the cover. I would recommend putting a picture of a beautiful place on the cover. I put a picture of the Smokey Mountains on the cover of my journal, and it has helped me start my dreams flying through the mountains! Those dreams are completely amazing!

If you would rather keep your journal on your computer, I have listed a couple FREE pieces of software that you can use as a dream journal.

  • Liquid Dream

    This is my favorite piece of software for keeping a record of my dreams. This software will help you find common themes, recognize similar characters, and even notice objects that have appeared in multiple dreams! It is perfect for both keeping and analyzing dreams. Best of all, its free, with no limitations!

  • MB Free Dream Interpretation Software

    This is a lot like Liquid Dream, but not as good in my opinion. Give Liquid Dream a try, and if you don't like it, then try this software out. This journal will also help you analyze your dreams.

Remember, your dream journal is special. It is your secret thoughts that occur only in your mind while sleeping! Take some pride in writing it, and lucid dreaming will come much easier to you! Until next time, happy dreaming!
